I am wondering if anybody else has had similar out-of-the box experience or if I have
a lemon or damage from shipping. I have never had a problem with any equipment
I bought online before over the last 25 years.
1) Twice during setup, I did not get sound from the Front-Left & center channel when
I wired up the speakers (1st time in a test room...and then, 2nd time in the TV room).
With E400 not plugged in, I wired up 4 sprks fronts and surrounds, (no center yet)
BR, & CableTV...located the unit in a rack, and then plugged AC. To my disappointment,
no Front Left channel both times (and the Center channel in the initial test room setup).
I did a proc reboot and it restored the F-L channel each time. Is there something
about the sequence in wiring each spkr that must be followed? I did it without following
the on-screen 'easy setup guide' steps.
2) I'm using a zyxel 500mbs powerline adapters for ethernet. I get all
green lights which means >40mbs. But once I turn on the TV & E400 sharing
a UPS and the UPS sharing the wall outlet with the powerline adapter, my speed
drops to 10-40mbs. Good enough for Airplay from ipad for ipod/spotify/pandora playback
and Denon remote app..
When I tried to set up a few internet-radio stations,...it went into some kind of
internet-searching loop (literally...rotating circle) and locked itself up. Only thing I could do,
was to unplug the AC cord. Had lunch. Then plug AC cord back, and proceeded to do the
internet radio setup.
Any opinions if MOCA or a wfi bridge would be better than powerline?
I was researching ActionTec moca 1.0 adapters (FIOS). I saw June oem news
that moca 2.0 adapters will be coming out in 2H13. Worth the wait for 2.0?
Anyone have good experience using AC Wifi Bridge and Router yet? Brands?
Native Spotify and Pandora setup smoothly...with excellent sound quality
and no buffering.
Tested a USB drive with MP3s, Blu-ray, E400-to-iPod music & TV-Audio...these
functions worked fine.
I didn't test the iPod Touch-USB setup...figured I would not use it over Airplay for music.
(I have Apple TV on another TV for video and pics on a big screen).
I did not test DVD, media server function, Favorites, and do any video tuning yet...
saving for some play time for next weekend.
