The Listening Console

The listening console is part of the CDN Manager application and is intended for qualified technical support staff.

The Statistics tab shows the current state of the STB, firmware, RTP stats, etc.

The Listening Console tab is able to simulate the remote control, send messages to end users and send debug commands.


Most of the Listening console commands are intended for high level debugging for the developers, however, there are a few commands that are useful for technical customer support.
