I'm doing the upgrade. It's been saying "please wait...authenticating" for an hour and twenty minutes.
I remember it went real slow last time. How long should I wait before I retry?

The estimated time was 20 minutes.

Thanks friends, I have Atmos now... (joke, of course)
I purchased my AVR-4311ci almost two years ago and love it! That said, I think I am going to stop following the Dolby Atmos Thread which may help keep the feelings you express to a minimum. ...........{heavy sigh}

Tried again and it worked.

I recently had my 4311 serviced through Panurgy because my HDMI1 stopped working. However, I've now run into an issue using HDMI Control. Now, when I turn off the tv the 4311 stays on. Before sending it to Panurgy, the receiver also used to go on standby. Any thoughts on how to fix this or should I send back to Panurgy?

Try cycling the HDMI Control setting and then power both devices off. Power on the TV first, wait a few seconds, then power on the 4311. Then power off the TV. If still no joy, likely cheaper to just get a Harmony remote, not to mention it would provide a lot more functionality in controlling your other devices as well.

I am not getting the on GUI overlay screen information when I am watching 3D.
I am using the Pioneer 450 for 3D viewing exclusively. I can't get the information for vol, audyssey, speaker trim, etc on screen.
When I press menu button for the avr, the the display blanks out and the menu gui come up on a black background.
For 2D, I use the Dune Base 3.0 and the GUI overlay works while watching a movie.
What or where should I start? At the Pioneer or at the AVR?

That's normal. The 4311 is old enough that it supports 3D but can't overlay graphics on top or process it at all. Just pass through.

I'm thinking of moving from my trusty 4311. You know - it's the home theater "upgrade" disease

Accessories4Less has the 4520 (new in box) for $1099. But the new AVR-X4000 looks like it could be a good alternative. It costs less, has more features, but lacks in terms of amplification. However, I'm running an Emotiva XPA-5, so amp power in an AVR isn't that critical.

Advice?
a> go with the discounted Denon AVR-4520
b> go with the new Denon AVR-X4000W
c> do nothing

Thanks!

None of above. The 4311 is already pretty fully featured with XT32 and 11ch support so the 4520 or X4000 are fairly marginal upgrades.

You haven't told us much about your current setup but I would strongly advise you to enjoy your 4311 until you are ready to upgrade to 3D audio (Dolby Atmos et al). It really is that much better. If you want to jump now the X4100 is a bit over $1k and will support a 9ch Atmos layout.
