Add rooms using the Ditto configuration utility

The Ditto configuration utility can handle the creation of rooms and receivers for you by automatically detecting receivers on your network. In order to use the utility, you must run it from a computer that is connected to the same wifi network as your receivers. mDNS must also be allowed to run on the network. 


The Ditto Configuration Utility can only add older receiver types such as Apple TV 3, Apple TV 2 and Chromecast. Newer receiver types such as Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD, along with Windows devices, have different pairing instructions.

Step 1 - Download the configuration utility

Download the configuration tool here on the Ditto download page.  

Step 2 - Launch the utility and log in

Launch the Ditto Configuration Utility. You will be prompted to log in to your Ditto account.

Step 3 - Search for receivers

Once successfully logged in, simply click on the Get Started button to begin searching for receivers on your network. 

The search typically takes less than 15 seconds to complete.

Step 4 - Select your receivers

Once the search is completed, select the checkbox next to the receiver or receivers that you want to add to your Ditto account. This screen will also give you the networking details that you would need to create the room manually, such as the IP and MAC addresses. 

Click on Configure Rooms after you have selected your receivers.

Step 5 - Configure your rooms

You will be prompted to name your rooms one at a time. Enter a name for each room like "Conference Room" or "Reception Lobby."

Step 6 - Finish

Once your rooms are named, the process is complete! Click Done to finish this process. 

A web browser will open to the Ditto login page, where you can use the Account Portal to change any details in the future.

You're ready to connect to the room or create connection instructions for your users!
