Does newer TV firmware let you play files of 4GB or more?

by MrNalon / June 2, 2011 9:34 PM PDT

I have a UE32B6000 32" LED TV. Friends of mine have newer models, such as the C5800. Using an external HDD formatted in NTFS, I can play films - except anything of 4GB and above. However, when they plug the drive into their TVs, they CAN play files of 4GB or above.

My question is, will updating my firmware rectify this problem? My present firmware is 2010/04/21_002010

Thanks, but I think you misunderstand.
