You sure can! USB port is on the back so tricky to get to, but not impossible.

You can use the TVs PC connection and play them via Computer. I am not sure if the USB will play direct through USB connection. I know it didn't on other models. I use a DiVX player for MP4 films etc. I hope this helps

Not sure about through the USB connector, but if you can through a HDMI connector from computer to TV, I download films from Itunes onto my laptop, connect my laptop via HDMI and am able to watch films on my TV.

I bought the same tv and had lots of problems with it and nothing that could be resolved. Took it back and had an exchange.

Take it back. Mine had similar problem and Grundig told me the lcds had gone in that area. Could try fixing if return isn't an option.

How do you get the 7 Day EPG working?
There is nothing in the manual about the 7 day EPG and none of the buttons seem to bring it up, although it is advertised with 7 day EPG and is also on the box

Answer(s)
Someone else has answered yes to this question ,but.... I just called the technical dept at Argos to be told NO.. the freeview digital tuner on this tv, is NOT an HD freewiew tuner ...which means it will not pickup freeview HD channels.. (you will need a freeview box that is HD eg seperate HD freeview box/skyHD box.)
I know how annoying it is to have conflicting information....
So maybe we all need check it out again ???

Where have you been over the past two decades?
Old style Grundig TV's from past experience last for so long you end up throwing them away fully working as they become to old fashioned looking life expetency 20 yr+ .

Once Germany's most important manufacturer, today under Turkish management, Grundig only builds TVs with LCD technology. The devices don't always use the most up-to-date components, but offer good sound, good build-quality, and decent operation.

How long do LCD's last? who knows but I bought Grundig form past reliability.
Excellent TV so easy to set up, sound settings need altering from default setting but excellent and a lovely picture with excellent sound.

If past engineering is as good as current engineering I expect this TV to last for many years to come.

Grundig are a German manufacturer and had a good reputation in the past. However this TV is not made by Grundig it simply has a Grundig badge.

HI
I think you need to check this because I called argos and I was told that.
unless it says HD freeview digital tuner...then it is not actually an HD digital tuner???
So.It will not pickup HD freeview channels.. (only three at the moment anyway).
You will need a seperate box HD freeview box.. or eg sky HD (something that will allow you to receive HD programmes).

A review in part from del from UK on 27th October 2010 for the Grundig GU37HD1080p 37 Inch Full HD 1080p LCD TV said: "if you're a SKY user the code for the sky remote is 999, even sky themselves don't know this!" (see Argos web link http://reviews.argos.co.uk/1493-en_gb/5294639/reviews.htm).

I haven't verified this personally but give it a go!

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

This TV does not has Freeview HD tuner and hence as you said, it need a HD box to access the Freeview channels in HD.
