Is anybody else having streaming issues with the hardwired connection? I've baffled Yamaha.
I have my RX-A740 hooked up via brand new CAT6 cabling to a Gb Switch. I have several other devices hardwired on my home network including multiple Samsung TVs, TIVO, multiple XBoxes, etc...
Everything works great, until I try to stream anything (Pandora, Airplay) - it plays for half a song if I'm lucky, then stops. It then proceeds to kill my network. I have to power down the 740, unplug the network cable, and reset my router (an Apple Airport Extreme Base Station) in order to get up and running. I am running at well over 100Mbps, but once I start streaming, it does down to under 3Mbps and no matter what I do, if I don't follow the above process I can barely get on my network.
I have updated the firmware and just did it manually via USB to no avail. I have hard set IP info outside of my DHCP range, again to no avail.
On a whim, I connected with the wireless setup and it works perfectly, streaming and everything. I would prefer hardwired since the wireless can take away from my overall wireless bandwidth, but the problems only seem to arise with the network card.
Anybody else have any problems like this? I am requesting an RA through Yamaha since the only other thing I can do is rule out the network card as being defective.
