MP-1000 Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does the MP-1000 always have to be connected?
A: No, the unit only needs to connect if there is new content for it to download. Otherwise, it will run within a local network or it will just play content which was already stored on its compact flash card.
Q: Can the MP-1000 download content while it's playing?
A: No, updates must be scheduled during "off" hours.
Q: Can multiple MP-1000s be updated at once?
A: Yes, if using the included CAT management software; you will need a network hub to connect multiple MP-1000s at once. If using an FTP server, you just need a server with the bandwidth capacity to serve all your MP-1000s at once.
