*OFFICIAL* Denon AVR 1910/790 Owner's Thread - Page 302

post #9031 of 9287
I have Fibe Bell tv and when I had cable, there was no lag on the sound when changing channels. Then I switched to Fibetv and since then there's a lag. My nephew has a Yamaha receiver and has no lag when changing channels. I even upgraded the HDMI to a network Hdmi and no luck.

Anyone familiar with this problem, Here in Canada Fibe tv comes through the phone line( internet) I don't know what's called else where.

thanks

Try setting your cable box to a fixed resolution (eg. 1080i), otherwise consider bypassing the AVR and go HDMI straight to TV.
post #9033 of 9287
The cable box is at 1080, even tried the 720 same issue. I like to watch tv films on 5.1 not surround, that's why I bought the Home theater for.

Connect HDMI to the TV and optical from the box to the AVR for surround audio. In order to resolve the HDMI handshake you're now experiencing (which is very common with cable/sat boxes in general), you either need to go back to the cable box model that produced no issues or bypass the HDMI connection to the AVR.

conected the Cable box to tv via Hdmi and there's no lag in the sound.

Ok, the denon is lagging in the sound due to handshake of the hdmi, but the image has no lag, and my nephew has same cable box and his Yamaha does not lag in the sound.

with my old provider I had no lag on the sound.

Looks like I have to live with this lag. I don't plan to have more wires.

Is there a place where I can turn off the upscale in the Receiver, someone told me that the upscale may cause the 2 seconds delay in the sound. tia

Hi frankmar, go into Input Setup and then Video.
post #9038 of 9287
Thanks, I tried it and it no change. This drives me crazy. I know the problem is with the Denon.

Check your TV display settings to see how many video processing options you may have enabled (motion interpolation, etc.) - these may introduce some lag as well. At the very least, you'll have eliminated one possible source of problem.

Anyone using their receiver to do Pro Logic IIz? Basically a 5.1 setup with 2 additional height speakers above the mains. From personal experience, I've never seen or heard anyone do this before but am intrigued by the idea, especially since I don't have placement to utilize a 7.1 and am already wired for a 5.1.
post #9041 of 9287

You'll find mixed reviews from posts in these threads ... likely split about 50/50 .... some like it while others say it doesn't add much. If you've already got the extra speakers, might as give it a try for yourself. smile.gif

as a follow-up, the helpfulness of the PLIIz effect will depend greatly on how high you can get the front height speakers. The more vertical separation you can achieve between your fronts (L/C/R) and height speakers the more pronounced the height effect will be.

My house was prewired for 5.1 ceiling speakers. I was planning to use the front ceiling speakers for the PL IIz... good idea?
post #9044 of 9287

Sure, after all they're there. Try it and see if they make a difference for you. Although ideally, front height speakers would be pointed at the main listening position, so may not have as good of an effect if pointing straight down over the TV.
post #9045 of 9287
I did another test and noticed that in my PVR, if I set audio as Stereo, there's no lag but I lose my 5.1 and if I set it as surround sound, I get the lag and the 5.1.

Hi folks, 1st post here.

Trying to connect notebook to 790 to projector without sucess. Firstly connected hdmi from notebook to amp and the only thing that came up was hdmi 1 no signal.
This refers to the hdmi connection between amp and projector, nothing else was visible, no menus or anything
Next tried vga to component and the same as above
When I view bd the signal goes through to the projector perfectly
Tried altering the external monitor settings on the note book to no avail

I've been at this for the last couple of days and Iam stumped, would really appreciate your help
Cheers Dunc

Hi dunkymac, does it get video if direct connect from notebook to projector?
post #9048 of 9287
yes it does. If I were to direct connect to the projector and feed the audio through the amp would I be getting lipsnc issues?
post #9049 of 9287

probably not, and there is an Audio Delay setting that is set per input which you can use to restore sync if you need to.

unfortunately passing the video from a laptop through an HDMI repeater (like a receiver) is frequently an iffy proposition. The VGA>component will not work because VGA is an RGB output and the component video colorspace is different. You need a converter for that to work as the AVR and likely the display's component video inputs cannot be configured for RGB input.

Snow on Denon 790

 

I have been having intermittent snow when watching BluRay discs. It starts as fleeting horizontal bands. The snow gradually becomes more frequent until video sync is lost completely and the display is blacked out. I have unaffected audio throughout the process.

 

- I have upgraded the firmware on my Samsung BDP3600 to latest version (vers # unknown)

- Returned 790 to Denon for firmware upgrade (vers. 0.89)

- Replaced HDMI cables with high quality cables.

 

Also, when I bypass the receiver entirely and connect BDP to TV, the snow never occurs. I have no other video source, so I can only comment on the BD source.

 

Has anyone had this problem? Any recommendations?

All of a sudden, I am getting no sound on any Zone 1 device. However, Zone 2 works fine. The display reads "Stereo" in all cases. I have checked the inputs and they seem to be correct. Also, in what may be an unrelated issue, when I go to Menu, option 3 (Auto Setup) does not display. Any ideas?
post #9054 of 9287
Try blowing some compressed air into the headphone jack.
post #9055 of 9287
That worked- thanks!

Denon AVR790 No longer getting digital Opt2 signal on Sat/Cable (have it hooked up to switch that goes into roku, tv etc).
It says auto but then defaults to analog.

Also no longer getting digital Opt1 signal on VCR/Ipod hooked up to airportexpress router. It does not even
say auto, just defaults to analog. Checked input menu and opt1 is selected for that input.

This was working yesterday. Wonder if I accidentally pressed something on the remote? Or did something
blow in the receiver?

Looked at both optical cords and ends show red before plugged into receiver. Receiver opt1 and opt2 input
holes are dark.

Any ideas?
thanks in advance

Hi bluen, try bypassing the optical switch with direct connect. And try cycling Input Mode button on remote to "Digital".
post #9058 of 9287
thanks, worked!!!
post #9059 of 9287
More questions about using the remote:

The display on the receiver is off while the unit is still on. This never happened before. How do I get it to stay on?

If I use the quick select buttons on the remote, how do I make sure the mode remains on digital?


I must say this remote is confusing, I was doing better when it was lost...

Thanks.

Hi bluen, its possible you may set surround mode to "Pure Direct" and enabled it. Try pressing the "Pure" button at the back of the remote.
