Connecting your STB

To connect your STB:

  1. Unpack the box.
  2. Visually inspect the package contents for any evidence of shipping damage.
  3. Place the Haivision Play 1000 Set-Top Box on a flat surface near the display, ensuring nothing is blocking the signal from the remote control to the set-top box.
  4. Connect the LAN port on the set-top box to the IP network using an Ethernet cable (type Cat 5 or higher). This allows the unit to communicate with the Haivision Media Platform server.
  5. Connect the video and audio output jacks to the monitor, using the desired connection:
    • HDMI Digital Video + Audio: Use an HDMI cable to connect the HDMI jack.

    • VGA Analog Video + Baseband Audio: Use a VGA cable to connect to the VGA jack.

    • Composite (CVBS) NTSC/PAL Analog Video + Baseband Audio: Use a composite A/V cable to connect to the Composite video (yellow RCA jacket).
    • Y, Pb, Pr Component Video + Baseband Audio: Use a component cable to connect the Component (Y, Pb, Pr) jacks. 
      For Baseband audio, use an A/V cable to connect to the audio (red/white RCA jacks) jacks. 


      Only one A/V source is active at a time.

  6. Turn on your video monitor.

  7. Connect the power cable to the set-top box, and then plug the power adapter into a wall socket. Use only the A/C power adapter provided with the unit. The STB automatically starts when power is applied.


For HDMI output, if you connected the power supply to the set-top box before turning on the monitor, the set-top box uses an incorrect resolution and the display appears distorted. If this occurs, use the following workaround: Press the Video button on the remote control to change the output resolution, and the played video becomes normal.
