Further Settings

Here you will find further settings related to Chromecast. 

  • Unit Name - Here you will be able to give your EDGE NQ a personalised name
  • Standby Mode - Here you will be able to choose either 'Network Standby' or 'Eco Mode'
    • Network Standby - The EDGE NQ always has a network connection.
    • Eco Mode - When in standby the EDGE NQ will not have a network connection. Apps, including the Edge Remote will not be able to wake the unit from standby.
  • Volume Limit - This limits the maximum volume that other applications (ie Spotify, TIDAL etc) can attain. When active only the volume control, remote control or EDGE app can set the volume higher than the limit.

We recommend having the volume limit set below 85%. This will mean that apps being wirelessly streamed to the EDGE NQ are unable to achieve maximum volume, which could damage your speakers. 

Once finished click 'Next'.
