What generation iPod Touch are you using? As noted below, only the 3rd generation and higher can upgrade to iOS 4.3 and higher.

Thanks jd ,that's what my problem is. I have a gen 2 ipod that I got as a hand me down when my son upgraded.So I un-jailbroke the ipod for nothing.
I guess I'm pooched until he upgrades again mad.gif

Jdsmoothie,
I have my wireless headphones connected to the DVR output. It works great. I can receive airplay, tv, hd radio, etc.. I have another analog wireless device (Souncast: http://www.soundcastsystems.com/_iCast_features.html ) I would like to hook up in the same manner, but the 3311ci only has one DVR output. Is there any other way? If not, will a splitter work on the DVR output?
Thanks a bunch..
post #9994 of 10436
You could use one of the zone pre outs. Zone 2 is tied to the REC OUT source so use that if you want to have them on the same source, or use Zone 3 if you want to have the flexibility of having them on separate sources. Or just use an RCA splitter.

Well .. either that or you good upgrade yourself now and hand the gen 2 down to someone else (family or friend). wink.gif

Anyone know what this latest update added/fixed?
post #9997 of 10436
I think all it did was fix a Pandora handshake issue.
post #9998 of 10436
Speaking of Pandora, if i pay for a premium subscription to Pandora will I get the higher bit rate on the Denon receiver app?
post #9999 of 10436
No, the higher bit rate is only available when running Pandora on your computer; at least when I subscribed to the Premium version about 6 months ago.

I'm not sure if this has been talked about. I have a set of Bose outdoor speakers on my patio and I was wondering how to connect them to the 3311CI. What I would like to have is the ability to watch TV in my living room on Zone 1 and have the radio playing on the patio speakers on Zone 2 if that can happen.

Thank you,
Jason.

Jason, read this: Understanding Zones

Thank you that is what I needed.
post #10003 of 10436
Batpig, Nice job on "Understanding Zones".
One more question:
I was under the impression that if all my input connections were HDMI and I connected something like this Etekcity Mini HDMI to AV Composite RCA adapter, Link: http://www.amazon.com/Etekcity-Composite-Video-Audio-Converter/dp/B008FO7PQA/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2KK9XIU13VHIJ&coliid=I36NBZGZMBORH4 to the Zone 2 HDMI output, I could easily have an analog wireless headphone attached to this adapter w/o adding any additional analog cables. Am I mistaken?
post #10004 of 10436
What do you mean by "Zone 2 HDMI" output? This is the 3311 thread, that feature was introduced two generations later on the current 3313 mdoel.
post #10005 of 10436
My bad, at the time I wrote that question I thought I was in the 3313 thread.
I'll head over to the 3313 thread and see if the answer exists.

There's another option
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.pskiwi.avrremote

I've been using for 6 months and am very satisfied. Updates arrive every couple months and I have discovered new functions in the AVR thanks to the depth of options. 8 out of 9 reviews is 4 or 5 stars. Haven't tried deremote. factory app is worthless for this receiver,isn't supported as of December. It's free.

I'm curious about this part of your denon guide: "That means if you have a 1080p TV, it is already going to upscale everything to 1080p!!! Upscaling in receivers is, in a sense, mostly a marketing gimmick, and it is only a useful feature if it does it better than your display! What you really want to make sure is that the receiver doesn't screw anything up when passing the video through, and in that sense the Denons are just fine."
My Dish DVR outputs 1080i,and previously my LG 47LH90 displayed this signal as 1080i. After changing Denon settings to output 1080p via scaler, TV now registers 1080p. I swear I notice a difference in picture smoothness, however that could all be in my head. Regardless the TV is registering a progressive scan signal now so how does this reconcile with what's in the guide?
Also struggling with what's best for video settings across the system in terms of video for ps3,denon,lg. TV supports 'wide' or 'standard' color gamut, black level adjust, white balance temp. Right now I have video convert off, no gui overlay, PS3 set to ypb/cb pr/cr, super white off, deep color auto, rgb range limited. TV is set with standard color gamut, low black level. TV menu only mentions rgb in a PC option which is greyed out. During trial and error, I did have black crush, but current setting have decent detail in shadow areas. Denon info menu registers 1080p:60 hz, RGB 4:4:4,12 bit seemingly no matter what I set on ps3, which isn't making sense. Please offer any advice you have. Thanks!

Edit : turning off upscaling for HDMI signals does change output signal to interlaced. So there indeed is value in the feature. You can definitely tell a difference in PQ. Didn't hear from anyone re: video settings but have done a lot of trial & error.1 of the frustrations of using monitor out and HDMI switching on the AVR is that it only uses 1 input and there for 1 set of calibration settings on the TV I'm wondering if anyone has used monitor out to with certain AVR inputs and there for allowing for 2 complete sets of TV settings by using to TV inputs?
post #10008 of 10436
Sorry i have a noob question. How do i set it to play just 2.1 for music? Yesterday i tried but it would only have 2 fronts and miss out the sub. Also tried to press several modes but while the sub was enabled, the fronts then became altered like in a movie/theater mode or something.
post #10009 of 10436
With the FL/FR speakers set to SMALL/80Hz (as they should be), when you set the STEREO surround mode, the FL/FR speakers and sub will be active. You can also use the 2CH Stereo settings, p. 83 OM.

Thanks. I just read that page. So if i set up like said instruction, how does it affect the 5.1 Audyssey? Does it stay the same?
post #10011 of 10436
If you set the 2ch menu to "custom" then the stereo settings are divorced from the MultiCH settings.

Meaning its independent from the 5.1 settings?

what does "divorced" mean where you are from? tongue.gif

Just wanted to fully understand this stuff... :-)))
post #10015 of 10436
No problem wink.gif

Just to be totally clear, that 2ch direct/stereo dedicated menu allows you to change your stereo settings and have them be separate / independent from your MultiCH settings.

If that menu is set to "basic" then your stereo settings will mirror your primary settings. You can't make any changes in this menu when set to "basic" (they should all be grayed out) so any bass management configuration must be done in the standard speaker setup menus.

If that menu is toggled to "custom" the stereo settings are now divorced from the MultiCH settings. Now you can make changes in that menu and it will store them separately from the MultiCH settings, and these alternate settings will automatically be active when you are listening in a 2ch mode.

Well...I would think that the audyssey settings are still in play for the two speakers right ? Just to clarify.

I think when in 5.1 mode or Audyssey mode, yes the 5.1 will "override" the 2.1 settings. But when your source is only 2.1, the the "Custom" settings of 2.1 will take precedence. Thats what I understand from batpig's explanation.

Correct. Audyssey is in play as long as it's enabled. The same EQ is used on the FL/FR speakers regardless of whether only 2.0 or 5.1 setup, rather the 2CH custom setup simply allows you to set the FL/FR to LARGE if you prefer and also to turn the sub OFF if you prefer as well.

I am having networking issues after upgrading my 3311ci to the latest firmware. Immediately after the upgrade things appeared to work fine. Two days later, my AVR is not able to connect to my LAN. I tried DHCP and manually assigning an IP. Neither works now. The AVR displays a message saying that it is "Assigning Network" and then "No Network Connection". The projector displays "check config" after this happens. I tried a microprocessor and a network reset. Also tried the obvious......swapping cat5 ports, network cables, etc. Didn't help. The only thing that changed on my end was the firmware upgrade. Does this ring a bell? Everything else is working, just no internet access.mad.gif
