Local Media Playback

The Panasonic TC-P37X2 can display photos from either SD/SDHC card slots or an iPod. The photos can be displayed as thumbnails, full screen, or in a slideshow. If you're making a slideshow, you can play music that's stored on the same device.

The Panasonic TC-P37X2 will play back music or video clips from SD/SDHC card slots or the iPod dock. The interface is pretty basic, and it sure ain't pretty, but it works. The TV's remote control buttons (play, pause, rewind, etc...) are used for individual clips, and the nav buttons are used to pick your way through the onscreen menus.

The interface was clearly not designed by Apple

The included iPod dock has a relatively short cable, and it's a proprietary fit, so don't expect to be able to extend it. However, it feels sturdy enough and will charge the battery while it's connected.
