the "save" is part of the Quick Select function, it's not in the menus. See pg 38 in your manual.
the point is that the Quick Select takes a "snapshot" of your receivers settings for a given input and allows you to recall everything (volume, surround mode, Audyssey, etc) at the touch of a button. However, if you change a setting manually, and then don't re-memorize the Quick Select, when you press the Quick Select button it will recall the OLD settings, wiping out your manual changes.
I've tried looking through the manual, but I can't find any answers for my small problem.
I can't find a way to save the Volume level for my "DVD" [input button], which is used by my PC. ...Every time I switch from a Quick Select button (Xbox, PC3, etc) and go back to the DVD button, the volume stays at what the Quick Select source was using (which is normally 2x as loud as what I listen to my PC's volume at).
How can I save the volume for a "DVD" [button] source, so that it's not mega-loud (when switching from a Quick Select input)?
Hello! This is my first post on AVS-forum, and I am kinda newbie with all of these settings and stuff.. And, I'm not so interested about reading the whole topic from start and find if someone else has a same problem than I do, so rather ask this way : )
So, I have Denon AVR-1911, 5.0 Setting of Tannoy Mercury F2, Playstation 3, LG 50PA5500 tv, and PC which has a HDMI output.
I am trying to get the picture and sound out of both Ps3, and PC. When I connect Ps3 via HDMI to "Game", everything works fine, both sound comes out of the speakers and picture shows off in TV, of course you have chosen the Game input in Denon. Problem is, now when I'm trying to connect my PC to Receiver, which HDMI-slot (BD, DVD etc..) should I put it?? I have tried all of them, but i don't get picture through and no sound coming. It only works if I connect PC via HDMI to GAME-slot, then the picture shows in TV and sound comes through speakers. Do I have something wrong or is it just that I can't get both Ps3 and PC connected to Denon? or is it just a setting that I just don't know.. I have just installed my Denon and ran the audussey settings.
Question for you guys, I have had the 1911 for a while now and moved and just completed my audyssey setup again. Before I setup my Audyssey, I was able to turn my tv off, but still listen to the music (Pandora through Directv) via the optical cable that runs from the directv box straight to the receiver.
Well, after I completed the Audyssey setup, I turn off my tv so I am only listening to the audio as I have been doing and the sound pauses. I turn the tv back on, it the sound is back? What did Audyssey change because this wasn't happening prior to the Audyssey setup.
I like to turn the tv off to save on electricity while listening to music (63 inch Samsung PLasma). I have hdmi cables running straight to the tv on all my components because i became too annoyed with the erratic behavior of the HDMI pass through. I use an optical cable from the Blu Ray and DIrectv straight to the receiver. The only thing I have connected straight to the receiver hdmi wise is the appletv.
This is not an issue with Audyssey, rather more likely an HDMI handshake issue with your DTV box. Is it the same box you had before or a different model? You might want to try turning the DTV box off when you turn the TV off and then turn the DTV box back on again. A Harmony remote makes for much easier selection of sources in instances like this where several steps can be accomplished with 1 button press on the Harmony.
It's the exact same DTV box. Literally it worked like 5 minutes before I completed the Audyssey process, and after doing so it started acting up. I am using a Harmony Remote control (700). I feel like some setting must have changed for this to happen. Any other ideas?
Hey. My buddy has DENON AVR-2311CI. Bought a refurb and set it up and no speakers worked. Sent it back and got a replacement back from Denon. The second one now has problem with some of the HDMI slots. If we plug blu-ray playing into BD spot it doesn't work, but if we plug into DVD slot it works fine. With the cable box I was able to get video but no sound was coming out. Switched it to a different input and everything was fine. What could I be doing wrong? I believe we are gonna have to send it back to Denon again for another replacement...
Ya I have have had issues where certain signals did not work, I could never get my PC to display into the game port, which was what I wanted because it is more intuitive, I had to put it into the BD port. One more reason why HDMI is such a horrible standard that confuses people more than it solves problems. Think about how many customers might buy a reciever then just return it because of this. Is it really that hard to just make all the ports work with all input sources
Went from 988 to a 891. The 891 seems to be less forgiving with video. Have had numerous video drop outs. Most of them coming from HD DVD player. I must admit to having questionable quality HDMI cables. Was thinking of getting 24 AWG cables all round. Anybody else having similar issues?
What does the front panel display read when playing an audio track? Do the headphones work? If yes, try inserting/removing the headphone plug several times into the headphone jack to clear the contact.
Sounds like you need to reset the microprocessor. You probably had a small power surge, resetting the microprocessor should take care of the problem. However, all settings will be back to factory settings. So write them down first.
unfortunately the only way to activate shuffle is buried deep in the menus, in the INPUT SETUP area. It's easier to find stuff like this if you download a PDF of the manual and then you can search for text, e.g. I just searched for the word "shuffle" and found this pretty easily:
the new xx13 models have made a major usability improvement in this area by adding an [OPTION] button to the remote, which allows you to call up on-the-fly adjustments like Random, Repeat, etc. without diving into the menus.
The most likely culprit is the cables, so replace them with cables from forum sponsor Monoprice.
So, finally ordered new cables and sold a couple of the other ones. Picked up 6 4ft 24 AWG cables. Wow! I expected the signal issue to clear up, but I didn't expect such an improvement of picture quality. My HD DVD player was the component that has displayed the most improvement. I put in "Bladerunner", "King Kong" and "Eagles: Farewell Tour I" and am just blown away. Just perfection I tell you! I'm tickled.
