Looking at the manual it supports mpg, avi and mp4 video playback from a FAT or FAT32 USB thumb drive

You can download the manual from here - click here and then go to page 41. Note that only FAT16 and FAT32 are supported.

If you TV is set to HD mode, then you may have a problem as it will not see anything else apart from the HD cables.

You should have a USB or EXT, which will find it.
