Introduction

Traditionally a facility pays for dozens or hundreds of cable/satellite channels but only has a small number of set top boxes, each locked on a single channel, and combined onto the cable plant. When a patient wants to view a channel that isn’t on the cable plant, the nurse has to go to the head end and change one of the receivers or tell the patient the channel is not available. In an effort to provide the full channel package to each patient, the set top box may be placed next to each TV in the patient area. Unfortunately, when the IR remote is used by one patient to change his channel, any TV nearby will also change.

The PDi Interface Module is designed to improve the patient experience interacting with a TV at a facility in which the channels come from a cable/satellite set top box. It allows direct access to all set top box functions via PDi TV keypad, IR remote, Pillow speaker and PDI-Qube

™ table radio. It gives patients access to every channel the facility is paying for, and allows patients to easily switch between cable/satellite, in-house DVD and rooftop antenna channels. The interface module can pay for itself by eliminating modulators, splitters and combiners in most environments. It removes the need to modulate signals for distribution (by using one coax or HDMI cable from each set top box to an associated TV). It offers customizable key mapping and works in retro-fit installations (in which each set top box is already modulated to a different channel and combined onto the cable plant). Be st of all it’s made in America!

Compatibility

The PDi interface module forms a communication bridge between a PDi TV and a set top box. Therefore, it has been designed to be compatible with as many models of TV’s and set top boxes as possible. All PDi TV’s larger than 10” built since 2008 are compatible. For earlier model

PDi TV’s look for a CCI port on the unit or contact PDi to verify.

As of this print, the following set top boxes have been tested to work with the PDi interface module. Contact PDi for compatibility with other models.

Mounting the Interface Module

The PDi interface module is designed to slide into an industry standard mini-mod chassis and is powered by the chass is’ power supply. Standard mini-mod rack mount chassis with power supply are suitable for the interface module. These include, but are not limited to:

Blonder Tongue MIRC-12V with MIPS-12C

Drake

®

RMM-12 with PSM121

Pico Macom

®

MPC-12

Holland HMR with HMPS

When it is more desirable to have the set top box and interface module located near the TV, the module may be used in a stand-alone configuration without the need for a mini-mod chassis. In this case the PDi PD106-747 power adapter (not included) should be used to power the interface module. Since the interface module uses very little energy, it has no special ventilation requirements.

Arm Mounted TV - RF Cable Installation

Unlike

AC powered wall mounted TV’s, PDi arm mounted television models receive their RF signal and TV power combined together along a connecting coax cable from an external power source. Special consideration must be used in handling the low voltage AC power found on the RF signal coax cable.

Two types of external power supplies are used with arm mounted televisions: individual style and central style. The individual power supply mounts near the TV injecting power from a nearby AC outlet onto the incoming coaxial cable. The central supply injects power onto 10 separate coax cables simultaneously and mounts in a wiring closet as far as 150 feet away from the TV

’s. Connection of the RF signal coax cable for each style of power supply is detailed below.

PDi Communication Systems, Inc. 40 Greenwood Lane Springboro, Ohio 45066 USA PH 1-800-628-9870 FX 937-743-5664

Document Number: PD196-244R7 PD295-002

Individual Style Power Supply - RF Cable Installation

Page 11 of 27

Signal connections for an arm mounted TV powered from an individual power supply requires a single coax cable no longer than 300 feet, connected at the Set Top

Box’s “Output to TV” connection.

Some set top boxes also allow for the connection of an external Antenna or other signal source via an “OFF-AIR IN” connection. Please consult your set top box installation instructions for details.

NOTE: The drawing below is representative of the typical set top box. Your box may vary in appearance.

Central Style PDI -772HE Power Supply - RF Cable Installation

Low voltage AC TV power is present on each central power supply TV coax cable. A PDi Power Passer (part number

PD167-003) is required to route the AC power on the coax cable around any externally connected device such as the

Satellite Box. A Power Passer is required for each TV/STB connection. For new installations, the use of a PDI-772HE-

IND instead of PDI-772-HE will eliminate the need for the power passers.

NOTE: The PD167-003 Power Passer is an optional device NOT supplied with the interface module and is only required for centrally powered arm mounted televisions. Please contact your PDi distributor to order this device.

1. Remove power from the TV at the central power supply.

2. Connect a coaxial cable from the STB

“OUT TO TV” to the Power Passer’s “RF

IN FROM EXTERNAL DEVICE”.

3. Locate the coaxial cable from the central power supply. Connect this cable to

“FROM POWER SUPPLY”.

4. Connect the coaxial cable from the TV to

“COMBINED SIGNAL TO TV.” The TV coax should be limited to 150’ to accommodate the central power supply coax length limitations.

5. Connect an Optional Secondary RF signal coaxial cable from the Power

Passer’s “RF OUT TO EXTERNAL

DEVICE” to the Set Top Box “OFF-AIR

IN”. This connection is only necessary if you wish to view TV signals that are already present on your system in addition to Set Top Box signals.

Central Style PDI-772HE-IND Power Supply - RF Cable Installation

Page 12 of 27

Low voltage AC TV power is present on each central power supply TV RF out port. Each RF In port is designed to be connected to a separate RF source with minimal loss and high isolation.

1. Remove power from the TV at the central power supply.

2. Connect a coaxial cable from the Set Top Box

“OUT TO TV” to one of the 10 “RF IN” ports on the PDI-772HE-IND.

3. Connect the coaxial cable from the

TV to “RF OUT”. The TV coax should be limited to 150’ to accommodate the central power supply coax length limitations.

4. Connect an Optional Secondary RF signal coaxial cable to the Set Top

Box “OFF-AIR IN”. This connection is only necessary if you wish to view TV signals that are already present on your system in addition to Set Top Box signals.

Signal strength entering the Set Top Box should be +3dBmV to +10dBmV.

TV Setup

To establish communication to interface module the CCI port on the TV must be active and you must have a PDi programming remote PD108-420 (not included). Follow the steps below:

1.

Press SETUP to enter the TV’s setup menu.

2. F rom the setup menu select “Features”.

3.

If the “Standby Power” setting shows in this menu, change it to “Normal”. Some TV’s do not have this setting so this step can be ignored. Other TV’s may operate the interface module on any “Standby Power” setting. This can be determined by trying it or contacting PDi.

4. From the initial setup menu, select “Channels”.

5.

Change the “Pro:idiom” option to “MTI Port”. Some TV’s do not have this setting so this step can be ignored.

6.

From the initial setup menu, select “Sources”. Set each item as detailed below.

The TV Source Setup must properly reflect the actual connections to the TV. Incorrect settings will result in loss of programming or the addition of blank signal sources. In most installations, both cable/satellite and off-air programming is delivered over RF so the “TV Tuner” must be enabled. If the cable/satellite channels are delivered over an alternate method such as HDMI, then that source must be enabled. All unused sources should be disabled.

Keypad Programming (Mapping) Instructions

The Set Top Box (STB) can be controlled remotely by any of the following that incorporate a keypad: PDi-Qube

™, Pillow

Speaker, TV’s Keypad (Arm Mounted TV’s), or Handheld Remote Control. In other words, any control device that incorporates a keypad capable of controlling the TV can also control the Set Top Box.

Keypad Programming or Mapping involves assigning key functions to the corresponding Set Top Box (STB) functions. It is common practice to designate a control button to activate the STB’s Channel “Guide” feature. This feature allows for quicker selection o f satellite channels. Some common control buttons used for “Guide” are listed below. Your installation may vary depending upon the control device’s availability of these particular buttons.

Control Button STB Function

Menu Guide

(-) Guide

1. Enter the Interface Module Setup Menu (See Interface Module Setup Menus earlier in this manual).

2. Select menu pages 1 through 5.

3.

For each “TV Key” on the left column, set the matching “STB Key” on the right column to the desired STB function.

Programming for Off-Air Non-Satellite Channels Using Off-Air RF Pass-Thru

The Set Top Box (STB) can be remotely turned off, which allows any signal connected to the “OFF-AIR” input of the STB to be active and then viewed downstream by the TV. The Off-Air signal could be a DVD player for an in-house movie channel, an externally connected antenna for local over-the-air channels, or cable TV channels. See pages 7 or 8 for details regarding connection of an Off-Air signal.

NOTE: Off-Air signals are optional and may not be available at the facility. Some Set Top Boxes do not have off air pass through. In either case this instruction section may be skipped.

To view an Off-Air signal, the patient must turn Off the STB. A control key must be assigned to perform this function. The control key should NOT be the TV’s POWER button as it is used to power the TV On and Off. Instead, another key must be selected. Below are some suggestions for STB “Power” keys that might be utilized on some common control devices.

An Example for Off-Air RF Pass-Thru

A facility has an outside antenna that contains several local TV channels that they wish to provide to their patients for viewing in addition to Satellite TV channels.

The facility is equipped with the PDI-P15X arm mounted television powered remotely from a central style power supply.

The Off-Air antenna signal is connected to the input of the central power supply and the STB is connected using the

Optional Secondary RF Coax cable as shown on pages 8 and 9.

For this configuration, the yellow (Menu) button on the TV’s keypad is chosen to Power the STB on and off by changing the mapping of the TV “Menu” key to “Power”.

1. Enter the Interface Module Setup Menu (see Interface

Module Setup Menus earlier in this manual)

2. Select menu “Interface Module SETUP 6/6”.

3.

Set “STB Signal Input” to match the connection to the

STB. This is usually Tuner, but may be “HDMI” or

“Component” for high definition STB’s.

4.

If “STB Signal Input” is “Tuner” then set the “STB Channel” to match the STB’s modulated RF output. The illustration depicts the channel as number 3 in this example.

5. Exit setup. Verify the STB signal is now displayed on the television.

Resolution

Depending on the location of the Set Top Box, the Set Top Box may experience interference from IR Remotes or from other IR Emitters on Set

Top Boxes in the same area.

The IR Emitter supplied with the PD295-002 allows the pass through of other external IR Signals through its outward facing side. This IR Emitter also sends the IR Signal out the side opposite the cable entry, besides sending the signal through the side mounted to the Set Top Box. If there is a possibility that the IR Emitter can be exposed to the IR from remotes and other Set Top Boxes in the area, it is recommended that the IR Emitter be mounted to the Set Top Box and covered with tape that blocks IR.

It is possible that the TV and the Set Top Box get out of Power ON/OFF synchronization. To correct this problem, turn both the TV OFF and Set

Top Box OFF. Let the TV control the STB by just turning the TV ON.

Verify the Interface Module “STB Model” parameter is set properly. See

“Programming the IR Code Set”, page 17.

Verify the Interface Module

“STB Signal Input” parameter is set to the source input (such as TV RF, HDMI 1, etc.) that matches the set top box’s connection to the TV. See

“Programming the STB Signal Input Type”, page

20.

Verify the TV’s source input is wired to the STB that the TV is controlling.

The Interface Module Setup Menu provides a diagnostic tool to help determine if the TV is connected to the expected STB. On page 6 of the

Interface Module

Setup Menu, go to “Flash Power LED”. If “Flash Power

LED” is turned ON, the “Power LED” indicator on the Interface Module controlled by that TV will flash. Verify the Interface Module with the flashing

LED is connected to the Set Top Box that sends its output to the same TV.

Dish receivers must be set to Primary Remote Address #1 for proper operation.

Verify the remote address setting by pressing “System Info” on the Dish receiver's front panel. The system Information screen displays on the TV showing the Primary Remote Address. If the value is not 1, then follow these steps to reset it.

1. Turn off all other nearby Dish receivers.

2. Aim the Dish IR remote at the powered on receiver.

3. Press and hold SAT on the Dish IR remote control, for about three seconds, until all mode buttons light up. Release SAT.

4. Use the NUMBER PAD on the Dish remote to enter the number 1.

5. Press POUND(#). If the address was entered correctly, SAT will flash three times.

6. Press RECORD on the Dish remote. The TV screen should update.

Make sure the Primary Remote Address shown on the System

Information screen is now '1'.

7. Press SELECT to remove the System Information screen.
