    one option would be to convert the media into the format which your tv supports or to use a media player.
    Dell Studio 1555 - Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 @ 2.40 GHz, 3 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500 | PC - Intel Pentium G620 @ 2.60 GHz, Intel DH67CL, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD | Nokia Lumia 720 | Moto-G 16GB

    @wolverine12: I guess the videos u r playing are MKV format.
    First check whether they r supported or not in your monitor

    You need to re-encode them into mpeg4(h.264) format and they will play just fine. For that you need some good encoding software. Free or paid thats all.

    Sony TV's only supports Thumb Drives not more than some capacity & it play only mp4 & mp3, wav. [Note: It doesn;t support even usb HDD's also]

    Other formats are not supported.

    1.Video Converter Factory For Quick Conversion OF HD Video Clips(Gameplays/Walkthrough/Trailers,etc) using predefined mpeg2 profile
    2.Handbrake For movie conversion using custom settings
    although video converter factory is decent for long video conversion too and its free!!

    I suggest buying an external media player for the tv to play all files. Players like AC RYAN POHD, ASUS Oplay , WD mytv hd etc are good options and should be highly considered for anybody owning or buying an hdtv.

    Sony cant play lots of formats. Big reason why i switched to Samsung. Cheaper, same performance as a Bravia and plays all video formats under the sun.

    Dude, do some R&D and then write about all of it so confidently. I own a 40" BX420, which has a 500GB HDD always attached (powered through USB itself) and plays almost every format thrown at it. Only a few are not supported.

    Here's a pic of the manual:



    Yeah, I know that other sony's may not support this list, that is where the converters come in play
    RiG: C2D E7400 @ 3.78Ghz || Gigabyte G31M-S2l || 3Gb Transcend 800Mhz @ 1080Mhz || ATI Sapphire HD6850 || 750GB WD Caviar Black + WD 500Gb Caviar Green || Mron Alpha 700W || Logitech Z2300 :twisted:

    Portables: Soundmagic Es18 || Galaxy Nexus || Htc Explorer
