The same problem occurs every time I bring the unit out of standby.
If the network cable is unplugged and then the unit is brought out of standby, these items are also grayed out, but they ungray in about 30 seconds to a minute. They never seem to become enabled if the network is plugged in.
Maybe it's related to cable? I'm using a rather old and long length of Cat5. If I unplug it until things ungray, then I can use internet radio on the network fine. But putting the unit to sleep breaks all that again. Seems like a startup bug to me. I'll have to try some Cat6 when I get a hold of a length long enough for this run.
Exact the problem !
You encouter the same bug and it seems its a startup bug out of standby.
Pulling the cable or leaving the receiver with Network Control
active is the only way to get it to connect.
I tried 4 different UTP cables, CAT5 CAT5e CAT6 and a cable without any numbers, but no luck.
Hope you can find a working solution, but dont hope to much.......
And if i am not mistaken when you have no network control active
, the unit will put a internet radiostation on stop when you select an other source, and then when you go back to NET/USB it will stay on "connecting" for ever and ever.
Please mail this to Onkyo support, i have a Integra 70.2 (3008 is the same) but had a TX NR708 a few weeks ago and that unit had the same connecting problem.
Had a Marantz 7005 to test, and on the same cable and same router NO problems, it connected to vTuner everytime after standby without any problems......
