Integration of MC W770 into an existing (home) network
You can also install the MC W770 in any other, perhaps existing network, which is compliant to
the Wi-Fi or IEEE802.11b,g rules. Please use this kind of installation only if you are
experienced in handling wireless networks and experienced in setting up these
networks! In general there are 2 types of network modes: ad-hoc mode (used for direct
connections to PC’s) and infrastructure mode (used when you have accesspoint(s) in your
network). Both modes are supported.
Before starting this installation process:
– There should be a PC in the network having the dedicated Philips Media Manager Software
installed.Therefore install the Philips Media Manager software from the installation CD only.
– The wireless USB adapter has to be already installed and connected on the PC you use for
installation.
– You should have the
wireless settings for
your network like
SSID and WEP keys
available.

Important notes for users in the U.K.
Mains plug
This apparatus is fitted with an approved 13 Amp plug.To
change a fuse in this type of plug proceed as follows:
1
Remove fuse cover and fuse.
2
Fix new fuse which should be a BS1362 5 Amp, A.S.T.A. or BSI
approved type.
3
Refit the fuse cover.
If the fitted plug is not suitable for your socket outlets, it should be
cut off and an appropriate plug fitted in its place.
If the mains plug contains a fuse, this should have a value of 5
Amp. If a plug without a fuse is used, the fuse at the distribution
board should not be greater than 5 Amp.
Note:The severed plug must be disposed of to avoid a possible
shock hazard should it be inserted into a 13 Amp socket elsewhere.
How to connect a plug
The wires in the mains lead are coloured with the following
code: blue = neutral (N), brown = live (L).
0
As these colours may not correspond with the colour markings
identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
– Connect the blue wire to the terminal marked N or coloured black.
– Connect the brown wire to the terminal marked L or coloured red.
– Do not connect either wire to the earth terminal in the
plug, marked E (or e) or coloured green (or green and
yellow).
Before replacing the plug cover, make certain that the cord grip
is clamped over the sheath of the lead - not simply over the
two wires.

All redundant packing material has been
omitted.We have done our utmost to
make the packaging easily separable into
three mono materials: cardboard (box),
polystyrene foam (buffer) and polyethylene
(bags, protective foam sheet).
To take a disc out of
its box easily, press the
centre spindle while lifting
it. After use, always take
the disc out of the set
and store it in the disc case.
Your set consists of materials which can be
recycled if disassembled by a specialised
company. Please observe the local
regulations regarding the disposal of packing
materials, exhausted batteries and old
equipment.
Never attach a sticker to a disc. If you want
to provide a disc with an inscription use a
soft felt-tipped pen and write only on the
printed side.
Maintenance
Clean the set with a
soft, slightly dampened,
lint-free cloth. Do not
use any cleaning agents
as they may have a
corrosive effect.
Do not expose the set,
batteries or discs to
humidity, rain, sand or
excessive heat (caused by
heating equipment or
direct sunlight).
Always keep the trays of
your set closed to protect the lens from
dust. If the set fails to read discs correctly
use a commonly available cleaning-CD to
clean the lens before submitting the set to
repair. Other cleaning methods may destroy
the lens.
The lens may cloud over when the set is
moved from cold to warm surroundings.
Playing a disc is not possible then. Leave the
set in a warm environment until the
moisture evaporates.
To clean a disc, wipe it
in a straight line from the
centre towards the edge
using a soft, lint-free cloth.
Any cleaning agents may
damage the disc!
Setup
Place the set on a flat, hard and stable
surface.
Do not position the set on top of other
equipment that might heat it up (e.g.
receiver or amplifier).
Place the apparatus in a
1
location with adequate
4 in0 cm
che
s
ventilation to prevent
internal heat build up.
5 cm
Allow at least 10 cm
2 inches
(4 inches) clearance
from the rear and the
top of the unit and 5 cm (2 inches)
from each side.
10 cm
4 inches
5 cm
2 inches
The apparatus shall not be exposed to
dripping or splashing.
Do not place any sources of danger on the
apparatus (e.g. liquid filled objects, lighted
candles).
Do not block any ventilation openings.

Important
Do not plug in the wireless USB adapter into a USB port
of your computer, but start with the software installation
first from the CD-ROM.After the necessary driver software
has been installed you will be asked by the installation
software to plug in the wireless USB adapter.This order of
installation will ensure the proper function of your wireless
USB adapter.
Wireless USB adapter
Question
34
Answer
I have plugged in the wireless
USB adapter and completed
the installation in Windows
without installing the software
from the bypacked CD-ROM first.
What should I do?
In order that you can install the correct driver
software for the wireless USB adapter,
please do the following:
1 Open Windows Start Menu/Settings/
Control Panel/System/Hardware/
Device Manager
2 Select Other Devices and delete the
USB WLAN device.
3 Unplug the wireless USB adapter.
4 Start the installation from the CD-ROM
with unplugged wireless USB adapter!
5 You will be asked during the installation to
plug in the adapter again.
I have followed the instructions for
use and the instructions shown on
the installation software exactly
but cannot successfully install.
Possibly you have a problem with the
quality of the wireless link.We propose using
the extension cable which is delivered with
the MC W770 Philips audio system and
placing the wireless USB adapter as close as
possible to the front side of the MC W770.
Start the installation again.
Since I have changed the USB port
for the wireless USB adapter I
have longer connection times from
my MC W770 audio system to the
PC.
Your installation was optimised for the
first USB port used. In order to decrease
connection time for the new USB port,
you have to configure the new USB port
for your PC link network. Select from the
CD-ROM setup the Network Utilities
and then the Install different USB port
menu. Follow the instructions of the setup
programme. For more information please refer
to the IFU chapter “Change of USB port using

information of your MP3 files with the
Philips Media Manager software, so you can
group your songs accordingly.To edit ID3
information select the track(s) you’d like to
edit, right click and select the ‘Edit Media
Information...’ from the popup menu.
How can I get a newer version
of the Philips Media Manager?
You can download the latest version of the
Philips Media Manager from
http://www.my.philips.com

Connection problems and problems with link quality
Question
Answer
38
I have successfully installed my
MC W770, the wireless USB
adapter and the software, and it
worked nicely until recently. Now I
have placed the MC W770 in a
different room, and it is not able to
connect anymore.The display
shows NO CONNECTION.What can
I do?
Please check if your PC is still running and if the
wireless USB adapter is installed correctly.
The MC W770 PC link uses radio waves
to link between the PC and audio device.
The output power is limited by legal
regulations, and therefore also the distance
in which the PC link works is limited. Usually
the PC link function works inside a typical
single family house without problems. But the
radio-waves are dampened especially by walls,
ceilings and also by metal in your furniture.
Some golden rules to improve your link
quality:The PC and the MC W770 should not
be placed more than one floor and two walls
from each other. (This depends strongly on the
wall material).The wireless USB adapter
should be placed more than 20 cm (8 inches)
away from metal plates, e.g. it should not be
placed on top of your PC or your monitor,
or even too close to them. Use the extension
cable to get some distance from your PC.Try
different positions for the wireless USB
adapter, some centimetres (inches) can already
help! Try the same with your MC W770.
My PC Link has already worked
nicely, but since recently this is
no longer the case.
It is possible that in your area or close
neighbourhood a new network has been
installed. Use the installation CD to switch
to another channel.
How can the transmission
channel be changed?
There is an easy way to change the network
transmission channel, by using the Change
transmission channel network utility
from the installation CD-ROM. For more
information please refer to the IFU chapter
“Change of the wireless channel”,
