SOURCE: Iomega Screenplay Pro HD - No Menu

I had the same problem with the Screenplay Pro HD. My Iomega was working fine and one day after exchanging files with a friend I got the logo, then the loading message and then it went into a black screen while the blue light kept blinking.
Obviously the connection to the TV was fine because the logo appeared.
I solved the problem by downloading and reinstalling the firmware.
I downloaded the firmware from the iomega web site.
Notice that during the installation process you get the message that it will delete your data and then shortly after you have the option to delete or keep it. Hang in there. This part is a little nerv wrecking.

Hope this helps.
Rainer

SOURCE: Iomega Screenplay Pro HD Multimedia Drive works on PC but not on

If the blue light continues to flash after the screen goes black, then you need to reinstall the firmware. Look at http://screenplayprohd.wikia.com for information about getting the firmware and installing it.

If the blue light goes solid after the screen goes black then you probably just need to switch the NTSC/PAL selection. Press that button on the front panel several times, waiting a few seconds inbetween in press. If it continues to be invisible, plug the drive into another TV using the composite cables instead of HDMI to confirm if the menu comes up at all. If it does, reinstall the firmware.

Each ScreenPlay has a specific set of codec it can play, so there is nothing that can be done unless Iomega updates the device to play it.

Iomega screenplay dx


It may depend on what type of file system you chose when formatting it. For file-type support beyong 1.5 Gb, such as high-resolution videos, aka. HD movies, Iomega should be able to recognize NTFS file system. Perhaps you chose FAT, or FAT32? In that case Iomega may not recognize it.

Hi, my Iomega ScreenPlay play MKV files but there is no sound when i connect to HDMI cable.


This mediaplayer can't read DTS sound, only AC3.What I do is that I use AudioConverter to change the .mkv files to AC3 sound before playind them. This should solve your problem.

Hi Mary,
Please check the format of the video that you are trying to play.
this Iomega ScreenPlay Plus HD Media Player is certified to play popular DivX video, and supports many of today's popular CODECs and file types, including H.264, WMV and MKV, as well as plenty of others. (For a comprehensive list of supported video, audio and photo files. Most probably the video that you are trying to play is .3GP or .FLV.

For this you need to convert the video files to supporting format like DivX®, DivX Plus™ HD (MKV), XviD, AVI(Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), ISO, VOB, MP4, MOV, MKV,H.264, WMV, RMVB and MPEG.

Thanks,
Satheesh

Bad container error


"can't play media (bad container)" for MKV format :
The video bitrate (file compression) is to high and needs to be re encoded at lower bitrate (kbps).
Try these settings below for 1080p with the ScreenPlay Director HD. If you are using a different ScreenPlay, check your user's manual to make sure you are using the correct output container because not all ScreenPlay units play MKVs.

Output Container - MKV
Output Video Codec - H.264/AVC Width:Height - 1920:1080 Frame/Sec - 23.976(24) Bitrate kbps - 1248 Hi Quality
Output Audio Codec - AAC LC Freq 44100 2 Channels 128kbps Audio

After transfering all my avi files to my iomega screenplay hd multimedia drive. the avi video files play without sound


Could be that your Iomega player is lacking the same type of Codec that was used to encode the Audio in the AVI Files.
