This page is about the HMP devices. For DiVA, see this page.

Introduction

The blue button of the HMP device is multi-functional, allowing to perform different operations depending on how long it is pressed and whether the HMP device is powered on or powered off during that time.

Some examples of such operations are: trigger On Screen Display (OSD), restart the HMP, shut down the HMP, reset to factory default settings, force Recovery mode.

Depending on the HMP model, the timings to perform a certain operation might be different, as detailed below.

HMP350 and HMP300

HMP350

Powered on

When power is on:

  • Briefly press and release -> to trigger On Screen Display (OSD) with IP, Firmware and identification information.
  • Hold for 3 seconds -> to trigger a shutdown of the device (wait 10-15 seconds until no video signal is displayed and the PWR LED is slowly blinking red).
    After shutting down the HMP, you can safely unplug the power supply. To restart the HMP, briefly press the blue button again.
  • Hold for 10 seconds -> to trigger a hard reboot (equivalent to a power cycle - use only if shutdown is unavailable).
  • Hold for more than 30 seconds -> this has no effect (button ignored) for the case when the button has been pressed / held down accidentally (for instance, due to bad positioning).

Powered off

When the power supply cable is unplugged, press and hold the button, plug in the power, then release the button after:

  • 10 seconds -> to reset to factory default settings (i.e. the button should be released after the SYS LED starts rapidly flashing green).
  • 20 seconds -> to trigger the Recovery mode (i.e. the button should be released after the SYS LED starts rapidly flashing red).
  • 30+ seconds -> this has no effect (button ignored) for the case when the button has been pressed / held down accidentally (for instance, due to bad positioning); the SYS LED slowly blinks red four times to indicate this situation before resuming normal operation.

HMP200

HMP200

HMP200 powered on

When power is on:

  • Briefly press and release -> to trigger On Screen Display (OSD) with IP, Firmware and identification information.
  • Hold for 3 seconds -> to trigger a shutdown of the device (wait 10-15 seconds until no video signal is displayed and the PWR LED is slowly blinking red).
    After shutting down the HMP, you can safely unplug the power supply. To restart the HMP, briefly press the blue button again.
  • Hold for 10 seconds -> to trigger a hard reboot (equivalent to a power cycle - use only if shutdown is unavailable).
  • Hold for more than 30 seconds -> this has no effect (button ignored) for the case when the button has been pressed / held down accidentally (for instance, due to bad positioning).

HMP200 powered off

When the power supply cable is unplugged, press and hold the button, plug in the power, then release the button after:

  • 15 seconds -> to reset to factory default settings (i.e. the button should be released 8 seconds after the SYS LED starts rapidly flashing green).
  • 25 seconds -> to trigger the Recovery mode (i.e. the button should be released after the SYS LED starts rapidly flashing red).
  • 30+ seconds -> this has no effect (button ignored) for the case when the button has been pressed / held down accidentally (for instance, due to bad positioning); the SYS LED slowly blinks red four times to indicate this situation before resuming normal operation.

HMP130

HMP130

HMP130 powered on

When the power is on:

  • Briefly press and release -> to trigger On Screen Display (OSD) with IP, firmware and identification information.
  • Hold for 3 seconds -> to trigger a soft reboot (has the same effect as pressing the "System Restart" button in HMP Control Center).
  • Hold for 10 seconds -> to trigger a hard reboot (it's instant and equivalent to a power cycle).
  • Hold for more than 30 seconds -> this has no effect (button ignored) for the case when the button has been pressed / held down accidentally (for instance, due to bad positioning).

HMP130 powered off

When power is off, press and hold the button, plug in the power, then release the button after:

  • 10 seconds -> to reset to factory default settings (i.e. the button should be released after the LED starts rapidly flashing green).
  • 20 seconds -> to trigger the Recovery mode (i.e. the button should be released after the LED starts rapidly flashing red).
  • 25+ seconds -> this has no effect (button ignored) for the case when the button has been pressed / held down accidentally (for instance, due to bad positioning); the LED slowly blinks red four times to indicate this situation before resuming normal operation.

HMP100

HMP100 powered on

When the power is on:

  • Briefly press and release -> to trigger On Screen Display (OSD) with IP, firmware and identification information.
  • Hold for 3 seconds -> to trigger a soft reboot (has the same effect as pressing the "System Restart" button in HMP Control Center).
  • Hold for 10 seconds -> to trigger a hard reboot (instant reboot - all the processes are immediately terminated).
  • Hold for more than 30 seconds -> this has no effect (button ignored) for the case when the button has been pressed / held down accidentally (for instance, due to bad positioning).

To boot in Recovery mode using only the blue button on the HMP100 (the power must be on all the time):

  1. Press the button for 10 seconds and then release it. This will force the HMP100 to reboot.
  2. Wait for the HMP100 to restart (approximately 2 minutes).
  3. Repeat step #1 and #2 until the HMP100 boots in Recovery mode. (Normally 3 or 4 times depending on the firmware version)

HMP100 powered off

When power is off, press and hold down the button, plug in the power and after 10 seconds release the button -> Reset to factory default settings.
