    Hi,

    I'm in Canada and was wondering how people play their downloads without hooking up their computer to their t.v. I do have apple t.v. but I was wondering if anyone stores all their Cathe downloads onto a USB and insert it into their t.v. or other device to play from.

    I would also Luke to know. I have experimented with this. I don't think my tv plays video from usb directly. I have a wd live box that will. I also have a 500 GB external harddrive that plugs into the wd live. The only problem with the latter is that it takes a long time for it to compile library when I plug it into the tv. The new rotations have a lot of premixes so I'm not sure what the best solution is.

    My TV is supposed to play from a USB as well, but I've never had any luck with it. I just connect my laptop to my TV with an HDMI cable. I've found this very quick, easy, and inexpensive.

    Playing downloads

    Hi bpurcell,

    what video player do you play your download on?

    I find it difficult to have a clear image playing downloads on other video player a part from the blender. I think the only option, a part from ipad/mac/ios :mad::mad:, connecting laptop/tablet to TV with HDMI cable is the best one.

    I am not a IOS enthusiast!

    I usually use iTunes to play the files. This works great except for when my kids get yet another virus on my computer! :confused:

    I have a ROKU with a usb slot that works. Does Apple tv have something like that? ROKU also has an iPhone and android app that will stream from your device to your tv.
