Are you also the lucky owner of an LG 47LD450 and want to have it play DivX movies directly from your massive external hard drive?. It’s super easy to do and costs either nothing or very little to do.
Here’s how I did it.
Get this universal remote control One For All URC3920 Slimline Remote Control
- Put some batteries in the remote, and set it up for TV use as follows
- Press TV, then hold the magic button until it flashes twice, then lazily use the search mode to get the right code for the TV by pressing channel + repeatedly
- Once the TV turns off you have the code, so press magic again to store it
Your new remote is now hooked up to talk to your TV, to finish
- Turn on the TV and point the universal remote at it then press magic once
- Enter 00018, then use the password 0413 to enter the service menu
- Goto menu 3 (third one down)
- Change USB from 0 to 1, then turn the TV off and on again to enable
Now when you goto media on the options screen you will see Movies, Images, and Music! enjoy

Lately I have ordered quite a few items from the usual chinese suppliers on ebay such as laptop keyboards, batteries, power supplies, wii bits a bobs… Now a couple of those things were either crappy quality, delayed, or in one case the seller just wasn’t too cool to do business with.
So I didnt give them positive feedback… what did they do?.. they offered to fully refund me if I just changed it to positive feedback.. which natually I did, how many other people do?.. probably lots…
So I got these OK products from china… and full refunds… just for a feedback switch… good or bad? – well good and bad… don’t know…

Well I am one month in to owning my E71 and felt the need to say it’s almost certainly the best gadget I have ever owned, how so much is crammed into such a thin solid metal case i have no idea. It’s just crazy that something one centimetre thick that fits in your pocket can have GPS, long battery life, a decent camera, every wireless network connectivity you could want in this day in age including Wifi and HSDPA, Bluetooth, IR, Mini USB.. expansion memory slot.. menu’s are fast and watching videos is no problem with the free DivX player. You can fit loads of music and movies on an 8GB micro SD card which you can pick up easily for just over £10.
It looks great, comes with a smart leather case, and if you want to use your own headphones pick up a 2.5 to 3.5mm audio jack from ebay, I got one for 15p including delivery from China. Sign up to Three and get the handset for free, add their Broadband-Max package and get enough download capacity to see you through the month, install Fring and have all your instant messaging on all the time so you can chat with friends while you wait somewhere…
The A-GPS connects in seconds here in London, even without the assistance of a connection and only using satellites it hooks up in seconds, use Nokia maps loader to get maps of all the countries you are likely to go to and you can stick the world on your 8GB card so you can find out where you are anywhere in the world without having to incur data roaming charges.
If you are in the UK and want a new phone, it’s a no brainer, buy an E71 and if you are in the situation I was where I was comparing the N95 8GB and the E71, then go for E71 – you won’t regret it.
