Simplest way to share harddrive between 2 TVs

Recommended Posts



We just replaced our 13 yr old CRT TV with a new LCD that allows playing movies from an external USB HD. I saved a couple of movies to an external HDD I use for backups, hooked it up, and it works like a charm.

We are also planning to get another TV for the bedroom, probably same one.

I was thinking of getting a 1.5 TB external HDD - looks like they can be had for about $90 - to play movies. Since a regular DVD is about 4.7 Gb and a DivX'd movie is less than that, I should have enough space for a couple hundred movies and then some.

Now, the question is - what is the easiest, simplest, cheapest way to share this drive with a TV upstairs, short of running a physical cable ? I don't have time or guts yet to build a dedicated media center. I was thinking there should be a way to set up a router with a couple of USB WiFi adaptors - or is it not feasible ? The TV is not internet-capable, just has a couple of USB ports.

Thanks !
