Do you have the same issues as you do on your Jazz station? What are you using for an antenna? I have a stand along Sangean HD radio unit on my whole house setup hooked to my VHF/UHF/FM antenna sitting atop a 30' tower, and sometimes the HD radio sucks. Not the Sangean HD unit, but the station broadcasting the signal. I don't know what causes it, but stuff happens. Like ESPN in HD, most of the time it just sucks, but I am not returning my plasma because ESPN uses shoddy technology to broadcast its signal.
So how are you grabbing the HD signal, are you using the plastic antenna that came with your Denon? If you are, I would suggest getting something a bit more effective and at least give it a shot and get your panties out of a wad.
Mike, I am using the dipole antenna that came with my 4310. The reception is great, as I am only 20 miles, as the crow flies, from Providence, RI, channels.
TO MY CREDIT, I MUST love Denon products, as I am fighting, with little help from either Denon or this forum, for credibility with this issue. Please read my previous posts on this thread.
As I respond to you, my HD radio has been consistently playing for just under 12 hours, without interuption, at 45. If I venture into a volume level of 55+, then at some point it will cut out and the irritating noise that is customarily associated with "locked up" video games will surface.
AGAIN, aside from the Denon that I lost in a divorce back in 1988, I OWN AND CONTINUE TO UTILIZE A DENON, DRA-625; DCM-555, AVR-3803, and THIS.
I believe that it has something to do with HD compression of signal.
PLEASE; prove me wrong and help me to resolve this problem; ANYONE.
Otherwise, recommend an alternate resource that will resolve this issue.
SONY is out per Ira, and I respect his opinion. Denon has always been good to me. Is the world suddenly rotating in a counter clockwise direction.
p.s. As in my previous posts; ALL traditional FM stations play perfectly, and ALL HD stations exhibit this problem.
