Starting 1. Ensure there is enough space around the player for proper cooling. The space at each side should be no less than 10 cm. Ensure the RC has batteries installed. Connect the player to your TV and to other A/V equipment in an appropriate way. Use HDMI connection to get the best possible quality of video and audio. Make sure to switch off the player and all relevant A/V equipment before connecting them. Ensure your TV and other A/V equipment are configured to use proper inputs. Make sure to use HDMI OUT (not HDMI IN) connection to link your ZAPPITI PLAYER 4K to your TV. Switch on the player. The player will perform its initial loading procedure, which may take up to about 1 minute. During the loading procedure, "ZAPPITI PLAYER" logo is shown on the TV. If you do not see "ZAPPITI PLAYER" logo on the TV when you switch on the player, it may mean some problem with the connection between the player and the TV or that a wrong video input is chosen in the TV or A/V receiver/switch. In such a case, re­check the cables and the settings of the TV or A/V receiver/switch, or try to use different cables or a different way of connecting the player to the TV. 2.

To rip a Blu­ray or DVD disc containing a movie, open the tray and insert the desired disc. It will be ripped and dematerialized automatically. Once the rip operation is complete, the disc will be automatically ejected. Then you can rip another one. The movies are analyzed on startup of the Zappiti Media Center application. To force the identification, press ​
and select “​
” option. Warning! ​
TV Shows stored on DVD and Blu­ray discs are not supported by the NAS Zappiti Rip. However, concerts are supported. And if you own TV Shows episodes, you can add them via Ethernet in the dedicated folder named “TV SHOWS’” located in the Zappiti NAS. Your TV Shows episodes will be scanned by Zappiti Media Center and add in your collection. Music and Pictures If you own music or photo files, you can store them on the Zappiti NAS but they will be not added in your Zappiti Collection. However you’ll be able to play them from Zappiti Player 4K or from another device connected to your local network. Film not found or incorrectly identified When some discs are backed up, sometimes the name of the generated file does not match the title of the film. If no Zappiti user has previously analyzed this dematerialized disc file before you, Zappiti can not index it automatically. So you must manually index it. For this, on your Zappiti Player 4K (choose one if you have several), launch the app Zappiti, press the ​
button on the remote and select the "​
X to identifying​
" option (“X” is the number of not identified films). If a movie has been identified but does not match the good movie, press the ​
button on the remote and select "Identify again" instead of "X Identifier". Zappiti NAS RIP​

. 2. Use the search engine to find your movie in the movie database. 3. Then, on the movie page, locate the ID code in the URL. For instance, the URL of the movie "Metropolis" will be "​"​

Day after day, the Zappiti Database grows thanks to the Zappiti community and scans become more and more efficient and reliable. For instance, Metropolis.mkv can be associated to the 2001 Japanese animated movie version instead of the 1927 version from Fritz Lang. But if one single Zappiti user associates the right version, all the other users will benefit from it! The same system is used for technical specifications. So if the aspect ratio is manually modified by one user, all the Zappiti users will benefit from it. POWER OFF To turn OFF the Zappiti NAS, press the ​
