Hello everybody
I have a Panasonic TX-65GZC954 OLED TV installed in my Control4 setup. The appropriate driver was installed via SDDP.
How can I start Netflix, Amazon Prime, Zattoo directly? In the Composer under Panasonoic App, not programing ... How can I assign the apps?
Many thanks for your support!

U can assign the "app page" to a custom button on the remote. I gotta check tonight how I did it, buts easy

Thanks a lot!
I would like to start Netflix or Amazon Prime directly on the SR260 watch list. For that I should be able to select the apps in the driver?

Panasonic doesn't support universal mini drivers, devices which do are listed in the driver docs. Your pretty much limited to listing the Panasonic App menu under the watch menu. Selecting that will open the smart hub on the tv, from there you can select youtube etc.

Thank you so far, I am. So it's hardly worth buying a Neeo if I can't list the apps ...

Yes, but in this case it's a limitation of the TV, not the Neeo...  :)

The Neeo is quite a bit better at a lot of other things (lights, thermostats, audio service selection/playing), etc. than the SR260, but if you want it for starting Netflix with one press on your Panasonic, you're out of luck.

Yea I am BIG panasonic guy myself and have a new OLED too. I really wish I could directly launch mini apps but it can't be done. At least the IP integration is rock solid. In two years of having it I've only ever had to hard power cycle the TV once, and I've never messed with Composer or C4 becuase the TV lost connection. It is solid.

But yea every time you want to use Netflix you need to open the Panasonic app launcher first then open netflix. 

You could always get a Roku and have all the Mini Apps your heart desires. They're Only $50, and a Panasonic OLED+Roku is way better than a Samsung QLED with mini apps could ever hope to be.

And if your adamant on using built in Panasonic apps then this should be an option. I've never used it - but its there. It'll do Netflix Mini App

But that driver probably costs more than a Roku and it only has the one Netflix Mini App. So your prob still better off getting a Roku and using free drivers than paying for the Panasonic Driver.

Thank you for your suggestion. I now turn to the developers of the Universal Minidriver from C4. I'm not giving up yet 😉

I would stick with the current driver and just assigns the Apps page to a custom button - since it's a minor inconvenience and there are other apps Amazon prime also available.

The TVs are really good only drawback is high power consumption in standby when WOL is activated - its 15w on my 2018 OLED.
I did however program a workaround and turn it in via IR and use IP control for the rest
