though it is compatible with WPS. For details on
whether your wireless LAN router/access point is
compatible or not compatible with WPS, and on the
setup of a WPS connection, refer to the operating

To check the copyright protection
This system cannot play back files in WMA format
with DRM copyright protection. If a WMA file
cannot be played back on this system, check the
property of that file on your computer to see
whether the file is DRM-copyrighted.
Open the folder or volume where the WMA file is
stored and right-click the file to display the
[Properties] window. If there is a [License] tab, the
file is DRM-copyrighted and cannot be played
back on this system.
To reset the system to the factory settings
If the system still does not operate properly, reset
the system to the factory settings.
Use the buttons on the unit to reset the system to its

Glossary
AAC
LAN
Router
Abbreviation for Advanced Audio
Coding. It is a standard for audio file
compression determined by the
MPEG (Motion Picture Experts
Group), an ISO (International
Organization for Standardization)/
IEC (International Electrotechnical
Commission) working group.
Abbreviation for Local Area
Network.
LAN is a general name for networks
set up for communication among
devices including computers,
printers, and fax machines in
relatively small areas such as offices
or buildings.
A device that bridges networks,
converting the protocols and
addresses of each network. When
connecting multiple network devices
to Internet, a router is necessary. The
term “router” by itself may refer to
any of these devices.
Bit rate
MAC address
The bit rate is a measure of data
volume expressed in bits per second
(bps).
Abbreviation for Media Access
Control address. It is an
identification name assigned to all
network devices. Each device has its
own address and there are no
duplicate addresses. A MAC address
may be necessary when identifying
the unit separately from other
devices (such as a DLNA server).
Byte
DLNA
Abbreviation for Digital Living
Network Alliance. The DLNA is a
nonprofit organization that
establishes design guidelines for
digital content shared over networks.
For details, see:
http://www.dlna.org/home/
DNS
Abbreviation for Domain Name
System. A server that translates
domain names to IP addresses, or IP
addresses to domain names. A DNS
is identified by an IP address. Also
called a “DNS server.”
Internet Service Provider
A company that offers a connection
service to the Internet.
IP address
IP addresses usually comprise four
groups of up to three digits each,
separated by a period (such as
192.168.239.1). All devices on a
network must have an IP address.
MP3
Abbreviation for MPEG 1 Audio
Layer-3. It is a standard for audio file
compression determined by the
MPEG (Motion Picture Experts
Group), an ISO (International
Organization for Standardization)
working group. It enables
compression of audio files to about
1/10 of the data size of a standard
compact disc. Since the MP3
encoding algorithm is disclosed,
there are various encoders/decoders
that are compliant with this standard.
The MP3 standard is therefore
widely used in the computer field.
Network key (security key)
An encryption key used to limit the
devices with which communication
can occur. It is used to provide
higher security for devices
communicating via a wireless LAN
router/access point.
Proxy
A program or a server that provides
Internet access to computers within a
firewall or quicker downloading of
web pages.
Abbreviation for Service Set
IDentifier. It is a name that identifies
a particular access point within an
IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN. To
connect with an access point, a client
device must be set with the same
SSID. SSIDs can be up to
32 characters long. For higher
security, a network key is normally
also used. In this case, connection
cannot occur unless the SSID
matches the network key.
WEP
Abbreviation for Wired Equivalent
Privacy. An encryption key used in
wireless LAN networks. As an IEEE
standard based on the RC4 algorithm
cryptography, WEP is used to secure
IEEE 802.11b wireless networks.
During the transmission of a
message between a wireless LAN
access point and a client device, the
sending side encrypts the data and
the receiving side decrypts it. For
communication to occur, both
devices must use a common code
key, which is called the “WEP key.”
The encryption level is indicated by
the bit count of the key; e.g. 64 bits
or 128 bits. The higher the bit count,
the higher the security level.
Precautions/Specifications
One of the fundamental units used to
express digitized data in computers.
Digitized data is commonly
expressed in binary digits (zeros and
ones). A single unit of data is one bit.
One byte consists of eight bits.
SSID
WMA
Abbreviation for Windows Media
Audio. WMA is the audio
compression technology developed
by Microsoft Corporation that allows
audio files to be compressed to about
1/22 of the data size of a standard
compact disc.
75GB
WPA
Abbreviation for Wi-Fi Protected
Access. An encryption standard for
wireless LAN networks created by
the Wi-Fi Alliance to remedy a
number of serious security problems
in the WEP system. In addition to the
network name (SSID) and
encryption key (WEP), this protocol
uses a user authentication framework
called “EAP” (Extensible
Authentication Protocol) and a
protocol called “TKIP” (Temporal
Key Integrity Protocol) which
automatically updates the encryption
code at regular intervals for higher
security.
WPA2
Abbreviation for Wi-Fi Protected
Access 2. An encryption standard for
wireless LAN networks. As an
upgraded version of WPA created by
the Wi-Fi Alliance, this standard
uses AES (Advanced Encryption
Standard) cryptography to provide
stronger security than WPA.
WPS
Abbreviation for Wi-Fi Protected
Setup. A wireless network standard
created by the Wi-Fi Alliance allows
you to set up a wireless network
easily. A push button method and a
PIN code method are available.

DAB (Digital Audio
Broadcasting)-related
terms (CMT-G2BNiP
only)
Dynamic label segment
The text data transmitted for each
channel or service.
Ensemble label
In DAB, multiple digital radio
channels are transmitted using a
single radio transmission or
frequency. A group of channels sent
this way is called an “ensemble” and
“ensemble label” is the name of such
a group.
Service label
The name of an individual digital
radio channel or service.
