    Any tips or tricks to uncover any posts about LG widescreens when the search engine refuses point-blank to let me search for LG as it's under two characters?

    TIA

    Put the model number straight after LG.

    You could try using wildcard characters, e.g.
    *LG*

    I know this is a pain in the arse but if people were searching for all posts with the word 'it' in them, the forums would grind to a halt in no time.

    No problem, I can see the reasons why it's done - though I guess by that argument people can do the same for everyting with "the" in it :p

    Got a Panasonic in the end - you can search for those :p
