I have a 4 year old Sony DAV-DZ270 Home theatre which only supports Audio and Photos through its USB Port. It has one HDMI Out port (and No HDMI In) There is no support for playing videos/ movies through its USB.

 

Is there any way to play Movies on a pen drive/ Hard Disk/ Digital Media Player through this player? is there Any way to create an HDMI In port? Are there any cheap add-ons that could help?

Nope. Why do you need it to play anything?

 

You should just connect your "whatever you want to play from" to the TV in question and let it send audio to this. I'm not looking this HTiB up(I don't, on principal, litter my harddrive with OM for HTiB when the owners of such should know what inputs it has...and tell us what it has).

 

What inputs does it have? Optical? Dig Coax? red/white analog?

 

And side note. It wouldn't matter if this HTiB included HDMI in. Every single HTiB I've encountered, the HDMI are relegated to 2.0 audio. So if you wanted 5.1 from a HTiB(like this one, where it is a DVD/BD player in one) you have to use the toslink/digital coax anyway.

Hi Sam! Nice to see you on this thread too (you've been of great help on my other post regarding replacement of my Technics Speakers for use with the Denon-AVR2311).

 

The HTiB mentioned here is what I have in the bedroom. Here's the links to the system's specs/panel images:-

The only audio input you have is analog. Mini on the front and RCA on the rear. Your only recourse is Dolby ProLogic.

 

And the specs for it mention nothing of USB video. Not even pictures.
