Not totally sure about the USB. You'll have to lookup what format the USB input accepts.
Sadly will have to wait another weekend, this one might get rained out (YAY!)
But no on the USB, It has a usb plug, but apparently it's only for charging cell phones??!! (yes that's in the manual) And I thing mouse clicks can page up/down the screen?
So unlike my new smart TV, the usb won't read files, but it says I can use a chrome cast. Do I have to go thru a wi-fi to cast, or can I cast direct from phone/tablet etc to a chromecast, do you know?
besides RBE, should I be looking for anything else specific?
Obviously lumens, clarity, dark spots... ???
Oh, and my Bose can output rca composite, s-video, & component; the Acer can accept composite, hdmi & VGA. Is it worth $2-3 to get a component to vga adapter or will there be no noticeable visual difference on screen? (regular DVD's not BR)
