I have a USB drive and a USB hardrive and both play full HD through my TV's USB port no problem, its the TV that decodes the file as it plays so sometimes your TV might not like the codec used, I have avatar HD 1080P and my TV played the video but not the audio so I used an audio converter to convert the audio and now it plays fine.

Just think of your TV as a PC and it needs the correct drivers/codecs to play certain video files, my LG is connected to my router so it gets firmware updates sometimes like the xbox 360 when you switch it on...

HD content needs around 5mb a second and USB 2.0 far surpasses this, you'll be fine.

YOUR EXTERNAL DRIVE WILL LAST 10 TIMES LONGER IF YOU SIMPLY STORE MOVIES ON IT , THEN DRAG N DROP WHAT YOU WANT TO WATCH ON YOUR PC... WATCH THEM, THEN DELETE THEM WHEN DONE..
