GETTING STARTED
To use SoundBridge you will need to:
I. Make sure you have a compatible music server installed. Compatible music servers include
iTunes,® Microsoft® Windows® Media Connect, Rhapsody,™ Musicmatch,® and others.
II. Connect SoundBridge Ethernet or Wi-Fi network hardware.
III. Connect SoundBridge to powered speakers or your home stereo system’s receiver or
amplifier.
IV. Plug in SoundBridge to AC power (there is no “on/off” switch).
V. Put batteries into your SoundBridge remote control.
VI. Establish a network connection. If you are using Wi-Fi and have WEP security enabled, you
will need to enter your security key with SoundBridge’s remote control.
VII. Enable any music sharing options required by your music server:
a. Windows Media Connect: authorize SoundBridge as a recognized device.
b. iTunes: enable Music Sharing feature in Preferences menu.
c. Rhapsody: enable Music Sharing from the UPnP tab in the Options menu.
d. Musicmatch: enable Music Sharing feature and UPnP option in Options menu.
VIII. Select and connect to your music library.
IX. Play music: Using your remote control, find a song you want to play, then press Play [�] to
play it immediately or Add [+] to add it to the Song Queue.
Read on for detailed explanations of the steps above.

I. Music Server Software Requirements
Roku SoundBridge is designed to act as a remote client for several kinds of music libraries,
including Windows Media Connect, Rhapsody, Musicmatch and iTunes. You can also play WMA
and DRM WMA files purchased from popular online music stores such as Napster.™ (Apple’s
policy does not allow SoundBridge to support protected AAC files.)

What Is a “Music Server”?
SoundBridge is a networked music player. That is, it doesn’t store any music. It plays files that
you have stored on a computer connected to your home network. (It can also play Internet
radio without connecting to your computer, using a direct connection to the Internet.) To play
the music files stored on your computer, SoundBridge needs to receive data from software
installed on the computer that “serves” the music. This “music server” is responsible for
streaming the music to SoundBridge. It is also responsible for sending the list of music you
have available to SoundBridge (when asked), and performing searches of the music library at
SoundBridge’s request.
You probably already have a music server but perhaps didn’t realize it. For example, iTunes acts
as a music server when it shares music to another iTunes user on the network. Microsoft has
released its own music server, Windows Media Connect.
The most common music servers are iTunes, Windows Media Connect, and Rhapsody. But
there are others. If you want to use a PlaysForSure music service, you must use Windows Media
Connect. If you want to use the Rhapsody music service, you must use Rhapsody as your music
server. There is no standard for music servers. They are almost all different. One of the benefits
of SoundBridge is that it supports all the common servers out there with an easy-to-use
interface.
Note: For playing back Internet radio using SoundBridge’s “Radio Favorites” library, you don’t
need a music server, because SoundBridge receives the radio stream directly from the Internet.
SoundBridge Has Two UI Modes
Each music server has different capabilities. To experience the full SoundBridge user interface,
which includes searching and robust browsing modes, you must use a server that supports
these functions, such as iTunes or Windows Media Connect. Some other servers don’t have the
functionality required to deliver the full SoundBridge feature set. For example, you won’t be
able to search, and the browse modes will vary by server.

Hint: There is no power switch to turn on the
SoundBridge. As soon as you plug in the power,
you should quickly see the welcome message
“Roku SoundBridge.” If not, please stop and ensure
that your power cable is connected properly
on both ends. You will need to see a working
display before moving on to the operation of your
SoundBridge.
Warning for M2000 and M500 users: Do not
operate your SoundBridge with the end caps
SoundBridge remote control
removed. Be sure to disconnect SoundBridge from
AC power (by unplugging the power supply from
the wall) before connecting or disconnecting any cables or the CompactFlash Wi-Fi card.
Always be sure to replace the end caps on the unit before plugging in the AC power
supply into the wall, in order to avoid abnormal unit operation due to static discharge.

V. Using Your Remote Control
First, insert two AAA batteries (included) into your remote control.
Then, point it in the direction of your SoundBridge unit (make sure the IR receiver window is
not blocked by a nearby object).

9

VI. Establishing a Network Connection
Wired Ethernet Network: After you have connected SoundBridge to your computer via a
switch/hub/router (or directly to your computer via crossover cable) and powered up the unit,
SoundBridge will auto-configure its network settings (using DHCP or AutoIP). There is nothing
you need to do. If for some reason you have trouble connecting to your network, select the
“SYSTEM CONFIGURATION” option, then select “SHOW WIRED ETHERNET STATUS.”
Wireless Network: If you have a Wi-Fi network in your home, with no security keys set, then
SoundBridge will also auto-connect to your wireless network. If SoundBridge detects more
than one Wi-Fi network (as some advanced users have in their home, or if your neighbor’s
signal is leaking over), then you will be asked to select the SSID (network ID) to connect to.
If you have a security key, you will need to enter your WEP key manually into SoundBridge. This
is the same key you have entered into your Access Point and your computer. Your screen will
look something like this:
No music libraries found (why?)
System configuration

Scroll down on this screen using your down ▽ arrow until the option “SYSTEM
CONFIGURATION” is highlighted, and press Select [4] on your remote control. You will see a
screen that looks like this:
Software version & updates
Select Wi-Fi SSID & password
Show Wired Ethernet status
Show Wi-Fi status

Navigate down to “Select Wi-Fi SSID & password” and select your wireless network name and
password.
For additional help connecting to your network, including password help, see the Wi-Fi setup
section on page 45 of this guide.

10

Personal Firewall (iTunes Users)
If you have trouble connecting and your computer has a firewall installed, make sure your
firewall is configured to allow iTunes music sharing:
Mac: Open System Preferences. Select the Sharing icon and click on the Firewall tab. Select the
option “iTunes Music Sharing.”
PC: Refer to your firewall’s documentation for opening incoming ports. Configure your firewall
to allow incoming connections on port 3689. For WindowsXP Service Pack 2 users, open
“Security Center,” and click on “Windows Firewall” on the bottom right of the window. In the
window that pops up, click on the Exceptions tab, and check to see whether iTunes is shown
and checked in the list of Programs and Services. If not, press “Add Program” and add iTunes.

After these changes have been made, restart SoundBridge by disconnecting it from AC power.
For additional help with Firewall troubleshooting, please visit the troubleshooting of our
support area at www.rokulabs.com/support, or visit our user forums at www.rokulabs.com/
forums. }

11

VII. Enabling Music Sharing
Enable any music sharing options required by your music server:
1. Windows Media Connect: Authorize SoundBridge as a permitted client for Windows
Media Connect by clicking on the tray icon or balloon window to display a list of clients.
(You can also open Windows Media Connect through the Windows Control Panel.) On the
Wizard window that appears, click “Add.” Select your SoundBridge device and click “OK.”
Check to ensure that SoundBridge appears on your list of authorized devices. Click “Close.”
2. iTunes: To turn on the Music Sharing option, select iTunes/Preferences menu (Mac) or
Edit/Preferences (PC). In the dialog box that appears, click the Sharing tab. Check the “Share
My Music” option to enable sharing on your local network. Do not quit iTunes, or you will
break SoundBridge’s connection to your iTunes library.

12

3. Rhapsody: Make sure the Rhapsody application is running, then select User Settings from
the Options menu, navigate to the UPnP tab, and then click the “Start” button to start the
server. You will probably also want to check the “Start UPnP server once logged in” option,
which makes the server start each time you run the Rhapsody application.
Your Rhapsody server should now appear in your list of servers on the SoundBridge, and
you will be able to play all your songs and Rhapsody radio stations.
4. Musicmatch: Select Options/Settings. Click on the “CD Lookup/Connectivity” tab. Select
“Enable Music Server” and then select “Universal. Plug and Play.” You can close Musicmatch
if you like — the UPnP server will keep running in the background.

VIII. Choosing Your Music Library
Once SoundBridge is successfully connected to your network and your server’s music sharing
options are enabled, SoundBridge will automatically find your computer’s music server and
detect any supported music libraries. After SoundBridge detects your music library, you will be
prompted to choose the library you would like to access from a screen that looks something
like this:
Play Dan’s Music Library
Play favorite radio stations
System configuration

Navigate to your preferred library (in this case, “Dan’s music library”) and press Select [4]. You
will then see the “Home Menu,” where you can begin browsing and playing your music.
If instead you see the message “No music libraries found (why?),” your network is not
connecting to your computer properly or your music library is not found. Please choose
“System Configuration” for troubleshooting your network connection. (Make sure your
computer is turned on, your server is running, and music sharing is enabled.)
After you have successfully connected to your music library, SoundBridge will automatically
connect to that library upon startup. If you would like to return to the screen that allows you
to choose your desired libraries manually, select the “Change library or configuration” option
located at the bottom of SoundBridge’s Home Menu (accessible by pressing the Home Menu
[ ] button).

13

appearance of the music visualizer, such as whether it appears full screen during playback, and
what kind of information is displayed when a song is playing.
For a complete list of SoundBridge settings, please see the “Advanced Features” section of this
user guide.

XI. Checking for the Latest Software (recommended)
Updating your software is quick and easy. You’ll need SoundBridge connected to a network

In that case you don’t need to do anything. Press Select [4] to accept this message and
return to the previous “System Configuration” menu. Press Exit [�] to return to the “Change
Library” menu, navigate to the music library you want to play, and press Select [4].
Alternatively, if your software requires updating, you will be prompted to download the
update. Select “Yes.” After the above “contacting server” message, you will see the following
screen:
Upgrade successful
Select OK to reboot

Select OK and you will see a screen confirming that your unit is rebooting.
10. After your software has been updated, you may want to check Roku’s web site for the latest
version of the SoundBridge user guide. Roku will release a new version of the user guide for
PDF download if new features or functions have been added to the SoundBridge software.
Please visit www.rokulabs.com/support for the latest version of the manual.

XII. Wall or Under-Cabinet Mounting (optional)
Your SoundBridge ships with a portable black rubber table stand which looks great on your
shelf or night stand. An optional wall mounting kit is available for sale at www.rokulabs.com/
buy. This allows the SoundBridge to be mounted to the wall or under a cabinet using a sleek,

To begin navigating through your music, start on your “Home” menu, by pressing the Home
Menu [ ] button. The display on SoundBridge should look something like this:
Ë Playlists
Browse

Only the first two lines of the Home Menu are displayed at once (or the first four lines, if you
are using M2000 with four lines enabled in your display settings, or one line if you are using an
M1000 or M2000 with the largest font size enabled), but the scroll bar at the right of the screen
shows you where you are in the list, and how much more information is available above and
below your current screen view. Use the Up/Down △ ▽ arrow buttons to navigate between the
following options on the Home Menu:

Ë

Playlists
Browse
Search

press Select [4]. This screen also appears by default after a few minutes of inactivity on
the remote control.
If you press Play [�] on an album track, that track will play, followed by each track remaining
on the album. For example, if you press Play on track 5 on an album with 10 tracks total, then
tracks 5–10 will play. (For continuous playback of the entire album, press Repeat [ ] on your
remote control — the album will play until the end, then start again at the beginning.)
You can also navigate to an album, artist or genre selection while browsing, then press Play [�]
to start playing the entire contents of the selected category. (Note: This feature will not work if
using a non-search-capable UPnP music server.)
If you are not sure what you have selected to play, simply press the Down arrow ▽ from your
“Now Playing” screen (the screen that displays the currently playing song). This will list your
upcoming songs, also known as your “Song Queue” (see next section).
Press Pause [;] at any time to put playback on hold. Press Play or Pause a second time to
resume playback.
Hint: If you navigate to a new song and press Play while your original selection is
playing, you will “flush” the old selection (called the “Song Queue”) and replace it with
your new selection. Therefore you should only press Play when you want to erase your
existing Song Queue and start a new one. Use the Add [+] button to add a song to the
existing Song Queue.

Building a Song Queue
Let’s say you would now like to choose several different songs or selections to play in a row.
This is called building a “Song Queue.” SoundBridge automatically builds a Song Queue every

20

time you select a song or album to play. You can add to that list by navigating to your preferred
music and pressing Add [+]. The selection will be added to the end of the current Song Queue.
You may add a single song, an entire album, all songs by an artist, all songs in a genre, or any
search result — just browse to the selection you prefer and press Add. For example, if you
would like to play all songs by Coldplay, select the “Browse artists” option from the Home
Menu/Browse option. Navigate to Coldplay in your artist list, and press Add. All songs on all
albums by Coldplay will be played by album, in the order they appear on each album. For
more information about browsing and searching options, see the “Browsing” and “Searching”
sections later in this user guide.
You have several other options for building a Song Queue. After you press Select while
browsing on a song, a “Song” menu appears with the following options:
1. Play, starting with the selected song (and clear previous Song Queue)
2. Get information about the selected song
3. Play the selected song only (and clear previous Song Queue)
4. Add this song to the Song Queue (same as pressing the Add button)
Note that both “play” options 1 and 3 above are “destructive”; they will clear your previously
existing Song Queue. The “add” option, however, will add the selected song to the end of your
existing queue.
The first, “play these songs” option is described in the section above — it starts playing your
album (or other browsed list), beginning with the current track.
If you choose “Play songs” on any track in your selection, the entire list is added to the Song
Queue, but playback starts on the chosen track. If you have the Repeat [ ] option selected,
the earlier tracks in the queue will play after the last song (and so on indefinitely). If you have
the Shuffle [ ] option selected, then the chosen track will play first, followed by all the other
tracks in the list in random order.
The “Add song to Song Queue” option behaves similarly to the Add button— it places the
current song at the end of your playlist.
You can add an almost unlimited number of songs to your Song Queue. Each selection will be
played in the order it was entered (unless you have chosen to Shuffle your Song Queue).

21

Hint: After you have selected multiple songs to be played in turn, you can use the “Next
Track” : and “Previous Track” 9 buttons to skip from song to song in your Song Queue.

Reviewing a Song Queue
At any point, you can review what’s in your Song Queue by pressing the down arrow 6 from
the Now Playing screen, which is the default screen that appears while SoundBridge is playing.
The Now Playing screen looks something like this:
Don’t Panic
Coldplay

0:10/2:17 4
Parachutes (2000) (|||------)

You can also press Exit [�] several times from any point in your browsing; eventually, the Now
Playing screen appears.
Alternatively, you can press Home Menu [ ], then select the “Show song queue” option. You
will see the entire list of songs in your song queue; refer to the scroll bar on the right side of the
screen to determine where in the list you are located. Press the Up/Down arrows △ ▽ to see
the entire list of selections in your Song Queue. The currently playing selection is indicated by a
speaker X icon.
You cannot save a Song Queue that you have created — it’s only held in memory temporarily
and then erased when you build your next Song Queue. If you would like to build a Song
Queue that you can save and recall at will, please build a Playlist in your music jukebox software
(see “Playing a Saved Playlist” below).

22

Erasing a Song Queue
If you change your mind and decide you don’t want to play the Song Queue you’ve just
created, simply select something else to play. Navigate to another selection (song, playlist, etc.)
and press Select [4] (not Add). This selection immediately replaces your old Song Queue.

Repeat and Shuffle
Pressing Repeat [ ] once makes your Song Queue play continuously. You will see the Repeat
icon q displayed on the right side of your “Now Playing” screen below the Play 4 icon.
Pressing Repeat again makes the current song play over and over; you will see another Repeat
icon, a circle with just one arrow
. Press Repeat a third time and you will remove the repeat
command altogether.
Pressing Shuffle [

] while playing a Song Queue will give you the following options:

Shuffle On — will play everything in your Song Queue in random order. (The shuffled order
of songs will be displayed in the Song Queue.) An icon with two crossing arrows
will be
displayed on your Now Playing screen.
Shuffle Off — will play everything in your Song Queue in the original order.
You can execute the Repeat and Shuffle command from any menu in SoundBridge. Even
though you can only see the mode change on the Now Playing screen, the command is
taking effect.

Pausing Music Playback
Press the Pause [;] button to halt music playback. Notice a Pause icon ; is displayed at the
top right of your “Now Playing” screen, indicating that you’re in Pause mode. Pressing the Play
[�] button (or the Pause button again) will resume playback right where you left off.
When the Song Queue has played all the way through, it will stop. You will see the Stop icon
< on the right side of your display. To start playing your Song Queue again at the beginning,
press the Play button.

23

Hint: Pressing Pause [;] to stop playback of your Song Queue will only do so
temporarily. If you want to clear the memory of your old Song Queue or selection
entirely, simply navigate to something else you want to play, and press Play [�] to play
your new selection, effectively flushing your old selections or Song Queue away, to be
replaced by your new selection. Therefore, if you want to build on your existing Song
Queue, press Add [+] instead of Select [4] and your prior selections will be preserved.

Skipping Tracks During Playback
If you’d like to skip a song during playback, press the “Next Track” button : on your remote
control. Or, navigate to another song through your browsing options and press Select [4].

Playing a Playlist
Let’s say you have created a playlist of your favorite Disco hits in your music jukebox software,
and named it DISCO INFERNO. Press the Home Menu [ ] button to go to the Home Menu.
Go to the PLAYLISTS option, then press the Select button. Use your Up/Down △ ▽ arrows to
browse your playlists one by one, find the one called DISCO INFERNO, then press Play [�] to
play all songs on the playlist immediately or Add [+] to add the playlist to your Song Queue.
Hint: If your playlist was created in Windows Media Player or other software using
Windows Media Connect, be sure to save your playlist in the My Music/My Playlist folder
on your hard disk.

24

Browsing by Artist, Song or Composer
From the Home Menu, use the Down ▽ arrow to highlight “Browse” and then press Select [4].
Navigate to “Browse Artists” and press Select. Your screen will look something like this:
Ë Annie Lennox
Ben Folds Five

∧ 
∨

Find the artist you would like to play and press Select. You will see a screen that lists the
albums available by that artist:
Ë 
Medusa

While the first menu option  is active, press Add [+] to add this selection
to your existing Song Queue, or press Play [�] to play all songs by this artist instead and replace
your existing Song Queue. (Songs will play in the order they appear on each album, with each
album played in alphabetical order).
Hint: Artist names starting with “the,” such as the Beatles, will be found under the first
letter of the word following “the” — in this case, “B” for “Beatles.”
You can choose specific albums or songs to play by navigating down to your desired album and
pressing Add to add to an existing Song Queue, or Play to replace an existing Song Queue.
Note: if your selected album contains songs by different artists, such as compilation albums or
movie soundtracks, only the song(s) by your artist will be played.
Hint: To browse faster, instead of browsing up and down one at a time using Up/Down
arrows △ ▽, you can “speed browse” through your lists by pressing the Left/Right arrows
◁ ▷. This will skip by the letter of the alphabet. Note that the search function is a string
search — “RA” will return not just Radiohead but also other words containing the string,
such as Shakira and Franz Ferdinand.
Browsing by song or composer works the same way as browsing by artist — see instructions
above.

25

Browsing by Genre
From the Home Menu, navigate down to the BROWSE option and press Select [4]. Scroll down
to “Browse Genres” and press Select. You will see an alphabetical listing of genres that are
available in the music library that you are browsing. To add all songs within a Genre to your
Song Queue, highlight that Genre and press Add [+] (or Select [✓] to open additional options
for playback).
To browse within a genre, such as Hip Hop/Rap, press Select on your desired genre. You will
have the option to see all available artists in that genre, and a list of individual albums by those
artists. At any point, you can press Add to add that selection to your Song Queue or press
Select to navigate to the next level of detail.
Hint: Information about your music, including Song Name, Artist, Album, and Genre
is usually created automatically by the software you used to save your audio CD files
on your computer’s hard drive (aka ripping). This process creates data called “ID3 tags”
to describe each track. If this data is missing from your audio files, they will not appear
when you browse by that data category. If you need to edit your ID3 tags, or if you are
not satisfied with the description of genres (or other data) assigned to your music file, it
is possible to edit that data in iTunes, Windows Media Player or other supported music
jukebox programs. (In iTunes, select the file(s) to edit, click on File/Get info, then click on
the Info tab).

Search Options
To search for a specific selection by spelling it out, you can press the Search [�] button on your
remote control, or navigate down to the “Search” option from the Home Menu. Either way, you
will have the following options:
Search
Search
Search
Search

for albums
for artists
for titles
keywords

Press Select on the option you would like to search with. Then, use your Left/Right ◁ ▷ arrows
on the remote control to enter characters for spelling your selection and then pressing Select.
When you are done spelling, use the Down ▽ button to go to the OK option and press Select.
(If you make a mistake, use the Down ▽ button to go to the Delete option and press Select.)

26

Hint: Partial spelling is OK — the Search function searches for letters anywhere in the
word, as opposed to just at the beginning. For example, to search for Radiohead, you can
enter any combination of letters found in the word (“RA,” “DI,” “HE,” etc.), and the results
will return all Artists containing those letters (e.g., if you enter “DI” you’ll get Radiohead,
India Arie, and Diana Krall).
When you find the music you like, use the Add button to add it to your Song Queue. If
searching for albums or artists, you can press Select to navigate down one level to individual
tracks.
If an exact match is not found, your results will show an empty search.

Changing Music Libraries
If you have multiple music servers running on your network at once, you can easily navigate
between them. Press Home Menu [ ]on your remote control. Navigate down to CHANGE
LIBRARY OR CONFIGURATION and press Select [4]. All your available libraries will be displayed.
Press Select to access your desired music library.

Internet Radio
One of SoundBridge’s coolest features is its ability to play Internet radio stations. Currently,
there are three ways to listen to Internet radio using SoundBridge: from a playlist created in
iTunes; from Windows Media Player; and from the “Favorite Radio Stations” music library, which
you can customize and play without the computer on.
Hint: it is possible to run iTunes just for playing Internet radio while using Windows
Media Connect or another server for playing music.
To play Internet radio stations with the iTunes music server, follow these steps:
1. Create an iTunes playlist containing your favorite radio stations. In iTunes, create
a new playlist (any name is okay, but let’s use “RadioFavorites” for this example). Next,
browse the iTunes Internet radio station list by clicking on the Radio button on the
Source tray of iTunes:

27

Then, drag & drop the radio stations you like onto the new “RadioFavorites” playlist. The
result is a standard iTunes playlist that contains your favorite radio stations (see next
image).

28

2. Play your playlist on SoundBridge. From the SoundBridge Home Menu, select
“Playlists.” Scroll down until you find the “RadioFavorites” playlist. Select it. You can now
scroll through your favorite radio stations. Press Select [4] to start playing your desired
station. Use the Up/Down △ ▽ arrows to see the list of available stations, or the Next
Track : , Previous Track 9 buttons to switch stations.
To play Internet radio with SoundBridge’s “Favorite Radio Stations” Library:
With the “Favorite Radio Stations” Library, you can access your favorite Internet radio stations
without running your iTunes music server on your computer — in fact, your computer does
not even have to be turned on. All you need is an active Internet connection on your home
network. To navigate to the “Favorite Radio Stations” Library, follow these steps:

29

1. On your SoundBridge remote, press Home Menu [
OR CONFIGURATION and press Select [4].

]. Navigate down to CHANGE LIBRARY

2. Your available music libraries will be displayed, including the one named “Favorite Radio
Stations.” Select that library and you will see a list of twenty stations.
3. Press Select to begin playback of your favorite station.
When you begin playback, you will see a screen similar to this:
Michelle Shocked — Black Widow
http://www.radioparadise.com
RadioParadise.com

The song and artist data is provided by each Internet radio station. Therefore, it may not be
available for every Internet radio station, or it may appear in a slightly different format.
SoundBridge includes twenty pre-saved radio stations. You can change these stations to your
own ten favorites as follows:
1. If you are still in the “Favorite Radio Stations” music library, exit it and enter your iTunes
library (following steps 1 and 2 above, choosing the name of your iTunes music library in
step 2).
2. Create a playlist in iTunes containing your favorite radio stations, as described previously in
this section (on page 28). {#}
Hint: Your playlist can contain as many radio stations as you like, but only the first twenty
will be saved to your favorites. You can rearrange them by dragging and dropping to their
desired order inside the iTunes playlist.
3. On the SoundBridge Home Menu, select Settings, then Memorize Radio Playlist.
4. You will see the following instructions: “Click on a playlist — the first twenty streams will be
saved.” Navigate to the playlist you want to save, in our example “RadioFavorites,” and press OK.
5. You will receive a confirmation of what Internet radio streams were saved (up to the first
30 characters of the name will be displayed). You can press Exit [�], or navigate to your
desired audio stream and press Select [4] to play it immediately.

30

To edit the saved stations in the “Favorite Radio Stations” library, simply repeat steps 1–5 above.
Your old selections will be overwritten with your new ones. If your favorites total fewer than
twenty stations, SoundBridge will add those to the top your Favorite Radio Stations selections,
and the remaining selections will remain the ones that were in the list previously.
You can also change your favorite radio station presets using SoundBridge’s web page control
— see section below.
Note: To date, there is unfortunately no standard for Internet radio stations, and many different
audio formats and streaming techniques are used in the industry. SoundBridge will support many
Internet radio stations, but not every one of the many, sometimes proprietary, standards. The
only sure way to know if a radio station will play on SoundBridge is simply to try it.

Web Page Control
Use SoundBridge’s Web page to control SoundBridge playback remotely, configure your
SoundBridge or configure your “Favorite Radio Stations” presets directly by entering the stream
URL directly into the web page. (See previous section for more information about “Favorite
Radio Stations”.)
There are several ways to access the web page:
1. PC/Windows users: You can configure your computer to display UPnP devices including
the SoundBridge in your “My Network Places” window, which can be opened from the
Windows Start menu. If this option is not already enabled follow the steps below.
•
•
•
•
•

Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.
Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
In the Components list, select the Networking Services check box, and click Details.
Make sure the UPnP User Interface check box is selected.
Once enabled, double-click the device to open the SoundBridge web page.

2. Apple/OSX users: Launch the Safari web browser. Because SoundBridge uses the Bonjour
protocol (formerly known as Rendezvous), the device will automatically announce itself. In
Safari, be sure you have your bookmark list showing as in the screen shot below. If it is not

31

showing, go to the Bookmark menu and select “Show All Bookmarks”. Your screen should
look something like the one below. Click on the Rendezvous option in the bookmark list
to reveal your SoundBridge. (If more than one device is connected, they will be named
SoundBridge, SoundBridge (2), and so on.)

Then, double-click on the name of your device to open the SoundBridge web page.
The SoundBridge Web page includes the following four tabs:
1. Now Playing — Allows for control of playback of current music selection, including
Pause, Play, Next/Previous Track, Stop, Repeat and Shuffle. You can also change the
volume level.

32

2. Internet Radio — Allows you to specify up to twenty of your favorite Internet radio
streams, to be stored in the “Favorite Radio Stations” music library.
If you experience problems with playback of an Internet radio stream you copied from
a web browser, make sure that your stream ends with the “.pls,” or “.m3u” extension
— sometimes copying the link that appears in your browser will exclude this information
(because it’s being redirected behind the scenes) and your stream will not play without it.
For example: you entered a URL looks something like this: http://www.hostname.
com:9152. You can try simply adding ‘listen.pls’ to the end of the URL, like this: http://
www.hostname.com:9152/listen.pls. Currently, SoundBridge can stream MP3 and WMA.

33

RealAudio streams (ending in .ram or .rm) are currently not supported. (Stay tuned for
additional format support in future software updates.)

When you are finished entering your radio streams, press the “Update Radio Streams”
button at the bottom of the page.
Hint: If for some reason you copy a URL that is too long to fit inside the text field
(longer than 250 characters), or if you erase the URL in the field, SoundBridge will
automatically revert to the previous URL that was in your list before.
Please see the previous section for information about accessing and playing your stored
stations from the “Favorite Radio Stations” music library.

34

3. Configuration — Use this page to enter a unique name for your SoundBridge unit,
choose a language other than English, or set options for displaying the time and date on
your SoundBridge when it is in Standby mode.

35

4. Status — Use this page to view the version of software currently running on your
SoundBridge. You can also review your network connection information, including IP
address and MAC addresses.
If you are using a Wi-Fi connection, this page will display your Wi-Fi signal strength and
the name of the network to which you are connected.
When you are finished using your web page, simply close your browser window.

36

When You Are Finished Using SoundBridge
When you are finished playing music and using the SoundBridge altogether, just press the
Standby [�] button on your remote. In Standby mode, SoundBridge can display the date
and time or a blank display, depending on your preference. (See page 41 for more information
about setting these preferences.)
If you were playing Internet radio from your “Favorite Radio Stations” library when you pressed
Standby, then pressing Standby again will resume playback of that station. Otherwise it will
return you to the music library to which you were most recently connected.
If you plan to disconnect the SoundBridge from AC power after you are done using it, be sure
to press the Standby button first. This logs you out of the music server software running on
your computer.
Note: Wait approximately 10 seconds after pressing Standby [�] before unplugging
SoundBridge; this gives SoundBridge time to flush its settings for a clean reboot.
Hint: If you unplug the SoundBridge from AC power five times without pressing
Standby [�] on your remote first, iTunes may lock you out of connecting to the server.
That’s because iTunes allows a maximum of five users to connect at one time, and if
you don’t put SoundBridge into standby mode first, iTunes may believe you are still
connected. To restore your access to the iTunes server, close iTunes and then restart it.
You should then have no trouble connecting to the iTunes server as before.

37

ADVANCED FEATURES
Control Brightness, Contrast and Text Display
The Bright [�] button on your remote lets you change the brightness of your display using the
Left/Right arrows ◁ ▷. For SoundBridge M500, you will see the option to change contrast using
the Up/Down arrows △ ▽. For SoundBridge M1000 and M2000, text size can be controlled
using the Up/Down arrows △ ▽, affecting how many lines of text you see on screen at one
time. M1000 can display one line or two lines at once; M2000 can display one, two, or four lines
at once.

The Settings Menu
SoundBridge settings can be changed in the SETTINGS option located at the bottom of the
Home Menu. Your Settings screen will show the following options (scroll down using your
remote control to see the complete list):
Visualizer Settings....
a Return to Now Playing when idle
a Scroll long info in Now Playing
a Display composer for classical works
Skip items un-checked in iTunes

Music Visualizer Settings
You can customize the kind of visualizer to display, whether it appears full-screen or on the
right side of the Now Playing menu, and other options. Use the Home Menu/Settings/Visualizer
Settings command to explore these options.

38

Clock Settings
When in standby mode, SoundBridge can display the date and time, similar to the screen
below.
1:17:49 PM
Monday, April 17, 2005

You can customize the clock display in a number of ways:
1. When in Standby mode, use the Left/Right arrows to adjust the brightness of the clock
display. (This will not affect the brightness settings of the display when in regular playback
mode.)
2. When in Standby mode, use the up/down arrows to cycle through modes of display. For
example, you can display large and small fonts, display the time but not the date, etc.
(Again, these settings will not be applied to your display when you resume SoundBridge’s
regular playback mode.)
3. Use SoundBridge’s web page to configure the format of the date and time. You can also
turn off the clock display altogether. Please see page 32 in the Music Playback section of
this user guide for instructions on launching your SoundBridge web page.
After your web page is launched, click on the Configuration tab. Scroll down on the page until
you see a screen that looks similar to the one below.

39

Here, you can customize how your time appears, and correct errors in the display of your date
and time. First, be sure that your time zone is selected correctly. SoundBridge uses an Internet
connection to display the proper time for your time zone. If your Internet connection is not
available, SoundBridge will be unable to display the date and time in Standby mode.

40

Format your time display by choosing what to display in each of four fields. SoundBridge
“strings together” all the fields to create the time display. For example, if you don’t want to see
seconds, or don’t want to see “AM/PM”, select the hour and minute format, then choose the
“Leave Blank” in the remaining drop down menus.
The date selection works the same way — you can choose the format that best fits your
geographic standard or your personal preference.
To disable the date/time display altogether when SoundBridge is in standby, select the
corresponding option on this page.
When you are finished, simply close your web page.

Language Setup
Use SoundBridge’s web page to choose a language other than English. Please see page 32 in
the Music Playback section of this user guide for instructions on launching your SoundBridge
web page. Then, choose the “Configuration” tab. You can choose your language in one of two
ways:
1. From the drop down menu titled “Select Language”, Choose from the options available.
(Currently, SoundBridge ships with the following language options: Japanese, German,
French, Swedish, and English).
2. If your language is not listed in the above options, you can upload a Language Resource File
containing the instructions to display another language. To see if a third-party translation
already exists for your desired language, please visit: www.rokulabs.com/support/
international. To download and edit or “translate” this file for your language, click on the
“View Current Language Resource File” link. To upload a resource file that you or another
third party has created, use the Browse button on the web page to locate the file on your
computer’s hard drive, then click “Update” to load it into SoundBridge.
Hint: You can always revert to SoundBridge’s built-in English language display by
clicking the Revert button on the bottom of the Language settings area.
When you are finished editing your language settings, simply close your web page.

41

Safe Mode
SoundBridge includes an option to run in “Safe Mode,” which is a mode with limited features
that is enabled automatically when SoundBridge detects that its software has become
corrupted. Its goal is to download a new version of software from Roku and to restore factory
settings. When SoundBridge enters Safe Mode, you will notice the text “Safe Mode” displayed
on the right side of the display. Your menu will only include options to update your software
and restore factory defaults.
While in Safe Mode, your stored network settings will not be recalled. Therefore it will be
necessary to connect SoundBridge via Ethernet before SoundBridge can connect to the
Internet in order to download new software.
Safe Mode can also be entered manually by powering SoundBridge off (by unplugging it from
power) and on again, while at the same time pressing and holding any button on the remote
control.

Restoring Factory Default Settings
To restore SoundBridge’s factory default settings, press Home Menu, select “Change Library or
Configuration,” then select System Configuration, then select “Reset to Factory Defaults.”

Geeks — Read This
The SoundBridge has a command line interface that you can “telnet” to for piddling about. You
will need to telnet to port 4444. Type “?” at the command prompt to see a list of commands.
We will be documenting in more detail how to control a SoundBridge in the coming months, as
well as updating the software in this area. When documentation is available, it will be posted
on the developer section of our web site.
SoundBridge has a built-in UPnP AV “media renderer.” This protocol can be used to control the
SoundBridge from your own software. Please watch the developer section of our web site for
updates on this feature.

WI-FI SETUP AND PASSWORD HELP
Background
Why Wi-Fi?
With SoundBridge’s wireless functionality, you can stream music from computers on your
wireless network to one or more Wi-Fi enabled SoundBridge devices via your wireless access
point (WAP). You can even connect up to five SoundBridges to one iTunes music library, or up
to ten SoundBridges to one Windows Media Connect library, and listen to different tunes in
every room of your house.

Wi-Fi Hardware
For a list of compatible Wi-Fi access points that Roku has tested with SoundBridge, please visit
www.rokulabs.com/support.

Wi-Fi Setup Instructions
1. Verify that your wireless network is up and running on your computer. If you are setting
up this wireless network for the first time, please make sure that you have followed your
wireless vendor’s instruction manual for proper configuration of your wireless access point.
2. SoundBridge M1000 users, skip to step 3. M2000 and M500 users, follow these steps:
- Remove both the left and right end caps of SoundBridge by pressing on the two release
tabs labeled “push.” If your SoundBridge is currently powered on, press Standby on your
remote and then disconnect SoundBridge from power by unplugging the AC power
cord.
- Remove the CompactFlash wireless card from its packaging and insert the card into the
CF slot on the left side of SoundBridge. Make sure that the “Roku” label and two small
status lights are facing away from you as you gently push the card into place. (Note: The
LED lights will not be illuminated until you power on SoundBridge.) Be careful, forcing
the card into position may damage your device.
- If you had been previously using a wired Ethernet connection, disconnect the cord

43

from the SoundBridge. Make sure you have only the Wi-Fi card or the wired Ethernet
connection attached to the device — never both at the same time.
3. Run your music server software on the computer connected to your wireless network.
4. Turn on your SoundBridge by plugging the power cord into the right side of the device,
then into the wall AC outlet. Verify that the screen displays the Roku logo.
5. Upon startup, SoundBridge will attempt to connect to any wireless access point within
range that does not require a password. If your home wireless network requires no
password and there are no other wireless networks in the vicinity (such as those spilling
over from a neighbor’s house), then your SoundBridge should automatically connect with
no additional configuration, and you will see a list of music servers on your network to
connect to.
However, it’s possible you will need to configure your wireless network as described below:
- If your SoundBridge detects more than one available wireless network, then you will
need to configure SoundBridge’s Wi-Fi settings. Choose “System Configuration” from
the Home Menu, and then select “Select Wi-Fi SSID & Password.” You will then see a list
of available wireless networks. If you see your desired network, select it. If you don’t see
the desired network, make sure that your wireless router is within range and that it is
functioning properly.
- Some wireless networks don’t “advertise” themselves (a.k.a. “closed networks”). If your
wireless access point is functioning properly but you do not see the network listed, you
should enter your wireless network name by selecting “Specify a wireless network...”
(Refer to your wireless access point’s documentation or utility software if you don’t know
the name of your wireless network.)
- Next, your SoundBridge will ask you whether the wireless connection requires a
password. If you do not have a wireless password, select “No” and skip to the next
section. If you do have a wireless password, select “Yes.” Read the instructions on the
screen to determine what type of wireless password you have on your network. If you
are unsure, you may wish to refer to your wireless router documentation. (See hints

44

below for help finding your wireless access point’s password.) Enter your password
using the Left/Right arrow keys to navigate between characters. Press Up to enter into
uppercase mode, and Down to go back to lowercase. When you’re done, press Down
again to go to and select OK.
- Select “OK” to reboot the unit. Upon restarting, SoundBridge should automatically
connect to the network you have specified.
If the connection is successful, all the available music libraries will be listed on your screen. Use
the up and down arrows on your remote to navigate to your desired library and press Select
[4] to begin browsing your music library.

Troubleshooting Wi-Fi Setup
If you have problems connecting to the SoundBridge to your music library via Wi-Fi, please
check the following:
1. Make sure the SoundBridge is powered on (the LED screen is lit). M2000 and M500
models: Are the LED lights lit up inside the CompactFlash Wi-Fi adapter? If not, your card
is not receiving power. Remove and re-insert the CF card with the label facing away from
you. It should require gentle pressure to be inserted into the CF slot.
2. Is SoundBridge within range of your wireless network signal? Performance varies
depending on wireless network hardware, physical barriers such as walls, and signal
interference.
3. Is your computer on and your wireless access point plugged in?
4. Is your music server software running on your computer? Are your music sharing options
enabled? (See “Enabling Music Sharing” on page ##.) {#}
5. Did you enter your password correctly (if you have one), including case sensitive
characters?

Obtaining Your Wireless Access Point’s Password
Follow these instructions to determine your wireless access point password, and be sure to
have a pen ready to make a note of the case-sensitive password as well as the password type,
either hexadecimal (hex) or ASCII.

46

Wi-Fi Setup Examples
Apple AirPort (Mac Users)
The Apple Airport is a very popular access point. To see its configuration, open your AirPort
Admin Utility on your Mac (it is in the Utilities folder). Select your AirPort and choose
“Configure.”

47

You may need to enter the password for your base station. You should then see the screen
below. The line labeled “Wireless Network Name”: is the name of your network, also known as
an “SSID.” You will either select this network on the SoundBridge screen or enter it manually if
your network is “closed.”

48

If your network is password protected, you should choose “Equivalent Network Password” from
the “Base Station” menu (see illustration above) and write down the value that appears in the
dialog (see illustration below). This is the value you will enter into SoundBridge’s wireless setup
password field. (Select password type “hex” in the SoundBridge menu.)

49

Apple AirPort (PC Users)
Step 1: Open the AirPort Admin utility (Start/Programs/Airport Admin Utility). Select the
network you would like to configure. You should then see the configuration screen below.

50

Step 2: Make a note of the name of your wireless network in the “Network Name” field (see
below).

51

Step 3: Select the “Equivalent Network Password” from the “Base Station” drop down menu.

52

Step 4: Write down the displayed password(s), as well as their format (“hex” in the example
below). Press OK to close the dialog box.

53

Linksys WAP54G
The Linksys WAP54G access point is a popular 802.11g access point. Getting the hexadecimal
WEP key from the WAP54G is an easy process. First, open a web browser and connect to the
access point. Connecting to the access point is done by entering the access point’s IP address
in the location bar of your web browser. If you do not know the IP address of the access point,
please refer to the software or manual that came with the access point in order to determine
the IP address. After successfully logging in, you will see a page similar to the following:

Make a note of the “SSID” (in this case “wireless”), this you will need to enter into the “SSID”
field in SoundBridge’s wireless setup.

54

As you can see in the next illustration, “Wireless Security” is enabled. Click on the “Edit Security
Settings” button to access the WEP setup page:

This Linksys access point allows you to easily view the keys. The default key is key number 1, so
make a note of the value of the “Key 1” field (“49774B692D” in this case). This is the value you
will enter into SoundBridge’s wireless setup’s “Password” field. You now have the information
necessary to configure your SoundBridge to connect to your network. You may close your web
browser.

55

Netgear WG602
The Netgear WG602 is an 802.11g Wireless Access Point. Its configuration can be accessed
with a web browser. First, open a web browser and connect to the access point by entering
the access point’s IP address in the location bar of your web browser. If you do not know the IP
address of the access point, please refer to the software or manual that came with the access
point in order to determine the IP address. After successfully logging in, you will see a page
similar to the following:

56

The value of “Wireless Network Name (SSID)” is the SSID that you will enter into the
SoundBridge’s wireless setup. Next, click on “Security Settings” on the left side to access the
WEP settings:

57

If “WEP” is set to “Disable,” then you do not need to enter a password to access your wireless
network. If “WEP” is set to “Enable,” you will need to obtain the hexadecimal key for your
network. Netgear unfortunately, does not allow you to view the current passphrase or
keys. However, if you re-enter the known passphrase and press “Generate Keys,” then it will
regenerate the keys as before and allow you to view the keys:

Make a note of the value of the key with the active radio button (the default key, in this case
“Key 1”: “562E7FF0A0”). This is the password that you will need to enter into your SoundBridge’s
wireless setup “Password” field. You now have the information necessary to set up your wireless
network from your SoundBridge. You may close your web browser.
