I am looking into a 34xbr960 and am wondering what the firewire port can be used for? I have an iMac G5 and a couple of firewire external HDs. Now what??

It is for sony "i.LINK" devices.

I was woundering if it might be possible to link the TV to a computer, and stream some .TS (MPEG-2 Transport Streams).
If you look closely, you can see that it says "TS"...

It's mostly intended for connecting to a DVHS recorder... there is Mac software that imitates a DVHS vcr...
