NP2900 - This station is not available in your country
since a couple of month I'm struggling with a problem with my NP2900.
Currently I live in Shanghai and bought a Philips NP2900 to listen to my loacal German radio stations.
The NP2900 was working nicely for nearly a year, however, since March 2012 my NP2900 stopped playing any non-chinese radio stations and comes back with a message spoken in English 'This station is not available in your country'.
Unfortunately I only have this problem with the NP2900. On another wireless radio from another manufacture I can play all foreign radio stations, same is true for my PCs and iPADs.
Therefore I must assume as it is neither a problem with my internet connection nor the chinese firewall that this has to do with the Philips NP2900.
I already wrote to Philips a couple of times, but their Support Center were not able to help and passed the problem to their experts. That is now 4 months ago and haven't heard anything since.
Has anybody experienced similar issue and know how this can be fixed ?
It is really frustrating, because I have already reset the NP2900 several times, connected to different internet connections,
but it always comes back with the same error message.
I would be glad, if anybody could at least give me an idea on what else I could do to get this fixed.
We already considering throwing the NP2900 away and replace it with a device from another manufacturer as this seems to be a specific Philips problem.
Thanks in advance for any hints.
