I've recently purchased a Denon 2113CI and am experiencing issues with audio over HDMI. On both my HTPC and PS3, when navigating around the menu the "click" sound of the GUI is low/non-existent unless audio coming from the device is consistent.
I've posted a video in which I'm clicking cycling through XBMC menu options by pressing up or down at different intervals:
It's hard to tell from this video, but on the button presses where there is no audio, the GUI does play a very soft or dampened click. The same "dampening" occurs with my PS3 menu. It seems that once audio is playing (like when I click quickly), or if a media file is playing, there's no issue.
One thing to note: when the receiver was off, the passthrough HDMI audio/video to the TV played fine so I believe that fact, as well as the PS3 having similar symptoms, would mean it's something with the receiver.
What I've done for troubleshooting:
The obvious thought that came to mind was some sort of Dynamic EQ or volume control setting. I cycled through each of the Audyssey settings (Dynamic EQ on/off; Dynamic Volume heavy/medium/light/off) as well as disabling Audyssey completely. I also tried the different compression restorer settings as well as different sound modes.
Can anyone out there give me a hand?
EDIT: Added a second video, this time the volume was maxed in order to illustrate the issue.
Thanks for the reply. I tried the reset twice and it didn't change anything. I see in your signature now the recommendation of resetting 3 or 4 times so I'll try that when I'm home. By the way, thanks for your work with the XX12/13 threads as they were a big help in my decision making.
I get the same thing from my AppleTV when moving around. Sometimes I hear the audio feedback and sometimes not quite. I just figured it is just the way it is and hadn't given it a thought till I read this thread.
Otherwise everything is just fine and it always plays and sounds good.
No change after multiple resets. I can see on the receiver when nothing is happening that both PCM and Digital are illuminated but when I do the "soft/slow" press PCM disappears. When I click through normally or when there's continuous audio, bit stay lit.
Another thing to note: I'm only seeing this issue when audio is coming from my HTPC in WASAPI mode. DirectSound works fine but I prefer to have a solution which allows for WASAPI to pass the audio to the AVR for processing.
