Was having problems with server. Sorry for long outage.
That certainly was a long outage, at least judging from your last post here.
Have you had a chance to look at the Android USB stick computers. I’m using one, an iMito MX1 connected to my 42″ otherwise wifi-less TV, and am very happy with it. Using it for Netflix, Youtube, and a few games.
Well it wasn’t out since the last post, just last 2 months which is too long.
I have seen some Android USB stick-sized devices used as media playback devices. I don’t know of any that can plug into the HDTV USB port to pull power, but wouldn’t surprise me if that existed.
UPDATE – Ah here we go. This device pulls USB power and outputs HDMI. The funny thing is that just a plain USB stick with video files will play on the HDTV, but not every format is supported.
