Internet Features

The Toshiba 46XV648U does not offer internet connectivity. This is perhaps unusual, but not unheard of, for a TV in this price range (based on the original $1799 MSRP, at least).

Local Media Playback

Photo Playback (2.0)

Photo playback on the Toshiba 46XV648U is done using the USB port and a thumb drive. The interface is dead simple, and not very robust at all. The only feature is the ability to run the photos in a slideshow or leave the photos static. Perhaps the firmware isn't completely in place, because we couldn't get the TV to recognize about half of the JPEGs on our drive. It also couldn't read GIFs, though this is a more common problem with TVs. Overall, it's a weak implementation the feature.

Music & Video Playback (0.0)

The Toshiba 46XV648U does not play back video clips or music through the USB port, which is a big disappointment from a TV this expensive.

Other Media

There are no other media features.
