A quick survey of these brands yielded no results if one is looking for 
a universal player that will play a DVD full of MP3s; also, I believe 
they are not able to show DVDs full of JPEGs. It looks like the 
DVD-anythings must be formatted as DVD video (or DiVX). I am sure there 
must be a strong reason for this, since it sure would be convenient. An 
expensive workaround may be to buy a Mac Mini and hook it up to the TV. 
Or, the way of the future will probably be card readers.
