Note Notes:

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.

See Blue button page for more details.

LED

The player has two diagnostic LEDs (power and system), plus two more integrated within the network connector - they can be used to quickly assert the status of the player.

See LED page for more details.

Enclosure / casing

Mounting

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 the temperature closely.

Identification

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 to identify the unit and it should not be removed.

Logo and printing

  • Situations may arise where labels or transfers may need to be applied to the player. This is generally not recommended by SpinetiX as the heat generation of the device may be affected.
  • There is almost no risk of a sticker or label removing the logo printed on the player; the printing process used is a special type which results in ink being protected by the outside layer of aluminum itself.
  • Any material affixed to the player must be entirely removable without a trace for the unit to remain within warranty.

Power

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

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 player does not support Power over Ethernet and any voltage on the network cable must be avoided.

Power off

See how to correctly power off DiVA.

Warranty

SpinetiX offers 3 years of Hardware Limited Warranty for DiVA products.

  • A 5-year warranty extension can be purchased separately.
  • The player has a very low probability of failure because its hardware architecture is free of moving parts. There is no official mean time between failures calculated; the component with the shortest MBTF is currently the internal memory medium - the high-quality cards used by SpinetiX are certified for at least 5 years of use by the manufacturer.
  • The warranty does not apply to the external power supply unit, nor the internal memory medium (storage). See General Terms & Conditions of Sale (Exclusions section) for more details.

Software

Operating System

The operating system is built into the device firmware and is based on the Wind River® Linux 6 distribution, with different adaptations and security patches applied specifically for SpinetiX players. The embedded operating system cannot be changed in any way and no other OS can be installed on the player.

See Security page for more details.
