First week newbie here and first time posting in this particular thread. After a lot of 2013-2014 Denon X and S series model/feature/price deliberation I finally made up my mind yesterday on what I wanted/needed and ordered a new X3000 at a great price. With any luck the receiver will be delivered to me tomorrow (Xmas Eve). Looking forward to unboxing it and getting it all set up.
On a sidenote... I really appreciate all the terrific info that gets posted here in these Denon AVR threads - great stuff.
Cheers

Haha, that did it. I swear I did that already, but maybe I didn't wait long enough after unplugging it. Thanks!

So for some reason my denon avr-x4000 has been acting up lately, every once in a while I will turn the receiver on and no picture will show up on my tv. I can fix the situation when this happens by simply unplugging the power cable and plugging it back in however I was just curious if anyone knew why this is happening? The receiver is only a couple weeks old if that helps.

There are some odd bugs in the x4000. Several people, including me, have reported that periodically the unit goes into protection mode for no apparent reason (asuch as shorted speaker wires or overheating). I have had three occasions when I turned it on and there was no audio from any source; powering off and on again fixed this.

I have an x2000 but I can`t get any picture when I connect it into the dedicated 4K input (HDMI 5) of my Philips 65PFL9708. I have the upscaler set @ 4K. I get everything perfectly when I connect the AVR to 1080p inputs (HDMI 1-4).

The dedicated 4K input on the Philips is HDMI 1.4. I can`t get picture whether I turn the scaler on or off.

What happens when the source is connected directly to the TV? What is the source video resolution being passed to the AVR? What is the Video Output resolution of the AVR for that source (Auto/1080p/1080p24/4k)? Try them all.

Not necessarily -- any UPnP/DLNA server will do the job. The Denon AVRs can act as a UPnP media renderer as well as a UPnP client.

The BubbleUPnP Android app can act as a UPnP client, a UPnP server *and* a UPnP control point. So it can fetch media on any UPnP server, including itself, and send it to any UPnP media renderer, in particular your AVR.

WMP is only one of the compatible UPnP servers out there.

What he said, and then some! The trickiest parts here are coming to terms with what can or can't actually be done with all the various pieces involved. Some devices do not do as good a job as you think they should. That and the terminology isn't entirely clear. Thank the X-windows folks for the never-ending confusion about what is or isn't a "server". Some devices can be both, some do differently crappy jobs of either (or both).

So while you "should" be able to do X, Y and Z, you find all kinds of annoying little bugs along the way.

ALL of which get magnified 10-fold when you unleash using these 'features' upon your wife, children or guests...

I do look forward to the hope that I'll be able to configure the X3000 to do 'some' of this. But I've yet to determine if it'll have a decent WAF.

Works great to stream to my Denon X2000 from my Android devices (Moto G, Nexus 7) or as a control point for a media server.
you guys seem to be the experts with bubbleupnp so I am wondering. I have downloaded one song and one video to my Samsung GS5 with the Google play but I can not seem to find in the bubbleupnp library. then how do I sen them to my X4000. Once I tackel that I will try to set up a server.

Philips is the TV. I can`t even see the GUI when I connect x2000 to HDMI 5.

Well the source is a PS3, but am I not supposed to see the GUI of the x2000 regardless of source?

Please answer my previous questions for any additional assistance. Thank you. Also, set the "Deep Color Output" setting on the PS3 to OFF.

The trick is to find where on your phone's filesystem the actual files are. In BubbleUPnP, in the library section, you can select Media, then Filesystem to browse your phone's filesystem. Now if you don't know where to look it will be very hard to find your files just by browsing around.

For example, I store my music files on an external SD card in a folder which is located in /mnt/extSdCard/Music. Google Play music files should be in /sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.music/cache/music.

Note that the files may also be available through the "Music" tab of the local media player if BubbleUPnP managed to find them.

Since it's a hassle to navigate in a deep location like this every time, it's possible to make a location one of your bookmarked locations, accessible in a single click. When you see a folder that you'd like to bookmark, press the three-dot icon at the end of the line and select "Bookmark".

Hope this helped...

Any Rumors for a "Spotify Connect" Firmware Update

I just got an X3000 recently and was bummed to learn that only the newer x100w models have Spotify Connect.

Does anyone think they'll update the x000 models?
