Set Top Box SnapShots

Introduction

This article describes saving and restoring the state of set-top boxes.

Prerequisites

  • Encoded Media IPTV Manager Pro

Overview

You’re able to save the current state of one or more boxes by creating a SnapShot that can be saved to disk and loaded back in at a later date. The SnapShot is plain text file and containing the following comma-separated values (.CSV):
  • Unique device ID
  • Volume level
  • TV channel
These allows you to perform out-of-hours configuration tasks on any number of target boxes, and be certain that the devices in question can be easily returned to their original viewing state.

Process

To create a SnapShot for one or more boxes
  1. Highlight one or more target boxes individually, in a range, or by selection
  2. Right-click any of the highlighted entries and choose SnapSnots followed by Create SnapShot
  3. Select a destination folder and provide a filename for the new SnapShot file
To restore a SnapShot

  2. Right-click any of the highlighted entries and choose SnapSnots followed by Restore SnapShot
