i wanted to report back in... i got the minoHD Flip camera. It shoots 1280x720 MP4 w/ aac.
It has a USB connection, and i've plugged it directly into the USB(HDD) port of my Samsung 46B630 TV, and....it works! The Media Play 2.0 software detects the camera and is able to access and play all the individual files in HD. pretty neat.
the Flip Video camera is getting a lot of press as being the new must have. it shoots 1298x720 h.264 mp4 w/ aac audio.
Anyone try this in the HDD USB port on your Samsung TV? I guess its not a deal breaker, being that it already also has hdmi connection anyway, but just wondering...
