Ask a Networking Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi Please reply to expert when replying
Have you managed to get the unit working again yet ?
Give me some help, not just a question!!!!
The reason I asked the question was that it was not clear what your problem is now, as the first question was is there a way to reset to factory defaults or similar to sort out lack of internet radio, and under "already tried" section, you asked is there a way to play itunes over wifi to the pioneer, so I just wanted to clarify the situation before offering advice.
Anyway you can play itunes over the unit using Airplay, you must be using itunes 10.1 or later,
But you seem to have lost the basic functionality of internet radio, which suggests that you have lost connection to the internet, so you need to check your network connection settings, if all looks okay try going through the setup again.
If this does not work please advise on weather or not your router uses DHCP, and confirm that you are connecting via wifi or via a network cable.?
Best Regards Phil
See original question, I was trying to link to my BT hub to get my ITunes to play from my Mac via the hub to the Pioneer unit as the manual seems to suggest that is possible. After entering the various codes for the hub, I now can't play internet radio or link to my mac. That is why I asked if there was a factory default setting to wipe out any changes I made which do not seem to work! If not how do I get it working again as it was??
this should get it internet radio working again, you can then try to setup airplay again.
Tried the reset as suggested, still no connection, still have a red x on top right of screen! Did go in before reset to make sure dhcp was on as it asks you to turn it off when entering wireless IP addresses etc; The reset hasn't worked it seems.
I seem to have solved the problem by guesswork, I looked the system info and saw WPS info stated push button interface off, so reset WPS on the BT infinity hub and connection was remade! Hoorah, now have internet radio but not sure how to use wireless connection for ITunes so may just use a 3.5mm jack lead to Aux instead. Those wireless connect instructions in the manual just weren't clear!
Thanks so far but there is no icon in my iTunes player. Using latest OS and iTunes software. Looked at many Apple advice blogs and lots of other help stuff relating to missing icon. No use though, going into mini player still showed no icon. How can I get this icon to appear or activate Airplay??? Very frustrating, Apple help just a circular journey!
Just the one BT infinity hub and router, my Mac connects wirelessly to it and so does the Pioneer. Problem is no icon on the iTunes player even when trying the mini player option, don't recall ever seeing it, how can I get it? Apple help circular and not actually helpful.
Checked bt infinity hub settings, seem okay, still no icon in iTunes (yes I know what it looks like, it appears on the Pioneer screen) Please talk me through IPv6 disable, have seen blogs that this may work!
iTunes is 11.1.5(5) 64bit and Mac OS is 10.9.2 Mavericks.
Tried the help but only gave solutions for Mac OSX 10.5, 6, 7 and 8, tried them but don't work for OSX 10.9! No IPv6 off option available.
Hi, tried your suggestion, got to set ipv6 to link local only, still no icon in iTunes, what now , help?
Hi, set ipv6 to local link only, still no icon on iTunes player, what do I do, help?
Haven't tried that but as it is a wireless network and the icon appears on the Pioneer why would an ethernet cable change anything?
Sorry for the delay, but been busy! However, yesterday I connected the Mac to the Pioneer aux in via a 3.5 jack cable and went to play some music, noticed the symbol had appeared in the iTunes player! Then removed cable, used the icon to select the Pioneer and music played from the Pioneer, hooray. Also when I turned the Pioneer off, the icon disappeared from iTunes player and reappeared when I turned the Pioneer back on. Okay system works but I can not explain these circumstances! Thanks for your help by the way but it seems to have worked by trial and error and sheer luck!!
