Xbmc video library not updating
The manual provided gives you the basics on how to use the media player, but to honest it is so easy to use you probably wont even need to look at it.
I have created a quick little video showing the way the menu works on the Sumvision Cyclone Primus media player, see below. Compatability: This drive works fine on laptops and desktops with the following operating systems: * Windows 98SE / 2000 / Me / XP Home / XP Pro / Media Centre / Vista / 7. UPDATE: If you found this article interesting or useful, why not follow us for updates though the following: Twitter, Facebook, Google , Tumblr or email.
Just a quick review and first impressions of the Sumvision Cyclone Primus HDMI MKV media player / HDD enclosure.
This is the latest version of a media player hard drive enclosure from Sumvision. It will take any SATA hard drive upto approx 2TB, and will play literally all media formats out at the moment.
You can also just use this as a external USB hard drive on your pc with the supplied usb cable, though a slight problem in that to power the unit up you need to turn it on and without a physical switch on the unit you have to use the remote to power the unit on which then spins up the hard drive and then the computer recognises it.
I also tried using the unit with the supplied composite cable on a standard tv, and although the unit had been selected for 1080p when had been using it on the hdmi.
You then attach the bottom of the enclosure by slotting back in and inserting for screws under the feet.
The bottom of the unit can be a bit fiddly to attach.
All of the formats I tried had no problems, though sometimes when starting or after fast forward you get a very slight jitter in sound and picture, but this is just for around 1 second.
The media player didn’t need the resolution to be changed to SD for the composite.
So this is great for using the media player on all different tv’s.
I also had a slight problem with a MP4 720p that I had created myself as very slight corruption at the start, but this I think is the way I encoded this self created video clip.
I even tried the memory card out of my Panasonic DMC-FZ38 which takes video in the AVCHD format at 720p 50fps and these player perfect other than did take a few seconds to start playing these file, which to be honest didn’t think It would play these files, but it did great.Once you select your device from this menu you either see the partitions you have on your hard, once you select your partition you then have a standard folder list.
