Continued from here:
I'm led to believe that when the data stream for Internet radio is weak it will revert/ try and find the nearest less data required station, ie trying to buffer
If the internet station is set as a favourite on the amp, the amp will go back to main home screen when the connection bite stream is low, if you do not have the amp connected to a monitor/screen you will not see this happen very clearly via the ampdidplay, it is thou more visible on the iPad/tvusing the denon app.
Some stations on my amp will take a while to log on and then say unable to play.
If you find the internet radio stations via the amp are physically cutting out then try these things resetting your router
Switching or select different port on back if router, complete a hard reset of the router.
Install or replace filter on main telephone line,
Switch of other devices using the router wifi like laptop, tablets, phones,
Replace telephone lead between router and phone socket.
Try to limit phone extension leads being used. The router should always get connected to the 1st incoming socket into the building
Complete a broadband speed check

Considering getting another broadband line, and then just leaving the denon on the original conection, with very little else, so it shouldn't be so flaky. We get an 11mbps connection via broadband speed check.. but it is used by 3 computers, and the Denon. Even worse, I don't think it's a constant 11mbps, it seems to go down a hell of a lot.. very unreliable. Hmm.!
11 Mbps is to low the amp requires a recommended 128mbps , this is were your problem lies. The Internet radio on the amp will not run on that low Mbps
Lancelot said:11Mbps is tons for internet radio.
Most stations are 128Kbps or less. CD is only 320kbps.
Sorry there must be a miscommunication on my part, i'm talking about the broadband line speed, we get a connection of 11mb/s on the broadband speed checks. That should be more than enough... 128mb/s is not feasible.. fibre optic only goes up to 56mb/s? You can't need a T1 connection for running internet radio stably! It's wired directly in to the router. But that info is very useful that you've pasted, thanks.. will look at it more closely tomorrow.. worth looking at. Ordered another broadband line today, so can just leave the denon on it's own broadband line.. that's gotta sort it out. Really just need it to be reliable. Anyway, thanks for taking the time to respond.. you're a legend on this thread by the looks of it

Glad you have got it sorted,
Must admit we've had a business line put in for my wife business telephone line, it is bt and bt router, we then have a sky router and home telephone line, there is a massive difference in speed and availability between the two lines. 9meg on the bt and
2.1meg on the sky.
Has anyone actually tried that? The manual seems to know about the standard but nothing in the Network Setup section so I believe it isn't implemented. Wiring TV/receiver/player/PC is hell. Depressing.
Has anyone tried what?
The ethernet channel aspect of HDMI 1.4 is not mandatory and no AV manufacturer has implemented it.
Is it possible to change the tv programs with the 2113 remote control?
I have a new Sony BDP-S790 player and can't get it to send sound in bitstream so I can get DTS-HD, I have everything setup on the BD player correctly as per info from the BDP-S790 thread, but still no joy, I their something I need to do on the AVR as I've noticed that the unit is displaying everything in PLII regardless, for e.g my sky cable box sends stereo through the HDMI but the AVR displays PLII
Is their a factory reset on the AVR and I will start again or is their something simple I have done wrong.
Any help appreciated
