  • HDMI Cable: A standard HDMI cable for connections.
  • Time: Set aside approximately 5 minutes for this setup.

Setup Steps

Prepare the iiYama Display:

  • Follow the user manual provided with your iiYama display to set it up. This includes assembling the stand (if needed), connecting the power cable, and other preliminary steps.
  • Familiarize yourself with the remote control functionalities as you will need it for navigating through the settings.

Connecting the Devices:

  • Use the HDMI cable to connect the ScreenManager Media Player to the iiYama display. Ensure the cable is securely connected to the HDMI ports of both devices.

Accessing Advanced Settings:

  • Turn on the iiYama display.
  • Press the HOME button on the remote control.
  • Navigate to the “Advanced settings” option in the menu.

Enabling HDMI with One Wire:

  • In the Advanced settings, find and set the "HDMI with One Wire" setting to "On".
  • This feature allows the iiYama display to be controlled by the ScreenManager Media Player via HDMI, enabling remote scheduling of the display's operating times.

Setting Power Save Mode:

  • Still in the Advanced settings, set the "Power Save" option to "Mode 3".
  • This mode ensures the display automatically turns on when it detects an HDMI signal, which is useful for seamless operation.

Configuring Boot Source:

  • Navigate to the "Configuration 1" section within the settings menu.
  • Set the "Boot on source" option to "HDMI 1". This ensures that every time the display is turned on, it automatically selects HDMI 1 as the source, which should be connected to your ScreenManager Media Player.

Finalizing Setup

  • Once all settings are correctly configured, the iiYama display should now be ready to use with the ScreenManager Media Player for 24/7 operation.
  • Test the setup by turning off and then turning on the display to check if it automatically selects the correct HDMI source and displays content from the ScreenManager Media Player.


  • If the display does not automatically select the correct HDMI source, double-check the 'Boot on source' settings.
  • Ensure that the HDMI cable is properly connected if there is no signal.

This setup should ideally take about 5 minutes and will allow for efficient and remote management of your iiYama digital signage display using the ScreenManager Media Player.
