World renowned set-top box manufacturer, Infomir, has released the fifth generation of their hugely popular MAG IPTV devices.
These latest models allow users to stream and view incredibly sharp content with movie theater-like surround sound.
Let’s now look at this exceptional device’s key features.
What’s bundled with the MAG540?
All MAG540’s come packaged with the following:
- 1x MAG540 set-top box
- 1x Remote control handset (complete with x AAA batteries)
- 1x HDMI cable
- 1x Power supply unit
- 1x User manual with warranty card
Slick user interface
The MAG540 is a true plug-and-play device, including everything necessary to start watching your favorite movies and TV shows with minimal fuss. Simply unpack the unit, plug in the power supply, connect the HDMI cable to a TV or monitor, follow the simple ten-minute set-up procedure, and you’re good to go!
It’s important to link the device with the remote control handset when it boots up for the first time. To do this, simultaneously push and hold two buttons on the remote control for three seconds – a green light will appear when the pairing is successful.
Four buttons on the remote control can be configured to carry out specific tasks or manage other home appliances, for example, a TV or even an air conditioner. Moreover, it is possible to set the remote to ignore other infrared-operated devices if you just want to use it with the MAG540.
Constructed from durable ABS plastic, the remote handset’s case is ergonomically designed to sit nicely in the palm of your hand. Furthermore, its buttons are designed for at least 300,000 presses, so it will definitely last a lifetime.
Two long-lasting AAA batteries are included in the MAG540 package for the remote control, so you can start using it right away. However, to ensure dependable performance, it should be noted that when replacing the batteries, the new ones must be the same type and charge level as the old ones.
The MAG540 device comes with a 5 Volt DC power supply unit that can accept input voltages between 100 and 220 Volts AC. This unit can operate dependably for 30,000 hours, or 3.5 years, without a break.
The HDMI cord bundled with the MAG540 can connect to most modern TVs and monitors. Being 1.5 meters long, this cord allows you to place the set-top box anywhere that is convenient.
