    • When successful the alignment pattern will be rendered and Calman will display the G1 in the Source tab with a green light.
  10. You are now connected to your G1 and ready to proceed

Note: When the device is connected and there is no activity the G1 will render a screensaver pattern. This is expected behavior to keep the device alive during the Calman session and to prevent burn-in of some display technologies.

Important: If you reboot the G1 while connected to the device in Calman you need to re-initiate the connection: Using Calman, disconnect and reconnect the device from the source tab.
