Resetting Netlfix on the Panasonic Viera Smart tv didn’t really go as planned.  However, I did resolve my issues.  Netflix wouldn’t load at first.  I tried to remove the channel (they call them apps) and I guess you can’t actually do that.  I also tried the netflix cheat code to get into the settings menu.  No luck.

What did work was changing my DNS entries for the TV.  Why that?  Who knows.  I certainly don’t know.  Everything else on the TV worked including youtube and amazon video.  I changed the DNS to default instead of my standard Google DNS of 8.8.8.8.

This is a 2012 smart tv.  I hate smart tvs.  Not just hate but I could go to bed thinking of ways to smash them. They never get updated.  The UI is never user-friendly and when things go wrong you can’t do much about it.  Give me a roku or googlecast any day of the week!
