Troubleshooting

If you have not been able to connect to your HMP unit, please read the following suggestions before contacting the SpinetiX support team.

  1. Double check the connectivity in your setup (cables, connectors, switches...).
    1. Direct cable connection - if your PC supports Gigabit Ethernet then use an Ethernet cable, otherwise use an Ethernet crossover cable.
    2. Indirect cable connection - use a switch and two Ethernet cables.
  2. Check the network configuration of your PC.
    • Note that your PC might indicate that only limited network connectivity is available. This will not prevent you from connecting to the HMP.
    • It is recommended to have the Bonjour™ client installed on your PC. Installing Elementi / HMD will also install the Bonjour client, otherwise you can download the Bonjour™ installer from the Apple website (despite the name the installer has the full Bonjour™ service). On Mac OS X, Bonjour™ is already installed as part of the operating system.
  3. Double check that you have correctly written the right address on your web browser.
  4. Check the LED on your HMP unit:
    • The SYS LED on DiVA, SYS LED on HMP300/HMP350, SYS LED on HMP200 or HMP LED on HMP130 should be blinking green.
    • On an HMP200: If the Network LED is green with a regular orange flash, this indicates that the device is configured for DHCP but has not received an address.
    • On an HMP130 / HMP100: If the LED is blinking from orange to red once per second, this indicates that the device is configured for DHCP but has not received an address.
    • In these cases, the HMP is using an auto-configured IP in the range 169.254.1.0-169.254.254.255, the IP of your PC must be in the same range (you might need to manually change the IP configuration of your PC).
  5. Verify that the web browser does not have a Proxy configured.
  6. If your player is displaying "Recovery mode" on the screen and/or the LED is not displaying as described above, then the player is in Recovery mode and may use a different IP. Check the Network access in Recovery mode page for details.

If you have checked all the above and the player web interface still cannot be accessed, contact SpinetiX Support.
