View Full Version : Buttons on side?!

01-23-2013, 07:22 PM
Hi everyone I'm in need of some help. I've just taken delivery of a new AW5000 and everything seems to be going ok (besides the faults that everyone with this product seem to have) but I'm confused with what the buttons from 1-5 on the side are there for as the instructions don't mention them. Can anyone shed some light please?

Hi Steve,
It is quite simple, those are the presets for the internet radio.
The presetting is a little vague, not much help.
But it is described over here http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/cpindex.pl?ctn=AW9000/10&dct=FAQ&faqview=1&list=aa12_list_partial.html&mid=Link_FAQs&refnr=0096062&scy=GB&slg=ENG&view=aa12_view_partial.html

Basically, search your radio station, as soon as it plays, tap the little icon in the middle next to the little heart. Then the list of presets will be shown. Tap on the letters of one of the first five entries.
You will get a message that your radio station is preset now to that button.
If you press the button it will switch to that radio station.

I got my AW9000, this afternoon. The sound is awesome, but the app is a little clumsy. I am sure Philips will enhance the app when we detailed describe what will be a good and nice feature.

Hi Steve, after opened the box, unless you are using Ethernet cable, otherwise you need to setup the connection with your smartphone App. It is the most inconvenience way of this product.

I would recommend Philips to add the setup option via PC too (type in specific IP to access the device, then select router...etc)
