Connecting your BrightSign Device to a Display Group
For the HDMI Passthrough app to work, you must be running it using a BrightSign XT1144 model device running Enplug. To see how to setup your BrightSign device, please see our article on it: Using Enplug on BrightSign Players.
Before running the HDMI Passthrough app, you must have your BrightSign device provisioned and set up with Enplug. There are two ways of doing so: BSN Cloud & SD Card.
1. Go to BrightSign's BSN Cloud website found HERE.
2. Login to your BSN Cloud account or sign up if you do not have one.
3. After you are logged in, please follow the instructions found on our Using Enplug on BrightSign Players article to finish the setup.
4. After you follow the instructions, you will be on the two-word setup phrase screen found on Enplug devices.
1. Download our Enplug Autorun File and put it on a blank Micro SD card.
2. Insert the Micro SD card into your BrightSign XT1144 device.
3. Reboot your BrightSign device and wait for the two-word setup phrase screen found on Enplug devices to appear.

Once you have the two-word setup phrase screen on your BrightSign device, you are ready to connect it to a Display Group from your Enplug account.
