iNet3+
3. Getting started/setup
Although the Argon iNet3+ is sophisticated, getting started is simple. To play DAB or FM radio, all
you need is a power source (a 100-240 V mains supply).
For Music Player mode, you need a wired/wireless Ethernet network and a UPnP music server
(e.g. a PC).
For Internet-connected modes such as Internet radio, you also need a broadband Internet
connection.
To set up the iNet3+:
1.
Place iNet3+ on a suitable shelf or table
2.
Connect the power adaptor between iNet3+ and the mains supply.
3.
To receive broadcast radio (DAB and FM), extend the telescopic antenna.
The setup wizard starts.
w w w . a r g o n a u d i o . c o m
17
iNet3+
3.1 Setup wizard
When iNet3+ is started for the first
time, it runs through a setup wizard to
configure settings for date/time and
network. Once this has finished, the
system is ready to use in most modes.
Note: To change these settings later,
select Menu > System settings >.
To run the setup wizard again, select
Menu > System settings > Setup
wizard.
Select Yes to start the setup wizard.
If you choose No, the next screen asks
if you would like to run the wizard next
time INet3+ is started. The system
then starts without configuring
time/date and network settings and
enters the Main Menu.
Note: If power is removed while the
wizard is in progress, the wizard will
run again next time iNet3+ is started.

iNet3+
3.1.1 12/24 hour display
To change between 12 and 24 hour display, select Set 12/24 hour and then select your preference.
3.1.2 Time/date
The time and date can be updated manually or automatically. With auto-update, the time and date are
automatically synchronised with external clocks. Auto-update is generally more accurate.
Auto-update
Auto-update works with data sent
over DAB, FM or the Internet. The
clock is only updated when in a
corresponding mode, so it is best to
select a mode you use regularly.
DAB and FM use time signals
broadcast with radio transmissions.
Network uses a time signal sent
from the Frontier Silicon Internet
radio portal when in any networkconnected mode.
w w w . a r g o n a u d i o . c o m
19
iNet3+
1.
Select Update from DAB, Update from FM, Update from Network or No update.
2.
If you are updating from the network, set your time zone.
3.
If your country uses daylight saving, the automatically updated time from the network may
be wrong by one hour. When daylight savings are in effect (during the winter), turn on the
Daylight savings option to rectify this.
Note that if you are updating the time from DAB or FM, the Daylight savings option has no
effect on the clock’s time.
iNet3+ will auto-update from the selected source when time information is available.
Manual set
If you set No update, the wizard now prompts you to set the time and date manually.
The date and time are displayed as
dd-mm-yyyy and hh:mm AM/PM
with the first value, dd, active
(flashing).
Adjust each value with the Select
control. As each value is set, the
next value becomes active and
flashes.

iNet3+
3.4 Setting up a music server
In order for iNet3+ to play music files from a computer, the computer must be set up to share files
or media.
UPnP media sharing allows devices like iNet3+ 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.
Note: iTunes does not currently work as a UPnP media server, but there are add-ons available
to work with an iTunes library.
3.5 Sharing media with Windows Media Player
The most common UPnP server is Windows Media Player (10 or later). Alternatively, other UPnP
platforms and servers may be used. 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
iNet3+ (Library > Add to Library…).
4.
In WMP, enable media sharing (Library > Media sharing…).
w w w . a r g o n a u d i o . c o m
31
iNet3+
Note; it may show; Argon iNet3+, “Unknown device”, “Frontier Silicon” or the Jupiter logo as shown below.
Make sure that the radio has access to the shared media by selecting it and clicking Allow. You can
also set a name for the shared media in Settings… Click OK to close the dialogue boxes.
The PC is now ready to stream the music to the radio. The WMP UPnP service runs in the background;
there is no need to start WMP explicitly.
w w w . a r g o n a u d i o . c o m
32
iNet3+
3.6 Setting up iNet3+ for “Play To” Windows 7 streaming media feature.
To set-up Argon iNet3+ to be controlled and to stream music via Windows Media Player 12 (Windows 7 only),
perform the following steps:
1.
Ensure that the PC is connected to the network.
2.
Ensure that iNet3+ is powered on and connected to the same network.
3.
From the Windows 7 main screen,
select Start > Devices and Printers.
4.
Select the Add a device tab in the top left of the Devices
and Printers window and follow the instruction prompts given
by the wizard.

iNet3+
4. Internet radio mode
iNet3+ can play thousands of radio stations and
podcasts from around the world though a broadband
Internet connection.
When you select Internet radio mode, iNet3+ contacts
the Frontier Silicon Internet radio portal to get a list of
stations, organised into different categories like Country,
Most popular and Genre. Once you select a station, INet3+
connects directly to that station.
The portal also enables multiple lists of favourite stations that you can personalise, for example Andy’s
stations, Jo’s favourites, Talkshows. To use the favourites feature, register your radio with the portal website
as described on page 29. If you have several Frontier Silicon radios, you can register them all on the same
account so that each radio has access to your favourite’s lists. It is possible to add favourites either directly
through iNet3+ 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 iNet3+ is
connected to the Internet. Station lists and submenus may change from time to time.
w w w . a r g o n a u d i o . c o m
35
iNet3+
There are several ways of selecting stations.
Directly from the radio:
•
Last listened
•
Presets
From the portal through the Menu > Station list
> menu:
•
Favourites lists
•
•
Browse by Country, Genre, Most
popular, Newest

My added stations
If you are already listening to an Internet radio station, you can press Back 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 4.4 below. Pressing Back
would return you to the Highlighted Blues stations menu. Pressing Back again would return you to
the Blues menu, and so on.

6. Using the “Play To” feature in Windows 7 to stream media
One of the new Windows 7 features includes a feature called “Play To” and this lets your PC running
Windows 7 control iNet3+ to push media and use as a universal remote control for your media collection.
iNet3+ supports the industry standard DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) 1.5 digital media renderer. This
allows you to "Play To" other devices around your home and combine media streaming with controlling a
connected media receiver while streaming content to it from another Windows 7 PC on a home network.
Before you can use the “Play To” feature you need the set-up iNet3+ for Windows 7 streaming media.
6.1 Use “Play To” in Windows Media Player
Windows Media Player makes it easy to manage your media, find items that you want to play, and open
Play To. To select items that you want to play, follow these steps:
1.
Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Media Player.
If the Player is currently open and you’re in Now Playing mode, click the Switch to Library
button in the upper-right corner of the Player.
2.
If the list pane is closed or if the Burn or Sync tabs are exposed, click the Play tab.
3.
Find the items that you want to play in the Player Library, and then drag those items from
the details pane into the list pane.
4.
Click the Play to button at the top of the list pane, click the device on your network that will
receive the media.

see what stations are available. You may also need to
start a scan manually to update the list of stations for one
of the following reasons:
•
Available stations change from
time to time.
•
•
If reception was not good for the
original scan (for example the
antenna was not up), this may
result in an empty or incomplete list of available stations.
If you have poor reception of some stations (burbling), you may wish to list only
stations with good signal strength.
w w w . a r g o n a u d i o . c o m
52
iNet3+
To start a scan manually, select Menu > Scan.

type, ensemble name/frequency, signal strength/error rate, bit rate/codec/channels and today’s date.
7.4 Settings
Dynamic range compression
Some DAB broadcasts offer dynamic range compression (DRC). This feature allows radios to compress the
dynamic range of the output audio stream, so that the volume of quiet sounds is increased, and the volume of
loud sounds is reduced. This can be useful if you are listening to music with a high dynamic range in a noisy
environment (for example, classical music while cooking).
To change the DRC of the iNet3+, select Menu > DRC, and then DRC high, DRC low or DRC off.
Note: The iNet3+’s DRC setting does have any effect if DRC data is not included in the broadcast.
Station order
You can choose the order of the DAB station list to be either Alphanumeric, Ensemble or Valid. Ensemble
lists groups of stations that are broadcast together on the same ensemble, for example BBC or South Wales
local. Valid lists valid stations first, alphanumerically, then off-air stations.
To change station order, select Menu > Station order > then Alphanumeric, Ensemble or Valid.

12. Software upgrades and factory reset
12.1 Software upgrade
From time to time, Argon may make software upgrades available with bug fixes and/or additional
features. You can either check manually, or set iNet3+ to check periodically automatically (this is
the default). If iNet3+ detects that newer software is available, it asks 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.
CAUTION:
Before starting a software upgrade, ensure that iNet3+ is plugged
into a stable mains power connection. Disconnecting power
during a software update may permanently damage the unit.
To turn automatic checking on or off, select Menu > System settings > Software update >
Auto-check setting.
12.2 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 Proceed > Yes.
