I'm not trying to blow this out of whack, but some of these early fears/issues really, really, make me wish the 4810 would pass 3d and possess XT 32.

I've heard of some network card issues with it (the 4810) but that's a non-issue for me.

anyone test or compare the internal Denon scaler to their existing sources scaler? Just wondering how good or bad it is.

As posters in the lower level models have noted from the past year, in some cases the ABT chip is a bit better, in other cases there is no difference, just depends on the component you have connected and the display being used.

Don't hold your breath ... DenonJeff has stated that there will be no upgrade for prior year models.

3. Unlike previous year's models, with these new HDMI 1.4 AVRs, you must first press the AMP button and then the MENU button on the remote in order to get the Denon's GUI/OSD.

4. What are the first 3 digits of your serial number? They identify the YMM it was mfr'd.

1. I know that (I've owned a 4308, 5308 and 4310.. I'm fairly familiar with Denon's ) As I said, if I turn VC OFFf, the unit will not pass any source video (either black or grey screen...)
2. I was mistaken in my rush to figure out what was going on... because I was using the front panel menu, you see the next menu item on the list, which was output resolution I think.. an error on my part.
3. I know how the remote works and I can access the Setup menu just fine. BTW, this is a design choice that boggles me.
4. Sept.

I noted a flickering on the blank/black/grey video output screens last night... as of this morning, it is starting to show on the any sources video output.

WIllie... 3 video issues (me, ANut and Dennis, and a fourth issue with lock ups for Tyrinder) seems a bit high for me considering the low number of units in owners hand (on this thread...) Maybe in my frustration, I overstated my fear that Denon has a component level issue with this receiver on this inaugural video run.

In regards to owners in this thread, however, 3 out of 11 is 28% video issues... tiny sample size, but IMO points to a larger issue.

I would be happier if I had the issues Dennis was having.. this is so strange and inconsistent that I will be curious to see if they can figure out what the issue really is (I'll never know once I send it back..)

BTW... did I mention how good it sounds?

And I know that I am having these weird video issues, but even with the slight flickering, the video processing and scaling seems to be on par with all of the other ABT solutions I've used, i.e. excellent and pristine..

To my eyes, still the best on the market.

I'm so excited! Thought my 4311 was being delivered sometime next week, found out today it was shipped out on the 6th and is now on a local UPS truck to be dropped off TODAY! Hopefully once it's all hooked up I wont experience (m)any issues or a defective unit. Will be hooking up to a 58" Panny VT25, 2 mythos st's, 2 gem xls a mythos ten and an epik empire sub! *fingers crossed*

I believe the network card issue is the only real gotcha with the 4810. However, I have read in either 3310 or 3311 that this is a memory issue with the cards and buffer overload. This is remedied with a higher memory card type. Other than networking the 4810 is a great unit. If it could be upgraded to pseudo 3d or 1.4 it would be the one to beat. I'm not sure that Xt32 for an average room single subwoofer setup like mine the benefits are a major major boon.

In search of video bliss...

Another stupid question, are all the people with video issues using 1.4 cables on all ports? I have about 10 hdmi cables around the house I purchased in the last year and they are all hdmi 1.3x rather than 1.4 compatible.

I haven't had any handshake issues with any of my sources (PS3, laptop pc, xbox 360, dish network) when connected directly, and no other issues while the receiver is on, but want to figure this out. Any suggestions?

Probably a cable handshake issue, less than a 4311 issue.

You have pilot error on some of this stuff. Filmmixers grey screen issue does give me some concern but so far, unique to him.

HDMI cables are either Category 2 /"High Speed" (1080p) or Category 1/"Standard" (720p/1080i). Both have been out for the past 3 years or so. Cables can no longer be labeled as HDMI 1.3 or HDMI 1.4 as it is too misleading (they are the same except for the HDMI w/ethernet variety). Either of these cables will work with HDMI 1.4 components, however, if you want to pass 1080p video, you'll need the "High Speed" cable.

Thx!

The Emos work fantastic with Denons. You could use the UPA-5 for the Fronts, Center, and Wides and have the 4311 power everything else. The UPA current price is really good. the XPA -5 would give you slightly better dynamic range but with the UPA sale, it's a budget issue.

Your comments in your previous post led me to believe otherwise, which is why I offered the information. At the very least it's a reminder for new owners not familiar with Denon AVRs.

Thanks. I know my current cables are 1.2 for the xbox 360 and 1.3 for the rest. I tried using different cables between the recieve and my TV and couldn't fix the issue. Do you think if I used a Category 2 certified cable between the source to receiver and receiver to tv I may be able to solve the issue? I planned to purchase new cales once I got my new entertainment unit to avoid the rat's nest of wires and use 1 and 2 ft cables where I could instead of the standard 2 meter cables I purchased a couple years ago, but I am willing to try it if it fixes the problem. The issue doesn't really bother me since I normally use my receiver when watching tv, but knowing that a feature may not be working would irk me and worry me.

If anyone would chime in since I am no expert when it comes to cables I would appreciate it. I'd like to test because right now, this is the only thing that is bothering me with the receiver.

It could well be the cables. I suggest Monoprice, an advertiser here.

If you are able to pass 1080p video then you are using Category 2 cables already. Also, try using each of the other HDMI jacks on the AVR and see if you get the same result. On the lower level models, generally HDMI1 and HDMI2 act a little different than the remaining HDMI jacks.

I think its a wonderful sounding amp - the issue that pops up on mine is the sound would sometimes disappear, - its happened 3 times so far. I think its my cable provider, but I'm not certain yet. Everyonce in awhile there's a signal interup - the sound and picture goes blank for a about 1 sec comes back just fine, but since using the 4311 since Tues. its happened 3 times....

You'll get sound interruptions if your cable box switches from say 2.1 Dolby to 5.1. It is really an issue of changing processing. Curious, do you get any clicks from the 4311 when this occurs? The loaner 3311 was one clicky machine in situations like this; the 4810... Not so much.

I am away from my new 4311 for the weekend.

No, it does not click, I also had the 4310 for awhille and it never clicked - but your expalination of what may be causing this has excelled my concern about the issue...

Thanks I will. It's going to the weekend before I really have the chance to dial everything in. I did notice last night when watching the Giants game (go Giants!!) that the surround (TBS broadcasts in Dolby 5.1) was very good when I had the volume set at -5db or higher. However, this is a little loud for my tastes and when listening around -15db (still plenty loud for a game) the surrounds are barely audible. This is why in the past I'd boosted the volumes of the surrounds. All that said though overall the sound has noticeably mellowed from the overly bright first impression. I'm beginning to really like the sound of this amp.

For all those who use a Harmony remote. I took somebody's early advice here and just used the 4810 codes but of course the mapping for the HDMI inputs in all wrong and there's no BD input for example. I literally spent 2 minutes on this just to get something up and running but I guess I should have picked the 3311 to be a better match.

One feature of this amp that I really like is the volume overlay on the HDMI output to the monitor(doesn't work in 3D btw) and the status overlay which told me that the TBS braodcast was indeed being decoded as Dolby 5.1.

I will program this as a front page button for all activities on the Harmony. The amp is in a closet so I rarely look at the front panel read out.

Yes and no. That statement is misleading. First, just because it is not “certified” does not mean it will not work an adequate signal for 1080p. I would be surprised that the 5 dollar 9 ft cable at Fry’s would not carry an adequate signal for 1080p at 9ft. I’m sure someone out there has tried it… Distance is the key factor in most cases. Anyway, this link will has some very good technical information.

Would you think this switching like you mentioned from my cable box would be the culprit for the sound to stop or should I be concerned about the AVR?

It's either the cable losing the 5.1 signal or the receiver dropping it. I would find it odd if a person had a receiver before and never had that issue and with this receiver it has suddenly happened.

You could also have a compatibility issue between you cable box and the 4311. I presently have a Marantz SR7002 and I switched from Directv to AT&T U-Verse and it doesn't alwaysl play nice with the Marantz. Also, have you switched HDMI inputs on the AVR to see if the problem persist? You just never know with HDMI.

Updates on my receiver:
The Audyssey "freeze" bug at "Saving... 99%" has not happened again, i've ran Audyssey 6 times since it happened. No idea what caused the first issue, but it works now.



My only issues now are:
1) HDMI Handshake issues with popcorn hour. Seems to be related to the screensaver on the device.
2) Audyssey settings seem wierd to me, but sound great.


As I stated before, I use a 14x9 room designed for a 3 person home theater. Using 2x Klipsch RF-82s, 1x Klipsch RC-62, 4x Klipsch RS-52s. Fronts are bi-amped with the height inputs. These speakers are so efficient that Audyssey likes to set them to -12dB which is my receiver's max. Which has got me slightly worried.

Audyssey settings:
Front: Large
Center: Small
Subwoofer: 1 spkr
Surround: Small
Surround Back: Small - 2 spkr
Front Wide: None
-
Front L: 8.8FT
Front R: 8.7FT
Center: 8.9FT
Subwoofer: 5.7FT
Surr L: 4.7FT
Surr R: 4.7FT
Surr Back L: 4.4FT
Surr Back R: 4.3FT
-
Front L: -10.5dB
Front R: -11.5dB
Center: -12.0dB (Slightly concerned about this.)
Subwoofer: -5.5dB
Surr L: -12.0dB (Slightly concerned about this.)
Surr. R: -12.0dB (Slightly concerned about this.)
Surr Back L: -12.0dB (Slightly concerned about this.)
Surr Back R: -12.0db (Slightly concerned about this.)
-
Front: Full Band
Center: 40Hz (Slightly concerned about this.)
Surround: 60Hz (Slightly concerned about this.)
Surr. Back: 60Hz(Slightly concerned about this.)


With these settings i'm using normal Audyssey (not flat), with DynamicEQ at 0db, and Dynamic Volume OFF. Does this seem right? I've ran Audyssey 3x, with the lights off, dead silent, and only the receiver on just as the manual states. I even removed the clocks from the room. Same results all 3 times.

Your going to need a hand held db meter and per channel test tones.
