I have a tinytv+ that is reading files weirdly. For example, I have a file named UniqueName.tsv that will play fine but the tinytv will glitch reading ._UniqueName.tsv. To my knowledge, there is no ._UniqueName on the SD card. It seems to be reading an invisible corrupted file. Is there a solution to get it to skip or not play/read the "._ " files?

Are you using a MacOS device?

We encountered an issue with invisible files a bit ago and I added some information to the FAQ, let me know if this helps: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Kits/TinyTV-FAQ/#some-channels-are-empty-or-glitching

If not, let me know what computer/OS you're using and any other details so I can try to reproduce the issue!

Cheers,

Alright I solved It. It helped a little, but here was the solution I found.
1. open command terminal on MacOS
2. type in cd /Volumes/TINYSCREEN    or name of your SD card
3. type ls -al     this should reveal all files visible and hidden
4. check for the ._ files
5. type rm "._FILENAME.tsv"        be very careful with the rm command as you cannot retrieve removed files after they are gone
6. repeat step 5 until all files are gone
7. Problem solved

I am having an issue with glitched videos with static on my tinytv diy kit. I searched for hidden files on windows 10 OS and none seem to be there. Goes with any video I convert and place in the sd card that was included.

Your error is usually rare. I think maybe the new loose SD card leads to such a situation. With your problem I went to check the device.
