You're going to have to decipher what encoding your TV supports and then find a process and software to encode your files.
Frankly I think getting some media player may be easier but still have to decode what the player supports.
My TV is a Panasonic TX-L42U3B. I have over 100 films recorded from TV onto shop bought blank video cassettes. My thought is to transfer them onto HDD's via my desktop PC and then put the HDD's into an enclosure. The problem is my TV doesn't have a USB port, although I think it has an Ethernet one. Is there any other way of viewing the films on my TV using this method. I'm trying to save myself the laborious job of transferring all these films onto DVD and viewing them off a HDD instead.
Thanks in advance
