as everyone is aware, iphone is not a supported device with this avr. in order to listen to pandora from iphone (3g) i have to use connection cable to bottom of iphone; composite (red/white) to front a/v, to play on zone 2 (outside pool speakers). i blame apple (bastards) for this.
i have neglected to update my 3g to the newest rev4 software but did so this weekend. today, i though what the heck; try again through front usb connection. much to my surprise the iphone displayed message that the device might reduce the cell signal strength, etc, etc. the 1018 displayed "no music track found" but began playing pandora.....for about 15 seconds
then cut off and displayed 'loading" and began playing again with displayed "no music track found". previous to the rev4 update the 1018 would only display "unsupported device" (?) or "no device".
obviously the new function is no better...in fact it is worse because it "tries" to work. why the heck these companies can't provide backwards compatibility is beyond my comprehension. suffice it to say...they su*#.
