Will the different inputs remember which quick selects I last used on different inputs or do I have to manually press the right button each time?

I believe they do. I used to have my karaoke stuff bass set lower. You'd have to set the quick selects to use the inputs + the trim level you want. So for let's say bd player , click bd than set the trim you want and hold quick select 1 till it says memory saved or something. I think that's how it works

Thank you very much!! I`ll try that!

Which DLNA-server is generally recommended to have on the PC for these recievers?
post #9364 of 10436
I use an HP mediasmart server. Any DLNA server should work, though, including just a network hard drive with built in DLNA server. I believe that any of the Western Digital network hard drives have DLNA built in as well as most of the Iomega drives.

I use an apple tv but some of the most talked about 3rd party software used are xbmc, foobar 2000, twonky and tversity. Google and check out some of the reviews.

The Denon Airplay upgrade is free if you want to stream iTunes from your laptop or Pc. You can also stream an iPod touch, iPhone or the iPad all wireless to you avr as well with Airplay.

Is there no way to have the HDMI in from the Sat box as the video signal for two different inputs? When I select it for one input, it deselects for another input. I got this Panasonic TV with viera apps. I am trying to create a separate input for the TV. The TV only outputs optical audio. I was hoping to use the video coming from the Sat Box instead of the Denon background.

No, it's not possible. Also with the smart app playing on the TV, that is your video source ... you can't have two video sources playing at the same time.

Time to contact Denon.

I don't think I'm going to be using the Viera apps much anyway. I've only had the new TV for a day, but I'm finding I prefer the apps on my LG DVD player, and I use the AVR for streaming music. Also, the AVR seems to be passing through 3D just fine. I wish the glasses I back ordered would hurry up and arrive. Also, I'm hoping ESPN3D ramps up it's college football offerings this fall. I go to all of Tennessee's home games, but I would record and watch South Dakota Tech State versus Rhode Island Military as if it were the Super Bowl.

If you are seeing a Denon logo and listening to your app you can run a component from your Sat box to component out 2 (Sat/Cable) on the back of your avr. You then go into Input Assign on your avr and scroll over to COMP and select 2-RCA. Next in Input Setup while in Net/USB and go into Video and in Video Select...select Sat Cable and you should have video from Sat Box.

So, I was just a bit tired of work today....6 hours of conference calls can do that. I decided, in my infinite wisdom to try to get the available firmware update. I was intending on grabbing AirPlay as well.

I started the firmware update and it said 6 mins. Figured no biggie and executed it. It is one called ether IMG. After quite a while, the receiver shows update fail B4. I pulled power for around 30 mins to no avail. I reset the receiver with the up/down/power and it came back. Reconfigured Audessey and took a backup. I got the AirPlay update, I think. After that completed, it started the ether IMG deal again. I left for several hours and came home to the same update fail B4 message.

I hooked the receiver directly to router. Then directly to modem. Both failed. Default setup is receiver to switch to router. All three fail.

What can I do about this, if anything? I saw several people mention this problem but saw no real solutions. Any ideas? I really don't want to have to potentially unhook and send to Denon.

Give it a go a few more times with the AVR wired directly to the router or the modem as wired generally always works better than wireless. Power off and unplug the AVR a few minutes between each attempt.

hi guy,

what speaker cable is best for my kef Q300 and Q200 with denon 3311 to provide warm and neutral sound as i prefer not too bright sound.

Thanks
post #9375 of 10436

whatever is of sufficient gauge and is long enough to reach... a big spool of 12 gauge from monoprice (or your local big box store) will suffice for almost every "home" application...

speaker wires aren't tone controls...
post #9376 of 10436

What if you place the spool next to the fireplace to warm it up before laying it out?
post #9377 of 10436

LOL! yea, that'll warm up the sound some...

by only if they are cryo'd first... the key is getting them good and cold first, so they can really absorb the warmth...

even 12 awg is overkill for nearly any home application. I usually recommend 14 awg just because it's a bit easier to work with and cheaper, but the vast majority of home setups would be fine with 16.
post #9379 of 10436

yea true dat... 14 and even 16 is more than adequate for the majority of setups, no doubt... 16 gauge lamp cord has worked quite well on many occasions for me...

the 12 gauge suggestion is just habit...

Nothing like a good cable debate.

Hey guys, has everyone noticed that their unit runs really warm even when it is just on but not doing anything? Just want to make sure mine isn't unique in that regard. Even if this is normal, it's kind of a bummer since the heat means it is consuming a lot of power. Gotta remember to turn the darn thing off all the time.
post #9382 of 10436

The video upscaling component generates alot of heat. On average the AVR will consume about 75W with no source playing and about 95W at reference volume.

Interesting, thanks. I hadn't hooked up my Kill-a-watt to it yet. I'll have to check and see what happens when the TV is off. Maybe the upscaling keeps running as long as there is a source feed.

Edit: temp gun is reading as high as 122F along the surface vents with just video.

Below is my new setup for my denon 3311 and would like ask if this is a good match 5.1 speaker surround.

KEF Q300 - Front
KEF Q200c - Center
PSB Image B25 - Surround (This is my old front speaker setup which currently replaced by KEF Q300 as front)

Thanks
post #9385 of 10436
The Denon 3311 is rated at 135W into 7 channels.
Any idea how much power can it supply if I am running just purely stereo?
post #9386 of 10436
My best buddy from college wants to buy the receiver I bought from accessories4less for exactly what I paid back in December. It is perfect. I love it. It sounds incredible. He feels the same way. I haven't had a single issue with it that wasn't user error.

I can buy a couple of matching speakers to upgrade to a 9.1 system for a fair price. Is it worth it to make the jump?

These are 8Ω, 87db speakers so should work fine.

The 3311 is "marketed" at 125W. It's sister model, 991 has bench tested @ 129W into 2CH and @ 97W into 5 CH.

Guess it depends on what you're replacing the 3311CI with.

Hi jdsmoothie,

The PSB Image b25 is rated 6ohm(100W) which i planned to setup as surround speaker while the KEF is rated 8hm(120W).

Thanks
