Hello, I've been bitstreaming hd surround from my htpc to my 2309 and discovered a while back that dts-hd sounded noticeably clearer and louder than truehd. After some brief research I found this forum and the posts about a firmware update released for my receiver. Does this sound like I've been bitten by the denon bug? Can someone please help me locate the files needed to perform the update?

That's an awesome thrift store find for only 40 bucks. Were you able to determine the source of the radio interfarence? Are your cables shielded?

A few days ago, my 2309ci started acting up. On the Direct TV HMDI input when I would turn to it would try to lock in then reset and try again. It lock in. When I saw lock in what I mean is the videos signals outputted on the display would flash but never stay on. The unit was trying to output the signal, which it had been doing for 6 years but couldn't.


So I did factory reset, ran the Audiysss...and reassigned the inputs. Now...nothing is outputted at now. No audio no video. Even the tuner outputs nothing. I unhooked the HDMI cable for the DirecTV box and hooked directed to my Samgsung 4K TV and works great.


Question I suppose is that I want to make sure it's failed before I go out and replace it. I'm been wanting to replace it anyway..just didn't want to get forced into it yet. Is there something else I should try before I say the last rites?


Thanks


Bill

Try doing about 4-5 microprocessor resets in a row. Then power on the TV, wait a few seconds, the AVR, wait a few seconds, then the source device. If still no joy, purchase a new set of cables from forum sponsor Monoprice or Blue Jeans Cables.

Think you have a defective AVR? Owner's manual - Factory reset 4-5 times in a row.

Did this work for anyone else?

Thanks! I actually haven't heard any more of that but I've been too busy to really solve the issue and listen for it. Perhaps moving things and changing hookups since then solved it.

No idea what is shielded, I've always had cheap rca cables for everything. Ill keep that in mind, but how can that cause radio interference on other inputs? Sounds internal to me.

Hopefully I am in the right place.

Before I et started, it looks like there have been software upgrades for this receiver??? I bought it new 8 years ago (or so) and have never done, nor did I know you could do, upgrades.

With that said, I have never had good speakers (other than a short home trial of an Internet brand several years ago) of which I played with Audessey but probably never understood and got right.

Help with my system
I have a Denon 2309 CI

Bought Sierra 2's (and enjoying them)

Just got in a Rhythmic L12 today and hope to have it hooked up tomorrow.

I will hook up LFE on the AVR and the sub and that's all I know. Some switches and knobs on the sub that I'm not sure I understand what to do with.

Need to find the Audessey accessories. Who knows where this stuff is it's been so long since I saw it.

What I have been reading tonight looks like the LFE jacks are used for 5.1 and 7.1. But what about 2.1? Will this work? I don't expect to add any more speakers for a while.

And how should I set this up without Audessey if I can't find the mic?

1. Upgrades, no ..... updates (ie. fixes - boomy bass when using Audyssey), yes. PM me with your non-gmail/non-edu email address and I can email the update to you.
2. Set the sub gain/volume knob to about 10 o'clock. Set the frequency knob to maximum (ie. generally 150Hz). Run Audyssey using a mic boom stand or camera tripod to support the mic.
3. Yes, LFE works with 2.1 and when playing a 5.1/7.1 audio track, it will be down mixed to your 2.1 setup.
4. You'll need to purchase an Audyssey mic (either directly from Denon or eBay) - DM-A409 is the mic that comes with the 2309CI however, you can also use the ACM1H or ACM1HB.

I am reading through some other posts and realize that I will have a VERY hard time understanding a LOT of the terminology being used here. I eyed a "Dummies" explanation to my questions. Seems like you have to be an engineer to watch tv and listen to music in your own home!!! YIKES!
