WEP, WPA or WPA2 key used for encryption so that you can get the radio to communicate with the network,
or your router needs to offer WiFi Protected Setup (WPS).
The radio's WiFi system is compatible with 802.11b, g, n or a networks and can use 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz WiFi
frequency bands.
The radio will typically work within a 10-20 metre radius from your wireless access point. The actual range achieved
will depend upon the building type, other nearby wireless networks, and possible interference sources. DAB and
FM radio functions can operate wherever the radio is able to receive a suitable broadcast signal.
IMPORTANT: Before you continue, make sure that your router (or access point) is powered up and working with
your broadband Internet service (use your computer, smart-phone or tablet to verify this). To get this part of the
system working you must refer to the instructions supplied with those items.

Battery operation
We recommend for economy that the Stream 218 is used with the AC
adaptor whenever possible with battery operation for occasional use only.
Inserting the adaptor into the DC input socket will disconnect the batteries.
If using batteries, only alkaline types should normally be used. Battery life
will vary according to the operating mode of the radio, listening volume,
battery type and temperature. Using quality branded Alkaline batteries,
between 40 and 75 hours should be possible. WiFi takes much more
power than DAB listening for example.
DC IN
9V 1.5A
Aux In
OPEN
To install batteries in your radio follow these steps.
1. Remove the battery cover on the rear of the unit by pushing the battery
door in and downwards.
2. Insert six LR20 (D size) batteries into the spaces in the compartment.
Take care to ensure all batteries are inserted with the correct polarity
as shown inside the battery compartment.
3. Replace the battery cover.
Reduced power, audio distortion or the radio switching itself off are all
signs that the batteries may need replacing.
If the radio is not to be used for any extended period of time it is recommended
that the batteries are removed from the radio.
Rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) cells can be used in the radio
but must be charged outside the radio using an external charger. Note
that readily available D size NiMH cells have a capacity which is only a
small fraction of that of D size Alkaline cells and so they will power the
radio for only a few hours before needing recharging. Never mix batteries
of different types, capacities or brands in the radio.
IMPORTANT: The batteries should not be exposed to excessive heat
VXFKDVVXQVKLQH¿UHRUWKHOLNH$IWHUXVHGLVSRVDEOHEDWWHULHVVKRXOG
if possible be taken to a suitable recycling centre. On no account
should batteries be disposed of by incineration.

Caution: Replace batteries only with the same or equivalent type. Danger
of explosion if the batteries are incorrectly replaced.

Introduction
This page describes the basic means of controlling your Stream 218 radio. Instructions for each
operating mode are given in the later sections of this book.
1. Pressing the On/Standby button brings your radio out of Standby mode if running from the
mains or switches it on if using batteries.
Pressing the On/Standby button while the radio is in use will cause it to return to the Standby
mode with the clock display when running from the mains, or will switch it off after a short delay
when running on batteries.
2. Pressing the Mode button gives you access to each of the operating modes in turn: Internet
Radio, Spotify, Music Player, DAB Radio, FM Radio, Bluetooth and Auxiliary Input. Alternatively
press the Mode button and then turn the Tuning/Select control clockwise or anti-clockwise to
highlight the desired menu item then press the control to select that item.
3. Pressing the Menu button will access the menu system.
4. Many operations require the user to make a selection from the menu. This is done using the
Tuning/Select control. Turn the control clockwise or anti-clockwise to highlight the desired
menu item then press the control to select that item.
If there are more than six 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.

5. 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.
6. The InfoEXWWRQDOORZVWKHGLVSOD\RILQIRUPDWLRQUHODWLQJWRWKHUDGLRVWDWLRQRUPXVLF¿OHEHLQJ

Note: In this booklet, press always means press and release. If it is required to give a long press
on a button this will be described as DSSO\DORQJSUHVV and the button should be held down for
2 to 3 seconds until the radio has responded.

2. Plug the mains adaptor into a wall socket and switch on the socket.
IMPORTANT: The mains adaptor is used as the means of connecting the radio to
the mains supply. The mains socket and any multi-way mains block used for the
radio must remain accessible during normal use. In order to disconnect the radio
from the mains, the mains adaptor should be removed from the mains socket outlet
completely.

This section of this book describes how to connect the radio to your network using the wireless (WiFi) connection.

The following instructions assume that you have just set up the clock and time options using the Setup Wizard
as described on the preceding page.
Wlan region
Europe
These instructions also apply to the Network Wizard in the Network Settings menu (from step 2 onwards).
1. After setting the Daylight Savings options (see page 10), the display will show the 'Keep network connected?'
option. You should choose 'Yes' if you wish to keep the radio connected to the network when it is in Standby
mode. This will allow remote control software to switch on your radio when needed.
If you choose 'No' then your radio will shut down its WiFi connection when it is in Standby, DAB, FM, Bluetooth
or Aux-in modes. This minimises power consumption but it does mean that you will need to switch the radio on
manually in order to use either Spotify Connect, the 'Play to / Cast to Device' function or any remote control
software such as the UNDOK app.
Rotate Tuning to highlight the required option and then press the control to make the selection.
After setting the Keep Connected option, the display will show a list of supported WiFi regional options.
Rotate Tuning to highlight the required region (for the UK choose 'Europe'), and then press the control to
make the selection. Your radio will then scan for available WiFi networks.
2. The radio will enter the Network Settings Wizard and will display 'Scanning...'. The radio will automatically
scan both 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi bands. After a short while the display will show a list of the available WiFi
networks.

8. 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.

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 by the radio. WPA
keys are usually set up using a pass-phrase of between 8 and 63 characters. Your
radio accepts pass-phrases for WPA keys.
9. To enter the WEP or WPA key, characters are selected and entered using the Tuning
control. As you rotate the control, the highlight scrolls through the available characters
as well as the three controls on the right. The character currently highlighted will be

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 the wireless (WiFi) connection. Please see
page 9 for details.
There are literally many thousands of radio broadcasts available via the Internet as well as
'Podcasts'. Your radio provides several ways of searching for broadcasts in order to make
¿QGLQJ DQG FKRRVLQJ WKHP HDVLHU 2QFH \RX KDYH IRXQG WKH UDGLR VWDWLRQV WKDW \RX OLNH
you may either store them as presets within the radio, or add them to a list of your favourite
stations which your radio can access. The radio allows you to store up to 40 presets and as
many favourites as you like.
You may search for an Internet radio station by Location. If you know the name of the station
DQGWKHFRXQWU\IURPZKLFKDVWDWLRQLVEURDGFDVWWKLVPD\EHWKHHDVLHVWPHWKRGWR¿QGD
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 STREAM 218 radio connects to a radio station database which serves many users in
many countries. This means that there is a very wide range of programme 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.

1. Using the web site at KWWSZZZZL¿UDGLRIURQWLHUFRP it is possible
to search among the many radio stations that are available by location,
genre, or language. You may also choose from new or popular stations.
1. If you wish to listen to a radio station which is not currently held in
the database at KWWSZZZZL¿UDGLRIURQWLHUFRP it is possible to
add the details yourself. You will need to obtain the internet address
(URL) for the audio stream for the station that you wish to add. This
may be information provided by the radio station itself, via its web site,
or perhaps passed to you from another listener.
2. When the radio stations that you have found are shown on your
computer screen, they are shown with a 'Play' icon and an 'Add to
favourites' icon (the plus symbol and heart). Clicking on the 'Play' icon
will allow you to hear the radio station via your computer. Clicking on
the 'Add to favourites' icon will cause the radio station to be added to
the list accessible via your radio.
3. To help you organise your favourites, and since you may have a great
many after a while, the web site will allow you to specify the name for
a category or group under which the radio station will be listed on your
radio. Suitable names might be 'Rock', 'Smooth', 'Mum's stations', and
so on. When ever you add another radio station to your favourites you
can either add it to an existing category or create a new one.
4. Once you have Internet radio stations available in your My Favourite
Stations list, you may play these stations from your radio. These
stations will be available on your radio from the Internet Radio menu
item 'My Favourites'.
5. To look at, modify or delete your favourite stations lists on the web
site, use the link 'My favourites' in the 'My account' area. To delete a
favourite radio station, click on the icon with a heart and minus symbol.
Note: The URL for the audio stream will generally not be the URL for
the web page from which you listen to the station on your PC.
2. Use the 'My added stations' link in the 'My account' area on the web
site. This allows you to add details of new stations or to modify those
already added. You can provide a name for the radio station which
will be shown on your radio. You must also provide the web address,
location and format details.
3. Once you have Internet radio stations available in your My Added
Stations list, you may play these stations from your radio. These
stations will be available on your radio from the Internet Radio menu
item 'My Added Stations'.
4. It is possible to add the web addresses for audio streams which may
not be playable by your radio. If you attempt to play such a stream,
your radio will normally display an error message of some kind. The
Roberts Stream 218 can only play MP3, WMA and AAC Internet radio
streams.

It is not possible in this book to describe server applications for all available
environments, and neither is it practical to describe how to get the best
out of each. Windows Media Player is used as an example in this case,
although many of the principles are applicable to other servers as well.
The access to the media, the choice of media for playing, and the use of
the media playback controls from the product or from its controlling app
are similar regardless of the UPnP / DLNA server being used.

This minimises power consumption but it does mean that you will need
to switch the radio on manually in order to use either Spotify Connect,
the 'Play to / Cast to Device' function or any remote control software such
as the UNDOK app.
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 network connected' option in the network settings menu.
In the Standby mode display the WiFi signal indicator is shown with or
without a cross through it, according to the state of the connection.

Windows 'Play to' / 'Cast to Device' function
If you use Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 it is possible to choose a music album,
track or playlist at the computer and then tell Windows that this should
be played on the radio using the 'Play to' function (called 'Cast to Device'
in Windows 10).
Similar functionality is available for handheld devices using Apple's iOS or
Android operating systems by using the UNDOK app. To use this feature,
choose the 'Local Music' source option in the UNDOK app.
When used in this way the playing screen on the radio will show the current
operating mode as 'Local Music'. In this mode the radio operates as a
DLNA Digital Media Renderer.
1. In order to use the 'Play to' / 'Cast to Device' function, the radio must
EHDFWLYHO\FRQQHFWHGWRWKHQHWZRUN,I\RXUUDGLRLVFRQ¿JXUHGWR
keep its network connection in Standby mode (see 'Keep network
connected', at left), then go to step 3.
2. If your radio is not currently in use, or does not have an active connection

the Music player mode using the Mode button. Then select 'Shared
media' from the menu so that the radio establishes a connection with
Windows Media Player on your PC. After this step, all other functions
may be performed from your computer.
3. At yoXU:LQGRZV3&ORFDWHWKH¿OHDOEXPRUSOD\OLVWWKDW\RXZLVK
to play on the radio.
4. Use the right-hand mouse button to pop-up a menu of options for the
chosen item and select the 'Play to' / 'Cast to Device' option.
5. Windows should show you one or more devices, including your radio,
to which you may choose to send the music. Highlight the radio item
and click with the left mouse button.
40
6. Windows will then open a 'Play to' / 'Cast to Device' window showing
the track or tracks to be played. Your computer will then take control of
your radio. Your radio will enter the 'Local Music' mode and after a few
seconds the radio will start playing.
7. While the radio is playing in 'Local Music' mode you can use the controls
in the 'Play to' / 'Cast to Device' window on your computer to skip tracks,
fast-forward or rewind, to pause or restart, and to change the volume
on the radio.
You may also use the controls on your radio to adjust volume, display
track information (press the Info button) or to change operating mode. It
is not possible to skip tracks or pause playback using the radio’s controls
while it is in 'Local Music' mode.
8. While playing, you may select additional content within Windows and
again use the 'Play to' / 'Cast to Device' function (see steps 3 – 5). The
additional tracks will be added to the playlist in the current 'Play to' /
'Cast to Device' window. You may also delete or change the order of
tracks within the 'Play to' / 'Cast to Device' window.
9. When you wish to exit 'Local Music' mode, simply either switch off your
radio or select a different operating mode.
Don’t forget that in order to reselect the 'Local Music' mode and to be able to

successfully with the Stream 218 radio when using Microsoft’s own security
software without problems.

offset which is then stored in memory. Whenever it synchronises the clock using the
internet, including after a power failure, your radio will then set the clock automatically
using this information.
Alternatively you may specify that the time is not automatically updated. In this case
the clock must always be set manually after a power interruption.

Your radio has two separate alarms which can be set to wake you to either the radio or a buzzer alarm. In the event of a power interruption your radio
has built in memory that will retain your alarm settings. Ensure that the time is set correctly before setting the alarms.
The alarms can only be used when the radio is powered from the mains. The
internal clock does not operate when the radio is switched off and powered from
batteries. Alarms may be set while the radio is in standby mode or switched on.

Software update
From time to time, new software features for your radio may be developed. Your radio has therefore been designed
to allow its internal software to be updated using your Internet connection. You should not attempt to update your
radio unless it is recommended to you by Roberts Customer Services. Updating the software may remove all
network settings, radio station presets and alarm settings from your radio. It is important that you do not attempt
this procedure unless you have a good Internet connection and a reliable mains power supply. The radio connects
to your router using a WiFi connection, make sure that this is also reliable before proceeding.
1. The 'Software update' option is accessed via the System Settings menu. When you select 'Software update'
the menu will display 'Auto check setting' and 'Check now'. If you want your radio to check periodically for new
software versions choose 'Auto check settings and then choose 'YES'. If you do not want your radio to check
for updates choose 'NO'.
2. To check if there are any software updates available currently, choose 'Check now'. The radio will check to see
if an update is available. The display will show 'Checking for new versions'. If there are no updates then the
display will show 'Software up to date'. If a software update is available your radio will then offer the choice
of updating the software or not, displaying 'New version available. Update software?'. Select the 'YES' option

If your radio can connect to the network, but is unable to play a particular
Internet radio station, it may be due to one these causes:
If you cannot play the station via your PC this may indicate that the problem
is not necessarily due to your radio, but it could be your network, your
internet connection, the broadcaster, or internet congestion.
1. The station is not broadcasting at this time of the day.
2. The station has reached its maximum allowed number of simultaneous
connections.
3. The Internet connection between your radio and the server (often
located in a different country) is slow. This could be due to internet
congestion, either locally or at a distance.
Music Player / UPnP problems
The use of the Music Player function with UPnP should be straightforward.
However, the cleverness of UPnP means that it is often disabled by default
by security applications and in routers.
4. The station may choose to block internet connections to your geographic
region (sometimes known as geo-locking).
If you are using Windows Media Player (WMP) as your UPnP server, and
if it fails to operate with your radio, please keep this fact in mind: A fresh
installation of Windows and Windows Media Player when using Microsoft's

5. The station is no longer broadcasting. The database of radio stations
that your radio connects to is frequently updated and checked but
may not always be completely accurate.
If it does not work, possible reasons may include:
83Q3IXQFWLRQVEORFNHGLQ¿UHZDOOVRIWZDUH
UPnP functions turned off by security software
6. The radio station is broadcasting using an audio format which is not
playable by your radio (although the Stream 218 does play the most
popular formats used by regular broadcasters).
Try using a PC to listen via the broadcaster’s web site or via the radio
station database web site at KWWSZZZZL¿UDGLRIURQWLHUFRP. If you
can play the station with a PC, it may be that the internet feed or local
network connection is poor. However, some broadcasters (such as the BBC)
provide different data streams for PC users and Internet radio listeners,
so this test is not always conclusive.

Audio codecs
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
PXVLFIURPWKHLUFRPSXWHUVRUWRSOD\GLUHFWO\IURP86%ÀDVKPHPRU\GHYLFHV
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 summarises 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.
