For example I can select NET and press play and it will start streaming music from my PC (Windows 7 share) but it plays all the tracks in order and I can't get it to shuffle even if it is displaying the shuffle symbol on the oremote. It does work in regular receiver mode though. More than likely it's the onkyo's fault though because I can have both the main and zone 2 playing off of DLNA with shuffle enabled and it works but once I turn off the main zone than zone 2 faults back to playing the tracks in order again.
If there is a separate support forum I can also post over there.
I handle most complaint/issues through email or through oRemote's Facebook site. From what you describe, it sounds like it could be breakage on my part. I have 1.2.10 ready to submit, I'm just looking to polish a few things over the weekend. So I will look into this too.
Onkyo's Zone 2 support can get a little weird too. I'll get to the bottom of it.
I take that back. I just looked over the protocol sheet, and Onkyo indeed does not support repeat or random on Zone 2. Those functions are reserved for an iPod connected via USB cable.
The shuffle symbol appears because it is enabled, but only will work if an iPod is connected,
