The Pro32TV IPTV Remote Control
Online Guide Coming Soon. Many of the questions and answers on this page are better understood through the use of the Pro32TV IPTV remote control graphic, which shows the buttons used for each feature and some basic channel changing tips.
TECHNICALIf an installer set up my Pro32TV IPTV, and I am now having problems, what should I do?
If you cannot contact the original installer for assistance, please call Pro32TV Customer Service at 1-877-Pro32TV.
How do I adjust the volume?
The volume control buttons are located on the Pro32TV IPTV remote control as well as your television set. Make sure the volume on your TV set is at a normal level, then, by pressing the VOL + or VOL - button on your Pro32TV remote control can adjust the volume to a comfortable level. Setting the volume too high on Pro32TV remote may cause slight sound distortion. To avoid this, adjust the TV volume so that the Pro32TV set-top box volume remains between 64 and 84. Use the MUTE button on the Pro32TV remote to mute the sound temporarily.
How do I change the channel?
Press the UP or DOWN arrow buttons on the IPTV remote control to navigate through channels one at a time, or enter the channel number directly. See the printed channel guide marker for channel numbers. You can also navigate through programs by moving the arrows right and left on the EPG, and by pressing Play on the remote while the yellow box is around the channel logo to select programs.
(Please note: On the remote control, the Ch. + and Ch. - are mismarked. To change the channel to a higher channel number, you would press the UP arrow on the remote, even though the remote label says Ch. - and the same goes for changing the channel to a lower number.)
How do I access another menu option while watching a TV program?
While watching a program, press the STOP button on the remote control and then press the RETURN or the HOME button on the remote to go one screen back or to Main Menu, respectively.
I entered my WEP key, but the system still does not work. What should I do?
If you are using a WEP key that has capital letters, use the shift key on the remote in order to access the capital letters on the on screen QWERTY board. If this does not resolve the issue, make sure your Internet connection is at least 1.5 Mbps and that no one is downloading large files from another Internet-related device at the time of set-up. Depending on when you are entering the WEP key, you may not be able to view the KEY. Starting over at least one time is recommended.
My wireless network is WEP key secured, how do I find the WEP to enter into the Advanced Configuration Screen on the IPTV set-top box?
Follow the directions on the router in order to access the Wireless Network Properties. For example, on the bottom of your router is an IP address (ex. 192.168.1.1). Enter the IP address found on your router and then use the screen name and password found on the router, or your already created screen name and password, to access the router’s home page. Follow the directions to find the WEP key. If you cannot locate the WEP Key, you may have to reset your router back to default status; to do this, please follow the router directions. For additional help on this topic, log onto your router's homepage.
How do I scroll to see another set of eight channels on the Electronic Program Guide (EPG)?
While in EPG, press the VOL + or VOL – button to move to the next set of channels.
Do I need to do anything when the digital conversion takes place in February 2009 in order to continue receiving my Pro32TV IPTV programming?
No. Pro32TV IPTV service is connected to the input on your TV and not your RF input, thus having Pro32TV will not affect your local channels.
I am getting the message “Access Denied” after turning on my set top box. What do I need to do?
The Set-top box should have been authorized prior to shipping. If you are seeing the “Access Denied” message on your television screen, your box has not yet been authorized. Contact Pro32TV at 1 877-Pro32TV for assistance. Please have your customer information and the MAC address from your set-top box ready. Pro32TV will verify and authorize your equipment accordingly.
I am getting the message “Server Busy”. What does this mean and what do I need to do?
This error message indicates that there is a problem with one of the servers in the Pro32TV/NeuLion infrastructure. You should wait for the set-top box to return to the page you were on prior to getting the “Server Busy” message, then try again. If the problem persists, try another channel and check back to the previous channel at a later time. Pro32TV operations is monitoring the servers and will attempt to fix the problem as soon as possible. The problem may or may not be isolated to a single channel or VOD content.
I am receiving the message “Unable to access your requested page, please try again.” What do I need to do?
This error indicates a network issue varying from problems with the set-top box to problems at Pro32TV/NeuLion operations. The network issue can be in the user’s home and/or the Internet connection between the user and Pro32TV/NeuLion. This oftentimes is a short-term problem and can be corrected by pressing the RETURN button on the remote and engaging the same channel or VOD content again. To verify whether this is a short-term problem or not, please attempt to access another channel. If you are able to view another channel without this error message, the Internet connection in your home is still good. If the problem persists with other channels, please verify that your set-top box is still receiving a quality Internet connection from your ISP (Internet Service Provider). To do this, first verify that all cables from your router/modem to your STB are secure. You can then test your Internet connection from your computer by going to www.Pro32TV.com/speedtest . If the test result is zero, or under the recommended 1.5 Mbps, the internet connection may be the source of the error message.
If you are using a wireless router, the set-top box may not be connecting to the wireless router properly. Check for connection failures by going to the Network Configurations screen on the Pro32TV service. The LQ should be over 60/100 and the DHCP should have an IP address associated with it, 192.168.1.1 for example.
To assist in isolating the issue, please contact the Pro32TV Customer Service dept. at 1-877-Pro32TV. If there are no known outages, our support team will work with you to verify the STB has been set up correctly.
Please see the Pro32TV user guide under the heading “INTERNET CONNECTION” for additional assistance.
I am getting the message “Buffering” on the television screen. What does this mean?
The user guide gives a number of reasons for this condition. Please refer to your Pro32TV User Guide for the instructions on diagnosing this problem. In addition, a “speed test” run on the STB or computer can check your bandwidth throughput. To execute this test on the STB press the “HOME” button on the remote to return the STB to the Pro32TV Main Menu screen. From this screen, press the “TEST” button on the remote 3 times quickly. A test screen with a graph will come up. Shortly, the graph will display your bandwidth throughput in a line moving left and right. The bandwidth throughput should be above 1000 kilobits (or 1 Mbps). Ideally, it should exceed 1.5 Mbps (1500 kilobits). If the value is at the recommended level, please try accessing the channel/VOD again. If still “Buffering”, the problem may come from Pro32TV/NeuLion. Pro32TV/NeuLion is aware of the situation and is working on fixing the issue.
If the speed test results in more than than 1.5 Mbps, the problem may be after your router or firewall. If you are confident in rearranging cables, temporarily bypass these devices and connect your STB directly to your modem and run the STB speed test again to see if the throughput (Mbps) improves. If you see improvement, you may have to configure your router/firewall differently in order to achieve the same results when bypassing them.
The sound is not synchronized with the video. What can I do to fix this problem?
This is referred to as audio/video out of synch. This can occur for a number of reasons. One cause may be a network bandwidth issue. If you have less than the required bandwidth you may experience this problem until your bandwidth is brought back up over 1.5 Mbps. Run a speed test on the box or online to determine your current bandwidth. To run a speed test of your Internet service visit www.Pro32TV.com/speedtest. Sometimes simply stopping the program and returning to it later fixes this problem.
It is possible the problem is occurring from the Pro32TV/NeuLion operations center, if this is the case, Pro32TV is aware of the situation and is attempting to fix the problem.
My Pro32TV IPTV box will not turn on, what could be wrong?
First check if the power switch on the back of the set-top box and switched to the “on” position (Dash is pushed in). Check if the batteries are charges and correctly positioned inside the battery holder. The green light on the box confirms your box is on. The blue light confirms the IPTV box is receiving an Internet signal.
What do I need in order to purchase Pro32TV IPTV?
You will need to purchase/receive an Pro32TV IPTV set-top box with its contents. You will need high-speed Internet service of at least of 1.5 Mbps. If your TV is not where your high-speed modem is, you may need a wireless router in order to install your Pro32TV IPTV set-top box next to the TV you plan on using for Pro32TV programming. If your modem is within six feet of your TV, you may need a wired router in order to provide Internet service to your computer.

(Please note that this Web site is not affiliated with Pro32TV but may be a helpful resource to you.)
I have satellite Internet. Will Pro32TV IPTV work with my current Internet service?
Due to the Fair Access Policy (FAP), satellite Internet providers do not provide the sufficient bandwidth needed in order to access Pro32TV IPTV. You may see speeds that meet the Pro32TV IPTV minimum requirement, but the companies’ policies to restrict bandwidth based on downloaded use prohibits Pro32TV recommending these Internet provider options.
I have high-speed Internet, but do not know if it will work with your IPTV service. How do I find out what Internet speed I currently subscribe to?
To find out the speed of your current Internet connection and see if you have sufficient bandwidth for our IPTV service visit our website at www.Pro32TV.com/speedtest. You can also contact your ISP and ask what level of Internet speed you are currently subscribing to. See minimum requirements.
I have Clearwire or another Wi-Fi type Internet service. Will this work with the Pro32TV IPTV service?
There is no Wi-Fi or other non-traditional Internet provider that will accommodate the Pro32TV IPTV service. You may see speeds that meet the Pro32TV IPTV minimum requirement, but the companies’ policies to restrict bandwidth based on downloaded use prohibits Pro32TV recommending these Internet provider options.
INSTALLATIONIf there is no VCR connected to the TV:
If you have a TV with available audio/video inputs continue with installation and connect the Pro32TV set-top box to an available input.
If there is a VCR connected to the TV:
If you have a TV with plenty of available audio/video inputs continue connecting the Pro32TV IPTV set-top box to the available inputs.
What options do I have when connecting the Pro32TV IPTV set-top box to my TV or VCR?
The Pro32TV set-top box has three sets of outputs: Composite, S-video and Component. Only one output option is active at a time. Out of the box, the Composite and S-video outputs are active. If you are going to connect the set-top box with component cables, you will have to change the settings in the Advanced Navigation Screen on your IPTV menus. (Upon continuing tests, if you have a TV with Composite Inputs, you can use that output on the IPTV box as well as the RCA output to say, a VCR. You have to set the internal settings on the Advanced Configuration screen to Video/Comp Video in order for this to work.)
My Pro32TV IPTV box won’t turn on, what could be wrong?
First, check if the power switch on the back of the set-top box is switched to the on position (Dash is pushed in).

How do I watch two different Pro32TV IPTV channels on more than one TV at the same time?
In order to watch two different TV programs at the same time, you will need two set-top boxes. Call Pro32TV Customer Service at 1-877-Pro32TV for deals available when purchasing more than one set-top box.
Can I watch Pro32TV on two TV’s without two set-top boxes?
Yes. However, it will require additional aftermarket products. By connecting the output of the set-top box to the input of an A/V sending device then connect two A/V receiving devices programmed to work with the A/V sending device to TV's in your home. This will allow you to view the same Pro32TV program on two TV’s at the same time. You can use up to four A/V receiving devices throughout your home that are programmed to work with an A/V sending device. In order for the remote control to work in a room where the Pro32TV IPTV set-top box is not, you will need an IR to RF remote adaptor.
