How do I connect my Motion Vision X to my wireless network?

Created: 12/04/15 | Updated: 01/26/16



There are several methods for connecting your wireless audio device to your network. These include Access Point, WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), and wired setup. Additionally, each setup process is slightly different depending on the device (iOS/Android/PC) which you are using to setup the connection. These instructions address all of these setup methods and devices.


NETWORK REQUIREMENTS

You must have the following to connect your soundbar to your network:

  • A wireless router.

  • A high-speed internet connection for reliable playback of internet based music services.

  • Have your network password ready before connecting the soundbar to your network.



TIP! If wireless connectivity is weak or not available, connect to your router with an Ethernet cable.


TIP! Your soundbar communicates with wireless networks that support 802.11g/n. For best performance, a network that supports 802.11n wireless technology is recommended. A network supporting 802.11b may be used, but it will effectively stream to only one device equipped with DTS Play-Fi. Your soundbar communicates over a 2.4 GHz wireless band, however, it can become slow in locations, such as apartments, where many routers are in operation. Consequently, your soundbar is capable of jumping onto a 5 GHz band on dual band wireless routers.


DTS Play-Fi APP REQUIREMENTS

  • An Android device running Android 2.2 or later.

  • An iOS device running iOS 6.0 or later.

  • A Windows PC running Windows 7, 8 (32 and 64 bit), or later.


WI-FI SETUP AND STATUS BUTTON

The Wi-Fi Setup and Status button tells you what your soundbar is doing.

  • Rapid Blinking: booting up.

  • Blinking: connecting to a wireless router.

  • Slow Pulse: Access Point Setup Mode.

  • Two Blinks: WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) Mode.

  • Solid: wirelessly connected to a router.

  • Off: connected to a router using an Ethernet connection.


DOWNLOADING THE DTS PLAY-FI APP

  • Android Device Users: Download the free DTS Play-Fi app from Google Play or the Amazon App Store.

  • iOS Device Users: Download the free DTS Play-Fi app from the Apple App Store.

  • PC Users: Download and install the free DTS Play-Fi program from https://play-fi.com/apps/windows



CONNECTING TO A WIRELESS NETWORK: ACCESS POINT SETUP

Access Point Setup causes your soundbar to behave as if it were a wireless router. Using your mobile device or Wi-Fi capable PC, you connect directly to your soundbar using Wi-Fi, select your home wireless network, and enter the network password.


  1. For optimal setup conditions place your soundbar next to     your wireless router. The soundbar can be moved to its final location after wi-fi setup.

  2. Plug in your soundbar and press the Power button.

  3. The Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will start rapidly blinking for 20 seconds while your soundbar boots. If this is the first time your new soundbar is plugged in, the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will start pulsing slowly. If the soundbar is already configured to connect to a wi-fi network, the button will turn solid (connected) or blink rapidly (not connected).

  4. Once the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button starts pulsing slowly, your soundbar is in Access Point Mode and ready to connect to your wireless network. Note: If the soundbar’s Wi-Fi Setup and Status button is not pulsing slowly, press and hold the button for 8 seconds until you have heard two tones—one at 3 seconds and another at 8 seconds. The soundbar will display “ACCS.PNT.” After 20 seconds, the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will begin pulsing slowly to indicate Access Point mode is ready. At anytime you can press the button again to cancel the setup mode.

  5. Launch the DTS Play-Fi app.

CONNECTING TO A WIRELESS NETWORK: WI-FI PROTECTED SETUP (WPS)

Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a feature found on most wireless routers that allows your soundbar product to securely and automatically connect without needing to enter a password. WPS is not a standard feature on all routers, and only one wireless device can be set up at a time.


Check your router’s owner’s manual to see if WPS is an available feature, or look for a button on your router marked with the WPS logo. If your router does not have WPS, then use the Access Point Wireless Setup.


  1. For optimal setup conditions place your soundbar next to     your wireless router. The soundbar can be moved to its final location after wi-fi setup

  2. Plug in your soundbar and press the Power button.

  3. The Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will start rapidly blinking for 20 seconds while your soundbar boots. If this is the first time your new soundbar is plugged in, the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will start pulsing slowly. If the soundbar is already configured to connect to a wi-fi network, the button will turn solid (connected) or blink rapidly (not connected).

  4. For 3 seconds, press the soundbar’s Wireless Setup and Status button until you hear a tone. The soundbar will display “WF.SETUP” and after a few seconds the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will blink twice in continuous intervals to indicate WPS mode. At any time you can press the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button again to cancel the setup mode.

  5. Now push the WPS button () on your router.

  6. Once the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button is solid (not blinking), this indicates your soundbar is connected to the wireless network. This may take up to a minute. If, after a minute, the button continues to blink rapidly, setup failed and you should try again.

  7. Connect your mobile device or PC to the same network as your soundbar. Launch the DTS Play-Fi app. Upon launching, it will automatically detect your soundbar and should prompt you to name your soundbar.



CONNECTING TO A WIRED NETWORK

  1. Using an Ethernet cable, connect your soundbar to your router.

  2. Plug in your soundbar and press the Power button.

  3. The Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will start rapidly blinking for about 20 seconds while your soundbar is booting up.

  4. The Wi-Fi Setup and Status button turns off when the soundbar is connected via Ethernet.

  5. Connect your mobile device or PC to the same network as your soundbar. Launch the DTS Play-Fi app. Upon launching, it will automatically detect your soundbar and should prompt you to name your soundbar.



ALTERNATE CONNECTION METHOD USING A WEB BROWSER

Alternate Connection for Mac and Windows PC:

  1. To avoid a delayed wireless set up, place your wireless audio device in close proximity to your router during wireless set up.

  2. Plug in your soundbar and press the Power button. The Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will start rapidly blinking for 20 seconds while your soundbar boots. If this is the first time your new soundbar is plugged in, the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will start pulsing slowly. If the soundbar is already configured to connect to a wi-fi network, the button will turn solid (connected) or blink rapidly (not connected).

  3. Once the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button starts pulsing slowly, your soundbar is in Access Point Mode and ready to connect to your wireless network. Note: If the soundbar’s Wi-Fi Setup and Status button is not pulsing slowly, press and hold the button for 8 seconds until you have heard two tones—one at 3 seconds and another at 8 seconds. The soundbar will display “ACCS.PNT.” After 20 seconds, the Wi-Fi Setup and Status button will begin pulsing slowly to indicate Access Point mode is ready. At anytime you can press the button again to cancel the setup mode.

  4. Ensure that Wi-fi is enabled on your computer. Go to your computer’s Wi-Fi set up. Select the Wi-Fi network with “Play-Fi ” in the name.

  5. Once your wireless audio device is selected as the Wi-Fi network, open your web browser and type http://192.168.0.1/index.html in the address bar. You will see a web page from your wireless audio device.

  6. Click on ‘Set Up’. A list of wireless networks will be displayed. Click on the wireless network you wish to connect to.
