- Configuration Backup
- Generate an archive file (7z) containing the complete configuration of that player, as well as restore such a configuration backup.
- See the full article on Configuration backup feature.
- Time Zone
- Configure the time zone of the player (by default, this is set to Zürich time zone) - this is important for content scheduling within the player web interface or within Elementi, as well as when displaying clock apps or clock widgets.
- Date & Time
- Select between automatic time from the internet using public NTP servers, or manual date & time settings.
- Hardware Settings
- Switch the shutdown temperature level between "Normal" to "Maximum". You can also find the internal board temperature of the device.
- Saved Passwords
- Configure the credentials to be used by the player when accessing resources from remote servers requiring authentication.
- Configure whether the player is monitored by Cockpit.
Under this section, you can find the current internal board temperature of the device and you can switch the shutdown temperature level between "Normal" to "Maximum".
An internal temperature sensor monitors the device internal board temperature - note that this is not the external case temperature, nor the ambient temperature. See also the Operating environment page.
When the internal board temperature reaches the selected shutdown temperature level, the device shuts down in order to cool itself down; when the internal temperature has lowered below the threshold value, the device will automatically restart.
The shutdown temperature can be set to:
- "Normal" (default value)
- This corresponds to a maximum of 55ºC / 131ºF of the internal temperature and is meant to prevent an injury when touching the player's external case.
- This corresponds to a maximum of 70ºC / 158ºF and is meant to prevent any physical damage to the player's internal components. This is usually needed when the content is complex and / or the ambient temperature is above 30ºC / 86ºF - in this case, the external case should be handled with caution to avoid injury.
"Saved Passwords" section allows the user to configure credentials to be used by the player when accessing resources from remote servers requiring authentication.
To add / modify the saved passwords, follow these steps:
- Enter the following information:
- The server URI (it can also include a path on the server if different credentials are needed for different parts of the server).
- The username & password.
- The realm (optional - used to specify different credentials based on the realm returned by the server).
- If you need additional servers, click the "Add" button.
- Click the "Apply" button to save the credentials.
To remove credentials, simply click the orange cross icon next to the credentials set, and then click the "Apply" button.
From this section you can configure whether the player is monitored by Cockpit.
To add the player into Cockpit, click the "Monitor by Cockpit" button. If no Cockpit user account is detected, then you will be redirected to the Cockpit login screen; once logged, the player will be automatically added to your account.
After that, the following buttons are shown:
- "Open in Cockpit" => opens a new browser window and loads the player dashboard.
- "Stop Monitoring" => the player stops communicating with Cockpit.
