Ive had them all open in list view on the PC to see if there was any pattern with the ones that wouldnt play, most that wouldnt play seemed to be VBR but not all but I assumed that if there was maybe even one VBR file in a folder, the entire folder wouldnt play.
I spent hours converting them all to WAV and now more of them register and play but still not all?!!
Apparently, this unit is supposed to play all bit rates including VBR according to the specs?!!
I was also unimpressed to find these are not actually Philips units, but halfords with a Philips label!!
If id known this, I may aswel have just bought a cheap and nasty halfords own brand, no frills, value range ripspeed unit
MP3 Encoders vary widely in their function and some burn content in a way that some decoders are unable to reconcile. Depending on the source of the content, how it was originally encoded, and using what encoder, even the speed at which the tracks have been copied will all have an influence on the likelihood for introducing errors into the data, which can also have a marked effect on a decoders ability to access the track data and replay it effectively.
There may also be an issue with DRM content and tracks downloaded originally in other codecs such as AAC, then being converted to MP3, with or without VBR, then to WAV and so on.
Unfortunately the number of variables in these scenarios mean that we cannot give a definitive answer, only to say that content copied from an original, reliable, legitimate source using a proprietary encoder should play without issue on the unit. Please note that as a result of the file structure, storage media with greater capacity will result in increased access times as the unit deciphers the content before accessing it to playback.
Please contact either the store where you purchased it from or if it was an online purchase our customer services dept.
The Philips unit has an SMB aerial connector on the back of it.
If your aerial connector fits, it should work ok.
