    Nice unit for the price. Instructions stink and the support guy gave bad info, but no deal breakers here., December 19, 2013

    This review is from: Martin Ranger HD-DVD880 Digital Echo Mixing Karaoke Amplifier (Electronics)
    The machine seems very nice for the money, shipping was quick, the instruction manual is marginally decent but lacked a couple of vital pieces of info for me (see below for the whole story). I have not tried the mics out yet nor have I tried the ripping or the recording capabilities (I’ll update this after Christmas). I just wanted to get this out asap to save others some potential pain.

    Despite what I’ve read elsewhere and what the manual seems to imply, you CAN connect this unit’s HDMI output directly to a receiver which has HDMI switching capabilities (i.e. the receiver processes the incoming HDMI audio then passes the video signal on through to the TV). I was under the impression that the unit would not output audio from the HDMI output port (which seemed ludicrous and in fact it was since it works fine).

    Moving on to the near deal breaker issue… I have thousands of MP3+G files on my PC and bought this machine in order to play those files directly from a USB thumb drive. Each MP3+G song is comprised of two files – a normal .mp3 audio file and a matching .cdg file which contains the video based scrolling lyrics and whatnot (e.g. SomeSong.mp3 and SomeSong.cdg). I was bummed to find that the unit recognized only the .mp3 file and so it played only the audio, no video (i.e. no scrolling lyrics from the .cdg file…NADA!).

    Called tech support and got right through…the support guy was very nice. I explained my situation and he said this unit would not play Karaoke songs that use the two file format (one with .mp3 extension and matching file with .cdg extension). He said it would play .avi and .vob video as well as the .mp3g files which the machine creates when it rips from CD+G Karaoke disks. I spent a couple hours with converters and nothing worked. Then I remembered he’d mentioned .mp3g. MP3G? Hadn’t heard of that file extension but figured if the unit itself uses that extension on files that it rips/creates then I’d try the same. I changed the file name extension from .mp3 to .mp3g, leaving the .cdg file in place and VIOLA! The machine recognized the .mp3g file and played both the audio and video. Clearly the unit does read .cdg files because if I remove the .cdg file it then plays only the audio from the .mp3 file (actually from the .mp3g file since I’d renamed it).

    In short, if you have a lot of Karaoke songs on your PC in the two file format (a .mp3 file and a .cdg file) you just need to copy the files to a USB thumb drive then change the file extension of all the .mp3 files to .mp3g. Done!

    Fyi, you can use the dos command “rename” (or just ren for short) to quickly change the extension of multiple files in the same directory: rename *.mp3 *.mp3g

    Just wanted to get this info out there to save others the frustration and potentially getting bad info from the support folks.

    Cheers!

    This player is great for the money! The sound played through 5.1 surround is great! The player works great for the song words and DVDs. The 2 mikes work great. The player delivered as advertised!

    So I bought this machine based on other reviews and although it has been a hair-pulling ordeal, I am finally able to make it work properly and am happy.

    What I found out with my machine* and the problem I faced was that if you make a compellation of mp3+g’s and put them on a usb thumbdrive, the songs show up in no discernable order; not alphabetical, not numerical, completely nonsensical. I tried everything I could think of, even stripping out the entire ID tag and still the songs would show up in random order. I called the “tech support” — which sounded like some guy in his garage who spoke really bad English — and he said I would have to just look at the screen and hand-write the number of each song so I knew what order they were in…for 3000+ songs. Uh, no. As a last ditch effort, I decided to see if DVDs worked the same way as the USB, so I put the exact same collection of mp3+g’s on a dvd and they showed up in perfect alphabetical order. I also noticed that scrolling through the list went a lot faster than it did on the USB, so win-win. So in conclusion, I think the USB is for recording you singing only and not really for storing the songs you want to play.

    *I noticed that some folks reported DOA machines, so maybe this is a freak function of only my machine. I don’t know.
