I have a Sony Bravia TV and would like to watch movies via USB. The TV is reading the USB correctly (can view .JPG files). I know Sony cannot read .AVI files but I would like to know what file type I need to convert .AVI files into so they can be read by Sony Bravia.

      MPEG 1 and MPEG 2 videos should be playable in your Sony LCD tv. In my case it works. Convert vedios to MPEG 2 (FULL HD-1080P) by using avs video converter.
