I have been putting my entire dvd collection on my computer so I can stream it to my internet connected tv. I was trying to think of other ways to get the data to my tv without having to stream it, b/c my computer has to run the entire time I watch a movie or the movie will cut off. I was thinking of buying an external hard drive, about 2tb, and loading everything on it. Then I could just plug it into my tv's usb port, and then the HDD would only run when I access it. I have a Samsung UN55D6900 tv with wireless, networking, and usb 2.0. Would this work or is there some pitfall I am not seeing? Or is there a better option I do not know about?
