TV and USB connection

In the process of helping out some family being able to watch some programmes *cough* ;) Have got a couple of 16gb usb sticks, but seeing as there is no such socket on the TV's,would this little gizmo help as a go-between?

My thinking is that the USB would plug into that, with the 3 other connections plugging into the TV so as enabling stuff to be watched from the stick. Am I right in thinking that, or am I off my rocker?

 

Advice appreciated!

Cheapo DVD player with USB input. Has to be able to read your files though.

 

I guess that would mean if it was DIVX compliant (the dvd player)?

 

Yeap.  Though if you want to play in hd you need something else.

Usually you do.  You need a chip that decodes mp4 or another HD format.

 

If he doesn't need a DVD player should just get a hdmi media player.

If your TV has a HDMI just connect a laptop to it and watch stuff like that via VLC media player

 

That's the single cheapest option like, but not the most elegant or convenient.

 

Its actually canny, takes like 30 seconds to set up and your ready to go.
