I haven't read the previous posts but nearly all late model flat panels 
I've dealt with have some sort of divx/mpeg4 compatible media player 
built in with USB access. My 2yr old TCL LCD 40" has one. It works great 
although some slowdown on intense scenes. I haven't touched it since I 
got my PS3 :) ... actually, I haven't watched anything not originating 
from my PS3 since I got it :)

Although they become redundant pretty quick in our circles, they are 
great for the non-technical. I just wish they would support some viable 
way of upgrading/flashing to support more codecs. I don't think I'll be 
seeing an rs232 port an LCD TV anytime soon :)
