Upgrading my Home Theater. I replaced my previous Denon receiver and Denon DVD with newer Denon AVR-1910 and Blu Ray DVD-1800BD. I think the DVD unit I got is broken. I have NO output from DVD on HDMI for video or sound. Component video, regular analog video, and the 2 analog sound outputs work fine. I double checked the HDMI input port on receiver using same HDMI cable to another HD component no issue. Made sure the receiver HDMI input port was set for HDMI Auto. I connected the DVD with HDMI directly to an HD TV to bypass the receiver. Still no HDMI output (no signal detected). In the DVD setup menu all of the HDMI video output parameter items are grayed out. So I go back and re-read the manual 3 times. Tried changing some non-grayed items in DVD setup thinking I had to enable or change something else to get the HDMI output turned on. No luck.
I checked my DVD serial number on Denon.com for any firmware upgrades - none for my serial number. After a Tech Support phone call to OneCall.com they are now sending me a new replacement unit. Hate to send this back if it's something I am overlooking. I am not a novice to HT gear but I am perplexed on this one. Anyone else having this HDMI issue with the DVD-1800BD?
