The discovery of AVS Forums many years ago was solely instrumental in my RX-V3900 purchase.
The primary use of this receiver was to exploit the Network options with special emphasis on music streaming from my PC and distributing to additional zones.
It has been flawless with Windows XP and Windows 7. Unfortunately Windows 8 has presented an unwanted challenge to which I have not been able to overcome.
This has basic rendered the receiver useless at this point.
I am seeking the assistance of this community in overcoming this challenge and restore my network options to its former glory.
The RX-V3900 is hard wired to my network via CAT 5E cables.
As mentioned above, music streaming was flawless in Windows XP and Windows 7.
Windows 8 also streams fine, but it is almost impossible to use.
The PC contains my music collection spanning many years, many genres and totaling over 100,000 MP3 files sorted on the PC by folders.
With previous Operating Systems, I was able to navigate on the RX-V3900 Menu Interface using folders as organized on my PC.
I can navigate to specific folders and play specific files.
Since the addition of Windows 8, folders no longer exist.
All 100,000 plus music tracks are simply listed on the RX-V3900 in alphabetical and numerical order.
It a flat file list.
It is now impractical for me to navigate to a music file beginning with the letter "S" (for example) as I would have to scroll through almost the entire list alphabetically.
I would be eternally grateful if it were possible to evoke a solution that would return my folder list.
The RX-V3900 is running the latest firmware 1.21.
