NOTES
• Connect the 4 cables of a Quad/Quattro LNB to prevent alarm messages.
Some LNB’s require a lot of power to work properly. The unit is able to
deliver this power, only when the 4 polarities are connected.
• Do not change the bridges or load resistors!

3WEBGUI
MINIMAL SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
The WebGUI is supported by the following web browsers
(and newer versions of these browsers):
•Chrome 4
•Safari 3.1
•Firefox 3.6
•Explorer 8
•Opera 10.6
When using a different browser, we cannot guarantee a correct functioning of the
interface. The webGUI will indicate this with a warning message. This message will be
shown every time you browse to another menu item. Please install one of the above
browsers to avoid this.
LOGGING IN TO THE DEVICE
Connect the module to your PC.
The module will obtain an IP address from your PC. For this operation to work,
it is important that the PC is NOT set with a manual IP address!
Set the adapter to obtain an automatic IP address as explained in the following procedure (for Microsoft Windows 7®)
Navigate to the Control Panel (Start  Control Panel).
Enter the Network and Sharing Center and go to the Adapter Settings.
8
Right-click on the Local Area Connection and choose Properties.
Double click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) to enter the IP settings
of your adapter.
Make sure the ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’ checkbox is selected.
Click OK to save the settings. 9
Open your network browser, and surf to the name of the module. The name of the first
module is mod1, the name of the second module is mod2. You will now log in to the
module. After logging in, the Summary window appears.
status
‘LED’
On this screen, you see all the services, streamed by this module. The type of module,
the status and the language are visible on every screen. In the picture above, the status
‘LED’ is green, indicating that there are no alarms. The alarm status is shown when you
move over the status ‘LED’ with your mouse.
GENERAL CONFIGURATION
ABOUT
The ‘about’ tab gives some basic information about the device. Here, you can find
the serial number, the software version and release date. These are useful to check
if you have the latest software version installed on your device. New versions can
be found on the website. If you experience serious problems, you can download a
troubleshoot information file. Save this file, and mail it to us for analysis.
10
GLOBAL
Here you can configure the hostname of the module. This name can be used to access the module by simply typing it into your browser as the address and surf to it.
This is more convenient than using the IP address.
Just enter ‘http://hostname’ into your favorite browser (not case sensitive)
and press enter:
FACTORY RESET
All settings can be reset to default by means of a factory reset.
11
FIRMWARE UPGRADE
To upgrade the firmware of the device, click the Firmware upgrade menu item.
Click on the BROWSE button, and open the upgrade file. Click UPLOAD to send the file
to the device, this will install the new firmware on the device.
MODULE RESTART
Press this menu item to restart the module.
12
CONFIGURATION OF THE INPUT
Go to the LNB Settings menu to configure the 4 LNB inputs.
• Input: Sequence number of the input (also indicated on the front of the
actual module)
• Label: custom label for each input (e.g. V low, or ASTRA 19.2 V Low,…)
• Voltage: The LNB voltage to select the polarization
13V: Vertical polarization
18V: Horizontal polarization
• Tone: LNB tone to select low/high band
ON: high band
OFF: low band
• DiSEqC®: control of a DiSEqC® switch (A/B/C/D)
• Band: Satellite band
Ku-band: common in Europe
C-band: mostly used in the USA
• Ext. Voltage: Add 1V to the LNB voltage to compensate the cable losses
for long coaxial cables.
Press APPLY to confirm the parameters.
13
Go to the TUNER menu to configure the tuner frequency. The modules have 4
independent tuners, which can be assigned to every input, thanks to a built-in
multiswitch.
•
•
•
Input: One of the 4 labels configured in the previous step.
This selects the satellite input.
Frequency: Transponder frequency
Baud rate [kBaud]
Press APPLY to confirm the parameters. The module will now set the tuner to this
frequency. Wait until the correct parameters are loaded.
14
When the tuner is able to lock on the frequency, the list of services from this transponder will be shown.
The status of the tuner is shown.
• Status:
Green: tuner locked
Red: tuner unlocked

• Name: Service name
• SID: Service Identifier (unique ID for a service)
15
CONFIGURATION OF THE OUTPUT
Navigate to the MUX SETTINGS to configure the COFDM output parameters.
The 4 multiplexes are adjacent, and only the frequency of the first mux needs to be
configured, the others will automatically be set according to this frequency and the
bandwidth.
16
•
•
Mux: The multiplex number (1 to 4)
Frequency [kHz]: multiplex frequency in the VHF-UHF range:
47000 to 830000 kHz. When entering a frequency outside this frequency range, an error will be shown to the user.
• Level [dBm]: signal output level (range: -40 to -25 dBm)

OFF: the multiplex is not active
• Bandwidth: 6/7/8 MHz
• Spectral inversion:
ON: the frequency spectrum will be inverted
OFF: no frequency inversion
Press APPLY to save the settings to the module.
17
The TSID & LCN parameters are used to setup the logical channel numbering (channel sequence on the TV).
• TSID: Transport Stream Identifier
• LCN: Logical Channel Number
Navigate to the SERVICE ASSIGNMENT menu to setup the TV and radio services at
the output.
18
Press the
button to add a new service.
A list of available services (from all 4 tuners) will appear on the screen. Click on the
service to be added and wait until the service is loaded into the list. The list will be
refreshed and the added service will appear.
• LCN (Logical Channel Number): A logical channel number, also known as virtual channel, is a channel designation which differs from that of the actual channel (or range of frequencies) on which the signal travels.
• Name: Service name
• SID: Service Identifier
• On:
Check to enable the service at the output.
Uncheck to disable the service.
• CAM: Check to pass the service through the CAM card. Encoded
services will automatically pass through the CAM.
• Icons:
add a new program to the list of services
update the current service,
this icon will become active if some setting has changed
delete the service from the list, pressing this icon will remove
the program permanently (you can add it again)
NOTES
The bitrate bar shows the current bitrate of the selected multiplex.
The number of services per multiplex is restricted to 8. Depending on the
model, the module disposes of 4 multiplexes, each capable of transporting 8 programs. The maximum bitrate per MUX is 32 Mbps (depending on the
modulation parameters). It is however advisable to keep a buffer of 4 Mbps,
to prevent possible overflow (bitrate of services can fluctuate in time).
Select another multiplex by clicking on the tabs on top of the page.
19
CONFIGURATION OF THE MPEG SETTINGS
This menu item is only visible with modules having a DVB-S 2 input.
• Forward EPG tables: Forward Electronic Program Guide tables to the TV’s.
• CAS forwarding: Forward the Control Access System tables
(CAT, EMM, ECM) to descramble the programs with a set-top box.
CAT: Conditional Access Table
EMM: Entitlement Management Message
ECM: Entitlement Control Message
• Block others: Block private data.
• PID share: Enable sharing of the PES, PCR and ECM.
