When you first plug in the unit, it may take a few minutes to self-extract its operating system and get itself ready for use – this only happens the first time.
Once the network has been configured as outlined above you are now ready to plug in your first Vivi Receiver.
- Connect an HDMI cable from your display device to Vivi.
- Connect an Ethernet cable from the box to your network.
- Connect the power adapter (12V 1.5A DC) to the Vivi Receiver – do this last.

At this point you should see a red light on the box, and after a few start up steps, the Vivi logo and a room name will appear on the display. The display may flicker for a few seconds while the device installs and activates.
