E-Songbook

This instruction shows how to enable or disable the CAVS Karaoke player to have a static IP address in a local network. The setting is as follows: • CAVS Karaoke player connects to a wireless router, using a LAN cable or Wi-Fi. • The wireless router assigns an IP address to the CAVS Karaoke player. • Customers connect the E-Songbooks such as phones or tablets to the same wireless router. Then they input the IP address of the CAVS Karaoke player to connect to CAVS Karaoke player and select songs. When the CAVS Karaoke player has the same IP address each time it is turned on, the customers can connect their E-Songbooks without inputting a new IP address each time. However, powering off the wireless router or CAVS Karaoke player overnight can change the IP address. This is when you may wish to set the CAVS Karaoke player to have a static IP address across power cycle. Enabling to have a static IP address assumes that the wireless router and CAVS Karaoke player stay the same in the setting. But when there is a need to change the router, such as to connect to Internet using a different router, the setting to have the static IP address in CAVS Karaoke player can block the connection to a new router. This is when you may wish to disable the setting for a static IP address in the CAVS karaoke player. A. Enable a static IP address in local network 1. Boot up the CAVS Karaoke player. It will start the Windows OS and then the CAVS Karaoke program. Turn on the wireless router. Connect the two by LAN or Wi-Fi as always in the setting. It is import to use even the same LAN ports as always if connecting by LAN. 2. Close the CAVS Karaoke program in the CAVS Karaoke player. For the customer interface, minimize the screen. For the lyric screen, double click in the center to shrink and bring up the control panel from behind. For the control panel, click on the ‘X’ mark at the top right corner to close the CAVS Karaoke program 3. When the CAVS Karaoke program closes, you should be at the Windows desktop. Go to Start > Settings > Network& Internet. 4. If the CAVS Karaoke player is connected to the router by Wi-Fi, go to ‘Wi-Fi’. 5.

Be careful to choose the correct network that is connected to the wireless router. 7. Scroll down to read the IPv4 address under the Properties. Be sure to remember the first three sets of the IPS address ‘XXX.XXX.XXX.xxx’. 8. Click once on the return arrow at the top left corner of the screen. Next click on ‘Change adapter options’.
