    I used to carry loads of CDs but since I bought the TV with the USB port, I now have loads of films and quite a few TV series that I downloaded before leaving home. As USB memory sticks have become cheaper and I have replaced mine with bigger memory, I finished up with 6 smaller memory sticks, so loaded them up. Great space saving bit of kit.

    I currently use an HP memory stick. Theres a lot of different ones out there and I don't think theres much difference.

    If buying one try and get one that holds a lot of memory like 64g, and watch the read and write speeds.

    Don't know what your TV is. Ours in the van is a Cello, like many have, and it will record to a memory stick. In fact it came with one with the manual on it. It only seems to record what you're watching though, so limited usefulness but will play back AVI files recorded elsewhere.

    I take films on a terabyte passport drive, which will hold hundreds. (I think I have about 150 and still bags of room)

    Bill is correct but as I stated earlier make sure you know the minimum size, I have 2 Tv's that use a Usb stick one is minimum 32gb the other is 64gb. I made the mistake and had to buy another stick :Doh:

    I use a 2 TB Network Storage device which is connected to my iBoost system via ethernet cable and then I can play movies or music via wifi to iPhone or TV ( with the box I use ).
    On returning from trip out I update the storage device with new movies, TV shows and music. All runs of 12 volts as well.

    I'm currently working on a "Plex" system which will allow me ( or anyone I give the details too ) to access all my movies/TV shows/music on the home network server from anywhere via the internet. If I get is working will I will post on here my findings.

    from someone who is easily confused with technology, being born in an era before computers or telephones, I'm hoping you can point me in the right direction :Doh: our TV in the MH has a slot for playing DVD's one side and a red, yellow and white socket the other side. Is there a device I can load with films that will plug in to the red, yellow and white sockets to save me having to work out how to download all my films on to DVD's?
