 Initial Start-Up
 When the MP is first turned on, the MP will begin to automatically cycle through different video modes every 15 seconds.  Confirm the mode that works best with your TV.

The connected TV will display a message that the "server was not found" or "this panel is not configured".  Close this dialog to proceed.

  After the video mode has been set, the next thing to do is set the IP address of the F.Series or iQ server that the MP will be working with.

Move your cursor down to the ReQuest Server IP box.  Enter the server's IP addressing using the onscreen keypad.  Click on Close then Save and your MP will reboot.  After the reboot, the MP will be configured and ready for use!

 Configuring the MP when Connected to an iQ System
Access the iQ systems web server by entering its IP address in your web browser.

Click iQ Configuration on the bottom of the page.

 Select Rooms from the drop down.

 Drag and drop the MP into a Room.  Ideally you would drag it into the room that the MP would by default control.

For installation specific settings, see Settings on MP/IMC section.
