Hi all, hope this is the right forum.


We've just got a Panasonic DMR-BWT760 DVR, mostly for its internet features (don't currently have an aerial - using Sky for that).


Setting up the network works fine; I can set it to Wired, and it gets a DHCP lease, I can ping it etc.


But selecting any networking function (other than the connection test) results in "Can't connect". I had a look with wireshark to see what was happening, and it tries to connect to with https, which results in a bad certificate. Looking at the same site with a web browser also reports a cert problem, showing "unknown issuer".


Weirdly, the shop did a firmware upgrade just before we picked it up, and he says it was working fine.


Any thoughts?

I didn't _change_ what region - the guy at the shop upgraded the firmware and region-unlocked it before we picked it up; I would have thought that meant he'd done enough to get it going? Where would I find the region stuff?


Hmm - just realised I'm using region for two meanings here ... are they linked? Is it because it's region-unlocked for DVDs that it won't talk to the internet?


BTW - this is actually my father's machine; I can't try things unless I'm visiting.
