Also, the only sources that will pass to the optical output is if it is connected to one of the two optical inputs.
So does this mean that I can't listen to NET/USB either.

Thanks, I wasn't sure. I'm glad this topic was brought up. I just started trying to use the other Zones this weekend.

Like you said, it isn't backwards compatible. You would need to go with an older player to use with the 4311 or replace the 4311 with a newer Denon AVR that supports Denon HD Link.

Ok. It's just that the older players don't have USB HDD input... I have all my Hi-Rez music on a HDD... I don't use a networked set up or else it could work but I have minimal space and having a PC in the room is always pretty loud... maybe I can use a stand alone networked HDD with the 4010 Blu Ray player...
Wonder if that would work...

And got my 4311 last year so I'm not gonna change it unless there's a deal on a 4520
so I guess i can't use Denon link for now...

Would have been nice to be able to convert the RJ-45 signal to coax...and have out work...

Thanx for the help...
