*Official* Denon AVR 2309CI/889 Thread - Page 97

post #2881 of 3184
well, the thing is that if you are going to use ANY processing then the signal will have to re-digitized in the Denon anyway. So at that point you might as well stick to the digital input.

if you want to hear the "pure" analog signal from the external DAC, you must set the Denon to PURE DIRECT mode (using a regular Stereo RCA analog input) or use the MultiCH analog inputs.

I'm trying to set my rear channel to large in my 7.1 setup, but the only option I get is small or none. Help?

Has this always been the case? You might want to reset the microprocessor (p. 64).

I have a Denon AVR-2309CI and was trying to get the "on Screen Display" to show the volume level... I tried to go through the manual setup shown in the owners manual, but that is all "on" but still will not show the volume.

Also, has anyone had this issue... when I turn my TV and Cbox on it shows "no signal" till the time I turn the receiver ON each morning... after this it will let me keep the receiver off and just trun the TV and CBox on and it gets a signal.

I have all equipment going through the receiver and and HDMI going from receiver to TV.

THX for any help.

Sorry, but volume overlay on HDMI video was not implemented until the 2310. Some TVs will overlay the Denon's volume but that would be a feature specific to the TV itself. The issue with the cable box is likely just an HDMI handshake issue related to your cable box. If you cannot resolve it, then just connect the cable box HDMI directly to the TV with an optical cable from the cable box to the 2309 for those times you want surround audio.

This is going to be a noob question, as I've been out of the loop for awhile.

I have the 2309ci, but was looking in to upgrading if needed, but is there anything major in the new models that is worth upgrading to? Is there newer codecs, or do I still have them all? Is the sound quality much higher and worth the upgrade?

Thanks for any help.
post #2887 of 3184

Not really no ... just HDMI 1.4/3D video and if you don't plan on going 3D then no reason to upgrade. Codecs haven't changed in 5 years. The 2309 uses the same version of Audyssey MultEQ which is in the 2310 and 2311. The 2312 will be upgraded to the higher version Audyssey MultEQ XT, but certainly not worth upgrading to if you don't need any HDMI 1.4/3D features.

Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum.

I've got the avr2309 and just purchased the new Samsung 64" 3d plasma. I am new to the 3d and have a few questions:

I tried to a 3d movie through mediasenter on ps3 and it looked great, but is this "real" 3d? Would it be better on a receiver that supports hdmi 1.4 and 3d pass through?

So far the only thing I miss is the arc feature from the tv. Is this the only difference between 2309 and 2311/12?

I also miss the option of viewing tv from my cable box(connected to the vcr hdmi), and listening to my iphone(connected to "sound in", black and white jack on the back). Does anyone know if this is possible?

Thanks in advance!

I'd be interested in the answer to this as well. My Directv received does not detect my Sharp LED 3D tv as 3d capable when passed through the Denon. I assumed that meant I wouldn't be able to do 3d through the Denon, however the PS3 worked fine for Killzone 3 3d and did in fact detect 3d capability.

Is this received 3D capable after all? Is there such a thing as lesser quality 3d if your received doesn't support "full"?

The 3D video you're watching may not be "full" 1080p 3D. Athough some formats are known to be able to pass through, most will not on the 2309 as it is only HDMI 1.3. Games which are generally only 720p will pass easily as will cable/sat 3D as neither is full 1080p 3D.

There are several ways to listen to your iPod while watching TV ...

(1) Connect the ipod to the VCR analog inputs and while watching TV, change the INPUT MODE setting to "analog" vice "Auto." This only works for the ipod of course.

(2) Connect the HDMI cable from the cable box to the TV with an optical cable to the 2309. This option allows you to listen to any source connected to the 2309 while watching TV.

(3) Connect a component video cable and optical cable from the cable box to the 2309 (instead of HDMI). Then with the iPod selected, change the Video Select setting to the source name you are using for the cable box (ie. this feature will not work with HDMI video sources).

I have tried resetting several times now. Even left the 2309 unplugged overnight. While holding the input and speaker buttons in I am turning the "power" button on and I still have the same problem. Sound cutting in and out while watching TV (cable). I was able to watch a DVD last night though. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Bob/335, cable box is well known for audio drop out. Try setting the cable box audio output as stereo instead of dolby digital to see if thecable box is the cause of the problem.
post #2893 of 3184
Thanks for the reply but I don't know how to do what you are saying. I don't think my cable box has stereo settings.

I have had this SAME problem a few times over the past few years since I've had this receiver. I have always remedied this problem with the reset procedure for the 2309.

I'll look to see if there are any settings like you are talking about.
post #2894 of 3184

Set the cable box Dolby Digital setting to OFF and you'll get stereo.
post #2895 of 3184
I shut everything off and unplugged every power cord and HDMI cable. Wited half an hour and plugged everything in and turned on and it all works. Thanks for the suggestions. Not sure what it was in the end but it works. (Miss my old stereo receiver!)
post #2896 of 3184
I have a 2309 with a 5.1 setup. Has been working fine but the other day I noticed there is no sound from the front right and left speakers. Center, rear and SW work fine. I tried all inputs, TV, tuner, DVD and no sound from the speakers. Connections are OK, haven't touched those. I tried the Audessey channel level check in the menu and there is no sound from the front speakers.

Sounds like a receiver problem to me. I don't think there is anything in the settings that would turn the front channels off. Would a microprocessor reset do anything? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.
post #2897 of 3184

More than likely what has happened is the SPEAKERS button on the front panel was pressed and changed the front speakers from "Front A" to "Front B." Try pressing the button again until "A" is displayed. Otherwise, your next step would be a microprocessor reset (p. 64) which would reset all settings to their factory default settings and require you to run AUTO SETUP again.
post #2898 of 3184
I haven't posted for a long time, been very happy with the 2309 since the bug fix. My question is can I use the tone controls to boost the bass on my Zone 2 speakers, leave it set permanently and not affect zone 1? If so point me in the right direction. Thanks for any help.
post #2899 of 3184

Sorry, but not with your model. The 2809 and higher models allow for seperate bass/treble control of Zone 2 speakers.

I have an AVR-889 that will power on but the display will not come on and i get no sound from it. Does anyone know if this could just be blown fuse or is it something else? Thank you.
post #2902 of 3184
Could be a blown fuse. Try resetting the microprocessor (p. 55) first to see if that resolves the issue. If not, as you're likely out of warranty, pop to top and see if you can find a blown fuse which can be replaced. Also try blowing compressed air into the headphone jack or insert/remove a headphone plug into the jack a few times. Dust on the jack contacts on older models is known to cause the audio not to play.
post #2903 of 3184
Is there any way to set up this receiver so that when you're viewing something in 5.1 and not 7.1, the rear channels are used and not the sides?
post #2904 of 3184
Sure. Unplug the wires to the "side" speakers.

second, where do I say that OSD doesn't go over HDMI? what model AVR do you have? In general the OSD will show up over HDMI no problem. So I think your question is a non issue.

I have a 2309CI. If I turn on the AVR and put the TV on input 7 nothing is on the screen. I tried a Blue ray but now have no HDMI thru put. I have checked and do not have any HDMI output (I do not have the L/R speakers conneted to the AVR).
post #2906 of 3184
so to be clear, you have an HDMI device plugged into the Denon, and then an HDMI cable running to the TV (doesn't really matter what number input it is on the TV). And you are NOT getting any video at all?

have you EVER gotten HDMI video throughput with an HDMI source? Is it only your BDP or is it all sources?

Right, w Alwways wroked until I started with speaker change over when I unplugged the C-100 (which are still un plugged) I accidently knocked the HDMI out of the output.
When I opened the back cover of the Remote and hit Menu A "auto start up lit up" so I hit return and turned off the Denon. Then I plugged the HDMI back in and tried again. No luck. repeated several times. Then tried with DVD which is plugged into HDMI 1.....no luck. Back to Blue Ray in HDMI 2 vdp

No luck. Wiggled both ends of the HDMI .....no luck Can it be that because I do not have the L/R C 100s connected yet be my problem?Could the Amp assign be screwed up? All sources
post #2908 of 3184
amp assign or any other speaker/ausio setting is totally irrelevant to HDMI video.

since the problem started when you knocked the cable out accidentally, I would start there. Double and triple check all the connections, make sure you are plugged in where you think you are plugged in, etc. And also check the cable in case something got damaged when it got knocked out.

Ok I just checked and althouth everything looks ok it is NOT OK.

I plugged the denon into TV hdmi 6 and changed the input and the blue ray appeared so the HDMI socket on the TV is damaged. Have any idea how to fix it? I tried with a new HDMI cable but no luck.
I hate to have to go buy a AB switch splitter as they suck.
post #2910 of 3184
sorry, I am not a TV repairman! that sucks!

you could also switch the cable box output to component video, there won't be any video quality difference for 720p/1080i TV broadcasts.
