Thanks, and looking forward to what I've heard is a great site!

Try doing a soft reset (unplug for 10 minutes) as well as ensuring the HDMI cable from the AVR to the TV is securely fitted at both ends.

The X3000 offers some new features (eg. networking, digital to Zone 2, Zone 2 (HDMI) monitor out), Front Wide speakers, etc.). On the BDP, if there is a "Deep Color Output" setting, try setting it to OFF. Also Redmere cables are "powered" cables that help to extend the HDMI signal to longer distances, although should not be required for cable length of 20' or less.


Thanks a bunch JD!!!

I haven't posted to this thread since buying/setting-up my 2310CI back in August '09, but after 4+ years of trouble-free ownership a problem has popped up: I'm not getting any sound from my main (FL/FR) speakers.

I have not disconnected/reconnected the speakers (Athena AS-F2's) or made any 'menu' changes to the receiver since the initial setup. The 'display' on the front of the unit shows them as 'on', and when I went thru the setup menu(s) today all the settings appeared OK/unchanged. When I hit the 'Start Test Tone' button and cycle thru the speakers I hear normal levels from the center/surrounds/sub, but dead silence from the FR & FL.

While searching to see if any others had a similar problem I spotted some posts that mentioned a "firmware update" (which I've never done), and others that suggested a "hard reset".

TIA

Make sure the Front Speakers are set to "A" and not "B".

That did the trick ....big thanks!

Unfortunately no luck. After unplugging and allowing 10 minutes I've now lost the sound too! Feeling frustrated

I just got a PS4, and while playing Call of Duty Ghosts, the bass is super loud. It's great during the day, when people aren't trying to sleep, but when i play at night, I'm waking everyone up. Is there a way to set specific audio settings for each input, so I can have a setting that has less bass?

Hi biglen,

Did you try Dynamic Volume?

Yes. The sub is still pretty loud with Dynamic Volume.

I'm considering purchasing an Oppo BDP-103 as a replacement for an aging Pioneer DVD player (with SACD and DVD-A playback and speaker/bass management). In looking over the information on the 103 and reviewing the HDMI information for the 2310, it looks like I'll be able to use a single HDMI output on the Oppo (set for 1080) to pass DVD-A and SACD. The 2310 apparently handles DVD-A natively from HDMI bitstream, but not SACD. However, the Oppo has an option for converting SACD to multichannel PCM, which the 2310 does handle. Does this sound right or am I missing something? The Oppo has analog outputs and speaker management too, but obviously I'd like to skip using the analog connections, plus I really like having the 2310's Audyssey/EQ available instead of using the direct EXT inputs. I'm figuring it will also be best to disable the scaler on the Denon. Any other thoughts/suggestions regarding the Oppo 103 with the 2310 would be appreciated......

Nope ... you pretty much have it all straight. smile.gif Although for only $100 more, suggest you consider the 103D with Darby Vision technology otherwise adding the box separately would cost $300.

I was going to research the Darby option and see if there were some good objective reviews/tests somewhere. I briefly popped in on the BDP-103 thread here but obviously that will take more than a few minutes to sift through.
I need to go over the 103 manual and the 2310 manual once more, and I need to review my display's deep color information, but I think I'll definitely be buying the Oppo.
post #7156 of 7166
ummmmm....can Darbee have a positive effect on 1080 video cable signal going through 2310? Would it be better to have separate Darbee if so? Or would it be an issue of passing cable signal through Oppo, then on to receiver...and then output Davrbee-ized signal to whatever?

and yes, jtiner, the Oppo is fantastic.
post #7157 of 7166

Anytime you're using an Oppo, the video processing in the AVR should be set to OFF, as in most cases the Oppo will have far superior upscaling/deinterlacing capability.
post #7158 of 7166
Uhhhh....yeah...I have that down, JD.

In other words, if Oppo with integrated Darbee, poster above^^^ should be running cable tv signal through Oppo rather than just cable signal to AVR to video output source, right?...biggrin.gif
post #7159 of 7166
Correct. My point was that regardless of whether using the 103 or 103D, the video processing in the AVR would be set to off and the cbl/sat source would be connected to the Oppo to take advantage of the better processing.
post #7160 of 7166
^^^^Yup.

Other Yamaha and Onkyo AVR's that I've owned in the past all played 100% stereo to all speakers including the center channel. Why is this different for Denon?


HELP!

How might you propose sending 100% stereo 1 speaker? Think about it. people often think that because their center speaker will generally have 2 speakers that it can somehow be used like stereo speakers when in reality it is only one speaker so the idea of playing "real stereo", or "the same as the other speakers" is an unattainable expectation.

Personally I have found that the Dynamic EQ as well as dynamic volume features are best used without a subwoofer. in fact to be even more specific what I do is I will use my subwoofer when I am using Audyssey room correction only (not Dyn eq or Dyn vol). when I use those features with the subwoofer on it really seems to bloat the bass. But, when I am watching cable television or using a source where I do not require my subwoofer I will turn off the subwoofer and then turn on Dynamic EQ or volume depending on the situation. when I do this however I still have the crossover setting set to 60 so everything below 60 is just lost which is exactly what I want late at night. it's a really nice thing to be able to simply turn off your subwoofer and still keep your crossover setting. you need to turn off your subwoofer directly though as opposed to turning it off digitally through the AVR itself, because if you turn it off via the AVR it will automatically set your front speakers too large which then introduces a full range signal to your mains. Really gives you a lot of flexibility and gives you the power to completely eliminate low frequencies that you don't want to bother people with us at night. But again I have found that in my system using dynamic EQ and dynamic volume is best done with out a subwoofer. However having said all of that I feel as though those settings can also bloat the bass if you are using your fronts set to "large" (as stated above), especially if your mains are capable of producing deep bass. the real moral of this story in a nutshell is that I feel any system which produces deep bass will sound bloated with Dynamic EQ or dynamic volume activated... whereas systems that do not go down into low frequencies may end up sounding more robust and full with the use of these features. of course your taste will be different than mine but this has been my experience after using these settings with a hand full of different speakers and receivers...AVR 890, 3808, 4310, 4810, and 4308 which I now own...all used with various Polk RTi speakers.

Hey guys just wanted to stop in and say hello, I haven't been on here since I was trying to figure out audyssey years ago... I've had a great time with my 2310, but it's time to send her to another happy home... If you guys know anyone who would like to buy one or if you want to buy it let me know. It still has black tie geek squad warranty on it too! Time for me to go to yamaha thread! wink.gif

Oh and I live in CT if anyone would like to do it locally that would be great, but I can ship from work too...

Keep in mind your new Yamaha cannot EQ the subwoofer whereas the Audyssey on the 2310CI can.

My blueray player (LG BD390) will process digital audio output at: 1. 48KHz, 2. 96KHz, or 3. 192Khz.
Will my 2310CI process all of these?

I see no reason why it should not. Mine does. Also does 44.1 kHz for redbook CD. smile.gif Press "menu", then "information" on the remote, then scroll down to "audio" and check the incoming signal specs during playback.
