Of course you will need a compatible router for this, but I think it works from what I've read.
My router is in the closet next to my TV. My laptop is upstairs and is wireless. I'm not even worried about that yet. I couldn't even get AVI files to play that are DVD quality or lower. The tumbnail shows up, but the file won't play.
I just read the HMG pages from the manual. I will see if I am getting one of the error codes listed on page 110. I'll worry about 1080p content after I have a little success with SD & 720p in various formats.
I might try a few files on a thumbdrive plugged directly into the TV. One other thing I was thinking about: given the fact that the manual says digital cameras and media card readers will work in the USB port of the 6020, why wouldn't a USB hard drive work? The manual also says FAT, FAT32, and NTFS file formats are recognized. It also says not to use anything with the USB port other than what they recommend. What could plugging a USB external hard drive into the 6020 do to it?
It is probably dumb to think that it might work. What is the difference in processing capabilities required to read a USB thumb drive versus a USB hard drive?
