- 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
- 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).
- 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).
- IR output can be used to control the TV or other equipment via ethernet.
- IR input can be used to control XBMC or forwarded via ethernet
- Network should be connected to your network switch via 100 Mbps or
greater network leg.
- 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.
- USB can be connected to USB storage is required. The USB port is
NOT hot plugable. Only connect when powered OFF.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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:
- Identifying the device using the Virtual Matrix application, then
selecting "Sink status". The IP address will be shown with a direct
link to that devices setup page.
- Using a Bonjour browser application and scanning for "telnet" devices.
All VRX devices will be detected and you can retreive their IP address.
- The IP address will be displayed for 10 seconds on the attached display
at the end of the boot process.
- Using SDDP in Control4
General setup is accessed by typing the IP address of the VRX into a web
browser, then selecting "general setup".
- Device type: Must be set to 0
- Virtual matrix manager: This will be set to 1 on only ONE VRX
device in the system, preferably one that is used the least. All other
VRX devices must set this to 0.
- Terminal mode: This will be set to 0 unless you are using terminal
- Logitech Media Server: If you will use NetPlay audio services,
select ONE VRX or NAB in the system to run the LMS server. That device
has this set to 1, all other devices must set this to 0.
- BTSync: If you will be used BTSync to automatically sync
folders/databases across different installation, select ONE VRX or NAB
device to run this service. That device has this set to 1, all other
devices must set this to 0.
- XBMC: Set to 1 to use XBMC GUI mode. Set to 0 to use Digital
Signage GUI mode (default).
- NetPlay Audio routing: This selects which audio output jacks will
be active when playing AUDIO only via NetPlay audio.
- NetPlay Video routing: This selects which audio output jacks will
be active when playing VIDEO.
- Audio outputs: This can be used to force passthrough or PCM mode.
Normally it is left on AUTO.
- Video jacks: This can be used to force HDMI or CVBS.
Normally it is left on AUTO.
- Audio capture default: If using audio return channel, select the
- Video format: This can be used to force a specific video output
format. Normally it is left on AUTO. If manual mode is used, the
standard is selected via the "Display config" link from the index page.
- Video Aspect ratio: This can be used to force aspect ratio
behavior. Normally it is left on AUTO.
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
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.
- Video format group: Either CEA or DMT
- Video format number: 0-255, find these in the EDID listing below
or the standard CEA or DMT tables
- Type: HDMI or DVI
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.
