Never mind sorted
I was going to say it is the new connection that peeps found up at Area 51.
Based on the color, USB 2, type B. If it was blue, I would say USB 3 type B.
generic USB B.... common referred to as a Printer USB port.... Typically if you go into any store and ask for a USB printer cable, you'll get B type usb on one end and the standard USB A connector (that you find on literally everything usually) on the other end in order to connect a printer to the computer.
There are still a few things that use the B type to connect to the machine, plenty of external USB drives prior to USB 3.x used this kind of a port.
Yeah its an old external bluray player that the bloke wants to connect to his TV, I cant find a type b to HDMi locally though
because you don't convert that to HDMI.... if that is the only port coming out of the device... it's certain that it was intended to connect to a computer in order to grant it bluray capabilities.
A proper bluray will have HDMI out, and older models will have hdmi and component out.
Yeah, if it only has a USB and perhaps power supply ports, then it is an external BluRay drive for a computer. Not an external player.
Figured as much but wasnt sure bloke has no computer just a TV and wants to watch films, I gave him a spare player I had laying aroound he is more than happy
