My PC runs Winows XP Service pack 3 and Media player 11 as it was required from Denon.
It happens some of the songs I am trying to play to block the receiver. On the display shows name of the song + 0:00 like minutes and seconds and I can't move from there even if I switch to a different input source or trying to go back in the menus or even switching off the receiver. The only one thing to works is to change the way receiver gets IP address from DHCP on to off or opposite and then I can access net/ usb feature as normal.
I do reset the microprocessor and have one of the latest firmware versions. Always have the same problem with certain albums. Help will be much appreciated resolving this irritating issue.
Thanks in advance.
I would like to share resolved problem of Denon 3808 blocking after attempt to play a certain albums and songs from my relatively large music library, which was organized by WMP11 (officially Denon recommended) with same size artwork and same files format. My big thanks to CalgaryCowboy, who gave me the idea to switch to Media monkey and remove the artwork from the files.
Still I needed some times to set the MM right. It has great tag editing features and also hooks DLNA service flawlessly.
First when adding the library to MM, you have to go to tools\\options\\library and unchecked scan file directory for artwork. This will save your time to manually delete all the artwork located in the album folders which is actually hidden (to see hidden files for windows XP SP3- in windows explorer have to go to tools/folders option and then change to show hidden folder and after hit the apply button you can see the art work files WMP created and actually the reason for all the mess).
After that you can transfer files into your MM. After the transfer you still have the artwork for every single song embedded in the tag I guess. You can easily remove that by hitting the right button over the picture and after choosing remove image to check the option remove image from all the tracks in the album. So there you go, no more image to give you trouble (even it stays in the original album folder as hidden artwork- no worry about this).
There is a tricky part in useful option otherwise. Under tab tools locate /auto-organize files. You have to be careful to choose from different strings of renaming the files and saving options (first time I ended with songs listed alphabetically in the album instead by original order).
I am still working on the issue because of the size of my library, but for now every single album and song plays perfect.
Hope this will help somebody with similar issues.
