While I love the sound quality that I have achieved via "networked audio" I do not care for having to work through what seems like constant network issues between components.
You just have to love to hate the replies that you get from customer support;
Its not my hardware its their software.
Its not my software its their hardware.
From both, it must be your network.
Finally, the universal fix all, just re-boot it!
