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

I think this machine do not support MKV video, so I think you can convert it to MP4 with Leawo Video Converter, and then try it again.

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.

Why is it that I canot get sound on all the vidios that I play back on my TV from my Screen Play I can only get sound on a few ?


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

My Iomega Screen Play Plus wont play any of my High Quality AVI files. I know this is down to the codec. Can I install a 3rd party player or how do I fix this?


It appears that the firmware update (click here) only fixes minor bugs some of which include DivX issues but does not seem to include more codecs. Here are a list of supported codecs (click here). The only other option seems to be the Transcode Server option (click here); but am not sure if this works for your exact model. So for all intents and purposes unless Iomega sends out a firmware update, with an extend codec pack, you would have to try the Transcode Server option or unfortunately convert your files to a supported format (no joy). Hope this was helpful.

My iomega screen play does not play .MKV files what can I do.


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.

I cannot play .mkv and mp4 files on my Iomega screen play pro HD even after updating firmware to the latest suggested on Iomega site . please help me to sort out this issue . thanks in advance


The lomega can't supported the .mkv and mp4 format. I think you should learn from me, I bought a cheap Aneesoft video converter, and I will use it to solve once meeting the audio format or video format issue. this software can convert among all kinds of video format. you can have a try.

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

CYCLONE MEDIA PLAYER firmware up-date that allows .MKV


The player does not support .MKV files if you update the player it will still not play .MKV files the update is just to fix problems with the player.
