A friend of mine has a HTIB system which allows him to plug a USB flash drive into his receiver and play video files from it on his 52" LCD TV. The TV I bought has a USB port on the side, but the manual seems to indicate that its just for viewing photos or playing music. The Samsung BR player I bought also has a USB port but I do not yet know what that actually does either. Something about BDLive whatever that is. Obviously none of this is hooked up yet, but I am wondering if either device will allow me to pull video files off my PC, place them onto a flash drive, and then play them through the TV. Does anyone dabble in this stuff and know the answer?
