Make an Avtex TV play more movie files.
The TV we have is a Avtex L186DRS LED TV/DVD/PVR Combi with Satellite Decoder. It plays movies, music, pictures etc stored on a USB stick or drive and it has a DVD player built in. It connects straight to the satellite dish with no decoder as it is also built in, it’s even 3D capable and full 1080HD. It’s a superb TV with good sound from a rear facing speaker and has a brilliant picture.
We use none of these feature except one, The ability to watch films and movies stored on a hard drive attached via one of it’s USB sockets. By default the Avtex TV’s only play MP4 movie files. However if you press the Source button and then type in 0852 on the remote it allows you to change some settings in a hidden menu, select USB at the bottom of the list and change it to on, The TV now plays MKV, AVI and DIVX files too.
