Denon AVR-4310CI Thread - Page 156

post #4651 of 5296
^^
The 4310CI has a 2 year warranty and if the original owner purchased with a credit card, his card provider may also add 1 more year to that (Amex does this). Although he would also have to have the original receipt. Did the owner tell you if the network card was replaced as it is a known defect on this model?
post #4652 of 5296
Many thanks for your help.

Original owner did not tell me about that. Would you have more details about this issue? (Link maybe?)

I'll ask Denon for their warranty policy in France...
post #4653 of 5296
The network card issue has been discussed numerous times in this thread; however, although I know it effects the USA/CA models, have no idea if it effects the EU models. Check with Denon support in your region.

Just got a message about new firmware, does anybody know what it fix or ad?

1) Support of modification in Rhapsody Codec.
2) Countermeasure of DM860 NAND Read Disturb.

Also note that firmware "updates" fix issues while "upgrades" add new features.

Hi all, finally got the NIC and the apple tv. So the apple tv was installed and the NIC not yet.

The apple tv really has covered all my needs about networking... Radio, streaming, etc.

Now I need the time to replace the card. Anyway, like you now I am overseas for a while, now I m viewing that denon release an update. So, do you recommend update the unit here or standing by?
My thoughts are if the updating process is still failing and left units inoperative. And far from denon.... Better don't touch

I'm waiting for your advice

I have my 4310 working fine but there are two things which I cannot seem to do.

1) When I go to the Source Delete option, the "DVD" shows up as ZONE3 and I can't Source Delete it and can't figure out where in the world this was assigned. I've gone through all the panels in the GUI and can't find it. I only use MAINZONE.

2) I have my 4310 accessing my J River Media Center library just fine using DLNA but that limits me to using the Denon UI. Is there any way (without using RCA cables from the PC) that the Denon can play whatever is being streamed on the PC (over the internal network) ?

Thanks
post #4659 of 5296
you can't delete a source that is in use, so you have to change the source for Zone 3. it's not going to be in the GUI, you are going to have to use the remote or front panel buttons to change the Zone 3 source to something else (see instruction in manual, pg 87).
post #4660 of 5296
Thanks batpig. That did the trick. I musta changed that somehow unknowlingly.

Fyi I did the update without any problems yesterday. It took about 7 minutes.
post #4662 of 5296
I presume my 4310 was updated when in the shop getting a new NIC card. I haven't been notified of any FW change being available...
post #4663 of 5296
I have a question for the group. My 4310 has never had an update and it has the original NIC card. I see there is a firmware update, should I do it or leave it alone until my NIC card dies? I have a replacement NIC card for the time the original goes bad. I would be appreciate any thoughts. Thanks in advance. JT

In your case I think better to wait a while. Nobodies knows if the NIC will fail or not, but if fails during the update, may be a problem...

Good luck

I'd like to know how to find the actual version of firmware in my 4310 and the latest. Does anybody know the number of actual version?

Does the actual version improve anything?

I don't know if upgrade or not.

I think it has something to do with Rhapsody. I installed it in 4 minutes without any trouble.

Well my NIC card started to fail today. I couldn't connect to the setup menu through my laptop and the internet radio was losing connectivity. Fortunately I had purchased the NIC replacement card two weeks ago. I replaced it tonight and it only took 10 minutes to do. It took longer to take the screws out then to replace the card. Once I reconnected the unit it ran the firmware for the new card, which took an hour. After the update the system worked perfectly. Thanks to this forum and the members who provided me with the information needed to replace the NIC card... Happy Thanksgiving.. JT

Excellent! Do you note any better performance after the change and update?

Happy thanksgiving

Yes there is a noticeable increase in the speed of the interface and loading of internet radio stations. I'm very happy with the performance. Thanks

I use the app plugplayer on my iPad and iPhone, i.e. I use the plugplayer ui to play my music from my network.

Does the 4310 properly pass-through 3D? I have a PS3, which is an HDMI 1.3a device that Sony did all kinds of magic to in order to support 3D, and I've got a Samsung PN64D7000 coming next week. I know the 4310 is only HDMI 1.3a as well but can you pass the HDMI 1.3a with 3D output from PS3 through it to the TV? Considering how expensive this receiver was, it would be nice to keep using it and everything...
post #4673 of 5296
Sorry, but no. The PS3 uses a much more sophisticated microprocessor than does your AVR and is able to pass 3D via a firmware (rather than hardware) upgrade. However, as the PS3 still cannot pass Dolby TrueHD with 3D video, your best option is to get a dual HDMI 1.4 BDP to pass 3D video to the TV and the HD audio to the AVR.
post #4674 of 5296
Hmm, okay. What about the PS3? Will I need to find a way to split the signal from the PS3 for playing 3D games, then?
post #4675 of 5296
Likely not as PS3 games are only in 720p and should pass through the 4310CI without issue.
post #4676 of 5296
Really? So for just gaming, I can still plug the PS3 directly into the receiver and it will pass 720p 3D game output directly through the receiver? The PS3 and TV will know about this and handshake properly with the receiver in between?
post #4677 of 5296
AFAIK, yes, although guess you'll find out for sure next week.

New update available for the 4310? My AVR when turned on keeps asking. Do I want it?

Good question. Anyone tried it yet?

How long has it been since you downloaded an update? There was one a few weeks ago that took about 7 minutes start to finish. Today I am not getting any notification, and the system indicates I have the latest update.
