Re: SD Card Playback
I've been looking for a solution to replace the player. I thought about loading up an old phone with movies and using the HDMI port. But the HDMI connector only worked intermittently.
The main problem is not being able to see the screen in front means you can't just use a regular media player (like an Amazon Fire or Roku) instead, you would have to sit in back and navigate to the movies every time.And the format support is very hit and miss. Sometimes a file will work, but another file with the same container won't. I suspect it is codec support.
So I am still looking for an SD or USB media player that will (a) auto-play and (b) include next/previous track buttons on the front.
