3. Mode Selection
Two modes are available for the tool: "STB Mode" and "Active Mode", which are applicable to different templates for different purposes. The default mode is STB Model. STB Model: suitable for HD and OSD templates. Some templates cannot be displayed in the IE mode and can only be displayed in the STB in order to complete recording; Active Mode: suitable for general definition templates that are JSP web pages that can be displayed in the IE.

The STB Model is applicable to all templates. However, the Active Model is more convenient to operate.

4. Performing Manual Testing in STB Model


1 In the "STB Model", enter the username, select an EPG and then click Login. User Password rules are as follows: No password is needed if SLCS serves as the management platform; Password is needed if the management platform is not SLCS.

2 After login, "Record" becomes available. An STB should be configured in order to perform the test. The user of the STB should be the same as the one entered on the auto-test tool login screen. <> All Rights reserved, No Spreading abroad without Permission of ZTE

3 Enter the IP address of the STGB and click "Record". If connecting the STB times out, try again. 4 After successfully connecting the STB, press "Set" on the STB remote controller and then click "Cancel". This ensures that the EPG that the STB logs in to is consitent as the one to be tested. 5 Perform manual test on the STB. The screen records some URL information. 6 Click "Stop" to stop recording.
