Transfer digital video, digital photo and digital music or audio files to the TV Media Player (MD-272 only). 2. Connect the TV Media Player to a TV. 3. Connect the power to the TV Media Player. 4. Connect the USB hard disk containing stored digital media to the TV Media Player and power on the hard disk. 5.

You can connect the MD-272 like any other USB storage. You don’t need to put the files in any order, the Portable TV Media Player will sort them out in the right categories for Music, Videos and Photos. 5.2.2 Connecting the TV Media Player Below is a summary of the audio and video connection options. The pages that follow have illustrations of the various connection types. Video Connections To connect video to your TV, there are several options. If your TV or home entertainment system is equipped with a HDMI port, use a HDMI cable for the video and audio connection. Alternatively, the media player video output can be supplied through the composite video connection (A/V port). The MD-272 also features a component connection for higher image quality on TV’s that haven’t got a HDMI connection.

Plug the opposite end to the matching HDMI connector on your television or audio video system. HDMI provides the best video quality resolution up to 1080p, plus audio support. • Component Video (MD-272 only) Plug the component cable into the corresponding ports on the back panel of the TV Media Player. Plug the opposite ends to the corresponding ports on your television or audio video system. Component provides the best video quality resolution up to 1080p, but without audio.

Connect the other end to the designated port on the back of the TV Media Player. 5.2.4 Connect USB to the TV Media Player The TV Media Player automatically searches the disk for supported media content. If there is a large volume of digital media, it might take several minutes to completely scan the disk, however the files that have already been scanned can be played.

Often USB hard disks have LED indicators that let you know if it is powered on and if it is connected. Check the user guide of the USB hard disk for more information. 5.2.5 Connect Ethernet to the TV Media Player The TV Media Player includes an Ethernet port to connect the TV Media Player to a local network in order to use digital media stored on servers connected to the network. Connect a Cat5 or higher certified cable to the designated port on the TV Media Player. Connect the other end of the cable to a hub, switch, modem or router.
