Scala Media Players
EDID Emulation Initiation
The EDID emulator does not initiate immediately when the Scala Media Player-Q is turned on. Wait approximately one minute before beginning configuration.
You can easily configure your monitors using the integrated hardware Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) function built-in to the Scala Media Player-Q. The EDID emulator provides both the functions of EDID override and display continuity, independent of the Windows® operating system and the device driver stack.
Configuring the integrated hardware EDID emulations requires that:
- The primary monitor is plugged into the HDMI 1 port, located at the back of the unit. For more information about device ports, including the HDMI ports, see Setting Up the SMP-Q Device.
- You are using the same monitor type for both outputs.
Using the Monitors
Ensure that you are using the same monitors for all outputs. Using different monitors may have unintended consequences.
There are two EDID configuration buttons located on the front of the Scala Media Player-Q. The following table describes each button and its function.
|COPY/ERASE||Use to copy stored EDID data or erase existing EDID data|
|EMULATION ON||Use to turn EDID emulation on.|
The EDID buttons have internal LED indicators that indicate the status of the EDID emulation. The table below explains the possible combinations of LED statuses.
|Emulation On Status||Copy/Erase Status||Description||Notes|
|Not lit||Not lit||EDID emulator is off||There is no stored EDID data. If you press the Emulator On button, it will briefly flash red and then remain unlit.|
|Not lit||Lit||EDID emulator is off||Has valid stored EDID data.|
|Lit||Lit||EDID emulator is on|
The player's Windows operating system will detect the presence of the monitor that has been programmed into the EDID emulator. The device will not recognize:
The following tabs contain instructions regarding how to program and erase programmed EDID information from your device.
Use the following instructions to set up integrated hardware EDID emulation.
- Plug the monitor into the HDMI 1 port on the back of the device.
- Press the COPY/ERASE LED button located on the front of the device.
After approximately five seconds, the COPY/ERASE and EMULATION ON LED buttons are green.
Erase Stored EDID Information
Use this option if you need to reprogram due to a change in monitor models.
To erase stored EDID information, press and hold the COPY/ERASE LED button for five seconds. The button will flash red briefly and then no longer be lit.
