Note Note:
Before connecting the cables, it is recommended that all devices are unplugged from the power grid.
HMP350 ports and LEDs

Step 1: Connect the screen

You need a screen with an HDMI type A (female) connector and an HDMI cable (not included).

  1. Connect one end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI port of your player.
  2. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI port of the display device.

Step 2: Connect the network

You need an Ethernet cable (not included).

  1. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port of your player.
    • The HMP350 has two Ethernet ports - any of them can be used.
  2. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to a network port (female connector) of a network switch or a computer (direct connection).
Note Warning:
The HMP does not support Power over Ethernet and any voltage on the network cable must be avoided.

Step 3: Connect the power

The player comes with a power supply unit (PSU) and a line power cable.

  1. Connect the DC power cable attached to the PSU to the DC input port of your player.
  2. Connect the line power cable to the PSU.
  3. Connect the other end of the line power cable into a power outlet.
  4. Switch on the screen and the LAN-Switch or computer.


The player's LEDs should light up at this point, sign that the player is receiving power and is starting the boot-up process. During the boot-up, a splash screen is shown on the screen, first at 640x480 resolution, then at the screen's resolution.

Once the player has finishing booting up, the SYS LED should blink green and the screen will display the player's on-screen wizard showing "Press the blue button once" in different languages.

Note Notes:
  • If the text says "Plug the network cable", then there's a network connection problem - follow these troubleshooting steps.
  • If the (PWR) LED doesn't light up at all, then the power supply unit (PSU) might be broken - try a working PSU from another SpinetiX player. Note Warning: Do not use a third-party power supply.
  • If any of the LEDs turn red, with or without blinking, then there is a problem - see LED page for more details.
  • If you cannot see anything on the screen, follow these troubleshooting steps.
