Theatre mode allows you to connect a second screen to your personal computer and play videos directly from your hard drive. This is especially useful if your personal computer contains video files that cannot be played on your DVD player. For example, you may have home movies on your personal computer and no way to watch them on your TV. Theatre mode is an effective way to send videos to your TV with minimal hassle.
