USB port modification

Hello all,

I've searched and searched but cannot come up with a place to start.

I want to take a USB Port (similar to )
and configure it so that it will play a video (which is on a USB drive
that i insert into USB Port) on my TV.  I want to put a video on my
USB drive, stick it in the device and play the video on my TV.

I'm guessing that the USB Port will need:
-some software to read the drive and software such as a player to play
the video;
-to somehow send the video over audio and video cables that will
insert into my TV.

Can someone refer me to any books or internet sources that will give
me some instruction.  I'm pretty good at Visual Basic but I'm guessing
this will require a more complex language like machine.

Thanks in advance!

You might take a look for "media extenders".

This isn't exactly what you want, but it does have
the advantage that it is connected wirelessly, so
you can put it next to the TV set and forget about it.
There are probably some more successful versions than
this one. The trick is, to find something that supports
as many movie formats as possible.
