System DOES NOT require a TV / monitor to be connected for operation.
Unit does not provide an AV playback interface,
and is designed to operate / run as a "Black Box."

Note: The interface is designed for status / informational / diagnostic purposes, and only appear when using remote login (Remote Desktop/RDP, or LogMeIn) or via a local KVM (keyboard-video-mouse) set of connections. Multi-disc archivals only work when an optional LiivJACK is connected. Otherwise, disc archivals are done one-at-a-time.

Insert CDs and enjoy convenient Drop-n-Rip™ / DualRip™ archiving*!

Once complete, CDs are auto-ejected and ready for playback, complete cover art & rich metadata!

Place movie discs into the system, and they'll be archived* in the same, automated fashion.

Movies are available for immediate streaming / playback, with rich metadata ready for your control system as well!

See a list of available movies in the current collection

* - Multi-disc archiving shown works when optional LiivJACK accessory is connected. Without LiivJACK, discs are stored one-at-a-time. Out-of-the-box, the system only handles archiving of unencrypted titles. Music album and movie cover art, titles, and other metadata are the property of the respective copyright holders.
