IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Danger
Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause a permanent
hearing loss. Individuals vary considerably to noise induced hearing
loss but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to sufficiently
intense noise for a sufficient time. The U.S. Government's
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified
the following permissible noise level exposures:
DURATION PER DAY (HOURS) 8 6 4 3 2 1
SOUND LEVEL (dB)
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
90 93 95 97 100 103
8.
According to OSHA, any exposure in the above permissible limits could
result in some hearing loss. Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canal or over
the ears must be worn when operating this amplification system in order to
prevent a permanent hearing loss. If exposure in excess of the limits as
put forth above, to insure against potentially harmful exposure to high
sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all persons exposed to
equipment capable of inducing high sound pressure levels, such as this
amplification system, be protected by hearing protectors while this unit is in
operation.

1. USB Ports: Three USB ports allow the Music Port to see and stream audio content from attached drives. This feature
will be available in a future release.
2. Ethernet: This RJ45 port allows the Music Port to connect to the home’s network. This enables the music files on the
home’s network to be shared on the Music Port’s hard drive and the streaming of online Pandora, RadioTime™, SIRIUS
and XM Internet radio stations.
3. Passthrough RS232: The NuVo distributed audio systems are capable of being controlled serially by a third party home
automation system. This DB9 input is designed to pass incoming serial commands through to the adjacent RS232 output. This
allows both Client interface control from network computers of the attached NuVo audio system, and third party serial control
of the same NuVo system.
4. NuVo RS232 : This DB9 port connects to the attached NuVo distributed audio system. This allows any computer on the
home’s network to operate the Client interface for control of audio zones, source selection, and access to the music library. It
also works with the adjacent Passthrough RS232 port to send control commands from a third party home automation system
to the attached NuVo audio system.
5. NuVoNet: This RJ45 port connects to the attached NuVo distributed audio system and allows full source metadata display
and control from the NuVo system Control Pads.
6. Audio Outputs: The Music Port has four independent stereo RCA audio outputs that allow its audio streaming
content and stored music file audio signal to be sent to any audio distribution system or amplifier.
7. AC Power: A standard detachable IEC power cord supplies power to the NV-NV-MPS4. A switching power supply allows the
Music Port to operate worldwide at any voltage.

computer, you simply enter your account information into the Pandora Radio section of the Content page. If you do not have
an account, you can establish one using the embedded link, “Click here to sign up for Pandora Radio”.
Radio Time: This is another free service. It is not necessary to have an account to access the available radio stations. The
account is necessary if you want the NV-MPS4 to be able to access presets created on Radiotime.com.
XM and SIRIUS Satellite Radio: These are subscription services with specialized programming. Note that you must
have four separate SIRIUS accounts to allow for four separate simultaneous streams from different stations. This is not true for
XM.
Contributing Computers: Listed here are all computers synced to the Music Port. To remove a contributing computer
click the ‘X’ listed to the left of the computer name. This will remove all content contributed by this computer.
12
Firmware: This tab allows you to update the firmware, load the computer based Music Port Client control, and setup
music sharing with the Music Port, Fig. 15.
Fig. 15
Firmware Update: This download utility will prompt you when a new version is available. When you click on the supplied
link, the newest version will automatically update the NV-MPS4. If “No firmware update is currently available” appears, no
further action is necessary. It is important to note that the NV-NV-MPS4 is not updated over NuVoNet.
Other Software: There are two links here under the title “Music Port Client”, and a third application called the Music Port
Sync Tool are contained in this section.
Music Port Client: The Client is a network computer application that provides full control of the content both personal
and online streaming from any computer on the same LAN. When the RS232 serial connection is made to the NuVo Distributed
Audio System, the Client will also allow access to all of the System zones, and sources with basic source and zone control, see
section I. Installing the NV-NV-MPS4 as Part of a NuVo Distributed Audio System, page 6.
Start Music Port Client in this browser window: This link will open the Music Port Client
interface in an internet browser window. When the Client is open, it is easily saved as a “favorite” for future access.
This application is recommended for Mac users.
Install the Music Port Client stand alone application: This link opens an install wizard that installs the
Client as a standalone program on the PC. Once loaded the Client interface is easily accessed from a desktop icon. It
is important to load the Client on any user PC’s as part of the installation process of the Music Port.
For a detailed description of the Client interface see the Music Port User Guide.
Install the Music Port Sync tool stand alone application: This link will open an install wizard that loads
the Music Port Sync Tool on any networked PC. This is the application that allows content from your computer to be
shared with the Music Port and the associated NuVo Distributed Audio System. This tool will be covered in the next
section, IV. Loading and Using the Music Port Sync Tool, page 14.
Support: The Remote Support section allows NuVo Technical Support to provide a security code to enable external access to
the Remote Configuration Tool. This is only used for troubleshooting purposes.
13
IV. Loading and Using the Music Port Sync Tool

Summary: The Summary tab provides overview of the Music Port. Here you will see the current operating version and IP
address, Fig. 18. The Summary tab will provide a progress report of any music sync activity.

iTunes: This tab points to the actual library on the user’s hard drive, and syncs the chosen content with the Music Port.
Under “Sync Settings”, you have the choice to “Automatically update iTunes music”. This choice will allow you to “Update all
music” or “Update selected playlists”. Any selection made here will automatically sync with the NV-MPS4, Fig. 19. The
Music Port will not play M4P protected content purchased and downloaded from iTunes. As of April of 2009
all content purchased from iTunes is unprotected and compatible with the NV-MPS4.

Windows Media: The Windows Media tab works like the iTunes tab. The choices and actions taken by the Music Port are
identical. The difference is that the Sync Tool is looking at the content in Windows Media Player. It is possible to share content
both from iTunes and Media Player, Fig. 20.
Fig. 20
Advanced: Rather than sharing music from a specific iTunes or Media Player library, you can point directly to a music
folder or directory on the network. This allows any music content to be placed in a shared directory for access by the Music
Port. Any music files copied to the shared folder will be seen by the Music Port and will automatically sync. Click on “Add...”
and this will open a window that allows you to browse folders on the network, Fig. 21.
