SOURCE: TV CODES FOR 32'' RCA HD TV

if you bought a new rca tv, the codes have changed. until the cable companies catch up, you will need to use the remote that came with our tv AND the remote that came with your comcast box. Or, you can buy a LEARNING UNIVERSAL remote. this is different than a regular universal remote.

My Verbatim AC320GB 320GB USB 2.0 2.5" External Hard Drive has all of my content from my old PC, now that I want to edit its content on my macbook, I am unable to. help!


It depends on which format the drive is using. If it's FAT-32 you can immediately read and write from it with your Mac. However, if the drive is formatted as NTFS you'll need a third party driver or software in order to write to the drive. Your Mac can read from but not write to NTFS.

Your should be able to read the drive.

The TV should support the file system to read the directory structure of the Hard disk and also the the file type to read the video file. Try mpeg / jpeg file on a thumb drive on the same USB port.

USB memories formatted NTFS will read XviD videos. Ext3 or FAT formatted will copy or read XviD. MPEG4 is not supported but your TV may be able to show them directly via its USB PORT.

How to plug harddrive into USB and watch movies


What kind of hard drive do you have? If it doesn't have a USB end, then you need a special cable to do it. Depends on what kind of hard drive you have, SATA - USB or IDE - USB. And not all TV with USB slot supports movies through USB, some models supports only music/pictures. So make sure your TV supports movies through USB too.

When i plug my usb external hard drive in, it does not even show that there is a usb drive


If your Ext. HDD has been formatted in NTFS the TV might not detect it. Transfer the files on to a PC then reformat the HDD in FAT32. Then reload the movies , most probably the TV will read the files.

I own a LG Plasma 42PQ2 tv and I want to watch movies from an external hard drive through the USB port but it does not show any movie files on the hard drive.


The USB port on the TV might not have enough power to power the external hard drive. Can you try putting a movie on a USB memory stick instead, and see if that works?

I tried plugging in my WD hard drive to my DVD player to watch movies but the player wouldn't recognize it. Thank you!


First thing is to check what format the HDD is using - if it's been formatted on a Windows box, it's likely to be NTFS - and a lot of consumer electronics devices can't read NTFS, just FAT or FAT32.

Phillips 1TB HDD problem, playing movies hrough DVD player (USB)


My question would be are the movies in the right format. Just because they play on your computer does not mean they will play on you DVD.NTFS or FAT 32 would have no bearing on this. They are simply data per sector protocols and are related to magnetic storage devices.You may need the proper codec for you computer so it can make a DVD you player can play.
