Music Player Mode
Music Player Operation
BLIK RadioStation’s media player
functionality allows you to play audio files
(ACC, AIFF, AU, MP3, RM, WAV and WMA)
and playlists (M3U) stored on a networked
PC or Apple Mac. The media player
functions have been tested and certified to
operate with Windows 2000, Windows XP,
Windows Vista and Mac OSX 10.2 –
10.4.9 (currently Mac OSX ‘Leopard’ is not
supported).
Windows PC Set-Up
There are two Music Player modes
available. Each of them requires different
settings, and either one can be used to
playback music from a media server.
Shared Folders (CIFS)
In order to set up the device to playback
music stored on shared network drives,
user name, password and domain settings
must be configured to work with the PC
share settings. This is only required if the
user has set a password on his/her shared
folders.
PC: Domain/Workgroup configuration
The Domain configuration item can be found
on a Windows XP machine as follows:
1. From the start menu, select Control
Panel > System then select the Computer
Name tab.
2. The Domain or Workgroup that this
Computer is a member of is displayed in
this tab.
3. If the PC is not a member of any Domain
or Workgroup then one must be joined. To
do this click on the change button on the
computer name tab and enter the name of
the domain (default on Windows XP is
MSHOME).
4. A reboot of the PC may be prompted if
the Domain or Workgroup has been
changed.
PC: Setting up a new user account (Windows XP)
BLIK RadioStation may require you to set-up
a user account on each PC that you wish to
browse. By default most PCs have at least
one user account associated with it. The
user name and password (optional) needs
to be the same on each PC as the Internet
Radio only stores one user name and one
password. For windows XP this can be set
up as follows:
1. From the start menu, select Control
Panel -> User accounts
2. From this screen left click the ‘Add ...’,
and enter the new user name and the
Domain/Workgroup setting noted above.
Select the type of user (limited) and then
select ‘create account’.
3. Select the user just created, select
‘Create Password ...’ and enter a password
for this user.
4. Note the User Name and Password.
Note for Windows VISTA : Users have to
turn on the Guest account via manage user
accounts in the control panel in VISTA, then
add access to either ‘Everyone’ or ‘Guest’ on
the shared drive. They could create a new
account for the internet radio, with a
password, if they are concerned about
security. The Guest account has no
password by default, so the Wi-Fi radio will
connect to it from its factory default
settings.
PC: Configuring A Shared Drive
From the Start menu select My Computer
and navigate to the directory you wish to
share. Right click on the directory and
select Sharing and Security. Configure the
shared drive as read only, and ensure that
the User Name created above has read
access to the share.
Wi-Fi Radio: Storing The
Username And Password
Before the radio can stream music from a
PC, you need to ensure you have shared
folder available on the PC, and set up the
radio so that it knows the username and
password (if one has been set) for the
shared folder on the PC. This can be set
up using the PC settings menu.
Shared Media (UPnP)
Media sharing uses Windows Media Player
(WMP) 11 and above as media server. This
mode does not require any setting in the
radio, but the PC needs to be configured to
allow the radio access to the media. You will
only have to do it once, following the next
steps.
1. The PC must be connected to network
(wired or wireless) that will be used to
share media with the radio.
2. Ensure that the radio is powered on and
connected to the same network as the PC.
3. In WMP, add to the media library the
audio files and folders you want to share
with your internet radio (in Library > Add to
library).
4. In the WMP main window, click on
Library, then Media sharing.
The Internet radio is presented as an
“Unknown Device”. Make sure that the
device has access to the shared media by
selecting it and clicking <Allow>. Then click
<OK>.
The PC is now ready to stream the music to
the radio.

The Manual Tune selection screen allows
you to select a particular frequency to

dependant on the currently-set frequency
band and contains all of the frequencies
within that band. It starts with the short
name of the frequency, for example 12B,
and is followed by the actual frequency in
MHz.
If there is a station corresponding to this
station number and frequency, the display
will show the name, frequency, and a
tuning meter will show the signal strength.
DRC - Dynamic Range Control
BLIK RadioStation includes a dynamic
range control that automatically boosts
the volume of quieter sounds for listening
in noisy environments.
The DRC control is found in the DAB
Mode menu under ‘DRC’. There are three
pre-defined settings as follows:

As time passes, new stations will become
available in your area. To find them and
add them to your station list it is
necessary to perform either a ‘Local’ or
‘Full’ scan. Both operations can be
accessed via the DAB Mode menu.
A Local Scan performs a shorter scan of
only the ‘local’ ensemble range.
A Full Scan will take longer, but will cover
the complete DAB ensemble range.
Favourite Station Presets

synchronised with the DAB broadcaster
clock. If ‘No Update’ is selected, then the
clock remains as manually set.
Factory Reset
In the unlikely event that BLIK
RadioStation should ‘crash’, ‘freeze’ or
start behaving in a strange way, it is
possible to perform a full software reset.
This operation will completely reset BLIK’s
memory, clearing all WEP/WPA codes
and user settings. This will effectively
return BLIK to its default factory settings.
Software Update
It is possible to remotely update BLIK
RadioStation’s software via your Wi-Fi
internet connection, to ensure that you
have all the latest features, or to fix
known bugs in the software. To check
whether there are any updates available,
simply go to the ‘System Setup’ option on
the ‘Main Menu’ and select ‘Software
Update’. BLIK will search to see if a
software update is necessary, then report
back. If an update is available and
necessary, BLIK will start the download
process and install its new software
automatically.

Troubleshooting
Wi-Fi Internet Radio
DAB Digital Radio
If you are experiencing any problems with
your BLIK RadioStation please read the
following ‘troubleshooting’ guide.
Alternatively you can visit the support
section of the Revo website
(www.revo.co.uk) or call our technical
support staff on 01555 66 61 61.
Q. I hear a ‘burbling’ noise on some
stations.
If you have trouble connecting BLIK
RadioStation to your wireless network, these
steps may help to resolve the problem:
1. Confirm that a Wi-Fi connected PC can
access the Internet (i.e. can browse the
web) using the same network.
2. Check that a DHCP server is available, or
that you have configured a static IP address
on the radio.
3. Check that your network’s firewall is not
blocking any outgoing ports.
As a minimum, BLIK RadioStation needs
access to UDP and TCP ports 80, 554,
1755, 5000 and 7070.
4. Check your access point does not
restrict connections to particular MAC
addresses. You can view the radio’s MAC
address under the ‘Internet Setup’ section,
accessed via the ‘System Setup’ option on
BLIK’s main menu.
5. If you have an encrypted network, check
that you have entered the correct key or
pass phrase into the radio. Remember that
text-format keys are case sensitive. If, when
attempting to connect to an encrypted
network, your radio displays: ‘Wireless
error’ followed by a 5-digit number, then
please ensure that you enter the correct
pass phrase for the network. If the problem
persists, then you may need to consult your
network configuration.
If BLIK RadioStation can connect to the
network successfully, but is unable to play
particular stations, it may be due to one of
the following causes:
1. The station is not broadcasting at this
time of the day (remember it may be
located in a different time zone).
2. The station has reached the maximum
allowed number of simultaneous listeners.
3. The station is not broadcasting anymore.
4. The link on the radio is out of date.
5. The Internet connection between the
server (often located in a different country)
and you is slow.
16
A. If the signal strength is too low, a breakup in reception can occur. This sound is
the result. Make sure that BLIK’s
antenna is fully extended and in an
upright position. If the problem persists,
move BLIK to another location or check
that you are in an area where reception
of this station is possible.
Visit: www.ukdigitalradio.com/coverage
to check DAB coverage in your area.
Q. I get a ‘No stations available’ message?
A. Make sure that your antenna is fully
extended and vertical. Check the signal
strength and move BLIK to another
location if necessary.
Q. BLIK’s clock isn’t set.
A. BLIK needs to be able to pick-up a DAB
signal or have its clock set manually.
If BLIK can find a DAB station, it can
then set its clock.
