My DVD player has a USB input. I once saw a friend use his Torch to connect to the USB of his DVD player, and it listed all files, etc. I had a Torch back then, and I tried to do so on mine and it didn't work.
Now, I have a 9900 and it still doesn't work. I'm wondering if it's possible at all. I'm not a newb, so I'm pretty sure I've tried everything. Also, the TV has an HDMI input - but I don't know if there's a mini-USB to HDMI cable these days?
My LG DVD/DVR can play off of a USB Flash memory Stick but it cannot read my Western Digital hard drive as it doesn't have the brains to detect the drive and activate it. Same experience with my 9900 the DVR treats it like a hard drive and not like dumb flash memory, it is not able to shake hands with the BlackBerry to get it to allow it access to the memory.
You need to check the model and specifications of your dvd before you can use the usb port for attaching it to your 9900. Also try attaching it to your PS3, because the usb port if attachable, will be visible.
