VRX setup:


  1. Connect HDMI to your display.  Your display must be HDCP capable.  If you do not have HDMI, you can use CVBS but will only receive downscaled standard definition.
  2. Audio output can be via HDMI, analog, or optical.  Select the method(s) you will use and connect to your TV, speaker bar, and or AVR.  You must enter your audio configuration choice in the general setup below (HDMI out is default).
  3. Audio input can be via analog, optical, or coax.  This is used for audio return channel via ethernet to NAB100.  If you need this functionality, connect this input and select it in the general setup below (optical is default).
  4. IR output can be used to control the TV or other equipment via ethernet.
  5. IR input can be used to control XBMC or forwarded via ethernet
  6. Network should be connected to your network switch via 100 Mbps or greater network leg.
  7. RS232 is a control port.  It usually is used to control external equipment via ethernet.  It can also be used to control VRX if desired.
  8. USB can be connected to USB storage is required.  The USB port is NOT hot plugable.  Only connect when powered OFF.
  9. VRX010 is power via the micro USB port.  It requires 1A or greater current.  Any USB port capable of this can be used to power VRX.  Many times the TV will have a suitable port which can be used as long as it is always active (VRX should not power down when the TV does).  Otherwise you can use the included power supply.
  10. Power up the VRX010 after all connections are made.  Power should not be removed from VRX without using the shutdown function, either via the button or the web interface.
  11. The button nearest the NetPlay logo is the SHUTDOWN button.  Press and hold for 6 seconds to start shutdown.  When shutdown is complete all the leds except 1 will be off.  Power can then be removed.
  12. The other button is the "network identify" button.  It is used in setup to find and identify this decoder on the network.


All of the setup below requires finding the IP address of VRX.  This can be done several ways:

General setup

General setup is accessed by typing the IP address of the VRX into a web browser, then selecting "general setup". 

Display Config

Display config is accessed via the link on the main index page.  Note that the settings here are only used if "Video Format" is set to MANUAL in general config.

This page will read the DISPLAY EDID and show how it selected the current format.  In AUTO "video format" mode, the VRX will automatically select the best output format based on a fuzzy logic match between the selected input resolution and the display capabilities.  Normally this will result in the best possible picture.  However, if your display has bad EDID data or you require specific resolutions you can set them manually here.

To make a manually selection, first find the video format in the EDID listing and then enter it in the manual settings form.

You can also use the OSD ON and OSD OFF buttons to turn on/off the debug info OSD.  This can be useful to see the current resolution.
