Error/Information
Menu
When text is too long to t on the screen, it is rst shown truncated, then, after a few seconds,
slowly scrolls so that you can read it all.
The Standby Screen shows the time, date and any active alarm times.
As you cycle through the play modes using Mode , the unit shows a Splash Screen for each
mode. After one second, the unit enters the selected mode and tries to start playing the last
station or track that was playing in that mode. If this is not possible, the unit tries to connect to the
selected source by scanning for stations, networks, or prompting for user input as appropriate.
Now Playing Screens show information about the audio source and track now playing,
where available.
Dialogue Screens are shown to allow the user to change settings. They vary in complexity from
simple Yes/No options up to the scrollable network password input screen. As with menus, the
selected item is shown with a white background.
Dialogue screens mark the current setting with an asterisk (*).
7
Error/Information Screens give specic messages for a few seconds, then change automatically
to another screen.
Menus
The unit has basically three types of menu. Use the Select control to step through and select
options. A scroll bar on the right of the screen shows if there are further options above or below
those visible. Each mode has a Mode Menu, with options specic to that mode. For example, the
FM mode menu has just two options: Scan setting and Audio setting.
In addition, each mode menu has two nal options: System settings > and Main menu >.
The ‘>’ indicates options leading to further menus.
The System settings Menu allows access to system settings and information such as network,
time, language and software update.
Menus with more options than will t on one screen have a scroll bar to the right.
The Main menu allows access to all modes plus sleep and timer functions.
Some menus, for example the System settings menu, have several submenus.
A menu map of the unit is shown in Chapter 12 of this manual.

Getting Started
3. Getting Started
3.1 Setup and Common Settings
To set up the unit:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Place the unit on a suitable shelf or table
Connect the power adaptor between the unit and the mains supply.
Attach the WiFi antenna
To receive broadcast radio (DAB and FM), attach the wire antenna.
The setup wizard will now start.
Setup Wizard
WELCOME
When the unit is started for the rst time, it runs through a setup wizard to congure settings for date/time
and network. Once this has nished, the system is ready to use in most modes.
Note: To change these settings later, select Menu > System settings >. To run the setup wizard again,
select Menu > System settings > Setup wizard.
Select Yes to start the setup wizard.
If you choose No, the next screen asks if you would like to run the wizard next time the unit is started.
The system then starts without conguring time/date and network settings and enters the Main Menu.
Note: If power is removed while the wizard is in progress, the wizard will run again next time when the
unit is started.
12/24 Hour Display
To change between 12 and 24 hour display, select Set 12/24 hour and then select your preference.
Time/Date
The time and date can be updated manually or automatically. With auto-update, the time and date are
automatically synchronized with external clocks. Auto-update is generally more accurate.
9
Auto-Update
Auto-update works with data sent over DAB, FM or the Internet. The clock is only updated when in a
corresponding mode, so it is best to select a mode you use regularly.
DAB and FM use time signals broadcast with radio transmissions.
Network uses a time signal sent from the Frontier Silicon Internet radio portal when in any
network- connected mode.
1. Select Update from DAB, Update from FM, Update from Network or No update.
2. If you are updating from the network, set your time zone.
3. If your country uses daylight saving, the automatically updated time from the network may be wrong by
one hour. When daylight savings are in effect (during the winter), turn on the Daylight savings option
to rectify this.
Note that if you are updating the time from DAB or FM, the Daylight savings option has no effect on the
clock’s time. The unit will auto-update from the selected source when time information is available.
Manual set
If you set No update, the wizard now prompts you to set the time and date manually. The date and time
are displayed as dd-mm-yyyy and hh:mm AM/PM with the rst value, dd, active (ashing).
Adjust each value with the Select control. As each value is set, the next value becomes active
and ashes.
Network
The unit is compatible with all common network protocols and encryption methods, including Wi-Fi
Protected Setup (WPS)
To connect the unit to your network, you need one of the following:
Ÿ A wired router and an Ethernet (RJ45 network) cable
Ÿ A Wi-Fi wireless router, together with password key if set
Select WLAN region/country > Wi-Fi network (SSID), and then select a network from the list.
To connect to a wired network, select [Wired], after ensuring that the Ethernet cable from the wired router
is connected to the Ethernet socket of the unit.
If the network is open (non-encrypted), the unit connects without any further ado; see following page.
10
Standard encrypted network
To enter the network’s key (password), use the Select control to move the cursor through the characters
and select. As each character is selected, the key is built up near the top of the display.
There are three options accessible by turning Select back before the rst characters (0123…)
– Backspace, OK and Cancel.
WPS encrypted network
WPS encrypted networks are identied by ‘[WPS]’ at the start of the network name, and have three
methods of connection. Select one and follow the prompts:
l
Push Button >
The unit prompts you to press the connect button on the router. It then scans for a ready Push Button
Connect network and connects.
l
Pin > (code number)
The unit generates an 8-digit code number which you enter into the wireless router, access point, or an
external registrar (e.g. advanced versions of Windows Vista).
l
Skip WPS >
Enter key as for a standard encrypted network, above.
For more information on setting up a WPS encrypted network, see your WPS router’s instructions.
11
Completion
The unit tries to connect to the selected network.
If connecting fails, the unit returns to a previous screen to try again.
If the network connection is lost, the unit automatically tries to reconnect.
Common settings
Equaliser
Several preset EQ modes are available; also a user-dened setting.
To adjust the EQ, select Menu > System settings > Equaliser.
You can then choose from a variety of preset modes or create your own, with custom bass, treble and
loudness settings.
12
Network
The unit remembers the last four wireless networks it has connected to, and automatically tries to connect
to whichever one of them it can nd.
You can see the list of registered networks through Menu > System settings > Network >
Network prole >. From here you can delete unwanted networks by turning and pressing Select then
conrming delete Yes.
There are also other options for viewing and manually altering network settings from Menu >
System settings > Network > (for example setting up a wired network). Users experienced with networking
may nd these options useful for diagnosing and xing network problems.
Language
The default language is English. To change, select Menu > System settings > Language > then select
your language. (Language selection: English / German / Italian / French / Spanish)
3.2 Internet Radio Portal Registration
The Frontier Silicon Internet radio portal website allows you to organize your favorites lists and also listen
to Internet radio on a computer.
13
To register your unit with the portal, switch to Internet radio mode, and then obtain your radio's unique
portal access code by selecting Menu > Station list > Help > Get access code >.
Write down the access code.
Note: Do not confuse the portal access code with the Radio ID (from Menu > System settings > Info.)
Visit the portal website at, www.wiradio-frontier.com
If this is your rst visit to the portal, register for a new account, entering the following information:
l
l
l
l
Access code,
Your e-mail address,
Password,
Radio model (Jupiter 6.2).
If you already have an account and wish to add an additional radio, log in to your account and select
My preferences > Add another Wi-Fi radio.
Once your radio is registered with the portal, you can immediately use the Internet radio favorites and
added stations features.
3.3 Setting up a Music Server
In order for the unit to play music les from a computer, the computer must be set up to share les
or media.
UPnP media sharing allows devices to play music from a shared media library, navigating through tag
menus such as Artist, Album or Genre. If you are running a suitable server system such as a PC with
Windows Media Player 10 or later (WMP), and your music library is well-tagged, then it is recommended
to use media sharing. Only the UPnP server needs to be set up.
14
3.4 Sharing and Streaming Media
Sharing Media with Windows Media Player
The most common UPnP server is Windows Media Player (10 or later). Alternatively, other UPnP
platforms and servers may be used. To set up WMP for media sharing, perform the following steps:
1. Ensure that the PC is connected to the network.
2. Ensure that the radio is powered on and connected to the same network.
3. In WMP, add to the media library the audio les and folders you want to share with the unit
(Library > Add to Library…).
4. In WMP, enable media sharing (Library > Media sharing…).
Make sure that the radio has access to the shared media by selecting it and clicking Allow. You can also
set a name for the shared media in Settings… Click OK to close the dialogue boxes.
The PC is now ready to stream the music to the radio. The WMP UPnP service runs in the background;
there is no need to start WMP explicitly.
15
Setting the Unit up for “Play To” Windows 7 Streaming Media Feature.
To set-up the unit to be controlled and to stream music via Windows Media Player 12 (Windows 7 only),
perform the following steps:
1. Ensure that the PC is connected to the network.
2. Ensure that the unit is powered on and connected to the same network.
Note: the unit must be in an Internet radio mode to be detected.
3. From the Windows 7 main screen, select Start > Devices and Printers.
4. Select the Add a device tab in the top left of the Devices and Printers window and follow the
instruction prompts given by the wizard.
In the Devices and Printers window a Jupiter 6 icon will appear and you are now ready to stream
your Windows media music les to the unit.
16
Internet Radio Mode
4. Internet Radio Mode
4.1 Last Listened, Presets, and Favorites
The unit can play thousands of radio stations and podcasts from around the world though a broadband
Internet connection.
When you select Internet radio mode, the unit contacts the Frontier Silicon Internet radio portal to get a
list of stations, organized into different categories like Country, Most popular and Genre. Once you select
a station, the unit connects directly to that station.
The portal also enables multiple lists of favorite stations that you can personalize, for example Andy's
stations, Joe's favorites, Talk shows. To use the favorites feature, register your radio with the portal
website. If you have several Frontier Silicon radios, you can register them all on the same account so that
each radio has access to your favorites lists. It is possible to add favorites either directly through the unit
or through any computer with a web browser.
To enter Internet Radio mode, either press Mode until the display shows Internet Radio or select Menu >
Main menu > Internet Radio.

Dynamic Range Compression
Some DAB broadcasts offer dynamic range compression (DRC). This feature allows radios to compress
the dynamic range of the output audio stream, so that the volume of quiet sounds is increased, and the
volume of loud sounds is reduced. This can be useful if you are listening to music with a high dynamic
range in a noisy environment (for example, classical music while cooking).
To change the DRC of the unit, select Menu > DRC, and then DRC high, DRC low or DRC off.
Note: The unit DRC setting does have any effect if DRC data is not included in the broadcast.
Station Order
You can choose the order of the DAB station list to be Alphanumeric, Ensemble or Valid. Ensemble lists
groups of stations that are broadcast together on the same ensemble, for example BBC or South Wales
local. Valid lists valid stations rst, alphanumerically, then off-air stations.
To change station order, select Menu > Station order > then Alphanumeric, Ensemble or Valid.

Factory Reset & Map of Modes and Menus
11. Factory Reset
A factory reset resets all user settings to default values, so time/date, network conguration and presets are

portal. Internet radio favorites therefore remain unless you re-register your radio with another account on
the portal website.
To perform a factory reset, select Menu > System settings > Factory reset Proceed > Yes.
