The side-facing ports are located just underneath the on-set controls. Here you'll find an HDMI port, composite video input, and a set of analog audio inputs.

The back of the TV provides users with two additional HDMI ports, a pair of component video inputs, an additional composite video input, three sets of analog audio inputs, a VGA port with accompanying 3.5mm audio jack, and an S-Video port. Underneath this cluster of ports, facing down, is the cable in.

 

Output Ports*(2.0)*


The TV only has two output ports, which are located on the back of the TV: one set of analog audio outputs, and a digital audio out port. This is a standard number.

 

Other Connections*(0.0)*


 

The 40XV645U has no other ocnnections, such as wireless or Bluetooth. 

 

 

Media*(1.0)*


 

The 40XV645U has a USB port on its side. You can use this to view photos on the TV. 

 

 

Placement*(6.5)*


The ports are very well placed on the Toshiba Regza 40XV645U. There aren't that many located on the side, but the ones located on the back are very easy to access, with the possible exception of the cable input. The TV doesn't swivel, making the good port location almost necessary.
