Input & outputs

DiVA interfaces

Video output

DiVA has one video output connector: an HDMI connector (type A). DiVA is a full HD device and can run up to 1080p @ 60Hz.

Audio output

DiVA outputs analogue signal on the audio output connector (3.5 mm jack) and digital audio signal on the HDMI video output connector.

USB port

DiVA has two "Hi-speed" USB 2.0 ports - currently they can only be used for updating the player firmware.

Currently, USB cellular modems (3G/4G) and USB external storage are not supported, but they might be supported in the future.

Ethernet port

DiVA features a standard Ethernet 10/100/1000 MBit/s 8P8C port (a.k.a. RJ45) compliant with IEEE 802.3ab, 802.3u and 802.3az standards.

Note Warning:
The DiVA does not support Power over Ethernet and any voltage on the network cable must be avoided.

RS232 port

DiVA features a 3-pin RS-232 serial port, but this is used only for service.

Blue button

The blue button on DiVA is multi-functional allowing to perform different operations depending on how long it is pressed and whether the DiVA device is powered on or powered off during that time - like trigger OSD information, shut down, reset to factory default settings, force Recovery mode etc., as explained below.

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 DiVA, you can safely unplug the power supply. To restart the player, 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.


The DiVA LED can be used to quickly assert the status of the player. DiVA has two diagnostic LEDs (power, system).


The PWR (power) LED is:

  • solid green (without blinking) when power is OK and the internal components are powered up;
  • solid red (without blinking) when the input voltage level is out of bounds;
  • blinking red briefly once every two seconds (i.e. on for 250ms and off for 1750ms) when the system is powered off (i.e. the shutdown is completed and DiVA can be safely unplugged from the power supply), yet DiVA is under external power (pressing the blue button turns on DiVA);
  • blinking red at 2 Hz (i.e. twice every second) when the internal temperature is over the limit and DiVA has automatically powered itself off (with automatic wake up) to cool down.


The SYS (system) LED is:

  • blinking green when DiVA is running normally (after the boot has completed);
  • blinking red four times per second when DiVA is in Recovery mode.
  • off, when the system is powered off.

Network LEDs

Ethernet port LEDs

The two LEDs present on the Ethernet port connector have the following meaning:

  • Left LED shows the network speed by changing its color, as following:
    • solid green for 1000 Mbps (Gigabit) network;
    • solid orange for 100 Mbps network;
    • off for 10 Mbps network.
  • Right LED has a yellow color and shows the network activity, as following:
    • solid color when the link is present;
    • blinks when there is link activity (i.e. network packets);
    • off when the link is not present.

Enclosure / casing


Each DiVA player has a unique serial number that is based on its MAC address. Each player has also a device name, set by default to the player serial number, displayed and configurable within the DiVA Control Center interface.

A sticker with the serial number, barcode, DiVA model and few other information can be found on the bottom side of each player. This helps identifying the unit and it should not be removed.


  • Size (W x H x D): 150 x 23 x 86.5 mm, respectively 5.9 x 0.9 x 3.4 inches
  • Weight: 346g ± 5g / 12.2oz


DiVA can be mounted using two M5 bolts - see the technical drawing above for exact coordinates of the mounting holes.

  • If the mounting surface is itself well ventilated and/or will help with heat dissipation (e.g. a separate bracket of a display mount) then the DiVA can be mounted flush with the surface, but you should monitor the temperature during use.
  • If the mounting surface is attached to another heat source (e.g. the back panel of a display) then you should use standoffs to allow air to circulate around the DiVA, and monitor temperature closely.


External power supply

  • Input: 100-240V 50-60Hz.
  • Output: 5V DC 3.6A max.
  • Case size: 88.5 L x 50 W x 34 H mm. Weight 170 g.
  • DC cord: 150cm + 175 mm
Incorrect use of a power supply or using an incorrectly rated power supply can damage your player and void the warranty.
Also, the HMP does not support Power over Ethernet and any voltage on the network cable must be avoided.

Power consumption

The typical power consumption, measured in normal conditions is 8W.

Power off

See how to correctly power off DiVA.
