Pandora log in problem - Page 2

post #31 of 98
Thanks for pointing that out.
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.rolleyes.gif

Pandora works fine on my onkyo 809. Perhaps onkyo units ate not affected by this issue seeing how I am at least the second onkyo owner to chime in on this thread.

Same issue with my Pioneer VSX-1022. It was working up until a few days ago. I pray they post a firmware update to fix this soon. I love me some Pandora!

^^
Note that if you have a smart phone that you can connect to the AVR, you can use the Pandora app to stream Pandora to your phone. Another option would of course be using a PC connected to the AVR.

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.

I just got off the phone with Pioneer Tech support. They indicated that the FCC required Pandora to make changes to the way it allows their content to stream, which in turn caused all of us the headache. I am using a Pioneer VSX-60. Pioneer indicated a firmware update should resolve this issue within the next 30 days.
As others have indicated, I can use Internet radio, and also can run the Pandora app on my Ipad and simply plug it in to the front of the receiver.

Anyway, glad to hear it’s not an issue with the receiver!

A response to an email i sent to pandora:

"Thanks for writing in and sorry for this trouble. We are aware of this issue and we are working with the manufacturers to resolve the issue as soon as possible- should be shortly!

Thank you for your patience in the meantime, we really appreciate"

It's very unlikely the FCC had anything to do with this. According to the FCC's own website, "the FCC does not regulate Internet content or applications". The only FCC regulations regarding the Internet are about net neutrality, and they're probably not even legal as they've been struck down once already.

If the US government was involved with this at all it was more likely the FTC trying to enforce privacy rules.

Well, Im just going on what the Pioneer guy told me. Anyhoo.. Guess Ill wait on the Firmware update. -Cheers

Firmware updated and I am listening to Pandora right now. The only thing that looks wrong is that it says 128kbps when it should be 192 since I have a paid subscription.

Using any brand of AVR, you'll be limited to 128kpbs regardless of whether you have a Pandora One account or a free account. To get 192kpbs, you need to either connect a laptop or stream using Airplay to the AVR.
