        Crestron Sync software will automatically start after installation, simply follow the onscreen prompts. To add CEN-ISERVER's after the first time installation, follow the below steps (note, the instructions below are included in the HELP menu in the Sync Software)

        To configure Crestron Sync

        1. From the Crestron Folder in Windows, Select Crestron Sync and then click on the Crestron Sync icon to launch the Sync software

        2. Right-click inside the Crestron Sync window and click Add New Device.

        3. Enter a name for the device, e.g., My iServer.

        4. If the device name is changed while connected to iTunes, this will disconnect the iPod. To re-connect, select the device and click Connect Selected.

        5. Type the IP address of the Crestron iServer (See the CEN-ISERVER manual for details on how to find the IP Address).

        6. It is recommended NOT to select the Automatically Connect check box. This allows the user to select the Crestron device connection each time they start iTunes. (If the check box is selected this will connect the device automatically each time iTunes starts or Crestron Sync starts.)

        7. Click OK to add the device to the Crestron Sync window.

        To add devices, re-open the "Add New Device" dialog and configure the additional devices as described above.

        Notes:
        1) Crestron Sync software is not compatible with PowerPC™ computers.
        2) VMware Parallels Desktop for Mac, and other virtualization software may cause connection issues with your iPod® device and Crestron Sync Software. For normal operation, if any VM type software was running, the system should be restarted running only the Mac OS X.


        Crestron Sync will not automatically add itself to Startup on a Mac. This must be done manually one time, as follows:

        3. Click Open at Login.

        8. Click OK to add the device to the Crestron Sync window.

        To add devices, re-open the "Add New Device" dialog and configure the additional devices as described above

        The status icons indicate the connection status, as follows:

        • Use the Crestron Toolbox to connect to the device via TCP/IP or USB and double-check the IP address from the System Info tool.

        • Verify that the network is configured correctly.
