for some reason someone had a tv stowed on board (even had a lawn chair), and we have what we call a hercy cord, basically plug it in to a receptacle on the plane and it has a 110vac outlet at the end of it for electronics, so i took the herky cord, a powerstrip, the tv and my portable dvd player....

only bad thing is for those that have never ridden on a C-130, it is very loud, a constant drone of the 4 turboprops, gotta wear hearing protection, i had my headset on, with ear bud headphones undearneath, volume cranked and still barly heard it. (like how joe here is listening to his ipod)
my back was so sore from sitting in those troop seats for 4 days...with 27 other people(not counting crew) and 2 pallets.
