    I am wondering if anyone else is experiencing playback issues with Pandora tonight? What it is doing for me is playing one song then the audio stops, the album cover screen saver keeps ponging about the screen but nothing happens. I have tried several of my stations and they all are doing it. To see if it was a Pandora issue I signed into it using the network function on my Denon AVR and it is playing fine on the receiver.

    First thing to try is resetting your DVR/Receiver using the red button behind the front panel access card door. See if that helps.

    Never RBR when you can do a Menu/Reset.

    As to Pandora Issues, I have a few . . . .


    Issue: Pandora Track Info - Instead of track info like time, artist or album, you get - Why this track? With a paragraph filled with Music Genome Project stuff of no importance.

    Issue: Pandora Screen Saver Start - I timed it. It only takes 30 seconds of inactivity to start it. In my opinion, that is way too short. Just try and comprehend one of those Music Genome Project stuff paragraphs in that short a period.

    Issue: Pandora Screen Saver Jerkiness - The jerkiness of the screen saver makes the font fuzzy and really unreadable. Either smooth out the motion or remove all text.

    Issue: No HR Functions while Running Pandora - Unlike HR2x, while running Pandora, all HMC functions are unreachable.

    Issue: Articles 'the' and 'an/a' are NOT ignored in Sorting - 'A', 'An' & 'The' should not be considered when sorting.

    Issue: Sorting by Given Name, instead of Surname - Sorting should never be done by the artist Given Name. Artist should only be sorted by their Surname.

    IMHO it's the D* hardware. I can experience the same dropout using my HR34 - switch over to same wifi network on Smart Samsung and dropouts go away.

    Ditto. It's so bad on my HR34 that I now listen to it only with my ROKU, which has none of these problems.

    I am having the same problem, it will play 1, 2, or 3 songs and then freeze on the album cover screen saver (still bouncing), I forward the song it was stuck on and it plays the next song or when it plays more than one song, which is rare, after about 5 or 6, I will get kicked off and back onto regular TV. This is frustrating, because on my previous D receiver it would play for hours with out a problem. Obviously there is a bug in the system for the Model: HR34-700 :scratch:

    Works flawlessly for me. I have 50+ MB Internet. That may help.

    Was there ever a fix for this? It's been happening to me for a couple of months

    I've seen one post of success with doing a double RBR. Sorry, but I'm unable to find it.
