installing software
Install the hp digital
media software on the
PC where you store your
music and digital
photos.
It is best to install the
software before setting
up the receiver, so the
receiver has content to
display.
To install the software, insert the CD into the CD-ROM
drive of your computer. The installation program starts
automatically, and you can follow the on-screen
instructions.
Note: If the software does not start automatically, you
can access it from the Start menu on the Windows
taskbar. On the Start menu, click Run. In the Run
dialog box, type x:/setup.exe, where x is the drive
letter of your CD-ROM drive.

hp digital media receiver
The software will share the music and photos in your
My Music and My Pictures folders. To change
these folders or add additional shared folders, see
“sharing content” on page 14.
You can install the software on multiple computers if
you wish to share additional music and photos.
Lexus.book Page 5 Monday, January 6, 2003 2:00 AM
video
s-video
The hp digital media receiver supports s-video. If your
television supports s-video, use an s-video cable (not
included) for a better television picture.
Connect the video cable from the video connector on
the media receiver and attach it to the video input on
your television. Some televisions have video inputs on
the back of the TV and some have them on the front.
Note: If you have run out of video connections on
your TV, connect the media receiver to your VCR.
Note: You should connect either the video cable or
the s-video cable...not both.
For home theater systems, connect the video to your
home theater receiver.

For the best music quality, connect the media receiver
audio output to your home stereo system.
Place the included batteries in the remote control.
Alternately, connect the audio cable to your television.

Match the battery direction shown above for proper
operation.
Lexus.book Page 7 Monday, January 6, 2003 2:00 AM
network connection
In a wired home network, connect the media receiver
to your home network hub or router.
In a wireless home network, no network cable
connection is required (model ew5000 only).
If your computer is connected directly to a cable or DSL
modem, and there is only one network port on the
back of the modem, you do not have a home network.
To set up your network, purchase a modem or router
with additional network ports.
For the best possible reception, rotate the antenna so it
extends perpendicular to the receiver, as shown
above.
A router will allow you to share your internet
connection with other PCs, and allows the media
receiver access to your music and photos stored on
your PC.
Note: For alternate network connections, see
page 39.
The hp digital media receiver can communicate with
wireless access points (infrastructure mode) or directly
to computers with wireless network cards (ad hoc
mode).
Like all wireless devices, some experimentation may be
necessary to find the best location for your media
receiver. Signal strength and quality will depend on
distance, walls, and building structure.

4 sharing content on your pc
server software
server start and stop
The first step toward sharing content is installing the
digital media software on your PC. Simply install the
included software on each PC where you store your
music or digital photos. For installation instructions, see
“installing software” on page 4.
The media server software will start whenever you
power on your PC. If the server software is not running,
you can access it from the Start menu on the Windows
taskbar. On the Start menu, click All Programs,
then hp digital media, and select hp digital
media server. The server icon will appear in your
system tray.
Once the software is
installed, the media server
icon will appear in your
system tray. To configure the
server, click on the icon.
The server shares the music
and photos on your PC with all media receivers on
your network. When you view a photo or music file on
your TV, the server sends (serves) the file to your media
receiver.
To stop the server (and stop sharing your photos and
music on your PC), click on the server icon and select
Shutdown from the server menu.
Note: If the media server is not running, your photos
and music will not be available on your hp digital
media receiver.

server menu
To open the server menu,
click the server icon with
your left or right mouse
button. The server menu will
then display.
Add folders where your music and photos are stored,
or remove folders you no longer wish to share.
Depending on the number of files in your folders, it
may take some time for the receiver to fully list the new
folder contents.
sharing content
The media server will share content in the following
default directory folders:
• My Music
• My Pictures
• MUSICMATCH playlists (if MUSICMATCH
Jukebox is installed)
You can share up to five folders per computer. All
subfolders within a shared folder are shared as well.
To add or change the shared folders, click on the
media server icon and select Settings. A dialog will
appear with a list of shared folders.
14
hp digital media receiver
Note: You cannot share folders that reside on a
network or on removable drives or CDs. Shared folders
must be local (physically attached) to your PC.
Lexus.book Page 15 Monday, January 6, 2003 2:00 AM
synchronizing content
Your music and photos must be synchronized between
the server software on your PC, and the hp digital
media receiver. This can take several minutes or more
the first time, depending on the number of files you are
sharing.
Synchronization will also occur any time you add or
remove files to your shared folders. This occurs very
quickly when adding a small number of files or when
ripping a CD. If you add or remove shared folders, or
drag-and-drop a large subfolder into your shared
folder directories, synchronization will take longer.
forcing resynchronization
While the server software is
synchronizing your files, a
dialog box will be displayed
on your PC. During
synchronization, your music
and photo files will be unavailable on the media
receiver. If all servers are synchronizing, the media
receiver will display a help message to let you know
that “All servers synchronizing”. Your music and
photos will be available once synchronization is
complete.
If some files are not appearing on your media receiver,
or they are appearing incorrectly, try resynchronizing
the server. Click on the server icon, select Settings
from the menu, choose the Maintenance tab, and
click the Resynchronize button. This will force a
resynchronization of all your shared folders.
Note: The synchronization status message can be
hidden. Click on the server icon and uncheck Show
Synch Status. Check the option to turn the status
message on again. During synchronization, the server
icon will display an hourglass.
Note: When photos are resynchronized, the photo
rotation setting will be lost. Photos will again appear in
their original orientation. To permanently rotate your
photos, use your photo editing software to rotate and
save them.
If you have changed a large number of files, or
renamed or restructured your folders, your media
receiver may become out of sync with your server.

about mediaspace
supported music formats
If you run the media server software on more than one
PC on your network, the media receiver will collect all
of the content and display it as one unified list. This list
is called Mediaspace.
The following music file formats are supported:
Mediaspace means all your music and photos are
available on any of your media receivers at any time. It
does not matter where the files are stored.
music quality
Your music listening experience on the receiver
depends upon the quality of your digital music files on
your PC. Avoid quality settings below 48kbps as they
are unsupported. For CD quality music, rip your CDs at
128kbps. In recorders such as MUSICMATCH
Jukebox, 128kbps is the default setting.

hp digital media receiver
• mp3
MPEG Audio file. The standard internet music file
format, and the most common.
• wma
Windows Media Audio file. Supported by the
Microsoft Windows Media player and some
music jukebox programs.
• m3u, pls, and rmp
A playlist file. This is a text file supported by
nearly all music software. A playlist is used for
creating and storing lists of music tracks.
Lexus.book Page 17 Monday, January 6, 2003 2:00 AM
recording digital music
It is easy to digitally record your music onto your PC.
This process is commonly called ripping. To rip a file
with MUSICMATCH Jukebox:
1. Start the MUSICMATCH Jukebox program by
selecting it from your Start menu, or by doubleclicking the MMJB icon on your desktop.
2. Insert a music CD into your CD-ROM drive
3. Click the red recorder button on the player
4. MUSICMATCH will auto-configure your CD-ROM
(this only happens once)
5. If you are connected to the Internet, the CD
lookup service will auto-enter tag information
(album, artist, and song name) into the Recorder
screen.
6. Click the box next to the tracks you want to
record
7. Click Record
The recorded tracks will be placed into your Music
Library when completed. If you have that directory
shared (which is the default), the tracks will appear on
your hp digital media receiver as well.
MUSICMATCH Jukebox is automatically set to record
(rip) music files into the MP3 format at 128kbps, which
is widely accepted as CD quality. If you want to
change the quality settings:
1. Select Options/Settings from the main
dropdown menu
2. Click on the Recorder tab
3. Adjust the quality and format as desired (48kbps
minimum).
copy protection
Some music files are copy protected and can only be
played on your computer. Copy protected files cannot
be played on your hp digital media receiver. If a file is
copy protected, it will not appear in the media receiver
music jukebox.
If you plan on sharing and playing music files on your
media receiver, turn copy protection off when ripping
your own CDs to your PC.

Lexus.book Page 18 Monday, January 6, 2003 2:00 AM
organizing music files
creating music playlists
Your music files can be contained in one directory
folder, or organized in several subfolders...the folder
names are ignored.
Use your favorite music software on your PC to create
music playlists. A playlist allows you to specify exactly
what tracks to play and in what order to play them. For
example, create a “favorites” playlist and just listen to
your favorite tracks. Save the playlist in the industry
standard .m3u playlist format.
The media receiver automatically organize your music
files by genre, artist, album, and tracks. This
information is obtained from the ID3 tags in each of
your music files. The ID3 tag is created for you when
you rip (copy) your music from your CD.
However, if your music files have incorrect or
incomplete tags, the tracks may not appear where they
should in your music jukebox.
MUSICMATCH Jukebox Plus lets you add artist, album
and song information to your entire music library
quickly and easily with Super Tagging. Automatically
tag groups of tracks using the filename, or tag tracks
directly from MUSICMATCH online. You can also

supported photo formats
The following photo file formats are supported:
• bmp
Windows bitmap file. Widely used in Microsoft
Windows for pictures and backgrounds.
• jpg and jpeg
The JPEG format is the Internet and digital photo
format standard used by most digital cameras.
• gif
Older format still widely available on the internet
for photos, web pages, and clip art.
• png
Portable Network Graphics standard created in
response to limitations in the GIF file format.
organizing photo albums
Unlike music files, photos contain very little information
about their content. Therefore, photos are organized
by their filename and by the folder they are in. Each
folder will become an album on the receiver, and all
files in the folder will appear in the album.
Many digital cameras will organize your photos into
folders when you connect and unload them to your PC.
Each time you dock or connect, a new folder is created
using the current date and time, and all photos are
copied into that folder.
You can also create your own photo albums. For
instance, create a folder in the My Pictures directory
called My Birthday and copy all your birthday
photos into it. Your receiver will show the folder as a
photo album named My Birthday. To play a
slideshow of the album, highlight it and press the play
button. To view a list of the photos in the album,
highlight it and press the > (right arrow) button.
Similarly, you can give your photos meaningful names
by changing the filename. Most digital cameras will
number the photos sequentially. Rename the photo
IM001059.jpg to My Birthday Cake.jpg. The
photo will be named My Birthday Cake on your
receiver.
You can create as many album folders as you need.
Create a folder for the year, then create folders inside
for each of the months, and then folders in each month
for special occasions (birthday, vacation, holidays).

server printers
Photos will be printed 4x6” on the default printer of the
PC where they are stored. If you are running the server
software on more than one PC, make sure each PC has
a default printer. If your PC does not have a printer, no
photos can be printed.
The solution is the connection list. To view the list, click
on the server icon and select Connection List from
the menu. A window will be displayed, listing all
receivers that have ever connected to the server. To
hide server content from a particular receiver, uncheck
the box next to the receiver name.
For the best prints, use a photo printer with glossy 4x6”
photo paper and set it as the default printer.
For more information on printing photos, see “printing
photos” on page 34.
connection list
Each media server maintains a list of media receivers
on your network. By default, the server allows all
receivers to view the shared content on your computer.
This is the preferred setting for most users.
If you have multiple media receivers, advanced users
may wish to restrict the sharing of content. A receiver
in the living room may not need access to all the songs
on the computer upstairs, or a receiver located in a
bedroom may not require content from the office PC.

hp digital media receiver
If you wish to be prompted before allowing a receiver
access to shared content on the server PC, uncheck the
Allow Clients By Default box. Whenever you
attach a new receiver, a message box will appear on
the PC asking whether you wish to allow access.
Note: Checking the Allow Clients By Default box
will not change the status of receivers that have tried to
connect before.

In a wired network, you attach the media receiver to
your network with a network cable. One end of the
cable attaches to the media receiver, and the other end
attaches to your PC, a hub, or a router.
Note: See the “glossary” on page 49 for a list of
common network terms.
To determine the proper network setup of your media
receiver, you will need to know what kind of wired
network you have.
do you have a network?
If you have a single PC and you connect to the internet
with a phone line, chances are you do not have a
network. At a minimum, you will need a network
interface card (NIC) for your PC, or a USB-to-802.11b
dongle. You can then attach the media receiver to your
PC. See “wired with cross-over cable” on page 39.
If you have a single PC and you connect to the internet
with a cable or DSL modem, check your modem
connection. If the modem has only one network jack,
you still don’t have a network. You will need to

network.
another device on the network (a DHCP server or
router) assigns the address dynamically.
Note: You can create a network of PCs without access
to the internet. The internet is simply a common reason
to network PCs together.
To determine your address settings under Windows XP:
If you have multiple PCs and can share files between
them, or all of the PCs can access the internet through
a cable or DSL modem, then you do have a network.
However, you will need to determine how your server
PC (the PC running the hp media software) is assigned
a network address.
1. Click on start
2. Click All Programs, then Accessories, then
Command Prompt
3. At the prompt, type ipconfig /all
4. Look for the line Dhcp Enabled (you may have
to scroll back to see it)
To determine your address under Windows Me:
hubs, routers and switches
1. Click on start
When PCs are networked together, each PC is
attached to a central “box” with 4, 8, 16 or more
connections. This box is either a hub, a router, or a
switch. They all operate in a similar way, with one
important difference: a router will assign a network
address dynamically, while a hub or switch will not.
2. Click Run...
network address: static or dynamic?
A PC (or any network device) is either assigned a
network address manually (a static address), or
36
hp digital media receiver
3. At the prompt, type winipcfg and click Ok
4. Click the Details... button
5. Look for the line DHCP Server (if it has an
address, DHCP is enabled)
If DHCP is enabled, you have a DHCP server on your
network. See “wired with dynamic address” on
page 37.
Lexus.book Page 37 Monday, January 6, 2003 2:00 AM
If DHCP is not enabled, you will need to assign a static
address to your media receiver. Take note of the IP
Address and Subnet Mask listed by the ipconfig
utility, and see “wired with static address” on
page 38.
Note: If you cannot tell how your network addresses
are assigned, then try dynamic address (DHCP) first.
The media receiver will display an error message if it is
unable to dynamically configure its address.
In a wired home network, all computers are connected
to a network hub or router. This may also act as a
cable/DSL modem for sharing an internet connection.
wired with dynamic address
Connect the media receiver to your router, just as you
would one of your computers. In almost all cases, the
router works as a DHCP server (i.e., it assigns network
addresses).
Set the media receiver network settings to wired using
DHCP addressing. From the main home screen:

Once the media receiver restarts you will be returned
to the main home screen. If there are no error
messages, your network settings are properly
configured.
wired with static address
If a DHCP server is not available, you must assign the
media receiver a static address that is valid for your
network. The address must be very similar to the
address used by your PC, and it cannot be in use by
another network PC or device.
It is best to determine the addresses of all your PCs
before assigning one to your media receiver. Use the
method described in “network address: static or
dynamic?” on page 36 to find the static addresses in
use, and then pick an available address.
For example, you have three PCs on your network:
• PC1: 192.168.0.2
• PC2: 192.168.0.17
• PC3: 192.168.0.11
38
hp digital media receiver
All with a netmask of 255.255.255.0. For the media
receiver, pick an unused address like 192.168.0.20
and use the same netmask of 255.255.255.0. Write
the addresses down for future reference.
To configure the receiver for the static address:
1. Press options
2. Select Network Setup
3. Set Connection to Wired (Ethernet)
4. Select Address
5. Set Configuration to static
6. Set the IP Address to 192.168.0.20

If you don’t have a home network, it is still possible to
access your music and photos on a single PC. Connect
a network crossover cable (not included) from the
media receiver to the network connection on your PC.
If your PC does not have a network connection, you
will need to purchase a network card.
Choose a static address for your PC and one for your
media receiver. For example, you can use
192.168.0.1 for your PC, and 192.168.0.2 for your
media receiver. Use a netmask of 255.255.255.0 for

manufacturer, number of walls, and environment. If
possible, try setting up the media receiver in an area
40
hp digital media receiver
that is close to your PC or wireless access point. Once
everything is working properly, you can experiment
with placement and distance.
wireless infrastructure or ad hoc?
These are intimidating names for some very simple
concepts.
In Infrastructure mode, a wireless access point exists on
the network. The access point can be attached to a hub
or router, or the router can act as a wireless access
point as well. All PCs and wireless devices
communicate through the access point.
If you do not have a wireless access point or router,
you can use Ad Hoc mode. Ad Hoc allows
communication between a PC with a wireless card and
the media receiver. Communication occurs between
the devices directly without the need for an access
point.

wireless ad hoc
Most wireless networks communicate in infrastructure
mode. To configure the media receiver network settings
for wireless infrastructure and DHCP dynamic
addressing:
TV
1. Press options
2. Select Network Setup
3. Set Connection to Wireless (Infrastructure)
4. The receiver will scan for wireless local area
networks (WLan). Select WLan to choose your
wireless network if it is not already chosen.
5. Select Address
6. Set Configuration to DHCP
In Ad Hoc mode, an access point does not exist and
the media receiver communicates directly with
computers containing wireless network cards. It is
similar to a static network, without wires.
You will need to assign a static address to the media
receiver that is appropriate for your network. Use the

method described in “network address: static or
dynamic?” on page 36 to find the static addresses in
use, and then pick an available address.
Note: If you have other wireless PCs or devices,
determine all of the addresses before assigning one to
your receiver. Do not assign the same address to more
than one device.
For example, you can use 192.168.0.1 for your PC,
and 192.168.0.2 for your media receiver. Use a
netmask of 255.255.255.0 for both.
To configure the media receiver network settings for
wireless ad hoc mode and static addressing:
1. Press options
2. Select Network Setup
3. Set Connection to Wireless (Ad Hoc)

wireless encryption
For security reasons, a wireless network can encrypt
the network packets broadcast between devices. This
type of encryption is called Wired Equivalent Privacy,
or WEP.
There are two levels of WEP encryption: 64 and 128
bit. You may have heard the numbers 40 and 104 bit
used in conjunction with WEP encryption. These are
just two different names for the same encryption
method. Because there has been no official
standardization of these terms, wireless vendors may
use either name.
Whether you choose 64 or 128 bit is up to you. You
must balance higher security versus slower network
performance.
Lexus.book Page 43 Monday, January 6, 2003 2:00 AM
WEP is supported in both infrastructure and ad hoc
mode. For WEP to work properly, you must use the
same encryption level and keys on all your PCs, access
points, and media receivers. Check the WEP settings
on your access point or PC, then write down the
encryption level and WEP keys.
To configure the media receiver for WEP:
1. Press options
2. Select Network Setup
3. Highlight Wireless Encryption and press the
right arrow
4. Select Encryption and choose off,
64 (40) Bit, or 128 (104) Bit.
5. Select Key #1 and enter the WEP key. An
onscreen keyboard will appear for entering the
key. Entering the colon separator : is optional.
6. Enter Key #2, Key #3, and Key #4 if needed
7. Press the left arrow to exit the encryption options
Some network devices allow the use of a text
passphrase for the WEP key. After you enter the
passphrase on that device, view the encryption keys
that were generated. Write down the keys and enter
them into the Key fields on the media receiver.
Note: If you have trouble connecting to the media
server after enabling WEP, verify you have entered the
keys correctly. The keys can be long and input errors
are easy to make.

wireless signal strength
A lot of factors can affect the signal strength of the
wireless network. Antenna position, location of the
media receiver, distance, walls and environment all
affect the signal. For good reception, adjust the
antenna so it is pointing up.
Use the signal strength meter to adjust the position of
your media receiver or antenna. The higher the signal
strength, the better.
on this screen, the signal strength is 73%
