No Sound, no GUI on television, dropping connection to home network.
Hoping to get some help because my AV guy seems to be MIA.
My setup is the following:
Denon AVR 2113CI
C-Series Multizone Controller Amplifier MCA-C3
Russound AB 3.2 automatic switcher
There's also an airport express giving me airplay throughout the house via the zone controller.
All of my inputs are HDMI.
A little while ago, i tried to do a firmware update on the denon. It failed. It then sent my receiver into a downward spiral. I've had to reset the network controller as well as the processor. That got me out of the cycle of the receiver displaying "update retry" but then the network connectivity stopped.
I waited a few days and then magically, the receiver pulled an IP and I was able to access to the receiver through the web administration. At the same time, the Amp B assignment on the AB switcher, either isn't recognizing a signal coming from the Denon or it's broken, as the green light to indicate that the 'Home Theatre' is in use.
Additionally, the GUI for the denon wasn't working. I unplugged all sources and grabbed a small display and HDMI cable just to eliminate any external factors and plugged it in, still no luck on getting the GUI up.
The receiver keeps dropping the connection to my home network making any sort of set up frustrating — especially since the GUI doesn't work either.
Airplaying music from my iphone through to the zone controllers seems to work fine so I suspect there is something screwey going on with the denon. I just don't have enough experience to figure it out.
Does any of this make any sense to anyone? help would be appreciated.
