The first question you need to answer would be, "Does your TV support Viera Link?" Most newer Panasonic TVs and other A/V devices support it, but it's hit or miss (usually miss) with other brands. I know Onkyo is one brand that has stepped up and offered Viera Link support on some of its devices, but I'm not sure about others. If your LG brand TV doesn't support Viera Link, you are out of luck and you'll have to rely on seperate remotes for the TV and home theater. If your TV does support Viera Link, the next question would be, "Are you using HDMI to connect the devices?" Viera Link can only communicate over HDMI (not component video, S-video, coaxial, composite, digital optical audio, etc.) If either of the aforementioned questions were answered "no", you can still connect your devices and use them normally, but you won't get the benefit of Viera Link communication between the devices. In that case you will likely have to keep using separate remotes.

Re: SET UP VIERA LINK PANASONIC PT960
Can you explain a bit more please. What exactly is the problem? Are you getting any picture or audio through to the TV? Are you getting any picture or audio through to the home theatre? Have you got the home theatre setup via HDMI? Have you connected the audio from the cable to the home theatre via optical or phono? What model is your LG LCD HDTV? I already have the manual in front of me for your home theatre system. If you can give me some more information I can help you out. Thanks.

Make sure the receiver is set to use HDMI. Follow your instrution manual on how to set up the HDMI setting. Also, just try a regular HDMI cable. You don't have to spend a lot of money for the cable. All of the HDMI are the same. I was having trouble with my HDMI and read a lot about the cables so, try a $6.99 cable.
Also, make sur you have the cable push in all the way into the TV and receiver. Hope this helped.
Its really a software type problem i have a sony hometheatre that wont play certain videos. When tvs/home theatres are made they get whatever software that is put in witch most videos require the basic stuff sometimes its outdated or just not compatable.
I have had the same problem with my Panny DMR-BS850 which was resolved by changing the ethernet cable I was using which had only 4 contacts on each plug end for one which has 8 contacts. I tried all variations & combinations of IP & DNS before buying the new cable from my local pc store (£10 for 10m cable) and was relieved when setting the system to auto connect it worked within 3 mins. I think the slight delay was the router setting up a new address for the new hardware it detected.
My new cable states on it "Verified For Gigabit Ethernet" and is Cat 5e rated and I was assured that it will carry data for runs up to 95m long, which is contrary to the Panasonic support agent who told me to shorten my initial 5m cable to prevent signal degradation.
HI you need to run a set of phono cables from the tv audio out to the aux or any spare input on your system and set to prologic2 to get sound,the viera link is so that you can use one remote to operate most functions for tv and system.
For best results either use an s-video connector and RCA Red/White for the audio. If no s-video available, use comp which means composite (Red,Blue, Green) so the truest color can go from one unit to the other. On the back of the theatre system, plug everything into "output", on the panasonic, input.
Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.
DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.
You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.
Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.
