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 socket.
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.

to add a folder and scan for media files. Open a drive or a folder with music, photos, or
movies in it. (For example: the My Documents folder, if you have stored media files there.)
– You can always add more files and folders at a later time.
3
Adding files to the Media Manager.

Check the:
NETWORK NAME (SSID)
...............
and
ENCRYPTION KEY
...............
of your wireless network
1
Check your existing wireless network settings so you are able to enter them in STEP 7
of this procedure.
Find out the wireless network name (SSID) and the encryption key you used for securing
your wireless network.
Wireless Network Name (SSID):
Usually, you can find the wireless network name in the options menu of your Wireless
Network Adapter or Wireless Base Station.To check this, open the program that came
with your network adapter.
Encryption key:
The wireless encryption key is a 64 or 128 bit WEP code that secures your wireless
network communications.
– 64-bit: 5 characters ASCII, or 10 characters HEX, or
– 128 bit: 13 characters ASCII, or 26 characters HEX.
Note:The encryption key is case sensitive, meaning that ‘ABC’ is not the same as ‘aBc’. Always
input characters in the correct case to avoid problems.
Basically, you will have to try and remember what you set it to. If you cannot remember
the encryption key, you will either have to disable it completely for your entire wireless
network, or set a new one that you can remember.

available to the SL400i.

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).

mains outlet that provides electrical power.
No display on the TV screen.
TV is switched off.
Switch on your TV.
Wrong cable connections.
Check your cable connections, see the ‘Overview..’ on

be asked to connect the SL400i with an Ethernet
cable to your Internet gateway router or PC with
Internet access.
3. It will ask you for any additional settings it needs to
connect to the Internet. See the chapter about the
Options menu on page 35-39 for reference.
4. Once the emergency bootloader has been able to
connect to the Internet and has downloaded a valid
software version, it will display ‘Restarting system...’.
The SL400i should be working again.
If not, check your settings by pressing the MENU
button.
