You can manually start and stop the server by pressing the Start/Stop button.
When stopping the server, note that if any devices are connected to this PC,
those connections will be closed. They can of course be reestablished by the
device(s) once the server is restarted.

Note: When selecting any online video, it may take up to 10 seconds or longer before video
starts showing on your television. Certain devices also show no indication that video
is loading, so you should wait to see if the video does start playing. Having a faster
broadband connection and/or PC will help reduce this buffering time.

You can also disable or enable PlayOn from running automatically when
Windows starts, as well as show an optional icon in the system tray, which
allows you to see the status of the PlayOn server, and to open PlayOn Settings
through a right-click menu option.

PlayOn Settings
A number of options can be configured in PlayOn Settings. Also, PlayOn
Settings is a good place to start looking for help when you are experiencing
technical problems. Go to your PC and open Start Menu / All Programs /
PlayOn / PlayOn Settings, and review the available options.
Some key points of interest are the PlayOn Media Server running status on the
General tab, the System Check tab, and the Mobile Access tab.

PlayOn UPnP Server Status


The status of the PlayOn UPnP server can be seen in PlayOn Settings as well. If
the server is running, it allows devices to connect to this PC. You can left-click
the status panel to force PlayOn Settings to determine the status of the server.
The various status messages are described below:

User Guide

Searching: A search is still being performed. Wait for it to finish.


Running: The PlayOn server is running correctly with no errors detected.
Not Running: The PlayOn server is not running.
Not Found: The PlayOn server could not be discovered on the network.
Check firewall settings if you think it should be running.

No Service: The MediaMall service is not enabled. You can enable this
service in Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services.
No SSDP: The SSDP Discovery Service on this PC is disabled. Without
it, PlayOn Settings cannot detect the PlayOn server. You can enable this
service in Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services.
Error: An error occurred when trying to detect the server status. Contact
support for assistance. See below for more information.

If you are experiencing latent or choppy video playback while using PlayOn,
you may want to modify the performance settings to a lower value. This can
be especially useful if either your PC processor is a bit slow, or if you are using
a home wireless network or broadband connection that is not fast enough. A
higher performance setting will attempt to preserve the quality of the videos
that are pulled in from the Internet, but will tax your computer and network
more. It is recommended that you use the Auto setting, as this allows PlayOn
to determine which quality setting works best for your setup. If the automatic
setting still doesnt work, try Low or Medium to see if this helps. You can also
use this setting to force PlayOn to always use a High or Max setting if you are
confident your internet and PC speeds are always sufficient.

Resuming Playback
You can configure PlayOn to either always fully process every video you start to
watch from your device, or to end processing shortly after you stop or pause a
video. This may be useful for users who prefer their PC to not allocate resources
to PlayOn when they stop or pause a video before it finishes. Allowing all
videos to be fully processed gives you the option in most situations to resume
playback for the most recently played video, but will tax your PC processor until
the entire video has been downloaded and converted.

Parental Controls
Some content providers have MPAA or FCC TV rated media, and offer the
opportunity for the user to filter their content based on parental controls. By
enabling the Enable parental controls checkbox, you can select a maximum
allowed rating for movies and television programming, as well as decide to
block unrated content. It is important to note that some content providers may
not comply with these settings. User discretion is advised.

User Guide

Initializing: The PlayOn server is still initializing. Click the status panel to
restart the search.

Video Performance

FusionLink

Make sure your Entone device has a network connection to the same router
that your PlayOn PC is connected to, and has the latest system software update
installed. For more information about upgrading your devices system software,
see below.

67

FusionLink

Home Network performance

You can manually check for new updates to PlayOn by pressing the Check
Now button in the Software Updates section. If the Check automatically
checkbox is enabled, then the PlayOn installation will regularly detect if there
are new updates available, and inform the user with a balloon notification from
the system tray.

Your home network, or LAN (local area network), must be fast enough to handle
the throughput of sending videos from your PlayOn PC to your device. If you
are using wireless 802.11g, this will in most cases be a bottleneck, especially if
the PC is on wireless. We highly recommend that the PC be on an 802.11n or
wired connection.

PC Specifications and Security Software

PC Free Hard Drive

A number of factors can prevent PlayOn from running optimally, and in more
severe cases, can even block PlayOn entirely. The main factors that can interfere
with PlayOn are listed below. Note also that in some cases, changing your
Performance setting (see below) can help remedy issues you may have with
playback.

Since PlayOn needs to convert most online videos to a video format that the
devices can understand, you need extra hard disk space to temporarily handle
the video conversion. We recommend a minimum of 4 GB of free space. Note
that the current version of PlayOn requires that this free disk space be on the
same partition where Windows is installed.

Antivirus and Firewall Software

Free space is very important. Some Netflix movies and other long videos can
take up to 4 GBs on their own. This space is used only temporarily, but if you do
not have enough free space for the video then it may stop just before the end
when PlayOn runs out of storage space.

User Guide

The vast majority of problems with installing and running PlayOn are due to
antivirus and firewall software. You may want to try temporarily disabling your
antivirus software to see if it helps fix any issues. If you have third party antivirus
or firewall security software installed, make sure that you grant full local and
online network access to the following applications:
C:\Program Files\MediaMall\MediaMallServer.exe

C:\Program Files\MediaMall\SettingsManager.exe

Note: The path to C:\Program Files\MediaMall may vary, depending on international or 64-bit
versions of Windows, or which drive partition PlayOn is installed on.

Broadband Download Speed


In order to stream real-time videos from the Internet, your broadband
connection speed must be consistently fast enough to maintain a stable
download rate. The general rule of thumb is that if you cant watch videos from
sites like YouTube, Hulu, and Netflix directly in your PC browser without seeing
a lot of buffering, then it definitely wont work in PlayOn either. We recommend
a minimum download speed of around 1.5 Mbps. In some cases, even this wont
be fast enough, depending on the stream quality for the particular media that
you are attempting to watch. Hulu recommends a speed of at least 2 Mbps for
their highest quality streams.

PC Processor Speed and RAM


The faster your PC processor (CPU) and the more memory your PC has (RAM),
the better it will be able to convert online videos and stream them to your
device. If your CPU or RAM specifications are too low, you may experience
choppy playback for videos, or the device may even show an oftentimes cryptic
error message before the video can even start to play.
Netbooks and other low power PCs may not be capable of transcoding video. It
is recommended that you have a CPU that scores at least a 500 Passmark score
(www.cpubenchmark.net)

Channels
Some channels may require you to create an account and enter your username
and password into PlayOn Settings under the Channels tab. Not all channels
require an account to use, but they may block age-restricted content if you do
not have one.

If you do not already have one, you can sign up at www.netflix.com.

It is possible to subscribe to public user feeds from YouTube accounts. Enter


each username in the field provided, separated by commas. For each username
that is entered, PlayOn will give you direct access to that users favorite and
uploaded (published) videos (up to a max of 150), as well as their playlists and
subscriptions. Note that only YouTube videos from publishers that have allowed
them to be embedded in third party sites will appear on your PlayOn device.
For more information on YouTube accounts and feeds, visit www.youtube.com.

You may also add videos to your Netflix Instant Queue from your PC web
browser (if your account has one), for easier access to your favorites through
PlayOn. If your Netflix Account does not have an Instant Queue, PlayOn will
include any Watch Instantly videos from your DVD Queue.
The basic Netflix subscription only allows for one video to be played at a time,
so PlayOn may not be able to play a video if you are already watching one
on your PC directly, or through another device. To watch two or more videos
simultaneously, you will need to upgrade your subscription to at least the 2
DVD/Unlimited streaming plan.

The Plugins tab of PlayOn Settings allows you to view and manage any
PlayOn Plugins or Scripts that you have chosen to download and install on your
PlayOn PC. We highly recommend trying out the Revision3 plugin developed
by MediaMall, available at www.playon.tv/playon/plugins, as well as a large
number of third party plugins that are available at www.playonplugins.com
and www.playonscripts.com. Any plugin or script that you have installed and
enabled through PlayOn Settings will appear as an additional video service
available through your PlayOn device. Please note that this feature is still
in development, and some changes may occur that require the plugins be
upgraded to remain compatible.
You can install plugins by dragging any .plugin file that youve downloaded
to the Plugins tab of PlayOn Settings. Note that drag and drop will not work if
you have UAC (User Account Control) enabled on your PC. You will also need to
restart PlayOn for the plugin to show up on your TV.
If Windows UAC prevents you from using the drag-and-drop method then
you can easily install the files manually. The *.plugin files need to be moved
into C:\Program Files\MediaMall\Plugins. The *.lua script files are installed
in the same way, except script files need to be moved into C:\Program Files\
MediaMall|Plugins\Scripts. Note that your path to Program Files\MediaMall
may vary if you have a 64-bit version of Windows or you installed PlayOn on a
different partition.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Video takes precedence, so this function is not allowed. Video content
comes with its own audio tracks, so if you attempt to play a video right after you
start a Music playlist, the music will stop the moment the video begins.
You can play your music with photos because there is no internal audio
accompanying a photo slideshow.

The device works with most cable service providers that support ClearQAM
or premium content with the use of a CableCARD. FusionTV does not support
LiveTV content with any satellite systems.

Why do I need an Internet connection?


Setting up a Network/Internet connection is required to use the Program
Guide and broadband-based services such as VUDU and various Web media
applications on your device. The Internet connection also allows the use of the
built in Web browser and receives software updates are downloaded directly
to the device. Without an Internet connection you will only be able to see
information in your program guide if using antenna (ATSC) as your TV source.

FAQ's

FAQ's

How can I play my own videos while my music playlist plays in the
background?

Which cable or satellite services can I use?

Can I record more than one program at the same time?


Yes. The FusionTV service allows you to record up to two High Definition
programs that start at the same time. If you are recording a program you can
watch another program while recording. If you choose to record two programs
simultaneously you will only be allowed to view one of the programs that are
being recorded or a previously recorded program.

Why cant I view or play some of my media files?

Can I use an external keyboard and mouse with the Web browser?
Yes. In fact, it is recommended for easier control and navigation. A wireless
keyboard and mouse that uses a single USB adapter (Sold separately) would be
the best solution. If you plug in a USB mouse only, use the remote INPUT button
to display the onscreen keyboard. If using a USB keyboard only, use the arrow
keys on the keyboard or the arrow keys on the remote to navigate to selections.
The USB port is located on the back of the Entone device.

your Entone device.

How do I remove a user ID set up in VUDU, so my kids cannot get


access to movies or TV shows?
The desired result to keep children from being able to order or view
inappropriate content can be accomplished by setting up VUDU Parental
Controls. You can make all purchases require the passcode you set up, or set
that up only for content rated higher than G.
You can also set the passcode to be required for viewing all content rated
higher than PG-13 (for US-based devices). This is described in the Parental
Controls section of the VUDU chapter.
The other way to do this is by resetting the device. The Reset option is located
in the Main Menu under SETTINGS, Restart & Reset, and Reset.

User Guide

How fast is my Internet connection?


Watching movies on VUDU requires a broadband Internet connection
of at least 1 Mbps. As the resolution of the movie increases, so does the
bandwidth necessary to support it. For example, if you try to watch 1080p
HDX on a 4 Mbps Internet connection, you will experience frequent
buffering, because your connection is not sufficient to support 1080p
streaming. Please see the bandwidth (i.e. speed) requirements below.

What movies can I watch on VUDU?


VUDU offers movies from all of the major Hollywood studios as well as over 50
independent studios. Major Hollywood releases are available the same day they
are released on DVD and months before you can stream them from subscription
services. VUDU also gives you the option to rent or buy movies, so you can
choose which movies you want to rent and which youd like to own.

How is your device connected to the Internet?


I am not able to rent or buy movies on VUDU?
This indicates your account has not been activated. To activate your account, go
to Activate VUDU Account.

VUDU movies are delivered over your Internet connection. As such, they can
be subject to fluctuations in your Internet connection at your Internet Service
Provider (ISP) and within your home network.

The strength of your wireless connection is dependent upon numerous


factors, including the version of wireless (e.g. G or N), the distance between
the device and the router, the building materials used in your home, and any
interference from other nearby devices.
If you are connected via a wireless network, try moving the wireless router
closer to your TV or the Entone device. You may want to use a wired
connection directly to the Entone device.
Note: If you are using a Wireless G router, you may consider upgrading to a Wireless N
router, which are widely available.
