Trying to find a TV for the m/h which incorporates a usb socket for use with an external hard drive???
So I can watch movies directly without using a laptop etc...

I've experimented with my 19" Finlux and formatted a 300gb 2.5" hard drive in FAT32 as the instructions say only FAT32 is recognised. This failed so not to be beaten I've just reformatted in NTFS and it is now working fine

We watch films on our IPad on our tv while away with a Apple connector
It uses hdmi to connect, most new tv,s have hdmi lead conections and seeing that we take our iPad anyway it works for us ! Can view pictures as well !

Thanks Mick, I like the compact LaCie one in Andy's pic it will fit behind the tv so not be seen and the reviews are pretty good, I have got a 1TB HD but its completely full of pictures with thousands of pics I want to keep.

If you record a tv program or film onto a hard drive, will it play on any set or just the one you recorded from?
At home i record onto my BT vision box, don't think i can take them off there, but i can record onto a hard drive straight from the Tv, just wondering if they encrypt them or use their own formats.

From what I can gather this tv I have bought, on testing I have converted the files to mpeg2 which are less compressed than the avi files which they were. Also From reading the instruction book it looks like it will only play back recorded programs from itself.
I will keep you posted the more I use.
