I am not going to say that we have completely solved the problem of the X4000 becoming unresponsive, but we have cut it at least in half by forgetting about static IP Addresses for the receivers and turning DHCP back on.

The "static IP" implementation of the X4000 is so fragile that it sometimes even spontaneously reverts to an old address without human intervention.

Hi,

I have moved to Canada from the UK and I am considering picking up a Denon AVR-X4000 now that the X4100 is out and the X4000 price has gone down a bit. I have a UK Sony BDP blu ray player so that I can play back my UK blu rays and DVDs easily. Will the US/Canadian bought X4000 be able to handle European HD resolution such as 576p and 1080i/50 ? And will it upconvert the frame rate to /30 or /60? I'm hoping someone here has been in a similar position or at least knows the answers.

And if you know of any forum where they would know the same answers for an LED/LCD screen bought in Canada/US, that would be a bonus

Thanks,
Alastair

Dan, I have the system on DHCP. That said, it doesn't work very well - trying to manage the system from the app results in about 1/4 of the time the system won't show up in the app. Trying to play SiriusXM works about the same, about 1/4 the time. Airplay works for a while, then stops, then starts, then stops... nothing across the network works perfectly. And now, as mentioned before, sometimes it locks up. Sometimes it locks up just powering up, sometimes it will lock up when I try to do anything network related. It is frustrating.

The resolutions of 576i and 576p are specifically mentioned while only 1080i is mentioned in the Owner's manual with upscaling to 1080p / 1080p/24Hz and to 4K/25/30/24 (X4000) and also to 4K/50/60 (X4100W).

I'm afraid I am familiar with your frustration. In over 25 years of working with computer networks I have never seen a network interface as fragile as the one in the X4000. In "fragile" I include primarily the logical system, although physical problems have been noted as well.

To set a "static" IP Address (DHCP off), save it; and come back to find it has reverted to a previous value is simply not acceptable.

I am anxious to test an X4100 and see if it has improved.

Well, try the Onkyo 818 then

Seriously, I'm not sure why AVRs are so flaky when it comes to their network stack. In the case of the X4000, the only symptoms I personally got was the network services becoming harder and harder to use (first the Favorites list as transmitted to the Denon app would constantly shift, making a selection impossible, then DLNA pushes would fail, and then all net services would become non-responsive). In that case, rebooting the X4000 (i.e. unplugging and re-plugging it) immediately solved the issue. Sure, it's a PITA. But on my Onkyo 818, some DLNA operations would crash the whole network stack (requiring the above solution) almost daily, so using the unit as a remote renderer was quite a risky proposition.

That's a shame considering how impressively well built is the Onkyo 818 (and also the X4000). If only a bit more care was taken with the software side of things, these devices could be so much more in my opinion.

Setting remote X4000 to turn on my Mitsubushi TV
yeah i'm a little late to the game , however,
in spite of the instructions on p 204 and 205 of the manual, and having the codes and opposable thumbs . . .
would anyone care to share or point me in the direction of a straight forward and working button pushing sequence
and yes its in the main area

How to program the Denon X4000 remote to control the TV

It's not obvious from the Owner's manual, but you will need to press/hold the "TV Audio + Setup" buttons on the remote until the 3 lights flash, then enter each of the 5 digit codes in the back of the Owner's manual one at a time until one works. If none of the "4" Mitsubishi TV codes works with your TV, consider a universal remote (eg. Harmony).

I didn't say the codes don't work,
I can't get a green light to blink for the TV and an intelligent/understandable sign/indication that it is time to enter the code(s)
I can get ALL Three to blink, at the same time and they do - twice-then blank
I can get the main/options to blink but its blinking the AVR
and the remote does not show a TV "only" button, yeah you can get "TV Audio"
so somewhere in all of that is a major SNAFU, yeah it could be me but . . .
which is why I specifically asked for the sequence, which should be what , 3 or so simple/combo button pushes.
that's as simple a request as I can make it . .

1. Press/hold "TV Audio" + "Setup"
2. Wait for 3 lights to flash
3. Release buttons
4. Enter 5 digit TV code

Hey i have a reliability question about the Denon and extended warranty. I actually picked up a AVR-X3000 for $540+tax at a local magnolia store within BB and picked up 4yrs of warranty for $80 as well. I've always owned Yamaha's the latest one being the RX-V673 receiver which is solid like a rock, but i keep hearing that Denon's have issues from time to time. I know forums usually only attract individuals when problems are involved so it may not be a good indicator but just wanted to get your opinions on the price i paid and reliability of the unit. And if you guys recommend keeping the 4yr parallel warranty on the unit.

Thanks in advance.

The AVR comes with a 3 year warranty and your credit card most likely will add the 4th year for free. Consider instead a Harmony remote. Your wife/girlfriend will thank you for it.
