[QUOTE=catmangym;2564453]I have a ext. hard drive full of movies and other shows i would like to know if I can purchase a player that would play them back.[/QUOTE]
Sure you can, like this one. I’m not telling you this one is the best. There are tons and tons of different playback devices so choose carefully depending on your needs. You could also use a computer and some software like the completely free VLC Media Player which can almost play anything you throw at it.
I’m not sure if you can transfer the files from your vip dvr to another player though.
