Hello Ladies and Gents,
I'm new to this forum and this is my first post here. Unfortunately, I haven't found the answer to the problem I saw today with my Denon X4000 AVR stuff.
I'm running a configuration as follows:
Zone 1 - 5.1 set in living room
Zone 2 - second monitor (from older PC HDMI->DVI converter, speakers run only through a mini-jack in) + external stereo amp with two speakers powered by Zone 2 pre-amp output. External amplifier made by my myself
Zone 3 - master bathroom - stereo speakers powered by the Denon's internal amplifiers from Back Surround.
Now the case is that each zone plays the music from Network sources and everything is fine - zones 2 and 3 play stereo while the zone 1 plays 5.1 sound (All Channels stereo option). But when I try to play my Xbox360, it runs with sound only in Zone1 but Zone2 is only with the video but no sound. When I made at first the connection to Zone 2, the monitor used to play the video and the speakers in Zone 2 played all the sounds from the Xbox. But when I moved the PC monitor from living room (I put it there just for test), in the new location I could only get the video but no sound.
If I run the console and put the output to both zones (1 and 2), I got only the video, but in both zones there is no sound. If I turn off the zone 2, I can get the sound in the zone1, i.e. in the living room.
The weirdest thing is that even my wife noticed that everything worked fine during the tests but now it doesn't. I want to get these stereo speakers and external amp running the audio from Xbox as it was ok at the beginning.
Just FYI, I tried turning the audio options in Xbox to Digital Output and Digital 5.1, and I always rebooted the M$ brick. I also used the setup options in Zone2 to change the HDMI audio to PCM. And none of these have helped.
I have no idea what to do next because I know it was running at the beginning but now it doesn't. Should I make some sort of factory reset in Denon? I think it is something very obvious but I simply can't find the root problem.
I'm sorry if I made any language mistakes or my post is not clear. It's Saturday night and I'm a Polish heavy drinker, so...
