Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Like most HD TVs, the LC-32LE210E can use its USB port to play media files stored on a USB memory stick or hard disk. Its ‘Media Player’ option is easily activated via a button on the remote control, and provides a simple, straightforward interface for viewing photos, music and video files – it can even display .TXT wordprocessor documents as well as SRT and SSA subtitle files.

The media player file support should keep most users happy

Music fans will either be delighted or disappointed, as it will play MP3, AAC and WAV files, but not WMA. Likewise, most popular video containers are supported including MP4, MOV, AVI and MKV, but not WMV. I tested it with H.264, MPEG4 and Divx content, as well as some compressed audio, with no problems.

Yet the standout feature of the LC-32LE210E, is its ability to also timeshift and record programmes onto an external USB storage device. This is a smart idea – especially if you’re using the LC-32LE210E in a bedroom or playroom – as it provides basic recording features without the need to buy yet another set-top box. Unfortunately, you do have to do a bit of work before you can start recording.

Although the LC-32LE210E can play media files stored on a memory stick or hard disk that has been formatted using the FAT, FAT32 or NTFS file systems, it has to reformat your storage device using its own ‘Timeshift format’ before it can record any programmes.
