I believe you can use both the DC and the POE inputs. The board will use the higher of the voltages and automagically failover to the other when the primary fails.

Re: SXT 5HnD how to setup/configure?

Hello,

Silly question, but are you connecting a cable directly from your laptop to the antenna?

If so, the SXT will have no power. You will need an injector cable and a power supply.
