Menu Structure
The menu system allows a user to control various configurations of the DIDO Jr.
For all menus, Up/Down arrows move the cursor (yellow highlighted selection) up/down. Central key
(SEL key) selects the current submenu/option, confirms changes, and finishes text entry (passwords,
presets, etc.). Left/Right arrows change the currently active option, if possible.
The sub-menus will be discussed in more details in the subsequent chapters.
7.2.1 Main Menu
Main Menu contains the branches to all sub-menus. All different features can be accessed from this Main
Menu.
13
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
7.2.2 Window Setup
This is where source, size, position, zoom, and crop can be modified per window. Once selected, the
choice of window for modification will appear. Window Setup affects the characteristics of the window
itself and not the image inside the window.
Source allows input signal to be assigned to a specific window. For example, the menu below shows that
DVI is assigned to window 1 and Video input is assigned to window 2.
Window Size gives the ability to change the horizontal and vertical sizes of a window.
Window Position gives the ability to independently change the horizontal and vertical positions of a
window. Note that to move a window, the size of that window must be smaller than the active area.
14
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
Window Zoom gives the ability to proportionally change both the horizontal and vertical sizes of a
window.
Window Crop allows each of the edges of an image to be adjusted into the window to help reduce noise
specific to an input. Crop is specific to the current resolution of the input inside the window. It must be
saved into a profile in order for it to be automatically applied. If a new resolution is applied, crop must be
re-adjusted. Crop is best for video images that have noisy borders. If the arrow key is pressed once, the
value will change by one pixel. If an arrow is pressed and held for 2 or more seconds, the value will
change by 10 pixels instead.
Note: For Window Size, Window Position, and Window Zoom, there are 1000 points of accuracy. If the
arrow key is pressed once, the value will change by tenths of a percent. If an arrow is pressed and held
for two or more seconds, the value will change by 1 percent instead of tenths.
Video wall setup allows quick setup of a multiple monitor system. Enter the total number of columns and
rows as well as the row and column of the one that’s being setup followed by apply changes. The output
will be changed to the appropriate size. It is still necessary to account for the bezel size of the display
device by manually changing the zoom, size or crop. When done, make certain to save in a preset.
15
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
7.2.3 Input Setup
Input Setup allows a user to manually configure different connector inputs.
SVID: Auto, S-Video, and Video. If the image can not lock well due to poor sync, use the manual
selection.
DVI: Auto, Norm PC, Wide PC, and Video. The manual selection helps to set correct input timing such
as Video or PC. This will help the DIDO Jr. to better sync on an input.
RGB: Auto, Norm PC, Wide PC, and Video. The manual selection helps to set correct input timing such
as Video or PC. This will help the DIDO Jr. to better sync on an input.
RGB/YPbPr: RGBHV, RGsB, and YPbPr. Select the type of signal connected to the RGB input.
ADC Settings currently has phase control as the selection. It is used to reduce noise on the YPbPr input
due to the cable or other factors and to correct the phase of H/V syncs of RGB input.
7.2.4 Layout Setup
The Layout Setup menu determines the way the windows are positioned and how many windows are
displayed.
16
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
Layout selects window layout from Single, PiP, and Dual
Stack Type selects the positions of windows 1 and 2 in Dual mode. The selections are Left-Right and UpDown.
Left-Right Dual Mode
Up-Down Dual Mode
Rotate will rotate picture by 0, 90, 180, and 270 degrees.
PiP Transparency sets the transparency level (16 levels) of the pip window when in PiP mode.
PiP Size adjusts the size of the PiP window from 0 - 100 percent with accuracy down to the tenths.
PiP Position adjusts the position of the PiP window from 0 - 100 percent with accuracy down to the
tenths.
17
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
Flip Setup changes the input image orientation with respect to the output. This allows for mirror images
or back to back images in rotated modes to create new effects.
Horizontal Disabled
Horizontal Enabled
7.2.5 Output Setup
Output timing for the DVI/RGBHV/YPbPr connector is selected here. Output type can also be modified
from this menu for the analog portion of the connector. The selections are RGBHV, RGsB, YPbPr, and
No Output.
HDCP Output gives the ability to always have HDCP enable or the DIDO will decide when to enable and
disable the HDCP.
Video settings adjust the brightness, contrast, saturation, and hue of picture output. All windows will be
affected when adjusted.
7.2.6 Preset Setup
This menu allows the saving and loading of up to 99 presets. To save or load a preset, select Load Preset
or Save Preset. Then change preset number to be saved or loaded. Press “SEL” to confirm changes. If it is
saving, the OSD will display “Preset is being saved”. Presets can take up to 2 seconds to load. So if only
simple switching sources is needed, use the keys or RS-232 commands for quicker changing of inputs.
Presets are great for a starting point when many things need to change at once as it stores everything such
output resolution, modes, input setup, video settings etc.
18
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
7.2.7 System Settings
This menu allows the selection of items which affect the overall DIDO Jr. operation.
Unit Address allows many DIDO JR units to be connected via RS-485. When connecting multiple DIDO
JR units via the RS-485, each unit must be addressed differently. This address will be used when
controlling via RS-232 from a control system or PC. In addition, the last unit in the chain must have
RS-485 Termination enable.
The IR remote is also addressable (see IR remote section) and if set to the same address as the DIDO JR,
it will control only that DIDO Jr. This feature is very useful when multiple DIDO JR units are present to
prevent inadvertently controlling other units.
Remote Query is a diagnostic tool used to check for any DIDO Jr. remote’s current address even if it is
not matched to the address of that DIDO Jr. unit.
OSD Setup turns on/off the Menu Transparency and OSD.
Menu Transparency allows the menu to blend with the background.
19
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
Show OSD can disable the On Screen Display. When using the front keypad for setup via the LCD, it will
prevent the OSD from coming on the screen. This is handy when making changes to the system while it is
being viewed.
Background Color determines the color of the window when no input signal is present.
Noise reduction allows the DIDO Jr. to clean up an image with random noise caused by poor or weak
signal. There are two types of noise reduction filters available. The first one is “Spatial Filter” which is
good for signals from poor TV reception. The second one is “Temporal Filter” which is a good overall
noise reduction to clean up an image. There is a penalty when using noise reduction which is the
softening of the image. Best way to use noise reduction is trial and error to see what works best for the
application.
Motion handling is for DIDO Jr. Motion Adaptive De-interlacing. There are three options to choose from.
Option 2 gives the best overall compromise of feathering and jitter when enabling this feature. Once
again, it is best that different options are used with the content to see which works best.
Scaling Filter is for the graphics channel. This should be enabled in most cases especial when an image
is being down scaled or reduced in sized. The scaling filter is not used when an image is up scaled or
increased in size.
ADC Calibration is for the RGBHV inputs color settings. The Auto will automatically adjust the gain
and offset for each color when a test pattern is inputted. The Manual allows adjustment to a user’s
reference or with external color analyzer.
20
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
DIDO Jr. Reconfig will re-sync all the current input signals as if the inputs were disconnected and
reconnected.
Default Settings will reset the DIDO Jr. to factory settings (default settings). All customized settings will
be deleted.
21
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
8 Signal Timing
This menu allows the adjusting and adding of input and output resolutions. There are currently ten user
profiles for customized input and output resolutions. Horizontal Frequency and Pixel clock are
automatically calculated inside the DIDO Jr. When done making changes, select Apply Changes to save.
Keep in mind any change made affect all inputs using the resolution as well as outputs.
WARNING: When making custom resolutions, make sure the device that accepts the signal is capable of
handling it. Failure to do so may result in damage in some devices. Consult the User Manual before
applying new resolutions with different frequencies.
8.1.1 Timer and Scheduler
The timer scheduler is great for display signage. The DIDO Jr. has a built in real time clock which has
backed-up battery. This menu allows for the time and date to be set as well as two types of scheduling.
Current Date and Time is important to the operation as the accuracy of the scheduler is based upon the
settings in this menu. If the region the DIDO Jr. is located in has daylight savings then it should be turned
on to keep the time correct throughout the year.
22
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
Time Events are events based on the time of day. The DIDO Jr. can have 5 different time events
programmed.
When the an event is turned on, the time selected will cause the DIDO Jr. and all other DIDO Jr. units
connected on the RS-485 bus to carry out a preset, power on, or power off.
Timer Events are events based on a cycling time line. This means the DIDO Jr. will carry out repeating
functions in a timeline. The DIDO Jr. can have 5 different timer events programmed.
When an event is turned on, the timer selected will cause the DIDO Jr. and all other DIDO Jr. units
connected on the RS-485 bus to carry out a preset, power on, or power off.
If multiple DIDO Jr. units are used, the schedulers can be used in all units to gain more events. It is not
necessary to program all DIDO Jr. units with the same events as they will conflict (time conflict) with
each other. However, if they are programmed at different times, it will work properly with no conflict.
23
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
Video Wall Functionality
When multiple DIDO Jr. units are used, a very powerful but yet cost effective video wall can be created.
The DIDO Jr. can create video walls that have real time vertical rotation of single or multiple images. For
easy setup, the DIDO Jr. has a Video Wall Setup menu under Windows Setup. This menu allows a user to
enter the amount of rows and columns of the video wall as well as the current location of the DIDO Jr..
Once entered, the DIDO Jr. will calculate the proper size for the unit which can then be saved into a
preset.
Example of 2x2 Video Wall Settings:
For this example, 4 DIDO Jr. units will be needed. The output of each DIDO Jr. will be connected to a
display that’s assigned to that specific DIDO Jr.. The source to be shown across the four displays will
need to be put through a distribution amplifier (D/A) to feed the same source into the four DIDO Jr. units.
From Video Wall Setup of each DIDO Jr.:
- Set number of columns and rows to 2 (2x2).
- Set column and row of each DIDO Jr. to its corresponding quadrant. In 2x2 mode, if column
and row are set to 1, then this DIDO Jr. will display the 1st quadrant. If column is set to 2 and
row is set to 1, then this DIDO Jr. will display the 2nd quadrant and so on.
Note on video wall setup:
- Input the highest possible resolution because it will produce a better picture on the output (the
output picture will not be zoomed as much).
- Avoid using composite video sources as the dot crawl will be magnified. S-Video, YPbPr,
RGBHV, and DVI are the better choices with DVI providing the cleanest picture.
- Use the DVI output of the DIDO Jr. units because it will keep the image clean and sharp.
- Match the output resolution of the DIDO Jr. to the displays native resolution.
Wire the RS-232/485 as per the connection diagram located in the back of the manual and set the address
in each DIDO Jr. unit so they are different from each other. This will help when using presets, IR remote
control, and RS-232 control. The DIDO LOOP KIT can be purchased separately for easy connections.
Ideally a video generator should be present with a grid pattern to set each DIDO Jr. unit to the appropriate
quadrant. When using the grid make certain all the boxes are square even though the screens may be
rectangular. Also, make certain the display device has all zoom modes and aspect controls set to default
positions. Using the Zoom, Size, Position, and Crop to adjust and center the picture and store it in a
preset. Even though each DIDO Jr. unit will be zoomed to a different area of the original image, it is best
to store it to the same preset as all the other units. When that preset is recalled, all units will go to the
appropriate area they were set for. Repeat this for each source and each effect desired.
Depending on input and output resolutions, video walls up to 32 x 32 can be created. Video walls with
rotated images can be created as well with a combination of both rotated and non-rotated to create a
puzzle effect.
24
DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
9 Real Time Image Rotation
The DIDO Jr. can do real-time image rotation with resolutions up to 1900 x 1200 @ 60Hz. Its patent
pending multi-image rotation allows a display to show multiple rotated images at the same time.
These examples below show some of the many possibilities.
Single Rotated
Dual Rotated
Rotated PiP
Single Rotated Translucent PiP
Images can be cropped and zoomed for stretch to fit. The edges can also be cut off to show only the
middle for runway effects and thus keeping the image proportional.
Rotated flat displays have many benefits as listed below:
1) Two images can be displayed one on top of another to create two nearly 4:3 images.
2) In a presentation with images are rotated vertically, the presenter will not block any image on the
screen. With a horizontal display doing side by side images, it’s most likely that the image closer
to the presenter will be blocked.
3) Vertically rotated pictures can help preventing burn-in image on plasma display. With horizontal
display doing side by side, the top and bottom usually have black areas to keep the image
proportional. These black areas, if stay on for a long time, will cause the phosphor to burn
unequally.
As there are benefits to having rotated displays, a user may also want to still be able to show a display
horizontally. There are companies that make rotating wall mounts that can be operated manually or
motorized.
Display Devices manufactures motorized wall mounts for plasma and LCD displays. Check out
www.displaydevices.com for more info.

Checks
Check to see if the batteries are good. If the batteries are
good – check the cable connections between the Plasma
Display and the DIDO Jr. Also, make certain the DIDO Jr.
has power.
Check if the IR remote address is the same as the DIDO
Jr.’s address in System Setup menu.
Check to see if the OSD from the DIDO Jr. displays. If it
does check the source selection and/or cables for the
source. If there is no OSD then make certain the output
cable is connected properly and the output timing of the
DIDO Jr. matches the capabilities of the display device.
Make sure the DIDO Jr. is not in standby.
Check cable connection. If connection is ok, check baud
rate and address of DIDO Jr.
This could happen if a DVI cable is too long. Typical DVI
should not exceed 6ft. Some after market products can
enhance the length of DVI. Double check the specifications
before using these types of DVD cables.
Under Input Settings, check the selection for the SVID. If
the video sync is weak try using video selection instead of
Auto. Also, make certain it is not set for S-Video.
Under Input Settings check the selection for the SVID.
Make certain the selection is not set for Video.
If the content has HDCP, the RGB/YPbPr output will be
disabled due to copyright protection. If it is not HDCP
protected, heck the Output Setup to make certain RGB is
not disabled.
Check output resolution is compatible with display device
and the DIDO Jr. is not in standby mode.
Make certain the DIDO Jr. input for RGB/YPbPr is set up
correctly.
If the output of the DIDO Jr. is setup incorrectly (RGBHV vs
YPbPr vs RGsB) it may result in a green image.
DIDO Jr. does not have this feature. Must use regular
DIDO if this feature is desired.
DIDO Jr. does not have this feature. Must use regular

DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
11 Firmware update
The internal software of DIDO Jr. (the firmware) can be updated. This is necessary since new FW will
correct bugs from previous versions or add new functionalities. The serial port of the DIDO Jr. must be
connected to the RS-232 (“COM”) port of a PC-compatible personal computer, running MS-Windows 98,
2000, or XP operating systems. Make certain to set the baud rate to 115k, unit address to 0, and back up
the settings before updating firmware. Always check the serial number on the DIDO Jr. unit to make sure
the new firmware is compatible with the hardware revision. Some features may not work depending on
DIDO Jr. model, which is determined by the four digit batch number (example: bbbb-SNxxxx with
“bbbb” representing the batch number).
Update procedure
• Create a directory for the DIDO Jr. (such as C:\DIDO).
• Save the attached files to the created directory.
• Unzip the files if necessary.
• Open a Win32 (Command Prompt) window (Start Æ Run Æ cmd Æ Enter).
• Change to DIDO Jr. directory (C:\DIDO).
• Type this command “DIDOldr.exe 1 DIDO.did” and press “Enter.” (Note: To change the COM
port use the appropriate comm. port number in place of the 1)
• It will take approximately 20 seconds to finish programming and the device will restart itself. If
it does not restart, unplug the power and re-apply it after 5 seconds.
• Under System Settings select Default Settings and confirm.
Important: avoid programming the DIDO Jr. using USB-RS232 adapter since it may not work
properly.
Example:
“DIDOldr.exe 1 DIDOJr.did”
DIDO.ldr.exe: program loader
1: COM port used to program the DIDO Jr. (for example, 2 is for COM 2)
DIDOJr.did: firmware (this file name can be anything such as DIDOJr040916.did)
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

Warning:
In the event the firmware update is interrupted during the transfer process, cycle the power on the DIDO
Jr. and wait 30 sec after reapplying the power to start the transfer process again. The LCD screen may be
blank but that is normal if this should happen.

12 Cloning
The DIDO Jr. can be cloned to save and restore all current parameters.
There are two steps involved in cloning procedure. They are:
1. Learning or downloading data (settings) from DIDO Jr. to the computer.
2. Teaching or uploading data (settings) from computer to the DIDO Jr.
Before cloning the DIDO Jr., a folder which will be used to store data from the master DIDO Jr.
needs to be created (for example: C\DIDO Jr.\data). The clone utility (CloneLdr.exe) will be saved to that
directory.
Important:
DIDO Jr. may not be cloned properly if a USB to RS 232 adapter is used.
Command lines for learning and teaching:

DIDO Jr. Installation Manual
General Info:
After each command you need to wait for the following answer "~<ADDR> OK <string><CR>" before
sending the next RS-232 command. Some commands require time to carry out the function assigned. If
another command is sent before the DIDO Jr. can complete the first task it may ignore the next function.
Always allow the DIDO Jr. the proper time to finish the command. Commands which take the longest
would be Preset Load and Save and Source changes.
Invalid commands will reply with ~ERROR<CR> as long as the address is zero.
Convert the multi-digit ASCII decimal representation response to a true hexadecimal value. Ex. xx = 13
(0x31, 0x33) turn this into 0D. The bit information is once the ASCII to hexadecimal conversion has
been done.
