Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have some movies downloaded to an external hard drive. When I try playing them through my Samsung HT-D4500 or HT-E4500, I get an error message: Cinavia Message Code 3, and the sound is muted. This keeps happening to interrupt the movie. Any suggestions on how to bypass this error? Thank you.

The cinavia is not an error. This means that Samsung suscpects that you dont have the proper licences to play that file.
Cinavia is a copy protection that is used in some Blueray movies, and this copy protection is not removed when the file is ripped from the BD disk.
If you play the file on a computer or some other media player that dont have cinavia protection enabled, then the file will play without problems.
I have a Samsung HT-D6750W, and the same problem apeared after a firmware update, think it happended between fw version 1012 and 1013.
There is no way to downgrade the firmware in these players, but some of them does support custom built firmware. After you get that custom firmware installed, the software will be more open. Then it will be possible to patch the needed files to bypass the cinavia.
But this is a complicated process which require a bit knowledge to linux. And doing stuff like that will involve a certain risk of bricking the device if you do it wrong, and it will certainly break any warranty.
But if you are still feeling comfortable with trying this, then go to the SamyGO and try to figure out if your model is supported or not. Here are a few links to help you get started. But before joining the forum and start asking questions, do read all the info in the wiki's and search for your questions in earlier posts first.

When you receive Cinavia Message Code 3, then it means that the audio track of your Blu-ray or DVD content contains Cinavia code. Without removing the Cinavia Message Code 3, you are not allowed to play or copy the digital content as you like.
To get rid of the Cinavia Message Code 3 on your player, you can try Leawo Blu-ray Cinavia Removal which is a program that can be able to remove the Cinavia protection with ease.

SOURCE: System Error

FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1

SOURCE: screen says cant record copy protected movie

Is this a new problem or has it always been like this? The unit will throw that error message if there's a copy protection flag on the broadcast source.

To make matters worse, there are three flags a broadcaster can set. Copy Always, Copy Once, and Copy Never.

Copy Always and Copy Never are pretty self-explanatory but the Copy Once flag with this unit only works with certain media, namely DVD-RAM and DVD-RW in VR mode with CPRM (Content Protection for Recordable Media.

Copy Always flag should work with all media. I don't know of any easy way to figure out which broadcasts have which flag but try changing your media and recording mode first.

P.S. You may also want to reset to factory default settings by pressing FF and RW together on the player. Also make sure you're running the latest firmware.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: disc error "playback feature may not be available on this disc"

Hello arnita2211,

This error message is due to an improper format, that your dvd player can't handle. To correct this you need to use a program such as nero and in nero is a program called nero vision, that will recode the movie file into a dvd playable format.

You can download a trial of nero here
http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads-nero9-trial.php
You will have to purchase a license when the trial ends. Sorry we cannot give you a serial key for this as it is Illegal.

Thank you for trying Fixya!

IO error when movie starts playing and stops


IO error means Input/Out error. It looks like your mediaplayer is not liking your external hard drive. Make sure the video is supported by the mediaplayer, otherwise you will need to convert it to a video file that the player supports.
