) I am able to access and control it like I can with the 1913 and 3313. Entering /Setup_index.asp takes me to the setup page there's even the save/load buttons, but it errors out when I tried to save the config.
First, thanks for posting, great find! This is one of two things compared to AVR-1713 that I was regretting. But as they say, "Close, but no cigar!". The night I first saw this, I tried "Save" from my iPad browser, I got no error, but the file save dialog never came up. Today, on my Linux box, I did get to save the config.dat file. I then tried to load it, saw the front panel go to "Loading" with the red LED lit, but it never completed, and the browser errored out with "not completed". I looked in config.dat, and it was all nulls, 340K worth. I tried again to save, and it failed. Turned off the receiver, tried again, and again it saved the file, but still zeroes.
EDIT: SUCCESS!!!! I used wireshark to watch the packet transfers. It appears that even after the file save dialog shows up on the browser, the 1613 is still sending file contents to the browser. Solution: wait for a while after the dialog opens, then save the file. On my system, it took almost 1 minute 40 secs for the file save dialog to show, then packets kept flowing for another 30-35s. With this config file, loading works, and browser says:
AV AMP is restarted automatically.
I next want to try a network and micro reset , then load a saved config, and see if indeed my changes show up. But, I have ordered a tripod and mic-adapter from Amazon, will wait till those arrive, just in case I am forced to go through another Audyssey calibration.
In any case, big thank you to wowubbzy!
