Pretty hard to find these days on budget players.

It's got a Coaxial Digital out if your decoder has input

Not much info I could find. Everywhere just says Smart Functions. Did find this:


Additional Features

It’s almost surprising that the BP325 even has any additional functions other than its 3D Blu-ray playback, but it also includes limited access to smart TV via an ethernet port at the rear. Don’t be misled, this is not the LG Cloud TV included with the pricier LPB740 or the BP645, but it does offer YouTube access and a few weather apps. Although limited, the uncomplicated access is a good taster of what a full-blooded smart TV system may be like.

Basically none... Weather Channel, Picasa and YouTube.

This player was the subject of a lengthy debate on HUKD about three years ago (did it have smart features or not) when sold by Shop Direct's Woolworths portal. The debate and expression of mis-description was in full flow by page 6 of that deal's thread:: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lg-bp325-3d-smart-3d-bu-ray-player-39-00-woolworths-1325482?page=6#comments

Seems a small rom, so I'm thinking possibly it is is a patch to remove cinavia maybe without it actually telling you that.

All Blu-rays have Cinavia, I bought this for my sister as a Xmas present and Cinavia only triggers when a file is played from DISC, if you take the same file and play it from an external HDD Cinavia does not trigger.

How did you play the movies, did you play from a back up or as someone else mentioned from external source.

Cinavia is a requirement for certification in all bluray players since about 2012. Older blurays players maybe cinavia free or require a FW update to implement it. PS3 used to be fine till a mandatory FW introduced it.

Can someone give me some info please as I'm quite confused with technology so not sure what to buy and you all seem to know what you're talking about :)

I need a new dvd player (or Blu-ray it doesn't matter which as I only have dvds) but I also want be able to be able to plug my external HD in to watch movies on the TV at the moment I just watch them on my laptop. I was going to buy a Samsung BD-H6500 3D Blu-ray Disc Player as I liked the fact it had youtube and all the catch up TV channels and I THINK I can also plug my external HD in and watch movies but I'm not really sure I'm also not sure about cinavia will that stop some of the movies from playing?
My other option was to buy just a regular dvd or Blu-ray player and then a separate media player to plug my external HD in to watch movies on tv?

I'm very confused by all this so if someone could give me some info, maybe what's best to buy or point me in the right direction I would be very grateful, thank you!

queenie71, there's a post above that says cinavia doesn't impact external hdd files. I didn't know that but it does match my experience. Don't worry about that point. Many people use blu ray players largely to watch HD files, less so to watch disks themselves these days! Go for it, you'll find it revolutionises your viewing habits. The norm these days is for tvs to have USB connections for that reason. Catch up options on players is also v useful.

If you need a new disc player cos your existing one is busted, then this BR player should suit your external USB drive playback requirements assuming the player's USB port can supply sufficient power to your external drive. Worst case scenario: you may need to also buy a powered USB hub, in which case, consider a USB3 powered hub as they tend to be more powerful.
If your current DVD player is fine but doesn't have the facility to playback files from the external drive and you don't intend to move to BR disc purchases in near future, maybe consider a more flexible dedicated smart media player (assuming your TV has a spare HDMI port) . A fully-featured s805 android TV box capable of all sorts of amazing wizardry (inc playing files from external drives, and converting "dumb" TVs to smart TVs, YouTube, TV catchup, open web browser, etc) can be had from reputable suppliers from under £40 ex-UK, example: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00OPX3XQ6 . If you can wait a few days until nearer 20 May 2015... (suggestion removed as hardware is not as originally advertised).
If you are comfortable with far east suppliers you could consider £21 delivered for the s805-in-a-stick version, that typically takes 3 weeks to hit UK via PostNL standard delivery that rarely attracts duties http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box/pp_124593.html .

Thank you antonio1 and Flipd for the info and links it's very much appreciated as I find all of this so confusing.
My 15 year old dvd player has finally broken so it's time to update it and move with the times, I was thinking of the Samsung BD-H6500 which is around £100 but it looks like this LG BP325 Blu-ray player will also be suitable for my needs although I will probably change my mind once I have checked out all the links Flipd kindly provided, there's so much choice now I can't keep up! :3
