From what I have read, Panasonic TV's need a FAT32 filesystem with a 32k cluster size (the USB port on these TV's is really meant for flash drives).
The Goflex Desk comes pre-formatted with NTFS. I think you might have problems creating a 3TB FAT32 partition, so I suggest making 2 or more smaller partitions with at least one FAT32 partition. You can re-partition the drive in Windows Disk Management.

Hi, I might be able to assist you. But you did not leave a details.
Is the drive connected through a router?
Connected through Windows or Mac?
Do you have a separate medial player?
Basically what are all your parts?
As for mine, well you should see some below included in my signature. Right now I have a SonyInternetTV (GoogleTV) connected to my router and HDMI for video through a Panasonic TV. My Mac-Mini picture is also connected through HDMI to the TV. I have a GoFlexHome NAS to the router and computer through the router so they can all connect to each other. I just recently purchased a new Backup Plus external drive to the computer. I hope this isn't way to confusing. It took me some experimenting but have it right. I can access all my videos, music, pictures through the media player in SonyInternetTV. Crystal clear 5.1 sound. The key for me was the Sony but I believe you should be able to get pretty much the same effect using your TV as a monitor for your computer and using it's onboard media player. It's not difficult to access the Backup Plus. As for backing up the whole system well I can do it but choose not too. I record nothing but movies and my music on the drive and no other files. If you have specifc questions please leave me a message. I don't frequent the boards that often but will answer.
