Will I need a USB port on AVR to playback music files?
I usalley listen to radio music w/ the big TV turned off, (programed activity w/ Harmony remote) in the car I have a USB port so I keep all my music on flash drives.
I haven't moved any of my music files to the HTPC because I'm thinking that the big TV would have to be on to select what to play
(was actualley concidering a very small TV to select).
Edit: I have a Sony BD player it has a USB port (w/ big TV on)however when I inserted the flash drive and from Sonys menu under play music there where no files to choose from?
Planning on upgrading the AVR (concidering Yamaha 1800 no USB/ Yamaha 1085 USB plus HD radio or Yamaha 3800 has every feature anyone could ask for) and want to make an educated guess to meet my current requirements.
I post in HTPC section because it's somewhat PC related and PC usalley are the most knowlegdable.
