Other: RoHS, Energy Star 5.0, ErP
This device is classed as a technical information equipment (ITE) in class B and is intended for use in living room and office. The CE-mark approves the conformity by the EU directives:
(1) 2004/108/EC relating to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC),
(2) 2006/95/EC relating to Electrical Equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits (LVD),
(3) 2009/125/EC relating to ecodesign requirements for energy-related products (ErP)
 Power on after power fail:
The BIOS setup provides a "Power-On after Power Fail" function that can be found under "Power Management Configuration". As the name indicates, this function determines the PC's behaviour after power failure: (1) unconditional power on, (2) restore former status or (3) keep system turned off. As a matter of the nature of this function, it may fail after short power failures. This is why the XH170V also comes with a hardware-based solution. By removing Jumper 4 (on the mainboard near the "Shuttle" imprint), the system will start unconditionally once power is supplied.
 How to convert DisplayPort into HDMI/DVI
The DisplayPort outputs can be converted to HDMI or DVI by an additional, passive adapter cable. For example:
DELOCK 82590: 1m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to HDMI-A (male, 19p)
DELOCK 82435: 5m, DisplayPort (male, 20p) to DVI-D (male, 24p)
The integrated graphics automatically detects the connected display and puts out the appropriate electric signal - either DisplayPort (without an adapter) or HDMI/DVI (with an adapter).
However, a monitor with a DisplayPort connector cannot be connected to the HDMI port with a simple, passive adapter.
 Three independent displays simultaneously
The DS87 supports a maximum of two displays with a DVI or HDMI input. A third digital display, if required, must be connected directly to the DisplayPort output (without an adapter).
 Optional Wireless LAN module:
This Slim PC supports an optional WLAN module which consists of a half-size Mini-PCIe card with IEEE 802.11n functionality and an external antenna with an appropriate antenna cable. Shuttle offers a suitable accessory kit "WLN-S" with two antennas to increase WLAN range.
 4K Ultra-HD resolution
A 4K-display with Ultra-HD resolution (3840 x 2160) should be connected via DisplayPort, as only this port supports a higher refresh rate of 60Hz. Certain displays (e.g. Dell UP2414Q) however require MST mode (Multi-Stream Transport) to be enabled which sends two separate images at half resolution each to the display. These two images are then combined and put in correct order by the Intel graphics driver when in Collage mode. Please note that HBR2-mode (High Bit Rate 2) must be supported by each display to have two of them run at 4K resolution.
The video playback performance depends on the video format, bit rate and the processor used. Daily office applications usually won't require the system to run under full load, however for smooth 4K (2160p) video playback requirements are different. An Intel Core i3 processor or higher is required here, since the performance of the integrated graphics engine of a Celeron or Pentium processor is not suffice.
 Optional accessory: Drive bay cover
If the XH170V is used without an optical slimline drive, this cover helps close the open bay which can be particularly important in public institutions and prevent from dust and objects being inserted inappropriately. Please contact Shuttle for the optional accessory "Mylar POI-MY01".
 High ambient temperature
For high ambient temperature over 40°C we strongly recommend to use SSDs instead of hard disk drives.
 The optional accessory PHD4 allows for installation of one 3.5" hard drive. However doing so means no other drives such as a slimline DVD drive or a 2.5" HDD/SSD can be used.
 Power connector for SATA drives
The supplied power cables for SATA drives provide a voltage of 5V. Only in very exceptional cases a 2.5" hard disk also requires a 12V line, which are not supported out-of-the-box (only via an optional adapter which is included with PHD4).
 Installation of Windows 7
Intel® 100 chipset series has removed their support for the Enhanced Host Controller Interface (EHCI) which is the driver software for the USB 2.0 ports. The new chipset only supports the updated Extensible Host Controller Interface (xHCI for USB 3.0) which is not supported by the original Windows 7 installation disk. This means, that peripheral devices connected by USB (like keyboard, mouse and external optical drive) do not work during the Windows 7 Installation. As a solution please add the required USB 3.0 drivers to the Windows 7 installation files - this procedure is explained in the Shuttle FAQ section at global.shuttle.com.
