The Iomega ScreenPlay Pro HD is a Windows-only stand-alone, single 1TB hard drive and NAS that you can attach to your TV and play media. However, as much as we liked the ScreenPlay Pro HD’s on-screen interface, we found its remote difficult to use.
The ScreenPlay Pro HD will output full 1080 video via HDMI, component, and composite jacks; audio output options include both analog and digital jacks. And you get composite video and analog audio inputs for recording video directly from a video source (using the one-touch record).
Other than the clunky remote interface, the unit worked very well with the media types it supported, including MP3, JPEG, and DivX. However, it wouldn’t play high-definition .wmv files or H.264 files, as supported by the DMA. The only playback glitch that we noticed was that a 1280 by 544 X-Men DivX trailer we used for testing displayed full-screen with the edges off screen, instead of displaying as letterboxed.
