    Any body know if it's possible to use a usb powered DVD player plugged into the usb ports on the side and get them to play a movie using media player or otherwise???

    Thanks for the help in advance!!

    I don't think the Google TV USB ports can provide the power necessary to power a USB DVD player but you can check that by looking at specifications for both. Also I am not aware of software available for Google TV to play DVDs through the USB port but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist although since I don't think you can overcome the power drain issue, the software issue is moot.

    Unless the DVD player shows up as a generic usb drive, I don't think it will work due to nonexistent drivers.
