    Feel free to PM me your IP address and I'll see whether something
    "funky" is going on. Alas, I doubt there's anything I can do, because
    here's how you would get that error message: whenever you browse the
    Pandora menu, we'd pick your IP address and send it to Pandora's API for
    verification. If they like it, you're let in. If not, you'd get that
    error message. What Pandora does in the background, I don't know.

    And yes it's inconsistent, in that this call would only be done when
    navigating the menus, but not on playback.

    iPeng just connects to UESmartRadio.com and that's where that error message comes from. As Michael explains above, it checks with Pandora.
    iPeng never talks directly to Pandora directly in a UESR setup (ok, it does so to retrieve cover art is something is playing on Pandora, but that's not the point here).

    Pippin. Thanks. Any idea of how to determine where iPeng/Pandora API/UESmartradio is getting a non US location from? Everything here is NJ and this is the only app on any devices that are reporting a country/location issue.

    Again (and Michael and I have told you several times): its through your network connection.
    UESR.com checks the source IP address your communication is coming from.
    Somehow your routes must differ.

    Nothing location related happens on your devices.

    As said before it's only the IP address seen from where your connection
    is coming from. If you're saying that the issue only arises when using
    iPeng to control your SB, then one issue might be that your phone
    actually isn't using your wifi behind the VPN, but some other connection
    (cell).

    Michael ... I have confirmed, 100%, that the tablet (iPad) and the radio is using a US (New Jersey) IP address. Could there being something cached from older/past connections that may have used a local Caribbean IP address somehow causing a problem? Id assume that a check is done each time a connection is made.

    Thanks.
