The following instructions will guide you through the setup and configuration of your Stb-tester Node. If you need any help, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Connect the Stb-tester Node as per the above diagram.
The network must allow HTTPS access to the Stb-tester Portal on the internet. It doesn’t need to be the same network that the set-top box is on.
The infrared transmitter is self-adhesive; stick it over the set-top box’s IR receiver. This is a low-power transmitter (to avoid interfering with other set-top boxes in your test farm) so it has to be close against the IR receiver. Some set-top boxes are very sensitive to the placement of the transmitter; using a torch (flashlight) can help to find the position of the IR receiver behind the set-top box’s plastic case.
If you are testing an Apple TV, Fire TV, PS3, PS4, or any other device without an infrared receiver, don’t use our USB infrared transmitter. Instead, we have supplied a CEC adapter with a USB connector and two HDMI sockets. Put the adapter in the HDMI path between Stb-tester’s HDMI input and the device-under-test’s HDMI output, as per the diagram below.
To enable CEC on the device-under-test see Device Configuration.
View your device in the Portal#
Go to the Stb-tester Portal in your web browser, and verify that:
You can see the live video from the device-under-test.
You can control the device-under-test using the on-screen remote control.
If your Stb-tester Node appears “offline” in the portal, it may not have sufficient network access to reach the portal. See our Troubleshooting page for help.
