no, the Receiver button has NOTHING to do with the setup menu. if you can't figure out that the HOME MENU & TOOLS buttons which are clearly marked on your remote and clearly described in the manual are the menu buttons...what can I say? other than good luck figuring out how to use the receiver
The Receiver button allows the remote to do control various functions. Take the time to read the manual.
page 9 has the remote diagram and CLEAR description that Home Menu goes to setup with a link to page 46 for more info. I don't own your specific model but downloaded the manual & found the page numbers in about 30 seconds. It's not that hard...
Actually I've been reading the manual cover to cover for days. I have to say that when a manual on page 39 references something on page 41 it could use some refinement. Coupled that with following the manual to the letter and not seeing the proscribed output on the unit's display, is giving me pause.
That said, I suddenly lost network connectivity a few hours ago and as always my remote button pushing doesn't correspond to the manual (or at least my interpretation of the manual). I have to say this is extremely frustrating. I don't/can't have a tv monitor connected to this unit. I tried a new TV yesterday but still no joy. Using the remote alone, I can't get to the network setup (NetRadio, HomeMenu leads to nothing on the unit's display). Of course, the Pioneer folks are off today. So much for music at tonight's New Year's Eve gathering. I reset the internet switch, tried the former DHCP address, but no luck in locating the unit on the network. I am tempted to flash the firmware again but really, it shouldn't behave this way. When I first hit the NetRadio/HomeMenu buttons "Cant Sel" appeared on the screen. Now nothing. Even the iOS Control AV app can't locate the unit.
1. Haven't been able to hear any music from the CD Input (hooked up to the Logitech Media Server via Duet)
2. Per manual, Speaker B doesn't drive subwoofer (which limits the usefulness of my speaker switch)
3. Network radio ID is allusive. Can't bring it up on the unit.
4. Won't output to my HDTV (which works perfectly with my Yamaha unit) nor a new Vizio TV
I am beginning to lose confidence in the robustness of the unit.
UPDATE: I tried setting the unit to a static IP below my DHCP range on the cable modem router. I then connected and reconnected the ethernet cable. Finally I turned the power off to the receiver by unplugging it. I plugged it back in. I now have internet access back, although I am not sure which operation accomplished that. My cable modem shows the Pioneer at the new address although it shows it as "DHCP" with an adress below where my DHCP addresses start (at the address I chose and assigned the MAC Address to). Curious.Edited by anjenaire - 12/31/12 at 12:08pm
