Access the setup

All you need is a computer on the same local network.

Use your favorite internet browser (Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox are the most tested).

Avoid Microsoft Edge which seems to have a very strange behavior). Also some Android tablets seems unable to resolve .local addresses.

Enter the network name you chose in the setup folowed by “.local”. Suppose you chose “mySuperMachine”:

mySuperMachine.local/

in the address bar.

The final “/” may be omitted, depending of the browser.

If you used the settings page to rename your device, say, to “myBox”, the browser adress will be:

myBox.local/

If it does not work !

Some local networks are not able to resolve .local network names.

  • make sure you are on the same local network
  • be aware that some electronic router may block that address
  • Try to remove the “.local/” part
  • Try the IP address (the four dot separated numbers at are displayed at the launch time) something like http://192.168.0.23 You can get the IP address in your router parameters in the DHCP list.

Last but not least: plug a Screen on the HDMI port (you may have to open the box), and look at the console for some errors.
