Is there anything else I could provide. I am happy to test any suggestions.

Are your other ports working Ok? Make sure that the right hdmi input is selected for that source after the micro reset you did. You could try a different hdmi cable. How long of cable do you use from avr to tv and source to avr and do you use a hdmi wall jack for wire management?

Yes, all the other ports are fine. I have three devices connected -- a media player, PVR, and PS3. All my devices other than the PVR were working. However,
I switched the cable and noticed no change in that ONE port. I then connected the other devices to that one port and they weren't working. I then used the same HDMI cable in other ports and they were all fine.

I don't have any wall jacks for HDMI management. All the cables go from the source to the AVR , and one cable goes to the TV. THe HDMI cables are all the same length (5ft) with one cable which is 15ft.


How much does it cost to repair that ONE port ?

The display Issue was resolved after i did the microprocessor Reset. Thanks again JDS

No clue, but replacing the HDMI board itself costs $550 although if you purchased from an authorized reseller, then it's still under the 3 year warranty. Check Denon's website to determine if there is a repair facility in your local area.

Really? that's quite expensive. Considering the price of these units, I might as well buy a new one. I will bring it to a repair shop first and get an estimate.

i don't have a warranty with Denon since I was foolish enough to get it through a gray market. However, I did buy a warrant through CPS but i learned I have to mail the heavy receiver

Even with a warranty, you would have had to pay the $40 or so to ship it to a repair facility if one was not local.

I've owned my 3311ci for a while now, had it hooked up to a standard TV at first and video gaming was fine. Then I bought a "50 Panny plasma (the TC-P50GT30) and I now have video game lag. I have a PS2, hooked up through the S-Video input (the "Dock" input). Is there any way to fix this lagging problem?
jdsmoothie's Avatar jdsmoothie 05:44 PM 12-12-2011

Try Video Mode - GAME (p. 70).
NSZteg's Avatar NSZteg 10:43 PM 12-12-2011
Thanks for getting back.
I put it to Game, and that did eliminate some of the lag but not all, about half of it I suppose if not a touch more. So I tried your next suggestion with the Video Convert. I put it to Off but then I had no video, still had the audio, but just a black screen.
The manual says When a non-standard video signal from a game machine.....is input, the video conversion function might not operate. In this case set "Video Convert" to "Off".
But it's when I set it to Off is when the picture disappears.

Does non-standard mean non-HD?

The second note says: When "Video Convert" is set to "Off", the video conversion function does not work. In this case, connect this unit and TV with the same type of cable.
Does that mean I have to connect the 3311 to the TV with an S-Video, because that's what the PS2 is using as an input? Obviously you can't do that.
jdsmoothie's Avatar jdsmoothie 04:27 AM 12-13-2011

Sorry, got you confused with a guy in another thread connecting his PS3 via HDMI. Video Convert is required to convert the analog S-video to HDMI. However, the AVR will convert the S-video to composite video so as noted in the manual, your next option would be to connect from the composite video monitor out jack to the TV.

Hey guys, I've got a couple quick questions for you all. Currently own a 3808ci that has a "click" at the beginning of commercials and sometimes during them. That and the fact that it's not 1.4hdmi capable I've found myself with the upgrade bug.

I'm getting a new tv in a couple months, tax return, and it will be a 3d set. I want to keep my avr and blu ray players the same brand if at all possible. So I've been looking really hard at the 4311 because it's got that beautiful front face door that covers all the buttons, 1.4 capable and the highest audysee available. I just found this avr and saw it's capable of 1.4 also. I also read on the first page there's only minor differences between the 3311 and the 4311, slightly less wattage, a few less inputs, a lesser but equal to my 3808 audysee and only singular hdmi monitor ouputs. How do you guys stack these two avrs against each other? Is the 4311 clearly a better avr or just a little better?

Also, are there any regular problems with this avr? I saw someone having trouble with a hdmi board in his, is this a single case or more wide spread?

Thanks guys, I really appreciate all the help. I'm stuck on Denon hard. They actually gave me the 100 dollar upgrade feature pack for the 3808 to see if that would stop the clicking issue I'm having, that in my book is customer service and I am very greatful for any company that stands behinds it's products like that. Thanks again guys.

Note that all of the XX11/X91 AVRs are HDMI 1.4. The 4311CI is justifiabley 2x the cost of the 3311CI as it is that much better, even if only for the upgraded Audyssey MultEQ XT32, but also for having better components, additional inputs and capability to expand to 11.2. If the cost difference is not an issue, the 4311CI is your better choice, however, if it is an issue AND you don't have difficult speakers to drive AND you never expect to expand beyond a 7.2 setup, then the 3311CI would likely serve you well. Although initially there were some network card issues with the 3311CI, they were resolved for the most part via several firmware updates.
centauro74's Avatar centauro74 10:27 AM 12-13-2011
Some functions the 4311 has that the 3311 doesn't are
Pre-Amp only mode that completely disables the internal power amplifiers, in case you want separated amps.
Audyssey's advanced MultEQ XT32 room acoustic correction, new Sub EQ HT processor provides subwoofer tuning, and can even provide separate processing for each of two connected subwoofers.
electronleaker's Avatar electronleaker 10:51 AM 12-13-2011
Good to know info guys. Thank you for that. I have a set of klipsch rf series speakers in a 5.1 setup. The rf-82 mains, the two speaker and horn center (can't remember the number of it off the top of my head) and two of the 52 triangular surrounds for backs. I'm pretty sure their fairly efficient. I can't even turn my 3808 up all the way before it hurts to listen to. Not because of clipping but because it's just freak'n loud. I do value the XT32 a lot, just bumping up to the dynamic eq made a world of difference to me, I can only imagine what the XT 32 could do. I could swing the 4311 but it would be tight getting that with a denon blu ray player and the most important upgrade the 735 sharp tv. I was and it looks like still am leaning heavily towards the 4311 but just wanted to see if going from the 3808 to either the 3311 or 4311 would be a step up or down. Looks like the 4311 would be the step up and 3311 the step down.
batpig's Avatar batpig 11:09 AM 12-13-2011
if you will NEVER go beyond a 7.1 setup, then the 3311 will do just fine considering how efficient your speakers are.

the biggest upgrades on the 4311 are more power, the advanced XT32 room correction with dual-sub processing, and the ability to expand beyond 7ch setup to (up to) 11 channels.

I got the free Airplay - thank you for the info. It worked at first, but now, not so much.

Itunes recognizes the 3311, but shows an unknown error when trying to connect. The 3311shows Airplay playing on the monitor (but with circle spinning and no sound or album info)

All other functions on "net/usb" are working. The network standby is set to on and the 3311 shows up on the network.

I have unplugged the 3311 several times, unplugged the router, and restarted the pc.

There was an Itunes update 10.5.2.11, Airplay worked before the update but that was 3 - 4 days before t he update was done.

Have you tried cycling your iPhone, iPad, or PC OFF/ON and see if that resolves the issue.

I'm only using the PC, no Iphone or Ipad and it has been restarted several times.

FWIW, I downloaded the same itunes update today and my Airplay is working just fine.

Like you, I'm streaming from a PC (Win Vista).
bobdell's Avatar bobdell 10:28 AM 12-14-2011
Mine worked fine the first day. The next day itunes would not recognize the 3311 - after restarting the PC and unplugging the 3311, it started working. Now it recognizes the 3311, but will not connect.

If your router has multi cast turn it on I believe it is in security.
glangford's Avatar glangford 05:51 AM 12-15-2011
I've noticed the 3311ci plays flac from the usb port. The manual seems to limit sample rate to 48 khz. What happens with say a 96 khz or 192 khz file purchased from hd tracks? Does it play it at lower sample rate, or choke on it?

Thanks for your suggestion. I turned on multi cast, but no change.

Airplay did work initially and the only change has been the Apple update to 10.5.2.11.

When I try to use Airplay, I lose control of the net/usb functions until I reset. Denon says that since Airplay basically hijacks control of the 3311 that this is conceivable. Everything returns to normal after I unplug the unit or reset it so I tend to agree with Denon that it is an iTunes problem.

I also think if it is an iTunes problem, others would be having the same problem.

Have you tried streaming any music over your Media Server on your Denon to rule out networking and router settings.

Yes and it works fine. Of course, once iTunes hijacks the Denon, all the net/usb functions stop until I reset the Denon.

I sent denon a question from their web page. In case anyone wants to know, denon responded that the 3311ci supports flac playback from usb up to 96 khz.
