My continued pestering of emails to Denon support finally resulted in a (non) response:

Thank you for your inquiry. We have been in contact with the engineers on this issue and are awaiting on their response on a timeframe for when this will be resolved.


As part of this "escalation", they said "If this issue is not resolved to your satisfaction, you may reopen it within the next 30 days."

I'd be happy with a firmware update at this point, however this is just taking too long with conflicting information. Offer up a 4520CI for a reasonable price, and be done with me

^^ Yes, my support ticket got the same update. The previous feedback I got from Denon was via their Facebook page.

I strongly urge other 4311ci users with the issue (which amounts to everyone with the current USA firmware) to call in and raise a ticket with them.

Yep, that was the same update I had on my ticket this morning. So I called. The guy said my case has already been escalated to the highest person. I asked to speak to this person, after a little hesitation he said if I email or update my ticket, it automatically goes to that guy. Hard to believe. I kindly said I'm tired of these canned responses that have been repeated since February. I said I'd like a resolution as this is not the correct way to treat customers that spend money in your top of the line products. So, we shall see. If nothing by Friday, Mr nice guy won't be very nice anymore.

I got the same update to my ticket today, too. It seems like yet another delay tactic...

I run my 5.1 set up in a REALLY large room using a 4311. Is there ever a time where running "double bass" (fronts and sub) is advisable?

The bass from my SVS PB-12+ is more or less eaten up by the vastness of the room...so I was wondering if I might be (slightly) better off having the lows come from my sub and fronts. My fronts are Klipsch RF-7iis (rated down to 30Hz).

Mathematics is the reason for the season.

Right, I thought setting the fronts as large and then choosing LFE+Main would mean the sub still handles the LFE and then the sub and fronts get all that is below the fronts crossover...essentially giving a bit more bass from the fronts.

Currently, everything is set to small and crossed at 80. I thought switching the fronts to large and choosing LFE+Main would only add more bass from the fronts and sub.

I easily could be misunderstanding all of this...

I downloaded the update successfully just now. I would test to see if it fixed the Netflix issue, but I don't have a Netflix client connected to the 4311 that supports DD+.

To check the firmware, hold status and return buttons and cycle power.

Sorry guys, but this update was for Rhapsody issues, not the Netflix DD+ issue.

I wouldn't hold out on any hope of a Netflix DD+ firmware update. Rather keep pursuing either the 4520CI refurb ($100)/ new ($300) exchange that has been mentioned in this thread by one of the forum members.

No, you have it right. LARGE with LFE+MAIN would mean double bass.

Whether it's a "good idea" though is questionable. You will get more OUTPUT in the bass region because of the extra bass sources, but you are essentially guaranteed to have "lumpier" response in the overlapping region.

Remember that with XT32, the subwoofer(s) are EQ'd as a summed response to yield flat output through their passband, and then the speakers are similarly EQ'd to be flat with their passband. When you apply a crossover filter, the response is flat both above and below that point as each speaker is doing its thing independently. However, if you now overlap the two responses (rather than crossing over) you are combining the flat subs with the flat speakers... but the sum is NOT going to be flat anymore because of how the bass region interacts.

So it's a tradeoff, and you can use your ears to decide if it's acceptable to you. A far better solution would be to add a second subwoofer IMO.

Side note, and obvious question, but have you tried turning the sub up? Perhaps it's just that the "calibrated" flat bass is a bit too thin for you, and running the sub 3-5dB hot might just do the trick. Forgive me if you've already tried this.

Thanks for the information, JD. I just installed the update, and verified the DD+ bug still exists. These firmware updates don't come often. Why they would push it, and not include the DD+ fix that they've included in all the other platforms is mystifying.

I need help please. Tried updating the FW, its stuck in a failure loop, it shuts off to retry and the display reads "ether IMG 05min updating". It will fail and restart. Then the display reads "please wait update retry". And starts the loop all over again. I did a MP reset, still does it. Any help would be very much appreciated.
