- The screen will flash and take you to a login screen. DO NOT Login.
- Instead, click on the WiFi logo in the lower right-hand corner (between the time and the letters "US").
Note: If you cannot see the WiFi logo or it is partially cut off, this means your television monitor's resolution configuration is slightly off. You may wish to consult your TV manual or a local IT professional to adjust your TV's resolution appropriately.

Note: If you are UPDATING your existing WiFi settings, this option may say "Connected to " rather than "No Networks."

If you have requested your office Facebook page posts to be integrated with the device, your device may ask you to sign in with a Facebook account at this time. Any Facebook login credentials will work, but Facebook does require a Facebook user to be logged in to view Facebook content through the device. If you do not agree with Facebook's terms of service, or if you wish to have Facebook integration removed for any other reason, you may contact PBHS Support at email@example.com and we will remove the Facebook integration on your device.
Your device will now power on, connect to your network, then sign in and begin playing automatically. There should be no need to go through these steps again unless you need to update the WiFi information later on.
