If you told me it stopped at 2 hours I would note something else but TVs have poor video players and here's the thing that blows minds. If it plays on the PC it does not mean it plays on the TV.
Again, all about the encoding and the makers didn't tell us exactly how to encode so you take a balky video, re-encode and try again.
I've got an older LG tv and I like to plug my hard drive in and play movies and TV episodes from it. Everything was fine until about a year ago and now some new movies that I've added will stop playing and just go back to the beginning of the movie. It's quite strange. It will only happens to some movies. It happens at different times for each movie but it's always the same time for that movie. What I mean is let's say MovieA will stop at 47mins into it and go back the beginning, every time at 47 mins. MovieB will stop at 28mins into it. Movie C will play all the way through no problems.
I've been able to watch the whole movie on my PC and on other TVs but for some reason not on my LG.
I'd love it if someone knew what the hell has gone wrong with my TV.
