Well, I hauled the AVR4810ci up to my computer room today, to "pre-configure" the unit before I put it into the entertainment center with all the speaker wiring and video cables, etc. After plugging in the Ethernet cable, in a few minutes a message came up on the TV screen that "a new update was available". I was surprised that it automatically linked to Denon and displayed this message without my prompting for an update.
After a 16 minute download, it completed the Firmware update without a problem. I then disconnected the Ethernet cable and attached the Wireless antenna to the back of the AVR4810ci. I clicked on the Network option and it found several SSIDs in the neighborhood. Clicked on my Cisco Router name and keyed in the WEP code. Bingo - it was instantly connected. Really easy process as compared to what I had expected from reading the Manual.
Question for all: Can I plug an Ethernet cable from the AVR4810ci into my Denon DBP2010ci Blu-ray player and use the AVR4810ci as a wireless Hub to update the 2010ci?
I have pre-configured the speaker setting to 11.1, set the speaker sizes, and audio formats for the different video sources. So once my 2 external Amps for the Front Wide and Surround "B" speakers arrive this week, I will be able to install everything, hopefully this weekend.
I am a "happy camper" tonight!!
