Start Up – Connecting your player
To use your player, you need to connect it to your TV, your network, and a power source.
Plug the power adaptor to power up your player.
Connect your player to your TV by using HDMI or composite cable depending on your TV.
For standard stereo sound (2-channels, left/right), use the red and white connectors on the
composite cable. For surround sound (5.1 audio), use either an HDMI or optical audio cable,
NOTE: If you use an HDMI cable, you don’t need separate audio and video cables.
Even if you use a high-resolution setup, audio/video quality may be compromised based on
the speed of your broadband Internet connection.
Connect your player to a broadband network with sufficient bandwidth to receive live
streams (2.0 Mbps or greater). See “Connecting your player to your home network” for
To view videos through your player, you must connect your player to your home network
using either a wireless or wired connection. Your home network must have broadband
Internet access, so that your player can access the Internet when it is connected to your
home network. A minimum connection speed of 1.5Mbps is required. However, we
recommend using a connection that is 2.0Mbps or faster. If you’re using a wired connection,
follow these steps to connect your player to your network.

other end of the ethernet cable to your Internet router.

Understanding player performance
The quality of the video and audio of your player is dependent on a combination of several
Your audio/video connections - The type of audio and video connections you use to connect
your player and your TV may impact sound and picture quality. In general, HDMI and optical
audio are superior to stereo audio. Similarly, HDMI and component video are superior to
S-Video. Additionally, HDMI, component video, and S-Video are all better than composite
video. Use your best available option when connecting the audio and video cables to your
Your broadband speed - Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) determines your broadband
speed. We recommend a minimum connection speed of 1.5 Mbps. For the best quality
picture, a connection speed of 2.0 Mbps is required. Sometimes your broadband speed varies
based on your ISP’s network conditions. Contact your ISP if you have problems maintaining a
fast connection that is reliable, or if you want to increase your connection speed. Many ISPs
offer a variety of broadband speed options.
Your home network - In many homes, the Internet connection is shared with other devices
such as computers, gaming consoles, network hard drives, and so on. If any of these
network devices are transferring large amounts of data across your network (such as a file
transfer, online gaming, or other instances of streaming video), your sound and picture
quality may be compromised.
