I was wondering if anyone has any insight into the problem I'm having. I think it has to do with differences between the AVR-1910 and 2310. Here is the situation. For months I have had both an AVR-1910 and an AVR-2310 in two different theater systems. Both have Panasonic DMP-BD65-K Blu-ray players hooked up. Both were working well streaming Netflix. One day I tried to access Netflix and I got a message on the screen saying I had to update the firmware on the Blu-ray player. So I did. (Firmware version 1.56). When I tried to stream Netflix through the 2310, I had no sound at all. I tried a DVD (an AC/DC concert). The 2310 would not output in stereo at all, and in 5.1 only the rear channels worked. Weird. So I tried another (Matrix), and that worked OK in 5.1. I put in a Blu-ray disc (District 9), and everything worked fine as well. So I went back and forth with Panasonic, and after trying all the usual things, we could not get the Blu-ray to work. They finally sent me another unit. I hooked up the unit and damn, same problem. So I took the new unit and swapped it into the system with the 1910. Works fine. Took the other Blu-ray from the 1910 and swapped it onto the 2310. Same problems. So it seems like the issue is not with the Panasonic Blu-ray alone, but rather it seems the firmware update on the Panny has changed something about how sound is output, which is interpreted differently by the 1910 (which works), and the 2310 (which doesn't). Also, on the 2310, I do notice some slight snow that I do not see on the 1910, with both Blu-ray players. I have changed cables, reset the Blu-ray players. Unplugged units. I have been reading some threads about resetting the 2310. Is that a possible fix? Does it have to do with HDMI (sound is not passed through to the TV)?. Let me know if you have any ideas. If not, I will have to find another Blu-ray unit. I am NOT ditching the 2310, as it's less than a year old. Thanks.
