European LG TVs get USB playback thanks to hack

Have more than just a little bit of spare time on your hands? Might we interest you in this hack that will enable playback from a USB drive over LG televisions? This hack currently works only on European hardware, namely the LH, LF and selected LU models, so for those of us living Stateside, we’re out of luck for the moment. You will need to downgrade the firmware to version 3.15 first before the hack can commence, followed by navigating through various service menus. At least it gives your LG TV a new lease of life, especially if you have tons of media to share with family and friends over the TV without having to go through the hassle of burning images and video onto a DVD to play it back via a DVD player – just stick in your USB flash drive and you’re good to go!
