Thank you for previous responses
I have another area to query
HDMI pass through / switching when the Denon is in standby, seems to be acting strange…
I have HDMI Control ON, on all devices (Denon, TV, Sky+, Bluray)
Firstly, the manual states that you need to specify which HDMI source is passed through to the TV when the Denon is in standby (or choose ‘last’)
However, when in standby, it will switch to whichever HDMI input is active anyway (as it does when the receiver is ON), so what is the point in this setting?
Secondly, prior to having the Denon, the sky+ box connect direct to TV, all we did to turn everything on was press the ‘SKY’ button on the sky remote.
This turns the sky box on and must send a HDMI signal to the TV to turn it on.
When the Denon is connected and in standby, the ‘SKY’ button still switches sky box and TV on, and Sky output is displayed on tv.
However, after approx. 5-10 seconds the screen goes blank – no signal.
Can’t work out what is being passed to the TV though, it’s just a blank screen.
I think the Denon switches to a different / unused input, maybe due to receiving a HDMI signal from the TV? Not sure what is going on.
If I turn on TV on its own, allow it to fully come on, then turn sky box on, all is ok.
Any ideas at all?!
Pressing SKY again seems to sort it out (after a few seconds thinking time)
Let me know if this should be posted elsewhere
