Thread: HDD to TV

  1. #1

    Default HDD to TV

    Hi,

    My question is a sorta strange one, but if someone can help me out that would be great.

    Is it possible to connect an external hard drive to a TV using some software on it and a usb to s-video cable?

    For example i have mpegs and avis on my external hard drive which connects to my PC via USB 2.0 would it be in anyway possible to get a cable and software to connect it directly to my TV?

    Thanks

    I don't think so...
    There are however portable hard-disk video players, pretty expensive and useless if you ask me.

    No. You would need something to decode the video, which essentailly means additional hardware. You can however buy "harddrives" that have built in support for video out.
