statuses:




HEMC status: If the HEMC was found by the HEMC Control Application, the
displayed message is “HEMC Online” and the icon is green. If the HEMC was not
found by the HEMC Control Application, the displayed message is “HEMC
Unavailable” and the icon is red.
Source status: When there is no audio source, the message is “No Source” and
the icon is grey. When the audio source detection process is in one of many
transitory states, the proper message is displayed and the icon turns yellow.
When the HEMC has detected an audio source, the message is “Source
Detected” and the icon turns green. When the audio source is lost or there is an
error related to the audio source, the proper message is displayed and the icon
turns back to red.
Motion code status: If the HEMC has not yet identified any movie, the status
message is “No Motion” and the icon is grey. If the HEMC has identified a movie
but there is no motion code available, the status message changes to “Motion
Not Available” and the icon turns to yellow. If the HEMC has identified a movie
and there is a motion code available, the status message changes to “Motion
Available” and the icon turns to green.
Seat readiness: If the HEMC is not connected to a D-BOX motion chair, the
status message is “No Seat” and the icon is grey. If the HTMC is connected to at
least one D-BOX motion chair, the status message changes to “Seat(s) Ready”
and the icon turns to green. If at some point in time, all D-BOX motion chairs are
disconnected, the status message changes back to “No Seat” and the icon turns
to red.
The Media Info section displays the name of the identified movie, its poster image and
the time offset within the movie. The Seat Manager section displays, for each connected
D-BOX motion chair, the current motion and vibe levels (-20 to 0 dB), and whether it is
muted or not. By default, the motion value is set to 100 % or 0 dB, and the vibe value is
set to 75 % or -5 dB. When a chair is muted, the chair button on top of the motion and
vibe sliders is grey. When it is not muted, the chair button is orange. You can mute and
unmute the chair just by clicking the chair button. The motion and vibe you feel should
respectively stop and restart instantaneously. You can change the motion or vibe by
using the proper slider. You can also change both at the same time by activating the
chain icon and use the bigger slider handle.
The Screen Selector, which is displayed at the bottom of each screen, allows you to
change between the main screen, the settings screen, the motion code library screen,
and the configuration wizard screen, by clicking the proper name on the selector.
