3.4. Setting up the music player
There are two Music Player modes available. Each of them requires different settings, and either one
can be used to playback music from a media server.
3.4.1 Shared folders (CIFS)
In order to set up the device to playback music stored on shared network drives, user name, password
and domain settings must be configured to work with the PC share settings. This is only required if
the user has set a password on his/her shared folders.
PC: Domain/Workgroup configuration
The Domain configuration item can be found on a Windows XP machine as follows:
1. From the start menu, select Control Panel > System then select the “Computer Name Tab”.
2. The Domain or Workgroup that this Computer is a member of is displayed in this tab.
3. Please set the PC to a Domain or Workgroup. To do this click on the change button on the
computer name tab. Please set the Domain name as “MSHOME” (This is the default setting of
Window XP).
4. A reboot of the PC may be prompted if the Domain or Workgroup has been changed.
PC: Setting up a new user account (Windows XP)
The Wi-Fi Radio requires a user account to be set up on each PC that you wish to browse. By
default most PCs have at least one user account associated with it. The user name and password
(optional) needs to be the same on each PC as the Internet Radio only stores one user name and
one password. For windows XP this can be set up as follows:
1. From the start menu, select Control Panel -> User accounts
2. From this screen left click the ‘Add …’, and enter the new user name and the Domain/Workgroup
setting noted above. Select the type of user (restricted) and then select finish.
3. Select the user just created, select ‘Reset Password …’ and enter a password for this user.
4. Note the User Name and Password.
Note for Windows VISTA: Users have to turn on the Guest account via manage user accounts in the
control panel in VISTA, then add access to either ‘Everyone’ or ‘Guest’ on the shared drive. They
could create a new account for the internet radio, with a password, if they are concerned about
security. The Guest account has no password by default, so the Wi-Fi radio will connect to it from its
factory default settings.
PC: Configuring a shared drive
From the Start menu select My Computer and navigate to the directory you wish to share. Right
click on the directory and select Sharing and Security. Configure the shared drive as read only, and
ensure that the User Name created above has read access to the share.
Wi-Fi Radio: Storing the username and password
Before the radio can stream music from a PC, you need to ensure you have shared folder available
on the PC, and set up the radio so that it knows the username and password (if one has been set)
for the shared folder on the PC.
15
This can be set up using the PC settings menu shown below in Figure 10:
Figure 10: Navigating to PC Settings menu
3.4.2 Shared media (UPnP)
Media sharing uses Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 and above as media server. This mode does
not require any setting in the radio, but the PC needs to be configured to allow the radio access to
the media. This is the procedure to run uPnP.
1) Put the *.mp3 and *.wma that you are going to share in C:\Documents and Settings\All
Users\Documents\My Music\Sample Music (\\palm\dropbox\ylam\Music\)
2) Install Windows Media Player 11
(http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/download/download.aspx)
3) Click Library “Media Sharing”
16
4) Check the “Share my media to” box, then click settings
5) Follows the settings below:
17
6) In Windows XP Start Menu Run Type “services.msc”, and please make sure
a. Universal Plug and Play Device Host
b. Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service is “started”.
7) Make sure you laptop / PC and the HAV-IR10 -11 is connected to the same wireless
network. If you are in Frontier Silicon office, make sure your PC and V6 are connected to
Frontier-Visitor
8) Start HAV-IR10 -11 board. Go to Music Player Mode Shared media, and then you
should be able to find your shared music in there.
(I think Shared Media is for UPnP and Share folder is for samba)

playback through the radio. The Music Player can be accessed direct from the Main menu.
The connection process is different depending on the Music Player mode selected.
21
4.3.1. Shared folders
The startup flow when entering Music Player Shared folders mode is shown in Figure 13:
Figure 13: Music Player start up flow
1. Ensure that the user name and password have been configured as described in section 3.4.
2. Enter the music player menu
3. Once the user selects the “MSHOME” domain, a list of PCs on the domain is displayed:
4. Once the Domain and PC have been chosen, a list of all of the shared folders in the system is

5. Select a folder and a file to play within the folder.
6. Press Menu invokes the Music player mode menu, and then back to the Main menu; select
Browse to enter the last selected shared folder.
4.3.2. Shared media
The shared media mode uses UPnP technology to make easier both setting up and navigating the
Music playback mode. Unless the Upnp network has been setup in the PC, for example by Window
Media Player 11, or this will not be functioned. In this mode, the connection sequence is as detailed
in Figure.
Figure 14: Connection flow sequence in Shared media mode
23
4.4 FM radio
Figure 15: FM mode menu structure
The FM mode menu allows setting up the following:
Name
Description
Scan setting
The Scan settings menu allows the user to set how an FM search started by pressing
the rotary control.
‘Strong stations only’ will only stop under strong signal strengths. This means that
the audio quality of services that it stops on should be good, there is also the
chance that desired services may be missed.
‘All stations’ will stop under many more circumstances, including Carrier Wave and
other non-broadcast interference. Whilst this means that there will be more stops, it
will be more likely for the user to scan a desired service.
Audio setting The Audio settings menu allows the user to set whether to always play stereo
stations in mono mode, or whether to switch stereo stations to mono when the
signal quality gets below a certain threshold.
Manual
Tuning
Users could also tune the FM frequency by turning the rotary control
24
4.5 Presets
Presets are a system that allows the user to store a build-configurable number of preset stations in
each mode. The behaviour of presets is different in each individual mode because of the way that
the preset is stored within the system.
Presets are available in the following modes:
• Internet Radio
• DAB
• FM
A short press of a preset is used to recall a preset; a long hold of a key is used to store a preset.
When a DAB or FM preset is stored after a long-press, a splash screen is displayed for a set time,
with the information on the bottom line replaced by a ‘Preset stored’ string. The example below is for
DAB:
Any key press will cancel this splash screen and perform a relevant action; for instance, pressing
‘Info’ will close the splash screen and alter the Information field on the bottom line. Likewise, pressing
‘Up’ closes the splash screen and goes to the service list.
A short press of a preset key recalls a preset; if the preset has already been set then the radio
attempts to tune to the relevant service. Any failure to tune is reported in the normal way.
If the preset is currently unset, then another splash screen is displayed with ‘Preset empty’ on the
bottom line:
In the case of DAB, FM and Internet radio, presets point to a defined service. This is not possible in
Music Player mode, which consequently has no presets.
25
5 Software Upgrade through the Internet
The user could update the operation software to improve the performance. Please select the “Software
Upgrade” in the “System Setup” menu. To access this feature, please refer to the figure 19 below.
Figure 16 Navigating to the Software upgrade menu
The radio could search for updated software automatically when the connection was established
(either wired or wireless). This may take a few second. If the radio is not connected to the network, or a
connection has not yet been set up, please follow the section 3.3 to setup your Internet connection.
If the more updated version of software is available, the user will be asked to confirm the upgrade.
Once the process is initiated, a progress bar will show in the display and the warning “not to remove
power” will be flashing in the screen periodically. This is very important in order to keep the radio
operational. If the power of the radio was cut during the upgrade, the user setting or information in
the radio may be lost.
Once the update is completed, either “upgrade successful” or “failure” will be informed to the user. If
successful, pressing <select> to restart the radio with the new software.
Note: After a software upgrade all user settings are preserved.
The whole process is summarised in Figure 19.
