    Hi

    I am not good with all this so i just wanted to ask a very simple question.

    I am buying a 42 nch Hitachi Plasma Tv fro my TV room
    I just read there is a USB port in it,

    Does that mean I can attatch my external hard drive and see the movies on the TV which i have it on the hard drive

    Thanks a lot
    suraj

    Probably not, usually the USB port on TVs allows you to view the pictures stored on USB sticks and maybe hard drives.

    I'm pretty sure you won't be able to watch digital movies with just a hard drive and a plasma TV, yes. Maybe get a small computer or other device to use in the loop?
