In this article we cover how you use, manage and set up the Soundtrack player 3 which is our latest version of the player. If you have an older version of the player (if it doesn't have LED lights) please visit this article for more accurate information.
An introduction to the LED lights
The player has two LED lights that will communicate the players status. The left LED light will tell you if you have an internet connection and the right will show you if the music is playing.
The Soundtrack player's LED lights makes it easy to know the connection status of your device. Below is an overview of what each color indicates about your player's connectivity status.
Trying to connect
When the player is trying to connect, the left LED light will turn yellow.
When the player is connected, the left LED light will turn green.
Failed to connect
If the left LED light blinks yellow, the player has failed to connect to the internet. Make sure to check that your ethernet cable is plugged in correctly and check your router for internet connection.
- Log in to business.soundtrackyourbrand.com, go to your zone and click on Hardware device Soundtrack player and enter the device ID found on the bottom of the box.
- Connect the power cable. A light will show up on the front side of the box when it’s on.
- Connect the ethernet cable to give the streaming box Internet access, as well as an audio cable (RCA cable or 3.5mm audio cable) between the streaming box and your sound system.
- Enjoy the music! Your player will always stay up to date and download the latest software version automatically. Please note that it therefore may take up to 15 minutes from when you've connected the network cable until the music starts playing.
Using static IP
If you're using static IP, you need to configure the player with your IP information.
1. Adjust this .json file with your own network information.
2. Copy the .json file to an empty USB-stick. Do not rename the file.
3. Restart the Soundtrack Player without an attached network cable. The LED should blink green and then orange to indicate it was successfully restarted.
4. Plug in the USB-stick into the Soundtrack Player and look for a green light from the LED lamps to confirm the settings are applied.
5. After you have seen the confirmation blinks, unplug the USB-stick and restart the Soundtrack Player by pulling the power cable out and plugging it back in.
