I just purchased a Denon 1713 and other than dvd movies all sources play just the two front speakers.. HD TV music channels and CD's. I have try useing HDMI cables as well as optical cables and nothing changes. Is it normal that the display on the receiver goes blank after a few minutes and I have to shut it off and hit the power button to get a display again? From reading post on here I have gone into the setting and change them to auto.I did use Audyssey to set up the system.

Hi BlueBear03, possible you enabled Pure Direct mode.

How do you change modes. I don't see anything about that on a web search or on the receiver or remote

Should have a "Pure" button on the remote.

Thank You, It has 5.1 in either game or movie now and 2.1 for music or pure. Is there a way to get the display to either stay on or light up without changing something?

The front panel display should only go dark when you're using the PURE DIRECT surround mode (which isn't recommended).

It goes black in any mode after a few seconds. It worked correctly when I first put the system together last week. Is there a sleep mode?

That should only happen with PURE mode enabled, otherwise the front panel should be either ON or OFF ... anything in between is likely a defect issue ...

I guess I will have to print out the instructions and learn all the buttons. I hit dimmer once and all is well now. I appreciate everyone’s help.

Thanks Chris
