Managing Haivision Play Set-Top Boxes

When you connect a Haivision Play Set-Top Box (STB) to your network, you need to register it as a device in the Haivision Media Platform domain. This is done from the set-top box using the STB Settings application.


Please refer to the appropriate Play STB Quick Start Guide for the steps to install your set-top box. For more detailed information including how to register and configure your STB, refer to the appropriate Play STB User's Guide (available at the Haivision InfoCenter).

After establishing the connection, the set-top box automatically provisions itself with an application from the network via the HMP. When power is applied to the STB, it remembers the last provisioned system.

You can then manage the set-top box along with other STBs from the Devices screen on HMP web interface. From here you can select one or more devices (STBs) and edit device settings, send commands to control devices, and schedule control command events. You can manage devices individually, as well as in bulk via customizable tags or device type. Filtering by tags or by device type makes it easy to find and select devices for actions or bulk editing.


Administrators can configure the device default settings to apply to new set-top boxes and create tags for tag-based configuration. For more information, refer to Setting Default Set-Top Box Values (in the Administrator's Guide).
