With the ScreenPlay MX HD, Iomega is giving us its version of the minimalist media centre: no networking, no Internet applications, just playback of multimedia files via the USB port or internal 1 or 2 TB hard drive. Compact and well finished, this centre contains an internal 1 TB, 1.5 TB or 2 TB hard drive - you choose on purchase. It runs silently and is piloted with a rather banal remote. You don't get the "Go To" feature, which takes you straight to a precise place in the film, on this remote, just the standard fast forward and back buttons. The navigation interface isn't exactly innovative, in fact you get the same as you get with the competition. You view the files in list format or by thumbnail. Thumbnail photos are displayed in mosaic form or as a wall of film posters for videos. You have to add the posters manually however as they aren't automatically retrieved from the Internet. While it plays Full-HD videos without flinching in spite of their weight, we were disappointed by the handling of Dolby Digital and DTS. Firstly, if you use your TV speakers you won't be able to hear DTS tracks at all as the ScreenPlay MX HD doesn't decode them. Next, although bitstream - raw audio flow to an external amp - is supported, DTS HD MA and Dolby TrueHD formats aren't.

The speed at which HD media players have evolved over the last one year has been breath-taking, to say the least. From the initial versions not capable of playing all video and audio formats to the next gen devices which were able to handle all formats without any issues. The third gen sees the integration of network access capabilities to these devices- for streaming multimedia and accessing the ...
