Chapter 2 - System Setup
Find a suitable place for your D7, within a distance of 1.2m or less of your TV screen.
Connect the power supply and the power outlet.
Included with your D7 is a standard AV cable and a YPbPr cable.
Connect it to the A/V connector on the D7 and plug it into your TV.
For the video, use either S-Video (better quality) or if not available,
the yellow RCA connector. For analogue audio, use the white and
red RCA connectors. If your TV supports it, we recommend using
the component cable (YPbPr) for optimum video quality (up to 720p
or 1080i) instead of the standard AV composite cable.
For Dolby 5.1 surround and digital audio output, we recommend
using the SPDIF optical audio cable. Connect this to your amplifier
or sound system and change the settings for audio output on your
D7 to RAW format and 5.1 surround output.
For content streaming from your computer and the internet,
connect the LAN cable to an Ethernet switch or router. For the
wireless model (D7-WDMA), content streaming is possible
wirelessly using 802.11b or g.
However, for optimum performance and high definition content with
high bitrates, we recommend using the wired LAN connection
option instead of the wireless setup.
Having connected all cables, you are now ready to turn on the power and use the remote
control to turn on the device. Simultaneously, turn on your television set, and set up the
A/V channel. Wait a few seconds for the system to boot and you should see the D7
welcome screen.
Note: If everything is setup correctly but you can not see the welcome screen, press the
TV Mode button until you find the right video signal.

Options
[Screensaver] Set a time from 1-60 minutes before the screensaver turns on.
[Language] Select your preferred language for the on-screen menu, file browser encoding
and subtitles. You can also turn off the subtitles for your movies here. The default
language is English.
[Slideshow] Set the transition time and repeat mode for the slideshow presentation.
[Internet] Options for internet security used to browse the web. By default this is set to
SSL2, which will work fine for most purposes of the D7.
[Video] Select your video output and the preferred zoom level for watching movies. If you
accidentally saved the wrong video output and only see a blank screen, press the TV
Mode button until you see the screen again.
[Audio] By default, the audio is set to analogue stereo audio. If you use digital audio or
would like to change the default settings, change it here and save the new settings.

IP Config
By default, you can leave these settings and the D7 will automatically request the IP and
other information over the network. If the internet connection does not work or you would
like to change it, switch to manual mode.

subnet mask and the default gateway. For the DNS server, we recommend using two
different IP’s, preferable from a local and reliable provider.
[MAC Address] Displays hardware address to identify each unit
[IP Address] Choose an IP address that is different from other computers, printers and
various devices on your network but is part of the local network.
[Subnet Mask] The most common setting for home networks is 255.255.255.0.
[Primary DNS] The IP address of your Domain Name Server (DNS).
[Secondary DNS] The IP address of your backup Domain Name Server (DNS).
[Default Gateway] The IP address of the gateway or router on your local network.
[AOL] Server and URL setup for AOL subscriber services.
Note: To use direct internet access for IPTV, webradio, podcasts and other content, make
sure to enter a valid DNS server. Numbers seen in the image above are for reference only
and will be different to your settings.

Wireless Setup
To configure and use the wireless function, the optional antenna and mini PCI card have to
be installed first. Set your preferred network to wireless and save the settings. You will be
prompted to reboot. After restarting the system, go back to WIFI Setup, select your
wireless network and configure connection type and security key if required. Save the
settings and reboot once more.
[Preferred] Set to Wired if you use the Ethernet cable or set to Wireless if you use the
802.11b/g wireless antenna to connect to the network.
[Available Network] To use the wireless function, first set your preferred network to
wireless, save the settings and reboot. After restart, it will automatically display the
available access points (AP) and you can select your home network. To scan again for
available AP’s, select WIFI setup and click Enter.
[SSID] This field will be populated automatically once an available network has been
selected. If the SSID is hidden, enter the name of your SSID manually.
[Connection] Select your connection type. By default and for standard connections, this
will be set to Infrastructure (AP) but if required, you also set it to Ad-Hoc (peer-to-peer).
[Security] D7 supports WEP 64-bit or 128-bit encryption for additional security. Select the
WEP encryption used in your home network and enter the key or set it to OFF.
[Key] If you are using WEP encryption for your wireless network, enter the WEP key here,
otherwise leave this field empty. When 64-bit WEP is used, the WEP key should be 10
hexadecimal characters. If 128-bit WEP is used, the WEP key should be 26 hexadecimal
characters. A valid value for a hexadecimal character is 0 to 9 and A to F.

Time Setup
Setup for clock time with time zone and NTP server. If the NTP server is set and an
internet connection exists, the D7 can synchronise the time automatically.
The default value for the NTP server should work fine, so you only have to choose your
time zone, turn on daylight saving if required and save the settings.
Update ROM
Displays current firmware version and can be used to check for new releases and
upgrades for the D7.
If your D7 is not connected to the internet, you can download the latest firmware and save
it on a USB disk. Connect it to the USB port on your D7 and browse for the update file,
then manually update the firmware.

D7
User Guide
Chapter 3 – USB Host
The D7 has two USB connectors for external USB devices. You can connect up to two
USB mass storage devices with digital media content to display on your TV. For D7 to
recognise the external USB device it has to be mass storage class, and the file format
must be FAT12, FAT16 or FAT32. As an example, you may use a USB disk, an USB card
reader or a USB memory stick.
Simply plug in your USB device, turn on the power and you will be able to access the
device from the main screen. Browse the content, select the files you like to see and press
ENTER or PLAY to display them.
Note: USB hubs are not supported.
If there are more than 10 files in one folder, use the Volume +/- buttons to scroll up and
down the list quickly. To scroll up and down file by file, use the UP and DOWN buttons
instead. Press ENTER to play a single file or press PLAY to playback all the files in that
particular folder.

Chapter 4 – Network Mode
There are 3 different kinds of network modes:
• UPnP devices on local network
• Media server on PC
• Online premium content with direct internet access
UPnP devices
To access a Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) device, all you need to do is connect it to the
same local network as your D7. Turn on the UPnP enabled NAS or Windows Media
Connect as an example, then turn on the D7. On boot up, it will automatically connect to
the network and list any compatible devices. Once mounted, you can access it from the
main screen.
For UPnP servers such as Windows Media Connect or other applications, make sure your
firewall is setup properly; otherwise D7 will not recognise the device.
Media Server
To use this mode, you need to install the included “MyHome” application or Windows
Media Connect on your computer. Connect the computer to the same network as your D7,
start the application and you will be able to access your shared files from the computer
directly on your D7.
To connect the D7 to your computer without a local network, use a cross over Ethernet
cable.
To setup a new media server, go to the main screen. It should automatically detect new
servers but if not, click on the add button. You will have to enter the name of your MyHome
server and the IP address of that computer. Once it is setup, you can access the server
from the main screen.
For more details regarding the “MyHome” application and Windows Media Connect,
please refer to the PDF manual on the included CD.

FAQ
Q: My TV screen is blank and I can not see the D7 main screen!
A: Make sure the cables are connected firmly and the TV is set to the proper (A/V)
channel. Turn on the D7 and wait for about 10-20 seconds. If you still do not see anything,
press the TV Mode button on your remote control to change the video output until you see
the screen.
Q: I can not access the internet!
A: Make sure that the D7 is connected to your network and that your internet security is
setup properly. Press the SETUP key and confirm the IP configuration and DNS server. If
the automatic function does not work, switch to manual mode and enter the IP addresses
by yourself. To access the internet, the DNS server needs to be accurate and running.
Q: My file names and bookmarks are scrambled!
A: Go to the setup menu and change the encoding to your language.
