How to Use a Yamaha AV Receiver With Pandora

Listen to Pandora over your home entertainment center.

With Pandora, you can create an Internet radio station that is tailored to your specific musical tastes. If you have a Yamaha AV receiver, then you can bring your Internet radio experience to any speaker system in your house instead of limiting it to your computer's sound system. A computer does not have to be connected; the receiver itself connects to the Internet. Assuming all your connections have been made correctly, this can all be done with the receiver's remote.

Step 1

Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into an Internet-connected modem or router, and plug the other end into the Ethernet port on the back of the receiver.

Step 2

Press the "Power" button on the receiver or its remote if it is not already turned on.

Step 3

Press the "Net/USB" button on the remote.

Step 4

Use the arrow keys on the remote control to scroll down to "Internet Radio," then press "OK."

Step 5

Scroll down to "Popular Stations," then press "OK."

Step 6

Scroll down to "Pandora" and press "OK." Use the "Play" and "Stop" buttons on the receiver or its remote to control playback.
