Symbiosis Between PC And Hi-Fi Device: Pinnacle ShowCenter

Third Step: The Box Looks For The Server PC

Logically the unit has to know which PC to go to retrieve your movies, music and photos. Actually, the box locates the PC with the ShowCenter software by itself. But this feature didn't always function reliably in our tests - considering that the product is still in its initial development stage, there must be a small bug in the software.

You can manually enter the IP address of the server PC by pressing the A button on the remote control unit, as the screenshots below illustrate.

Manual input of IP address. The ending ":8000" is attached automatically.

A green button means: the server PC is available. A red button means: the PC is turned off or the network connection is interrupted.
