But not every tv does and do you have to run an ethernet cord to your tv?- if you have a wifi blu-ray player then you don't need to.

I too have a Panny TV (G20) and bought the adapter for it, so I don't intend to buy another for the BDP I just got as a gift.

would be cheaper to run a long network cable into the living room occasionally just to hook up the BDP for firmware updates.
