I recently purchased a Philips 55PFL5705DV/F7 LCD TV. I initially thought I was able to watch video files from a USB flash drive using the USB port on the back side of the TV. However, I was disappointed to find out that my particular model only supports viewing picture files and not video files (my fault - I had read the manual from a 7000 series TV by mistake when I purchased a 5000 series unit - oh well).
Does anyone know if it's possible to enable the USB port to view video media files? Specifically, does anyone feel a firmware upgrade would enable this, or is this simply a limitation of my particular model and that's that?
