Remote Control Quick Start Guide for Cisco Digital Media Players


Revised: April 15, 2010

1 Concepts

Overview

Cisco Digital Media Players (DMPs) are compatible with a remote control unit that we sell separately. Functions of this remote control unit vary according to which DMP-enabled software products your organization purchases, licenses, installs, and configures. See http://www.cisco.com/go/dms to learn which Cisco software products are DMP-enabled.

DMP Pairing

We do not support pairing a remote control with any one DMP exclusively. Instead, signals from your remote control will affect all DMPs within its field (angle) of transmission. This design prevents needless manufacturing waste and lowers your cost to purchase, ship, and store remote control units.

The Battery


Caution Important safety warnings, notices, and guidelines apply to the battery in your DMP remote control. See "Statement 330 — Lithium Battery Warning" on Cisco.com.

Your DMP remote control is battery-powered. It uses a standard, 3V CR2025 lithium battery, manufactured by a well-known supplier such as Panasonic or Toshiba. The name of the actual manufacturer is etched into the face of the battery.

When the battery loses its charge or when you remove the battery, your DMP remote control will not work until the battery is replaced. You should always recycle or dispose of the battery in accordance with:

Its manufacturer guidelines.

Regulations in your locale for disposal and recycling.

Remote control settings are not lost when you remove or replace the battery.

Factors That Reduce Effectiveness

All current DMP models are equipped with an infrared (IR) sensor that receives, recognizes, and reacts to the signals from a DMP remote control. However, the way that you mount a DMP can limit how well it responds to these signals. For example, the mounting method might block the IR sensor. This in turn might cause you to attach an IR extension cable to your DMP, as a workaround.

Even when you mount the receptor from this extension cable where it is not obstructed, and even though this method improves the reception of IR signals that are blocked otherwise, IR extension cables are not perfect. The physics that underlie their design ensure that these cables always have some signal loss, and greater cable length contributes greater signal loss. Thus, the field (angle) of transmission becomes narrower for a remote control and the range (distance) becomes shorter in direct proportion to the length of the IR extension cable.

2 Procedures

Replace the Battery

Procedure


Step 1 Place the remote control on a flat surface, button-side down.

Step 2 To unlock the battery clip and remove it, do these two things simultaneously:

Pinch the locking mechanism to unlock it.

Slide the clip out of the remote control.

Step 3 To remove the old battery from the clip, pivot the battery so that it touches only the opening of the clip.

Step 4 Insert a new battery so that positive charge (+) symbols are visible simultaneously on the battery and the clip.

Step 5 Slide the clip back in to the remote control.

Step 6 Stop. You have completed this procedure.
