  • You will now see the Device Template for the "Media Live LCD/Buttons" displayed in the right hand frame.
  • In the line in the device template labeled "Device Template" you will see a green button named "View"... Click this to view/edit the device template #1860 for the "Media Live LCD/Buttons".
  • A new window will open to display the device template #1860.
    • On the 2nd line of the device template you will see 'Implements DCE' - tick this.
    • Now in the 'Command Line' field enter "Media_Live_LCDButtons" **make sure there are no typos in this string**
    • Scroll to the bottom of the window and click 'Save' and then close the window.
    • Now restart your media director to have the template changes take effect.
  • Once the MD has booted and you are back in the Orbiter your MSI Media Live VFD should be illuminated and displaying the date/time.
