Troubleshooting

Stream Dropouts

If your device is losing connectivity due to either:

  • inconsistent or slow wifi / data
  • mobile signal is switching between towers
  • mobile data is switching between 3G and 4G/5G

We highly recommend you enter the Calm Radio app’s Settings menu and reduce the audio quality setting to either Normal or Mobile.

Your device may have too many applications open in the background memory which can cause your device to stall or slow down resulting in poor performance. Close as many apps as possible if your device response is slow.

View Open Apps. Click on the bottom the left of the Home button to reveal your open apps. This will reveal all the application you have previously opened.

Close an app. You can remove individual applications from the background memory, or select “Close All” to remove all open applications from memory. This is a safe procedure and will not result in losing installed apps.

Re-installing Your App

It may be necessary occasionally to re-install your Calm Radio Android app. To re-install your app:

  1. Delete the Calm Radio app by opening your phone’s Settings app
  2. Look for “Apps

  • The Yamaha RX iPhone/iPad/Android app. This is great for controlling the AMP and it’s input sources anywhere you have a WiFi signal
  • Visit http://yradio.vtuner.com/setupapp/yamaha/asp/AuthLogin/SignIn.asp website.
  • This will show your bookmarks and your added CALMRadio stations along with all the other aggregated vTuner radio sites
  • Via your television under the “Internet Radio” menus.
  • The front panel of your Yamaha AMP.
  • The easiest way to do this initially and to setup your AMP is to use a TV screen. The following is an outline on how to do this.
  • Ensure you can see the Yamaha RX page on your TV set (Internal piano background image).
  • It is hard to setup without doing this first even though it may still be possible.
  • Use the “On Screen” display on your main remote select the “Setup” menu on your TV and set your AMP’s IP address.
  • Ensure your IP address, gateway and DNS are accurate. I use a static IP address on my AMP so I can easily access the RX’s inbuilt Tuner webpage via a browser. Just point a browser to your AMP’s IP address and you will see the RX web controller page.
  • I have twice noticed an error where Internet Radio is not accessible on the AMP. An AMP reset by removing the mains power usually fixes this.
  • Using the Yamaha Browser/TV or Smart Phone app, you should be able to see your vTuner Internet Radio stations after selecting Internet Radio as an input source for a particular Zone.
