Issue

Does the NET5402R-HD decoder support simultaneous VGA and DVI connections?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

NET5402R-HD, all versions

Cause

Wish to use a VGA-only monitor and a DVI-only monitor with an Endura NET5402R-HD decoder.

Resolution

The NET5402R-HD decoder does support simultaneous VGA and DVI connections, but the decoder needs to reboot for it to recognize the new input. The following instructions are to output video to both DVI and VGA connections:

  1. Use the supplied DVI-to-VGA adapter to connect the VGA monitor to one of the ports.
  2. Use a DVI cable to connect the DVI monitor to the other port.
  3. Shut down the decoder by tapping the power button on the front of the unit.
  4. Turn the unit back on by tapping the button again. Once the unit is back online, video will be sent to both monitors.
