How to Set Up Your Media Player

Connecting the media player to your TV:


  1. Remove your media player, power adapter, HDMI cable and remote from the original packaging.
  2. It is recommended you set your media player in a position least visible to your customers.
  3. Plug in a USB mouse and keyboard, next, the HDMI cable from the box to your television and last, the power adapter that came with your device.
  4. If your TV comes equipped with HDMI-CEC (and it’s enabled), the media player will turn on your TV and switch to the correct input. Once booted, the TV will be waiting at the app login prompt.

Setting up WiFi:

It is strongly advised to use an Ethernet (hard wired) connection for all business critical devices. These media players do come with 802.11ac wireless capabilities if this is not an option.
