INTRODUCTION
This radio has basically three types of menu. Press the ENTER button on the front panel (or on the remote
control) to step through and select options. A scroll bar on the right of the screen shows if there are further
options above or below those visible.
Each mode has a MODE MENU, with options specific to that mode.
For example, the FM mode menu has just two options: Scan setting
and Audio setting. In addition, each mode menu has two final options:
SYSTEM SETTINGS > and MAIN MENU >. The ‘ >’ indicates
options leading to further menus.
The SYSTEM SETTINGS MENU allows access to system settings and
information such as network, time/date, language and software
update.
Menus with more options than will fit on one screen have a scroll bar
to the right.
10
The MAIN MENU allows access to all modes plus sleep and timer
functions.
Some menus, for example the SYSTEM SETTINGS MENU, have
several submenus.
Dialogue screens
Dialogue screens are shown to allow the user to change settings.
They vary in complexity from simple Yes/No options up to the
scrollable network password input screen.
As with menus, the selected item is shown with a white background.
Dialogue screens mark the current setting with an asterisk (*).
Display screens
This radio has basically three types of display screen:
The Standby screen shows the time, date and any active alarm times.
As you cycle through the play modes pressing MODE button, The
radio shows a splash screen for each mode. After one second, the
radio enters the selected mode and tries to start playing the last
station or track that was playing in that mode. If this is not possible,
Jupiter 6 will try to connect to the selected source by scanning for
stations, networks, or prompting for user input as appropriate.
The NOW PLAYING SCREEN shows information about the audio
source and track now playing, where available.
In addition, there are screens for information such as volume, mute
and information/error messages.

12
2.3 Connecting to a network
For Internet radio and Music player modes, you need a network connection. To connect the radio to your
network, you need either
o
a wired router and an Ethernet (RJ45 network) cable, or
o
a Wi-Fi wireless router, together with password key if set.
For Internet radio and Internet software updates, the router must have a broadband Internet connection. When
you select Internet radio or Music player mode, the radio tries to connect to a network. If this is the first time it
has tried to connect, or if the stored networks are not accessible, the Network wizard starts. To run the
Network wizard manually, select MENU > SYSTEM SETTINGS >
NETWORK > NETWORK WIZARD. Once the wizard starts, enter the
following information (If it needs a password for entering):
o
If not already set, WLAN region (select country/region from list),
o
Network name (select your network from the list),
o
If connecting to an encrypted wireless network, the key
(password).
To enter your key, press the ENTER button on remote control to move
the cursor through the characters and select. As each character is
selected, the key is built up near the top of the display.
There are three options accessible by pressing ENTER button before
the first characters (0123…) – Backspace, OK and Cancel. Select
`BKSP` option to erase the characters you selected.
Once you have completed entering the key, select OK, and the radio
will try to connect to the selected network. If connecting fails, the radio
returns to the password entry screen.
If the network connection is lost, the radio automatically tries to reconnect.
Network profiles
This unit can remembers the last four wireless networks it has connected to, and automatically tries to connect
to whichever one of them it can find.
You can see the list of registered networks through MENU > SYSTEM SETTINGS > NETWORK >. From here
you can delete unwanted networks by turning and pressing ENTER then confirming delete Yes.
Other options
There are also other options for viewing and manually altering network settings from MENU > SYSTEM
SETTINGS > NETWORK >. These options are not normally necessary, but users experienced with networking
may find them useful for diagnosing and fixing network problems.
13
2.4 Internet radio portal registration
The Frontier Silicon Internet radio portal website allows you to organize your favorites lists and also listen to
Internet radio on a computer.
To register your radio with the portal, first get your radio´s unique portal access code by pressing MENU >
STATION LIST > HELP > GET ACCESS CODE >.
Write down the access code.
Note: Do not confuse the portal access code with the Radio ID (from
MENU > SYSTEM SETTINGS > INFO.)
On an internet-connected computer, access the portal website at
www.wifiradio-frontier.com .
If this is your first visit to the portal, register for a new account, entering the following information:
o
access code,
o
your e-mail address,
o
password,
o
radio model.
If you already have an account and wish to add an additional radio, log in to your account and select MY
PREFERENCES > ADD ANOTHER WI-FI RADIO.
Once your radio is registered with the portal, you can immediately use the favourites and added stations
features.
2.5 Setting up a music server
In order for the radio to play music files from a computer, the computer must be set up to share files or media.
UPnP media sharing allows devices like Jupiter 6 to play music from a shared media library, navigating
through tag menus such as Artist, Album or Genre. If you are running a suitable server system such as a PC
with Windows Media Player 10 or later (WMP), and your music library is well-tagged, then it is recommended
to use media sharing. Only the UPnP server needs to be set up.
14
Note: iTunes does not natively work as a UPnP media server, but there are add-ons available to work with an
iTunes library.
Folder sharing (CIFS) allows devices like Jupiter 6 to browse folders on a network drive for audio files. This is
a good alternative if you cannot use media sharing, and an alternative way to find files even if you have media
sharing set up. The computer needs to be set up to share folders, and if this is done with password control,
you also need to enter the user name and password into Jupiter 6.
2.6 Sharing media with Windows Media Player
The most common UPnP server is Windows Media Player (10 or later). To set up WMP for media sharing,
perform the following steps:
1.
Ensure that the PC is connected to the network.
2.
Ensure that the radio is powered on and connected to the same network.
3.
In WMP, add to the media library the audio files and folders you want to share with your internet radio
(Library > Add to Library…).
4.
In WMP, enable media sharing (Library > Media sharing…).
Setup windows media player
This is the procedure to run UPnP.
1.
Put some *.mp3 and *.wma in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Music\Sample Music
(\\palm\dropbox\ylam\Music\)
2.
Install Windows Media Player 11 (
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/download/dow nload.aspx)
3.
Click Library - Media Sharing…
4.
Check the “ Share my media to” box, then click settings
5.
Make sure your MEDIA SHARING look the same like below:
15
OK all the way out.
6.
7.
In Windows XP - Start Menu - Run - type services.msc, make sure
a.
Universal Plug and Play Device Host
b.
Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service is “ started” .
Make sure you laptop / PC and V6 board is connected to the same wireless network. If you are in Frontier
Silicon office, make sure your PC and V6 are connected to Frontier-Visitor
8.
Start V6 board. Go to Music Player Mode - Shared media - then you should be able to find the your
shared music in there. (I think Shared Media is for UPnP and Share folder is for samba)
2.7 Sharing folders on a Windows PC
To share folders in Windows, the PC must first be a member of a domain or workgroup. Once this is setup,
folders can be shared from Windows Explorer (My Computer).
16
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 > 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 and enter the name of the domain (the default for Windows XP is MSHOME).
4.
A reboot of the PC may be prompted if the Domain or Workgroup has been changed.
Setting up a new user account (Windows XP)
The Wi-Fi Radio requires a user account to be set up 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 click ‘ Add …’ , and enter the new user name and the Domain/Workgroup setting
noted above. Select the type of user (restricted) and then select finish.
3.
Select the user just created, select ‘ Reset 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,
then add access to either ‘ Everyone’ or ‘ Guest’ on the shared drive. You could create a new account for
the internet radio, with a password, if you are concerned about security. The Guest account has no password
by default, so Jupiter 6 will connect to it from its factory default settings.
Configuring a shared drive
From the Start menu select My Computer or Windows Explorer and navigate to the directory you wish to
share. Right click on the folder and select Sharing and Security. Configure the shared drive as read-only, and
ensure that the user created above has read access to the share.
2.8 Sharing folders on nonnon-Windows computers
It is beyond the scope of this manual to describe how to share folders on all computer systems. Please refer to
your operating system documentation to find out how to share folders on non-Windows computer systems. If
you configure shared folders with user name and password security, note these values.
2.9 Setting the radio
radio to work with shared folders
To set up the radio to playback audio stored on password-protected
shared network drives, you need to enter a user name and password.
To do this, from Music player mode, select MENU > PC SETUP >
17
USERNAME and then enter the user name then PC SETTINGS > PASSWORD and enter the password.
Enter a keyword by selecting characters then OK. The user name and password entry screens are similar in
operation to the Wi-Fi password entry screen.
The default user name is ‘ guest’ .
3 Internet
Internet radio mode
This radio can play thousands of radio stations and podcasts from
around the world though a broadband Internet connection. When you
select Internet radio mode, the radio contacts the Frontier Silicon
Internet radio portal to get a list of stations, organized into different
categories like Country, Most popular and Genre. Once you select a
station, the radio connects directly to that station.
The portal also enables multiple lists of favorite stations that you can personalize, for example Andy’ s
stations, Jo’ s favorites, Talk shows. To use the favorites feature, register your radio with the portal website
as the above-mentioned (Internet radio portal registration). If you have several Frontier Silicon radios, you can
register them all on the same account so that each radio has access to your favorites lists. It is possible to add
favorites either directly through the radio or through any computer with a web browser. To enter Internet Radio
mode, either press MODE until the display shows Internet Radio or select MENU > MAIN MENU > INTERNET
RADIO.
NOTE:
The station list menu is provided from the Internet radio portal, so it is only accessible when the radio is
connected to the Internet. Station lists and submenus may change from time to time.
There are several ways of selecting stations. Directly from the radio:
o
Last listened,
o
Presets.
From the portal through the MENU > Station list > menu:
o
My Favourites,
o
Stations,
o
Podcasts,
o
My added stations,
o
Help.
If you are already listening to an Internet radio station, you can press LEFT direction button rather than MENU
to quickly return to the last visited branch of the menu tree. For example, suppose you were listening to New
Orleans Radio through the browse facility as described in section 5.4 below. Pressing LEFT would return you
to the Highlighted Blues stations menu. Pressing LEFT again would return you to the Blues menu, and so on.
18

8 Software upgrade and factory reset
8.1 Software upgrade
upgrade
From time to time, Frontier Silicon may make software upgrades available with bug fixes and/or additional
features. You can either check manually, or set the radio to check periodically automatically (this is the
default). If Jupiter 6 detects that newer software is available, it will ask if you want to go ahead with an update.
If you agree, the new software is then downloaded and installed. After a software upgrade, all user settings
are maintained.
Before starting a software upgrade, ensure that the radio is plugged into a stable mains power connection.
To turn automatic checking on or off, select MENU > SYSTEM SETTINGS > SOFTWARE UPDATE > AUTOCHECK SETTING.
8.2 Factory reset
A factory reset resets all user settings to default values, so time/date, network configuration and presets are
lost. However, the radio´s current software version is maintained, as is registration with the Internet radio
portal. Internet radio favourites therefore remain unless you re-register your radio with another account on the
portal website.
To perform a factory reset, select MENU > SYSTEM SETTINGS > FACTORY RESET > YES.
