*OFFICIAL* Denon AVR 1910/790 Owner's Thread - Page 17

post #481 of 9287
Thank you guys appreciate the quick turnaround.

I am compairing it with my Panasonic all in one system which I am replacing and bass was pretty good on it. Also I have tried watching TV with prologic enagaged and ran some DVD's with dolby 5.1 audio. I don't have HD source currently so cannot test with HD audio.

Yes I have followed Audessey setup guide line by line several times since couple of days ago.
Bass is extremely low when DynEQ is not engaged but when I engage the DynEq it gets little better but still very low. The only thing I think which I couldn't go around was the sub's location, I have it in the corner but about 6inches away from both(back and sidewall) walls, which again in my opinion shouldn't matter that much in having close to no bass at aound 20db of volume level. Do I have to turn the volume up to reference level to really hear the bass??

My room is 15x20 and I have all 5 speakers monted on walls. Sub is sitting beside my TV stand. Hope this helps little in figuring out what else can I try.

Hey All - I was hoping to get some help on an issue with my new 1910. I would like to use my HDTV speakers (new speakers haven't arrived yet), but I can't seem to get sound to pass through the receiver via hdmi. I've set the HDMI Audio Out to TV on the receiver's menu but I still get no sound - any ideas? I am using hdmi cables from my cable box -> receiver -> hdtv. Thank you all in advance!

have you configured your cable box to output HDMI audio?

Hi Batpig, thanks for the quick reply. Yes, my cable box is configured. If I take the receiver out of the loop by running an hdmi cable directly to the tv, sound works!

Do you have the correct HDMI input selected for whatever cable source is being used? What is the front panel display indicating? What speaker input lights are lit on the left side of the display?

Yes, the correct input is selected...the video works, so I'm pretty sure the input is right.

And the rest of what I asked? Are you using a HDMI-DVI adapter?

Not at all. Hey, if the bouncer at the club does get a little "catty", who's gonna call him on it?

I too have a little hifreq hearing loss from standing in front of my amp in the "old time rocknroll" days. Perhaps that's why I prefer the "Audyssey Flat" curve, which doesn't roll off the highs. Give it a listen if you haven't tried it yet.

Not using a DVI adapter. The screen shows the following: HDMI Auto, PLII C. I've tried changing the surround mode, but none of them have an effect. Thank you again!

Yesterday wanted to watch a movie from PS3, 1910 and to the tv via HDMI, I was getting the same problem,

I had Video, but no sound.

Switched to Tuner, had sound
Switched to Cable had video and sound
Switched back to PS3 only video and still no sound.

did several things, such as unplugged the hdmi from PS3 and 1910 went into the menu checked severa stuff
switched receiver and Ps3 off and after had Video and Sound from Ps3.

What caused this I don't know and what activated I still don't know.

Your particular issue sounds more HDMI handshake related which can be resolved sometimes by powering up each of the components in a different order. His could be as well, although more than likely HDMI Control related.

Yes, I've tried with this setting both on and off, still no luck. If order of operations is important, what order do you suggest?
post #494 of 9287
Try both ways ... Sat--->1910--->TV and TV--->1910--->SAT

Still no luck! Any other ideas? Do any other settings affect the audio out?
post #496 of 9287
You should try and reset the microprocessor. I have found that this will help a lot of the unknown problems. It might just help in your case, who knows!
post #497 of 9287
does anyone know how much power this thing uses when in standby

The 790/1910 has this feature still??? I thought the 789/1909 were the last models to utilize that feature???

yea.

To answer your watts used question...if the 1910 is like the 1909 standby only uses 3 watts...Standby HDMI on uses 30 watts...
post #501 of 9287
are you talking about light indicators to show which channels are being used. if so then yea.
post #502 of 9287
Yeah what then??? The 7790/1910 does or does not have the lights???
post #503 of 9287
if its the lights i think it is, then yea it had the lights.
post #504 of 9287
OK thanks...The pictures don't show that on the 1910 but do on the 890...

Thanks, yeah I tried that too hoping it would work, but still no audio! Looks like I have to return this unit and get a replacement...crappy! Thanks for everyone's help!
post #506 of 9287
my 1910 is still in the mail. I cant check for sure. I cannot see why it wouldn't have it. Even my other cheap $300 HTIB has them.
post #507 of 9287
Denon cut costs on the 1910 and I suppose one of the things that got cut were the icons...If the 1910 had them I would imagine the picture of the unit would show as much...and it doesn't show any...

Good catch! Probably why lilbat23 never answered my question. The input and output speaker icons aren't there on the 1910!

What a shame though as those little buggers are quite helpful IMHO, especially when troubleshooting. Although they are still present on the higher 2010 models (2310/890, 3310, 4310).

Standby (HDMI Control - OFF) = 0.3 watt
Standby (HDMI Control - ON) = 30 watts
