UMP (Unified Media Platform)

1.2             Turning the UMP on and off



The UMP supports 3 different power states:


-         Off: the device is connected to the mains outlet, but it is in ACPI state S5

-         On: the device is powered on and operational. ACPI state S0

-         Hibernation: the device has been suspended from the On state. The session will be restored when the device is powered on again. This is equal to ACPI state S3


 Using hibernation offers the advantage that you can power the device on again by means of a USB device, though scheduled wakeups are not available.


Powering the device on can be performed in a number of ways:

-         USB device activity IF the device was in Hibernation state

-         Power Button on the front of the device

-         Wake On LAN

-         Scheduled WakeUp


Powering the device Off can be achieved by the following methods:

-         Shutdown in the Main Menu

-         Power Button on the front of the device

-         Shutdown in the Web Interface

-         Shutdown UMP in the Desktop Mode


To switch to Hibernate state you can:

-         Press the Sleep button on the remote control (UMP-R-1XX)

-         Select Hibernate UMP in the Desktop Mode

-         Select Hibernate in the Web Interface



1.2 Setting the Date and Time

To provide correct EPG information or to perform scheduled recordings, the device needs to be aware of your time settings. There are two methods to set or update the time on the device which are explained below.


 NTP (automatic)

The recommended method is to update the time automatically from a Network Time Protocol (NTP) source on the Internet. Configure the TIMEZONE parameter in the Web Interface under Settings -> Other to your country’s two digit international notation. When the settings have been applied, navigate to Plugins -> Helpers and select ‘ntp_update’, which sends a query the responsible time server.



Manual method

To set the time manually, navigate to Settings -> Device Info in the Web Interface and enter the current date and time in the entry fields at the top. Enter the desired time and date in the following format:


Time (HH:MM)                 :         ex. 14:27


Date (DD-MMM-YYYY)     :         ex. 26-May-2011


Select Save Time and Date to save the current settings. It is recommended to restart the OSD after changing the time and date.


Note that the manual time and date settings do NOT account for DST (Daylight Saving Time).
