Objective: Control a display via TCP/IP, RS-232 or CEC with the AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT
1. Login to the web GUI for the AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT and navigate to the "Setup" tab and configure.
Remote IP address
UDP Local Port
2. For RS-232 control navigate to the control tab and match the baud rate for the display you are controlling.
Baud rate Sets the baud rate. The following options are available: 9600, 19200, 38400, 56000,
Data bit Sets the number of data bits used to represent each character of data. The following
Parity Sets the parity bit, which can be included with each character to detect errors during
Stop bit Sets the stop bit. Stop bits are sent at the end of each character, allowing the client
3. Navigate to the "Command" tab and configure.
- Verify that you have the proper baud rate set in both the HDVS-300 and on the display you are controlling.
- Verify that RS-232 control is enabled on the display you are controlling
- Reverse TX and RX pins if there is no communication.
- Use a USB to RS-232 adapter and connect your computer to the RS232 port of the HDVS-300. Use an RS232 program such as Hercules to monitor if commands are coming out of the HDVS-300. If you are getting command out from the HDVS-300 then it is likely that you are using the wrong commands or there are some parameters that are incorrect for your display
- Connect your PC into the RS232 port of the display and try to control it using the RS232 program. If you are unsuccessful in controlling your display you may need to consult the display manufacturer for the proper control codes and parameters.
- Notate what commands and parameters work and input these into the HDVS-300 and connect the HDVS-300 to the display and test.
- Verify that you have the correct IP address for the display you are controlling and that the HDVS-300-KIT and display are on the same subnet.
- Verify that you have the correct control port of the display you are controlling (refer to the displays user manual or API).
- If no control, try using a terminal program such as PuTTy or Hercules to control the display directly from your PC. Please refer to Article KB01601 - Using Hercules to Confirm Whether a Display Can be Controlled via IP for more in depth explanation.
- If you are able to control the display from your PC, notate what commands and parameters worked and input them into the HDVS-300 and test.
- If you are unable to control the display from your PC contact the display manufacturer for the correct control strings and parameters to control the device.
