    My new to me Van came with a TV, Avtex L186DR I just cannot believe that in 2014 it uses the FAT filing system which was in use on the first computer I ever bought in 1993 with the Windows 95 operating system and only 128 mb of storage.
    (FAT) Which is less than useless for putting films, TV shows etc. onto a USB stick and watching in France or elsewhere on the continent of Europe. I have fitted a 100w solar panel and had hoped that I will be using Aires or the cheaper ACSI sites and not having to buy electricity, so the Avtex will run on 12v, I just wonder if Avtex know the technology has moved on in the 21st century?

    My older avtex (w163dr) will take an SD card - I have a 64gb one (formatted as MSDOS on my Mac) and it reads that card ok - I have 4 SD cards with about 20 films on each...

    We have an avtex and have all our films on a portable 1tb hard drive which plugs into the Usb.
