spefically says - "from your laptop, external HD, USB stick, memory card (SD, MMC, SM, CF etc), or a DVD/ CD in all common formats"
dont know about the "from your laptop" bit
the rest sounds good, but for 50eu i wouldnt be arsed queuing up at half six or whatever time them maniacs do be outside lidls at...
im assuming it'll play divx and vcds? doesnt say on the website exactly what formats
it says all common formats,
which for lidl would mean mpeg1/2/4
Here a picture from the leaflet
when you say from Usb, does that mean it will play any video directfrom a usb key/stick when its plugged into it?
as long as the drive is foramtted as fat32, then yes
how would you connect your laptop to this?
thats what i dont understand
maybe they mean by copying to a usb drive
the manual is here
and doesnt mention a netowrk port or anyhting like that
Will backed up DVDs on a hard drive connected to this through USB - will it play them?
depends what format there in.
the one i had before would play bin/cue or iso images,
but would play vobs direclty from a video_ts folder
thanks for that eolhc!!!
According to that manual subway linked to:
i bought one 2 years ago that supported a 250gig drive plugged in.
the Lidl blurb is fairly blatant about it supporting external HDD (though it does also say laptop which is nonsense)
might see if I can pick one up and try it out - its only 50 lids after all.
EDIT - the previous Silvercrest player sold by Lidl said the same thing (512k max) in the manual but plenty of boardsheads managed to get it working with their HDD
