It works, but not completely. Things are missing. Network setup is incorrect and at "network setup" nothing happens. (I have a wired network.) In the info screen it shows DHCP, and that is not correct. I can't disable DHCP, and I can't enter the network info such as IP of the unit, IP of the server.
In the Audyssey section there are no choices for Audyssey or Audyssey Flat. They are just gone.
Speaker setup is not what Audyssey set it to. All distances are 12 feet and that't not correct for any of them. Crossover and speakers are not what they were.
The inputs are all correct and function normally aside from the fact that there is no Audyssey at work.
I tried a small button reset and a cpu reset. No help.
I'm hoping maybe a firmware update/refresh could let my unit cough up this hairball, but since I can't connect to a network, I can't download an upgrade.
I'm in the US and have the Audyssey upgrades and checking the firmware on the unit shows it to be correct with the latest shown in the Wiki with main ver A2.04, etc.
I'm thinking this is not going to be fixable.
I don't know if FW is available as a download, have never seen it.
However, before you give up on the networking try the following. If you were using a fixed IP address for the AVR but it won't come off of DHCP, you can go into your router and set a DHCP reservation for the fixed address. You need to know the MAC layer address of the AVR (on back I think) and this gets associated with the reserved IP address. This way you don't have to be able to set the network parameter in the AVR.
Of course if networking isn't working, well. As a quick and dirty check, the Ethernet port lights should have one on steady and another blinking at odd intervals for any traffic on your network. If the basic hardware is working and the unit will accept a DHCP assignment of the reserved IP address, then you should be able to ping it from any PC on the network.
If that does work, do you have a saved configuration set that could be reloaded? I'd at least try that.
