I have a new problem with my 3 year old 1913.
I have standard connections - Denon goes to my samsung TV's HDMI ARC input.
my Rasberry PI, Blue Ray and Xfinity X1 DVR connects via HDMI to the Denon's inputs.

Since the last 3 weeks, I have been having a problem - in that my denon is not able to send my cable box's video or audio to TV.
When i reboot my Xfinity - I do get the display on TV "Welcome to X1" and "powering on - please wait for a few mins".
and after that - no display at all.

I trouble shooted as much as I could - and I am seeking your help now.
I hit cbl/sat - nothing
I changed HDMI cables - nothing.
I bypassed Denon - and connect X1 STB directly to the TV - that works. on same cable from denon's HDMI output. that works.
I also connected from X1 to a non-ARC input of TV- that works.

so basically X1 STB directly to Samsung TV works.
X1 STB via Denon (via cbl/sat, DVD or multi-media HDMI in) does not work.
Rasberry PI, blue ray are switched by Denon properly.

any thoughts?

Most likely an HDCP issue or perhaps the result of a recent firmware update to the X1. Connect the X1 video via HDMI to the TV with X1 audio via optical to the AVR.

volume control on cable box remote no longer working

I used to be able to control the volume on my 2113 via the cable box remote. I have lost this functionality. When I try to increase/decrease the volume, a display on the TV indicates "speakers off".

Tried a soft and hard. nada.

Any tips?

BTW, I married up the remote with the AVR. I can turn the receiver off and on from the remote.

tks

HDMI Control must be enabled on both the cable box and AVR although the issue could also be the result of a recent firmware update to the cable box.

TY jd, your a Denon genus. I was hoping you would chime in. I knew you had a solution. Success!

looks like the HDMI cable might have been faulty - which is weird - since my raspberry PI was being "switched" properly.
also the Comcast X1 DVR output upon reboot stating "Welcome to X1......" was coming thru on the TV properly.
just that the channels were not showing up.

This was thru a monster cable - high end - shielded cable worth $40-$50 - and 3 years old.

I switched that a regular low end - free - cable that I had - and that got all the inputs working !
Not sure what was wrong with the monster cable that only X1 HDMI was not Xmitting.

but solved for now!

Yet another reason to stay away from high priced Monster cables.
