Is the VSX-44 better than my AVR-890?

Same level but 5 years newer and likely more features.

Well, so much for that. I opened the box, and there is a VSX-40 in the box, not a 44. I'm steaming right now.

Makes more sense as to why the price was so low being as it's a 4 year old model.

Someone pulled a fast one on them. When I took it back, we noticed all kinds of dust on the back of the unit, and the Best Buy inspection sheet that was in the box, said it was a VSX-44. The serial number on the sheet, didn't match the receiver either. I ended up grabbing a VSX-524-k for $199, and the audio is working perfect with the AFTV. Thanks again for all the info.

So the problem is that if it's going to play a *different* source, it can't be HDMI.

Was this changed for the 2014 X2100W?

Thanks again.

Correct. And no, rather the X3000/X3100W are the lowest models with this feature.

I tried doing a quick search on this and came up with a sea of craziness so figured folks on here might know. I have a Denon x4000 powering my media room projector (main out) and speakers. Media room sounds and looks great. I then hooked up the other cloned output (not separate zone 2 out) to my living room tv and get no sound on it unless I turn the Denon AVR off since I have the passthrough enabled for sound. Outputs and Inputs are all using HDMI.

1. Can I get sound on both outputs when the AVR is on? Basically I want to be able to have the game on the living room tv and media room with audio in both.
2. If not, I assume I will need to hook my 2nd source cable box to the zone 2 output in order to get the sound in the living room?

1. Nope. HDMI Audio on main zone outputs can be set to either "TV" or "AVR" but not both.
2. Yup.
