Got it replaced!

Thanx to this forum, we tried out our iRV66 in our new Rockwood as we are preping it for our 1st trip only to discover that it had all the issues everyone else had. I called Todd Eash & received a replacement in less than a week. We installed it yesterday....very easily, I must add and it is awesome! We are happy campers! The only thing I couldn't figure out was how to play the movies on a flash drive. I plugged in the flash & then nothing happened. I also put one of those movies on a disc in the correct FAT32 format & also nothing. Does anyone have any tips? I'm not a techy so I hope it's an easy solution.......of course the easiest is to take the few dvds I have or hit Redbox.

Probably not.....hubby was rushing me and was afraid I would screw everything up. I'll be able to fool around with it when we go camping in 2 weeks. I'll take the flash drive with me.....just have to figure out to to set it all up to work correctly.

I've never tried playing movies via USB on the iRV, because I know it won't support the format of a lot of my movies. I know from reading that it's very picky about both the format of the USB storage, and the format of the movie file itself (codecs etc).
I'll be taking a USB harddrive with us on our next big trip, and using the Playstation (which we just use to watch blurays) to play the movies in the main living area, and the samsung bedroom TV for if we want to watch any in the bedroom.

I'd be interested to hear if the visual display on the front of the unit works normally for you. The display on ours jumps around regardless of whether there's any sound, and certainly doesn't work as a normal equalizer display. It's mildly irritating

I talked to Nelson at Patrick Ind (tech guy) and he told me I needed to add component video cables to be able to view video from my iPod and I assume the USB port. When I followed the manual I would only get the sound from the iPod video and TV screen stayed blank. So I'm gong to add the cables and see what happens.

My equalizer also jumps around even with the volume down low, but it doesn't bother me
