Before you plug in DC power cable, you should plug in Ethernet cable, keyboard and mouse usb cables to usb ports and HDMI cable to HDMI port socket for monitoring the system. After connections are done, you can plug in the DC power cable to “DC IN” socket. If you have auto power version of DSBOX-N2, the system runs as soon as you plug the DC power cable in. If you have other version, you should press power button which is located on the front side. The DC Power Source should be in the range of 9-28 Volt DC.
