^^ A fast blinking light (ie. 2x/sec) would indicate either a loose speaker wire from one post touching another post or maybe amp failure while a slower blinking (ie. once/2 secs) would be a ventilation issue. Is the unit hotter than normal to the touch? As I suggested in my previous post, if you purchased from an authorized dealer and used a credit card, check with the card issuer to see if they will add a 4th year of warranty if you need to go that route.
The Denon X2000 may be a better buy unless you need the extra features on the X3000.
Although HDMI 1.3 can generally pass 720p/1080i 3D video (eg. cable/sat box), it won't pass full 1080p 3D video (eg. Blu Ray), so your best option is a dual HDMI 1.4 BDP as most lower cost HDMI splitters (eg.
The current Denon successor to your 4306, the flagship 4520CI is a 9CH AVR which can expand to 11CH with an external amp and also has a Zone 4 (HDMI) monitor output for the bedroom TV. As you plan on the AVR initially powering all 9CH in the main zone, an external amp would also be required to power the patio speakers. For a limited time Denon has reduced the MSRP of the 4520CI inside your budget.
Either use a Redmere cable from Monoprice or purchase a Monoprice HDMI extender.If the Denon Link 4 cable is connected from the BDP to the AVR and the proper DIgital setting is made as noted below, the DLINK light should appear on the front panel display.
Any set of analog inputs on the 3200 should work. Don't forget to power on Zone 3 and also note that HDMI audio from an independent source will not pass to Zone 3, rather only Zone 2. http://www.avsforum.com/t/1465528/the-official-2013-denon-e-series-x-series-avr-model-owners-thread-faq/0_100#post_23134210
On the X1000 (as is the case with the vast majority of AVRs on the market today) only analog connected sources and network sources will pass to Zone 2 (although USB should also pass to Zone 2 as well). You would have to upgrade to the X3000 to get HDMI audio to Zone 2 unless using the "All Zone Stereo" setting which will play the same source playing in the main zone to Zone 2 as well regardless of whether HDMI or not.
The original 5 speakers will always use the Audyssey EQ unless you manually disengage Audyssey. What you likely read was that if you have 9 speakers connected and have run Audyssey on all 9 speakers, then if you decide to use the extra 4 speakers for Zone 2 and Zone 3, the EQ will no longer be applied to those 4 speakers, rather only the original 5.
