About This Manual
This manual was composed in Microsoft Word 97, and is configured to be used most easily as an
electronic document. It can be printed and used as a hard copy, but some features, such as links,
are not accessible in that mode.
If viewing the electronic version, we recommend you safeguard the original version to avoid the
effects of somehow altering your master copy.
1. Cross-references
Cross-references are internally linked for easy access. If you are viewing the electronic version
of this manual, and see text that is blue and underlined, such as APPENDIX A you can “click”
your mouse on that text and “hyperlink” to that section.
When you are ready to return to the previous section, “click” on the web toolbar “back” arrow
and return. The web toolbar should appear automatically when you use a link, but if it does not
you can invoke it from Toolbars on the View menu.
Because many users will print the manual, we have also included the page numbers for most
links.
2. Table of contents
You can also link from the Table of Contents to any listed page. This also applies to the List of
Tables and List of Illustrations. Just “click” on the page number for any section, table, etc., you
want to move to. Returning to the Table of Contents works just as in Number 1 above.
3. Other Viewing Methods
In the electronic Word version, there are several methods of moving about a document.
“Clicking” Document Map or Online Layout on the View menu will open a window showing the
document outline. This is similar to the Table of Contents, and will allow you to move about the
document by “clicking” on a section number. It has the advantage of not going away when you
move to another section. It also has the disadvantage of taking up screen space when it is open.
Another way to better view the document is to “click” on the “Up arrow” icon on the Web
Toolbar. This will minimize most of the other toolbars, allowing you to use more of the screen
for viewing the manual.
See Section 1.9 (Page 14) for more information on manual feedback.

SECTION 1
GENERAL INFORMATION
1.1
GENERAL
The purpose of this manual is to describe the proper installation and operation of the Wegener
Communications UNITY4422 MPEG Video Decoder.
1.2
INTRODUCTION
The UNITY 4422 unit is an MPEG decoder designed to receive its input from a DVB-ASI input
source. These inputs include the new 4:2:0 and 4:2:2 chroma formats, as well as the traditional
4:3 and new 16:9 aspect ratios. The input is a DVB-compliant signal, which is processed to
produce NTSC or PAL video, audio, e-mail (front panel text) output, and electronic-relay cueing
signals. The unit is fully network-controlled via the Wegener Communications, Inc. (WCI)
COMPEL control system.
The optional decryption feature allows for use of WCI COMPEL Conditional Access
(COMPEL-CA™). Authorization of each unit is under network control.
In addition to network control, the unit features a front-panel LCD interface, for unit control and
viewing local status information. In addition, limited control of the unit (if allowed by the
COMPEL network) may be implemented via serial port, connecting either to a local terminal
or (via phone modem) to a remote terminal.
The UNITY4422 normally has expansion ports for two add-in modules. This unit, the DVBASI Input model, has the DVB-ASI Input board mounted as Module 1. Therefore, there is only
room for one additional add-in module. Contact the Wegener Sales Department about available
options.
1.3
UNPACKING AND INSPECTION
Carefully unpack the unit and inspect it for obvious signs of physical damage that might have
occurred during shipment. Any damage claims must be reported to the carrier immediately. Be
sure to check the package contents carefully for important documents and materials.
1.4
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
To avoid damage to this and other equipment, or personal injury, the following items should be
strictly observed.
1.4.1
Elevated Operating Ambient
If equipment is installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient of the
rack may be greater than the room ambient. Therefore, considerations should be given to the
TMRA, or Temperature inside the Mounting Rack, and not just inside the room.
Page 11 of 72
UTY4422-002
Page 12
1.4.2
Reduced Air Flow
Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of airflow required for safe
operation of the equipment is not compromised.
1.4.3
Mechanical Loading
Mounting of equipment in a rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not achieved due
to uneven loading.
1.4.4
Circuit Overloading
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the
effect that overloading of circuits could have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used when addressing this
concern.
1.4.5
Reliable Earthing
Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained. Particular attention should
be given to supply connections other than direct connection to the Branch (use of power strips).
1.5
PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT
See specific statements in Section 1.4 (Page 11).
Mount the UNITY4422 unit in a standard EIA 19-inch equipment rack located in a clean, dry
environment, and do not place unsupported equipment on the unit. Make sure that total rack
power consumption does not exceed the limits of the AC branch circuit, and that a reliable earth
safety ground is maintained. The unit will meet the full 10-40oC operating temperature
specification only if adequate clearance around vent-holes is provided. The units may be
arranged without empty space between them, as long as enough rack ventilation is provided to
prevent severe heat buildup. Please note the maximum per-unit power dissipation of 45 watts.
1.6
SECURITY LABELS
The UNITY4422 uses security labels over some of the screws. There are no user-serviceable
components within the unit, and tampering with the security labels or opening the units will void
your warranty. If you have questions, contact Wegener's customer service department at the
address, phone, or fax numbers listed in Section 1.8 (Page 13).
* * * WARNING * * *
When connecting cables to “F” type connectors apply a force of no more than 12 inch
lb. (Finger tight). Avoid connecting adapters directly to “F” type connectors. Use at
minimum a 1-foot flexible extension cable between “F” type connectors and adapters.

SECTION 2
SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
2.1
UNIT OVERVIEW
The UNITY 4422 features several separate hardware components: The DC switching power
supply, the main motherboard, a DVB-ASI input card, front-panel keypad controller card, and a
front-panel LCD assembly. The DC switching power supply provides all internal regulated DC
power. The unit’s input is to the ASI card, mounted as Module 1. That card has two BNC input
connectors and an internal (inside the chassis) connector that connects its output to the
motherboard. This output data stream feeds the main motherboard, which demultiplexes the
selected video and audio elemental streams. These are, in turn, de-compressed and converted
back to the original analog source material for output. Meanwhile, the user may query the unit
using the front-panel keypad for input and the LCD to read the returned status information.
2.2
BLOCK DIAGRAM DISCUSSION
Refer to Figure 1 (Page 16) for the following discussion.
The DVB-compliant receiver card detects the incoming 270 Mbit ASI carrier. The MPEG sync
is detected. The decoded byte stream is output to the main board.
The input to the main board is the multiplexed MPEG2 transport stream. The resulting “clear”
transport stream is then fed to the transport demultiplexer. This device selects the component
elemental stream for selected video and audio programs, as well as the network control data
streams. The selected video data is passed to an MPEG video decoder, which converts the
signal to linear digital video. This is then converted to analog NTSC/PAL in a final encoder for
output. Meanwhile, the selected MPEG compressed audio stream is also routed to a combined
decompression and digital-to-analog converter (DAC) IC. The output is one stereo pair of audio
signals (L and R) on Channel 1 at the back panel. In addition to the first stereo pair, a digital
signal processor monitors and demultiplexes another selected digital audio stream, which is also
decoded and output as the stereo pair on Channel 2 at the back panel.

The main host processor runs the control system on the main board. This processor interfaces
with the COMPEL™ network as well as local users and then controls and monitors the unit’s
operations. To do its job, this processor accesses the control data streams recovered from the
main transport demultiplexer. One of these may be a Conditional Access data stream (if used).
The main processor sends this data to a separate secure microprocessor, which looks to see if its
unit serial number is authorized to receive the broadcast signal and, if so, recovers the secret
keys for decrypting the incoming encrypted transport stream. Meanwhile, the main host
processor also communicates with several peripheral devices. It manages the data passed
to/from the front-panel keypad controller (which lights status LED's, manages an LCD display,
and reads back keypresses). It manages two serial ports that allow for use of a terminal, modem,
printer, or auxiliary data device as well as the display and printing of local e-mail. Additionally,
it controls the L-band receiver daughtercard and any installed Options Modules.
For maximum flexibility, and to make value-added upgrades easily possible, the operating unit
software is stored in flash memory and may be dynamically replaced via the local serial port or
from the satellite network control channel.
2.3
SPECIFICATIONS
The UNITY4422 can be factory-configured for a tuner-QPSK Demodulator input, or for a DVBASI Input. The difference is whether the tuner card or DVB card is installed. The unit can autodetect whether a tuner or DVB input card is installed in order to do field troubleshooting, but if a
field modification is being done the boot code will need to be changed. Also, when the boot
code is changed the app and dsp codes will need to be loaded into the unit. This allows one
software package to be installed in a number of different unit configurations, and simplifies
updating that software.
2.3.1
Transport DEMUX
The transport demux is used to extract the desired video and audio streams from the multiplexed
data stream.
2.3.2
System Processor
The main system processor is an extended architecture processor, and uses flash memory for
microcode storage with download capability via either terminal or satellite channel.
The unit also has an MPEG2 video processor ASIC, and an audio processor ASIC.
2.3.3
Auxiliary Data Processing
An asynchronous user-data stream embedded in the transport stream may be routed to SERIAL 1
or SERIAL 2 ports under user or network control.

Option Modules for Expansion Ports
The unit has one expansion slot, which can be used as a high-speed or low-speed slot. Using it
as a high-speed expansion port provides the transport layer multiplexed stream while using it as
a low-speed expansion port provides the filtered packet data. An I2C bus provides control for
option modules. The specifications for individual modules are included in documentation for the
module.
The RF Switch is not an option when the DVB-ASI Input Card is installed.
2.3.9
AC Power
The unit features a universal-input power supply. AC line power is fed into a standard IEC jack.
The nominal inputs are 115 or 230 VAC ± 10% at 50-60 Hz ± 2%. The total AC current
consumption with max LNB DC load is 0.8A at 115 VAC, and 0.5A at 230 VAC. See Table 1
(Page 13).

2.3.10
LNB DC Power
The unit may feed DC power to an external antenna-mounted LNB using either the RF-In
connector’s center-pin or a terminal on the rear-panel terminal strip (with an external DC power
inserter). The nominal voltage supplied is +17 to +24 VDC, while the maximum load current is
250 mA. The output is short-circuit protected by a thermal fuse. An internal jumper (J27) is
used to enable/disable DC power on the RF-In center-pin. Once that jumper has been set, the
LNB power can be turned on via the front panel menu.
LNB DC Power is available in all audio and video modes.

Balanced Audio Outputs
There are two audio channel outputs on the rear panel. Each Channel (Ch1 & Ch2) has a right
and left pair. Each of these pairs is a balanced, low-impedance audio output. These are accessed
through DB-9 connectors, which plug through the rear panel into the main PWB.
Please note that audio should be terminated with 600-ohm loads for correct output levels.
2.5.2
FCC-Mandated Suppression of Radiated Emissions
In order to comply with the requirements of FCC Part 15 Subpart B, Class A
emissions, please read the following instructions on the protection of all output
wiring and cabling:
For each alarm or user-controlled relay output THAT IS USED, a single ferrite
core must be used for EMI emission suppression. The ferrite cores are supplied
in the shipping container along with the UNITY4422 unit. Details on assembly of
the ferrite cores on the wiring are shown in Figure 2. Note that each pair of wires
must pass through the core twice. Be sure that this is done as close to the
removable screw-terminal strip as possible. If minimal slack is used in the outer
“turn,” the ferrite core should be properly restrained by the wiring alone.
In addition to the above precautions for the wiring to the screw-terminal strips,
the user is cautioned to use only high-quality shielded cabling for the SERIAL 1
and SERIAL 2 connectors.

2.5.3
Alarm Relay and Addressable Contact Closures
The rear panel has an alarm relay and two solid-state contact closures addressable from the
COMPEL™ uplink computer. This relay’s “alarm” conditions are the same as the front-panel
ALARM LED. The alarm relay is factory-set so that an alarm condition or the loss of unit power
will cause the rear panel alarm outputs to short together (alarm relay closed). Ratings for the
alarm relay and network-controlled closures are 100 mA at 30 VDC.
The two contact closures are controlled via the COMPEL command stream from the uplink.
See the COMPEL™ Manual for the commands and structure for the relay closures.

EXPANSION CARD CONFIGURATION
The purpose of this section is to detail the jumper settings and labeling instructions for the Unity
Expansion Cards.
2.6.1
Balanced Audio Expansion Card
2.6.1.1 Audio Card Jumper Configuration
Jumper settings – Dotted and Non-dotted. The headers used here have 3 pins, so a jumper
connecting 2 of these pins can connect pins 1 & 2 or pins 2 & 3. The “Normal” position of this
jumper is marked by a dot on the silkscreen near either pin 1 or pin 3.
Dotted Position - Jumpering pin 2, the center pin, to the pin nearest the dot.
Non-Dotted Position - Jumpering pin 2 to the pin furthest from the dot.
Installing an audio expansion card enables audio channels 3 and 4. You should set jumpers J2,
J3, J4, J6, J7, and J8 on this Audio Card to the “dotted” position.
Only one audio expansion card can be installed in this unit, and must be installed in the “Module
2” position.
2.6.1.2 Audio Card Label Instructions
When a balanced audio expansion card is installed, channels 3 and 4 are used. Set the jumpers
on that card to the “dotted” position, and label the Audio Card Bracket as [CH4 CH3]. As
these cards may be used in several applications, and the channel designations may be different
on each, the outputs must be labeled for each application. To label it:
1. Peel the [CH4
CH3] label from the backing.
2. Press the label onto the rear of the Audio Card Bracket, within the blank rectangle
provided, or cover existing silkscreen text.
2.6.2
Sync or ASI Output Data Card Jumper Configuration
When you install one SYNC or ASI expansion card, set jumper J9 on that card to the “dotted”
position. See Section 2.6.1 (above) for details on “Dotted” and “Non-dotted” jumper positions.

SECTION 3
OPERATION
3.1
MODES OF OPERATION
3.1.1
Power Up
At power up, the unit does a quick checksum test on the EEPROM. When the test passes, the
unit then initializes various devices and configures itself according to the EEPROM settings. It
then waits for the receiver board to complete its boot-up. When the receiver board boots up, the
unit sends a tune request to the receiver board and the Welcome Banner to the serial port. The
unit then enters alarm mode until all of the alarm conditions are cleared. Total boot-up time is
approximately 25 seconds, but may vary somewhat.
Also, while in power up mode, each of the Unity 4422’s LED's will FLASH. See Table 11
(Page 30).
3.1.2
Boot Fail
If any of the boot fail conditions occur, the unit will enter “boot fail” mode. While in this mode,
the unit is essentially dead. All audio and video is muted, the alarm relay is closed, the generalpurpose relays are all open, and the unit does not attempt carrier acquisitions, etc.
3.1.3
Alarm, Warning, & Normal
See Sections 3.2.7 (Page 31) and 3.2.8 (Page 31) for a complete list of alarm/warning conditions
and for information on the LED's during these modes. The overall behavior of the unit is very
similar for any of these modes, and the following is a list of their differences:
•
Alarm and User Relays. See Section 3.3 (Page 32) for details.
•
Video, if used, is alarm frozen if No MPEG Data for less than 5 seconds, No Video for less
than five seconds, or in fade mode for less than 10 seconds.
•
Video is muted for all alarm conditions except Alarming Eb/No.
•
Audio is muted for all alarm conditions except Alarming Eb/No and No Video Data.
•
LED's are unique for each of these modes.

3.3
RELAYS
This unit supports 1 alarm relay and 2 solid state user relays. The user relays are controlled via
COMPEL™ and the modem/terminal interface.
Note that the alarm relay is de-energized when the unit’s power is off and the relay outputs
are shorted together.
3.4
PROGRAM SELECTION
Programs may be selected by network control and (if allowed by the network) by local user. A
multiplexed MPEG transport stream may support some number of separate programs. Each
program has a single video and some number of associated audio data streams associated with it
in the main transport stream. The programs are designated with a number, but if none is supplied
by the selection command (e.g. the ‘*’ designation) the lowest in number order will be selected
by the unit.
3.5
AUDIO HANDLING
The selected program (see Section 3.4, Page 32) has a number of separate compressed-audio data
streams associated with it. These are assigned 3-letter mnemonic designations. Any of these
may be routed to either the Ch1 or Ch2 stereo outputs on the back of the unit, but not both at the
same time. The selected stream is a stereo or dual-mono signal. It may be routed to the L and R
connections in a specific relationship to the original audio connections at the uplink MPEG
encoder unit:

3.6
SOURCES OF CONTROL
The unit can be controlled via COMPEL™, terminal, modem, or Display / push buttons. Each
of these methods of control is explained in the following sections, but you should see the
COMPEL manual for a complete explanation of the COMPEL system.
3.6.1
Local Control Enabled/Disabled
In some instances Local Control of a unit may be restricted by Network Control at the Uplink.
Disabling the local control function allows the user to view status and settings but does not allow
for changes to most of those settings. For a concise view of which controls are enabled and
which are disabled, see Table 20 (Page 39). When Local Control is disabled, the terminal
commands designated “Control Commands” are disabled, as are the front panel menus which
have the same effects as those terminal commands. To see which terminal commands are
disabled see Section A.2 (Page 44).
3.6.2
COMPEL™
The COMPEL command stream from the uplink is usually the unit’s primary source of control.
This asynchronous stream is multiplexed into the aggregate MPEG data stream at the uplink.
3.6.3
Terminal
You may access the terminal command interface by setting Serial Port 1 or Serial Port 2
“device” to “Terminal” (using front panel control, if enabled by Network Control). Terminal
default settings are 19200, N, 8, 1. With a terminal installed, you may access the terminal
commands, which appear on a help screen and are documented in APPENDIX A of this manual.
With the exception of the “R” and “H” commands, they are only available if local control is
enabled.
3.6.4
Modem
The modem command interface is similar to the terminal interface. That is, it does not use
special handshaking or special control characters for this interface, and only supports autoanswer modems. In fact, the unit does not distinguish between an attached terminal and a
modem. To access the modem command interface, the serial port 2 “device” must be set to
“Modem” (using front panel control). To access user commands, the user must enter the correct
password at the prompt. The user then retains access until the “OH” command is received, or
two 10-minute periods pass with no user input. As is the case for the terminal, the user
commands are restricted when local control is disabled.
3.6.5
PAL / NTSC Selection
The UNITY4422 accepts both PAL and NTSC video. Whether the input is PAL or NTSC is
auto-detected, and the appropriate parameters are set under software control.
Page 33 of 72
UTY4422-002
Page 34
3.7
SERIAL PORT - COMMAND SYNTAX
The UNITY4422 contains two serial ports. These are labeled Serial Port 1 and Serial Port 2.
Each can support a printer, a terminal, a modem, or an auxiliary data device. However, there are
restrictions as to what device combinations can be used at one time. There are only 2 rules for
this, and they are shown below. (Also, see Table 13, below.)
1. The same device type (Printer, terminal/modem, or aux. data) cannot be configured
on both ports at the same time. (Terminals and modems are considered the same
device type. See Rule 2.)
2. The combination of a terminal on one port and a modem on the other is not allowed.
The statements on the second line of Table 16 tell which devices can be connected to Serial Port
2 when the device on the top line is connected to Serial Port 1.

terminal/modem commands described in Sections 3.6.1, 3.6.3, and
APPENDIX A.
Note 1. For Printer: ‘B’ may be 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, or 19.2k baud; ‘P’ may be ‘O’ for Odd, ‘E’ for
Even, or ‘N’ for No parity.
Note 2. For Aux Data: ‘B’ may be 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19.2k, or 38.4k baud. ‘P’ may be ‘O’ for
Odd, ‘E’ for Even, or ‘N’ for No parity.
Note 3. For Modem: ‘B’ may be 9600 or 19.2k baud; parity is always ‘N’ for No parity.
* Note: Baud rate and parity are configurable for the Printer, but the serial ports do not
support parity for modem applications.
Supported baud rates are 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, and 38400, while supported parity
types are None, Odd, and Even. When a serial port configuration command is received from any
UTY4422-002
Page 34 of 72
Page 35
control source, the specified configuration is immediately stored for the specified device. The
serial port is configured accordingly, whenever the serial_port.device is device when local panel
control has been enabled by the satellite program provider. If serial_port.device is device at the
time this command is issued, and the configuration differs from the current configuration, the
output_buffer is cleared and the port is reconfigured.
When connected to a Terminal, the port may also be configured for baud rate, etc. Care should
be taken when changing these settings so they agree with the internal terminal settings. If you
change the baud rate of the Terminal Port to 9600, you will have to change the terminal baud
rate to 9600 before you can communicate through the Terminal Port.
The following table specifies which outputs are routed to which device for each of the valid
device combinations.

(Page 36).
Page 35 of 72
UTY4422-002
Page 36
The unit is acting on one of three groups of settings at any given time, each of which is described
in the following table:
Table 16. Group Settings
Settings Group
Description
Temp
These settings are entered via COMPEL or the TEMP / TEMPCH
terminal commands. The unit is said to be inserting when it is
configured to the temp settings. The maximum length of an insert is
approximately 18 hours (65535 seconds). An insert terminates when (1)
it times out, (2) an ABORT command is received, (3) power is cycled,
or (4) an invalid header is seen. Any Temp commands received while
the receiver is currently inserting are ignored. If a Perm command is
received while inserting, the perm_settings are updated but not acted on
until the insert is terminated.
Perm
The perm_settings are entered via COMPEL or the Terminal
Commands PERM and PERMCH, or automatically from within a search
mode (see below). The group perm_settings is the only settings group
stored in NVRAM.
Search
The search_settings are active while in Carrier Search, Header Search,
and Satellite Search modes. When the unit finds what it is looking for
in the search mode, it copies the search_settings to the perm_settings.
These are then considered to be the active settings.
3.8.2
Signal Quality Monitoring
The unit provides the following signal quality information:
Table 17. Unit Signal Quality
Indicator
Description
Eb/No
An average Eb/No reading. It is updated approximately every 500 mS, and
is a 10 second running average of these updates.
Signal Fades
A counter is maintained for transitions from Tracking to Fade mode.
Shows the percentage of time that the unit has been locked on a carrier
since that carrier was first acquired (timer.locked /

E-mail
E-mail messages may be sent from the uplink to the UNITY4422 and displayed on the LC
Display.
To view E-mail messages, follow these steps:
1. When an E-mail message is received, the Warning light will be turned “ON” and the
following message will normally be shown on the LC Display:
WA R N I N G :
E M A I L
P R E S E N T
2. Press <•> or <¶> to scroll through the top-level menu until you see the E-mail screen
which will allow you to view the e-mail. See the screen representations below.
NOTE: If the “Warning” message above is not shown, you may reach the E-mail menu by
scrolling through the top level menu until you see the E-mail menu display. If there is no E-mail
message, you will see the following display.
E M A I L : N O N E
If there is an E-mail message, the display in Step 2 will be shown:
E M A I L
R E A D : < S E L E C T >
Press <SELECT> to view the first 20 characters of the message on the display. To view more of
the message press <•>. You may scroll in either direction by pressing <•> or <¶>. Pressing
and releasing either of these keys will scroll the message 1 character.
3. When you pass the end of the E-mail message, the following will be displayed:
< - - E N D
O F
E M A I L - - >
Page 41 of 72
UTY4422-002
Page 42
4. Press < ENTER >, which will end the current E-mail session, and cause the following
message to display:
R E T U R N
P r e s s
< S E L E C T >
5. Pressing <SELECT> will take you out of the E-mail menu, and return you to the top-level
menu. The following message will be displayed:
E M A I L
R E A D : < S E L E C T >

6. At this point the E-mail is in the buffer, and you may leave it, scroll through it, or clear
(erase) it. You are effectively back at Step 2 (Top Level Menu), with the added option of
“Clearing the message.” This option is not available until you have scrolled through the message
once.
7. If you press <SELECT> you can scroll through the message again. If you stop at this point,
the message remains in the buffer, but any new email message will overwrite the current one.
(See the caution on this page.)
If you press <ENTER> you will erase the E-mail message and remain at the top-level menu.
The following message will be displayed:
E M A I L : N O N E
8. At this point, pressing <•> or <¶> will allow you to scroll through the top-level menu.
NOTE: When moving through the front panel menus, pressing <ENTER> and <SELECT> at
the same time will move you to the top-level menu. This is an immediate move, and does not
save any changes or inputs.

APPENDIX A
Terminal/Modem Commands
Appendix A
* * * CAUTION * * *
Terminal / modem commands fall into two categories--Status Commands and Control
Commands. If Local Control is disabled, the unit will accept only Status Commands.
No Control Commands will be accepted until Local Control is enabled. For more
information, see the commands listed below.
Commands described in this section detail command syntax and action taken. Commands
consist of a command field and a parameter field. Each command field and parameter field is
space delimited. Optional parameters are indicated by square brackets, [ ], and conditional
parameters are indicated by braces, {}.
For example, COMMAND_NAME parameter1 {parameter2} [parameter3] indicates that
parameter1 must be entered, parameter2 entered only when a certain condition is met (certain
option is installed, etc.), and parameter3 is optional. Both commands and parameters may be
entered in upper or lower case; the interface is not case-sensitive.
Incorrect or incomplete commands result in the terminal displaying "Invalid Command."
Parameter errors on User Commands generate "Invalid parameter name" where “parameter
name” is the name of the incorrectly entered parameter.
A.1
STATUS COMMANDS
These commands show status and help displays, but do not allow for changes to that status.
A.1.1
H [command]
command: Any of the terminal command names (H, R, TEMP, etc.).
If an ‘H’ or any invalid command beginning with an 'H' is entered and command is omitted, the
whole help screen will be displayed, consisting of a list of all available commands and a brief
description of each listing. If an ‘H’ or any invalid command beginning with an 'H' is entered
and command is a valid User Command Name, then detailed help for command is displayed.

The ASI Input FIFO is underflowing. This could mean the data
rate is set too high. Ensure that the incoming data rate equals the
unit’s data rate.

Glossary of Terms
AMBER – A “yellow” LED, usually denoting caution or a minor problem.
ASI – Asynchronous Serial Interface. A standard for carrying MPEG-2 transport streams at a
specific transmission rate.
ASIC – Application-Specific Integrated Circuit:
BLINK – An LED which is ON for 250 mS and OFF for 250 mS, with the pattern continuing
for some time, is said to “Blink.” See Table 11 (Page 30). Also, see “FLASH” and “Flutter.”
COMPEL™ – Wegener's patented satellite network control system. This is a system which
features a control data stream embedded along with the payload services, where a single central
control site may control all aspects of network operation: database management, program
selection and setup by site, grouping of sites, scheduling, etc.
COMPEL-CA™ – Wegener’s satellite network encryption system.
DAC – Digital-to-Analog Converter. A device that converts a sequence of numbers representing
signal amplitudes in electronic binary format to actual analog signals.
EEPROM – Electrically-Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory. This acronym is used to
describe any non-volatile memory device that can be read- or written-to a nearly unlimited
number of times, but which retains its last written data when power is turned off.
FLASH – An LED which is ON for 100 mS and OFF for 100 mS, with the pattern continuing
for some time, is said to “Flash.” See Table 11 (Page 30). Also, see “BLINK” and “Flutter.”
FLUTTER – An LED that is ON for 50 mS and OFF for 50 mS, with the pattern continuing for
some time, is said to “Flutter.” See Table 11 (Page 30). Also, see “BLINK” and “FLASH.”
MCPC – Multiple-Channel-Per-Carrier. Means that one or more services or programs are
present on a particular radio-frequency carrier.
NVRAM – Non-Volatile Random-Access Memory – Random Access Memory which does not
‘lose’ its contents when power is off.
NTSC – National Television Standards Committee. This is a shorthand description for the
standard 525-line, 30-frames-per-second analog baseband television signal format used in the
US. and several other countries.
Page 63 of 72
UTY4422-002
Page 64
MPEG, MPEG Transport Stream – Moving Picture Experts Group. This catchall
abbreviation is used to describe the digital compression (redundancy reduction) of linearly
digitized audio and video signals as well as the mode of multiplexing and transporting that
compressed data. The Transport stream is a packetized system consisting of a sequence of 188byte packets, each with a sync-byte and a specific payload identified by a payload ID (or PID).
The stream contains packets not only for the compressed audio and video, but also auxiliary
data, program information and allocation data, and conditional access information.
PAL – Phase Alternate Line. The analog television standard used in most of Asia and Europe.
PAL transmits 625 lines.
PES – Packetized Elementary Stream. A data stream carried within the Transport Stream. In
this unit, it is an audio data stream.
PID – Payload Identifier (or ID). See "MPEG."
PMT – Program Map Table. In an MPEG Data Stream, this Data Packet contains the PID’s of
subsequent Packets that contain each Program’s compressed Video, Audio, or Data.
QPSK – Quadrature Phase Shift Keying. This is a popular mode of transmitting digital
information by varying the phase of a radio-frequency carrier.
RED – Normally, a red LED denotes a warning or a major problem.
SCPC – Single-Channel-Per-Carrier. Only one service or program is present on a particular
radio-frequency carrier.
SETTINGS TABLE – An internal table of alternate carrier/program settings stored in the unit’s
non-volatile memory (remembered through power cycles). This table may be used in the
following ways: (1) If an unit is unable to acquire the commanded carrier, then it will, after an
appropriate time-delay, search for and lock onto any carriers in the table it may be able to find.
(2) If local control is enabled, a user, may, through the front-panel or terminal command, tune
the unit to a new setting found in the table using the shorthand of the Settings Table entry
number.
TMRA – Temperature Mounting Rack Ambient. The ambient temperature of the mounting rack
where the equipment is located. This temperature is more relevant to the operating condition of
the equipment than the ambient temperature of the room where the equipment rack is located.
