|Footnotes:|| HDMI output supports DVI-D with optional adapter
 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 through 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 Shuttle XPC slim Barebone DH170 supports a maximum of two displays with the same input connector. For example: Two displays can be connected through HDMI input - the first one directly to the HDMI output, the second one to the DisplayPort output with an adapter. A third digital display, if required, must be connected directly to the DisplayPort output (without an adapter).
 4K Ultra-HD resolution
A 4K-display with Ultra-HD resolution (3840 x 2160) should only 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 more than one of them run at 4K resolution.
 Optional D-Sub/VGA connector
The mainboard features one analog graphics port CN6 on the mainboard. This signal can be lead to the outside as a 15-pin D-Sub VGA connector at the backpanel by using an optional adapter PVG01. However doing so means one serial port (COM) less can be used at the backpanel.
 Optional Wireless LAN module
The Shuttle XPC slim Barebone DH170 supports an optional WLAN module, which consists of a half-size Mini-PCIe WLAN card and an external antenna with an appropriate antenna cable. Shuttle offers a suitable accessory kit "WLN-S" with two antennas.
 Notice - operating temperature
For high ambient temperatures over 40°C we strongly recommend to use SSDs (supporting at least 70°C) and rugged SO-DIMM memory modules with a temperature range of up to 95°C.
 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 DH170 also comes with a hardware-based solution. By removing Jumper JP2 (on the mainboard behind the power button) the system will start unconditionally once power is supplied.
 Teaming Mode
The teaming function allows you to group both available network adapters together to function as a single adapter. The benefit of this approach is that it enables load balancing and failover.

 Serial Ports
This PC features two serial RS232 ports with 9-pin D-Sub connectors at the back panel. The left COM port (COM1) can also be configured as RS422 and RS485 in the BIOS setup. The COM ports are protected by black plastic caps.
Pin 9 of the D-Sub COM-Port is a multi-functional signal. Based on the Jumper JP1 configuration on the mainboard, it can be configured as Ring Indicator (RI) or external power supply with a voltage level of either 5V or 12V. Each COM port can be configured separately. The maximum current is 500 mA per connector.
 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.
