  • The app will ask you to connect an ethernet cable to the back of the NEEO Brain and into an open numbered port on your router. If you have multiple access points and or switches, try plugging the NEEO Brain into your main router only for the initial setup
    • In some cases, you will have to try and plug the ethernet into different AP's to get through the initial setup or rebooting your router always helps in case you can't get past the initial setup
  • The NEEO Brains LED will flash white for a minute or two, when the LED is solid white tap on the "Next" button located in the upper right-hand corner
  • Your NEEO Brain will now scan your network so you can create your NEEO account
  • Once you have created your NEEO account, you can choose the location of your NEEO Brain and begin to add your devices as shown in the screenshots below:

  • When you add a Tv to your NEEO you will be asked if your Tv is your tuner or if you have a set-top box
  • It's important to note that if you do have a set-top box, but you also use your Tv for its smart Tv functions (streaming NetFlix etc..) you want to select "Yes, use this Tv as my tuner"
  • If you do not use your Tv for its Smart Tv functions and you do have a set-top box, tap on "No, I have a set-top box"

  • Tap on the icon and follow the onscreen instructions, we will now teach NEEO how your set-top box is wired to your Tv

  • When you select the input your set-top box is connected to on your Tv, your Tv will change inputs so you have visual confirmation you are selecting the correct input :)
  • Once you tap on "NEXT" you will be all set to have a good time! 
  • When you're back to the home screen you will see your DirecTv with a Yellow circle and white exclamation point which only denotes that you simply need to add your favorite channels
  • Tap on the DirecTv icon so you can begin using your NEEO!
