Out of the box the Screen Crab will save screenshots at regular intervals to an inserted MicroSD card. Follow these steps for the most basic deployment to get started.
- Using two HDMI cables (not included) plug the Screen Crab inline between an input (e.g. a computer, chromecast, console, etc) and an output (e.g. monitor, television, projector).
- Insert a MicroSD card formatted in either FAT32 or ExFAT.
- Power the Screen Crab using a USB-C cable (not included) with a power adapter capable of providing 5 watts (5 Volts, 1 Amp).
After a brief 30-second boot time, the Screen Crab LED will light blue to indicate that the MicroSD card is being written to with screenshots. To stop recording and eject the MicroSD card - press the button, wait for the LED to light solid Green, then eject the card.
