post #4951 of 5195
Jdsmoothie -

I had made a post on the previous page explaining an issue I'm having with the (I think) HDMI ports on my 1610. This characteristics are a "blown speaker" sound, primarily when I play CD's through my PS3. I have reset the microprocessor per your instructions, rerun Audyssey twice, all to no avail. I really only notice this while playing CD's but I do that a lot, so it's really frustrating. At other insight or points?

Thanks,
Matt

I thought you resolved the issue by setting the AVR to STEREO? No?
post #4953 of 5195
Nope, that's not doing it now. :-(

You said you raised the speaker crossovers to 80hz, but you also need to change them from LARGE to SMALL in order for the sub to fire. Ensure ALL speakers are set to SMALL.
post #4955 of 5195
^^Ok, Ill do that tonight. Im 99% sure they're under the correct settings, but they may have gotten jacked up when I reset the Microprocessor. I wish the Denon menu would show up on my TV, I hate that I have to use the Denon's screen as the menu.

After running AUTO SETUP, if the AVR sets the speaker crossovers to 40hz, it also set them to LARGE, so the crossover actually has not impact unless the sub setting is changed to LFE+MAIN (which is not recommended). Rather much better to simply set the speaker to SMALL and raise the crossover up to either 60hz or 80hz, whichever you prefer.

Also, your menu display issue got passed over for the audio related issue. What devices to you have connected and have you tried replacing the HDMI cable from the AVR to the TV?

My setup current is:

PS3 via HDMI
Xbox 360 via component
Fisher turntable via phono line in
Time Warner cable box via HDMI

And no, I haven't changed the HDMI cable from ps3 to avr. I'll do that tonight and report back. Thanks for the help. Oh, I'll also verify that the speaker settings are setup correctly.
post #4958 of 5195
Ok, my settings were at:

L,R Speaker Size: Small - 80hz x-over
Center: n/a
Rears: Small - 80hz x-over
Subwoofer: Yes

Mode: LFE

SW Crossover: 80Hz

Note I suggested changing the HDMI cable from the "AVR" to the "TV" not from the PS3 to the AVR. So you're not getting the menu display from any of the sources? Also note there is no Phono line in, rather only analog inputs.
post #4960 of 5195
Good catch, my bad...turntable via analog input.

Ill change both of the HDMI cables.

To be clear, the speakers break up under higher noises, not the lower bass-y notes. Thanks for the help.

Finally spoke with Denon themselves. Im still under 2-year warranty and the guy at Denon agreed that this is something completely not right. Ill be taking it to the local service center on Monday and getting it repaired.

To follow up, this was not a Denon issue. The default volume on my PS3 was set to +4 somehow. All I had to do was turn that down and it seems to have fixed the issue. Woohoo!

Great! No repair required. Thanks for reporting back.

Hello guys

I have a most annoying problem with my AVR-1610. In movies I have good sound from all my speakers except my center, I have a 5.1 system, (Dynavoice Challenger M-65 EX and a XTZ subwoofer).

I have done the speaker configurations a few times and the settings seems to be good but as soon I watch a movie I have to turn up the volume quite a bit to hear what´s being said.

I watch movies trough a PS3 system.

Appreciate any help
post #4965 of 5195
There's a button you can push which cycles through all the gains on each speaker including the subwoofer.

The channel level is the button. See what that says and cycle to until you get to the center channel.

In addition to using the "CH Level" button on the remote to bump up the center channel a few db to suit your preference, also ensure the center speaker is pulled out (if stuck inside a cabinet) to the edge as well as angled up/down as necessary to be pointing directly at your head when seated in the #1 mic position (ie. main listening position). If you do make any speaker placement adjustments, be sure to run AUTO SETUP again.
post #4967 of 5195
Hi

Great tip about raising the center with the CH Level button, I have it at +7,5 now and now I hear what´s going on =)

My center speaker is positioned above my 50” television on a slight tilting downwards the sofa so it is clear from any obstacles.

A new questing pops in my head now, should I re-run the auto setup once more or will it just scale down the center adjustments I just made?

Really thankful for all help already received from you guys =)

Making channel level adjustments doesn't require rerunning AUTO SETUP, rather only adding new speakers or repositioning the current ones would.
post #4969 of 5195
Auto setup is for distance only, just from my memory, don't quote me.

If you find the dialogue weak, just use channel adjustment, at least that's what I do.

Sorry, can't resist quoting you ;-). Not true A.S. determines distance, level, multiband EQ, phase and depending on the level of Audessey in the Denon sets a host of sub characteristics. Also x-overs, LFE cutoff, speaker size and I'm sure a few other things are set as well that I have forgot about.

Batpig and JDSmoothie are for sure rolling their eyes and can chime in if I missed something or called something the wrong thing.

I just bought a new TV and now I have a problem with the receiver. Before I switched TV's when I would turn everything off for the night and then turn on just the TV in the morning the receiver would be on the input it was on when i turned it off now the receiver defaults to the TV input and I get no signal on my screen. I have to turn on the receiver and change it from the TV input back to sat/cable. I also loose sound every so often when just watching TV normally. It just cuts out and i have to either turn the receiver on and off again or just leave it on.
post #4972 of 5195

This occurs because you have HDMI-CEC (Anynet+) on the TV enabled so disable it as the ARC feature will not pass audio to the AVR.

Is this some lacquer coating on the transformer, e.g? Is this normal or my AVR is overheating? Appreciate any advice. Thanks.

I noticed same thing in my receiver. What is this?! Receiver works normal.

Looking for anyone who has experience with the AVR590 receiver and the Sharp LC70LE732 (70LE732) 70" TV.

I had my setup working perfectly on my LG 50" TV (Satelite and HTPC). I've now mounted this 70" monster and I cannot get it to display through the receiver. I have hooked the HTPC directly to the TV via HDMI and it works (somewhat, resolutions look like ass).

Does anyone have any experience with these two units?

Please help
post #4975 of 5195
I have an AVR-590, and HDMI video is 'blurring' slightly when running through the receiver (it seems to affect red colors specifically). If I turn my receiver off and let the video pass-through while it's on standby, the red blurring goes away. I assume this is caused by some sort of video processing in the receiver, that is turned off when it goes into standby.

Is this affecting anyone else with this model, or is there an option that I can turn off somewhere that will disable the video processing possibly? I've hunted around in the menu looking for something, but I can't find anything.

I also suspect that the video processor that creates the on-screen menu may be causing the red blurring as well. Is there a way to completely disable the on-screen menu?
post #4976 of 5195
@meatee - afaik, the 590 does no video processing and is simply an HDMI switch.

This is what I thought too, but something is causing the blurring effect. It only happens while the receiver is turned on, so I'm not sure what else could be the problem. Could some sort of interference inside the receiver be degrading the HDMI signal?

This is connected to a Sony KDL-40V3000 lcd tv, and the problem occurs with every device I have connected to the receiver (PS3, Xbox 360, and HTPC with Nvidia GeForce GTX 560-Ti).

I've had this issue for a couple years now, but just decided today to ask about it. The blurring isn't really visible from my couch, you can only notice it when you're right in front of the TV, so that's why I haven't really worried about it. But, I would still like to figure out the problem if possible!

Have you tried adjusting the video parameters on the TV's HDMI input (or tried the other HDMI inputs) at all to resolve the issue?
post #4979 of 5195
This morniing I turnd on the TV and ... no Sound. Also when I went to the setup menu it looked like this...

Parameter
Information
.
Manual Setup
Input Setup

I tried everything including reseting the micro processor. I guess i should have searched this forum before I did all that.

After just one search I found my answer....dust in the headphone jack

THANKS GUYS

I may not post much but I love reading these forums.

I had the same problem and the headphone trick worked, thanks
