NR555 - Very Good but Issues with Streaming Services
Enjoying the new NR555. I have not had a chance to do critical listening but it is mainly for home theater and TV watching so it will do. The setup was easy and intuitive. The firmware updated to the latest. The remote control is not overbuilt, only needed functions. The Android App adds alternate way to get at the controls. ARC is working well with my Panasonic GT50 TV, FIOS Service, and Google Cast. The only area where I am seeing problems, likely bugs or undeveloped features (not sure how they can put it out like this), are the Internet Apps:
TuneIn Radio - some of the stations stream fine. When hitting the Info button, I see the signals are coded MP3 or AAC. These include USA Today, NFL on TuneIn, various news stations. However, some of my favorite stations don't come in at all and the message 'Play Error, Cannot Play' shows up when I am tuning to them. These streams include: 91.7 Michigan Radio, 660 WFAN Sport Radio, 93.7 WEEI, 98.5 The Sports Hub.
Spotify - the app comes up but no input works or allows you to log in to engage the app.
Pandora - seems to work well
I have to guess the receiver is not coding some of the streams. I have to admit, that is troubling since the Onkyo brochure for it says it can decode darn near everything at any rate.
Is anyone else having these problems with TuneIn and Spotify?
