yes, my bad for not checking what file types my new Panasonic HDTV plays. I just figured a brand new set would kwim?
It seems like it is the only plasma on the market that cannot play .avi files. Neither does the new Panasonic blueray player we bought the same day! But.....it takes no time to convert into mkv files.
Haven't had time or the money to pick up a wireless router yet- bet I will be able to play an avi file movie on the computers media center but not be able to stream to the tv.
