Hello a total noob here. i did my search to no avail so here goes.
i am buying an external plug'n'play hard drive for movies,pics and music. The Seagate 320GB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive (STM303204EHAB01) seems like a deal? And i started thinking about if i could play said media on my tv through a usb to av-in or usb to s-vid. The tv is not a new one with usb on it but it is not so old that it has rabbit ears.
Does such a cable exist and where can i find one. i dont want to put much money into this so anything expensive is out of the question, so is there a cable or something simple for this?
Thanks in advance

So you want to have your video, graphics, and music...play on your TV?

It's possible, I don't know why you would want to do it, if you don't have an LCD monitor, though. The reason I say that is that graphics and video files will look better on a monitor than they would on an older TV like I have...I would gain nothing by viewing them on TV and would lose viewing quality.

The key is...what is manufacturer and model of the TV?

You can look at the following links to get an idea of what's available: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=c...mp;aq=f&oq=
