    I'm looking for something that can connect to a TV, and will play most movie formats from a USB memory stick. Any ideas?

    edit: it doesn't have to be cheap

    Here you go. Connects to a TV, plays most video formats, plays from a USB memory stick, or external HDD, has an all-in-one card reader, comes with a remote. And it's cheap.

    Wow pretty neat.

    most snazy TV's these days come with that option, the whole mem. stick thing. yet they cost a bomb.

    Really cool! Thanks, didn't know that you could get one for such low price.

    I've been using my old Xbox as a media center but it has become tad too loud.

    Wow, cool! Thanks for the reply. [​IMG] This will be a perfect replacement for the broken dvd player in my Astro Van. I hope, since there are no moving parts on this device, it won't over heat like the dvd player did.

    That is pretty cheap! The 'Capable of decoding High Definition movie format' is a bit misleading. It doesn't even decode h.264, which is what most high definition content uses these days. [​IMG]

    "RM/RMVB"
    Hahaha, that sure takes me back... I remember when I would download animu and hentai in .rmvb formats, and then raging when the name of the hentai I last watched would pop up next time I started up Real Media Player.
