I have a sumvision/cyclone 1TB media player and up
I had a similar problem with a different piece of kit, the answer is go to the options menu of your TV, there you will find the composite settings tweak those while the cyclone is plugged in and your picture will re appear.
It may be too late for you but i had just bought one of these units 1tb version, the problem i found was even though it reads .vob file ( kinda suggests DVD compatibility ) it really only means that, navigation only allows going to a DVD folder and then on to the individual .vob files.
If you know what I am talking about then you will realise it means no DVD title screen navigation! I can tell you I felt ripped off.
Another issue is that many files that played flawlessly on my old ioni media player either played with no picture but sound or sound and no picture, i have read somewhere that this machine is just a large hard drive with a media player attached and not the reverse.
Lastly I wouldn’t advise anyone to buy one because you may think well maybe there will be a firmware update to fix the problems, I downloaded the firmware zip from the maplins site and checked the properties, its was created two years ago, they have done nothing since.
Going to the sumvision website gives you no way of complaining just a link at the bottom of the page to some Chinese website.
Did I mention that although the unit ticks all the boxes for looks but the remote is very cheap and nasty as the GUI in the box.
I got a refund!
I am looking at this to replace it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM4n9sLI-b8
Sumvision cyclone mkv 2 enclosure will not conect
From this and several other posts you made on this device (I assume you are the same Anonymous poster), it appears you do not have a formatted hard drive installed in the unit, or you didn't know the computer is treating it as an external drive (even if it calls it an "unknown" USB device. Your computer is looking for the file system in the enclosure. The directions for finding the unit from a Windows computer (written for the mkv, not the mkv 2, but they would probably work the same) are given in the review article linked below. Note: if you don't find any "Unallocated" disk, look in "My Computer" for a drive that isn't your internal hard drive or other usual device. Probably all you have to do is save your media files to this drive and they will be available to play on your A/V system.
