Not working with 2013 and newer D+M models nor with Onkyo and Pioneer either.

Just got an Amazon Firestick. Just to quickly try it I got it up and running by plugging it into my TV so the sound currently just comes from the TV speakers.

Obviously I would like to ultimately run the audio through the X4000 and my 7.1 system. Before I pull everything out of the entertainment center in order to get to the back of the Denon, I was hoping to get some options on the best way to accomplish this.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

You may be able to use HDMI(ARC) to pass the Firestick audio back to the AVR otherwise, an optical cable would work as well.

Thanks. Sounds like the optical cable may be the easiest. I assume it would just go into the TV optical 1 on the back of the X4000. Would I need to switch the X4000 to a certain source to hear the Firestick audio if I did that.

I do have have the TV ARC HDMI open, but the ACR HDMI has a cable in it so I'm not sure what I even did there - but everything has been working.

Can I just followup on this. So I plug one end of the optical into the TV and one end into optical 1 on the X4000. What to I set the X4000 to hear the audio from the Firestick?

I guess where I get confused is currently, the Firestick is in the TV and the audio comes from the TV. But, if I turn the Denon on it obviously plays the audio for the source I have selected (cable, AppleTV, Bluray). So I can hear the audio from those sources but also see the video and hear the audio (through the TV speakers) at the same time.

I am just wondering how to set the X4000 so it plays the audio from the optical coming out of the TV while the video plays from the Firestick.

Horrible worded question I am sure, but sorry in advance.

The OPT1 input on the X4000 is labeled "TV Audio" so you select the "TV Audio" button on the remote.

Thanks, good to know. . . but actually I just plugged the Fire Stick into an empty HDMI, renamed the source to match, and video and audio work great.

A power surge or lighting nuked the HDMI output of my E300 taking the attached TV HDMI input with it - using the Optical Input from my TV now

Since my unit is out of warranty, is it possible to source a new HDMI/ Digital processor board for this unit? I'm more than skilled enough to replace it.

Anyone have an idea of the repair costs from a Denon service center?

You could contact Denon directly or check with the various authorized Denon parts distributors, although if available, likely to cost at least $300-$400 so much better served just upgrading to a more current model.

Thanks. Come Monday I'll try and get a price from some distributors. Maybe even buy a used broken one (depending on what's broken) for the part.

Since, I'm not getting 4K any time soon, I don't really want to pay for the newest models with HDCP 2.2, etc.

Then again, I'm looking over the Service Manual diagrams of the board and then my unit, and it seems Denon was too cheap to even put on the ESD protection diodes on the HDMI ports. The PCB is ready for them, but they're not utilized.

Hi all,

I have a couple of questions concerning the ip-scaler function as it relates to 1080p/24. I am confused as to the output of the X4000, given a couple of scenarios:

1) The source is 24Hz, and the AVR ip-scaler is set to "1080p" (not 1080p:24Hz). Does the AVR convert the 24Hz input to 60Hz via 3:2 pull-down for output?

2) The source is 24Hz, the AVR ip-scaler is set to "Auto," but the display does not support 24Hz (or does, but is disabled in the display settings). Does the AVR "see" that the display cannot take 24Hz, and automatically "downconvert" the signal back to 60Hz prior to output?

Thanks!

Peace... Vader
