Why is it that you have to jump through hoops to get the MediaConnect software?
I have a 46PFL7705D and I have heard the dongle is free from 1 person and has a cost from others. I have also heard it doesn't work well so I don't want to buy one especially since I am hard wired in now and can get software updates.

As I understand it, I should be able to use the MediaConnect software to view video files from my computer on the Tv, correct?
How do I go about getting the software without a dongle code?

I am on a limited minutes plan on my cell phone and don't want to spend a bunch of time on hold or talking with a support person to get a code or find out I can't get one without buying a dongle.

What is the story with this? Can I get a code? Will it work wired? Is the dongle free with this Tv or do I have to buy one?
