After dismantling please connect the DVI or SDI Processor to the power supply unit and plug the USB cable. The blue LEDs confirm the connected status.

We recommend establishing a network access via VNC. Depending on your display device it may scale the signal if it cannot display it properly, but it is possible as well that the display devices will stay black completely if you choose a resolution they do not support at all. Thus you will not see the desktop and the menu anymore.

The required driver for the DVI and SDI Processor is pre-installed. All drivers and their updates are free to download on the homepage's Download-Center after login.

Shut down the Player / Server. Do never hotplug the inputs into the DVI / SDI Processor as the graphic card driver might get damaged and needs to be reinstalled. Connect the DVI / SDI Processor's two inputs with the graphic card's outputs via the short DVI (dual link) cables provided. Please be sure, not to use other ones, especially longer cables in order to avoid signal noises or even breakdowns.

Connect the DVI Processor's outputs (either DVI or SDI) to your devices. Contrary to the inputs, the DVI Processor's outputs are hotplug-able.
Connect the SDI Processor's SDI outputs to your devices. Contrary to the inputs, the SDI Processor's outputs are hotplug-able.

Please make sure that the DVI / SDI Processor is powered before switching the Player / Server on.

All connected inputs and outputs are indicated by a blue LED. Red LEDs indicate that the signal is not passing through.

When choosing a different EDID all LEDs except the power and USB LED turn off, then according to your setting the input and output LEDs will change to magenta, red or blue once or twice. Please wait 5 seconds until the desktop background images are displayed properly and do not change anymore. If you choose different settings too fast, the graphic card driver might come into conflict. Then the two input LEDs will stay red no matter what EDID you choose. Please reboot the hardware.
