Profile contents My 4gb Lyra goes straight to "Please profile the contents" regardless of where I go on screen or what I might do. It is about 4 months old and I would like to keep from buying a new one.

Re: profile contents

Try contacting RCA as your unit should still be under warranty. Try removing and replacing the battery. Hope it helps if not please post again :)

What format of video can I play on my RCA Lyra RD2780

Good day,

I read on a troubleshoot website that the player supports the following format:

"The Lyra AV Jukebox can play MPEG4-SP video content encoded with the DivX 4/5 and xVID codecs."

Hope this helps!

Have a nice day!

How do I add music files to my Thomson Lyra jukebox PDP2860

The best way would be to use the software that comes with the Lyra but if you dont have/use it then you simply drag and drop the files as you do with the films.
The difference being that you must manually 'Profile Contents' which is in the 'Audio' menu, if you use the drag and drop method whereas the software does this automatically.
Your files will magically appear when you have done this.

This is most likely caused by the Lyra being nearly full.

First try deleting content to free up 15MB of disk space. Then profile the device contents.

If that's not successful, connect the USB cable to the device while pressing the enter button (Play/Pause). Continue to hold the button in until your PC recognizes the device. This will connect the player as a mass storage device with a drive letter in Windows Explorer.
In Windows Explorer, navigate to the drive letter assigned to the Lyra and locate the Lyra_Sys folder. Within that folder you should find the local.lrd file. This contains the information from profiling.
Delete the local.lrd file, then safely disconnect the player from the PC.

The embedded profiler should then work correctly.

Titles dissapearing in Mysel...

Your problem is MusicMatch. In the RCA manual, which is found on the CD or online (nothing is printed), it refers you to the MusicMatch software to learn how to create M3U playlists. Someone at RCA didn't talk to MusicMatch before making this claim. The MusicMatch software makes a mess of the files and never saves a playlist properly. You can devise a process using WinAmp which would probably work with Musicmatch, but I prefer WinAmp. Here's the process: Rip your CDs, download from the internet, and transfer the files to the RD2850 while the Lyra is connected as a hard drive. The files are stored in the /MUSIC directory. I suggest you organize your albums like this /MUSIC// If the artists you listen to have multiple albums, a structured approach is useful. The Lyra can sort the files by Artist and Album automatically if the tags are available, meaning a structured directory approach is unnecessary, but it makes it easier if you want to take the files off the Lyra in the future. Once the files are on the Lyra, use WinAmp to open those file FROM THE LYRA. This is important since the playlist will specify the relative path of the MP3 files and the Lyra expects the playlists in a directory other than where your music files are. With WinAmp open, press L to open the file selection dialog and navigate to the directory with the album, or music. Select the songs, press Open. Open the Playlist Editor (ALT+E) Arrange the songs Save the songs with the List Opts button found at the bottom right of the screen. Chose Save List. A dialog will open asking you where to save the list. Save the list in the /lyra_playlists directory from the root of the drive. Now, the Lyra needs to be updated. This is called "Profiling". The included software has a utility to do this from Windows, or you can do this from the Lyra itself. The manual states if you have over 2500 files, it is best to do this from Windows. But, after changing anything on the Lyra, you must "Profile" the device. You will now see your playlist in the Playlist menu item on the main screen.
