General Information
1.1 Introduction of the N7
Congratulations with the purchase of the N7 Netstream HDTV box.
The N7 Netstream make it possible to stream digital (pay) TV content
into your home network. The N7 is not a normal set top box and has
no remote control or a connection to a TV set . To control the N7 you
will use a web based interface and software. Within your home
network you and enjoy live streaming TV by software on a computer
or on a media player. More information about the N7 and the actual
software is available at http://www.tv2lan.com
The N7 is produced under the CI standard. Many TV broadcasters
use this standard. To watch Pay TV you need a subscription and a
valid smart card and in some cases a CI module to decrypt the TV
channels.
Note : The Netstream is not certified for CI Plus. In most cases the smart cards from CI Plus systems will function in
the embedded card reader or a Alphacrypt CI module.

2.1 Important to know
Make sure you always use the right cables, connectors and splitters.
For Digital cable TV we advise to use the best quality there is . Avoid
the usage of cheap amplifiers. They make the signal in most cases
worse then it was before. The coaxial cable to the N7 must be as
short as possible. For Digital television not only the signal strength
but also the signal quality very important. Both values must be more
than 50% .
2.2 Connecting the N7 to the signal source
Step 1
Connect your N7 to the signal source ( Digital Cable / DVB-T or
Satellite Dish depending the type of your N7 ) and network cable into
your internet router. Make sure your router supports DHCP. ( With
DHCP your router sends a IP address to every connected device ).
Your router must also be able to pass through IPTV , TCP and UDP
streaming. ( Multicast and Unicast ). Contact the manufacturer of
your router for more information.
Step 2:
After you connected the antenna source and network cable you can
connect the power adapter and hook it up in a wall outlet.

2.5 Placing the smartcard
If you are using pay TV you need a smartcard with a valid
subscription of your paytv operator and / or a CI module for your
encryption system.
Place the smartcard with the chip downwards pointed to the front in
the lower slot of the N7. If you are using a CI interface, place the

3.1 Several ways of watching TV
Before you decided to buy a N7, you probably thought of how you
are going to use it and if you wanted to add 1 or more devices into
your network.The N7 is not a normal set top box. It streams a
channel from your channel bouquet into your home network. You can
watch this stream with the N7 TV player , Boxee but also use it with
third party software such as DVBLink for Anysee N7 ( we bundle a
free copy for you ) to watch Live TV into Windows Media Center.
Media center is included in Windows 7 premium and is perfect to
integrate watch live TV. Check your Windows manual and the site of
DVBLogic ( http://www.dvblogic.com ) how to setup a system with
N7 , DVBLink and Windows Media Center. You will find an easy to
use Wiki there. The license of DVBLink for Anysee N7 is sponsored
for you by Njoy Digital. To use the N7 with Boxee software or the
Boxeebox we have a free Boxee app in our repository. This app will
automatically detect the N7 in your network and you can play the
channels you found in the installation directly from there on your
Boxee software on a Mac , Linux or Windows PC. Also it works
seamlessly with the Boxeebox Especially for 2nd and 3th in the
household its convenient to watch tv that way without pulling extra
coaxial cables. Currently we are also working on XBMC support
If you want to use different software to watch live TV, there are many
options. VLC Media player for example can play our streams directly.
To make that easy we generate a M3U playlist in the web interface
under the tab Channel. That playlist can be used to play the
channels with VLC and other software.

3.5 The Electronic Program Guide (EPG)
The Njoy TV Player can serve you two kinds of EPG. Local and
Remote. Local EPG is the program info that your operator sends you
over the air. Most of the time this is not accurate, and collecting it
takes a long time.
The EPG plus button will show you the most extended EPG
information in the browser of your preference. Because channel
names can vary in different networks we build in an option to match
match you channels with the right EPG information. The most
channels will match automatically by our intelligent software. For
those who we can’t match, you are able to do that manually.
