Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Incidentally, Internet radio won't work either.
Same problem here even when connected to a Mac via latest Airport router. If it is going to work properly with anything it should with that. When this problem happens it even names the song playing, shows it on the TV, but no sound. Then it just randomly decides to start working again. Also when this happens, the apps on the iPhone and iPad can't find the receiver. This is the whole reason I bought this receiver, and it simply doesn't work properly. Also sometimes when I press HMG on the remote, it starts HMG, then switches to Internet Radio for no reason.
Airplay is working at the moment. An hour ago it wasn't. Nothing changed. Sometimes it will just stop working mid-song, still show the song as playing, but not output sound. I've read elsewhere that one can have your router give the AVR a static IP address. No idea how to do this, and not sure if it would solve the problem. I'm guessing a firmware update would solve this problem.
