Samsung Portable Blueray SE-506 and LCD/PLASMA

by tester321 / April 16, 2012 3:49 PM PDT

Can someone advise me which model Samsung LCD/PLASMA etc i can connect a portable Blueray/DVD to TV using USB. The brochure that came with my SE-506 shows it connecting to TV via USB, but no details of its model.

I have tried with no luck on la40b750 but i am aware that is quite an old model.

Many thanks in Advance

To connect with USB means that something like a PC would be required to read the media, decode and decrypt and then play the content. I think a PC would be one solution and a cheaper solution would be a BD player.

Thanks for your reply.. Things have moved on since the sharing of DVD over lan or Aynet or DLNA.

Samsung now market there External Blue ray readers as ODD devices, and they specify in the manual
that it can be directly connected to a LCD that complies with the new ODD AV connectivity standard.
The brochures and web links on this product clearly show illustrations of it connecting directly, but also a disclaimer, that the equipment must support this new standard.

I was hoping a SAMSUNG product representative could provide details of which new model Samsung LCD/LED
support this.

"What does the "AV Connectivity" mean?
Although a normal ODD cannot be connected to a TV directly, the product can be connected to devices (TVs, digital frames, etc.) that support USB interfaces and can then be used as a USB memory device. "AV Connectivity" refers to this functionality. "

If they don't tell you, don't buy it. Here I see there are some advances but there are also severe limitations and more.

I'm unsure what the benefit of putting the BD software component into the HDTV would be as this would force firmware updates for the HDTV when a new BD encryption is rolled out.

While I don't see this being a viable product and one that could upset the consumer, you have your reason for wanting this over the usual BD player.
