Is the Entre' dead? Simple question. It's March 2012 and I'm seeing posts that are a few years old. When I mean "dead" I'm referring to Internet connectivity. When I go through the registering process I get to the step before ping and then a red x. It took a few times to get my static ip set up. So I was surprised when I did. I'm using a Linksys adapter connected to my router.
Briefly, my KR-V9030 developed a power supply hum (needs caps, etc) and I ran across a VR-5900 with an entre thrown in that functionally seems to work fine. The VR does what I need it to do. I only need analog inputs and am running a digital in from a Tascam US800 to stream from my pc.
I don't really need the entre but it's was nice addition to the receiver, so what the heck?
It's running 188.8.131.52. Are there any file edits to (I have kenwood.zip and kenwood120.zip) to make a new drive be able to conect to a server? And what server, if any, is running? Would it be possible to FTP into the entre' and edit files to make it connect properly? Also as klunky as I've heard Media Manager is, for the life of me I cannot find a copy to download anyplace from a site that works. Any help and tips on this?
I'm only wondering if the entre' is a boat anchor and if I'm wasting time trying to get it fully working as it was designed to. I've searched all over the web and it seems AV is really the only place for most recent (2010) info.
Any entre' aficionados out there still who could help? Does anyone still have one that's still able to get web info and connectivity? What about registering the unit (if still possible)? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated and would help to update this thread.
.....or should I just go get some beer, drink lots of it, and stand in front of a fan? so's to speak!
