Step 1: How to connect the OMNIplayer3 to a network

The OMNIplay4 supports both wired and wireless network connectivity.

Wired connection (Recommended)

We recommend connecting the device with a wired connection due to greater network stability. With this alternative, simply connect the RJ45 networking cable directly to the network socket.

Please double-check that the ethernet setting is enabled and the connection is working from the settings menu (Network & Internet - Ethernet).

Wireless connection

Find the settings for wireless network connection under Network & Internet and select Wi-Fi.

  • Click on Wi-Fi and enable Wi-Fi in the top right corner. A list of available networks appears.
  • Select your network, enter the password, and connect.

OMNIplayer Wifi Settings

  • Ensure that you are successfully connected to the internet by checking the WiFi menu. You should see the word "connected" displayed below your selected network if the connection is established.

If you see the message "saved," it could mean that you are experiencing difficulties connecting to the internet or that you have entered an incorrect password.


The configuration of the license key

To link an OMNIplay4 with your DatabeatOMNI account it requires a license key that must be activated on the OMNIplay4

The license key is unique and can only be used with one single device. The license key consists of six letters, four numbers, and a final letter by default.

Example: NOABCD0001A

You can find your active license keys or order new license keys in DatabeatOMNI.

  1. Log in to your DatabeatOMNI account on

  2. Click the Locations tab, and select the location the OMNIplay3 should be linked to.

  3. Click the OMNIplayers tab on the right and you will see all active license keys.

  • Type in your license key and then click Save.

Unless specifically instructed or in a unique circumstance, please avoid selecting the Beta or Private Server options.

Congratulations - the configuration is now complete!

The device will now restart and download the set configuration from DatabeatOMNI. The content in the subscribed channel will need some time to download first and then play automatically. The time needed depends on the content in the channel and network speed.
