For those of you who want to play your multimedia files on a TV without the need to hook up it up to a PC, Iomega has a solution for you.

The ScreenPlay TV Link is a small Post-it-sized box that connects to your TV via a composite, component, or HDMI connection. You can plug any USB (FAT32 or NTFS format) drive into the device and access all of its content through an easy-to-use on-screen interface.

We were also very impressed with the various file types the TV Link is compatible with. On the audio side, you can play MP3, AC3 (for Dolby Digital encoded audio), WAV, WMA, and OGG files. For video, the TV Link will play MPEG-1, MPEG-2, AVI, VOB (DVD), MPEG-4, DivX, and XviD-encoded movie files.
