So far no TV does this.

You may have to play it on some box and then get some HDMI Splitter to get this working.

any guru help ?

I don't mind using wires but I guess there isnt one that does it. My xbox 360 will not play mkv files nor will my big screen sony but my little 20inch $99 special does. I dont wanna convert the file every time i wanna do it. I just thought a simple wire would do it like i do on my laptop which is broke .....

Simple wire?

Since the TV can't send the video to the next TV, can you elaborate what feature lead you to believe it's a simple wiring job?

-> Maybe the cheap exit is a second $99 20 inch and a second USB stick? Just hit play on both?

simple wire

Belive it or not My Pioneer Elite TV will not Play the File that is On the usb stick. So I just thought since the WAY over priced 65" elite would be able to do it with just a wire from my Samsung that does play it but I guess I'm sol. Next time I go get a tv I'm bringing the usb stick with me with all different files to see if it works. But thank you anyway now I can stop trying to plug in all the different wires I have

Let me share my favorite 2 little boxes.

The first won't play from your stick without a lot of work. But I'll share anyway because I like it. #1 Amazon Fire. The new one with 4K support and Alexa.

The second box I like is the WDTV Media Player. It plays almost everything you can find out there. Yes it might not handle a MKV with embedded 84quad encoding but that's so rare that most won't encounter it.
