The internet radio bugs, small as they be, the way the network component loses its mind when there is any kind of fault state and can't renogiation/renew dhcp leases, etc., could list more mind you, all are on Denon's hands. And yet we see NOTHING. I've heard nothing as well despite inquiries.
We could be looking at the bastard children as far as Denon is concerned.
Quite sad. If these were 300 dollar receivers ok, I might be able to get to the lack of activity. But these were and are not entry level models.
Shame on you Denon.
I have owned Arcam, Denon, Yamaha, Anthem, Pioneer, HK and most likely a few others. Denon is one of the best in regards to fixing issues via firmware, I must say.
There is a point where the units are so old they will most likely not be supported anymore. The 3808 is most likely getting close to that point.
FYI, i had one and loved it. I never used the internet crap and it was that: crap. Hardware did not have the processing power/fluid enough input device to do it correctly. I always preferred my squeezebox to it.
I highly suggest a stand alone unit for that type of use(like a squeezebox). They are built specifically for it.
