I setup streaming on the 4308, and I can provide a few preliminary answers to questions that I saw on various posts.
1.) There is no special Denon PC Client software required. The 4308 is a PlaysForSure device, and requires Windows Media Player 10 or 11. You first turn on Library Sharing in Windows Media Player. Then you should get a pop-up asking if you want to allow the 4308 to share your media. After you allow the 4308 access, you select the NET/USB source on the 4308 and your PC should appear in the list. When you select your PC from the GUI, you will see your Music, Picture and Playlist media categories. From there you can go into the category and see the files.
2.) The 4308 will stream Music and display Pictures. Unfortunately, no video streaming. Interestingly, the 4308 sees my NAS Server as a streaming source. When I select it from the GUI, and go into the categories, I can see all of my Music, Picture AND Video files. Unfortunately, when I try to stream any file from my NAS box, the Denon throws up a "Server Error". I'm still trying to determine all of the file types it supports but so far MP3, FLAC, WMA and JPG seem to work okay.
3.) The GUI does display cover art when streaming. I attached a few pictures of the GUI below.
4.) Internet Radio is supported, but I have not gotten that to work yet. It uses the vTuner service at www.radiodenon.com
. You log into the service using the MAC address of the 4308. It requires that the 4308 initiate the first connect with the service to download a list of available stations. From there you manage your choices through the radiodenon site. Problem is, the 4308 will not connect with the service. No errors or anything - it just goes out into limbo or a minute or so and then returns to the main menu on the GUI. I tried changing the DNS settings, and few other network things, but no luck. I'll probably fire up Ethereal in morning to try and see if its even trying to send something out.
Those are the only questions that I remember seeing. Let me know if you have any others.
... Sorry about the dark pictures, but flash doesn't work well against the plasma screen.
