Quick Start GuideTM3. Connecting your Receiver3.1 Satellite RF ConnectionYour XDS-PRO receiver is preconfigured to tune itself to the settings specified in the attached Network Configuration Data Sheet. Once the RFconnection from your downlink is properly connected and you apply AC power, the receiver should automatically tune and lock to the network carrier.If the Network Configuration Datasheet does not include a specific network, you must contact your uplink service provider network to acquire thesatellite tuning details: L-band frequency, symbol rate, and web address for the affiliate website.3.1.1 CablingWhen connecting your receiver we recommend using RG-6 and that the splitter is rated for L-Band frequencies (950-2150 MHz). Use of lower ratedequipment can result in roll off and significantly degraded signal quality. Your receiver may include an optional cable kit with these connectors.3.1.2 LNB VoltageYour receiver was shipped from the factory with the LNB voltage disabled by default. If you need the receiver to drive the LNB on your dish, you canenable it after you have powered it up from the Tuner Setup section of the front panel. Please see Appendix A for details. If you have a XDS-PROreceiver without a front panel, you can enable it after you have powered it up and connected to the web interface. Please see section 4.2.2 for details.3.2 Internet ConnectionYour network may require that the XDS-PRO receiver is always connected to a broadband connection (Internet). The broadband connection is usedby the network to remotely troubleshoot, send content to the internal storage, send commercial playback schedules, retrieve as-played logs ofcommercial insertions, and stream live audio to the receiver.3.2.1 Connecting the Receiver to your LANIf you elect to place the receiver on your local network inside of your firewall, you will connect a patch cable from your internal switch or router to theport labeled LAN-1. The receiver is set by default to obtain an IP address via DHCP. If your network does not have a DHCP server, you will need toassign it a static address through the front panel. Please see section 4.2.3 for details on manually assigning IP addresses.3.2.2 Connecting the Receiver to the WANIf you would like your receiver to access the internet directly through a DMZ connection or outside of your firewall, you will connect a patch cable tothe port labeled LAN-2 on the back of the receiver. Since main management method for the XDS-PRO receiver is the web interface, X-Digital Systemsdoes not recommend connecting it solely to the WAN. In general, access to the receiver from a PC in your LAN will be blocked if the receiver is in aDMZ zone or outside of your firewall. To assign a static IP address to the WAN, please see section Connecting the Audio PortsThe analog audio output of the XDS-PRO receivers is routed through the DB-9 connector labeled Audio-A through Audio-D on the rear panel. Thetable below details the wiring pin out for the ports:PinSignal1L OUT 2Ground3L OUT (*)4Ground5R OUT 6L OUT-7Ground (*)8L OUT- (*)9R OUT-(*) - These additional output pinsare provided for StarGuide receivercompatibility.Optional cable kit may include four matingDB-9 connectors with shells. Please seethe XDS-PRO User’s Guide for detailedspecifications on the audio output.3.4 Relay ClosuresThe XDS-PRO4 receiver has two DB-37 connectors labeled Relay-A and Relay-B on the rear panel. The XDS-PRO1 receiver has one DB-37 connectorlabeled Relay-A. These connectors contain sixteen relay/contact closures that can drive external automation systems.

On the startingscreen of the front panel or in the web interface the receiver displays the Eb/N0 (shown as EB) and AG (automatic gain shown as AG) values from thetuner. The EB value should be above 7 and AG should fall between 40 and 60. If your values do not fall within these ranges, please verify proper dishorientation and RF wiring.4.2 Verify IP Connectivity to the NOCIn order for the NOC to send programming and schedule information to your receiver, it must be able to communicate with the receiver over theinternet.4.2.1 NOC Connection Test Using Front Panel ControlsUnder the Network Setup section of the front panel there is a tool called Test NOC that will allow you to verify internet connectivity to the NOC. Pressthe 2 softkey that is labeled NOC to initiate the test.After the test completes you will either see ‘Successfully Connected to NOC’ or ‘Cannot Connect to NOC!’ If your receiver is able to connect, yoursettings are correct and you are ready to proceed with the next tests. On the other hand, if your receiver is unable to connect, you will need to adjustyour IP settings until the test is successful. You may need to check settings on the receiver or in your network including any switches, routers orfirewalls. The receiver will need to be able to communicate on TCP port 80 to the internet. Please see the next section if you need to assign thereceiver a static IP address or configure a proxy server.4.2.2 NOC Connection Test Using the Web InterfaceOn the General page of the web interface under the Status tab there is a tool named the NOC Connection Test that will allow you to verifyconnectivity to the NOC. Click the Initiate Test button and then confirm you want to start the test by clicking Begin Test.The test should take no longer than a minute or two but during this time the web interface will be unresponsive to other commands. After the testcompletes you will either see ‘NOC Connection Successful’ or ‘Cannot Connect to NOC.’ If your receiver is able to connect, your settings are correctand you are ready to proceed with the next tests. On the other hand, if your receiver is unable to connect, you will need to adjust your IP settings untilthe test is successful. You may need to check settings on the receiver or in your network including any switches, routers or firewalls. The receiver willneed to be able to communicate on TCP port 80 to the internet. Please see the next section if you need to assign the receiver a static IP address orconfigure a proxy server.R830002-2001 REV A4

TMQuick Start Guide4.2.3 Assigning a Static IP Address Using Front Panel ControlsAssigning a static IP address to either the LAN or WAN can be done from the Network Setup section of the front panel. This section allows DHCP tobe toggled, a gateway to be specified, a static IP address to be set for the LAN or WAN port, or an HTTP proxy server and port to be specified. Whenspecifying IP addresses, use the Up/Down keys to adjust the numerical values and the Left/Right keys to move between octets. The SET key willsave the specified address. Once all adjustments are complete, run the TEST NOC again to make sure the receiver is able to successfully connect tothe NOC. Please see Appendix A for help on navigating through the front panel menus.4.2.4 Assigning a Static IP Address Using the Web InterfaceAssigning a static IP address to either the LAN or WAN can be done on the General page of the web interface under the Setup tab.
