However, if the receiver decides it want to display something, such as entering a network audio source or turning on a CEC enabled playback device, then it will turn the TV on and change the TV's input.

My 4520-CI seems to be broken.

I got a refurbished on back in January from A4L. The volume has become very .. random... Sometimes some channels work and some don't. Sometimes it's really quiet. Sometimes it's speaker-destroying loud. Any change of volume gives some new random thing. For example, turn it on with volume set to -30 dBFS. Apparent volume is left -30, center -80, right -10, sub +5. Push volume down once, changes to left +30, center -50, right -50, sub -50, frantically push mute by reflex and it changes to left -40, center -30, right -30, sub +20, etc.

This has happened before and went away for several weeks after power-cycling the device. But now it's back and doesn't seem to be fixing itself. It does this with multiple different HDMI devices and with the receiver's network apps.

Anyone seen this before?

And for all the people who got bad 4520's from A4L, did you deal with A4L if the broke after 30 days or did go directly to Denon?

Setup->Video->HDMI Setup->HDMI Control

I think... I needed to enable it for the TV Audio Return Channel (rather than CEC).

I was just pointing him at where in the 4520 to look for the HDMI CEC control. I don't use HDMI CEC in any case, use a Harmony remote to more reliably turn things on/off.

ARC uses HDMI-CEC.

Yes, one of my refurbs did that with the volume. Even microprocessor reset didn't help. Did you try that?

I had two refurbs before I gave up and went new. A4L helped me out on the second a little beyond 30 days. Can't hurt to ask nicely....

What is TV Audio Return Channel? Is this an option somewhere in the 4520? I can't seem to find it. Thanks!

It's the HDMI-CEC component in a compatible tv that can work with the avr for control....it is the HDMI Control in the 4520 as indicated.

Power On doesn't work through Remote Control In

Has anyone been able to power on the 4520CI using the Remote Control In jack? Using Xantech IR.

See thread "Denon 4520CI will not "wake up" to Remote In Signal" under Audio/Receivers, Amps and Processors. Thanks in advance.

Page 10 of the manual explains ARC with a nice sketch under About ARC Function. It eliminates having to use
a separate audio cable from tv to stereo. Audio will return from tv to receiver if desired over single hdmi cable.
The 4520 has 3 possible arc ports so designate which hdmi out (1,2 or 4) is active with hdmi control. ARC will
work on that port. Now turn on ARC in tv and it should work. Or connect a toslink cable and leave ARC off.

Video output

Hi. I have my laptop (native resolution 720) connected to my 4520 via HDMI. Until recently the 4520 would output 1080 to my monitor, from this input. Now it will only output 720. Any ideas as to what happened? Perhaps I should try another input? Thanks for any suggestions.
