Just installed the new receiver: Onkyo TX-NR709. It's dlna certified and connected to the internet. I should be able to access the music on my Windows 7 computer, but the dlna can only see the 'guest' user account, and when I try to connect, it says 'Authentication failed. You do not have permission to connect to this server.'
I have set up streaming of WMP 12 on the administrator account (it's not available on guest) and installed the receiver, which is visible on the network map. Any ideas?

Solved! It appears the Onkyo can only see non password user accounts. So made new user account and set up WMP media streaming, and Onkyo saw it and connected. listening now.

How does it sound?

I purchased one of these from the importer via trademe, fantastic deal at $999.

I won't be able to play with it though until mid Feb when we move into our new house.

Bought the same: a good deal. Installed yesterday, replaced Denon AVR2106 (on Trademe now).  Sounds pretty good, but only really getting to grips with it now: had to find a quiet time to do the Audessey setup. Listening to CDs on the pure direct mode (so many modes!) seems well balanced, clear soundstage, probably a bit more clarity in the treble than the Denon. I moved the centre speaker, and I don't think the new position is as good as before.
The connectivity is the big advantage for me: HDMI and networking.
The manual doesn't really make sense until you ge it going: but it's pretty comprehensive.

Do you have an iPad, iPod touch or iPhone? Just wondering what the onkyo remote app is like.

No iPhone for me, my son has an iPod; I might see if he wants to try it.

Can the computer see the Onkyo? What operating system are you using? In Win 7 open up the network and Sharing centre (right click on the icon down at bottom right), and choose 'see full map'. If the Onkyo is there, try right clicking and choose 'Install'. I had done this before I tried a no password user account, and don't know if it made a difference or not.

I am using windows 7. Yes. Onkyo 509 is there in full map but under network, media devices it is still showing 'computer name: guest'. What can I do to change ? I even have tried this under an account without any password. Thanks for your help.

The only other thing that I can think of is to check the firewall settings; but that's a long shot, because if the Onkyo can see the 'Guest' account, it's probably getting through the firewall. Might be worth trying Onkyo support.

BucksyI have a Onyko 709 bought under the same deal. I am having trouble with the 709 "finding" the router although the internet radio works.

What model router/moden are you using? Do they have to be DLNA certified?

I think if you have the Internet radio working, then it must have found the router. Mine is a TP-Link TD-W8960N.

That,s what I thought. I have just tried  "net"  and then DLNA and it comes up with "no server" so it must be in the PC end. I have Win 7 and it can see the 709 in the network map and I have enabled it and enstalled but still no go. Might have to keep plugging on.

Might be worth setting up a new User account with no password, then open Win Media Player 12 and get the streaming going in the new account. Then see if the Onkyo can see it.
Another possibility is that your firewall is not allowing the Onkyo in (though if you can see it from Win 7 that seems unlikely). Aaah the joys of networking!

I was a bit disappointed with the stereo sound via CD, until I rejected the Audyssey decision and made my own selections (eg full band for front speakers). Much better now. Audyssey also got the bass crossovers poorly for my centre and surrounds: reset them too.
