MFS-8 NETWORK SWITCH INSTALLATION MANUAL
Introduction
The MFS-8 Network switch is the ideal "Plug-n-Play" solution to protect network WAPs (Wireless Access Points) from multicast audio
streams.
Total Control products, like the DMS-1200 (Multi-zone Amplifier),
DMS-100 (Single-Zone Amplifier) and the SNP-1 (Streaming Network
Player), all multicast audio streams onto the LAN. The nature of a
"multicast" will shut down all wireless access to the network. The
MFS-8 was specifically designed for use with Total Control Systems
and incorporates pre-configured MAC filtering. MAC Filtering completely solves the issue by confining multicast streams to the switch
itself, never allowing streams to affect network traffic in the rest of the
house. Pre-configuration means you don't have to be a Network
Engineer to configure this switch, simply plug your Total Control products into any port and you're ready to go. "Plug-n-Play" integration
produces reliable, predictable network performance.
Warning: NEVER plug a WAP (Wireless Access Point) into the MFS8, since URC multicast audio streams will shut down any brand or
model of WAP.
Features
Eight (8) ports plus one LAN port.
w Mac filtering prevents audio streams from consuming network
w bandwidth.
Activity and Status LEDs plus Connectivity indicator.
w Includes 12 volt power supply.

Network).
10/100 Ports: 8 - 10/100 Ports provide network connectivity to Total
Control streaming products like the DMS-1200, DMS-100 and SNP-1.
MAC Filtering: MAC Filtering prevents audio and video streams
from consuming network bandwidth. Streams are confined to the
switch, optimizing local area network performance.
Network Connectivity and Activity Status Indicators (port specific):
Status indicator LEDs display network connectivity, and network
traffic feedback, for easy troubleshooting.
Wall Mount Bracket: Convenient removable wall bracket allows the
MFS-8 to be mounted to the back of a cabinet or rack. Remove the
wall bracket when placing the MFS-8 on a shelf or stand.

MFS-8 NETWORK SWITCH INSTALLATION MANUAL
MFS-8 Installation Considerations
Only one MAC Filtering switch should be used in a typical Total
Control system. All streaming products like the DMS-1200, DMS100 and SNP-1 must be connected to the switch.
You cannot daisy-chain MFS-8 MAC Filtering switches; communication between switches will be blocked. If you have more than eight
of the above streaming components, simply connect a standard network switch to any port on the MFS-8 and then connect the additional components to the standard switch. This allows the additional
components to benefit from the MFS-8's MAC Filtering, without
affecting communication between devices.
Warning: NEVER plug a WAP (Wireless Access Point) into the MFS-8,
it will not function correctly.

Installation
1. On the back of the MFS-8, connect one end of a CAT5 cable to
the port labeled LAN 10/100.
2. Connect the other end of the CAT5 cable to the LAN (Local Area Network).
3. Connect Total Control and standard network devices to any of
the eight 10/100 Smart Ports.
4. Connect the supplied 12V Power Supply to the MFS-8 and then
plug it into an unswitched AC outlet.
5. Once powered up, the unit begins working in approximately 30
seconds.

MFS-8 Installed in the area with the Network
Distribution
Occasionally you get a retrofit installation where only one CAT5
wire has been run to a room, and there's no way to run another
one. In this case, locate the MFS-8 in the Utility Room, Garage, or
where ever the central distribution point for the Network is located,
and install standard network switches in rooms where you plan to
locate a DMS-1200, DMS-100 or SNP-1.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do I need to use a MFS-8 in a Total Control system?
If you are only controlling a Home Theater with a MRX-10, and
there are no Total Control streaming sources like the DMS-1200 or
DMS-100 in the system, then the answer is NO, you do not need
to use a MFS-8. If you have DMS-1200(s) or DMS-100(s) in the
system, then the answer is YES, you must use a MFS-8 in the
system, connected to those components.
2. Can I connect both PoE (Power over Ethernet) devices like KP4000 keypads and Non-PoE devices to the MFS-8?
No, you cannot use an MFS-8 to power Keypads or Cameras -- it is
not PoE.
3. What if I have more than eight streaming devices?
You can connect a standard network switch to the MFS-8 to expand
the MAC Filtering capabilities of the MFS-8.
4. Can I connect a WAP (Wireless Access Point) to the MFS-8?
No, the WAP will not function properly when multiple streams are
occurring in the system. Connect the WAP to a standard PoE network switch, outside of the MFS-8. Never connect a WAP to the
MFS-8.
5. I have one CAT5 cable going to a room where my client has a
network printer and a PC and I need to install a DMS-100 Single
Zone Amplifier, via the same CAT5 cable, in the room. How do I
connect everything?
In the room where you plan to install the DMS-100, connect a standard network switch to the incoming CAT5, and then connect the
DMS-100, PC and Printer to the switch. It is not recommended to
connect PCs used for internet gaming to a MFS-8, as this may
affect the performance of video gaming during heavy stream usage.
