Sorry to hear that you're having problems. Make sure your MPEG files aren't 1080p. Sony doesn't support those. At least my Sony Blu-ray player doesn't. I don't see why restarting the server would help. That's interesting. Your USB memory stick test probably doesn't mean anything because most manufac...

First check to make sure your device plays this format. If your device plays this format please let me know.

In the meantime, you may want to try changing to other device profiles and see if that helps.
