Sherwood Netboxx (R-904N) Freezing on VuNow Feature

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello,

My Netboxx is freezing on the following screen.



Has anyone else experienced this while using their receiver?

Does anyone have any suggestions? I do not use this feature often, but when I do, it does come in handy

How is this going for you? These are Woot today for $270, wondering if its worth it?

I am still trying to figure out what to do.

I bought one of the WOOT ones and it's doing the same dang thing! I contacted Sherwood, and they sent me the "reset instructions" and said if that didn't work, send it back to vendor or in for repair. These must be real junk (the vunow card) too bad too, it looks like a really nice amp.

Good luck with that..

Sherwood raked me over the coals.

Raked you over the coals because their unit is junk and doesn't work??!!

What did they tell you? Mine's going back to WOOT.

Yes, raked me over the coals. If you spent money multiple times to get this fixed and it is still not fixed, wouldn't you feel that way?

I paid shipping multiple times to get mine repaired and it is still not fixed. I believe that my only option may be to throw in the towel unless enough people report this problem and Sherwood does the right thing.

If you have an Amazon account, you should leave that in a review because people need to know about this problem. Hopefully Sherwood monitors that. They seem to be under the impression that I am the only one having this problem.

This is not right.

Keep up negative reviews coming... If the price drops below $150, I'd buy second unit.

If you're simply looking to flush that money down the toilet -- which is probably what will happen if you buy one of these things -- then you can send it to me instead. Help pay for Christmas presents...

Holy Cow, no kidding. I was lucky, at least Woot sent me a pre paid FEDEX label.
Another thing, they don't make it really clear until you get out the book that the multimedia features for the most part require you to run something on a PC, well what if you have a Mac? Oops! and that the room two feature won't work if you happen to want to use the surround sound rear speakers..
It looks like a nice amp even with some shortfalls. I can't even say what it sounds like, because i never hooked it up to speakers. I bought this as a gift for my mother in law and set out to set it up for her, that's when I discovered the Vunow board must be shot as it never leaves the boot screen. But seeing all the rigamarole to run netflix or Pandora, maybe use the amp and a Roku box and forget about the Vunow. I do really like the small form factor but indeed, it's still not getting what I paid for I guess.

I *used* it with Windows and my Linux machine..

It just uses DLNA.


BTW, does yours ever go through a cycle and reboot over and over?

This is what mine would do before the total failure.
