Summary: I purchased this for the sole reason that on all the sites I looked, even the Iomega site, said this device could play .MKV video files. Well when I hooked everything up and set it up on my network to stream videos from my computer to my TV the .MKV files would not show. I went to Iomega site and found out that they say it supports some .MKV but not all. To me this seems like a blatant case of false advertisement from the company.
Iomega 35045 ScreenPlay TV Link DX HD Media Player
7 January 2012
Summary: I received the unit today and have spent 2-3 hours trying to connect to the network. I am not pleased with the instructions and support I am getting in regards to setting up the network. The online manual is vague. Other than that, I don't know what the unit can do.
Summary: I purchased this right after its release. I was tired of connecting my HDMI and optical cables from my computer to my TV, and this looked like it would do the job. The power supply gave out the first week. After no help form tech support, I put it on the shelf for awhile. The first firmware version would not play ISO files, which is the way half of my moves are stored. I finally found a compatable power supply and booted it back up a few weeks ago.
Summary: Regret to purchase this gadget without further research. This is a bad product which does not have enough memory to take care of the vast amount from tv serials. It is good only for tv program scripts and almost worthless to it. It seemed only trying to push sales for netflx and wonder whether it is funded by this. Will throw away this piece of garbage costing me $120.00.
Summary: This is my 3rd media player I owned, the others are cinematube and asus oplay. By far this is the worst. This unit just can't keep up with most of the video and only support a subset of my video collections. The only thing that works right is the netflix media player. It is sad when my previous player out performance this more expensive player.
Summary: I heard about this from a WD media player review and bought this because it is cheaper. It played 1 out of 10 movies I tried (mp4 and avi). I was too busy to return, so I lost. The WD has played over 100 movies without one failure. So it would take at least 100 of these to equal one WD.
Summary: On compatible hard drives, this product is very nice. It will allow you to play the contents of the HD on your TV. It comes with a remote control, which makes it very convenient. However, it is NOT compatible with any external drive that does not have its own power source (I learned this from their customer support). It would have been nice if they had stated this in their product description. I had to return as it was not compatible with several of my drives.
Summary: Bought one, didnt work so I returned it for a replacement. Second one didnt work either so had to return that one as well. Kept saying there was no drive, even though I tried 3 thumb drives and 2 external hard drives.
