The external hard drive has to be connected to the computer, then from the computer you have to connect a cable to the TV. New TV's have a vga cable, where you can connect the computer directly to the TV, but some might have older cables.
Here is a list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_display_interfaces

I hope that helps..

Wharfedale DVD1100 PLayer does not detect USB Hard drive


It's unlikely that you're doing something wrong. Did you buy this DVD player as one that is supposed to support connecting hard drives? If not, then the player probably doesn't support connecting a hard drive.

Why won't it recognise external hard drive?


Your external hard drive is probably formatted in Microsoft's NTFS format. Older TVs do not recognize this file system.

Try to connect to the TV a Hard Drive formatted in the FAT32 file system. It is possible to convert NTFS drives to FAT32, using a computer.

Note: Even if the TV will recognize the Hard Drive, it may or may not play the files (videos, movies, music) stored on the drive. Check the TV's manual for the supported files.

How do I play movies from my external hard drive connected by USB to my MX android TV box.?


The TV should support the file system to read the directory structure of the Hard disk and also the the file type to read the video file. Try mpeg / jpeg file on a thumb drive on the same USB port.

How do I get a software update for dicksmith tv


Contact Dick Smith head office.

TV will be made in China with a DS Label.

Doubt if you will get update.

But take note....

The USB port on most TV sets will only recognise a Fat32 Formatted Hard Drive and the movies must be .AVI files.

see your tv manual for specifics.

I have a couple of TV,s with HD attached

I own a LG Plasma 42PQ2 tv and I want to watch movies from an external hard drive through the USB port but it does not show any movie files on the hard drive.


The USB port on the TV might not have enough power to power the external hard drive. Can you try putting a movie on a USB memory stick instead, and see if that works?

Video playback for toshiba 52xv645u


You can get some external HD Players that have TV out, but quality is not good. Can't you use a laptop with a Video out, or a USB Video Out? Or some DVD players have a USB port, I picked one up the other day for NZ25.00, It plays ALL DVD's and has a USB, so I can play movies from there. Solution or what?

Playing movies from external hard drive


Hi rox09
Well you can rip your DVD to any external drive using and third party DVD ripping software ,once you do that you will get a AVI,MPEG and any common fomats your DVD player supports

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps
