I have been reading the few problems some have had with the TX-NR609 connecting to the Web. I am also having a problem trying to get my unit to connect to the Web. This is the second unit I have recieved. Send first one back with same problem. What happens is, I have it connected with an Ethernet cable, unit does show an IP address, gateway and all info is correct. When it tries to initialize, it scrolls across the Display "now initializing", the net light goes steady, then after a few scrolls, the display just freezes and the net light starts to flash. Onkyo support has not been of much help, just says that shouldn't happen. Very strange that this same condition should happen on two units. I don't believe it's a Router problem, as I have a Boatload of stuff working on my Net (Sonos, Slingbox, several IP cameras and Home Automation) and all work fine. I can take this cable that fails on the Onkyo, and plug it into something else and works fine. Hopefully someone out there may have some ideas.
