    USB Port on 40HFL2809D

    Hi,

    I have purchased a 40HFL2809D and there are a USB port. I have a 1TB external Western Digital HDD (the passport type).

    Are there anybody out there that know if I can use a HDD like that along with 40HFL2809D to play movies, music and pic.

    Thanks in advance

    /Steen

    If it supports USB2, then there shouldn't be any problem. I'm guessing the HDD uses USB3 by default, but has a fallback for USB2. And the TV most probably uses USB2.

    Also, because it's 1TB, you might even be able to use it for video recording, as well (if the TV supports such function). Though in that case you'll probably have to format it, and you can only use it with the TV, I think.

    But if you already have both, then why don't you simply try storing a movie in the HDD, and plugging it in? If it's incompatible, it simply won't work, it shouldn't explode or anything. Or have you tried, and it's not working, and you want to know whether it SHOULD work?

    Hi aatu,

    Thanks for your quick answer.
    My HDD also support USB2.0, so there should be no problem.
    That model do not support video recording.
    I expect to get the HDD today, I will take the chance and hope it will work

    Hi Steen,

    I just wanted to ensure you were aware that your TV model is a Hospitality TV and therefore certain features may function differently than on our Consumer TV models.

    Should you have any questions about your TV, please do contact our Professional Display Solutions team for further assistance:

    http://www.support.philips.com/suppo..._selector.jsp?
    Select your country and preferred language, then Contact.
    The contact details for Professional Display Solutions is further down the page of options.

    Alternatively you can email in English via the following address:

    Best regards,
    Ina
