This is what Pioneer said:
Thanks for writing. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with Pandora on your Pioneer receiver.
We have been actively working with the manufacturer on a fix that can be pushed out to your device.
Please check for a firmware update on your device, as that is how the issue will be resolved. If an update is available, try loading Pandora again once the update is complete.
If you do not yet have an update available from the settings of your receiver, we recommend reaching out to Pioneer directly for more information.
Hope this helps.
So no Pandora for who knows how long, since my experience with Pioneer since I bought my 1222 has been "they don't care". BUT I did go looking for Internet Radio Stations and found some great ones including Secret Agent Radio that I used to listen to back at the turn of the century and thought it had gone away. Now have a pretty nice selection set up. Now watch that go away . . .
This receiver needs an update since Pandora changed the way they format their music through the receiver.
We are still working on when an update will be released for this receiver.
The information communicated from Pioneer that you’ve shared with me sounds in-line with the situation. We’ve been actively working with Pioneer on a fix that can be pushed out to your device.I hope that Pandora has imposed upon Pioneer that there is "concern" about this? That just might get results and soon. Fingers crossed.
Apologies for the inconvenience. We greatly appreciate your patience!

Pandora has changed their format to play audio through the receiver. Since Pandora directly changed their format this is not an issue with Pioneer electronics. This receiver will not be getting any firmware update to upgrade to play Pandora through this receiver. The only option is to trade your receiver in for a refurbished one at a discounted price.
