Likely yes. For Airplay you may want to consider purchasing an AppleTV which would also allow streaming of video as well.

You could try doing a soft reset by unplugging the power cord for 10 minutes. Could be the video card is going bad. Does it happen with video source devices?

Although that is a 6 year old model, it still has 3 HDMI inputs so use them, not optical.

The 2312CI can display the GUI on a 1080p signal just as can the newer models so more likely an issue with the PC; however, only the X3200W and higher models can display the GUI over 4k video.

Keep in mind that as a 5CH model, the NR1506 will not be either Atmos or DTS:X capable. Stores will likely have sales the usual timeframe ....around Thanksgiving.

Zone 2 HDMI is exactly what the name implies ..... it can pass a totally independent HDMI signal than what is playing in the main zone, or it can pass the same signal as is playing in the main zone.

That would be "upmixing" and you simply select either the MOVIE or MUSIC buttons on the remote and select that surround mode that has " + Dolby Surround." :)

Agree with KidHorn in that there's no reason to purchase an external amp until you've had the opportunity to determine if the A3050 internal amps are not sufficient for your needs.

Understood, although again, unsure as to why as it will serve you no purpose. You can purchase a replacement mic directly from Denon or for about $25 on eBay.

Like the Denon X4200W, it is a 7CH AVR that will require adding a 2CH external amp for a 5.1.4 setup. Also, the A2050 is more comparable to the X4200W feature wise.

A backup file is mostly gibberish so won't be of any use to you. Unless you run Audyssey, you will be unable to use Dynamic EQ.

Those speakers are not likely to perform any better with an external amp. I'd hold off on that purchase until you have purchased the AVR.

If they're close enough to you, straight down may be just fine. However, it's your setup, so try both ways and select the configuration you prefer.
