Control Connections Ethernet Connection

When you connect a computer to the AVT 200HD LAN port, it is vital that you use the correct Ethernet cables, and that they are properly terminated with the correct pinout. Ethernet links use Category (CAT) 5 or 5e unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cables, terminated with RJ-45 connectors. Ethernet cables are limited to a length of 328 feet (100 m).

NOTES:

• Do not use standard telephone cables. Telephone cables do not support Ethernet or Fast Ethernet.

• Do not stretch or bend the cables, because this can cause transmission errors.

A cable that is wired the same at both ends is called a "straight-through" cable, because no pin or pair assignments are swapped.

The cable that you use depends on your network speed. The tuner supports both 10 Mbps (10Base-T — Ethernet) and 100 Mbps (100Base-T — Fast Ethernet), half-duplex and full-duplex, Ethernet connections.

• 10Base-T Ethernet requires CAT 3 UTP or STP cable at minimum.

• 100Base-T Fast Ethernet requires CAT 5e UTP or STP cable at minimum.

The Ethernet cable must be properly terminated for your application as either a crossover or a straight-through cable.

Channels with long minor numbers

Most cable channel numbers do not exceed 5 digits including both major (preceding the decimal point) and minor (following the decimal point) numbers. However, some cable channels that do not have virtual channel numbers assigned may have 3- or 5-digit minor numbers, making those numbers too large to be displayed on the LED panel. For these numbers, the LED display shows only the last two digits of the minor number, followed by an additional dot. In the example below, the cable channel number is 128.25018. For this channel, the LED display shows the major number (128) and only the last two digits of the minor number (18). This number is followed by a red dot at the end, indicating that the displayed channel number is a partial one.

Remote Configuration and Control

This section describes the serial, Ethernet, and USB connections through which the Extron Simple Instruction Set (SIS) commands can be issued, and lists the commands that are available for configuring and controlling the AVT 200HD. Topics include: •

Serial Port

• •

USB Port Ethernet Port

• •

Using SIS Commands

Accessing the AVT 200HD Control Software

Serial Port

The AVT supports RS-232 serial communication protocol and can operate at 9600, 19200, 38400, or 115200 baud rates (see “

Configuring the serial port and IP parameters

” in the “Operation” section to configure this port using the front panel menus).

The 5-pole shared 3.5 mm captive screw connector labeled RS-232/IR on the rear panel can be connected to the serial port of a host device such as a computer running a utility such as the Extron DataViewer or HyperTerminal, an RS-232 capable PDA, or a control system (see

Wiring for RS-232 Control

” in the “Installation” section for information on connecting to

this port).

USB Port

SIS commands can also be sent through the USB Config port on the AVT front panel, using Extron DataViewer or another utility that accommodates USB. (see “

Connecting to the USB Port

” in the “Installation” section to set up communication via USB).

Ethernet Port

The RJ-45 connector on the rear panel can be connected to an Ethernet LAN or WAN to enable SIS control of the AVT. The tuner and the controlling device can communicate via Extron DataViewer or Telnet (a TCP socket using port 23). The Telnet port number can be

changed, if necessary, via SIS commands (see “

Connecting as a Telnet Client

” in the

“Reference Information” section for information on connecting via Telnet).

Ethernet Cable

The Ethernet cable must be properly terminated for your application as either a straight-

through cable or a crossover cable (see “

Ethernet Connection

” in the “Installation”

section for pin assignments for these cables).

AVT 200HD Tuner • Remote Configuration and Control 39

IP Address

To access the AVT 200HD via the Ethernet port, obtain the IP address of the tuner from your network administrator. If the IP address has been changed to an address comprised of words and characters, you can determine the actual numeric IP address using the ping (ICMP) utility (see “

IP Addressing

” in the “Reference Information” section for more information). If the IP address has not been changed, the factory-specified default is 192.168.254.254.

Establishing an Ethernet Connection

Establish a network connection to a AVT 200HD as follows:

1.

Open a TCP connection to port 23, using the IP address of the tuner. (A variety of methods are available for making this connection, including Telnet and utilities such as Extron DataViewer and HyperTerminal). The tuner responds with a copyright message that includes the date, the name of the product, firmware version, part number, and the current date and time.

NOTE:

If the tuner is not password-protected, the device is ready to accept SIS commands immediately after it sends the copyright message.

If the tuner is password-protected, a password prompt appears below the copyright message.

2. 3.

If the tuner is password protected, enter the appropriate administrator or user password.

If the password is accepted, the tuner responds with Login User or Login Administrator .

If the password is not accepted, the Password prompt reappears.

Connection Timeouts

The Ethernet link times out after a designated period of no communications. By default, this

timeout value is set to 5 minutes; however, the value can be changed (see the

Set current connection port timeout

command in the Command/Response Table for IP-Specific SIS

Commands, later in this section).

NOTE:

Extron recommends leaving the default timeout at 5 minutes and periodically issuing the Query (Q) command to keep the connection active. If there are long idle periods, Extron recommends disconnecting and reopening the connection when another command must be sent.

Using SIS Commands

SIS commands consist of one or more characters per command field. They do not require any special characters to begin or end the command character sequence. Each tuner response to an SIS command ends with a carriage return and a line feed (CR/LF = ] ), which signals the end of the response character string. A string is one or more characters.

Tuner-initiated Messages

When a local event such as a front panel operation occurs, the tuner responds by sending a message to the host. The tuner-initiated messages are listed below (underlined).

• •

Copyright message With an RS-232 connection:

(c) Copyright 2011, Extron Electronics AVT 200HD, Vx.xx, 60-770-01 ]

With an Ethernet connection:

(c) Copyright 2011, Extron Electronics, AVT 200HD, Vx.xx, 60-770-01 ] Ddd, DD Mmm YYYY HH:MM:SS ] The tuner initiates the copyright message when it is first powered on or when an IP is established. V

xx

is the firmware version number. With the Ethernet connection, a carriage return and the date and time are added to the copyright message. This message is not displayed with a USB connection.

] Password: • The tuner initiates the password message immediately after the copyright message when the controlling system is connected using TCP/IP or Telnet and the tuner is password protected. This message means that the tuner requires an administrator or user level password before it will respond to the commands entered via this link. The unit responds with one of the following messages, depending on the password that was entered: ] Login Administrator ] ] Login User ] The tuner initiates the login message when a correct administrator or user password has been entered. If the user and administrator passwords are the same, the tuner defaults to administrator privileges.

NOTE:

The Password prompt is redisplayed if an incorrect password is entered.

TunerReady ] After a unit reset or an output resolution change, the tuner sends this message to indicate the reset is complete.

V-chip Security for Parental Control

In addition to passwords for administrators and users, a V-chip personal identification number (PIN) is required to access and view parental control settings. With this PIN, you can view and change these settings when logged in at either the administrator or user level. You can set or change this password using SIS commands.

Tuner Error Responses

If the AVT is unable to perform an SIS command that it receives because the command is invalid or contains invalid parameters, the tuner returns an error response to the host. Response include: E01 — Invalid input number (too large) E10 — Invalid command E11 — Invalid preset number E12 — Invalid port number E13 — Invalid value (out of range) E14 — Command not available for this configuration E17 — System timed out E22 — Busy E24 — Privilege violation E25 — Device not present E26 — Maximum number of connections exceeded E27 — Invalid event number E28 — Bad filename or file not found E30 — Hardware failure (followed by a colon [:] and a descriptor number) E31 — Attempt to break port pass-through when it has not been set E32 — Incorrect V-chip password

NOTE:

User privileges extend to all view and read commands except reading the administrator password. Users can also perform the following functions: • Recalling presets • Muting outputs • Viewing V-chip settings (must enter the V-chip PIN)

Error Response References

14 = Commands that give an E14 (invalid command for this configuration) error if sent to a product whose current configuration does not support the command 24 = Commands that give an E24 (privilege violation) error if you are not logged on at administrator level 27 = Commands that may give an E27 (invalid event number) error 28 = Commands that may give an E28 (file not found) error

radio button directs the tuner to ignore any entered IP addresses and to obtain its IP address from a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server (if the network is DHCP capable). The

DHCP Off

radio button turns DHCP off. Contact your local system administrator for this setting.

IP Address field

The

IP Address

field contains the IP address of the connected AVT. This address is encoded in the tuner flash memory.

Valid IP addresses consist of four one-, two-, or three-digit numeric sub-fields separated by periods. Each field can be numbered from 000 through 255. Leading zeros, up to three digits total per field, are optional. Values of 256 and above are invalid.

The factory-installed default address is 192.168.254.254, but if this conflicts with other equipment at your installation, you can change the IP address to any valid value.

NOTE:

IP address changes can cause conflicts with other equipment. Only local system administrators should change IP addresses.

Gateway IP Address field

The

Gateway IP Address

field identifies the address of the gateway (to the mail server) to be used if the tuner and the mail server are not on the same subnet.

The gateway IP address has the same validity rules as the system IP address (see “

IP Address field

,” above).

Subnet Mask field

The

Subnet Mask

field is used to determine whether the tuner is on the same subnet as the mail server when you are using a subnet (see

” under “Ethernet

Connection” in the “Reference Information” section for more information).

The subnet mask address has the same validity rules as the system IP and gateway IP addresses.

MAC Address field

The MAC (media access control) address is a unique hardware address by which each individual AVT can be identified. It consists of six pairs of characters separated by hyphens. For all Extron products, the first three character pairs are 00-05-A6, followed by three more pairs unique to the individual device. The MAC address is hard coded in the tuner and cannot be changed.

Mounting the Tuner UL Guidelines for Rack Mounting

The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) guidelines pertain to the installation of the AVT into a rack: •

Elevated operating ambient temperature

or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consider installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer. — If the equipment is installed in a closed • • • •

Reduced air flow

— Install the equipment in the rack so that the amount of air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.

Mechanical loading

— Mount the equipment in the rack so that uneven mechanical loading does not create a hazardous condition.

Circuit overloading

— When connecting the equipment to the supply circuit, consider the effect that circuit overloading might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Consider equipment nameplate ratings when addressing this concern.

Reliable earthing (grounding)

— Maintain reliable grounding of rack-mounted equipment. Pay particular attention to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (such as the use of power strips).

Rack Mounting Procedure

The AVT matrix switchers are housed in rack-mountable metal enclosures with mounting flanges for standard 19-inch racks. If desired, rack mount the AVT 200HD as follows:

1.

Attach the included mounting brackets to the unit using eight of the machine screws provided with the mounting kit.

2.

Insert the tuner into the rack, aligning the holes in the mounting brackets with those in the rack. Use four provided machine screws to attach the brackets to the rack.

IP Addressing What is an IP Address?

An IP address is a 32-bit binary number that is used to identify each device on an Ethernet network. This number is usually represented by four decimal numbers (each in the range or 0 to 255) separated by dots, such as 198.123.34.240. This is called “dotted decimal notation.” An IP address is divided into two parts: • • Network identifier Host identifier Each address on a given network must have the same network identifier value but have a unique host identifier. As a result, there are different classes of addresses the define the range of valid addresses and which parts of the address are used for the network and host identifiers.

The most common IP address classes are:

Class Name

Class A Class B Class C

Valid Address Range

0.0.0.1 to 127.255.255.254

128.0.0.1 to 191.255.255.254

192.0.0.1 to 223.255.255.254

Identifier Arrangement

NNN.HHH.HHH.HHH

NNN.NNN.HHH.HHH

NNN.NNN.NNN.HHH

NNN

refers to the network identifier and

HHH

refers to the host identifier.

Choosing IP Addresses

If the computer and the AVT are directly connected or connected via their own independent network, follow the guidelines below for choosing the IP addresses.

However, if you intend to connect your computer and tuner to an existing network, you need to advise the network administrator and ask the administrator to allocate suitable IP addresses.

On an independent network, it is generally recommended that you use the Class C format (from 192.0.0.1 to 223.255.255.254).

There are two rules for choosing IP addresses: • • Network identifier must be the same for each IP address Host identifier must be unique for each address.

Applying these rules to Class C addresses, the first three decimal values of your IP address must all be the same while the last value is used to uniquely identify each device.

The following is an example of a

valid

Class C addressing scheme:

Device

AVT 200HD Control Software Computer AVT 200HD tuner

IP Address

208.132.180.41

208.132.180.42

NOTE:

The host identifiers (41, 42, and 43 in the above example) do not need to be sequential or in any particular order. However, it is recommended that you group the numbers for simplicity.

AVT 200HD Tuner • Reference Information

The following is an example of an

invalid

Class C addressing scheme:

Device

AVT 200HD Control Software Computer AVT 200HD tuner

IP Address

208.132.180.41

192.157.180.42

NOTE:

The above addresses are invalid because the network identifier for each address is not the same even though each IP address is unique.

You can perform a test from your computer to check that a device at a particular address is responding correctly or to determine its address (see “

Pinging for the IP Address

”).

Subnet Mask

The subnet mask is another 32-bit binary number that is used to “mask” certain bits of the IP address. This provides a method of extending the number of network options for a given IP address. It works by allowing part of the host identifier to be used as a subnet identifier.

It is important that you set the correct value for the subnet mask. The basic values depend on the class of IP address being used.

Class Name Subnet Mask

Class A Class B Class C 255.0.0.0

255.255.0.0

255.255.255.0

See “

Subnetting—A Primer

,” later in this section, for more information.

Pinging for the IP Address

To access the AVT 200HD via the Ethernet port, you need the tuner IP address. If the address has been changed to an address comprised of words and characters, the actual numeric IP address can be determined using the Ping utility. If the address has not been changed, the factory-specified default is 192.168.254.254.

Ping can also be used to test the Ethernet link to the AVT 200HD.

Telnet tips

It is not the intention of this guide to detail all of the operations and functionality of Telnet; however, some basic level of understanding is necessary for operating the AVT 200HD via Telnet.

Connecting to the AVT (Open command)

You connect to the AVT Plus tuner using the using the RS-232 link.

Open command. After your computer is connected to the tuner, you can enter the SIS commands the same as you would if you were Connect to the AVT as follows:

1.

At the Telnet prompt, enter open IP address .

If the tuner is not password protected

, no further prompts are displayed until you disconnect from the AVT 200HD.

2.

If the tuner is password protected

, Telnet displays the password prompt.

If necessary, enter the password at the password prompt.

Connection to the tuner via the Ethernet can be password protected. There are two levels of password protection: administrator and user. • • A person logged on as an administrator has full access to all AVT switching capabilities and editing functions. Users can closed captioning on and off, mute or unmute the output, select the channel or preset, and view all settings with the exception of passwords. By default, the tuner is delivered with both passwords set to empty.

When you are logged in, the tuner returns either Login Administrator or Login User . No further prompts are displayed until you disconnect from the AVT 200HD.

Escape character and Esc key

Many SIS commands include the keyboard key. Consequently, some confusion may exist between the Escape character and the key.

When Telnet is first started, the utility advises that the Escape character is “ Ctrl+] .” This means that the Telnet Escape character is a key combination: the key and the

<

]> key pressed simultaneously. Pressing these keys displays the Telnet prompt while leaving the connection to the AVT 200HD intact.

Local echo

Once your computer is connected to the AVT 200HD, by default Telnet does not display your keystrokes on the screen. SIS commands are entered blindly, and only the SIS responses are displayed on the screen. To command Telnet to show all keystrokes, enter set local_echo at the Telnet prompt before you open the connection to the tuner.

With local echo turned on, keystrokes and the tuner responses are displayed on the same line.

Example:

1*1!In1

Out1 All , where 1*1!

is the SIS command and In1 Out1 All is the response.

Note that all keystrokes are displayed, even those that should be masked, such as the password entry. For example, when entering a password with local echo turned on, you see a display such as a*d*m*i*n* , where admin is the keyed-in password and ***** is the masked response.

Local echo can be turned off by entering local echo off, enter the Escape unset local_echo sequence ( ).

at the Telnet prompt. If your computer is connected to the AVT 200HD, and you need to access the Telnet prompt to turn

AVT 200HD Tuner • Reference Information

Setting carriage return-line feed

Unless commanded otherwise, Telnet transmits a line feed character only (no carriage return) to the connected tuner when you press the key. This is the correct setting for SIS communication with the tuner. The Telnet set crlf command forces Telnet to transmit carriage return and line feed characters when is pressed; however, if crlf is set, the SIS link with the tuner does not function properly.

Closing the link to the tuner

To close the link to the tuner, access the Telnet prompt by entering the escape sequence ( ). At the Telnet prompt, enter close .

Help

For Telnet command definitions, enter ?

at the Telnet prompt.

Exiting Telnet (Quit command)

Exit the Telnet utility by entering quit at the Telnet prompt. If you are connected to the AVT 200HD, access the Telnet prompt by entering the Escape sequence ().

Subnetting — A Primer

A subnet is a

set of a

net

work — a set of IP devices that have portions of their IP addresses in common. It is not the purpose of this manual to describe TCP/IP protocol in detail. However, some understanding of TCP/IP subnetting is necessary in order to understand the interaction of the AVT 200HD and the mail server gateway. To understand subnetting at the level required to install and operate the AVT 200HD, you must understand the concepts of a gateway, local and remote devices, IP addresses and octets, and subnet

Gateways

The AVT 200HD can communicate with the e-mail server that it uses for e-mail notification directly (if they are on the same subnet), or the communication can be routed via a gateway (a computer that provides a link between different subnets).

Local and remote devices

The local and remote devices are defined from the point of view of the function being described. In this guide, subnetting is an issue when you are using the controlling computer

to set TCP/IP values in the AVT 200HD (see “

Establishing an Ethernet Connection

” in the “Remote Configuration and Control” section).

IP addresses and octets

Valid IP addresses consist of four 1-, 2-, or 3-digit numeric sub-fields, called “octets,” which are separated by dots (periods) (figure 65). Each octet can be numbered from 000 through 255. Leading zeros, up to three digits total per octet, are optional. Values of 256 and above are invalid.

Typical IP Address: 192.168.254.254

Octets

Figure 65. IP Address and Octets AVT 200HD Tuner • Reference Information

Subnet masks and octets

The subnet mask (figure 66) is used to determine whether the local and remote devices are on the same subnet or different subnets. The subnet mask consists of four numeric octets separated by dots. Each octet can be numbered from 000 through 255. Leading zeros, up to three digits total per octet, are optional. Each octet typically contains either 255 or 0. The octets determine whether or not the same octets of two IP addresses will be compared when determining if two devices are on the same subnet.

0 indicates that this octet will not be compared between two IP addresses.

Typical Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0

Octets 255 indicates that this octet will be compared between two IP addresses.

Figure 66. Subnet Mask and Octets

Determining whether devices are on the same subnet

To determine the subnet, the local device IP address is compared to the remote device IP address (see figure 67, below). The octets of each address are compared or not, depending on the value in the related subnet mask octet.

• • If a subnet mask octet contains the value 255, the related octets of the local device address and the remote device IP address are unmasked.

Unmasked octets are compared

(indicated by

?

in figure 67).

If the subnet mask octet contains the value 0, the related octets of the local device and remote device IP addresses are masked.

Masked octets are not compared

(indicated by

in figure 67).

If the unmasked octets of the two IP addresses
