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.

My X4000 receiver has arrived and needs much more time then I have available most weeknights after work I'm sure. In preparation for "the big move" I thought I'd ask for a little input. This is to be solely a HT room receiver so advanced output options I'm not concerned with. The watching or playing a game while listening to music from another source does intrigue me though so I will learn that trick. This will be running a 7.1 system of all Polk. The RC85i front, 255c-ls center, RC80i surrounds and rear, the sub is a PSW110. All set to small as always but with such a good tuning program inside what are suggestions for cross over?

I have the X4000. I have three TV's I want to run off it. Two TV's I want to play sound out the speakers attached to the AVR that is located in the same room as the two TV's. My question is, I want to just want to send the source to the third TV and play the sound out of the TV. Do I just hook the third TV to Zone 2 HDMI out? Do I than just turn Zone 2 on when I want to watch that TV?

Thsnks,
Ken

Run Audyssey, then afterwards change any large speakers back to small. Also any large speaker will have a default 40hz crossover so you'll probably want to raise those to 60 or 80hz. Everything else just leave as Audyssey sets it.

Side note but you'll probably want to upgrade the sub and/or add a second sub at some point. The PSW110 is pretty mediocre for a dedicated HT.

Correct, that's the function of Zone 2 HDMI. It's an independent matrix output intended to let you share sources with another HDMI receiver or display in a different room.

And if I have a TV and some speakers in another room on Monitor 2 / Zone 2, is that volume control independent of the main zone? Basically, can two people use this without changing each other's volumes?

I'm also not sure if you can run Audyssey on Zone 2, so those speakers would have no EQ?

Otherwise, I'm about to pull the trigger on the X3000.

1. Yes. Zone 2 volume is independent from main zone volume.
2. Correct. Audyssey only works on main zone.

I ordered and received my AVR-4000 on New Years Eve. I've set it up and ran Audyssey. All is fine, but I'm having one "issue" I can't figure out. When I want to change the listening mode, I hit the corresponding button on the remote. The sound stops for a moment (as if the mode changes) and the display on the receiver blinks, but the mode stays the same. Doesn't matter if it is on a music or movie mode. Same results. I then connect my Denon App on my cellphone (Note Edge) and I can chose any of the available modes. music stops for a split second, mode changes, and display on AVR corresponds to the mode chosen on my phone.

Bad remote? Or issue with receiver?

The "Modes" remember whatever sound-field mode you had it in previously IIRC.

So, select "Movie", and then select the desired sound-field mode you want associated with "Movie" (press and hold the MOVIE button to change modes). Then select "Music", and then select whatever sound mode you prefer for Music (press and hold the MUSIC button to change modes).

Now when you recall "Movie" mode, it will recall that last sound-field setting you selected while in Movie mode. Hope I remembered correctly

Yes, the mode will stay the same unless you change the mode by pressing/holding the MOVIE button which will then display all of the available surround modes.
