Question about Iomega ScreenPlay
Screen play no color and constant humming sound, no audio. "Device USB" says 0 even though hooked up to hard drive.
Since you put it back to NTSC, then that part should be fine, so then I would be guessing that the problem here is one of three things, as a normal computer screens will do the same if you either, one, Have a too high resolution for the device, so try putting the source's resolution to 640x480 if you can, if not 800x600 should be OK. Two, you have too high a color setting on the source, so try using 16-bit color instead of 32-bit. And third, too high of a refresh rate. A normal TV refresh rate, and also most devices that require a rapid refresh to trick the eye into seeing movement will work at 60hz. So that's the frequency the refresh rate should be at for maximum compatibility. Although a television has two kinds of refresh rates depending on models, but that's another story involving interlace scan and progressive scan just like the HD resolutions when they say 720p and 1080i and such, and for your problem will be too much info and does not really apply. But if you want me to explain the workings of interlaced and progressive refresh rates for your personnal info and curiosity, just write me a comment saying so and i will gladly explain all the bells and whistles to you.:) So hope this helps out a bit, if not, then i don't think i will be able to find the factory specs for your device, but if you send me all the details of the current setting on the device i will be able to spot any value out of the ordinary and tell you what to change it back to. So as i was saying, hope this helps, and hope to hear some news from you soon.:)

It is your computer that processes your video files and send to the TV screen hooked with your CPU. And the device you are describing is only holding huge video files for playing.
Just try to configure your display setting to enable dual-monitor and try to lower the resolution of the second monitor. If you know the maximum resolution of your TV, then set it up so that they will communicate and you can watch your videos.
I hope it helps. Regards!
