as to HDMI 2, no it's not limited to 720p. try checking your video converter settings to see what resolution it's set at. even better, just turn it off for the HDMI sources you are trying to send to both outputs. depending on how good your Blu-ray player is, the optimum setup for many people for Blu-ray is to let the player handle the video processing/scaling chores or the TV, not the receiver. if this is a cable box, then the receiver's processor may
be better than what's in the cable box.
to your Pandora & network problems, the 1st thing to do is...whatever change you made in the receiver before it stopped connecting, change it back to what it was originally. you didn't mention you did that, but before turning things off & on, updating FW, that should have been the very 1st thing to do. if it worked, then u made a change & it stopped working, troubleshooting 101 says go back to what worked
if you already did this or forgot the original setting, then you really have no choice but to do these....
you check the FW version in the receiver to make sure the update went OK and you really do have the version you installed. do you get music from Pandora on your PC? if yes, that isolates it to the receiver. plus, Pioneer is very specific & clear in the FW update instructions that you may need to reset the Pandora setup, that the update will wipe-out your existing Pandora profile, etc. if you didn't do that, then that may be part of your problem. if you did do that then...
do the full factory reset as outlined in the manual which will restore everything to default settings. that means you'll have to re-do MCACC, input assignments, network settings, everything. this will wipe out network settings so you'll have a clean slate. before investing any time on MCACC though, I would try all your network settings, reset Pandora & see if you have connectivity, IP addresses, etc. reboot your router, and you may want to reboot cable modem so that you get a new IP address from your provider.
if still problems, I have to ask, do you have a conventional cable modem & separate router or do you have one of the combination modem-router gateways? U-verse, some Comcast areas among others are sending out combo all-in-one devices that are causing problems with some receivers & networked AV gear, not only Pioneer but also Denon & I think Marantz. Cisco, Motorola are some makes but there may be others. if you do have one of the combo gateways, I'd try a conventional router from Netgear, Linksys, DLink etc, plug it into the gateway or call your cable co & insist on a conventional separate modem & get your own router.
and if a reset & added step don't help, you definitely should call Pioneer to report the problem, just in case you have to send to a service center for warranty repair. but if you haven't had it too long, ask your dealer to swap you for a new one. the store may be willing to do that & you won't have to deal with a repair. it's possible the network hardware or your update hosed it, but if it worked OK before you made that change, then it stopped working, something tells me its very possibly a setup problem of your own doing.
