I'm not aware of a file size limit, however if problems keep happening consistently, it may be best to encode the file into two separate files or to see if a different codec works for longer playing files.
I don't have any notes on the firmware, unfortunately, and can't determine if this will fix that specific issue.
Trying to play MP4 files but it seems that there is a limit to the length of video files unit can playback. Have had no problem playing 30 minute sitcom files, but when it comes to larger files there appears to be a limit of around 2 hours. First noticed this when watching a Formula 1 race. The playback unexpectedly ended (TV skipped to the next file on USB stick) with 3 laps remaining. I finished watching the race on my laptop.
I have had the same thing happen on 4 subsequent files. They all playback fine on my laptop, using both VLC player and Quicktime.
I noticed there is a firmware upgrade posted 2010/09/03 version 2006. Will upgrading to this version fix this issue?
Thanks in advance....
