Unlikely since I've yet to find a DVD player that accepts such a connection. What does work is an XBox 360 and your common PC running a media center version of Windows.
I'm looking to integrate the movies I have on an external hard drive to be able to play them on my HD tv. I have a Western digital 500 GB hard drive, and a Vizio 42 LCD tv.
I was considering buying a DVD player with a USB port or a DVD recorder with a firewire port to play them that way. Will this work? If so what would be a good one to purchase?
Any help here would be really appreciated. I have been reading posts and an abundance of tech material on dvd players and I can't find an answer to this question.
