Getting started
Location
The Internet radio should work anywhere within 100 metres
of the router, but this really depends on the access point
being used.
IMPORTANT
Before you continue, make sure that
your wireless router is powered up
and connected to the Internet. To get
this part of the system working you
must refer to the instructions supplied
with the router.
If you have a wireless laptop available
you can check that the wireless
network is up and working.
Setting up
1. Connect the power
Plug the mains power cord into the socket on the back of the
radio marked 7.5V DC and plug the other end into the mains
power wall socket. The display on the front of the radio will
come on and show Reciva Radio ARM Powered, then after a
few seconds you will see <Scan for networks>.
2. Scan for a wireless network connection
Press Back at any time to return to
the previous screen.
If the radio cannot find any wireless
networks, the display will show No
Wireless Networks Found. If this
happens, you will need to refer to the
instructions supplied with your
wireless access point to make sure it is
working correctly.
The name for the access point may
also be referred to as the ESSID.
IMPORTANT
Only connect to an access point you
own or you have agreement to use.
When the display says <Scan for networks>, press Select.
The BT Internet Radio will now scan for all available wireless
networks, whilst doing so the display will show Scanning.
When the radio finds your wireless network, it displays the
name for the access point on the screen - this is a name that
was allocated to the access point by the person who set up
the network, for example < My Home Network >.
It is likely, that your radio will find more than one wireless
access point. If this happens, you can choose which one you
want to connect to. Turn the tuning dial on the radio to see
the name for each access point the radio has found.

displayed, press Select.
If your network is not configured to need an encryption code,
the display should show Connecting to network, then
Network OK.
If the screen displays either Enter WEP key or Enter WPA
key, then the network is using one of the encryption systems:
WEP or WPA and you will need to enter the correct code to
enable the radio to communicate with your network.
After about 3 seconds, the display goes into the code entry
mode. To enter the code, use the tuning dial to select each
character of the code in turn, pressing Select after each
character.
When you have entered the final character, use the tuning
dial to select END and press Select.
The radio should now be able to connect to the network.
4. Connecting a headset (optional)
Connect the headset plug into the socket marked
side of the radio.
Your BT Internet Radio is ready for use.

The WEP or WPA code would have
been set up by the person who set up

shown in the centre of the display
before you press Select.

Using the Media Player
To be able to play music files that you
have stored on your PC via the media
player, please ensure that:
The music files are one of the allowed
type of audio (see list opposite).
The Media Player allows you to play the following types of
audio files: AAC, AU, MP3, RM, WAV, WMA and playlists
(M3U) stored on a networked PC. It has been verified to work
on Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Music files are not ‘protected’.
Music files are stored in the correct
location on your PC and ‘File Sharing’
is switched on.
Music files can be shared on the
network.
For more information or help with any
of the above, please refer to your
PC/Windows XP instruction manual or
‘Help’ section.
Set up your Windows PC to allow the
radio to access your audio files via
Windows Shares
There are 2 ways of sharing audio files on your computer to
be able to play them on your BT Internet radio. The first and
simplest way, is using the ‘Windows Shares’ application on
Windows XP or Windows 2000. This method of file sharing is
best suited to compressed music files, for example .MP3 or
.WMA.
This method of file sharing is not recommended if your music
files are stored as large, uncompressed files, for example .WAV
files. If this is how your music is stored, we recommend you
follow the second method of file sharing and refer to the
section ‘Set up a Windows PC to allow the radio to access
your audio files via a UPnP server’.
Internet Radio – New Style – Edition 5 – 21.09.06 – 7690
Using the Media Player
Ensure your PC is connected to the same access point/subnet
as your Radio. Then make a note of your PC network name by
right clicking on ‘My Computer’, clicking on ‘Properties’ going
into ‘Computer Name’ (for Windows XP).
If you use smaller, compressed audio
files, such as .MP3 or .WMA files, you
can store much more music on your
PC as the files take up much less
memory space.
1. Using Windows Explorer, locate the folder where your audio
files are stored.
2. Right click on the folder.
3. Select ‘Properties’.
4. When the ‘Properties’ window opens, click on the ‘Sharing’ tab.
5. Select ‘Share this folder on the network’ and ‘Allow network
users to change my files’.
Locating shared audio files using the radio
1. Switch on the radio.
2. Wait for Stations to be displayed on the radio (or press Back
repeatedly until Stations is displayed).
3. Turn the tuning dial until Media Player is displayed and
press Select.
4. Turn the tuning dial until Windows Shares is displayed and
press Select.
5. Turn the tuning dial until Scan for PCs is displayed and
press Select.
Do not make your ‘My Documents’ or
any of its sub-folders (e.g. ‘My Music’)
shareable.

folders on that PC.
7. Turn the tuning dial to highlight the correct shared folder and
press Select.
If you have a large number of audio
files this scan could take several

files are stored. This is in order to
speed up subsequent file scans.

files in the shared folder. Text on the bottom row of the display
will change to indicate that the file scan is in progress.

Set up a Windows PC to allow the radio to
access your audio files via a UPnP server
If your music is stored as large, uncompressed files, for example
.WAV, we recommend you follow this method of file sharing.
If your PC is running ‘Microsoft Windows XP’, then you can
use ‘Windows Media Connect’ to act as your UPnP (Universal
Plug and Play) MediaServer 1.0 compliant server. You can
download ‘Windows Media Connect’ from Microsoft’s website
and install it by following the instructions detailed in its
installation wizard.
1. You will first need to configure Windows Media Connect to
allow certain devices to connect to it. To do this, select
‘Settings’ from Windows Media Connect and tick the box
‘Automatically allow new devices’, as shown below.

If your music is stored as smaller,
compressed files, for example .MP3 or
.WMA we recommend you follow the
‘Window Shares’ method of file sharing
outlined in the section ‘Set up your
Windows PC to allow the radio to access
your audio files via Windows Shares’.

Help
If you experience any problems when using your BT Internet Radio, first refer to the Help section
below, if your question still remains unanswered you can look in the ‘Help’ section of the
following website: http://www.reciva.com
I cannot connect the radio to the wireless network
• Make sure that your connected PC can access the Internet (i.e. can browse the web) using the
same network.
• Check that a DHCP server is available, or that you have configured a static IP address on the
radio.
• Check that your firewall is not blocking any outgoing ports. As a minimum the radio needs access
to UDP and TCP ports 80, 554, 1755, 5000 and 7070.
• Check your access point does not restrict connections to particular MAC addresses. You can view
the radio’s MAC address using the menu item Configure -> Network Config -> View Config ->
MAC address. If the MAC address is not listed, you will need to add it. Refer to the manufacturer’s
guide for your access point for instructions on how to add your BT Internet Radio to the list of
allowed equipment.
• If you have an encrypted network, check that you have entered the correct key or pass phrase
into the radio. Remember that text-format keys are case sensitive.
I can connect to the network successfully, but am unable to play particular stations.
• Not all stations broadcast 24 hours a day. The station may not be broadcasting at this time of the
day (remember it may be located in a different time zone).

station with a PC, use the form at http://www.reciva.com/stations/add_station.asp to notify us
so that we can change the station data that is used by the radio.
I cannot seem to share audio files for playback on the BT Internet radio.
• Check that the music files you want to share are one of the allowed type of audio: AAC, AIFF,
MP3, RM, WAV, WMA and playlists (M3U) stored on a networked PC.
• Check that the music files are not ‘protected’. (Refer to your PC/Windows XP instruction manual
or ‘Help’ section.)
• Check that the music files are stored in the correct location on your PC and ‘File Sharing’ is
switched on. (Refer to your PC/Windows XP instruction manual or ‘Help’ section.)
• Check that the music files can be shared on the network.
• If you are trying to share large, uncompressed files, for example. WAV files you must make sure
you follow the section ‘Set up your Windows PC to allow the radio to access your audio files via a
UPnP server’, on page 25.
If you are having trouble connecting to your Windows XP shared music folder, and you are using
a username with no password, try adding a new username with a password to Windows (Control
Panel – User Accounts) specifically for the radio, and try to connect using that.
