I JUST got my NT less than a week ago so this is ALL new to me. I came on the board just now ready to go with my sd card and was looking for tips on being able to watch movies. I had planned on downloading dvd caytalyst 4 and trying it out tonight.
Then I saw all these posts about the sideloading being blocked...should I not even bother now?
What a sham...sd card slot was a BIG reason for my choice of the NT over the Fire...maybe I will take it back and get the FIre....and get some money back too...to buy from an app store that actually has a decent amount of apps.

No sham. The sideloading whining is actually a misnomer for downloading .apk files from non-BN sources.
Your movies on SD cards work quite well. I'd strongly suggest investing the extra $2 in the Movie Gallery app, which makes it very easy to find all your movies on both the internal and SD memory as well.

Yep sideloading issue applies to apps only.
Still can sideload Movies,eBooks,Pictures,Music,etc..
Dvd catalyst 4 works great. And plays great and that is just on my Nook Color so the Tablet should be even better.

DVD Catalyst and the movie app are great. I have several movies and got a bigger card for them for Christmas.
