Connectivity

Input Ports (7.5)

The Toshiba 46XV648U does not abound with ports for a model in the so-called 'Toshiba Cinema series,' but it certainly has all the basics covered. There are only three HDMI ports (normally you'd find four on comparable models), no internet connectivity, and no DLNA support.

Output Ports (2.0)

The Toshiba 46XV648U has one analog audio output and one digital audio output, standard for most HDTVs.

Other Connections (0.0)

The Toshiba 46XV648U has no other connections, except the USB described below.

Media (1.0)

There is a USB port on the side of the Toshiba 46XV648U, used for viewing photos loaded on thumb drives. The software is certainly on the skimpy side, as it could only read about half the JPEGs we tried, and none of the GIFs.

Placement

The port placement on the Toshiba 46XV648U is decent, but the lack of a swivel base makes the rear ports difficult to access if you need to get to them frequently. At least there's one HDMI port and one composite AV port on the side for quick-changes.
