Mp5 Player with Tv Out – Portable movies on your tv!

August 5th, 2010 by Gareth Leave a reply »

This is the best quality 4.3 Inch Touch Screen MP5 player we have seen from China so far. First of all it looks great, it has an outer aluminium casing which weighs in heavier than its smaller peers which makes it feel like a good sturdy device when held in the hand.

It has no buttons on the front leaving the whole 4.3 inches free to be consumed by the touchscreen to display all your videos/images with a whopping QVGA resolution of 480 x 272 pixels.

Touchscreen response is decent when using a finger, better with the stylus. Id reccomend you calibrate your screen first, on our example this was found in the settings menu under ‘rectification’ (according to the chinese this is another word for calibration?!). Click on the crosses until it closes and your away.

Customise Your Desktop Themes

One of the great features of this particular player is the ability to switch the desktop theme, this has become quite familiar now on many rockchip players.  Here are some examples of the colourful desktops available:

It is possible to upgrade the firmware on these devices to edit the strings of text and the images, though I havent figured out how to do so on the latest RK2706B firmware, if anyone figures it out drop us a comment!

Now if any of you have read any of my earlier posts you will know one of the main advantages of an MP5 player such as this one is the easy to use drag and drop functionality. With video files especially on your everyday MP4 Player you will first have to preconvert/downsize your AVI/MPG video files to fit on the player. The advantage of most MP5 Players is that you can literally drag your downloaded/burnt video files straight onto the extra drive that will appear on your pc when you connect it. And thats it job done! Video playback is smooth with quality sound output, even the built in speaker is pretty decent for its size

TV Out

Yes it can even output video to your lovely widescreen TV, and you dont need to go out and purchase the cable to do so as the cable is included! (Now you wont catch apple doing that!). Youll get a cable with different connectors at each end. One end for your tv will have 3 connectors (yellow for video, red and white for audio). Then there will be a headphone connector and tv out connector to fit into the respective outputs on your MP5 Player. Simply play your video, press the little tv icon on the screen of your player (make sure your tv is switced to the correct input), now you should see your film on your tv in its widescreen glory!

    You forgot to mention that this items needs firmware, and has difficulties connecting with your PC. Difficult to add your files if your can’t get to the drives to transfer them.

  2. Gareth says:

    It should only need firmware for older Op Systems such as Windows 98 which you should find on the cd you get with the player. The driver should auto install when you connect the player to the pc. If it doesnt then you either have a faulty player or a faulty usb cable

    works fine off XP just drag files to the pop up removeable drive. I installed the PMP transcoding software on to my pc to convert cd files to mp3 then dragged them to the removable drive. Haven’t figure out how to sort into genre. I guess you use explorer and move to another dir.

    i bought one of these mp5 players, it also works fine on windows 7, great little gadget but i am having trouble recording tv, easy to drag and drop files to, it could do with having a bigger memory or even a memory card free as mine is only 4gb,

  5. Gareth says:

    Hi Tony, it is a great gadget for the price when you think of the cost of other branded mp4 players. You should be able to output your videos to the tv with the tv out functionality though its not intended for recording tv..

  6. Rui says:

    @ Carlos: Had the same problem. Just try with a different cable…Worked for me.

    The rest i’m analysing

    Hi Keith, good to hear you like the product!

    If you email us your order ID we can get a free replacement cable sent out to you. Im guessing your referring to the TV Out cable? Has the cable been connected properly?

    Hi Gareth
    When I say I have bought one it is the same as this but not from you, sorry for the confusion
    Regards
    Keith
