Universal Plug And Play (UPNP) UPNP is based on the TCP/IP protocol as well as new internet protocols aim at communication between facilities. UPNP is made in the hope that all the facilities connected to the internet can communicate without being interrupted by a gateway in the future, so that our communication in the internet can become more fluently, document transmission can become more convenient by using software that supports UPNP and internet applications which cannot be used before can be operated in the future. This is all the convenience brought by UPNP. This product is a multimedia player that supports UPNP. Before using the UPNP function, please make sure that the computer connected with the product via LAN has installed a software that supports UPNP. If not, please install a multimedia player software or share software that supports the UPNP gateway protocol, then open the UPNP share function in the software, so that the access speed can be quickened largely. For example, connect the player to the family LAN and then multimedia documents shared in the Media Player 11 software on the computer can be accessed by the player through UPNP. Firstly, connect the player to the family LAN. You can refer to network connection instructions to connect the player. Secondly, install software that supports the UPNP gateway protocol. Before using the UPNP function, you need to install a software that supports the UPNP gateway protocol in your computer, then start the share function. For example install the Media Player 11 software that supports the UPNP function (remark: older versions of Media Player 11 don’t support the UPNP function) on your computer. Thirdly, share documents through setting the software. After installing the software, open the software’s interface, choose “Media Base” in the main interface of the software and then choose “add to the media base” in the pull-down menu. After adding some documents or folders to the media base, choose “media share” in the pull-down menu.

FAQ This chapter gives you information on how to solve problems that may occur with your player. Q: I have connected the player to my television. Why is no picture shown on my television or no sound coming from my television? A: This problem may have several causes. Please check the following items: 1) Please ensure that you have selected the correct AV source on your television set. 2) Please check that you have connected the correct cable for the output of the video and audio signals. Information on the correct connection of the player to your home entertainment system can be found in the "Connection of TV audio and video output" chapter in the previous Basic Operation guide. 3) Even if you have correctly connected the player, it is possible that it may be in the incorrect video output mode. To select a different mode, press the "TV-OUT" button. Wait a few seconds until the player and your television have implemented the change. Repeat this procedure until the picture is correctly displayed on your television. Q: My Player is connected correctly to my television. I can no longer see my media files in the browser or they are only partially listed in the browser. A: A special media filter is active. Only media files that correspond to the active media filter are displayed on your television. If you select e.g. the media filter "Music ", no picture files are shown in the browser. Press the "ALL”, ”MUSIC”, “PHOTO” or “MOVIES” button on your remote control to change the media filter. If you want to see all supported media files, please choose the media filter "All ". a) Unsupported format. Your Player supports a great variety of media file formats, but if you try to play a file that uses an unsupported file format, a message will be displayed. If you want to check the utilized audio and video format for a media file, you can refer to the “specification” chapter. b) The chosen media source is not connected to the player. If you select a media source that is not currently connected to the player, such as an USB stick, this source will be displayed as empty. As soon as a device is connected, the content appears in the respective path. If no folders or files are displayed for a resource connected via the network, check the settings for your network and your network shares. Please check the user name and password, if they are required for access, and also the firewall settings of your computers. Q: I want to copy files onto an external data storage device with my player, but I always get an error message. A: To use the copy function of your player, the device (or the partition) that you want to copy the data onto, must be formatted with one of the following file systems: FAT, FAT32, NTFS, ext3. Please use only target devices formatted with FAT, FAT32, NTFS or ext3 for copying onto. Q: I want to perform a firmware update for my player but my television goes blank. A: In some cases, the display via HDMI is not correct during a firmware update. Please make sure that your player is also connected to your television via the composite video connection during the firmware update, not only via HDMI, and select the composite video input as the active input of your television. Q: I want to access files with the player that I have shared in my network. My home network is working correctly, but the player does not list the files. A: If you do not have access to the shared files, please check the following points: 1) Check if the network cable is connected properly at both sides, i.e. to the player and to your network. 2) Make sure that the computer that you want to access is running and not in a standby or idle mode. 3) Check the network and file sharing settings on your computer. 4) Check that you have entered the correct user name and password. Please note that they are case sensitive. 5) Make sure that your firewall settings permit the player to access your computer. 6) If you want to access files that are stored on an USB data storage device which is connected to a router and thus made available as a network storage, please note that you must set up a connection to the drive using "My_Shortcuts ". To do so, you must enter the IP address of your router as well as the user name and the password necessary to access the network storage. Q: How is it possible that the playback of a file from a shared folder in the network is aborted? A: The energy saving settings of the computer or the NAS interrupt the connection. If the energy saving settings of your computer or your NAS are active, then they can go into an idle state or a sleep mode even though they are being accessed via the network. During sleep mode no data is transferred via the network. Please adjust the energy saving settings of the media source so that it does not go into sleep mode while you play files via the network. Q: Why is it possible that there are interruptions when playing movies from my local network? A: Sometimes, there are several devices in a network that have to share the maximum data transfer rate possible via a network connection (shared medium). If there are several connections active in the network you use the player in (e.g. to the internet, a shared printer etc.), it is possible that this lowers the data transfer rate available for the streaming of the data to the player to a level that is insufficient for the playback of e.g. a DVD file or a HD movie file. Should you experience such problems, please try to reduce the amount of data transferred by other users of your network. Q: While using the player, it no longer responds to my commands. A: This problem may have several causes. Please check the following items: 1) Please aim the remote control in the direction of the player so that a direct visual contact between these two devices exists and ensure that the infrared receiver of the remote control and the player are not covered. 2) Check the battery in the remote control and, if necessary, replace it with a new one. Q: I have connected the player to my TV via HDMI and I want to change the video output signal, but the video output resolution I want to use is not available. A: This problem may have several causes. Please check the following items: 1) Your TV does not support all possible video output resolutions. Go to the settings menu of your player and select "Auto" under the menu item "TV system". Your player will try to automatically select the best possible video output resolution for your TV. 2) In some rare cases it is possible that not all options supported by the TV are selectable. This problem occurs when the TV is switched on from its standby mode, regardless of the current operating status of the player. In order to be able to select all video output resolutions supported by your TV, disconnect your player from the power supply and reconnect it after a few seconds. Now all available video output resolutions are shown in the settings menu. Q: Why can't I hear any sound on my television when I connect it via HDMI? A: An audio output format that is not supported by your television is selected. Please go to the audio settings menu and select the menu entry "Digital Audio Out" and choose the option "HDMI LPCM/RAW" if your television set does not support real surround sound. Q: My player does not play any sound. A: The volume is too low or “Mute” is active. Please check if the volume for your player and your television or your home entertainment system are set to an adequate volume and that the sound is not switched off via the "Mute" button. Otherwise, please select the correct digital output mode in the setup menu. You can also refer to the audio settings menu. Q: Why mustn't I disconnect the player from the mains supply without having switched if off beforehand? A: The loading or saving of the current system settings takes approx. 10 seconds when the player is turned on or off. If the player is disconnected from the mains supply without having been switched off beforehand, settings and data may be lost. Please always switch off the player by pressing the power button on the device or on the remote control and wait until the power button on the player turns red. Q: Why is the power button still lit in blue even though I have switched it off? A: The loading or saving of the current system settings takes approx. 10 seconds. The illumination of the button changes to red only after all settings have been saved and the player has entered the standby mode. If you want to, you can then disconnect the player from the mains supply. Q: The language of the user interface has been changed. How do I change the language? A: In order to change the selected language, enter the "Settings" menu by pressing the "SETUP" button on your remote control. Select the right menu ("System") and press the “OK” button on your remote control. The available languages are displayed. Please mark the desired language and confirm your choice by pressing the “OK” button. Q: I have adjusted the settings of the player under "Settings" and would like to restore the factory defaults. A: As described in the "Changing System Settings" chapter, execute the menu item "Restore defaults". The player will be reset to the factory defaults. The saved files are not deleted when you do this.
