Some of the new Samsung and LG LCD's will have USB ports on them.
 
Only Samsung's new flagship 750 series has what is called Wiselink PRO 2.0, which is the only one that has video capabilities. All the others are picture/slideshow only.
 
I believe this model will be a FS exclusive and should be arriving mid-May
 
FYI: Panasonic's flagship 850 series plasma's will be capable of HD video thru their SD card slots

There are a few TVs with USB ports, but most of them are for service purposes.  Such as upgrading firmware etc.  If you do find a TV with a USB port make sure it can be used to connect external hard drives and USB memory sticks.  Also, you may want to confirm if there is a size limit for a connected USB memory device.

Re: USB PORT ON TV?

I was looking for a TV with a USB port as well. The ones that can play back video are very expensive. I just bought a DVD player with a USB port of $60 and it easily plays all my downloaded movies.

Cheap, easy solution!
