- Connect your satellite dish to input LNB IN of DVB-S2 Tuner (1).
- If the receiver is equipped with second Tuner, connect output from corresponding antenna
dish to LNB IN (2) input (terrestrial antenna if it is DVB-T tuner or satellite antenna if it is
DVB-S2 tuner).
- Connect your TV to the receiver via SCART cable (or 3x cinch).
- Connect your home cinema (A/V receiver) via digital optical S/PDIF output or Cinch
outputs AUDIO L/R (only stereo audio).
- Connect Ethernet output to your home network – if possible to the router.

Operation:
AB IPBox 9900HD PVR with AB Enigma2 HD firmware
AB Enigma2 HD firmware was developed to enable simple and comfortable control of all
functions of your receiver.
Powering Up the receiver
a) Before connecting the power cord, connect to the receiver your other components and
antenna (see examples in previous chapter). Finally connect the power cord to a suitable wall
outlet.
b) Turn on your TV and select HDMI input in its menu (or different corresponding input
according to your real physical connection).
c) Press the POWER switch on the rear panel to turn on the power. Time indicator is
displayed.
Press the STANDBY button on the front panel or RC.
Starting the receiver and booting the system may last about 2 minutes; initial logo is displayed
during this process. Wait till the end of starting.
Initial Setting
If you do not see any picture on your TV, wait and check the message on the display. The
receiver automatically switches over all outputs. Press the OK button when you see
corresponding output on the display.
Outputs are continuously switched over in following order: Component – SCART – HDMI.
Select SCART (SD-PAL 50Hz) if you use SCART – SCART connection.
Select 1080i if you use Component connection.
Select 1080i if you use HDMI connection.
The refresh frequency menu appears after selection of HDMI. Set 50 or 60Hz according to
your TV. TV sets commonly used in Europe use 50 Hz – confirm the selection by pressing the
OK button.
If you accidentally set incorrect resolution and there is none or incorrect picture on your
screen you can repeat the setting up:
- Turn off the power of your IPBox by pressing the switch on the rear panel.
- Turn on the receiver and watch the display.
- Press and hold for a short while the MENU button on the front panel when IPBOX
9900 message appears on the display.
- Available resolutions are displayed (SD-PAL, 720p, 1080i-50Hz, 1080i-60Hz…)
- Use Right – Left arrow buttons to select corresponding resolution and press OK. New
booting with new settings starts.
- Wait until Installation wizard (guide) appears.
20
Screen test – “yes”, “no”
After setting up the video resolution you will be asked if you want to set up the picture
parameters. Select “no” to skip the menu or “yes” to adjust level of Brightness:
Follow the instructions
displayed on the screen. You

anytime later.
Press OK to confirm your
setting – menu for adjusting of
Contrast appears.

21
Basic setting installation menu (preinstalled channel list) appears on the screen. If none
setting is available, skip the menu otherwise choose desired one and press OK.
Note:
You can download Setting from the Internet or install it from your PC.
Configuration Mode
You can set up your antenna (outside dish) in this menu.
There is „not configured“ setting preset in tuner configuration menu.
Set desired configuration of tuner (tuners).
„Simple“:
Setting for using two LNB converters (or so called monoblock) connected DiSEqC switch ½ .
Basic setting:
Input 1 = A : Astra 19,2E.
Input 2 = B : Hotbird 13E.
Use cursor buttons to change satellites for A or B positions if your dish is aimed at different
satellites.
We recommend not changing the other settings. These are preset for the most common type of
LNB - Universal.
You can change configuration of tuners later on in the menu of the receiver.
If your receiver is equipped with two tuners, second tuner is in the menu marked as tuner B.
Second tuner can be also installed into your receiver additionally – type according to your
requests:
DVB - S2 satellite
DVB – T terrestrial

Conclusion
AB IPBox team consecutively improves and develops firmware for AB IPBox receivers.
We try to create new useful functions and expand capability of the IPBox receivers.
Thanks to open architecture of used operating system Linux, also anonymous users can
participate on the development.
Latest software and information can be found on our technical support web page
(http://download.abcom.sk/) or on other independent servers and forums.
Installation of a new firmware:
Enigma2 firmware for AB IPBox 99xx receivers contains following two files:
usb_rootfs.img
usb_kernel.img
There is a difference between firmware for AB IPBox 55HD, AB IPBox 99HD and
9900HD! They cannot be exchanged!
Make sure, that you are going to install a correct firmware into your IPBox.
1. Copy both files (do not change the names) from your PC into main (root) folder of
your USB flash disk (FAT32 or linux ext3. format).
2. Connect the USB disk with the files to USB connector on front or rear panel of your
receiver.
3. Turn off the power by using power switch on the rear panel of the receiver.
4. Wait approximately 3 secs and turn on the power back. Watch the display. When
message „loader…“appears on the display, immediately press and hold
„Standby“ button on front panel. Hold until “USB UPGREADE” message is
displayed. Release the button.
5. Installation process begins. Whole process lasts approximately 15 mins.
Do not turn off the receiver or disconnect the USB flash disk during installation!
Wait until the end of all installation!
The end of the installation is indicated by „Update complete“ message on LCD
display.
6. The IPBox will automatically restart newly installed image.
7. Wait until „Initial Setup Wizard“ menu is displayed. Follow the instructions at the
beginning of this manual.
We wish you good luck and plenty of great experiences with your AB IPBox receiver.
Your ABCOM team.
