    can anyone help me with this question right i have a hd tv and in my manual book it says it can take a 1tb external usb hard drive but what i want to do is to connect a bigger external usb hard drive maybe a 2tb or 3tb is it possible
    to connect to a hd tv maybe using a device or something so i can use a bigger hard drive i have heard of some type of media Players that you connect to the tv and plug in a hard drive and that lets you use a bigger hard drive is that true so is there any way to connect a bigger external usb hard drive to a hdtv can this be done

    If you have the ability to install apps then install Kodi. Otherwise you might want to look into setting up a NAS.

    ok then could i use a Android 7.1 box then it is a new box that has apps and you can install some apps but i dont need it for that what i need it for is to watch my movies on my hdtv now it does have a limit of 1tb

    so if i bought one of theses boxes would there still be a limit then of 1tb on my tv what i want to do is use a 4tb external usb hard drive can i use it with this box would this still have a limit on my tv so is there maybe any device that lets you bypass the limit on my tv so i can connect a bigger external usb hard drive to my tv
