what do you mean just download it?confused.gifninja.gif
usually blu ray movies are in MKV format/container, if you TV supports MKV files then yeah you can do it.
give it a try, and see if it works.

my bro has a smasung blu ray player thats supports MKV, so he just throws it on USB drive and watches them from his blu ay player.

Well not necessary download it, but like some blu ray movies come with a digital copy. If I put that on my comp , then on a USB, would it play it? (plug n play)

Sony bravia 40HX800. I'd like to try playing some of my videos that are in avi format. I don't think that format is supported though, can I convert it to a format that is supported?

Files from a USB device need to be compatible with the following file formats...

- Still images: JPEG format or RAW format (preview only)

- Music: MP3 format

- Video: AVCHD, MP4 (AVC) or MPEG1 format (not playable in some cases)

Yeah I saw that . So I tried converting a .avi to mp4, and I only got sound. I tried a .avi to mpeg and it said it could not play file. Maybe its just my thumb drive? I formatted it to fat32. Getting irritated with this.
