Receiver Step 1

To start with, connect your factory image receiver to the same network as you have connected your AIM to. You can use either of the two network connections on the right have side of the unit as shown in the image below.
ALIF2020R Systemports

The units will go through three reboot cycles while adding themselves to the AIM but when this is completed you will be able to configure the units from the AIM interface.

Step 2

The next step is to access your AIM and login. How this is done is covered in the ALIF:AIM Quick Start Guide.
Once on the dashboard you should see a banner message indicating you have a receiver to configure. In this example we will have two.
Step 1

You need to click on "configure" which will take you to the next step.

Step 3

You can now configure the specifics of your two receivers giving them a suitable name, description and location for them to be easily recognisable. The units start with their MAC address as a default name, it's recommended to change it into a more human friendly name.
Step 2a

Step 2b

When this has been done you can hit save at the bottom of the screen, this will commit the settings you have made. If we then look at the receivers tab the units you've added and configured should be there.

Transmitter Step 1

To start with, connect your factory image transmitter to the same network as you have connected your AIM to. You can use either of the two network connections on the right have side of the unit as shown in the image below.
ALIF2020T Systemports

The units will go through three reboot cycles while adding themselves to the AIM but when this is completed you will be able to configure the units from the AIM interface.

Step 2b

Channel Step 1

When a transmitter is added and saved there is a channel created by default. You can find these under the "Channels" tab of the AIM. This will the list the channels that have been created. You'll need to add permissions for users into the channels before you can use them as Infinity operated on an opt in mechanism.

To do this click on the pencil icon on the far right of the channel, this is shown in the image below.
Step 1

Step 2

You will then see the channel settings. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will then see the permissions section which by default has no permissions set.
Step 2a

You can click on the green double arrow which will pull all currently configured users into the "Permitted" section which will allow them access to the channel from the OSD.
Step 2b

With this done you can now hit save at the bottom of the screen and you will be set up to use your Infinity system.
