A work around is to change inputs from the Network, change back, quickly unplug the cord and plug it back in.
Another is to enable Network control, however, this approach leaves the Receiver on all the time using a lot of power.

hey richb, i own the 5507 and about a month ago i had the "cannot play" error from pandora. it turned the pre-amp on & off several times same issue but the next morning i turned it on and since then music plays fine from pandora. i am under the impression this was a pandora problem. i never had it before and haven't had it since and i listen to pandora all the time.
of course i'm not saying those folks aren't having a problem with their units but perhaps, some of the time they are experiencing a problem that's on pandora's end. wonder if you have that issue if you are using the pay service from pandora, we are getting the low-rez freebee!, just saying...
oh yeah, i love my 5507 and won't be buying the 5508 and that's not a knock at it either. i would love the option for heights & widths at the same time but it's not that important to me. as for 3D, i will wait for Oppo to come out with a 3D blu player which i suspect will have 2 HDMI's one for 3d + audio and one for just audio so we can still get our HD audio from one and direct to the 3D-HDTV with the other and I'm good to go! so far, the 5507 has never given me one problem and in all this time only one no connect to pandora, i'm not looking back. mind you for folks looking to buy a pre-pro, yeah, i would tell them get the 5508 and be done with it. 5507 or 5508, Onkyo looks to have a couple of good products on their hands. very happy, very happy for 6+ months!
