Gonna try and swing it by there next monday.
Gonna make sure I keep my original receiver, and they should just replace the part if that is bad.

I have had two 3311's do exactly the same thing. In addition they seem to lose track of their MAC addresses (which disappeared from the status display in the menu). The only way to fix them was to have the service center replace the HDMI board which also has the networking chip on it. BTW, I am also a network admin and tried everything you did to no avail. There is definitely a weakness in the networking hardware or firmware of this model. I had a 3310 previously and never had a networking problem. Misery loves company?

Hi guys,
With the HDMI board change the problem was solved?
I had the same problem a few days ago, the estrange thing is that I had the 3311CI connected to the network working fine for months, I don’t understand…

Thanks.

Will airplay source be output through zone 2?

Thanks in advance.
post #4413 of 10436
Yes. A 4311 owner confirmed this; however, only when the main zone also has NET/USB selected as the source.

At least so far, the board change has worked. My receiver(s) worked fine for months also and then failed. I can only hope that some modifications were made to the new boards that were installed and the network connection problem will not reoccur.

Luckily I have an authorized service center only a couple of miles from home. The guy at the service center said that he has had to replace quite a few of the problematic boards in this model.

The bigger problem developed on Dec 26, when in the NET/USB mode the display on the TV screen of the folders used to navigate through Internet Radio, Pandora, Media Server, etc would break up erratically for a fraction of a second every 5-10 sec or so. And when the TV display timed out and went black while listening to music, it would flash bright white ever so often.

So this sounds to me like and imaging issue when the device goes onto screen saver, while it's playing the MP3's. On mine, I've been listening to the DLNA MP3's and found after x time, it goes to a screen saver to protect the "monitor" device.

For a quick test, I would see if you can disable the screen saver option to see if that will work.

My 3311 had the same issues. Tried unplugging, microprocessor reset, etc.. nothing fixed the issue so it went in for repair.

The service performed listed the following:
Resoldered R681 and Bead BD 605 on MIC board
Upgraded Firmware

So far so good after the reapirs (knocks on wood)

When the unit goes to screensaver the TV display is supposed to stay black. Instead it flashes bright white every 10 sec or so. When not in screensaver the display of the folders used to navigate through music selections breaks up frequently with white or green flashes, random garbage, etc.
post #4418 of 10436
I could use a little advice on setting up media streaming on the 3311. I have the internet connection working; I've done firmware updates, and Pandora, internet radio, etc. work. But for media server, it just says "----empty----".

My setup is as follows: Windows7 PC --> Linksys E3000 wireless router --> D-Link DAP-1522 wireless bridge --> Denon 3311ci.

Thanks in advance.

OK, all has been good for 3 months. Still OK except I cant play my PC based music now. I see my media server on the TV screen GUI, and it has the name I gave my PC. I move down into the file Music and the only music is the SAMPLE music that apparently comes with Win 7. And the same for pictures. Only the sample pictures.

All worked fine before. Could see music, and pics etc.

And now the web controller wont hook up. Could it have changed IP addresses from when I installed it? How do I find the IP address. I wandered around the menu but didnt see where to find it.

The iPhone Denon app works but just like the receiver version...it doesnt see the inside music or pic files on the PC. ----- Yes the PC is on.

thanks

Oops, forgot I have replaced the wifi modem recently. Is there some type of rediscovery to do....
post #4421 of 10436
Can anyone confirm that the cable box pop issues goes away when listening to the audio in stereo or dolby plII? I notice that certains channels will exibit the popping (TVLAND) when switching from 2.0 to 5.1 and vice versa. I wondering if I watch in another acceptable mode (non 5.1) if it will get rid of the pops and then when I'm watching something special (i.e. movie, concert, football) then I can turn on 5.1 decoding again w/o fear of pops. I ask because I really like these new speakers and don't want to damage them with the popping.

the only way i could get the popping to stop with my cable box was set the box at stereo. then i could watch the hi def channels without any harsh popping.and yes mine was so loud that it would of hurt speakers, if I would have continued.But i was not happy paying $100 per month on hi def cable and not being able to have 5.1 sound. and cable company said it was my amps problem. so I dropped cable and went to a sat service, and everything is mint!! I can watch all hi def 5.1 plii or whatever i want without any of those terrable pops through speakers. I had tis problem with an onk 608. denon 1906, 2310, so it wasnt my equipment, it was there motorolla cable box.hope this answers your question...cable sucks!
onr last thing. with my 1906 the pops were bad , but not to the point where i was worried about speakers.the 2310 was worse, and the 3311, was terrable. I imagine this was due to the fact that I was getting more watts as I went higher up the food chain

Sickman,

I'm no expert, so a basic question to you. Have you set up a media server on your PC? If nothing else, you can use Windows Media Player as the server. Make sure the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Server is running (Start-->Right click on Computer-->Select Manage-->then Services). You can set it to run with Automatic (Delayed Start). If it is not currently running, start the service. In WMP, go to you Library and set it up for sharing. You should then be able to see your PC listed in Net/USB on your Denon.

To check the Network settings on the Denon: Go to Manual Setup-->Network Setup-->Network Information. This will display the IP and MACID. If you don't have a MACID shown, search this thread for related MACID issues.

A couple of basic questions...
Do you have MACID filtering turned on in the Router? If you do, is the Denon's MACID listed? Do you set the correct password/phrase in the Denon's network setup to match what's set in the Router security?

Well, I got the WEB controller to work. The AVR had a new IP address. MAC was displayed OK and now can control it via the WEB control. But still cant drill down past the PC name and sample music to get to my own music. Odd that it can see the PC and certain folder....but not other folders or drives.

Ive got a call into the installer, but Ill keep trying and watching the forum.

thanks again

Bricko,

What are you using for a media server? WMP? Or something else?

Interesting. I took my 5 year old dvr back to the company. It was a dct series motorola dvr. I got the new dcx series motorola dvr. I had to go back to work so haven't had a chance to play with it beyond initial setup but the pq difference is stunning. Now let's see if the pops go away. I find it interesting that my other motorola HDTV box hooked to my 4308ci does not pop at all. It isn't a dvr and I don't recall the series number off the top of my head. I'm crossing my fingers for a popless football playoff game!

well good luck, my cable boxs were both motorollas as well. one was hd pvr and other in basement was just hd. I tried them both upstairs and both gave me equal loud pops,interesting your 4308 didnt give you the same probs??!my new shaw sat service is a hd pvr motorolla now and works perfect, as well my pq on my sat is alot better than my pq on cable. and both were hd as well.all I can say that iam happy now I can watch and listen to hi def channels in 5.1 or any other mode without those big pops.they would scare the crap out of you,esspecially that you never new when it would happen, could be 5 times in 30 minutes or one time in 2 hours. good luck on the popless fotball game. let me know how it goes...fingers crossed!

Thanks for the reply. I checked as you suggested and the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Server was indeed running. Still no joy. When I try to "play to" the Denon (which is an option, it just hangs on "Contacting media server . . ."
post #4430 of 10436
Another question, do you have some media (e.g. mp3s) in the WMP Library? If yes, then open WMP Help, search on "streaming" and select "Getting started with media streaming" for a step-by-step setup process. Essentially after selecting Library view and clicking on the Streaming tab, you will check a box to turn on WMP streaming, and in the advanced options "Allow" streaming from devices (your Denon) on your Local Network.

Hope that helps,

Xekester

Set-up new router (airport extreme), the 3311 is plugged into a bridge that connects to the router.

Saw something new..........Windows media server, and it shows the sample windows music.

But...not seeing the internet radio anymore. Perhaps this is the same situation as recent poster?

Help?

Thanks, Robotten

I have not been having any major popping issues on a continuous basis but I did notice few big popping sounds when cable TV (comcast) cuts out the regular feed and inserts their own local advertisements. I figured that this transition by Comcast is not smooth and carries some signal during the change that is interpreted by AVR (or probably even on TV but not amplified in surround). I am in Boston area of Comcast.

Hi, I just picked up a 3311ci .... in the manual it says hdmi v1.4 not v1.4a for the HDMI Support.
I picked up a DVR-991 from FS as well over holidays and in that manual it say hdmi v1.4a ... this one I am returning ....

I was wondering why does the manual for 3311ci says v1.4 for hdmi not v1.4a ...any ideas?

Thanks

I've got comcast too. Murphy's law. I've been watching for 3 hour w/o a pop. It pops when you don't want it to, then when you are looking for it, it doesn't pop. I'll give it a week to see if I get the popping again.

Recently, I bought the Denon AVR-3311CI. I am enjoying it and I am still learning its many features. However, the last couple of days, each time I turn the receiver on, I get the message that an upgrade for Airplay is available. I am not interested in Airplay. How do I get rid of that message for ever?

I turned the airplay notice off by going into menu,manual setup,network setup,other,upgrade notification and set it to off. I don't know why I would pay for that when media server is free and essentially does the same thing for me.

So streaming is working great.

2 questions.

How does it determine and display artwork, i get artwork for some songs and not others.

Also what name does denon show up as on music servers? I dont see a denon device on foobar.

Just bought and unpacked a brand new 991 - excited about it other than a little stumbling block.

Does anybody know why I cannot get my Optical In (TV 1) to play sound?

I can get my Optical In (DVR 2) to work with the same Optical cable and signal- so I know it isn't the cable.

What happens is the DIG. symbol blinks on the receiver displays left hand side, as well as the 6 speakers indicators(LFE,FL,C,FR,SL,SR). The worst part is that when I press the Pure button, the sound comes through the machine fine. I am so confused...

There must be some configuration that I am not setting up properly, but I can't figure it out? Why does the DVR optical 2 work out of the box with the same digital signal?

Please help.

Hi juicecan, is the receiver connected to tv via HDMI (ARC) port? If so, is HDMI Control is set to ON? If yes to both try setting HDMI Control to OFF.
