Network Connection Through Receiver Port


Overview

In situations where only a single network wire is available from the rack location to a display location, the same network cable that carries audio/video traffic to a Just Add Power Receiver can be used to carry data traffic to some devices at the display location. Additional network wires can be connected to a 509POE through the network output, or to an unmanaged network switch.


Capabilities

A Receiver port is capable of providing:

  • Internet access - Smart TV features
  • Direct IP control - the driver input must use the IP address for the display

A Receiver port is NOT capable of providing:

  • "Discovery" connections - Sonos app, IP scanners, things that require the devices to be on the same subnet
  • Wireless access points - These will work, but connected devices will be on the Just Add Power subnet and not have easy access to data network devices
  • Control system interfaces - this may be possible, but it would need to be setup as if the interface is on a separate, routed network compared to the processor

The device connected to the loopout must have a Gigabit ethernet port to ensure full communication. 10/100M links may provide slower connections and intermittent connectivity.

A Transmitter port is NOT capable of providing data traffic to any devices. A Transmitter port can only be connected to a Transmitter.


Setup

  1. Connect the Receiver to a Receiver port on the switch (or to the unmanaged switch that leads back to a Receiver port)
  2. Connect the display-side device to the network output of the Receiver (or to the unmanaged switch)
  3. Assign a static IP to the display-side device according to the table below, or enable DHCP on a Receiver to have the IP assigned automatically. NOTE: For Direct IP Control, a static IP is required.
