Lately I noticed a 1 to 2 minute silence for internet music every so often. Then streaming to the NAS would stop and I would have to navigate back to the playlist and start again. This could occur once every 2 hours or four times per hour.
Finally it occurred while I was watching the on screen GUI. It was a reboot of the NET/USB board, with the exact console messages that occur when the server is rebooted and it's set to the NET/USB source (Connecting ... / Assigning IP address ... etc). A ping diagnostic showed no connectivity during the 2 minutes for the board to connect.
First, is a microprocessor reset necessary? What else could remedy this problem?
Also, I looked at all the config files saved over the years. All had 130 bytes, with only NUL symbols. After a few hours of tries, I still had a 340 byte file, but it had information in it as well. Given this, can I count on restoring all settings?
Any advice appreciated.
By the way, I bricked 3 3310 CI units during upgrades until Denon took pity and gave me this, so I've very reluctant to reset or upgrade.
Here's an update. Questions follow.
About a month ago, I did a network reset and rebuilt the settings on the unit. Sources were renamed and I ran the Audessey again.
Odd things started to occur. Video would be lost for a fraction of a second twice an hour on the Roku source. Normally this is rock solid. Music on a playlist from a NAS would end mid song, yet show no indication on the console that anything was wrong. The Denon continues to drop internet radio and the network connection for about two minutes, then resets. Finally, yesterday there was no sound from the DVR channel. I looked and the Denon had lost all the settings for Audessey, Custom Source names, and Optical sources.
Here are some questions:
1. Is there any way to limit this losing of its mind? There's good power filtering.
2. Would another network reset help?
3. Finally, can somebody provides tips to restore from a saved file. Specifically,
Should the units zones be in standby or powered on?
Should the unit be in a source other than NET/USB?
I feel like a mechanic in Cuba trying to get his antique car to last another year.
