    Hi,
    Just got a FVP 5000T. I loaded some jpeg photos onto a USB stick (formatted FAT32). The Humax can see the files but when I press play nothing happens except I get a yellow circle with a diagonal line in the top right hand corner of the TV screen.
    Anybody help please.

    Try reducing the file size significantly.

    You have quickly learned that the Humax claim that the Freesat and Freeview boxes have a built-in media player is a complete exaggeration. It does not get better.

    Repassac: The file sizes of the individual pics are between 1 and 2mb each.

    Pollensa1946: The Samsung PVR that I have just binned wouldn't show them either.

    Thank you both for your replies

    RAM on a PVR is usually quite limited, I would try reducing it to below 100K as a test.

    It's not normally the file size that's the issue. It's the nos of pixels.

    For portrait images Rescale the largest side to 1080 pixels which is the largest your TV can show (unless you have a 4K TV) without having to scale down the image.

    For landscape images and best possible quality. Crop to 16:9 and change pixels to 1920 x 1080.

    Will try rescaling an image this weekend.

    Thanks again both for your advice.

    Exactly, they are PVRs. If you want a media player then buy a media player. Don't be fooled by the claims that the PVR makers make as to all singing, all dancing capability. The one on the Humax is particularly bad.

    Two problems with slides: First they cannot be more than 3300 x 2500 pixels. Second
    I have found that the Humax does not show the slides in your original order.

    Suspect your second problem is that the Humax just does not sort them, unlike most file managers. Try creating a new folder and copying then in using a file manager - you may get them in the order you want or may have to copy one at a time.
