With Cablecast CG now being an integral part of the Cablecast software, all of your settings for both Cablecast and Cablecast CG can be found in one place.

Cablecast CG Settings
In the Cablecast CG settings you have 4 sections that you can choose from to be able to make adjustments to many different aspects of Cablecast CG.
Those sections are; Players, Channels, Zones, and System.
The Players menu will show you the systems Players Dashboard, Initial Channel, and other options.
The Players Dashboard allows you to see all of the Cablecast CG players that are configured with your system and also gives you the ability to change what Cablecast CG channel is currently playing on them.
In the Dashboard click on the Pencil edit button. Here you will be able to name that player or more importantly set the Default Channel which is what will play out when Cablecast CG is showing on your channel.
