Yes, that's the one. Good luck and please share the outcome. Do it twice if you need too.

Even though it is a 7-year old model the only thing that is "outdated" is there is no "Audio return Channel" (ARC) on any of the HDMIs, does anyone know of an aftermarket option that might work?

Huh? All current TVs have an optical audio output and the 4308 has (3) optical inputs.

out of date?

Does the 4308 Denon still compete against all the new 2013 amps and their technology in terms of video processing and audio quality and options??? I feel like mine is getting a bit old, but I just dont have the knowledge base to know if its outdated or not compared to the new amps. Looking for suggestions and comments.
Thank you

Perry

Video chip is certainly outdated, but Audyssey XT is still the 3rd highest available version second only to XT32 which would be an upgrade in audio quality.

Well I finally got some time (takes a while to re-input) and after 2 resets, everything works fine now. Thanks for the help.

Hello , i'm from Brazil and this is my first message . I attend a Brazilian forum for 10 years and plan on increasing my knowledge and share my experiences I decided to sign up here.
I ask early apologize for any error or written vacabulario because 60% ​​use google translator time.

Well, I have a problem between my Denon AVR 4308 and Oppo BDP 93, bought this week the Oppo used from a friend with the intention of having HD audio and 3D image in the same player. Before had a pioneer BDP 140 and he could not HD audio for not having two HDMI outputs , this was the biggest reason for the up

The settings is: Oppo HDMI 1 Output connect to TV for 3D image and the HDMI 2 output in Denon for HD audio.

The problem happens in 3D image, the image on the TV blinks 4 times before stabilizing , it is very annoying.

I found that the problem is between Denon and Oppo because when I turn off HDMI input of the receiver the image does not flash on TV, and when I do the reverse process the problem returns .

Surely the problem is caused because the Denon not be compatible with 3D and strange signal causing interference in the HDMI 1 this on TV. Ideal would be that the Oppo only send audio to the HDMI 2 , but did not find how to do this .

Someone suggests an alternative to eliminate this problem ? Using optical output does not solve because I want hd audio ( dts hd master , Dolby TrueHD , etc .. ) is there any configuration I know nothing ?
I am afraid that these image flashes affect the TV and the receiver.

Ps. Already reseted Denon microprocessor and both devices are with the latest firmware version.

Already changed the HDMI cable position.

The Oppo is able to send audio only to HDMI 2. Set it up that way and your problem is gone.

Help - my 4308CI may have kicked the bucket. Any suggestions as to a comparable replacement in the Denon family? Maybe the AVR-X5200W?? Or comparable outside the Denon family?
decarden is online now
