Just getting back here:
My AV8802A failed to connect to my network. First time in two or three years of operation.
[A] I attempted a network reset, only to experience the same bahavior (ie. display shows "empty" when ONLINE MUSIC is enabled).
[B] The next component in the chain is the NetGear Network Powerline Adapter unit, plugged into the adjacent wall AC outlet
(actually there is a NetGear Switch unit between the AV8802A and the Powerline Adapter unit). Anyway, so I bounced the powerline adapter unit (un-plugged for 30 seconds, then plugged back in). The AV8802A is now re-connected to my network. I can play digital music files from my network drives, etc.,...
AC power wiring is not the best in my older home. And I've been forced to use network powerline adapters to extend network access throughout house, not the best solution- but physically easier than running CAT6 cable. Although I hope to have electrician install CAT6 cable (in ceiling) in the near future.
My TiVo system is also relying on powerline adapter connections for network access (very troublesome, experience video "studdering" and drop-outs periodically but I deal with it).
Anyway, thanks for all the responses/help
