In reply to Ray Maines, Jan 2, 2011

Besides serving as an input for all sorts of usb electronic devices, most manufacturers periodically make firmware and other software updates to their HDTVs, and one way to update this on ones TV, is to download such from the manufacturers web site, using our computers (much as we currently do for our cameras); and, by copying or loading it to a USB flash drive (8 GB ones are as cheep as $13.00 or less on amazon.com), one can insert this USB drive into the USB slot on the TV, follow instructions as should be in your TVs Owners Manual or directly from the TVs Menus, and the TV is updated within seconds/minutes.
