Description

Control Center - System

The System page of Control Center contains the most common configuration settings for DiVA, HMP300, and HMP350 players, grouped under the following sections:

  • Configuration Backup
    Allows generating or restoring a configuration backup.
  • Identity
    Allows configuring the device name, which is used to identify the player within the web interface and within "Devices" view of Elementi. The device name can only contains ASCI characters, the hyphen (-) and the underscore (_).
  • Time Zone
    Allows configuring the time zone of the player (by default, this is set to Zürich time zone). Selecting a correct time zone is important when displaying clocks or using schedules on the player.
  • Date & Time
    Allows the user to choose between automatic time from the internet using public NTP servers, or manual date & time settings.
  • Hardware Settings
    Here you can find the current internal board temperature of the device and you can switch the shutdown temperature level between "Normal" to "Maximum".
  • Saved Passwords
    Allows configuring credentials to be used by the player when accessing resources from remote servers requiring authentication. See more details below.
  • Cockpit
    Allows setting the player to be monitored with Cockpit. Upon clicking on the "Monitor with Cockpit" button, the player is automatically added to the user's Cockpit account. 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.

Hardware Settings

System > Hardware Settings

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.
  • "Maximum"
    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.


Setting the shutdown temperature to "Maximum" might have as result an external case temperature exceeding 50°C / 120°F and therefore, touching the player case might provoke an injury - you should handle the external case with caution!

Saved Passwords

Saved Passwords

"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:

  1. 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).
  2. If you need additional servers, click the "Add" button.
  3. 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.
