Video files do not appear in the HMG files structure therefore they cannot be played.
I also tried video from my IPhone into the receivers front USB/IPod interface but was only presented with the audio tracks of any video I tried to play.
Are there any solutions for this without me having to buy an expensive media server?
Thanks so much!
With the SC-25/27 you should be able to play video with your iPhone according to the manual.
Make sure you have it connected with the supplied Pioneer cable as shown on page 43 of your manual...
Note compatibility on page 52:This system is compatible with the audio and video of the iPod nano, iPod fifth generation (audio only), iPod classic, iPod touch and iPhone.
However, some of the functions may be restricted for some models. The system is not compatible with the iPod shuffle.
Compatibility may vary depending on the software version of your iPod and iPhone. Please be sure to use the latest available software
Note on page 52, for video, you have to switch control from the receiver to the iPod from the remote.1 Press iPod CTRL to switch the iPod controls.
This enables operation and display on your iPod, and this
receiver's remote control and GUI screen become
2 Press iPod CTRL again to switch back to the receiver
This is similar to how the SC-09 works as well..
Also, on your iPod, make sure you have output to DISPLAY set.
On my nanopod its: VIDEO > SETTINGS > TV OUT
There's also settings for signal, screen and size you can play with.
Hope that helps.
