Noontec MovieHome V7 IIs - problems with detecting drives
I bought three of these many years ago now knowing that they were all likely to get phased out as TV's have media players built into them now but prefer the easy of use of my noontec.
As the ext portable drive gets older the noontec has problems detecting video and sees empty folders even though there are plenty of videos in the folder.
The only way around this is to buy a new ext portable drive and then copy from the old portable drive to the new one.
Out of all the media players I have tried these are the best but have many problems.
They do tend to die after about 5 years though. Wish I had bought more.
I like the fact it has 2 USB inputs for my hard drives up to 2T is max tried 3T but to big. I like it supports multiple file formats.Easy to use. Excellent for viewing movies. Great for my every day use I would purchase another. Had it a few years now still works
great when it works, but it stopped working and nowhere to take it to repair
it was great product while it worked (I had it for about 6 months) and it suddenly did not work anymore -like it did not switch on- and I don't find where to take it to have it seen.
while it was working I was very pleased since have dvd s copied in different formats and it read them all. but as I said, there is nowhere to take it when it doesn't work.
Nice Entry Level Full HD Media Player
Finished in gloss black plastic, this media looks good, has a full sized remote and neatly fits in with most home theatres, the front panel only contains one small led, blue when on and red when off, this is a pleasant change from many other players with ultra bright front displays and indicator lights. I have installed a 4TB internal hard drive, this is one of the few media players which will recognize hard drives this size. It is a simple process formatting the drive from the system menu and adding media content from a computer. After upgradi...ng the firmware to the latest version this media player has been able to play everything I have installed. TS/VOB/MP4/MP3/AVI/ISO/Jpeg. Two USB 2.0 inputs, HDMI out, coaxial audio out and composite output and card reader. The V7 IIs would have been much better if it had Wi-Fi and contained a cooling fan but at its price point I guess you cant have everything. The menu is basic but functional, if you place a photo in your movie or music folders pictures will be displayed rather than plain yellow folders. This media player has English subtitles on as default so you are required to turn them off for each movie. I would highly recommended the Noontec V7 IIs to anyone not requiring Wi-Fi or Digital Tuners in their media player.

Questions & Answers
I bought the Noontec media player about 6 years ago. The 'play from last stop function' stopped working a few years ago and attempts to find a software update to enable this function again failed. I now have to use the go to function to go to a specific time in the file I'm watching. I recently tried watching movies from a WD 8TB external hard drive, but it doesn't read the ehd, despite powering up when it's connected to the media player. What do I do to enable the 'play from last stop function' again and to enable it to read the WD 8TB external hard drive?
I have a noontec V711s the remote is not working can someone please point me to where i could possibly purchase a replacement.
My remote is broken. Will the Logitech harmony 350 universal remote work with the Noontec V7ii media player? This universal remote is only about $55.
Suppose you could try. When I knew these were getting phased out I bought 3 Noontec VIIs media players and glad I did. After about 7 years they start to play up.
