Important information
•
•
•
•
•
•
Please install and connect the product in the order as described in this manual only.
This assures best installation results with the least technical hassles.
Please read this guide carefully before using the SL400i; 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 (min. 256 kbps) is required if you want to use the Internet
functions of the SL400i.
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.
Watching Internet video at 700 kbps exceeds a 1 GB limit in 3 hours.
During set-up and installation, it may be helpful to have the instructions for your TV set,
audio system and wireless base station or other wireless network components
(if appropriate) at hand.
Safety Precautions
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
NEVER MAKE OR CHANGE CONNECTIONS WITH THE POWER SWITCHED ON.
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 the SL400i 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 outlet.
Make sure the air around the SL400i can circulate to prevent the SL400i from overheating
internally. Also, avoid putting any heat sources (e.g. a power amplifier) underneath.
The SL400i 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 mains, let the
set cool down, improve ventilation, and reconnect the set to the mains.

Chapter 3 - Enabling broadband Internet entertainment
If you have a broadband Internet connection (min. 256 kbps), you can stream Internet radio stations and movie trailers live from the Internet to the
SL400i for free. Broadband internet also provides the on-line upgrades for the SL400i.
The Internet entertainment offering is constantly being improved and new functions are added.Visit www.philips.com/streamium for the latest
possibilities.
3.1 How does your computer connect to the Internet?
Option A: With a wired broadband Internet connection:
If you have a PC with a wired broadband Internet
connection, you will have to make that Internet connection
available to the wireless (or wired) network that connects to
the SL400i.
To do this, install router/gateway software on the PC for
bridging the broadband Internet connection to the wireless or
wired network.
INTERNET
As an example we have included a chapter on page 46-50 of
the extended User Manual on the Philips Media Manager CD
on how to enable Internet Connection Sharing from your
Microsoft®Windows® operating system. For Microsoft® and
other operating systems, third party router/gateway software is
readily available on the market.
This applies to both a
wired and a wireless
connection between
your PC and the SL400i.
or
For more information on sharing an Internet connection, read
the documentation that came with the software or with your
operating system.
> After bridging the internet connection to your wireless (or
wired) network, you will be able to use the SL400i to access
the Internet just like your computer.
Option B: Through a wireless base station:
Wireless base stations (and wired internet gateway routers)
share their broadband Internet access automatically within the
network.
> The SL400i will be able to access the Internet just like your
other wireless or wired network computer(s).
INTERNET
This also applies to a wired
connection between your
internet gateway router
and the SL400i.

ENGLISH
Chapter 13 - What you need to know about
networks
Important note:The SL400i 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
41
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.

ENGLISH
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 SL400i 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 200 meters 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
neighbouring 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 the Wired
Equivalent Privacy (WEP) network encryption key to help prevent unauthorised connections or
the possibility of eavesdroppers listening in on your network traffic.
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 SL400i.
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
43
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 neighbours 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 SL400i.
The Wireless MAC address of the SL400i 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 on a regular basis.
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
minimise 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.
44
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 SL400i 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 SL400i, 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 USB Adapter and for the SL400i.
a) Setting the encryption key for the SL400i:

press the OK button.
> The SL400i 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
45
b) Setting the encryption key for your Wireless USB Adapter:
Enter the same encryption key for the Wireless USB Adapter.
See the User Manual of the Wireless USB Adapter on how to do this.
> Once you have activated the same encryption key for the Wireless USB Adapter, the

ENGLISH
Chapter 16 - Internet Connection Sharing
Before you press the INTERNET button for the first time, you need to make sure that the
SL400i 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 (either wired or wireless) the SL400i to an existing network host with
Internet access:
Prefered solution:
If you have an existing home network with centrally shared broadband Internet access for all
connected computers, you can connect the SL400i directly to your central network device: the
router/gateway.That way, the SL400i can access the Internet just like your other computers and
you do not need to install ICS to make Internet access available to your SL400i.
If you connect the SL400i (by wires or wireless) to a stand-alone or client PC with Internet
access:
If you connect the Wireless USB 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 SL400i, 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 SL400i.
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 on its network, this computer is the only
Internet connection, 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
47
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.
Movies will not play:
The bit rate might be too high. Convert the movie to a lower bit rate.
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 SL400i'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 SL400i.
If you are using a firewall, check whether you have opened the ports
42951 TCP and 42591 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 SL400i. 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.

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 SL400i 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.

is everything above 256 kbps.
Chroma Delay
Color fine-tuning for different types of TV screens.
Codec
A software format for compressing and de-compressing media.
DHCP
If a network has a central host computer, wireless base station or router that acts as a
DHCP server, this server allocates IP addresses, netmasks, and the gateway address to all
DHCP client computers and devices in the network automatically.
Ethernet
The most popular type of wired home network.
Firewall
A firewall acts as a barrier that helps protect your network from intruders from the Internet.
