Best regards.

I am baffled by the answer, I don't think that the firmware update can be found online and I didn't ask if there was an update for Netflix obviously. Tomorrow I'll write them again.
I had a brief back and forth replying to the message they sent and unfortunately their responses to me provided zero information. Thanks again....let us know if you hear any more.

They have confirmed that there is a firmware update for the NR1403 (March 2014) but it is not clear if it will solve the problem. € 61 + shipping charges


what to do now?!
I have to think about it..

Thanks for the update...nice that there is firmware but I think I will live with the issue rather than invest money without any guarantees that it will solve the issue. Maybe I'll look at the NR1506.....

This evening they sent me a new email on their own initiative:


" For what concerns the update, we recheck and we can confirm:
firmware update (March 2014) for NR1403 -- solves anomalies and noises with DD + -- "


This month I can't but next one I'll give it a shot.

You didn't explicitly mention if you used the TV's ARC HDMI connection. Usually ARC is available on only one of the TV's HDMI inputs, although CEC is available on all of them.</div>
</div>
<br>
Yes, It's in both ports marked ARC, on the TV and the Receiver. I even brought over my old Pioneer receiver and placed it in the position of the Marantz. ARC worked perfectly with the Pioneer. It has to be an issue or setting with the Marantz. I'm not a novice by any means, just unfamiliar with the Marantz nuances....
had the same problem and it drove me crazy. hdmi control stopped working between marantz nr1403 and panasonic 50 inch .

FOUND THE CULPRIT.

removed the hdmi connection from the panasonic dvd player to marantz.
somehow that was interfering. i noticed also guys complaining about ps3 connection causing the same issue.

try removing all hdmi output from marantz one by one and see if hdmi control returns.

As a new NR1403 user with a new unit, i'm trying to determine what the best settings for a 5.1 setup for broadcast tv, streaming and BD dvds would be. The user guide tells you what each function does, but now to configure your system. Should I use default or what parameters are best changed for my setup? Thanks for any help.

Dynamic EQ - ON
Dynamic Volume - OFF
Select either DD or DTS depending on whether DD or DTS audio is being received.

Ensure your BDP is set to "bitstream" + Secondary Audio/Mix set to OFF.
