1. More likely an HDMI-CEC issue .. set it to OFF on the TV (eg. Anynet+, VierraLink, BraviaSync).
2. Could be issue with that particular BDP, although there is an Audio Delay setting that can be adjusted as necessary on the AVR.

ok I read quite a few threads but non of the recomended sugestions solved the problem, still can't get DTS HD or Dolby True HD. getting pretty frustrated now

Have sony bdp-s760 connected to denon 1911 all hdmi connected

The audio setup on my BluRay player is:

Audio Output Priority: HDMI
Audio (HDMI): Auto
BD Audio Setting: Direct
Audio ATT: Off
Dolby Digital: Dolby Digital
DTS: DTS
48/96 PCM: 96/24
Audio DRC: Auto
Downmix: Dolby Surround

Any ideas please??

Hi Nerijus, BD player audio settings appears correct, some questions?

- what BD disc is playing?

- is TrueHD/DTSHD-MA track selected on the BD disc menu (note: not all disc default to TrueHD/DTSHD-MA track and also beginning previews)?

- what does it show for audio output on BD player (press "Display" on Sony remote)?

- what does the receiver display?

- did you try pressing the "STANDARD" button on Denon remote?

I'm suspecting that the player is doing the decoding. The player should have the option of sending the audio PCM or bitstream. The player needs to be set to send audio bitstream so the audio is sent undecoded for the receiver to do it.

Sony players don't have a bitstream setting. When set to Direct, the player uses the HDMI handshake to determine whether to decode or bitstream. So, HDMI Auto and Direct should produce a bitstream output when attached to an AVR with lossless decoders.

Nerijus - what does the AVR report about the type of audio it is receiving? Also, is the AVR set to Amp or Thru?

ah, I just check and you're right. But the most embarrassing part is that I actually have a Sony BD player

By pressing display on Sony remote I get English dolby digital 3/2.1 48kHz
And receiver displays digital, PLIIx HDMI auto

Think is set to amp.
Have no remote for denon receiver using Logitech harmony instead and denons panel to set up everything. Audyssey is missing as well, had to set it up everything manually. Got denon from Currys for £189 of display with no remote or Audyssey now paying the price

I asked because when set to Through, the HDMI handshake with a TV can override the player output settings. But, that would cause a PCM stereo output, not DD 5.1.

Dolby Digital 3/2.1 means the player is not sending TrueHD. So, are you selecting the TrueHD track on the disc? (While many discs default to TrueHD, some do not.) Does this happen with all discs or just some?

Are you configured for 7.1? PLIIx is applied to 5.1 sources to expand them to 7.1 and it is only available as an option in systems with rear speakers.
post #4360 of 5032
If it says it's playing Dolby digital... Why are surprised the receiver also says dolby digital? You need to select the HD audio track on the disc (assuming it has one).

Thanks, I do remember seeing some sort of HDMI-CEC thing and we disabled it at some point just because we didn't know what it was. Hopefully that helps.

I agree that the BDP could be at issue on #2. Wasn't sure if it was a known issue with this AVR though.

Thanks for responding!

Hi all,

Sorry if this has been answered before but this is one looong thread!

I recently picked up an AVR 891, along with a Panasonic TH-P50UT30A 50" plasma. I have this hooked up to the 891 via the ARC input, but when I select TV on the amp, all I get onscreen is the Denon logo and no sound. All other connections are working fine (OPPO BDP-83, Topfield PVR and XBox).

I'm sure it's something really simple, but I can't figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
post #4364 of 5032
you do have a source connected to the "tv" input on the avr, correct?
post #4365 of 5032
Correct
post #4366 of 5032
^^^

check in the "input assign" menu (on the avr) and make sure the hdmi port you are using is assigned to the "tv" input...
post #4367 of 5032
Sorry. At work at the moment (getting heaps done!). Just looking at the manual online, I don't see a TV "input". There's just the "Monitor Out" (ARC). As far as I can tell, I just need the hdmi from that connection to the hdmi 2 (ARC) on the TV.

Hi dbmp1971, on the receiver enable HDMI Control. And go into Panasonic Tv Viera Link menu and enable Viera Link and set Tv Speaker to Theater. After the settings, turn tv off and on (may require doing the same with receiver).

Cool. Will do. I'll report back. Cheers!

Hi all,
I'm looking to upgrade my Denon 1610 and the 2311 is going for pretty cheap prices where I live. They sell the EU model here, and it comes with pre outs.

Is the 2311 still a worthy upgrade, or should I spend on a xx12 model instead?
post #4371 of 5032
^^

2311 vs. 1610: 7.1, GUI Overlay, 1080p video upscaling chip, preouts (EU only)

2312 vs. 2311: Networking, Airplay, upgraded version of Audyssey (MultEQ XT), no preouts

Note: Denon has dropped the preouts on the 23XX line and therefore you would have to upgrade to the 3312 to get them.

Thanks JChin. It's all good now. Much appreciated!
post #4373 of 5032
My equipment:
1. Denon AVR 1911
2. Yamaha Receiver
3. Mono Price Speaker Selector (http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...=2#description)

Areas getting sound:
1. Living Room (5.1 off the Denon)
2. Kitchen (pair speakers)
3. Patio (pair speakers)
4. Master Bedroom (pair speakers)

The big question:
I just purchased the Speaker Selector, and not sure were it goes?

- I am running Klipsch 5.1 speakers directly to Denon
- The rest of the speakers should go to Speaker Selector right?

***Now after connecting the rest of the speakers to the Speaker Selector(minus 5.1), do I connect the "Input" from Speaker Selector to the Yamaha Receiver and do a RCA cable Zone 2 out from Denon to Yamaha?***
post #4374 of 5032
^^
Correct. Zone 2 preout to analog input on the Yamaha. Then connect FL/FR speaker posts on the Yamaha to the INPUTs (upper left corner) on the switch.

for the life of me, I can't get this to work. I have the same tv and a 2311, passthrough works fine but ARC . I have my HDMI cable in the one mark ARC behind the tv. It didn't work on my Pio 921 either. I read both manuals to see if there is some kind of sequence to do things but can't find anything that elude to that. Could it be my HDMI cable?

cheers
post #4376 of 5032
^^^ Make sure that both devices support HDMI 1.4, that the cable is HDMI 1.3 or 1.4 compatible, that you have HDMI-CEC enabled on both the TV (Viera link) and on the AVR (HDMI Control is set to ON) and that on the TV the HDMI cable is plugged in HDMI port that supports ARC.

Hope this helps.

It's not likely the cable. If you have followed the instructions JChin provided and the cable from the 2311 is plugged into HDMI(2) on the Panny, more than likely it's an issue with the Panny itself.

Also, after you have all settings correct, you might have to restart both the TV and the AVR.

Hi,

I have one Denon 1911 with a monitor audio subwoffer. The problem is the subwoofer only have auto power-off. When i am listening music with low level the subwoofer turns off, and ruin all the sound.. I need to put the volume highter to make the subwoofer turn on again, but after a while it turns off again.

There are any way to solve it?

Thks in advance.
