IMPORTANT – Before you begin setup:

1: To use this DNS method to configure MediaHint on your device, you must verify your current IP address in the DNS Settings section of My Account. If you have not done this, changing your DNS settings will not activate MediaHint on your device. If you have questions, please contact support.

2: Before you change your DNS settings to use MediaHint, please write down or save a screenshot of your current settings and server/IP addresses. This is very important if you need to revert back to them at any time. We also recommend you save this page or print it in case you have a problem during setup and need to refer to these instructions.
