Not rare, just with a proprietary file format that apparently isn't intended to be played on a PC.

It won't play on anything but the original device. It's not any standard format, and there's not even any recognizable patterns in the sample file. You have 21 megabytes of data there, but it could be from /dev/random as far as analysis can tell.
I've been here long enough that I think I can forgo a signature.

Agree on the proprietory format... I ran it by a codec detector that I use and it is likely the format they used they dropped the headers and footers to obscure it as it is the only file it has ever failed me on.

For moderators, remove this thread if you want as I give up on opening those probably encrypted files.

Thread's probably worth preserving as a warning to anyone else who owns (or is thinking of buying) one of these TVs.

No hurry to delete here.
There are people that embrace the Oxford comma and people who don't. Never get between these people when drink has been taken. I use the Oxford comma and always will. The rest can sod off.
