He is not happy that we are not within his specifications for DLNA configuration; although we are within DLNA's certification. We would like to obtain some more information on your issue to better assess the cause and explain better to you.
Please provide your information and description for further review to askOnkyo@us.onkyo.com and our technical representatives will research and gather information from our field svc centers to determine if this is a reoccurring issue that requires further evaluation.
Okay, thanks for the info. It's highly probable that the receiver has nothing whatsoever to do with the problem and I want to narrow down other things before troubling Onkyo support with it.
Verizon has sent me a new router to try out and see if the problem goes away so I'm going to give that a couple of months and see if it happens again. If it does, then I'll try turning off Onkyo or connecting my Apple TV via a cat 5 cable instead of wireless.
Overall, I'm indescribably happy with my receiver. The sound quality is phenomenal - it's a night+day difference from what I had before. The setup does a great job of getting the sound perfect ... the remote works for my cable box and TV ... everything is great. The few gripes I have:
1. As others have said, it's really very hot. I used to have a few other devices sitting right on top of my old receiver. That's no longer possible. I'm not saying it's anything bad with this receiver in particular - I recognize that's going to be the case with any modern receiver ... more processing going on = more hear.
2. You can't get to bluetooth with just the remote - you have to either use the mobile app or turn on your TV and navigate through the menu. It would be nice to be able to quickly play music without having to turn on the TV or use the app to get to the bluetooth mode, but I've gotten so I just use my Apple TV to play music anyway, so it doesn't matter.
3. I don't know if what I really want even exists, but what would be really, really cool is if I could have something show the video from zone 2. I love football and during football season, it would be nice to be able to have the little side TV show a second game ... I'd love to be able to have ESPN3 from my Apple TV show there and my cable box show on the main TV, or vice versa. (Again, I recognize that this may not exist anywhere.)
4. I wish it were about 2 inches less deep. It just barely doesn't fit in my cabinet. I did a bad job of measuring before I ordered I guess. I'm probably just going to take the doors off since it needs to breathe anyway.
