Crestron CEN-TVAV
Ethernet Enabled Programmable TV/AV Controller
Ethernet Enabled Programmable
TV/AV Controller: CEN-TVAV
Description
Functional Description
The CEN-TVAV is an Ethernet based, multi-purpose television/audio-visual
(TV/AV) device controller that is compatible with SIMPL™ Windows®. The
CEN-TVAV can communicate over an Ethernet/local area network (LAN) or wide
area network (WAN) using standard Internet protocol (IP) and can be used as a
standard Crestron remote control system (herein referred to as the Cresnet system)
peripheral or as a “smart” peripheral. As a standard Cresnet system peripheral, the
CEN-TVAV can be added as a Cresnet network device to a host CEN-TVAV,
CNMSXAV/PRO, or CNRACKX/-DP with all logic, infrared (IR) drivers, and serial
strings stored in the control system programming logic. In the “smart” peripheral
mode, the CEN-TVAV and may be programmed to store and execute SIMPL and
SIMPL+ programs.
The CEN-TVAV controls the ON/OFF and many or most functions of an attached
TV or AV device. The unit provides operating power to the device and controls the
device through a Crestron SmarTouch infrared probe (STIRP). The CEN-TVAV also
provides four Versiports ports (each capable of digital inputs/or digital outputs or
analog inputs) for controlling or monitoring external equipment.
The CEN-TVAV may also be enabled and operated with optional handheld IR
transmitters. To prevent interference from most standard IR frequencies and/or
fluorescent lighting, the CEN-TVAV and optional transmitters operate at 455
kilohertz (kHz). Contact Crestron customer service for further information.
The CEN-TVAV may be utilized as a “smart” peripheral, a standard Cresnet system
peripheral, or a “mixed mode” peripheral. For descriptions of the three ways to
perform different functions, refer to the following paragraphs.
In Local Processing Mode, the CEN-TVAV functions as a “smart” peripheral. The
built-in CEN-TVAV devices (IR Port, Versiport, Com Port, Power Sensor, and IR
Gateway) are accessed and controlled by the SIMPL Windows program loaded into
the CEN-TVAV.

Ethernet Enabled Programmable TV/AV Controller
Crestron CEN-TVAV
The CEN-TVAV was designed as a “scaled down” control system and does not
support dynamic preset storage that may be required by certain macros, such as
dynamic camera presets, etc. Having a simulated clock and simulated NVRAM, if
power is lost the clock and symbols utilizing NVRAM do not maintain previous
settings.
In Remote Processing Mode, a CEN-TVAV may be used as an Ethernet peripheral
within a host control system program. When this is done, all the functionality of the
CEN-TVAV (such as the IR Port, Versiport, Com Port, Power Sensor, and IR
Gateway) is accessed via the host control system program with no programming
within the CEN-TVAV. For example, IR can be generated by the CEN-TVAV by
programming the host control system only.
The Mixed Mode is a combination of the Local Processing and Remote Processing
Modes. For example, the Versiports can be programmed to control other equipment
from the program in the CEN-TVAV and the IR Port can be generated via the host
control system (no IR driver loaded in the CEN-TVAV). It is not recommended to
communicate to a port of the CEN-TVAV (such as the IR Port) through a program in
the CEN-TVAV itself and via a host control system.
Physical Description
Shown below is the STIRP and 5-pin connector plug that are supplied with the
CEN-TVAV. When connected to the IR port of the CEN-TVAV and positioned near
an attached TV or AV device, the STIRP (or other IR device) emits IR signals that
control the attached device. The provided 5-pin connector plug shown may be
connected to the I/O port of the CEN-TVAV and used for digital inputs, digital
outputs, and analog inputs to control and monitor up to four external devices.

The CEN-TVAV, shown on the next page, is housed in a black enclosure with silkscreened labels on the front and rear panels. On the front panel are 15 light-emitting
diodes (LEDs) for indicating the status of the unit, the Ethernet that it is connected
to, and the attached device(s). All connections are made through the rear panel.
There are four rubber feet on the base of the unit for stability and to prevent slippage.
The CEN-TVAV is also available as an international version. All of the features are
identical with the exception of an international power-in cord and power out
receptacle, and unit nomenclature of CENI-TVAV. Throughout this operations
guide, all references to CEN-TVAV apply to both versions except where noted.

24VDC, 20K ohms input impedance, logic threshold 1.25VDC. Digital outputs offer
250 milliamp sink from maximum 24VDC; catch diodes provide transient protection
for use with “real world” loads. Analog inputs are rated 0 - 10VDC, protected to
24VDC maximum, 20K ohms input impedance; pin-programmable 2K ohms pullup
resistor to +5V. The pin labeled G is the common ground for pins 1-4.
IR
This 3.5mm mini-jack is used by the STIRP (provided) to control an attached TV or
AV device. The jack accepts mono (2-conductor) or stereo (3-conductor) mini-plugs.
Multiple IR drivers may be loaded into the CEN-TVAV and a ST-SPL may be used
for control of multiple AV devices.
POWER OUT
WARNING: When the POWER IN cord is plugged into an energized outlet,
POWER OUT becomes energized. Crestron recommends connecting the TV or AV
device before plugging the POWER IN cord into an outlet.
NOTE: The maximum continuous current from the POWER OUT under any
external load shall not exceed a current limit that is suitable for the minimum wire
gauge and maximum length used for the interconnecting cable(s).
NOTE: The maximum load applied to the POWER OUT shall not exceed the rated
voltage and current as specified on the unit.
This receptacle provides AC power (refer to the rear panel label for details) for a TV
or AV device. The receptacle is hard-wired to the POWER IN cord and is NOT
protected with a fuse.
The power out receptacle may be programmed to sense whether the attached device
is OFF or ON. A large current detected by the receptacle is used to indicate that the
attached device is ON and the absence of (or very low) current indicates the device is
OFF. If the CEN-TVAV (or control system) detects that the device is ON, the
program can be coded to not allow the CEN-TVAV to attempt to turn it ON, which
would inadvertently turn it OFF. This is true if the IR driver does not have discrete
ON and OFF functions, but only a POWER function.
POWER IN
This attached power cord supplies operating AC power (refer to the rear panel label
and/or “Leading Specifications” section of this guide for details) to the CEN-TVAV
and the POWER OUT port. An internal fuse electrically protects the CEN-TVAV
circuitry from excessive power input.

Libraries) of Crestron’s website (www.crestron.com). Search for MODULAR.PDF.
When calculating the wire gauge for a particular Cresnet run, the length of the run
and the load factor of each network unit to be connected must be taken into
consideration. If Cresnet units are to be daisy-chained on the run, the load factor of
each unit to be daisy-chained must be added together to determine the load factor of
the entire chain. If the unit is a home-run from a Crestron system power supply
network port, the load factor of that unit is the load factor of the entire run. The
length of the run in feet and the load factor of the run should be used in the following
resistance equation to calculate the value on the right side of the equation.

Cable Configuration for Programming
The CEN-TVAV may be programmed through the host control system or directly via
the local RS-232 port. To program the CN-TVAV at the RS-232 port, a modular
cable, an RJ11 to DB9F adapter and 6-conductor modular cable are required. These
components are not supplied but are part of the SmarTouch Programming Kit
(ST-PK). If available, use these components.
When programming, refer to the figure on the next page for a typical connection
diagram. Complete the following steps in the order provided to ensure proper
connection.
WARNING: When the POWER IN cord is plugged into an energized outlet,
POWER OUT becomes energized. Crestron recommends connecting the TV or AV
device before plugging the POWER IN cord into an outlet.
NOTE: The following procedure assumes that a touchpanel is being used as the
user interface. If a wireless hand-held transmitter is utilized, no connections to a user
interface need to be made.

Special Considerations for Using the RS-232 Port
for Uploading Programs
The CEN-TVAV has a single RS-232 port that is used for uploading programs and
communicating with RS-232 equipment for control purposes. Since the port is
shared, the operation of the console port is slightly different from standard CNX
systems that have a dedicated RS-232 console ports. When a program is loaded into
a CEN-TVAV that uses the TVAVCOM-1 port, the program will initialize but the
shared port will still be attached to the console. The program will run normally, but
the TVAVCOM-1 port will effectively be “disconnected” from the system. This is
done so other configurations (such as uploading SIMPL+ modules, setting the IP
Table, etc.) can be done.
After the program is rebooted (using F10 in the Viewport or cycling operating
power), the shared port is taken over by the TVAVCOM-1 port (if the TVAVCOM-1
symbol is present in the program) when the SIMPL program initializes. Note that
SIMPL Windows will not convert the TVAVCOM-1 port if there are no signals or
data coded in the port, or if the symbol is commented out. When the program
initializes, the normal TVAV bootup messages will be issued out the TVAVCOM-1
port, i.e.:
TVAV Monitor v5.10.13 - 03/07/00 - interrupt serial i/o
512k flash memory, 512k SRAM, segment =F900
Press <esc> now to enter debug monitor
If there is a device hooked up to the TVAVCOM-1 port, the bootup message may be
treated as false characters and cause device errors. It is possible to set the baud rate
to DISABLE (pressing F8 while in the Viewport and selecting DISABLE) for the
console port. This will cause the initial bootup message to not be displayed. In order
to obtain communications with the CEN-TVAV through the RS-232 port, the
following methods can be used:

The console port is always accessible, regardless of whether or not the program
contains a TVAVCOM-1 port, if the console connection is established via "TCP/IP
Console Connection" on page 19. To prevent the console switchover during program
development, the TVAVCOM-1 port may be commented out. If the TVAVCOM-1
port is not programmed in SIMPL Windows (if the definition is present but the Port
contains no data), then the console port will never be taken over and is always
accessible.
Cable Configuration for Normal Operation
When operating the CEN-TVAV under normal conditions, refer to the figure on the
next page for a typical connection diagram.
WARNING: When the POWER IN cord is plugged into an energized outlet,
POWER OUT becomes energized. Crestron recommends connecting the TV or AV
device before plugging the POWER IN cord into an outlet.
CAUTION: When the ETHERNET port is connected to a larger network via a hub,
make sure that a straight (non-crossover type) Ethernet cable is used and that the
cable is NOT connected to the UPLINK port of an Ethernet hub.
CAUTION: If making connections to the CRESNET modular port, DO NOT use
6-conductor telephone cables. Telephone cables are wired in a crisscross fashion and
are not compatible with Crestron equipment. Use the modular cable provided.

Loading Crestron Control Software
Crestron control software is available in an electronic form; CD-ROM, email, or
from Crestron’s website. Regardless of how and from where the software is
obtained, this section provides the necessary installation steps. Before performing the
procedures in this section, refer to “Cable Configuration for Programming” on
page 8 for cabling instructions.
Installing Crestron Development Tools
Crestron provides software tools for programming the CEN-TVAV. Even if only the
control software is being loaded into the hardware and there are no plans to do any
programming, some Crestron development software must be installed on the PC.
Currently, Crestron programming is accomplished with the use of the following
development tools listed in the table shown on the next page.
NOTE: If the intent is to load software developed elsewhere, install SIMPL
Windows only. To program control systems, install all three applications.

Crestron Development Tools
DEVELOPMENT TOOL
SIMPL Windows
VisionToolsTM Pro-e
DEAL for Windows
DESCRIPTION
Used to program the CEN-TVAV.
Used to design touchpanel layouts and to program
SmarTouch Systems.
Used for learning (using the optional CNXLIR) and
maintaining IR driver files.
Before installing any development tools, confirm that all other applications such as
Microsoft® Office, etc. are closed. The website and CD provide instructions for
installing the various tools. When initiating a custom install from the CD, the user is
presented with a list of the software programs, documentation, and other resources.
For each item, set or clear a checkbox to the left of the item to direct the installation
program whether to install that component onto the hard drive. The size of the each
item installed determines how much disk space is required. Each development tool
contains a help file that can be opened from the Help pull-down menu. Refer to these
files for additional information.
Initial Setup
To avoid any procedural errors,
follow the steps in the order
provided.
After installing the desired development tool, various job files may be obtained from
Crestron or other sources. Using Windows Explorer™, complete the following steps.
These steps ensure that all job files reside on the hard drive (C:) in the Directory
\CRESTRON\PROJECTS\MYJOB.
1.
Navigate to the SIMPL directory on the hard drive. Assume that the
default install directory is C:\CRESTRON.
2.
Create a new folder for the project files. Although the folder where the
files are placed is not critical, it is easier to manage projects if a logical
structure is created. For example, create a new folder, called
PROJECTS, underneath the CRESTRON directory. Create another
folder, called MYJOB, under PROJECTS for the current job. The
resulting pathname is C:\CRESTRON\PROJECTS\ MYJOB.
3.
Copy the supplied files into the folder created in the last step. The
source of the file determines the procedure.
From a floppy disk: Most floppy disks sent from Crestron contain a
common directory structure designed to make it easier to organize files.
Copy the entire contents of the disk(s) including the directory structure.
From an EXE file: If a job is downloaded from the Crestron website
or is received via email, all files may have been compressed into a
single, self-extracting archive. This archive has an EXE extension.
First, copy the EXE file into the directory stated in step 1, then doubleclick on the file name to begin decompressing the file. The program
asks for a location for the extracted files. In this case, browse for the
same directory where the archive was copied. (Once files are extracted,
retain the original EXE file in case files need to be restored.)
Operations Guide - DOC. 5720A
Ethernet Enabled Programmable TV/AV Controller: CEN-TVAV • 13
Ethernet Enabled Programmable TV/AV Controller
Crestron CEN-TVAV
From a ZIP file: If the downloaded job is from Crestron’s website or
e-mail, all files may have been compressed into an archive file with a
ZIP extension.
For this ZIP file to be used by SIMPL Windows, select File | Import
Archived Program from the Crestron Viewport. This will open a
dialog box similar to the one shown below, after selecting the ZIP to
import.
Import an Archived (ZIP File) Program Dialog Box
The job may be copied to any folder or directory, and the User IR,
Macro, and SIMPL+ files will be copied to the proper directories. If a
version of SIMPL Windows lower than 1.30.01 is being used, copy the
ZIP file into the job directory stated in step 1, then extract the files with
a program called WinZip. Obtain a copy of this program from their
website (www.winzip.com) on the Internet. Extract the files into the
same directory where the archive was copied. Once files are extracted,
retain the original ZIP file in case the files need to be restored at any
point. The User IR, Macro, and SIMPL+ modules will need to be
copied to their proper directories manually.
File Types
There are quite a few file types involved with Crestron
control software. This section explains the different
types that might be encountered in each directory. In
many cases, the supplied software is grouped into a
number of subdirectories. The intent is to keep files
organized. For example, after copying the files to the
hard disk, the directory structure may appear as shown
on the right.
Possible Directory Structure
NOTE: In this example, the Vt3501 and
Vt3502directories represent two touchpanels that are
part of the entire remote control system. Consult the
connection sheets or other supplied information to
determine which directory corresponds to a given
touchpanel.

Loading Touchpanels
When programmed in the Local Processing Mode, the CEN-TVAV may utilize one
or more touchpanels. Each panel must be set to the proper network identification
(NET ID) and loaded with a touchpanel project in order to work properly in
conjunction with the system program loaded in “Loading the System Program” on
page 20. For each panel in the system, a separate HEX file describing the graphical
elements of the panel is required. In some cases, where two or more panels are to be
identical in usage, a single HEX file may be used.
To load a touchpanel project into the panel, use the Crestron Viewport or the Upload
Project function in VisionTools Pro-e. For consistency, the steps that follow this
paragraph use the Viewport. To upload a HEX file into the touchpanel, complete the
following steps in the order provided.
1.
Verify that the touchpanel is connected to the CEN-TVAV via the
appropriate cable. Also, verify that the touchpanel is set to the proper
NET ID. (This info should be available in the system connection sheets
or directly from the programmer.)
2.
If the Crestron Viewport is not open, select Tools | Viewport.
3.
Select Diagnostics | Report Network Devices (alternatively, depress
F4) and verify that the touchpanel to be loaded reports back and is at
the expected NET ID.
4.

Alt+T).
5.
Set the NET ID to the ID of the touchpanel to be loaded.
6.
Browse for the supplied HEX file and click the Open button. The file is
sent to the CEN-TVAV and then over the Cresnet network to the
touchpanel. Verify that the touchpanel displays a message saying that
the upload is in progress.
Updating the CEN-TVAV
The CEN-TVAV contains an Operating System, a Monitor ROM, and TCP/IP Stack.
Although there are separate components, they are packaged together in a Control
System Update File. Control system update files have the UPZ extension. It is often
necessary to update a control system if new features have been implemented (such as
support for new hardware or new language constructs) or if programming “bugs”
have been corrected.
NOTE: SIMPL Windows version 1.40.07 or later is required to update the UPZ.
When the UPZ is loaded, the program and SIMPL+ modules will be erased so they
must be reloaded after a UPZ is loaded.
The following procedure is recommended to load a new UPZ file into the
CEN-TVAV.

Crestron customer service for assistance.
IP Table Setup
Ethernet devices that are addressed by the CEN-TVAV may have their IP addresses
set either in the SIMPL Windows program or through the Crestron Viewport using a
PC. Just as each Cresnet device is assigned a Cresnet NET ID, e.g. 03 through FE, to
be used when programming, an Ethernet device is assigned an IP ID which also may
range from 03 through FE. Ultimately, each IP ID is converted into an actual IP
address through an IP table that exists inside the CEN-TVAV.
NOTE: The CEN-TVAV has a limit of non-zero entries that may be entered into the
IP table. Although those entries may be placed anywhere in the table (position 03 to
FE), attempting to place more than seven (7) non-zero entries in the table will result
in an error message. Mark the CNMSX-PRO entry as the one and only “master”
entry.

Adding Devices and IP Table Setup in SIMPL Windows
To add Ethernet devices to your program, in the SIMPL Windows' Configuration
Manager, drag an Ethernet device, e.g. a CEN-IO or a Virtual Touchpanel symbol,
into the program. Drop it onto the "Ethernet Units" arrow underneath the "Cresnet
Units" arrow. (If the arrow is not visible in the System View window, pull the
window divider down further.)
1.
Double click on the icon and assign an IP ID and a corresponding IP
address in the tabbed configuration dialog titled "IP Net Address".
2.
In the SIMPL Windows Program Manager, connect signals to the
"Virtual Touchpanel" symbol, exactly as you would to a regular wired
Touchpanel symbol.
NOTE: For more detailed information, refer to the SIMPL Windows help file by
selecting Help | Help Topics. Select the Index tab, type in IP Table, then select
Adding Ethernet Devices to a SIMPL Windows Program.
When the SIMPL Windows program is compiled, the compiler creates an IP table
consisting of the IP IDs and the IP addresses for the various Ethernet devices. During
upload, choose whether to load this IP table or whether to use the table that already
exists in the CEN-TVAV.
Changing the IP Table via Crestron Viewport
You can modify the corresponding IP address for any IP ID without changing or
reloading the program by changing the IP table directly. From the Crestron
Viewport, select Functions | Setup IP Table then click the Retrieve Current IP
Table from Control System button. This will extract the IP table from the
CEN-TVAV and list it in the dialog box. Modify or delete existing entries or add

Crestron e-control™ IP Table Information
It is extremely important that the IP ID in the SIMPL Windows program match the
IP ID (sometimes called the Cres ID) encoded in the Crestron e-control Software
Development Kit (SDK) object by the developer of the Web page or Visual Basic®
program.
If more than one PC uses the same IP ID for a connection (e.g. each loads the same
Web page), the CNX Gateway will duplicate all packets that are received from the
CEN-TVAV to each of the identical IP IDs. This is known as touchpanel tracking.
The IP address that is typed into the virtual touchpanel devices in the SIMPL
Windows program is the IP address of the CNX Gateway, not of the individual PCs
(running a web browser or Active CNX application). This is because individual PCs
may change, but the CNX Gateway normally does not.

Programming with SIMPL™ Windows® or SIMPL+
SIMPL (Symbol Intensive Master Programming Language) is an easy-to-use
programming language that is completely integrated and compatible with all
Crestron system hardware. The objects that are used in SIMPL Windows are called
symbols. SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop functionality in a familiar Windows
environment.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron Electronics' software for programming Crestron control
systems. It provides a well-designed graphical environment with a number of
workspaces (i.e., windows) in which a programmer can select, configure, program,
test, and monitor a Crestron control system.
The next three sections describe a CEN-TVAV within SIMPL Windows. The first
section details the programming modes of the CEN-TVAV, the second section
describes typical CEN-TVAV applications, and the third section provides the
location of example programs.
NOTE: The following descriptions assume that the reader has knowledge of SIMPL
Windows. If not, refer to the extensive help information provided with the software.
NOTE: If programmed with SIMPL Windows, the CEN-TVAV may be loaded with
a BIN file of 250K or less, and for SIMPL+, the unit is limited to 256K. Descriptions
and examples are provided in the following sections.

Programming Modes
The CEN-TVAV may be utilized three ways to perform different functions; Local
Processing, Remote Processing, and Mixed Modes. As shown below, the CENTVAV and its supporting devices have been added to SIMPL Windows.
New SIMPL Windows’ Devices for Programming the CEN-TVAV
NOTE: Refer to “Leading Specifications” on page 7 of this Operations Guide for
the version of SIMPL Windows required to program the CEN-TVAV.
NOTE: The CEN-TVAV contains no NVRAM. It has “simulated” NVRAM,
meaning that conventional (volatile) memory is mapped into the NVRAM space.
When power is disconnected, the contents of memory are lost. Rather than restrict
the usage of NVRAM symbols (such as RAM, SMEM, etc.), the mapping allows
some SIMPL programs to use NVRAM for runtime calculations. Runtime
calculations are not essential if power is lost and are reset at startup (i.e. such as
putting names into an SMEM when using the QUE symbol).
NOTE: The CEN-TVAV also does not have a hardware clock. The clock must be
reset at startup.
NOTE: The compiler will detect usage of NVRAM symbols or DEVICE SYSTEM
(real time clock driver) and flag it in the error log as warnings when programming.
Local Processing Mode
In the Local Processing Mode, the CEN-TVAV is programmed to access and control
its local hardware ports. Use the Configuration Manager workspace (Project |
Configure System) in SIMPL Windows to select and configure all the devices that
need to be included into the system. From the Control Systems folder in the Device
Library select CEN-TVAV. Drag and drop the CEN-TVAV into System View and
the symbol appears as shown on the next page.

Remote Processing Mode
In the Remote Processing Mode, the CEN-TVAV does not contain a program. The
slots and Cresnet devices are accessed solely from the host control system that
generates all the proper network packets to control the hardware. To utilize a
CEN-TVAV as a peripheral, drag and drop the "CEN-TVAV Remote Processing"
from the "Ethernet Control Modules" on to the Ethernet slot in the CNMSX. The
CEN-TVAV appears in the program view as shown below.
NOTE: In the diagram below, all 16 channels of the CEN-ISC(R) device are not
shown for clarity.

Ethernet Enabled Programmable TV/AV Controller
Crestron CEN-TVAV
Mixed Mode
SIMPL Windows contains InterSystem Communication (ISC) devices that reside in
a slot of the CEN-TVAV. When the CEN-TVAV is operating in purely a Local
Processing Mode using CEN-ISC(L) or purely a Remote Processing Mode using
CEN-ISC(R), the ISC's are not used and may be commented out. The advantage of
ISC's is best utilized in the CEN-TVAV Mixed Mode. The program residing in a
CEN-TVAV requires the CEN-ISC (16 Channels) to be dropped on the CEN-ISC
slot in order to use the ISC's. Each ISC has digital, analog, and serial I/O functions
that are similar to an intersystem communications symbol (XSIG), though it does not
function like an XSIG in the underlying ops.
Combinations of Local Processing Mode and Remote Processing Mode can be used.
A program can reside inside the CEN-TVAV running logic (SIMPL and SIMPL+
code) and also accessing the local hardware. A peripheral definition can also reside
inside the host control system and also access the CEN-TVAV local hardware. It is
possible, for example, to write the code such that the TVAVIR-1 is driven both from
the host unit and the CEN-TVAV itself.
Only the TVAVIR-1 and TVAVIO-5 can be controlled by both the remote unit and
the CEN-TVAV. Logic for these can exist in both the remote and local programs.
The TVAVIRGW and TVACOM-1 can be controlled by only one program, either
the remote OR local program. If this information needs to pass to the other system,
use the ISC(s) to share logic to the other program. If the TVAVIRGW or
TVAVCOM-1 is defined in the local program, it will not send this information to the
remote program even if it is also defined in the remote program. In this situation,
ISC(s) must be utilized.
NOTE: In the diagram below, all 16 channels of the CEN-ISC(R) device are not
shown for clarity.

Wiring and Programming
In this description, a CNMSX-PRO is used as the host control system. It is also valid
to use a CEN-TVAV as a master unit to slave CEN-TVAV's. As shown below, an
RS-232 controlled VCR is physically wired to the CEN-TVAV. A macro exists that
has PLAY, STOP, FFWD, REW, PAUSE and RX$ on the inputs and PLAY-F,
STOP-F, FFWD-F, REW-F, PAUSE-F, and TX$ on the outputs. One way to code
this is to put the macro into the CNMSX-PRO program and hook up the TX$ and
RX$ to the TVAVCOM-1 port to control the VCR. It is recommended to put the
macro inside the CEN-TVAV, and hook the TX$ and RX$ up to the TVAVCOM-1
locally in the CEN-TVAV. The transport controls and feedback would be hooked up
to the ISC symbol.

on the control system that would activate signal VCR-PLAY. The signal would be
packaged for transport over Cresnet (containing the destination Cresnet ID, Slot 5,
and Port 1). The receiving CEN-TVAV would decode it, and send it to Slot 5, ISC 1,
Signal 1, which would activate the signal TVAV-VCR-PLAY which would in turn
put the VCR into Play. The return path for TVAV-VCR-PLAY-F is similar.

Internal Fuse Replacement
The circuitry of the CEN-TVAV is electrically protected by an internal fuse. If the
fuse blows (opens), no power is provided to the circuitry (the POWER OUT
receptacle remains energized). To replace the fuse, perform this procedure. The only
tools required are a grounding strap (or grounded work station) and a #1 Phillips tip
screwdriver.
WARNING: Use extra caution when working with 100-125VAC or 220-250VAC.
These voltages present an extreme hazard if inadvertent contact is made. Make sure
that the POWER IN line plug is disconnected from the power source before
performing this procedure.
CAUTION: The CEN-TVAV contains electro-static discharge (ESD) sensitive
devices. Perform the following procedure while wearing a grounding strap that is
properly grounded or on a grounded work station to avoid damaging the unit.
CAUTION: If disconnecting the CEN-TVAV from the power source, DO NOT pull
the POWER IN cord. Disconnect power by pulling the POWER IN plug from the
source.
NOTE: The internal fuse only protects the CEN-TVAV circuitry. This fuse DOES
NOT protect the POWER OUT receptacle.
1.
Disconnect the POWER IN plug from the power source.
NOTE: Although not required, it is recommended to label and disconnect each
cable (POWER IN line excluded) from the rear panel ports of the CEN-TVAV.

Glossary of Terms
CIP
Cresnet (over) Internet Protocol is a combination of Cresnet and Internet protocols.
On a regular Cresnet network (such as a CNMSX talking to a CT-3000 touchpanel)
the low-level protocol that handles communications (such as "Digital 1 Pressed on
Cresnet ID 05") is called Cresnet Protocol. The same protocol is used when speaking
eControl devices (CEN-COM, CEN-IO, eControl touchpanels, TPS touchpanels over
ethernet, etc.), except that it is packaged into the IP protocol that is used on the
Internet and referred to as Cresnet over Internet Protocol.
CTP
Crestron Terminal Protocol is the protocol used when the viewport establishes a
connection via REMOTE -> TCP/IP CONNECT and only an IP Address is given.
The port number is assumed to be 41795, which is the port number that CTP uses for
communications.
CNX Control System
A CNX control system is any Crestron control processor in the CNX product line.
Currently, these include the integrated control systems CNMSX-PRO and the
CNMSX-AV and modular control system CNRACKX/-DP.
Cresnet ID
Cresnet ID, a unique identity code ranging from 03 to FE (in hexadecimal), is given
to all devices that communicate using the Cresnet network protocol.
Default Router
A default router is a router that sends packets within the local network to destinations
outside of the local network, or receives them from outside and propagates them onto
the local network. It is also referred to as a Gateway.
Ethernet Hub
Inexpensive four to 16 port devices that provide a way to physically tap into an
existing Ethernet connection and expand the plugs available, but do not perform any
packet routing.
Gateway
See Default Router above.
IP Address
Internet protocol address is a unique number that is used to represent every single
computer in a network. All the computers on the Internet have a unique IP address.
The format of the IP address is four numbers separated by dots (e.g., 198.168.0.1).

IP ID
The IP ID is a two-digit hexadecimal number that is used to differentiate a given
device from a group of Ethernet devices in a control system with the same IP
address. Just as the Net ID is used to distinguish between identical devices within a
SIMPL Windows program, the IP address for a specific IP ID in the control system’s
IP table must be set to the IP address of the given device. Furthermore, the IP ID in
the given device’s static master table must be set to the IP address of the control
system.
IP Mask
An IP mask is a pattern of bits in IP address format (e.g. 255.255.255.0) which, when
"and"ed with your IP address, produces a network address. If an outgoing packet's
network address has the same network address as the source of the packet, it is sent
on the local network wire, to be received by a device on that local network.
Otherwise, it is sent to the gateway, to be routed to a device existing on another
network. The IP mask for any device should be assigned by whoever manages the
local network. An IP mask is also referred to as a Subnet Mask.
IP MTU
IP MTU is the maximum packet size that the device can transmit. It is not necessary
to change this value from 1500 for an all Ethernet network.
IP Table
An IP table lists IP IDs and their corresponding IP addresses. This table is
maintained inside each CNX control system, though it may be generated by a SIMPL
Windows program, or edited manually using the Viewport utility.
MAC Address
MAC address is a unique hardware address assigned to every network device in use.
The MAC address is assigned by Crestron at the factory and is never changed.
MASTER LIST
Master list is a list of Crestron Internet Protocol (CIP) enabled devices that will be
informed of any changes in the state of the controlled device. The device accepts
commands from the addresses of these masters.
Network Address
A network address is a pattern of bits in IP address format that is shared by all
network devices on a given local network. For example, network address
192.168.2.0 describes the local network where all devices have an IP address of
192.168.2.x, where x is any value from 1 to 254.
NMS TRAP CATCHER
NMS trap catcher is the address of a SNMP monitoring station that sends any alarm
messages that the monitored device wishes to send.
Router
Router is a communications device that routes data between networks.
Subnet Mask
See IP mask above.
TCP/IP
TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. It is quite simply
a standard set of protocols that govern the basic workings of the Internet that was
implemented in 1982.

Ethernet Enabled Programmable TV/AV Controller
Crestron CEN-TVAV
The TCP part is all about ensuring that data is transmitted correctly between two computers. If any errors occur these are
detected and the data is retransmitted. The data transmitted is split up into small portions called data packets. The IP part
of TCP/IP is how these data packets are moved from one point to another. Each computer on the Internet has a unique IP
address and the data packets are moved from the source to the destination through many different computers which is
controlled via TCP/IP. This protocol is used on the Internet and also by computers which are part of a LAN.
