Before you can use this product
Before you can use your internet radio, you must have the following:
A broadband Internet connection (not required for DAB, FM or Music
Player functions).
GB
A wireless access point (WiFi) or a wired Ethernet connection connected
to your broadband Internet Service Provider, preferably via a router.
In many cases the broadband modem, router and wireless access
point will be a single combined unit supplied by your Internet Service
Provider or bought from a computer store.
If your wireless network is configured to use Wired Equivalent Privacy
(WEP) or WiFi Protected Access (WPA/WPA2) data encryption then you
either need to know the WEP, WPA or WPA2 key used for encryption so
you can get the internet radio to communicate with the network, or your
router needs to offer WiFi Protected Setup (WPS).
If connecting using WiFi, the internet radio will typically work within a 10-20
metre radio from your wireless access point. The actual range achieved will
depend upon the building type, other nearby wireless network, and possible
interference sources. DAB and FM radio functions can operate wherever
the internet radio is able to receive a suitable broadcast signal.
IMPORTANT:
Before you continue, make sure that your wireless access point or router
is powered up and working with your broadband Internet service (use your
computer to verify this). To get this part of the system working you must
read the instructions supplied with the wireless access point or router.

Using the touch panel
Network remote control options
The DDR-63i has a stylish touch panel instead of conventional buttons.
Network Pin setup (Pin number)
Your radio has the option of being controlled by an application installed
on an Apple iPhone, iPod touch or iPod. The Pin number facility allows
you to ensure that your radio can only be controlled by your own Apple
device rather than someone else’s.
To operate the buttons simply touch the button area with the tip of a
finger for about half a second. The clock set and system menu functions
marked with a dot ( ) are accessed by means of a long touch (2-3
seconds) on the appropriate button until the display on the radio shows
that the command has been accepted.
You may find at first that the radio does not always detect that you have
touched a button. If so, try touching with a little more pressure, or for
slightly longer. You will soon find the optimum touch needed to control
your radio. The panel may be cleaned using a dry cloth. Do not use
abrasives, cleaning fluids or solvents.
Remote control functions
Most of the functions of the DDR-63i radio can be controlled using
either the touch panel or the remote control. However, there are a few
functions which are only accessible using the remote control.
These are:
Radio station presets
CD track access by numbers
Audio mute
DAB/FM auto-tune
CD/iPod random function
As with the front panel, some operations require a longer operation of
the button (explained in the relevant sections). In this case simply keep
your finger held on the remote controlbutton for 2-3 seconds until the
display on the radio shows that the command has been accepted.
Details of how this feature can be used with your iPhone or iPod touch
are explained in the separate section in this manual called ‘Using
iSangean app for controlling your DDR-63i internet radio’.
Keep network connected
By default, your radio will shut down its WiFi connection when it is in
standby. This minimizes power consumption but it does mean that you
will need to switch that radio on manually in order to use the remote
control software.
If you need to be able to remotely control the radio even when it has
been put into standby, then you can choose to keep the network
connected by using the ‘Keep connected’ option in the network setting
menu. In the standby mode display either the WiFi signal indicator
is shown with or without a cross through it according to the chosen
network settings.
Navigation controls
This page describes the basic means of controlling your DDR-63i internet radio. Instructions for
each operating mode are given in the later section of this book.
1. Pressing the Standby button brings your radio out of Standby mode. Pressing Standby while
the radio is in use will cause it to return to the Standby mode with the clock display.
GB
2. Pressing the Radio button gives you access to each of the operating modes in turn: Internet
Radio, DAB+ radio, FM radio and Auxiliary Input.
3. Pressing the Media button gives you access to each of the operating modes in turn: CD, USB
memory device, SD cards, iPod and Music player.
4. Pressing and holding the Info/Menu button will access the menu system. The info button also
allows the display of information relating to the radio station or music file being played.
5. Many operations require the user to make a selection from the menu. Highlight the menu item
using the Tuning Up or Tuning Down buttons on the touch panel (alternatively, the Folder Up
or Folder Down buttons on the remote control handset). Press the Select button to select that
item. If there are more than five items in a menu, then the display will automatically scroll up or
down so that the additional items become visible. A sliding bar on the right will give an indication
showing the current portion of the menu that is displayed. If there are many items in a menu,
then the radio allows the menu to “wrap around” in either direction. This can make it easier to
reach items at the end of a long menu, such as a list of countries or Internet radio stations.
6. If an error is made when navigating the menus, it is generally possible to go back to a higher
level menu by pressing the Back button.
Although controls on the Internet radio are shown, all functions are also available using the
remote control.
10
Configuration
Connecting your radio to your computer network
1. Place your radio on a flat surface and plug the mains lead into the mains socket located on the
back of your radio ensuring that the plug is pushed fully into the socket.
2. If you wish to use a wired network connection, plug the Ethernet cable into the socket at the
back of the radio.
3. Plug the other end of the mains lead into the wall socket and switch on the wall socket.
IMPORTANT:
The mains plug is used as the means of connecting the radio to the mains supply. The mains
socket used for the radio must remain accessible during normal use. In order to disconnect
the radio from the mains completely, the mains plug should be removed from the mains socket
outlet completely.
4. When you apply power, the display on the radio will light up and say: ‘WELCOME’ and
‘STARTING’ with a progress indicator. The first time that you use your radio (or after Factory
Reset) the display will show “Setup wizard” and “YES” will be highlighted on the screen. Press
the Select button to start the setup wizard. The screen will ask if you wish to run the setup
wizard again at the next start up. This will lead to the main menu.
5. Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the touch panel (Alternatively, the Folder Up or Down
buttons on the remote control handset) to highlight the desired clock format (either 12 Or 24
hour) then press the Select button to enter your selection. A menu allowing you to specify
the auto update option for the clock will appear on the display. The default of ‘Update from
Network’ will be the best option for most users.
11
6. Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the touch panel (Alternatively, the Folder Up or
Down buttons on the remote control handset) to choose an auto-update option for the clock.
This can be updated from DAB or FM radio, from the Network, or not updated. The default is
to auto update from the network. If you choose any other option, go to step 9. Otherwise you
will first need to select the correct time zone and daylight savings setting, see steps 7 and 8.
If you choose “No update” you will need to set the clock manually later (see the section of
‘Manually setting the clock’). Press the Select button to confirm your choice.
GB
7. Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the touch panel (Folder Up or Down buttons on the
remote control handset) to highlight the time zone which is applicable to your location. Press
the Select button to enter the setting.
8. You will then need to set the Daylight Savings option according to your location (Daylight
Savings is also known as Summer/Winter time). Press the Folder Up or Down buttons on the
remote control handset to highlight “YES” to turn on daylight savings if required or ‘NO’ if you
do not wish to use daylight savings then press the Select button to confirm the setting.
9. The display will then show a list of WiFi regional options for the network set up. Press the
TuningUp or Down buttons on the touch panel (Alternatively, the Folder Up or Down buttons
on the remote control handset) to highlight the required region and then press the Select
button to select it. Do this even if planning to use the wired Ethernet connection. Your radio
will then scan for available WiFi networks. If using WiFi we recommend that the WiFi antenna
is positioned vertically.
10. The radio will enter the Network Settings Wizard and will display ‘Scanning…’. After a short
while the display will show a list of the available WiFi networks. If you are intending to use the
WiFi connection, go to step 11.
To use the Ethernet connection to your router (with automatic configuration). Press the Folder
Up or Down buttons on the remote control handset to point to the “[Wired]’ menu item. Press
the Select button and the radio will attempt to connect.
12
If your network allows automatic configuration (which is normal) the radio will acquire a network
address. The screen should say ‘Connecting…’, and then ‘Setup wizard completed’. Press the
Select button to exit the setup wizard and show the main menu.
There are two indicator lights incorporated into the connector. If you have problems with your
wired connection, they may help you to identify the possible cause of the problem.
Yellow ON = Link established; OFF = no connection
Yellow Flashing = Data transfer
Green ON = 100 Mbits/sec link; OFF = 10 Mbits/sec ilnk
If your network does not support automatic configuration or if you wish to set it up manually then
you should select ‘[Manual config]’ instead of selecting ‘[Wired]’ in the Network Wizard.
11. If you plan to use a WiFi connection, you will first need to identify your network in the list of
network names presented by the Network Wizard. If no networks are found then you may
have to get your wireless router working (please see the instructions supplied with it) or
you may be too far from the router. When the radio finds your wireless network, it displays
the Network Name (SSID) for the wireless access point on the screen. This is a name that
is allocated to the access point in your router by the person who set up the network – for
example: ‘Jones family’ or ‘Paul’s network’. If the router supports WiFi Proteced Setup, then
‘[WPS]’ will be shown in front of the SSID. It is possible, and in some locations highly likely,
that your radio will find more than one wireless network, in which case you should choose
which one you need to connect to.
12. Press the Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control handset (alternatively, Tuning Up
or Down buttons on the touch panel) to see the SSID for each wireless network that has been
found. If your network is shown proceed to step 14 on the next page. If it is not shown then
proceed to step 13. If you make a mistake at any point, use the Back button to go back to the
previous screen.
13
13. If your network is not found, it may be because the router is configured not to broadcast the
SSID. You should then use the Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control handset and
Select buttons to highlight and select the ‘[Manual config]’ option in order to enter the network
details manually. This is described in ‘Manual Network Configuration”. If your network name
is being broad cast, and it was not found, then try re-scanning press the Back button), and if
necessary try moving your radio to a location closer to your access point / router.
GB
14. When the SSID for the wireless network you wish to connect to is highlighted on the
screen, press the Select button. If WiFi Pretected Setup (WPS) was indicated, you will
see an additional menu at this point, otherwise proceed to step 15. Choose one of the
WPS menu options as required for your router (WPS may be via push button, or using an
identificationnumber). ‘Push Button’ – the display prompts you to press the WPS button on
your routerand then the Select button on the radio. The two devices should then connect with
the encryption key sent automatically to the radio. ‘PIN’ – the display shows an identification
number which you must enter into your router using a web browser (refer to your router’s user
documentation). You should then press the Select button on the radio. ‘Skip WPS’ – if you
wish to enter the encryptionkey yourself (or if it was previously Entered). If you choose Push
Button or PIN the screen will then show ‘Connecting…’ and then ‘Setup wizard completed’.
Press the Select button to exit setup wizard.
15. If your network is configured without an encryption key, the screen should say ‘Connecting…’,
and then ‘Setup wizard completed’. Press the Select button to exit the setup wizard and show
the main menu. If this is the case then you have successfully connected your radio to your
network.
16. If the screen displays ‘Key’, it is because the network is using one of the encryption systems:
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or WiFi Protected Access (WPA). You will need to enter the
correct WEP or WPA key into the radio to allow it to communicate with your wireless network.
If you do not have the WEP or WPA key, then you should obtain it from the person who set up
your network. Some wireless routers may come with an encryption key already set up by the
supplier, in which case you should refer to the documentation provided with it. WPA is used
here to also include WPA2.
14
WEP keys are 10 or 26 characters long (using 0 – 9, and A – F). Some wireless Routers can also
use pass-phrases for WEP but these are not supported. WPA keys are usually set up using a
pass-phrase of between 8 and 63 characters. Your radio accepts pass-phrases for WPA keys.
17. To enter the WEP or WPA key, characters are selected and entered using the Menu Up or
Down, Left or Right (on the remote control) and Select buttons. The highlight scrolls through
the available characters as well as the three controls on the right. The character currently
highlighted will be entered when you press the Select button. Do this as needed until the
complete key has been entered. Remember, WEP keys only use the numbers 0-9 and
letters A-F. WPA keys are sensitive to upper and lower case characters. You must enter the
key exactly or the radio will not connect to the network. The three controls on the right-hand
side of the screen have special functions. You can quickly access these by pressing the Info
button and then use the Up or Down and Select buttons as needed:
select ‘
’ to erase a character just entered (long press to clear)
select ‘
’ when the complete key has been entered
select ‘
’ to cancel an re-run the Network Wizard
If a WEP or WPA key has previously been entered for the selected SSID then the display will
show ‘Key: [Set]’. If you have previously entered a different key, you must clear this by
selecting the ‘
’ symbol. This will remove the ‘[Set]’ indication. After the final character
of the WEP or WPA key has been entered, highlight the ‘
’ symbol and press the Select
button. Then screen will show ‘Connecting…’ and then ‘Setup wizard completed’. Press
the Select button to the exit setup wizard. The radio should now be able to connect to the
network.
15
18. Once you have connected your radio to the network (and therefore also to the Internet) it will
display the main menu. Press the Standby button to put the radio in Standby mode. It should
then display the time as obtained from the Internet. If the time display is not correct for any
reason, it can easily be adjusted later, see ‘Manually setting the clock’. If you have followed
the steps on the preceding pages successfully, your radio will have connected to your router,
and then made a connection to the Internet and set its clock. If this is the case, then you can
try listening to radio stations via the Internet.
Changing the network connection
In the sections above, you chose how your radio would be connected to your network, either
using a WiFi connection or using a wired Ethernet cable. From time to time, you may find that you
need to connect to different computer networks. The Internet setup menu allows you to change
your radio’s network settings, scan for an alternative wireless network, or to manually configure
the network parameters. The steps outlined below describe how you can do this – see also the
section ‘Network Profiles’.
GB
Configuring the radio to use an alternative WiFi connection
1. From the Network settings menu select ‘Network wizard’. This will present you with details of
any WiFi networks that are found. Scroll down the list using the Folder Up or Down buttons on
the remote control panel to the desired network name. Press the Select button to select this
network. The radio will then use its WiFi system to communicate with the network. Depending
on the settings for the new network you may need to enter an encryption key. By default the
radio will then acquire an IP address and other network settings from your router using DHCP.
Configuring the radio to use the wired Ethernet connection
2. Connect your radio to your router using an Ethernet cable plugged into the socket (marked
LAN) at the back of the unit. From the Network settings menu select ‘Network Wizard’. This
will preset you the details of any WiFi networks that are found. Scroll down the list to the
‘[Wired]’ option using the Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control handset. Press the
Select button to select this.
The radio will then use its Ethernet connection to communicate with the network. By default
the unit will then acquire an IP address and other network settings from your router using
DHCP.
16
Manual network configuration
If you do not wish to use DHCP for automatic configuration, or if your network is configured with a
hidden SSID, then you will need to enter some network settings manually. (Note – a hidden SSID
may prevent casual observers from detecting your network, but is not recommended as a means
of network security.)
1. From the radio Network settings menu, select ‘Manual settings’. You must then choose
whether to connect using ‘Wired’ or ‘Wireless’ connections. If you choose ‘Wireless’ there
are as many as nine settings screens, shown by the ‘1 of 9’ progress marker in the top right
corner of the display. If you choose ‘Wired’ there are five screens and the progress marker will
reflect this, although the steps to set up the network parameters are basically the same.
2. The next menu asks whether you wish to use DHCP to configure your network parameters (IP
address, subnet mask, gateway address, etc). Unless you are familiar with networking and
related terminology, we recommend that you allow the use of DHCP. Choose ‘DHCP enable’
unless you need to specify the network details manually. If you have chosen ‘Wired’ and then
‘DHCP enable’, your radio should now establish a connection to the router using the Ethernet
cable. Please skip to setp11. If you chose ‘Wireless’ and ‘DHCP enable’, please skip to step
6 in order to set up the wireless connection details. If you chose ‘DHCP disable’ for either
connection method, the next step is to set up the IP address.
3. The manually specified IP address should be chosen to be compatible with the settings in your
router and must be a unique address on your network. If you are using DHCP for some devices
and static (manually configured) IP addresses for others, the IP address used should fall outside
the range that the router may allocate using DHCP. Typically, the first three groups of digits
will be the same for all devices on your network. To enter the IP address, press the Folder Up
or Down buttons to set the value for each group of digits and then press the Select button or
the Left or Right buttons on the remote control to enter the value and to move on to the next
group. When the IP address has been entered, the subnet mask should be entered. The subnet
mask defines which parts of the IP address are common across your network. For most small
networks the subnet mask will be 255.255.255.0 and this is entered in the same way.
4. The Gateway address is normally the IP address of the router through which the radio
connects to the internet and is entered in the same way as the previous addresses.
17
5. In most installations the DNS settings (DNS = Domain Name Server) will be set to the same
IP address as your router. In this case the secondary DNS may be left at zero. To enter the
DNS address, press the Folder Up or Down buttons on the remote control to set the value
for each group of digits and then press the Select button or the Left or Right buttons (on
the remote control) to enter the value and to move on to the next group. Repeat this until all
eight groups of digits have been entered. If you previously specified ‘Wired’ and then ‘DHCP
disable’, your radio should now connect to the router using the Ethernet cable (in which case
skip to step 11).
GB
6. If you specified ‘Wireless’, the next step is to set up the WiFi connection, starting with the
name of the wireless network (SSID) followed by the encryption options and password.
To enterthe SSID, characters are selected and entered using the Folder Up or Down, Left
or Right on the remote control and Select buttons. The radio scrolls through the available
characters as well as the three controls on the right. The character currently highlighted will be
entered when you press theSelect button.
Do this as needed until the complete network name has been entered. The SSID setting is
sensitive to upper and lower case characters and symbols. You must enter it exactly as set up
in your router. The three controls on the right-hand side of the screen have special functions.
You can quickly access these by pressing the Info button and then use the Folder Up or Down
and Select buttons on the remote control as needed:
select ‘
’ to erase a character just entered (long press to clear); Info again to continue
select ‘
’ when the complete SSID has been entered
select ‘
’ to cancel and go back to the DNS settings screen
7. Having entered the SSID, you must enter details of the encryption system used on your
wireless network. This should be the same as specified in your router settings. If your network
does not use encryption, then select the ‘Open’ option. Your radio should then connect to the
network, so skip to step 11. If your network uses WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) select the
‘Pre-Shared Key’ option then go to step 8. The remaining options are for WPA or WPA2 (WiFi
Protected Access) – see step 9.
8. If you chose ‘Pre-Shared Key’ in step 7, you should then choose the WEP option. The
key should be entered using only the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F. The key will be 10
characters long for 64-bit encryption and 26 characters long for 128-bit encryption. The radio
willaccept lower-case letters a-f as equivalent to upper-case A-F. Spaces or special symbols
are not permitted in WEP keys.
18
The three controls on the right-hand side of the screen have special functions. You can
quickly access these by pressing the Info button and then use the MenuUp or Down and
Select buttons as needed:
select ‘
’ to erase a character just entered (long press to clear); Info again to continue
select ‘
’ when the complete encryption key has been entered
select ‘
’ to cancel and go back to the SSID settings screen
Once the key is entered the radio should connect to your network. Please skip to step 11.
9.
WPA and WPA2 are similar, although WPA2 offers a higher level of security. Whichever
you selected in step 7, you then have to specify the variant used. They are TKIP (Temporal
Key Integrity Protocol) and AES (Advanced Encryption Standard). As previously, the setting
should match that used by your router. Some routers allow both to be specified, and the
router will use whichever variant is supported by the connected device. AES is regarded as
the more secure option if it is available.
10. The radio will then require you to enter the encryption key. This must be a string of between 8
and 63 characters and must be identical to the key which has been entered into your router.
Note – the encryption key is sensitive to the use of upper and lower case letters and
symbols. Take care to enter the key exactly, or the radio will not be able to connect to your
router. The three controls on the right-hand side of the screen have special functions. You
can quickly access these by pressing the Info button and then use the Folder Up or Down
and Select buttons as needed:
select ‘
’ to erase a character just entered (long press to clear); Info again to continue
select ‘
’ when the complete encryption key has been entered
select ‘
’ to cancel and go back to the TKIP / AES options screen
Once the key is entered the radio should connect to the network.
19
11. While the radio is trying to connect to the network, it will display ‘Processing…’ when
checking the encryption key (if using the WiFi connection) and then ‘Connecting…’. If the
connection is made successfully, the radio will return to the Network settings menu. If the
unit cannot connect, then it will display a ‘Failed to connect’ message and will return to the
SSID entry screen (step 6).Once connected, the network settings are stored in the radio. The
settings are retained whenthe radio is disconnected from the mains. You may now use the
Back and Radio or Media buttons to access the functions of your radio.
Internet Radio
Internet Radio – the basics
Before you can use your radio to listen to broadcasts via the Internet, it
is necessary to have connected it to your computer network using either
the wireless (WiFi) connection or the wired Ethernet connection located
on the back of the unit.
GB
There are literally many thousands of radio broadcasts available via
the internet as well ‘Podcasts’. Your radio provides several ways of
searching for broadcasts in order to make finding and choosing them
easier. Once you have found radio stations which you like, you may
either store them as presets within the radio, or add them to a list of
your favorite stations which your radio can access. The number of
presets is limited (there are ten presets on the radio), but you can store
as many favorites as you like.
You may search for an internet radio station by Location. If you know the
name of the station and the country from which a station is broadcast
this may be the easiest method to find a station. It is also a great way to
experience radio from other parts of the world. You may also search for
an internet radio station by Genre.
If you prefer a particular type of music, Blues for example, you may
search for a radio station that broadcasts that type of music, and you
can choose from a list of Blues radio stations regardless of location, or
taking location into account.
If you know part of the name of an internet radio station, you can enter
it into the radio and it will search for stations that match that name. This
can be helpful if you are unsure of the location or genre of a particular
station.
The DDR-63i radio connects to a radio station database which serves
many users in many countries. This means that there is a very wide
range of program content available. You can also search for stations
which have been recently added to those available (new stations) or
you can search for the most popular.

countries shown you can scroll through the list continually in either direction. For example, if
the chosen continent was Europe, then to find the United Kingdom scroll up from the top of
the list to the bottom by pressing the Tuning Up button. Press the Select button to choose the
desired country.
8. You will typically find that you then have the option to select either ‘All Stations’ or one of
a number of categories. The lists are always sorted alphabetically, and long lists will wrap

GB
If the station has on-demand content, that is, it gives the option of listening to programs which
have already been broadcast or to Podcasts, there will be an additional screen showing the
radio station name as well as a ‘Podcasts’ option. These are selected using additional menus,
determined by the radio station and the content. There may simply be a list of programs,
or there may also be options to choose from broadcasts on particular dates or days of the
week. The examples shown here are typical. Podcasts and Listen Again content can also be
accessed separately from the main Internet Radio menu.
If your radio cannot connect to a radio station
Note:
If your radio is unable to connect to an internet radio station it will generally either display ‘Network
Error’ or ‘Stopped’. This can be for many reasons, but typically Will be due to one of the following:
The radio station may not be broadcasting at the preset time.
The radio station may not be able to accommodate any more connections from internet listeners.
The broadcaster may limit listening to specific countries or regions.
There may be network congestion (either locally or at a distance) which is affecting the reliability
of the connection.
If your radio can connect, but the audio is not continuous and the radio keeps having to
reconnect, this may be due to the radio station only having limited connection capacity.

Some radio stations allow you to listen to programs that have already been broadcast. The BBC’s
Listen Again service is an example of this. In addition, radio broadcasters and individuals may
make programs which are intended normally to be downloaded into a computer or copied onto
a portable media player. These are commonly known as Podcasts. On your radio, both Listen
Again programs and Podcasts are grouped together as Podcasts, and the same menu is used
to access and listen to both types of programming. Listen Again programs are also accessible
viathe Stations menu.

Customizing your radio
In addition to storing your favourite radio stations in the radio presets, your radio allows you to
create customised lists of stations which can appear in two special menus on the radio called
'My Favourites' and 'My Added Stations'. Your radio uses a database which is accessed via the
Internet in order to find out which radio stations are available and how it should connect to them.
You are able to add your personal selections to this database. These will only be accessible
by you using your PC or your radio. You can choose the stations which will appear in the 'My
Favourites' menu from the large selection already listed. Additionally, if you find a radio station
that is not listed then you may also add the Internet address (URL) of the station's audio stream
to your selection.
It will then appear on your radio via the 'My Added Stations' menu item.

Music player
Use with Windows, Apple Mac and Linux
The Music Player allows you to play audio fi les which are stored on
computer in your network.
In order to play files from a computer on your network, your radio must
connect to a file server application which uses the Universal Plug and
Play (UPnP) protocol.
If your computer uses Windows 7, Vista or XP, then it is likely that your
computer already has a UPnP server application available. Windows
Media Player (versions 11 and 12) has this capability, and it is able to
make your files available to your radio. It also allows you to select files
by Album, Artist, and so on.
Windows Media Player 12 can serve MP3, WMA, AAC and WAV files to
your radio. Windows Media Player 11 is only able to serve MP3 and
WMA files to your radio. If you have your radio files stored in the FLAC
format, or if you are an Apple Mac or Linux user, there are other UPnP
server applications which you may use with your radio.
The Music Player on the radio can playback audio files in MP3,
WMA, AAC, FLAC and WAV formats. WMA Lossless files can also be
played when using Windows Media Player as it will convert these to
a compatible format before streaming them to the radio. Note that the
playback of files encoded using WMA Voice, WMA 10 Professional, and
for files which have DRM protection are not supported.
When using a UPnP server, the search and selection criteria are
determined by the server software, but typically include Artist, Album
and Genre. Many server applications also allow you to access your files
according to the folders within which they are stored as well as other
criteria.
Windows Media Player is less flexible than some other UPnP servers,
but is generally easier to set up. It is supplied as a standard component
of windows 7, Vista or XP.
Many UPnP server applications are also capable of sharing pictures
and video files to other network connected devices. if this is the case (as
it is with Windows Media Player 11 and 12) you may see the option of
choosing between ‘Music’, ‘Video’ and ‘Pictures’ on the Music Player’s
Menu. You should only select the ‘Music’ option. Content offered via the
alternative options will not be playable on your radio.
Some third part server application allow customization of the search
criteria and indexing methods. This can useful of you have a very large
collection of store music files.
Here is a short selection of alternative UPnP server applications,
although many other are available.
Twonky Media Server (Windows, Apple Mac, Linux)
TVersity (Windows)
Elgato EyeConnect (for Apple Mac OS X)
Media Tomb (Linux, MAC OS X)
Please refer to the documentation for your chosen server application for
full details of its configuration and usage.
34
GB
Accessing your audio files via a UPnP server
If your computer is running Windows 7, then Windows Media Player version 12 includes a UPnP
server which will make your files available to your radio.
If you have Windows Vista or XP (Please refer to the section of ‘Accessing your audio files via
a UPnP server using Windows Vista and XP’). There are other UPnP server solutions available
for non-Windows users and for Windows users who may wish to use an alternative (see the
preceding section).
It is beyond the scope of this instruction book to cover all possible options for UPnP. We explain
the use of Microsoft's Windows Media Player here since that will be the first choice for the
majority of users.
Set up UPnP access with Windows Media Player 12
1. Windows Media Player 12 (referred to here as WMP 12) can create a library from all the
media files available on your PC. To add new media files to the library, select 'Library', then
'Music', then 'All music' or 'Artist', 'Album' etc. This will show you the current library contents.
You may then simply drag and drop files from other locations into the library. Alternatively, with
media files or folders on the screen, you may right-click on the file or folder and select 'Include
in library' and then select 'Music'. In this way you can quickly add additional content to your
music library.
2. In WMP 12 , click on 'Stream' (see picture at right) and then select 'Automatically allow
devices to play my media'. Then accept the 'Automatically allow all computer and media
devices' option. There are other options (see overleaf) but this is the simplest if you just wish
to quickly enable media streaming to your radio.
3. Press the Standby button to switch the unit on. Then press the Media button as needed
until the Music Player mode display is shown. The main 'Music Player' menu will then be
displayed.
35
Set up UPnP access on a Windows PC - cont.
4. Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the touch panel until 'Shared media' is highlighted
and press the Select button to select. The radio will scan for all available UPnP servers. It may
take a few seconds for the radio to complete its scan. The radio will display '<Empty>' if no
UPnP servers are found.
GB
5. After scanning, select your UPnP server using the Tuning Up or Down and Select buttons
on the touch panel. If you allowed automatic connection previously, your radio should now
connect and you may skip to the next page. If you did not permit automatic connections, your
radio will then normally display 'Unauthorized' at this stage.
6. Your PC may prompt you that there has been a connection to your UPnP server. Whether
prompted or not, in order that the radio may access the music files, you will need to click the
'Library' tab in WMP 12 and select the 'Stream...' item to open the 'Media Streaming' window.
Select 'Automatically allow devices to play my media' then select 'Automatically allow all
computer and media devices'.
Alternatively select 'More Streaming options' to enable sharing on a 'per device' basis.
7. In the 'More streaming options' window, the radio will be listed as a blocked device. Click on
the button shown to select 'Allowed'.
Note:
If you are using Microsoft Windows' firewall software, this should be correctly configured by
WMP 12. If you are using third party firewall software you may need to manually configure it to
allow your unit and WMP 12 to communicate.
8. On the radio, select the named server again using the Tuning Up or Down and Select buttons.
If WMP 12 is now able to communicate with your radio you will be presented with some media
selection options on the display.
36
Locating and playing media files using UPnP
Once the UPnP server has been configured to share media files with your radio, you may select
the files that you wish to play as follows:1. Press the Standby button to switch on the unit. Press the Media button as needed until the
Music Player mode display is shown. The main Music Player menu will then be displayed.
2. Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the touch panel until 'Shared media' is highlighted
on the display and then press the Select button to cause the radio to scan for UPnP servers.
Note that it may take a few seconds for the radio to complete its scan. The display will return
to the Music Player menu if no UPnP servers are found.
3. After a successful scan, press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the touch panel to highlight
your UPnP server and then press the Select button. If the display shows multiple media types,
select 'Music'. (Some UPnP servers can serve pictures and video content to suitable devices.)
4. The radio will now list the media categories which are made available by the UPnP server for example, 'Album', 'Artist' and 'Genre'. Press the Tuning Up or Down buttons on the touch
panel to highlight which category you wish to browse, then press the Select button to confirm

When you first set up sharing with a UPnP server, not all of your files will be available
immediately.
The UPnP server must look inside each file to identify the artist and album information from
'tags' embedded in them. The server may also need time to access the Internet to obtain
additional information such as 'album art' which it can display when you examine your music
library on your PC. For a library of many files this can take some time.
37
Media selection
When searching via UPnP you will have a selection of search criteria as determined by the UPnP
server software on your computer. This allows you to search by a given information type (Album,
Artist, Genre, etc.) and then to narrow the search to an album or to a particular track within an
album.
GB
Some UPnP server applications allow the search options to be customized. The searches
described here are just examples of the possibilities.
Listening to a complete album
1. Use the Tuning Up or Down buttons to choose content by Artist, Album, Genre, etc. according
to your needs then press the Select button to enter your choice.
2. When you reach the album or folder the menu will then switch to showing the tracks in that
album or folder. When searching by UPnP they will normally be listed in track number order (but
as with the search criteria, this can vary according to the server application used).
3. With the first track in the album indicated, press the Select button. The album will then
begin playing. While the radio is playing from your media library, you may use the menus as
described above to choose a different selection. When you select the track from which to play,

MP3 / WMA CD Mode
The DDR-63i is able to play CD-R and CD-RW discs containing MP3 and WMA files. It is
assumed in this section that a file is equivalent to a CD track.
An MP3 / WMA CD may not contain more than 512 files and not more than 99 folders. MP3 and
WMA files should be created with an audio sample rate of 44.1kHz (this is normal for files created
from CD audio content). MP3 and WMA data rates up to 320 kilobits per second are supported.
WMA Lossless files are not supported. The unit will not play files which include digital rights
management (DRM) protection.
When burning CD-R and CD-RW discs with audio files, various problems may arise which could
lead to problems with playback. Typically such problems are caused by poor CD writing or audio
encoding software, or by the hardware settings of the PC's CD writer, or by the CD being used.
Should such problems arise, contact the customer services of your CD writer or software
manufacturer or look in their product documentation for relevant information. When you are

Using SD cards or USB memory devices
This section describes how to use your radio to access and playback your audio files via USB
memory devices and Secure Digital (SD, SDHC) cards. The DDR-63i can also record to SD,
SDHC or USB media in MP3 format.
Important:
Your radio is only designed to work with USB memory flash memory devices. It is not intended to
be connected to hard disk drives or any other type of USB device.
The DDR-63i has been tested with a range of USB memory devices of up to 64GB capacity
and SD cards up to 2GB and SDHC cards up to 16GB are supported. However, there are many
different card variants available and not all cards can be guaranteed to work in the DDR-63i.
Memory must use the FAT 32 filing system in order to operate in the DDR-63i.
Audio formats supported for playback are MP3 and WMA. Playback doesnot support files
encoded using WMA lossless, WMA Voice, WMA 10 professional, nor files of any format which
have DRM protection.
SD card and USB slots are located behind the front panel beneath the touch panel. This is
opened by pushing and releasing the right hand corner of the panel. To close the panel, press the
right-hand side of the panel door until it clicks back into place.
Do not attempt to open or close the panel door using the left hand edge as this may distort
or damage the panel.
Cautions:
In order to minimize the risk of damage to your radio, your SD card or your USB Memory, please
place the unit such that the device cannot easily be knocked while it is inserted in the socket.
Remove the USB or SD card before carrying the unit or if not using the USB or SD feature for
a prolonged period. Place the unit in Standby mode removing your SD card or USB memory
device.

Recording to SD / USB
Your DDR-63i radio has been designed to allow you to make recordings to SD / SDHC cards or
to USB connected memory devices. Recordings are made in MP3 format at 128k bits per second.
SD / SDHC or USB memory media must use the FAT32 file system in order to operate with the
DDR-63i. Such media is usually supplied already formatted or can be formatted using a PC with
a suitable card reader (for SD / SDHC cards) or USB connection (for USB memory).
It is possible to record onto media which already contains files written by the radio or using your
computer. The recorded files will be added to those already present on the media.
Making a recording
1. Select the desired source for the recording (Internet Radio, DAB, FM, CD, etc.). Internet
Radio is shown in the illustration. Set the volume to the required listening level (the volume of
the recording will not be affected by this).
2. Insert the media on to which the recording is to be made.
3. Press the Record button. The display will show "Record initial...". Recording will then start
with the recording source shown on the display. If only one media type is present, then after
a short while recording will start. If both SD and USB media are detected, then the radio will
default to the option previously set. The default media option is accessed through the 'System
settings' menu then by selecting 'Rec default dest.'. Select 'SD card' or 'USB' memory as
needed.

Making a recording cont.
If recording from a CD, recording will be started from the beginning of the currently playing track.
Each track on the CD will be recorded as a separate file on the media.
4. In order to stop the recording press the Record button once more.Recording will stop and a
file will have been written to the storage media.
GB
Files that have been written to the media are held in a folder called "RECORD". Recordings are
held in sub-folders according to the source used for the recording.
The illustration shows the folders as they may appear on a PC running Windows with files in the
CD folder being shown on the right.
Note:
The SD card / USB memory device should only be removed when recording is stopped.
Removing media while recording is in progress may corrupt data on the card leading to the loss
of files previously written.
The USB connection is primarily intended to be used to allow the DDR-63i to play MP3 and WMA
files from solid-state fl ash memory devices. You may be able to play files which have been
stored on a USB hard disc drive (but the drive must have its own power supply). If you wish to
play files from another music player, then we recommend that this is connected to the Auxiliary
input socket.
74
Recording MP3 / WMA files from CD / SD / USB
In addition to recording from conventional sources, the DDR-63i radio can also record from MP3
or WMA files that have previously been written to CD, SD or USB media. In this case the files are
copied rather than re-encoded to MP3 in order to avoid a reduction in quality. You may copy files
from CD or SD to USB and from CD or USB to SD.
1. Select the desired source for the recording (SD, USB or CD).
2. Press the Play button to start playing the source media (if it does not automatically start). Set
the volume to the required listening level (the volume of the recording will not be affected by
this).
3. Insert the media that the files will be recorded on to (SD or USB).
4. Press the Record button. The display will show "Record initial...".
5. If only one media type is present, the audio will stop while the source media is taken back to
the beginning of the current file. Recording will then start.
6. If both SD and USB media are detected, then the radio will default to the option previously set.
The default media option is accessed through the 'System settings' menu then by selecting
'Rec default dest.'. Select 'SD card' or 'USB' memory as needed. The source media will be
taken back to the beginning of the current file and recording will then start.
7. In order to stop the recording press the Record button once more. Recording and playback
will stop and all files that have been played will have been copied to the storage media.

iPod Docking
Your DDR-63i radio has an iPod dock facility which allows you to play digital audio files and
video soundtracks held on your iPod directly. The DDR-63i uses the Universal Dock Connector
developed for use with iPods. Most recent models of iPod are supplied with adaptor inserts which
ensure correct alignment of the iPod with the electrical connector. Earlier models of iPod were
not supplied with the necessary inserts, and so your DDR-63i is supplied with insert types 1 7. Should you require an insert to use your iPod with the DDR-63i, then please contact an iPod
GB
accessories supplier.
1. Ensure that the radio is in standby. Carefully remove the iPod dock connector cover from the

connection (SSID, security key, DHCP/IP address settings) as a profile. Up to four such profiles
are stored in the radio so that if the unit is used in multiple locations there is no need to enter the
network settings when returning to a location previously visited. The radios stores the four most
recent profiles in memory identified by their SSID. Normally the radio will attempt to connect to
one of the stored profiles and only if it is unable to do so will you need to use the Network Wizard.

Accessing your audio files via a UPnP server using Windows Vista and XP
If your computer is running Windows Vista or XP, then Windows Media Player version 11 includes
a UPnP server which will make your files available to your radio. There are other UPnP server
solutions available for non-Windows users and for Windows users who may wish to use an
alternative (see the section of Use with Windows, Apple Mac and Linux). It is beyond the scope
of this instruction book to cover all possible options for UPnP. We explain the use of Microsoft's
Windows Media Player here since that will be the first choice for the majority of users.
GB
Set up UPnP access on a Windows PC
1. If your PC is running Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows XP then you can use Microsoft's
Windows Media Player version 11 to act as your UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) media server.
If not already installed on your PC, Windows Media Player 11 may be downloaded from
Microsoft’s web site and installed by following the instructions detailed in its installation wizard,
or by using Microsoft's Windows Update facility.
2. Once installed, Windows Media Player 11 can create a library from all the media files available
to it on your PC. To add new media files to the library, select the 'Library' tab, then 'Add to
Library… > Advanced Options', click 'Add', choose the files you wish to add and click ‘OK’.
The next step is to connect your radio to Windows Media Player 11 and to configure the program
to allow the radio to access your media library.
3. Press the Standby button to switch the unit on. Then press the Media button as needed until
the Music Player mode display is shown. The main 'Music Player' menu will then be displayed.

Set up UPnP access on a Windows PC - cont.
4. Press the Folder Up or Down buttons until 'Shared media' is highlighted and press the Select button.
The radio will scan for all available UPnP servers. It may take a few seconds for the radio to
complete its scan. The radio will display '<Empty>' if no UPnP servers are found.
5. After scanning, select your UPnP server using the Folder Up or Down buttons. If you are using
WMP 11 as the server, your radio will then normally display 'Unauthorized - Select to retry' at
this stage.
6. Your PC may prompt you that there has been a connection to your UPnP server. Whether prompted
or not, in order that the radio may access the music files, you will need to click the 'Library' tab
in WMP 11 and select the 'Media Sharing…' item to open the 'Media Sharing' window. Make sure
the box 'Share my media to:' is ticked.
7. In the 'Media Sharing' window, the radio will be listed as an unknown device. Click on the
unknown device shown to select it, then click the 'Allow' button and then click 'OK'.
Note:
If you are using Microsoft Windows' firewall software, this should be correctly configured by
WMP 11. If you are using third party firewall software you may need to manually configure
it to allow your unit and WMP 11 to communicate.
8. On the radio, select the named server again using the Folder Up or Down and Select buttons.
If WMP 11 is now able to communicate with your radio you will be presented with some media
selection options on the display.
103
Bit-Rates
Your radio supports a range of audio codecs which provide compatibility
with a wide range of Internet Radio stations. These also allow users to
stream music from their computers or to play directly from USB and
SD/SDHC fl ash memory devices. Note that for any given audio codec,
there are many streaming protocols available, and thus even if an Internet
Radio station uses a supported format, this does not guarantee that every
such station will work with your radio. The radio stations database to which
your radio connects is checked for compatibility so that most stations should
be playable without problems. Similarly when streaming media from a
computer, while a codec may be supported, there can be many subtle
variations in formats, tagging schemes and protocols (even within UPnP).
In general your radio will play the supported formats with most common
UPnP servers.
The following table summarizes the maximum supported bit-rates for the
various audio formats that are playable on your radio. Higher rates may
be playable in some cases but performance of the product may be affected.

All codecs support 2-channel (stereo) coded files only.
All codecs support sample rates up to 48 kbits/sec (includes 32 and 44.1
kbits/sec).
USB and SD/SDHC playback supports MP3 and WMA formats only.Files
which have Digital Rights Management (DRM) protection applied will not
be playable on your radio.
(1) 16 and 24 bit samples are supported in FLAC files
(2) The maximum supported bit-rate is for a 48 kHz sampling, 2 channels
and 16-bits per sample.
