I probably messed the file up myself because the laptop said the download was complete but the Denon still hadn't restarted in what seemed like forever so I hit standby.
I was antsy to watch some football.
same here with the pioneer VSX-53 (and WD live).
i guess this goes to the deeper question of who is obligated (legally and otherwise..) to keep fixing/patching legacy devices every time pandora (or netflix or rhapsody etc) decides to change their protocol? my VSX-53 (2011 model) hasn't had a firmware update in over a year and i'll be surprised if they keep patching it and all their legacy receivers. ditto for my 3 year old WD live.
i'd put the onus back on pandora.. if they are going to sell/license their software on 1000's of different devices, they better get their network protocol SOLID before doing so.
i'm sure there's some fine print/legalese on our receivers that give them (pioneer in my case) a 'get out of jail free card' when/if various internet services change their protocols.
brings up lots of similar questions.. my receiver has a VERY cool iOS app that controls it (AVNavigator) .. do you think they are going to keep patching it over the years as Apple upgrades iOS 2x/year? at some point my app won't work.. and i'm sure that will be long before the useful life of the receiver.
