Great on hdmi; problems with composite output7/13/2012
I bought one of these, and it worked great on both the hdmi and composite outputs. So, I bought three more. All three worked great on hdmi, but were basically unusable on composite (with reds not registering well and colors flashing and morphing to other colors). That's fine for me because we only have one old composite only TV. So, the good one went there. The others are on hdmi capable TVs and work great. This unit recognizes the 1TB hard drive with digitized dvd content immediately--much better than my ASUS O!Play Air which takes a minute or so to access the drive. This is a great unit and great deal if you only need hdmi access. And remote works fine.
Hot, hot, hot...6/23/2012
As others have commented, this photo viewer/video player gets extremely hot; perhaps not hot enough to ignite paper, e.g., but I won't take that chance. I've placed mine on a trivet, (used for direct from the oven pans), to avoid problems. So far I've viewed various videos to check for format compatibility. Most play satisfactorily. One or two have sync problems. So far, I've not been able to link with WiFi, but I've not yet established whether this is a unit or my router problem. For the money, I'm OK with this item.
Buy the WD Media Player Instead5/20/2012
I bought this item because of the low price, and I got what I paid for. This media player is very limited in is video playback capabilities. Spend a little more and get Western Digital's media player instead. I have three of them and each performs flawlessly and works with just about any media format there is. Iomega has a long way to go.
total waste of money5/5/2012
Headline says it all" video keeps pausing, YouTube doesn't work, this thing going in the garage, I probably just use the cables that came with it or if I need a screws for another device. Very disappointed in Iomega. Iomega , take this off shelf because products like this gives your company a bad name and people stop buying other products from you as well. One more thing, thisdevice gets so hot after 30 min u can fry an egg on it.
Shared drive? Forget it4/30/2012
The device doesn't save usernames and passwords when you connect it to a network share. Navigation of network folders is slow and cumbersome. Remote control is of poor quality with repeated button-presses required for the device to detect the keypress. Maximum video resolution is 1080i - there was no 1080p option in the menu. I have several other media players (Patriot Box Office, WD HD TV Live, etc) and this is by far the worst unit I've ever seen. I just printed my RMA label - this puppy is going back.
Slow start, primitive interface, limited features.4/25/2012
I bought this box because of its low price and the claim that it would play .vob files, which are supposed to be DVD video object files, so I naively assumed that it would play files in ripped DVD folders. Well, it doesn't. It doesn't even see the folders with .VOB files. In addition, the box is very slow to start and navigate through menus. Very limited options playing web content - I didn't even see Netflix among them.
Before buying this I had a MassCool product that I used to library my movies. This product blows it out of the water. Super sweet, love it! I have a 2TB external harddrive connected via usb, works great. Also you can place all your content, movies, music, photos on one computer (must share it) and it will see all of it and play it, even a play list. Worth every penny!
I checked out Iomega’s 34229 and was only hpy with the way it boosts my home theater experience. Just had to be connected to the television..thereon, our home entertainment seemed upscaled. This hd player rocks!
TV is getting busier9/2/2010
PC is relaxing coz the TV link is keeping HDTV running busy during my leisure. This one is a high-caliber multimedia player, my former video players had format conversion problems on and off. Perfect companion for the shutterbugs who just cant have enough of images and moving images
Tv link n hdtv’z my personal theater-luxury8/20/2010
I have a Sony Bravia. In my time-off agenda, Movie theaters are now taking a back seat. Within the comforts of my home, I am able to enjoy all my favorite celluloid blockbusters and playlists. H.264 n AVCHD flow with equal ease, and nowadays the Sony is much busier than ever. I could reclaim viewing all my favorite pics and music in its entire charm without having to spend time on setting up, formatting and so on..
This one is a well-versed tv link8/13/2010
I have many storehouses of movies. All my 1 TB’s and 2 TB’s of music and videos are being explored in all its details with the TV link director 34429. Worked out of the box and I’m enjoying every unit of my collection with its hi-defn standards. On Mac 10.6 and at home pc, it is equally good. And whenever I watch slide shows and misc snaps, I play music on tv link coz I have Tons of music which are stored n tucked away in many of the usb flash drives I keep. Any media format plays fast on this, there has been no issues evn with divx videos...and its portable…thus I take it wherever. Hope it lasts longer than a year because my WD dint last beyond 3 months. Trying Iomega for the first time, I hope it lasts atleast a lill longer than WD did.
