The On Screen Display

Background

The On Screen Display of the HD Streamer receiver unit displays useful information regarding the system status. If there is an issue with streaming video/audio here is the best place to look to find out what's happening.

 

The OSD Explained

A sample of the OSD is displayed below and shows the following information

1. Signal Strength indicator graph

This indicates the strength of the signal between the Transmitter and receiver. It is displayed on the OSD once the transmitter and receiver have established a wireless connection.

  • A Green bar represents a very strong signal strength
  • An Orange bar represents a good signal strength
  • A Red bar represents a low signal strength

 

2. Numerical value of signal strength

This is a numerical indication of the signal strength between the Transmitter and receiver. It is displayed on the OSD once the transmitter and receiver have established a wireless connection. If there is an issue with the units streaming video reliably it is very useful to know this number.

 

3. The WiFi channel currently being used by the HD streamer

This is the WiFi channel currently being used by the HD Streamer. This is  very useful to know this value when Adjusting the WiFi channel

 

4. Current video resolution & format

This is the current video resolution & format the receiver is outputting.  When the units are streaming video this value will equal the resolution and format of the content entering the transmitter unit   

 

5. The Software version numbers

These are the version numbers of the software currently running in the transmitter and receiver units. To make sure there are no compatibility issues its advisable to have both units running the same version. Please see the Upgrade section to update the units. 

 

6. System status

This displays the current status of the the HD streamer system. If there are issues with the units it is extremely useful to know what state the unit is in. There are 3 states

A. Source: Waiting and Wireless connecting

In this state the transmitter and receiver have not yet established a wireless connection and are continuously trying to connect to each other

B. Source: Waiting and Wireless connected

In this state the transmitter and receiver have a wireless connection and are setting up and authenticating all the HDMI links in the system. If one of these links fails to set up properly ( for example HDCP Error or  unreliable HDMI connection ) the units will remain in this state until the links are good and the HDMI source is sending out content into the transmitter

C. Source: Connected and Wireless connected

In this state the HD streamer is sending video and audio to the receiver. Once in this state after a few seconds the OSD will hide its self so as to not obstruct the video. Should the status of the system change at all the OSD will reappear.

 

7. The Provision Logo

Displaying the OSD

The OSD will always be displayed while the video and audio are not being streamed. When video and & are being sent the OSD will hide after a few seconds. In some cases its useful to bring the OSD back up again. This is achieved by stopping and restarting the video & audio streaming. This can simply be achieved by unplugging then reconnecting the HDMI cable between the receiver and the display its connected to.
