Introduction
BBG-1022-2FS Functional Description
BBG-1022-2FS Functional Description
Figure 1-1 shows a functional block diagram of the BBG-1022-2FS. The
BBG-1022-2FS dual-channel framesync provides two independent signal
paths (Path 1 and Path 2) of framesync / audio embedding and de-embedding
on a single device. The two paths share an input and output SDI crosspoint to
receive and send two discrete SDI inputs and outputs. The BBG-1022-2FS
also includes AES/analog audio support and CVBS video I/O. In addition to a
basic signal presence input failover function, a Quality Check option allows
failover to alternate inputs based on user-configurable subjective criteria such
as black or frozen frame. Two discrete character burn strings and timecode
burn (per path) can be inserted on output video, with each string inserted as
static text and/or insert only upon LOS. A moving-box insertion can be
enabled to serve as a dynamic raster confidence check even in cases where the
input video image is static or lost.
The BBG-1022-2FS also provides timecode/closed-captioning conversion
from packet-based timecode formats and CEA608/708 HD formats to HD
ATC, SD_ATC, and SD VITC-based (waveform) timecode.
BBG-1022-2FS Input/Output Formats
The BBG-1022-2FS provides the following inputs and outputs (which can be
independently used for Path 1 and/or Path 2:
•
Inputs:
• 3G/HD/SD SDI IN A thru SDI IN D – four 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs.
SDI IN A or SDI IN B can be set to failover to A or B in absence of
opposite channel of this pair.
• CVBS IN – CVBS coaxial analog video input.
• AES IN – BNC (AES-3id, 75Ω) ports as AES input (number of
ports dependent on model).
• AN-AUD IN – Up to four balanced analog audio embed inputs
(number of inputs dependent on model).

Introduction
BBG-1022-2FS Functional Description
Video Processor Description
Note:
Unless otherwise noted, the following functions are independently available
for Path 1 and Path 2 processing paths.
The BBG-1022-2FS video subsystem provides the functions described below.
Input Video Select/Quality Check Functions
Used in common as a routing source for both Path 1/Path 2 is a GUI-based
control that allows selecting from up to four 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs, and a SD
CVBS analog video input. For analog inputs, waveform-based ancillary data
is preserved for extraction and usage later in the device processing chain.
The input can be selected using manual user control, set to failover to an
alternate input upon loss of the target input, and can be externally selected via
a GPIO interface. Reclocked copies of any SDI input can be outputted when
selected as a choice on the output crosspoint.
(Option +QC). Quality Check allows criteria such as black/
frozen frame events to propagate an event alert. This alert can be used by the
Presets function to invoke video routing changes, GPO, and other actions.
Timecode Processor
(See Figure 1-2.) This function provides for extraction of timecode data from
input video source, and in turn allow individual timecode strings to be
embedded and/or burned into the output video. The function can monitor any
of the video inputs for supported timecode formats such as ATC_LTC or
ATC_VITC for down-conversions to HD, and ATC_VITC or VITC
waveform (with selectable odd/even field line number control) for SD SDI or
CVBS inputs. Waveform VITC timecode can also be extracted from a
reference input and used as the output timecode value. If the preferred format
is detected, the preferred format is used by the device; if the preferred format
is not detected, the device uses other formats (where available) as desired. An
internally-generated free-run timecode can be also be embedded on output
video if desired.
The function also provides conversion between various timecode formats and
provides independent insertion and line number controls for each SDI
timecode output format.
When licensed with option +LTC, this function also can
receive, send and translate between audio/RS-485 LTC timecode formats and
the VBI formats described above.

Frame Sync Function
This function provides for frame sync control using an external looping
reference signal, or the input video as a frame sync reference.
This function also allows horizontal and/or vertical offset to be added
between the output video and the frame sync reference.
Frame sync can select from either the external frame reference source,
free-run, or input video sync. Selectable failover allows alternate reference
selection should the initial reference source become unavailable or invalid. In
the event of input video loss of signal, the output can be set to disable video,
go to black, go to an internal test signal generator pattern, or freeze to the last
intact frame (last frame having valid SAV and EAV codes).
An internal test signal generator provides a selection of several standard
patterns such as color bars, sweep patterns, and other technical patterns. The
test patterns can be applied to the output video upon loss of input or manually
inserted at any time.

Introduction
BBG-1022-2FS Functional Description
Wings Insertion
Wings insertion allows a symmetrical L-R wings insertion to be integrated
into the program video output. Wings video is accommodated using a
separate wings SDI input. The wings user interface displays wings timing
relative to the device output video, allowing wings timing offset to be
adjusted such that wings can be properly framed. (This function does not
provide timing offset control of the wings video; offset must be provided by a
external frame sync card or device controlling the wings video feed.)
Key/Fill Insertion
Option +KEYER provides for three of the SDI video inputs to be used as
respective program video, key, and fill inputs. This function provides chroma
keying using the KEY VID IN signal. The FILL VID IN signal provides the fill
video that is inserted in the area “cleared out” by the key. The keying user
interface displays key and fill timing relative to the output video, allowing
timing offset to be adjusted such that key and fill can be properly framed.
(The option does not provide timing offset control of the key/fill video; offset
must be provided by external frame sync cards or devices controlling the key
and fill video feed.) The program video input when using keying
accommodates either an SDI or an analog video input; key and fill inputs are
SDI only.
Alpha threshold keyer modes allow full-color key/fill from cost-effective
generic sources such as a standard PC (with appropriate HDMI-to-SDI output
conversion) hosting simple .bmp, .jpeg, or .png graphic files. In these modes,
a common key/fill SDI input provides both the key and fill input.
Closed Captioning Processor
This function provides support for closed captioning setup. The function
allows the selection of the ancillary data line number where the ancillary
closed caption data is outputted when the output is HD. When receiving
HD-SDI, both CEA 608 and CEA 708 are supported. Line 21 CEA 608
waveform-based SD closed captioning is also supported.
Color Corrector
Option +COLOR converts the YCbCr SDI input video to the 4:4:4 RGB color
space (where the color correction is applied), and then back to YCbCr SDI on
the output. Controls are available to adjust each RGB level independently for
both white levels (gain) and black levels (offset). Gamma can also be
independently adjusted for each RGB channels. Various controls can be
ganged to provide adjustment for all three color channels simultaneously.

BBG-1022-2FS Functional Description
Character/Image Burn-in Functions
User text and timecode (as selected using the timecode function) can be
burned into the output video. Burn-in attributes such as size, position,
background, color, and opacity are user-configurable. Two discrete character
burn strings can be inserted on output video, with each string inserted as static
text and/or insert only upon LOS. A moving-box insertion can be enabled to
serve as a dynamic raster confidence check even in cases where the input
video image is static or lost.
Ancillary Data Processor
This function provides full VANC/HANC ancillary data de-embedding and
embedding for 3G/HD/SD-SDI streams. Direct access to DID and SDID
locations allows extraction or insertion of user data such as camera PTZ,
SCTE 104, closed-captioning read/insert, GPI/GPO via ANC, or other
specialized user payloads. Data can be extracted and inserted within the
device (Bridge mode), or inserted and/or extracted to and from the device via
serial or IP interfaces connecting to external devices/systems. A rear I/O
module with a dedicated IP port can be used with the ancillary data processor
function for data insertion or extraction via IP.
Video Quality Events Detect Function
Option +QC provides a Video Quality Events user interface and an Event
Triggers user interface for setting an area of concern across the program raster
which can be monitored for frozen or black video events. Threshold controls
allow setting the sensitivity of the function, while engage and disengage
threshold timing controls allow setting how fast the event detection engages
and releases when triggered. The Event Triggers user interface allows
instructing the device as to the action to take upon an event (such as go to a
changed signal routing, activate a GPO, send an automated email, or go to a
user-defined preset).
Closed Captioning Events Detect Function
An Event Triggers user interface can detect Closed Caption Presence and
Closed Caption Absence events. The Event Triggers user interface in turn
allows instructing the device as to the action to take upon an event (such as go
to a changed signal routing, activate a GPO, send an automated email, or go to
a user-defined preset).
Video Output Crosspoint
Used in common as a routing source for both Path 1/Path 2 is a four-output
video matrix crosspoint that allows independently applying the processed
video output, reclocked input, or wings/key-fill previews to any of the four
discrete coaxial outputs (SDI OUT 1 thru SDI OUT 4). For an SD output, a
CVBS coaxial output is available as a processed video output.

Introduction
BBG-1022-2FS Functional Description
Audio Processor Description
Note:
Path 1 and Path 2 have individual independent digital audio embed and
de-embed banks for each of the processing path’s 16-channels of embedded
audio. The device’s 16 channels of AES embed/de-embed can be allocated
individually to any or either path’s embed or de-embed nodes. Similarly,
four-channel analog audio can be individually allocated across any or either
path’s embed or de-embed nodes
The audio processor operates as an internal audio router. This function
chooses from the following inputs:
•
•
•
16 channels of embedded audio from the SDI video input (default
1-to-1 routing to SDI output)
Up to 16 channels (8 pairs) of discrete AES input1
Up to 4 channels of balanced analog audio input
(See Figure 1-3.) The audio processing subsection is built around an internal
16-channel audio bus. This 16-channel bus receives inputs from an input
routing crosspoint that routes de-embedded, and discrete AES and analog
audio inputs, over the 16-channel bus. Correspondingly, at the output end of
the 16-channel bus is an output routing crosspoint that in turn distributes the
16-channel bus signals to embedded, and discrete AES and analog audio
outputs.
An Input Audio Status display shows the presence and peak level of each
input audio channel received. In addition to SDI embedded audio channel
sources, analog and coaxial AES inputs are available as input audio choices.
For AES audio inputs, payload is identified (PCM or data such as Dolby®
Digital or E). Each AES input pair has independent sample rate converters to
align each input pair with video timing to accommodate cases where AES
audio is not synchronous with input video (SRC automatically bypassed for
non-PCM payloads). As such, the audio subsection provides a full crosspoint
between all supported audio inputs and output types.
The audio output crosspoint for each path’s embedded output allows
embedded channel selection from the respective path’s own channels, or
channels from the alternate processing path.
1. Discrete audio I/O channel count is dependent on model. Current models may not support maximum
number of available discrete channels.

Audio Down Mix Function
(See Figure 1-4.) The Audio Down Mixer function provides for the selection
of any five embedded channels serving as Left (L), Right (R), Center (C), Left
Surround (Ls), and Right Surround (Rs) individual signals to be multiplexed
into stereo pair Down Mix Left (DM-L) and Down Mix Right (DM-R). The
resulting stereo pair DM-L and DM-R can in turn be routed to any embedded
audio pair as desired (or de-embedded to an AES or analog audio output).

Flex Buses. For both input and output nodes before and after the device
internal buses, flex buses provide flexible-structure mixer in which any of 16
summing nodes (Flex Mix Bus A thru Flex Mix Bus P) can receive any device
audio input, thereby allowing several customizable mixing schemes.
Similarly, any of the 16 device internal bus signals can be applied to an output
flex bus mixer. The output flex bus allows cross-sourcing from both Path 1
and Path 2 embedded internal Audio Bus sources to the Path 1 and Path 2
discrete output audio crosspoints.

Introduction
BBG-1022-2FS Functional Description
Text-To-Speech.
(Option +TTS) Cobalt Digital +TTS is a
complete 21CVAA digital text-to-speech generation / audio insertion solution
for embedded and discrete audio systems. +TTS is available as a software
option for BBG-1022-2FS.
+TTS interfaces with industry standard Windows Share folder systems to
receive non-proprietary text, XML, or similar plain text files, and converts
and inserts realistic human-voice audio into user-configured audio channels
(typically an SAP channel pair intended for this playout). +TTS allows for
prioritization based on the organization's discretion (for example, severe
weather alerts out-prioritizing school closings). Alert tones are inserted over
the main program channels to alert the visually impaired that emergency
content is to occur on the SAP channel. Alerts can be played a configurable
number of times, and alerts with higher priority can interrupt current lists for
breaking news. Once the interrupt message is broadcast, +TTS automatically
reverts to normal audio programming. Refer to +TTS Manual Supplement
OPT-TTS-MS for detailed information and installation/setup instructions.
This supplement is furnished with the option.
2.0-to-5.1 Upmixer.
(Option +UM) The 2.0-to-5.1 upmixer
function receives a normal PCM stereo pair from any internal audio bus
channel pair. The stereo pair is upmixed to provide 5.1 channels (Left (L),
Right (R), Center (C), Low Frequency Effects (LFE), Left Surround (Ls), and
Right Surround (Rs)). Whenever the upmixer is active, it overwrites the six
selected 5.1 output channels with the new 5.1 upmix signals (including
replacing the original source stereo L and R inputs with new L and R signals).
The 2.0-to-5.1 upmixer can be set to upmix in any of three modes: Always
upmix, Bypass upmix, or Auto enable/bypass upmixing. The Auto upmixing
mode looks at the signal levels on the selected channels and compares them to
a selectable level threshold. It then determines whether or not to generate 5.1
upmixing from the stereo pair as follows:
•
If the upmixer detects signal level below a selected threshold on all
three of the selected channels designated as C, Ls, and Rs, this
indicates to the upmixer that these channels are not carrying 5.1. In
this case, the upmixer produces new 5.1 content generated by the
upmixer.
•
If the upmixer detects signal level above a selected threshold on any
of the three selected channels designated as C, Ls, and Rs, this
indicates to the upmixer that the channel(s) are already carrying
viable 5.1 content. In this case, the upmixer is bypassed and the
channels fed to the upmixer pass unaffected to the upmixer outputs.
The examples in Figure 1-5 show the automatic enable/disable upmixing
function applied to example selected channels Bus Ch 1 thru Bus Ch 6. As
shown and described, the processing is contingent upon the signal levels of
the channels selected to carry the new 5.1 upmix relative to the selected
threshold (in this example, -60 dBFS).

Loudness Processor.
(See Figure 1-6.) The loudness
processor (option +LP) function receives up to six selected channels from the
internal bus and performs loudness processing on the selected channels. A
loudness processing profile best suited for the program material can be
selected from several loudness processing presets.
Note:
Discussion and example here describes 5.1-channel loudness processor.
Stereo and dual-stereo processors operate similar to described here.
The example in Figure 1-6 shows routing of embedded output channels Emb

Control and Data Input/Output Interfaces
GPI Interface
Two independent ground-closure sensing GPI inputs (GPI 1 and GPI 2; each
sharing common ground connection as chassis potential) are available.
Associated with each GPI user control is a selection of one of 32 user-defined
device presets in which GPI activation invokes a device control preset.
Because the GPI closure invokes a user-defined preset, the resulting setup is
highly flexible and totally user-defined. Invoking a user preset to effect a
change involves device setup communication limited only to the items being
changed; the device remains on-line during the setup, and the called preset is
rapidly applied.
GPI triggering can be user selected to consider the activity on discrete GPI
ports, or combinations of logic states considering both GPI inputs, as well as
be set for level or edge triggering. This flexibility allows multistage,
progressive actions to be invoked if desired. Indication is provided showing
whenever a GPI input has been invoked.
GPO Interface
Two independent phototransistor non-referenced (floating) contact pairs
(GPO 1/1 and GPO 2/2) are available. A GPO can be invoked by setting a GPO
to be enabled when a device preset is in turn applied (i.e., when a preset is
invoked (either manually or via event-based loading), the GPO is
correspondingly also activated.

BBG-1022-2FS Function Submenu List
Allows manual or failover selection of SDI program
video inputs and displays status and raster format of
received SDI video.
Input Video Controls
• Input Video Source/Status
Selects the input video source to be applied to the device Path 1 and
Path 2 program video inputs.
Note: • SDI inputs selected must be used with Rear I/O Module
correspondingly equipped with intended input ports.
• Some choices shown are a function of options.
• Input select also allows internal connection from one
processing path output to the opposite processing path input.
This allows “serial” or cascaded processing connections
without requiring external jumpering on the rear panel. Serial
jumpering can, in addition to other functions, provide identical
program video output streams with a delay offset between the
two streams.
• Care should be taken to make certain an output
from a video path is not applied as an input for the
same path. Also, if framesync Lock to Input else
Free Run is selected, the initial “upstream” path
must be selected using Lock to Input Path control
(for example, if Path 1 cascades to Path 2, this
control must be set for Path 1 as lock source).
SDI A thru SDI D and
CVBS Status show
raster/format for all card
inputs. If signal is not
present or is invalid,
Unlocked is displayed.
(These status
indications are also
propagated to the Card
Info pane.)
Note: Status display shows maximum input complement. Input
complement is determined by rear I/O module used.
Cascaded “Serial” Dual-Path Example
In this example, the dual paths are used to provide a regular program video path, as well as an identical path that imports key/
fill. The second path used for key/fill uses an independent delay value to accommodate the key/fill graphics external devices.

Path 2 is set to output over SDI
OUT 2 as the key/fill pgm output.
Path 1 receives the basic pgm input, while
Path 2 receives the 7-frame delayed pgm
output. Along with key/fill inputs received
over SDI IN C and D, this path provides the
key/fill version of the pgm video, with
added delay to accommodate the key/fill
sources.

For each SDI output port supported by the device, provides a crosspoint
for routing Path 1 and Path 2 program processed video or selected-input
reclocked to an SDI output. Also selects Path 1 or Path 2 as the source to
be used for the analog video (CVBS) output.
In this example:
- SDI OUT 1 set to use Path 1 Program video out
- SDI OUT 2 set to use Path 2 Program video out
- SDI OUT 4 set to use Path 1 Key Preview video out
- CVBS Out set to use Path 1 Program video out
Note: Choices shown here are examples only. Key preview available
only when equipped with +KEYER option.
Provides CVBS output parameter controls and test
pattern output controls
• CVBS Output Source Select
Selects the processing path to be sourced for the CVBS output.
• CVBS Oversampling and Color Controls
• Oversampling enables or disables video DAC oversampling.
Oversampling can improve rendering of motion for down-conversions to
the CVBS SD analog output.
• Color enables or disables chroma content in the CVBS output.
• CVBS Test Pattern Generator Control
3-12
Enables manual insertion (replacement) of CVBS output video to instead

• Framesync Enable/Disable Control
Provides master enable/disable of all device framesync functions/
controls.
• Lock Mode Select
Selects Frame Sync functions from the choices shown to the left and
described below.
• Lock to Reference: Output video is locked to external reference
received on the device REF LOOP input.
Note: If valid reference is not received, the
indication appears in the Card Info
status portion of DashBoard™, indicating invalid frame sync
reference error.
• Lock to Input: Uses the selected program video for the path as the
reference standard. Lock To Input Path selects the program video
source which is used for ref.
Note: If Lock to Input is used for framesync, any timing instability
on the input video will result in corresponding instability on the
output video.
• Free Run: Output video is locked to the device internal clock.
Output video is not locked to external reference.
• For cases where minimum latency is desired (no
framesync), Mode should be set to Lock to Input
with Framesync set to Enabled. If Disabled is
selected when using dual paths, severe video and
audio corruption can occur.
• Output Rate Select
Allows frame rate to be outputted same as input video, or converted to
from the choices shown to the left and described below.
• Auto – output video frame rate tracks with input video.
• 23.98/29.97/59.94 – forces standard North American frame rates.
Can be used to convert 24/30/60 Hz camera frame rates to
corresponding 23.98/29.97/59.94 standard North American frame

• Output Video Reference Offset Controls
With framesync enabled, provides the following controls for offsetting the
output video from the reference:
• Vertical (Lines) – sets vertical delay (in number of lines of output
video) between the output video and the frame sync reference.
(Positive values provide delay; negative values provide advance)
(Range is -1124 thru 1124 lines; null = 0 lines.)
• Horizontal (µs) – sets horizontal delay (in µs of output video) between
the output video and the frame sync reference. (Positive values provide
delay; negative values provide advance)
(Range is -64 thru 64 µsec; null = 0.000 µsec.)
Note: Offset advance is accomplished by hold-off of the
reference-directed release of the frame, thereby effectively
advancing the program video relative to the reference.
• Frame Delay Control
Minimum Latency Frames Control
• Video Delay Display
When Framesync is enabled, specifies the smallest amount of latency
delay (frames held in buffer) allowed by the frame sync. The frame sync
will not output a frame unless the specified number of frames are captured
in the buffer. The operational latency of the frame sync is always
between the specified minimum latency and minimum latency plus
one frame (not one field).
Note: Due to device memory limits, the maximum available Minimum
Latency Frames is related to the output video format selected.
When using this control, be sure to check the Report Delay display
to make certain desired amount of frames are delayed.
Displays the current input-to-output video delay (in msec units) as well as
in terms of Frames/fractional frame (in number of lines).
Status display shows total input-to-output video delay, along
with any framesync delay.
• Framesync Lock Status Display
Displays the current framesync status and reference source.
Note: Audio timing offset from video is performed using the delay controls on the Input Audio Routing/Controls tab. Refer to
Input Audio Routing/Controls (p. 3-17) for these controls.

• Dolby E: Indicates embedded channel or AES pair contains Dolby® E encoded data.
• Dolby Digital: Indicates embedded channel or AES pair contains Dolby® Digital encoded data.
Note: • Dolby status displays occur only for valid Dolby® signals meeting SMPTE 337M standard.
• AES Dolby-encoded inputs that are routed directly to device are directed via a special path that automatically bypasses SRC. However, AES inputs to other destinations (e.g., AES embedding) are first applied through SRC. These
paths disable SRC if Dolby-encoded data is detected. To avoid a possible “Dolby noise burst” if an input on these
paths changes from PCM to Dolby, it is recommended to set the AES SRC control for the pair to SCR Off for an AES
input that is expected to carry a Dolby signal.

channels or via AES embedding to the bus), aligns the embedded Dolby
data corresponding to selection. Alignment line as a result of selection is
shown in E Alignment status display.
Note: Where a frame reference is available, it is recommended to use the
Align to Reference selection. This helps ensure that the correct
alignment is achieved even if the video is user delayed or output
format is changed.

Audio Detect Events Setup Controls
(Option +QC only) Sets audio level screening and
thresholds for audio silence/presence event alerts on
embedded and/or AES discrete audio in. When an
audio events occur, the event(s) can be used by the
Presets function to invoke input routing or other
changes.
Note: Currently, Audio Detect is available only for Path 1 embedded audio and AES input audio.
Any combination of embedded and AES input channels can be selected to be screened for silence or presence. In the example
here, Audio Detect Event 1 is set to trigger if audio on any of channels Emb Ch 1 thru Ch 6 fall below the selected threshold
for an interval exceeding the selected threshold. Status indicators for each channel show silence (S) / presence (P) status based
on the configured thresholds.
Up to eight independent audio silence/presence events can be set to be screened (with descending priority of consideration from
Event 1 down to Event 8). This status here can be propagated to the Presets > Event Triggers sub-tab controls to issue a GPO,
preset engage, or other command when audio silence events are detected.
• Audio Failover Threshold sets the dBFS level at which channel content is considered to be silent, and correspondingly also
a transition back to an untriggered condition with resumption of audio for the selected embedded channels. If the selected
channels maintain levels above the selected Audio Failover Threshold, no triggering is invoked.
• Trigger Holdoff sets the period of time in which selected channel silence must occur before an Audio Silence Event trigger
goes true.
• Release Holdoff control sets the time in which the trigger is revoked upon an event false condition.
Note: • Default threshold and holdoff settings shown here are recommended for typical use.
• Selections other than Don’t Care work as an AND function. Where multiple selections are set, a true (trigger)
condition is not propagated unless all selected channels experience the configured criteria.
(In the example shown above, both channels Emb Ch 1 and Emb Ch 2 need to experience a Silence event for a
trigger to be propagated.)

Provides timecode data extraction from various
sources, and provides formatting and re-insertion
controls for inserting the timecode into the output video.
Timecode
Note: • Timecode tab has identical independent controls for both Path 1 and Path 2 using the Path 1 / Path 2 sub-tabs.
Therefore, only the Path 1 controls are shown here. Set controls for other path using the respective sub-tab.
• SMPTE embedded timecode controls and processing are correlated only to the path selected. Timecode data cannot
be transferred from one path stream to another.
Shown below is an example in which received 525i 5994 SDI video with VITC waveform timecode is being processed to output
ATC_VITC timecode. To re-format and insert the timecode data, the following can be performed using the Timecode function.
Each Timecode control is fully described on the pages that follow.

Audio LTC controls described below only appear on devices with +LTC licensed optional feature. This feature
allows audio LTC from an audio channel to be used as a timecode source, with conversion to a selected SMPTE 12M format on the
output video.
• Timecode Source Status Displays
Displays the current status and contents of the four supported external
timecode formats shown to the left.
• If a format is receiving timecode data, the current content (timecode
running count and line number) is displayed.
• If a format is not receiving timecode data, Not Present is displayed.
Selects source to be used by device to receive LTC as listed below.
• RS-485 over COM1 or COM 2
• Audio LTC over Emb Ch 1 thru Ch 16
• Audio LTC over AES Ch 1 thru Ch 16
• Audio LTC over Analog audio Ch 1 thru Ch 4
• LTC Input Control
Note: • Audio LTC Source must be appropriately set for device to
receive and process received LTC.
• If COM 1 or COM 2 is used for LTC receive, the port function must
be set for LTC. See COMM Ports Setup Controls (p. 3-56) for
more information.
• Device audio inputs will not center inputs with DC offset. If input
has DC offset, the source may need to be capacitively coupled to
remove the offset.
• LTC embedded channel selections are only channels associated
with the selected path.
•
•
•
• Mute LTC Control
Allows LTC audio or RS-485 output to mute upon loss of selected
timecode inputs.
• When set to Enabled and input timecode is lost:
• RS-485 LTC output goes to frozen state.
• Audio LTC output mutes.
• When set to Disabled and input timecode is lost:
• RS-485 LTC output keeps counting, with count value being free-run
count.
• Audio LTC output is not muted, with count value being free-run
count.
Note: If muting upon loss of a particular input format is desired, set all
Source Priority 1 thru 4 to that particular input format. If this is not done,
the failover timecode selection may substitute another format choice for
the format not being received.
• Incoming ATC Packet Removal Control
Enables or disables removal of existing input video ATC timecode packets
from the output. This allows removal of undesired existing timecodes from
the output, resulting in a “clean slate” where only desired timecodes are
then re-inserted into the output. (For example, if both SDI ATC_VITC and
ATC_LTC are present on the input video, and only ATC_LTC is desired,
using the Removal control will remove both timecodes from the output.
The ATC_LTC timecode by itself can then be re-inserted on the output
using the other controls discussed here.)
Note: Set this control to Enabled if Free-Run timecode is to be used. If
incoming packets are not removed, output embedded SMPTE timecode
may alternate between free-run and embedded SMPTE timecode values.

• Source Priority
Selects the priority assigned to each of the four supported external
formats, and internal Free Run in the event the preferred source is
unavailable.
Source Priority 1 thru Source Priority 4 select the preferred format to be
used in descending order (i.e., Source Priority 2 selects the second-most
preferred format, and so on. See example below.)

Reference VITC
(2nd priority)
In this example, Input VITC 1st priority selection selects SDI VITC (received on
SDI input) over reference VITC (received on frame reference) regardless of video
input material source to be processed by the device.
The selected timecode source is embedded on the SDI video output (in this
example, 720p) using the selected line number. In this example, if the SDI VITC
on the SDI input becomes unavailable, the device then uses the reference VITC
data received on the frame reference.
Note: Set Incoming ATC Packet Removal Control to Enabled if Free-Run
timecode is to be used. If incoming packets are not removed, output
embedded SMPTE timecode may alternate between free-run and
embedded SMPTE timecode values.
Disable Output setting should be used with care. If Disable Output is selected with alternate intended format(s) set as a
lower priority, the device will indeed disable all timecode output should the ordinate preferred format(s) become
unavailable.
Typically, choices other than Disable should be used if a timecode output is always desired, with Disable only being used
to remove all timecode data.
In this example, even though
and ATC_LTC could be
available to substitute for
ATC_VITC not being present,
the device will revert to no
timecode output since the
choice of Disable Output
“out-prioritizes” ATC_LTC
with these settings.
• Offset Controls
The choices shown here
will allow ATC_LTC to
“out-prioritize” Disable
Output if ATC_VITC is
not available.
Allows the current timecode count to be advanced or delayed on the
output video.
• Offset Advance or Delay selects offset advance or delay.
• Offset Field delays or advances or delays timecode by one field.
• Offset Frame delays or advances or delays timecode by up to 5
frames.
Note: Default settings are null, with both controls set at zero as shown.

as follows:
• Output status OK (in this example, SDI VITC timecode received and
outputted).
• Timecode Insertion button set to Disabled; output insertion disabled.
Note: • If timecode is not available from Source Priority selections
performed, timecode on output reverts to Free Run (internal
count) mode.
• Because the 1’s digit of the display Frames counter goes from 0 to

Audio LTC output is routed to desired embedded, AES, or analog audio
outputs using the Output Audio Routing/Controls (p. 3-28). Whatever
timecode is displayed on the Output Status is converted to audio LTC and
available as an LTC audio output.
Note: • Although the output line drop-down on the controls described below will allow a particular range of choices, the actual
range is automatically clamped (limited) to certain ranges to prevent inadvertent conflict with active picture area
depending on video format. See Ancillary Data Line Number Locations and Ranges (p. 3-9) for more information.
• Conflicts on a given line number are not checked. Make certain the selected line is available and carrying no other data.
• SD VITC Waveform Insertion Controls
For SD output, enables or disables SD VITC waveform timecode insertion
into the output video, and selects the VITC1 and VITC2 line numbers (6
thru 22) where the VITC waveform is inserted.
Note: • If only one output line is to be used, set both controls for the same
line number.
• SD VITC Waveform Insertion control only affects VITC
waveforms inserted (or copied to a new line number) by this
function. An existing VITC waveform on an unscaled SD SDI
stream is not affected by this control and is passed on an SDI
output.
• SD ATC Insertion Control
3-38
For SD output, enables or disables SD ATC_VITC timecode insertion into
the output video, and selects the line number for ATC_VITC.

• HD ATC_VITC Insertion Control
For HD output, enables or disables ATC_VITC timecode insertion into the
output video, and selects the line number for ATC_VITC1 and
ATC_VITC2.
• ATC_VITC Legacy Support Control
When enabled, accommodates equipment requiring ATC_VITC packet in
both fields as a “field 1” packet (non-toggling).
Note: Non-toggling VITC1 and VITC2 packets do not conform to
SMPTE 12M-2-2008 preferences. As such, ATC_VITC Legacy
Support should be enabled only if required by downstream
equipment.
• Free Run Timecode Controls
Allows an initial (starting) count to be applied to output video timecode
when Free Run insertion is enabled.
Note: • Initialization can only be applied when device is outputting Free
Run timecode (as shown by Output Status displaying “Free Run”).
• If failover to Free Run occurs due to loss of external timecode(s),
the Free Run count assumes its initial count from the last valid
externally supplied count.

Moving Box Insertion
Moving-box insertion can serve as a dynamic raster
confidence check even in cases where the input video
image is static or lost.
Note: Moving Box tab has identical independent controls for both Path 1 and Path 2 using the Path 1 / Path 2 sub-tabs.
Therefore, only the Path 1 controls are shown here. Set controls for other path using the respective sub-tab.
Moving-box insertion provides dynamic
display even on static video. Attributes
such as box size, color, vertical
movement speed, and horizontal
movement speed are all user
configurable.
Moving box can be set to insert
continuously, or only upon loss of input.
• Moving Box Insertion Controls
Selects the rules for moving-box overlay insertion into output video.
Note: If moving-box insertion is desired for input LOS conditions, the
Framesync On Loss of Video control for the selected path must
be set to provide a raster (from one of the choices shown) to
support the moving-box insertion.
If this control is set to “Disable Outputs”, no raster or moving-box
insertion will be present on the output video under input LOS
conditions. See Framesync (p. 3-13) for more information.
• Moving Box Size Controls
Sets size of box image burn-in as follows:
• Moving Box Width sets the width (as a percentage of maximum
available raster width. (Range is 0% thru 40%)
• Moving Box Height sets the height (as a percentage of maximum
available raster height. (Range is 0% thru 40%)
Note: • Moving box sizing for a given raster format may not be
appropriate for another format (especially if transitioning from HD

Alpha Threshold keying allows cost-effective luminance keying
from low-cost generic file-based graphic sources. With the graphic
source applied to both the Key and Fill inputs, the Key Alpha and
Key Threshold controls can be set to easily optimize the key/fill as
shown below.
Key Threshold setting, when reduced, more readily
allows the key/fill input to assert itself over more
variations of program video luma levels. In the
example to the right, progressively reducing the
threshold setting allows more of the key/fill to assert
iteslf over the program video.
Key Alpha setting, when increased, increases the
opacity of the key/fill. In the example to the right,
progressively increasing the alpha setting increases
the key/fill opacity.
When both settings are optimized, the key/fill
appears consistent in opacity and free from edge
distortions or graphic bleed lines appearing in the

On the COM Routing tab, select Audio Data Extractor
to extract and route the received SMPTE 337 data to the
desired COM port, noting bit rate, protocol, and parity
settings. (See COMM Ports Setup Controls (p. 3-56))
When data is successfully being de-embedded, the status
display shows green and indicates the bit rate (bit rate is bit
rate configured on sending end; typically SMPTE 337 data
transfer is much faster than serial)
Notes: • Embedded channel pair selected must be a standard boundary pair (e.g., 1/2, 3/4 and so on).
• SMPTE 337/338/339 embedded pair carrying non-PCM data here is marked as “Non-PCM Data Unknown”. Any intermediate devices between
the Cobalt sending card/device and the Cobalt receiving card/device will transfer this data intact, as long as these devices can transfer in a
bit-accurate manner. Most devices capable of carrying Dolby® streams are capable of this. However, any intermediate devices must have
functions such as PCM level controls and SRC disabled.

ports for LTC or ANC functions, and setting comm
protocol for each port.
COMM Ports Setup Controls
Note: • COM 1 and COM 2 sub-tabs provide independent controls for COM1 and COM2. Therefore, only the COM 1 controls
are described here.
• Controls provided here allow highly detailed setup of serial communications. Control settings must be carefully
considered and set appropriately to correspond to both sending and receiving systems. Incorrectly set controls may
result in loss of ANC serial comm.
• COM 1 and COM 2 are multi-function interfaces and must be set for ANC Data Extractor for port(s) is to be used here.
Set the port function as described in COM Routing in COMM Ports Setup Controls (p. 3-56).
• COM Mode (Protocol)
Selects serial comm protocol for the respective port as RS-232 or
RS-485.
Note: Protocol choices should consider the payload to be carried.
Typically, LTC is sent or received using only RS-485 serial
protocol.
• COM Port Tx Routing Function
Selects port function for the respective port as LTC Encoder input or
output, or ANC Data Extractor / Audio (SMPTE 337) non-PCM input
or output.
• Rx/Tx Status Display
Shows either no data received/sent, or where transfer is present shows
data rate (in kbit/sec).
• Insertion Mode Control
Where data is being inserted (received), sets the insertion as follows:
• Insert Any Data Received: Insert all received data with no regard
for packet size.
• Fixed Length Packet: Sets receive to wait and accumulate
n-number of packet bytes (as set using Insertion Fixed Packet
Size control) before inserting data.
• Break-Defined Packet: Device receiver looks for character-defined
break from source being received to define breaks.
• Insertion Flow Control
Allows communication between device receive and sending source to
regulate data receive as follows:
• No Flow Control: Data is received without buffering or checking to
see if data is being received faster than it can be inserted.
• XON / XOFF: The device UART Tx will tell the sending source
whether it can or cannot accept data at current bit rate.
• Hold Break: Device, if close to not being able to accept new data,
tells the sending source to hold, and releases this hold when the
device is again able to accept new data.

• Insertion Sync Byte Control
Allows use of a sync byte from device receiver back to sending source to
synchronize communication between device receive and sending source
as follows:
• Disabled: No special synchronization.
• Field Number at SOF: The device sends a single byte telling
sending source when start of field 1 or field 2 is occurring.
• Ack on Insertion: Device sends a single byte back to sending
source when data has been inserted.
• Extraction Mode Control
Where data is being extracted from input video, sets the data to be sent
as follows:
• Payload Only: Sends payload only (for example, for closed
captioning this would be only the ASCII character string
representing the CC content).
• Full Anc Data Packet: Sends the entire packet, including payload,
DID, SDID, and any handling or marking characters.
• Extraction Flow Control
Allows communication between device transmit and receiving
destinations to regulate data receive as follows:
• No Flow Control: Data is transmitted without buffering or checking
to see if data is being transmitted faster than it can be received.
• XON / XOFF: The device UART Rx will acknowledge from the
receiving system whether it can or cannot accept data at current bit
rate.
• Hold Break: Device, if receiving notification from the receiving
system that it is close to not being able to accept new data, tells the
device to hold. Device releases this hold when the receiving system
removes the break command, indicating destination is now ready
again to accept new data.
• Bit Rate/ Parity Gen Control
For both Rx and Tx, sets UART for bit rate and parity as follows:
• Bit Rate: Sets Tx/Rx bit rate from 1 of 5 speeds ranging from 9600
to 230400 Baud.
• Parity: Sets device Rx to expect odd or even parity from incoming
data, and sets device Tx to generate a parity bit to satisfy selected
parity. Where parity is set, incoming data not conforming to parity
selection is rejected.

one-button restore of factory default settings.
Also provides event-based loading allowing a defined
preset to be automatically engaged upon various
received signal status. Also provides automated Email
alerts when an event has occurred.
Presets
• Preset Layer Select
Allows selecting a functional layer (or “area of concern”) that the preset is concerned with. Limiting presets to a layer or area of
concern allows for highly specific presets, and masks changing card settings in areas outside of the layer or area of concern.
Default All setting will “look” at all card settings and save all settings to the defined preset with no masking.
Selecting a layer (in the example, “In Audio
Routing”) will set the preset to only “look at” and
“touch” audio routing settings and save these
settings under the preset. When the preset is loaded
(recalled), the card will only “touch” the audio routing
layer.
Example: Since EAS audio routing can be
considered independent of video proc settings, if
normal audio routing was set up with a particular
video proc setting in effect, and at a later time EAS audio routing is desired to be saved and invoked as a preset, selecting
In Audio Routing here tells the preset save and load to not concern itself with video proc settings. In this manner, any video proc
settings in effect when the EAS preset is invoked will not affect any video proc settings that might be currently in effect.
• Preset Enter/Save/Delete
Locks and unlocks editing of presets to prevent accidental overwrite as
follows:
• Protect (ready): This state awaits Protected and allows preset Save/
Delete button to save or delete current settings to the selected preset.
Use this setting when writing or editing a preset.
• Protected: Toggle to this setting to lock down all presets from being
inadvertently re-saved or deleted. Use this setting when all presets
are as intended.
• Create New Preset: Field for entering user-defined name for the preset
being saved (in this example, “IRD Rcv122”).
• Save: Saves the current settings under the preset name defined above.
Protected state –
changes locked out
Ready (open) state –
changes can be applied
• Preset Save/Load Controls
• Select Preset: drop-down allows a preset saved above to be
selected to be loaded or deleted (in this example, custom
preset “IRD Rcv122”).
•
•
•
• Load Selected Preset button allows loading (recalling) the
selected preset. When this button is pressed, the changes
called out in the preset are immediately applied.
• Delete Selected Preset button deletes the currently selected
preset.
• Load Factory Defaults button allows loading (recalling) the
factory default preset. When this button is pressed, the
changes called out in the preset are immediately applied.
Note: Load Factory Defaults functions with no masking. The
Preset Layer Select controls have no effect on this
control and will reset all layers to factory default.
• Download Presets saving the preset files to a folder on the

Provides event-based loading allowing a defined action
to be automatically engaged upon various received
signal status. Actions can be “canned” control
commands or user-defined by going to a user preset.
Event Triggers
• Event based preset loading is not passive and can result in very significant and unexpected control and signal
processing changes if not properly used. If event based presets are not to be used, make certain the Event Based
Loading button is set to Disabled.
• Because event based preset loading can apply control changes by invoking presets, loading conditions cannot be
nested within a called preset (event-based loading settings performed here cannot be saved to presets, although the
settings are persistent across power cycles).
Event triggers allow a variety of event screening criteria, and in turn provide an Event Action “go to” in response to the detected
event(s). For each screened criteria, categories can be set as “Don’t Care” or set to specific criteria to broaden or concentrate
on various areas of concern.
• The Event based loading button serves as a master enable/disable for the function.
• Go-to Event Actions can be user-defined presets, “canned” (hard-coded) selections (such as GPO triggers or routing
changes), or automated E-mail alert to a respondent (see Email Alerts (p. 3-63) for setting up e-mail alerts).
• Each Event (Event 1 thru Event 32) can be set to screen for any or several Definer criteria as shown in the example below.
Up to 32 separate events can be defined.
• Event 1 thru Event 32 are arranged with Event 1 having the highest priority, descending down to Event 32. Where multiple
event screening is enabled, lower-priority events are serviced first, with the highest-priority event being the final event serviced
and last action taken as well as last item logged in the Event History (see below). This helps ensure that a lower-priority event
does not mask detection of higher-priority event(s).
• The Status indicator and message shows the activation status of each Event. Green indicator means event is currently
engaged.
Event Definers
Each event can be uniquely set up for any of the condition types in these columns. Unless set
to Don’t Care, all defined conditions will need to be true in order for the Event to be considered
active
•
•
•
Note: Event criteria settings in any row comprise an AND function. Where multiple criteria are selected, a true (trigger) condition
is not propagated unless all specified criteria are true. To independently screen for multiple criteria, rows should be set up
where each criteria is screened in its own Event row. Examples of this are shown on the following pages.
The Event History log shows any triggered
events in groups of five most recent events
(newest at the top).
In the example here, log shows Event 2 as the
most recent event, and its user-selected action
of GPO 1 Close.
Pressing the Force Event Refresh button

In the example here for Event 1, the Video Quality Events tab is set to screen for frozen video on Input A. When detected, this
status can be used here (Video Quality set to “Input A Event Engaged” indicating black or frozen video detected). Using the Event
Action selector, go-to action of “go to B” can be invoked (which in this example is a user preset that changes card routing to use
an alternate input source).
Conversely, to go back to the original source, an event could be set up with Video Quality here looking for “Input A Event
Disengaged” and in turn invoke an event action returning routing to the original video source (in this example, user preset
“normal path A”).
In the example here, Event 1 and Event 3 are respectively set for frozen video and closed captioning absence detection. Using
separate Event rows for Video Quality and ANC Data (closed-captioning absence) screening allows these conditions to be
independently detected and acted upon with user actions tailored to the event (when either of the conditions are detected,
different actions can be taken as selected).
In this example, frozen video calls a preset using an input video routing change, while loss of closed captioning calls a preset
to burn a “no CC” message on the raster. Both Events 1 and 3 have corresponding go-to actions to resume normal operation
when the event ceases (in this example, a preset “normal path A”).
Note: • Screened conditions are triggered upon start of event. Any event-based setup must be done in advance of the
triggering event in order for event to be detected.
• If a desired user preset does not appear in the Event Action drop-down, press the DashBoard Refresh button
at the bottom of the page to update the list in the drop-down.
• Loss of true conditions does not disengage an event-based triggering. A new set of true conditions must be
defined and then occur to transition from one event-based trigger to another.
• Time required to engage an event-based trigger depends upon complexity of the called preset. (For example,
a preset that invokes a video change will take longer to engage than a preset involving only an audio routing
change.)
• Make certain all definable event conditions that the card might be expected to “see” are defined in any of the
Event 1 thru Event 32 rows. This makes certain that the card will always have a defined “go-to” action if a
particular event occurs. For example, if the card is expected to “see” a 720p5994 stream or as an alternate, a
525i5994 stream, make certain both of these conditions are defined (with your desired go-to presets) in any two
of the Event 1 thru Event 32 condition definition rows.
• Event Actions defined using user presets must be used with care to prevent conditions that could cause looping
or the removal or “override” of desired expected settings. When using presets, the Preset Layer selection
should be used such that only required aspects are touched (for the example above, the preset “no-cc-msg”
should be set to only touch the character burner layer to invoke a character burn).
• Where multiple event screening is set up, the event you consider to be the highest priority should be set as
higher priority than lesser events (as shown in the example above where Video Quality screening trumps CC
absence). Also, this prioritization helps ensure that all desired events are screened for before a significant
change (such as input video source change) is effected.

User States is a special column which allows a logic state to be set (similar to a register or latch) whenever a defined condition
is first triggered. A user state (which is latched until cleared by some other definable action) can be sucessively used with other
user states, thereby allowing a final action to be invoked only when subordinate user states have been sequentially satisfied as
true.
In the example here, two independent units are used for an EAS alert input (one box supplies alert key video, and the other
supplies automated alert audio). Both communicate their ready signal each using edge-trigger GPO’s which are fed to the
respective GPI 1 and GPI 2 on the device. Because these two boxes are independent and cannot be relied upon to provide
coinciding triggers, a chain of user state definers are used here to engage a preset routing key video and EAS audio routing
when both states from both boxes are true in the order of GPI 1 first and then GPI 2 second for this example.

GPI 1 (key) cue falling-edge sets user state 1
GPI 2 (audio) cue falling-edge sets user state 2
User state 2 (which requires user state 1 being true
first) sets state 3, which then invokes a preset to load
settings to route EAS key and audio
When either GPI 1 or GPI 2 has a rising-edge trigger
(cease EAS), user states 1 or 2 are cleared, thereby
clearing user state 3. Either state change calls a
preset to revert to normal operation.

• Firmware Upgrade Controls
Firmware upgrade controls allow a selected firmware version (where
multiple versions can be uploaded to the device internal memory) to
invoke an upgrade to a selected version either instantly, or set to install on
the next device reboot (thereby allowing upgrade downtime to be
controlled at a scheduled point in time).
Note: The page/tab here allows managing multiple firmware versions saved on the . New upgrade firmware from our web site
can always be directly uploaded to the device without using this page. Instructions for firmware downloading to your
computer and uploading to the device can be found at the Support>Firmware Downloads link at
www.cobaltdigital.com.
1. Access a firmware upgrade file from a network computer by clicking Upload at the
bottom of DashBoard.
2. Browse to the location of the firmware upgrade file (in this example, My
Documents\v1.0.0019.bin).
3. Select the desired file and click Open to upload the file.
• Immediate firmware upload. The default setting of Automatically Reboot
After Upgrade checked allow a selected firmware version to be immediately
uploaded as follows:
1. Click Firmware To Load and select the desired upgrade file to be loaded (in
this example, “v1.0.0019”).
2. Click Load Selected Firmware. The device now reboots and the selected
firmware is loaded.
• Deferred firmware upload. With Automatically Reboot After Upgrade
unchecked, firmware upgrade loading is held off until the device is manually
rebooted. This allows scheduling a firmware upgrade downtime event until
when it is convenient to experience to downtime (uploads typically take about
60 seconds).
1. Click Firmware To Load and select the desired upgrade file to be loaded (in
this example, “v1.0.0019”). Note now how the display shows “Installs on

Front Panel User Menus
Front Panel User Menus
All of the mode and parametric controls available using the web UI (as
described in BBG-1022-2FS Function Menu List and Descriptions) are
available using the front panel display and arrow navigating buttons. Table
3-3 lists the menu structure and identifiers for these functions, along with
page references for detailed information about the functions and its controls.
The front panel menus offers a true standalone means to configure the
BBG-1022-2FS with no connection to a network required, and is useful where
changes need to be done immediately (or in emergency situations) without the
benefit of network access. However, the web GUI provides greatly simplified
user interfaces as compared to using this menu and the arrow controls. For
this reason, it is strongly recommended that the web GUI Remote Control be
used for all applications other than the most basic cases.
Note:
• When a setting is changed using either the menu described here or the web
GUI remote control, settings displayed are the settings as effected by the
device itself and reported back to the remote control; the value displayed at
any time is the actual value as set on the device.
• Items other than status displays have an additional submenu where a
selection for the item can be made. Some submenu items listed in Table 3-3
have additional nested submenus (denoted by *). These multiple-level
submenus are not listed here; refer to the referenced page number for more

Troubleshooting
Basic Troubleshooting Checks
Failures of a general nature (affecting many devices and/or functions
simultaneously), or gross inoperability errors are best addressed first by
performing basic checks before proceeding further. Table 3-4 provides basic
system checks that typically locate the source of most general problems. If
required and applicable, perform further troubleshooting in accordance with
the other troubleshooting tables in this section.
Table 3-4
Basic Troubleshooting Checks
Item
Checks
Verify power presence and
characteristics
• On the BBG-1022-2FS, in all cases when power is being properly supplied
all indicators should be illuminated. Any device showing no illuminated
indicators should be cause for concern.
• Check the Power Consumed indication for the BBG-1022-2FS. This can be
observed using the Status front-panel or web UI pane.
• If display shows no power being consumed, either the frame power
supply, connections, or the BBG-1022-2FS itself is defective.
• If display shows excessive power being consumed (see Technical
Specifications (p. 1-12) in Chapter 1, “Introduction”), the BBG-1022-2FS
may be defective.
Check Cable connection
secureness and connecting
points
Make certain all cable connections are fully secure (including coaxial cable
attachment to cable ferrules on BNC connectors). Also, make certain all
connecting points are as intended. Make certain the selected connecting
points correlate to the intended device inputs and/or outputs. Cabling
mistakes are especially easy to make when working with large I/O modules.
Check status indicators and
displays
On BBG-1022-2FS front panel and web interface indicators, red indications
signify an error condition. If a status indicator signifies an error, proceed to the
following tables in this section for further action.
Troubleshoot by
substitution
All devices can be hot-swapped, replacing a suspect device with a
known-good item.
