Re: Mix Max movie becomes pixellated.
If other video cards do not have the same issue then it's probably because the HSM card was damaged by inserting it or removing it when the player was turned on. Or you may simply need to reformat the memory of the player or it could be that flashing the firmware of the player could correct the issue.
To format the player follow the instructions listed here; http://digiblue.com/customer-service/faqs/disney/mixmax/06.html
If that doesn't work try the firmware listed here; http://digiblue.com/customer-service/faqs/disney/mixmax/17.html

Try connecting the player to your computer and press the reset button. You'll need a paper clip or thumb tack to reset it. Then remove the clip and try turning it on. Also as a general rule it's always best to insert and remove the clips when the player is turned off.
The Mix Stick will show up as a removable disk in your 'My Computer' icon or in 'Computer' if you have Vista. You can then open that Removable Disk and drag and drop songs to it or you can use the 'Sync' function in Windows Media Player.
You need Prism Video Converter and Windows Media Encoder 9 series. You can google both and download for free. You use Prism Video Converter to convert AVI or whatever file to WMV and then use Windows Media Encoder 9 Series to convert the WMV file to a WMV9 file. I know its stupid but if you follow my directions it will work and it cheaper then buying the individual cartridges. Once you have these installed do the following.
Click and open up Prism Video Convertor.
Click to "ADD FILES" on top toolbar. Find and choose the movie you want to convert and double click on the movie and it will add it to the list. Add all the movies that you want to convert. Each one takes about an hour.
At the bottom choose a different output folder. Then scroll through the OUTPUT FORMAT tab at the bottom and choose. .WMV
Click on ENCODER OPTIONS and change everything to the following: Video Compressor------ Windows Media Video 9 Video bit rate ------------- 4096 Sound Compressor ----- Windows Media Audio 9.2 Sound Format ------------ 128 kbps,48 kHz Stereo CBR
Press ok and then click on VIDEO OUTPUT OPTIONS and change everything to the following Make sure that there is a check next to RESIZE VIDEO "Shrink or enlarge video to selected size." Width---- 220 Height --- 176
Make sure that there is a check next to CHANGE FRAMERATE 30.00
Click on OK and then CONVERT when the movie is finished you can move on to the next step
Then choose your source file ( the movie you just converted with Prism)
Then Choose a new output file like make a new folder and name it MIX MAX MOVIES and click ok
On the next screen just press ok. Don't worry about the setting at this point because we will change them later.
Name the movie. and click ok and FINISH
Once the converter starts press the STOP button on the top toolbar., its RED, a window will pop up, click CLOSE to close the window. Then at the top of the converter click on the PROPERTIES tab. A window will pop open. Click on the COMPRESSION tab in the middle of several tabs. Click EDIT on the right hand side of the COMPRESSION window.
Now you should see 2 tabs. A GENERAL tab and a 259kbps tab
On the GENERAL TAB change everything to the following:
Make sure Video and Audio are both checked Audio CBR Windows Media Audio 9.2 Video CBR Windows Media Video 9
Click the 259kbps tab and change to the following. ( If you see something I don't mention here THEN DON'T CHANGE IT )
Audio Format 128 kbps, 48 (NOT 44) kHz Stereo CBR Video Size 220X176 Frame Rate 30 Key Frame Interval 2 sec Video Bit Rate 384K (this is a little tricky. MAKE SURE IT SAYS 384K) Buffer Size 5 sec Video Smoothness 0 Decoder Complexity Simple
for a total of 521.02
CLICK APPLY and wait a few seconds for it to apply and then START ENCODING on top toolbar. When this movie is finished it will play on your MIX MAX, if it still says that the FILE IS NOT SUPPORTED then you have to go into the setting on the max and change the mass storage setting. There are 2 choices can't remember off hand what they are but choose the opposite one obviously and try again. Also you actually have to go to the movies or video tab on the max player not NOW PLAYING cuz that button is pointless.
any problems email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
I have converted many movies that have worked on both our players so if you follow these directions correctly there shouldn't be a problem.
