my lcd tv has a USB port. what is it used for?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have a samsung 6series 40" 1920x1080 LCD TV. What's the USB port used for? It's located in the back next to the HDMI plugs.

My Samsung TV has one too, it can be used to view photos from a USB drive. It doesn't support video and I'm fairly sure it doesn't do music either.

It will most likely be a service port for F/W upgrades and diagnostic feed back if the TV has been returned for a fault of returns.
