How to Connect a Disklavier Piano to the Internet


The Disklavier is the world’s most advanced piano, with unmatched sound, playability and such technological innovations as Internet Direct Connection. Taking your Disklavier online, Internet Direct Connection offers new music, streaming radio and more, at the touch of button. All you have to do is connect! This video will help you connect your Mark Four, E3 or DKC-850 Disklavier to Internet Direct Connection, using a standard ethernet connection. To connect using a standard ethernet connection, you will first need an ethernet cable. You will also need to have a broadband, high speed internet connection. You will not be able to connect to Internet Direct Connection with a dial up connection. Finally, in order to allow both your computer and your instrument to be connected to the internet at the same time, you will also need either an internet router, or a modem with router capabilities. To set up the connection, just attach one end of the ethernet cable to a free port on your modem or router, and the other to the ethernet port on your Disklavier. The location of the port on the Mark IV is shown here. Ports on E3 and DKC-850 pianos are located at the back of each unit. Once the ethernet cable is connected, press the internet button on your remote, or access the internet from the Mark IV remote’s main menu, and you should be automatically taken to the Internet Direct Connection home page. If you see a screen saying that you are not successfully connected, you may need to set up your instrument to connect to your network. To do so, press setup on your E3 or DKC-850 remote, Then choose network. Or return to the main menu on your Mark IV remote, then choose, “setup” and “network”. On the network screen, you can update your DHCP, DNS, Proxy and manual IP settings. In most cases you will not need to edit these settings. Unless you are manually assigning DNS or IP locations for your instrument, you can set DHCP to on, and your network should automatically configure the settings to connect successfully. If you want to manually enter your DNS server addresses manually, you can choose “DHCP and DNS”. If you also want to enter your IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway Server information, select “Manual”. Also, if you’re using a proxy server, you will need to enter the name and port of your proxy server here in order to connect. This is all done basically the same way on an E3 or DCK-850, using the “Yes/No” keys on the remote. If you have any questions about the settings for your network, please contact your internet service provider, or refer to the documentation for your router. After entering and confirming your network settings, return to the Internet Direct Connection home page by pressing internet on the E3 or DKC-850 remote, or on the Mark IV’s main menu. The Internet Direct Connection home page should appear. If you receive any error messages during setup, please refer to your instrument’s manual or the Frequently Asked Questions page of the Online Services website, or contact Yamaha’s customer support. After you’re connected, you’ll be able to use all of the free services on Internet Direct Connection. To purchase songs and radio subscriptions, you’ll need to enter your billing information at the Online Services website.
