First time poster here, though I've been lurking for several years.
A couple of days ago I received the Denon 4311CI I ordered from one of the dealers mentioned in the Great Deals Found thread, (see: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1388717/denon-4311ci-ee-for-1329-99
) and am having some problems with it.
First, I noticed that when playing cable programs from my Time Warner supplied Scientific Atlanta 8300HD DVR, there are a lot of dropouts and freezes on both live and recorded programs. It is not the cable as I've swapped the HDMI cable and the problem still persists.
The second problem is that the the on screen menu no longer displays on the TV when using the remote control. I can access the menu and it will display on screen ONLY if I use the button on the front panel, behind the flip down door, but not from the remote. It was working from the remote one minute then it just disappeared! The volume bar still shows,when changing volume but nothing else.
Alsoo, while I am at it,does the setup button - shift+search - do anything? It does not operate any functions on my unit.
I've read through the various 4311 threads and am aware of disappearing GUIs and HDMI connection problems but thought that these problems were fixed some time ago? I am now starting to think I have a dud unit.
I'd be very grateful for any help that fellow Denon 4311 owners can provide.
