Important information
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
A wireless network adapter or a wireless base station is required when integrating your
SL50i in a wireless computer network.
Please install and connect the product in the order described in this manual only.
This assures best installation results with the least technical hassles.
Please read this guide carefully before using your SL50i and keep it for future reference.
The most recent downloads and information on this product will be available through our
website www.philips.com/streamium.
Broadband Internet access is required if you want to use the Internet functions of your
SL50i. A bitrate of at least 256 kbps is preferred, but depending on the Internet
radiostations you listen to, lower bitrates may be sufficient.
Please check whether your Internet service provider charges extra fees for exceeding a
certain limit of transferred data.
When using Internet media services on a daily basis, you may exceed such a limit.
For example: When you listen to Internet radio (at 64 kbps) for about 36 hours,
1 GB (gigabyte) of data will be transferred to your Streamium system.
During set-up and installation, it may be helpful to have the instructions for your audio
system, wireless base station or other wireless network components at hand.
Safety Precautions
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
NEVER MAKE OR CHANGE CONNECTIONS WITH THE POWER OF YOUR AUDIO
SYSTEM SWITCHED ON OR YOUR SL50i CONNECTED TO THE ELECTRICAL
POWER SUPPLY.
Before operating the system, check that the operating voltage indicated on the nameplate
(or the voltage indication beside the voltage selector) of your system is identical with the
voltage of your local power supply. If not, please consult your dealer.
Radio equipment for wireless applications is not protected against disturbance from other
radio services.
The product should not be exposed to dripping or splashing.
No object filled with liquids, such as vases, should be placed on the product.
Do not expose the system to excessive moisture, rain, sand or heat sources caused by
heating equipment or direct sunlight.
Allow a sufficient amount of free space all around your SL50i for adequate ventilation.
Do not open this product. Contact your Philips retailer if you experience technical
difficulties.
Place the system on a flat, hard and stable surface. When the system is switched to standby
mode, it is still consuming some power.To disconnect the system from the power supply
completely, remove the AC power plug from the wall socket.
Make sure the air around your SL50i can circulate to prevent your SL50i from overheating
internally. Also, avoid putting any heat sources (e.g. a power amplifier) underneath.
Your SL50i has a thermal shutdown that shuts down the set when the internal
temperature exceeds a certain threshold. If this happens, the set switches to standby with
the Power-LED flashing on and off.To remedy this situation: disconnect the power supply,
let the set cool down, improve the ventilation, and reconnect the set to the power supply.
To prevent your SL50i from overheating internally, never place anything on top of it.

Place the Philips Media Manager CD in your CD or DVD drive and install the Philips
Media Manager software.
The CD starts automatically. If it does not, double-click ‘My Computer’,
then the CD-ROM drive icon and finally ‘Setup.exe’ to start the CD.
2
In the menu that appears on your computer screen, click on ‘Install Philips Media
Manager’, and follow the on-screen instructions.
Start the program by clicking Start > Programs > Philips Media Manager.
When opening the Philips Media Manager for the first time, you will be asked if you want
to add a folder and scan for audio files. Open a drive or a folder with audio files in it. (For
example: the My Documents folder, if you have stored audio files there.)
– You can always add more files and folders later.
3
Adding files to the Media Manager.
Only the files that you see in the Media Manager will be accessible from your SL50i and
only the files that are supported by your SL50i will be available for your audio system.
A) Click 'Music'.
B) First, click the 'Add Music' button below the media categories,
then click 'Add Files or Folders...'.
C) Select a folder or one or more audio files and click the 'Open' button to add the
selected folder or files to the Media Manager window.

Chapter 10 - Advanced navigation
10.1 Navigation view
The view shown on the display is called the 'Navigation View'. It helps you operate the SL50i via
the menu as described in section 4.1 ‘Basic menu navigation’.There are however some advanced
ways of navigating through the menus and menu items which we describe in the next chapters.
10.1.1 Jump To (number keys on the remote control)
Use the remote control number buttons to access an item in a list directly by entering the first
letter(s) or number(s) of the desired item.
If the list is sorted alphabetically, you do this by pressing the number buttons on the remote
control in SMS TEXT style.
For example: pressing the ‘2’ key several times will cycle through the following characters:
A – B – C – 2... etc.
If the list is sorted numerically, items can be selected by entering numbers directly (not in SMS
TEXT style). Press OK to confirm your selection.
10.1.2 Smart Navigation
Smart Navigation helps you to navigate 'intelligently' through the menus by remembering the
menu path(s) you have taken previously (during the same session). Smart Navigation must be
enabled in the Preferences submenu.
If you have backed out of a menu path by pressing the 1 button repeatedly, Smart Navigation
will remember that path for the duration of the current session.
By pressing 2 repeatedly, you will follow the same path through the menus.
At any time, you may deviate from your path and follow a new one (this new branch will also
be remembered by the Smart Navigation feature).
Switch Smart Navigation off (see ‘System menu’ on page 27) to always select the first menu
item on a new page.
If you would like to quickly access content you previously visited, the Favorites and Recent
features (see below) are better suited for this purpose.

Chapter 13 - What you need to know about
networks
Important note:The SL50i has a built-in wireless network adapter and is a wireless
network device exactly like the PCs with a wireless network adapter
in the illustrations below.
A network provides a means of communication between two or more computers (and other
devices) that are connected to each other through wired or wireless means.
WIRED
At each computer, you will need a network adapter or Network Interface Card (NIC) to be
able to connect the computer to the network cable. Examples are:
Ethernet
Already built-in
PCI expansion card USB/Ethernet cable Ethernet notebook
adapter
WIRELESS
At each computer, you will need to install a WiFi wireless network adapter to be able to
connect to another wireless network device. Examples are:
Already built-in
Wireless PCI
expansion card
Wireless USB
adapter
Wireless notebook
adapter
You do not need to open your PC to connect a wireless USB/notebook adapter (available from
Philips) or USB/Ethernet cable to your PC.
ENGLISH
33
In a network, the computers need to be able to connect to each other physically.Therefore,
another important network property is how the computers connect to each other, either
directly or through a central device.
ONE-ON-ONE WIRED NETWORK
also known as: Direct connection network (max. two PCs)
Note: Use a crossover Ethernet cable to connect two computers directly to each other.
WIRED NETWORK WITH MORE THAN TWO PCs
Use a hub or switch to connect more than two PCs to each other.
Note: Use straight-through Ethernet cables to connect the computers to the central device
(hub/switch).
HOW TO INTERCONNECT WIRED NETWORKS
INTERNET
Use a gateway router to connect one network to another (e.g. to the Internet,
also known as WAN).
ONE-ON-ONE WIRELESS NETWORK
also known as: ad-hoc / peer-to-peer
WIRELESS NETWORK WITH MORE THAN TWO PCs
The wireless medium forms a hub in and of itself.
No hardware hub is needed.
Note: For very small networks only.
BRIDGING WIRELESS NETWORKS TO THE INTERNET
(e.g. the Internet, also known as WAN) also known as: infrastructure / access point.
Use a wireless access point or base station.
INTERNET
Central devices, like a hub, switch, router or wireless base station may be stand-alone devices or
built into a computer.
• A hub has multiple ports and serves as a central connection point for communication lines
from all computers on a wired network. It copies all data arriving at one port to the other
ports. A switch is similar to a hub, but is able to handle different network speeds at each
port.
• Gateway routers and wireless base stations route network traffic from one network to
another (e.g. from a wired network to the Internet, or from a wireless network to a wired
network or to the Internet).
Important: Wired and wireless components may be linked together to provide a variety of network
layouts/topologies.

Chapter 14 - Advanced wireless network
information
What are wireless network connections?
Your wireless network adapter uses a wireless protocol (called IEEE 802.11b/g or WiFi) to
communicate with the SL50i by means of radio transmissions. WiFi radio waves travel outwards
from the antenna in all directions, and can transmit through walls and floors. WiFi can
theoretically reach up to 656 feet in an open environment and reach speeds of up to 11 (b) or
54 (g) megabits per second (Mbps) at close range. However, the actual network range and data
throughput rate will always be less, depending on the wireless signal quality.
Factors determining your network range and network speed
•
•
•
•
•
Wireless signals travel farther outside of buildings, and when the wireless components are
in direct line of sight to one another. Putting wireless components high up helps avoid
physical obstacles and provides better coverage.
Building construction such as metal framing and concrete or masonry walls and floors will
reduce radio signal strength. Avoid putting wireless components next to walls and other
large, solid objects; or next to large metal objects such as computers, monitors, and
appliances.
Wireless signal range, speed, and strength can be affected by interference from neighboring
wireless networks and devices. Electromagnetic devices such as televisions, radios,
microwave ovens, and cordless telephones, especially those with frequencies in the 2.4 GHz
range, may also interfere with wireless transmission.
Standing or sitting too close to wireless equipment can also affect radio signal quality.
Adjusting the antennas: Certain areas, such as directly below the antenna, get relatively
poor reception. Moving the antenna slightly may improve your reception.
Note: Pointing the antenna toward another wireless component will not improve reception.
Securing your wireless network
Since wireless computer networks use radio signals, it is possible for other wireless network
devices outside your immediate area to pick up the wireless signals and either connect to your
network or to capture the network traffic.Therefore, you should always enable a network
encryption key to help prevent unauthorised connections or the possibility of eavesdroppers
listening in on your network traffic. For the SL50i you can enable either the WEP (Wired
Equivalent Privacy) encryption key or the WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) encryption key.
What is WEP?
WEP is a 64-bit or 128 bit encryption key for securing your wireless network communication.
Preferably, you should use the highest encryption strength available. Always enter the same key
with the same length for all your home network computers and for the SL50i.
What is WPA?
WPA is a Wi-Fi standard that is designed to improve the security features of WEP. WPA
technology is designed to work with Wi-Fi products that have been enabled with WEP (as a
software upgrade to existing hardware).Through improved data encryption WPA ensures that
only authorized network users can access the network.
Securing your network from Internet access
Check in the documentation of your Wireless Base Station or gateway router whether it
provides you with a built-in firewall and network address translation (NAT), providing security
for an ‘always-on’ broadband Internet connection that is being shared among the computers and
devices on your home network.
Computers on an ad-hoc network may share an Internet connection that is set up on one of
the computers (ICS). However, a firewall is usually not built-in and you should install one on the
computer that is sharing the Internet connection.
What is a firewall?
A firewall acts as a barrier that helps protect your network from outside intruders.The firewall
specifies what information can be communicated from the computers on your network to the
Internet, and from the Internet to the computers on your network.
ENGLISH
35
The DOs and DON'Ts of securing your wireless network
DO
Enable the highest WEP key level that your hardware provides for. Upgrade your hardware, if
possible. If you do not protect your wireless network, all data from your PC might be accessible
by, for example, your neighbors or passers-by.
Use a wireless base station or router with network address translation (NAT) and firewall
enabled for sharing your Internet connection.
Change the default passwords for your network devices. Leaving these at default makes it easy
for an outsider to gain access.
Position wireless access points away from windows and toward the center of your home.
This decreases the strength of the signal outside your home.
Some wireless access points allow you to control access based on the unique Media Access
Control (MAC) address of the network adapter trying to associate with it. If a MAC address has
not been registered in the wireless access point, it will not associate with it. If your access point
has this feature, enable it and add the MAC addresses of the network adapters including the
one from the SL50i.
The Wireless MAC address of the SL50i can be found in the Options menu by pressing the
MENU button on the remote control.Then select Network > Wireless Info.
Just use common sense: Install an anti-virus program on each computer on your network and
use it regularly to check your computers for viruses. Remember to update the anti-virus
program regularly.
DON'T
Do not rely on radio transmission range limitations to secure your network. Enable wireless
security (WEP) to protect your network from unwanted access.
Do not use WEP keys and passwords that are easy to guess. Do not change passwords to
reflect your name, address, or anything that would be easy to guess.
Never open attachments to email messages that you are not expecting. In addition, scan all
diskettes and homemade CDs for viruses before opening files from them, or before starting
your computer from them.
Do not load a program from an unknown source onto one of your network computers.
Do not ignore the common signs of viruses: unusual messages that appear on your screen,
decreased system performance, missing data, and inability to access your hard drive. If you
notice any of these problems on your computer, run your anti-virus program immediately to
minimize the chances of losing data.
Do not connect your home network to broadband Internet without taking security measures:
If you do not have a wireless base station installed on your network and you are sharing
Internet access through one of the computers, you may want to consider installing firewall
software.
36
ENGLISH
Chapter 15 - Entering an encryption key
A WEP encryption key protects your wireless network against intrusion by encrypting the data
sent through your network. Its setting must be the same for all PCs and devices in your wireless
network. (Default: Disabled.)

The WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) implemented in this SL50i is based on the RC4
encryption algorithm. Please enter the key in either Hex or ASCII.
– If the key type is Hex, the security keys are four 10 digit keys for the 64-bit WEP setting
and four 26-digit keys for the 128-bit WEP setting (the hexadecimal digits can be 0~9 &
A~F, e.g. D7 0A 9C 7F E5).
– If the key type is ASCII, the security keys are four 5-digit keys for the 64-bit WEP setting
and four 13-digit keys for the 128-bit WEP setting.
– Consult the ASCII/HEX conversion table if you need to translate a (case-sensitive) ASCII
key into HEX notation. Example: MNode (ASCII) = 4D 4E 6F 64 65 (HEX).
Note: Some wireless network devices allow you to type in a passphrase instead of an encryption key.
Do not use passphrases with the SL50i, since passphrases are not supported.
Tip: Enable the encryption key to secure your wireless computer network from intruders.
Use an encryption key to secure your wireless network.The encryption key is like a
password that you have to set for your Wireless Network Adapter and for the SL50i.
a) Setting the encryption key for the SL50i:

Press the MENU button on the remote control, then
select ‘Network’, and
select ‘WEP encryption’ or ‘WPA encryption’.
Enter a 5, 10, 13 or 26 character password (see above) for WEP encryption or a
passphrase for WPA encryption.
Press the OK button.
> The SL50i will try to reconnect to the wireless network and will lose its connection with
your computer.
Note that the encryption key is case sensitive, meaning that ‘HELLO’ is not the same password
as ‘hello’ or ‘Hello’.
ENGLISH
37
b) Setting the encryption key for your Wireless Network Adapter:
Enter the same encryption key for the Wireless Network Adapter.
See the User Manual of the Wireless Network Adapter on how to do this.
> Once you have activated the same encryption key for the Wireless Network Adapter,
the connection between the SL50i and your computer will be re-established.
Example, for the Philips Wireless USB Adapter:
1 Double-click the CPWUA Monitor icon in the lower right corner of your computer
monitor.
2 Click the 'Configuration' tab.
3 Adapt the 'Encryption' settings in the lower part of this window to match the
encryption settings of the SL50i.
4 Click 'Apply' and 'Save' to finish.
> The connection will be re-established.
Note: If you have forgotten your encryption key, switch off encryption or set a new encryption key for
your entire wireless network and for the SL50i.
38
ENGLISH
Chapter 16 - Internet Connection Sharing
Before you press the INTERNET button for the first time, you need to make sure that the
SL50i has Internet access, either directly through a wireless base station, or indirectly through a
PC with Internet access and router/gateway software (e.g. ICS from the Windows OS) installed
and running.
If you connect the SL50i to an existing network host with Internet access:
Preferred solution:
If you have an existing home network with centrally shared broadband Internet access for all
connected computers, you can connect the SL50i directly to your central network device: the
router/gateway.That way, the SL50i can access the Internet just like your other computers and
you do not need to install ICS to make Internet access available to your SL50i.
If you connect the SL50i to a stand-alone or client PC with Internet access:
If you connect the Wireless Network adapter to a stand-alone or client PC with an existing
broadband Internet connection, you will need to bridge - within that PC - the wireless or wired
connection that connects to the SL50i, to the existing network adapter that connects to the
Internet.You do this by enabling Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) from your
Microsoft®Windows® operating system for that PC.This makes the PC share its existing
broadband Internet connection with the SL50i.
ICS configuration and usage issues
ICS is intended for use in small networks in which the network configuration and the Internet
connection are managed by the Windows-based computer on which the shared connection
resides (the ‘host’ computer). It is assumed that this computer is the only Internet connection on
its network, that it is the only gateway to the Internet, and that it sets up all internal network
addresses (this means it is the DHCP server for the network).
If a network has a central host computer or router that acts as a DHCP server, this server
automatically allocates IP addresses, netmasks, and the gateway address to all DHCP client
computers and devices in the network.
Important notes:
– Only Microsoft Windows98 SE (Second Edition) or higher provides ICS, other operating systems
are not supported.You may try to use other router/gateway software at your own discretion.
– You should only install Internet Connection Sharing on the computer that you use to connect to
the Internet.
– The host computer must remain switched on during Internet access sharing.
– ICS is router/gateway software with Dynamic Host Control Protocol server (DHCP) functionality.
The ICS host computer must be the only DHCP server on the network.
Before installing ICS, first disable any DHCP services that are provided on the network
(e.g. by a hardware router/gateway or base station).
Refer to the router/gateway manufacturer's instructions on how to disable its DHCP services.
ENGLISH
39
Enabling Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)
Though ICS works similarly for all operating systems, each version of Microsoft®Windows®
activates Internet Connection Sharing in its own way. Please see below for the operating system
you are using.
In case of trouble, check Windows Help and the Microsoft website for information on Internet
Connection Sharing.
Enabling Internet Connection Sharing for Windows XP
You must have administrative rights to enable ICS in Windows XP.

Chapter 17 - Advanced (Network) Problem
Solving
Go to www.philips.com/streamium for the latest information on problem solving.
Check your broadband Internet speed
At www.2wire.com/meter/bm.html you can check your broadband Internet speed.
This should be more than 240 kbps for the SL50i's Internet function to work.
Check with your Internet Service Provider:
– Whether you may connect more than one device (computers and the Streamium system) to
the internet connection.
– Whether your ISP allows only devices with registered MAC addresses to connect to the
Internet.
– Whether or not you need to set-up proxy servers for HTTP and/or RTSP.
Check whether you have activated the same wireless encryption key
throughout your wireless network:
If you have forgotten your Encryption key, switch off encryption or set a new encryption key for
your entire wireless network and for the SL50i.
If you are using a firewall, check whether you have opened the ports
49153 and 9154,TCP and UDP:
Some ports need to be opened, check at www.philips.com/streamium for the latest information
on which ports need to be open.
Check your network's IP configuration:
Check the Options menu of the SL50i. In the Network > Network Info menu a gateway
address should be present.This should be the IP address of the PC or network device that
connects to the Internet.You can check the network gateway address through your network
adapter program or with IPCONFIG (see below).
Note: Philips Wireless USB/Notebook Adapter users may click the 'Link information' tab in the
CPWUA/CPWNA Monitor program.
Check your computer's IP configuration as follows:
For Windows 98SE / Windows Me:

•
•
Click 'Start', 'Run...', and enter ‘command’.
In the DOS box, type ‘ipconfig /all’ and press Enter.
For each network adapter, you will see results similar to the window on the left.
If your network uses static IP addressing that you have set manually, then you will also need
to choose a unique IP address for the SL50i in the same range as the network's IP
addresses (e.g. 192.168.2.xxx). Use the same subnet mask as your network
(e.g. 255.255.255.000), and write down the IP address of the network device that connects
you to the Internet (the Gateway IP address).
Sometimes your Internet Service Provider requires you to use a proxy address. Check this
with your Internet Service Provider. Alternatively, check the proxy settings of your Internet
browser software for more information.
