SETTING UP THE STREAMACHINE
1st Insert the SD Card into the slot (push it gentle but firmly until it is all the way in.)
Next plug in the HDMI and connect to other end to your TV
Now connect the remote receiver & Wi-Fi dongle (if supplied) via USB
If you are using WIRED internet (recommended) plug the LAN cable in to the Pi and the other end to your router.
BEFORE you power on the Pi – On your TV select the correct HDMI input! If you cannot do this (and its normal on some TV's that you cannot) Just go ahead and connect the power lead to the Pi and connect it to the mains (But try to switch your TV input to the correct HDMI input ASAP) (on initial boot the Pi will interrogate your TV and select the highest display mode possible, If your TV is off or not ready your picture will look very poor! (but a simple reboot will correct this)
THE FIRST BOOT OF YOUR STREAMACHINE
WiFi (WIRELESS) INTERNET CONNECTION
To Connect the streamachine to your wireless internet please ensure you have plugged the wireless USB dongle into the streamachine prior to powering up the device!
Navigate RIGHT to the SYSTEM TAB then move DOWN to openelec settings, this may not be available during the first few minutes after booting (just retry a little later)

NAVIGATING & SEARCH USING MASHUP
NAVIGATING AROUND XBMC
Simply use the ARROW KEYS and select or enter to select an option.
Looking at the picture above think of XBMC as an operating system and addons as APPS! By default streamachine will be GREEN meaning it is selected, use the up arrow to move to the first row of addons and then move left to Mash up then press (SELECT) or (ENTER) to activate the addon!
Moving RIGHT to SUPER SEARCH will allow you to find quite possibly EVERY MOVIE, TV SERIES that ever existed! Give it a whirl!
This is Mashup and Super Search is highlighted! Pressing enter or select will open the search box but first you will get the option of TV SHOWS or MOVIES, here I select TV SHOWS and search for the BLACKLIST! (I suggest you do the same, Its GREAT!) Mashup will now search for your TV SERIES, and bring up a box of results) simple SELECT a result and WATCH your FILM or TV SHOW!
Please note some results may not work! this is normal!! Just try different servers!!
