X-Digital Systems XDS PRO4-P QUICK START GUIDE
PLEASE REVIEW THIS GUIDE IN ITS ENTIRETY BEFORE INSTALLING
YOUR XDS RECEIVER. ALSO, FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE
CALLING SUPPORT.
• Make all satellite RF, data (LAN/WAN) and audio connections prior to
applying AC power to the XDS receiver.
Your receiver will NOT receive network programming, until you connect
your XDS receiver to the internet and Activate it per the instructions in
this document. Your XDS receiver MUST always be connected to the
internet 24/7/365.
• XDS urges stations to use an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for
the XDS receiver for equipment protection from power spikes or
brownouts. Also consider lightning protection if you are located in an
area susceptible to frequent lightning storms. Surge suppressors
alone often do not provide sufficient protection.
NOTE: Appendix A contains a front panel menu map that can help you
navigate through the XDS receiver settings and configuration.
1. MAKING THE CONNECTIONS
1.1 SATELLITE RF CONNECTION
Your XDS receiver is pre-tuned as specified in the attached “Network Configuration Data
Sheet”. Once the satellite RF is properly connected and you apply AC power, the XDS
receiver should automatically tune and lock to the network satellite carrier.
A. Connect the satellite RF to your downlink
Your new XDS receiver will include a parts kit that includes two 6-foot RG-6 cables
and an L-band splitter that allows DC power to pass through one port.
B. Verify the XDS receiver is tuned and locked to the network carrier

Once the satellite RF is properly connected, apply AC power to the receiver and
verify as follows:
•
If the SIGNAL LED is green then the receiver is locked to the carrier and
the LCD screen will display:
(Network)
EB ##.# AG ### (# = numerical value)
EB should be above 7 and AG should be between about 40 and 60 for
proper operation.
•
If the XDS receiver does not acquire the network carrier, the red FAULT LED
will illuminate steadily and the LCD screen will display:
(Network)
EB _ _._ AG ### (# = numerical value)
Verify proper RF connections, LNB power if required, and the XDS receiver
should automatically lock to the carrier.
To manually tune the XDS receiver to your network carrier:
At the main screen with the network logo, press the SET key, then the left or
right arrow keys to reach Setup. Press SET.
o Press the left or right arrow keys to reach Tuner. Press SET.
o Press the left or right arrow keys to reach Frequency. Press SET.
Check Network Data Sheet for Frequency
o Use the four arrow keys and the SET key to set the frequency to the value on
the Network Data Sheet packed with your receiver.
o Press the left or right arrow keys to reach Symbol Rate. Press SET.

Activation and Installation steps, including your internet connection,
must be completed or you will NOT receive the networks programming.
Your XDS receiver must ALWAYS be connected to the internet 24/7/365.
Important note: if multiple C-band satellite receivers are sharing a LNB, it
is highly recommended that an external LNB power supply be used. This
will prevent interruption of LNB power by any one of the station’s satellite
receivers rebooting, loosing power, etc.
1.2 INTERNET CONNECTION - REQUIRED
This new XDS receiver requires connection to an always-on internet pathway. The
internet pathway is used by the network to troubleshoot remotely, send audio or text
content to your receiver’s storage, send commercial playback schedules, retrieve asplayed logs of commercials inserted by the receiver, and more.
Your XDS receiver will be delivered with a 20-foot Category 5 data patch cord wired
“straight through” (not crossover) for connection to your network’s hub or switch.
A. Connect the XDS Receiver to your network
If you elect to place your XDS receiver in your local network “inside” your
firewall, connect your network cable to one of the receiver’s LAN ports. The
receiver is set by default to obtain a dynamic IP address, also called a “DHCP
address”, from your network’s DHCP server. If there is no DHCP server or you
elect to assign a static IP address, you can do it as follows:
Assigning a Static IP address to a LAN Port:
o

address.
Assigning a Static IP address to the WAN Port:
If you elect to connect your receiver in a firewall zone called a “DMZ”
(demilitarized zone) or ‘“Outside” the firewall where it can see the internet
directly, connect your network cable to the receiver’s WAN port. You must
assign a static IP WAN Address, WAN Subnet, and Gateway. Follow the
“Assigning a Static IP address to a LAN Port” instructions above to go to the
appropriate WAN menus and change settings as desired.
NOTE: If your local area network (LAN) requires the use of a proxy server,
please refer to the online user’s guide located at your affiliate’s website. Refer to

1.3 AUDIO OUTPUT CONNECTIONS
Once the XDS receiver is locked to the carrier you can verify audio functionality as
follows:
A. Verify audio reception
From the factory the XDS receiver headphone/speaker output and all the audio ports are
programmed to receive the network’s Test Channel, however the network’s receivers may
be shipped with current program authorizations active. To check the audio and
speaker/headphone outputs for audio you can still use the Test Channel.
Connect a set of headphones (or use front panel speaker) and verify you can hear
the Test Channel.
To manually program the XDS receiver spkr/headphone to output the Test Channel:
o

If you or your automation vendor has developed a program that can read text cues
directly, you may get the cue serial stream from pins 15 and 10 on the Relay A port on
your XDS receiver (see pinout above). The “Cue TxD” pin is RS-232 data with no flow
control or handshaking. Baud rate is set by default to 9600 bps 8N1.
2. VERIFY PROGRAMMING AND ACTIVATE
In the XDS system each program, not each channel, is permissioned and labeled for
station use. Therefore, instead of tuning to a channel to find a program, you will
schedule the programs to appear on each output port based on the stations that have
received authorization(s). You will need to review your schedule and activate your
receiver with your station’s programming.
You can edit and activate the schedule of the programs that you want to appear on
each audio output port of the XDS receiver through the network’s Affiliate website at
the internet URL provided on the Network Configuration Data Sheet packed with your
receiver.
