You can buy DVD players that accept USB keys. I have one. Mine's a piece of shit though, so make sure you pay more than £30 for it.
And of course, there are hard disk versions too - some of which are advertised above.
check his recent post history and it should be there.
Alternatively, get a ps3 and you can either stream stuff from your PC or stick it on your usb drive/blank dvd and run it direct.
I guess I can get a chipped xbox.
Needs a fairly decent connection though, and nearly all versions of the ps3 have built in wireless.
I bought one of these from play.com for £90 http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?DriveID=572
Plug it in and connect to TV via RGB cable that comes with it, plug the external drive into it, BOSH. View through your TV. Very simple, very good.
