Introduction

The type and number of USB ports varies depending on the player model:

Note Notes:
  • Video input is not supported via the USB port - video streaming can only be done via Ethernet.
  • Multiple USB devices can be connected through USB hubs to the HMP at the same time, but only one USB storage device can be used as external storage.
  • The USB ports on the player cannot be disabled, however, unless the HMP is set to look to the USB storage for content, a malicious user could not interfere with the displayed content. For fail-safe security protection of the USB port consider using a physical lock (like these USB port blockers from Lindy).

Power over USB

In line with the USB power standards, the HMP400 and HMP400W players supply up to 900mA of current at 5V ⇒ 4.5 W, while the other players supply up to 500mA of current at 5V ⇒ 2.5 W. If a device draws more than the allowed amount, the port will be shut down to protect the player.

Note Note:
Hard disks and other devices that use a double-USB connector for increased power cannot be used with the HMP (even with a hub) without external power.
