So, with recent-year Denon AVRs, how often have owners had to resort to resetting their microprocessors? (I've never had to do this with my old AVR-4306.) And if the microprocessor is reset, does that typically fix for good the problem that the owner had been having with the unit?
I bought a new 3313CI last weekend and have had the unit lock up on me on four occasions already. (By lockup, I mean that the unit becomes unresponsive to the remote and to button pushes on the unit itself (e.g., I can't even turn the unit off).) I have to unplug and then replug the 3313CI in order to regain control of it. (And yes, early on I did indeed install the latest firmware update.) So, last night, after the fourth lockup, I reset the microprocessor and will be watching closely for any recurrence of this problem. If a lockup does happen again, I guess I will try to return the unit to the retailer and get a new one.
