OK gotcha. Will try it tonight. Thanks!

As the 1612 is only a 5.1 AVR, unless you have a 2CH external amp connected, you won't have the option of either PLIIz(front height) or PLIIx(rear surround). Simply select DD PLII, although as I previously noted, if the front panel display is reading "Dolby Digital" and the station is broadcasting a stereo 2.0 signal over a DD 5.1 audio track, you won't have the option for plain DD PLII either.

Also note that "average" listening volume will generally be -30db to -20db/50-60 (TV) and -20db to -10db/60-70 (movies/music). Make sure you have Audyssey Dyn EQ set to ON.



No, it's "EVENING".

Thanks for the tips. I ran the audyssey setup again and turned ON the Dynamic volume as 'Day'. I would say it increased the volume in general even though not a whole lot of difference in experience. Still I can hear a clear difference between how internet radio and the other sources(ps3,ipod) sound.I will keep playing with it for few more days.
Has anyone felt a discomfort on ears(like the pressure rising up) after listening for sometime? I'm sure it has something to do with the subwoofer but the sub volume is kept at mid level. Is there anything else I can try - like change bass settings or change the sub placement? Right now it's placed close to the TV and the front speakers. I really desperately want to get this incredible 2112-energy take classic combination working for me too as it does for others

You can use the setting (p. 103) to even out the difference in master volume between sources. Also, if you have some flexibility in the placement of your sub, try the sub crawl.
post #12095 of 18957
Thanks..will try that and keep you posted.

I've looked through the 2112CI manual and also batpig's site, but I can't find the answer to this:

Are the Zone 2 pre-outs simultaneously active if you are amp-assigning the back surround channels to Zone 2?

In other words, I'd like to run a 5.1 setup in the Main Zone along with an amp-powered Zone 2 but also output the Zone 2 signal to an additional secondary source (intercom system). Can I do this at the same time?

Yes, you can.

Did you get this solved? Are you getting sound from the receiver?

Yes he posted earlier today. it was the "input mode" setting.

I had this problem a few months back with my Denon AVR 987. I finally purchased a 1912 which solved the issue. The true issue resides at NBC or your local NBC affiliate. Feel free to PM me if need be.

Sweet. Thanks for verifying, JD!

Should I need to run Audyssey setup again if I took my Emotiva amp out and going to power with 3312?

Also, will the 3312 power a 4 ohm center or is that not safe?
post #12103 of 18957
^^
Yes, and yes, it's safe.
post #12104 of 18957
I have just bought a 1312 and am finding it perfect except for one issue... the damn volume icon on screen! It's obstructive and very ugly, I know I can't disable it on this model but if I exchanged it for a 1612 would that have the option to remove it?
post #12105 of 18957
Don't know if anyone has tried this but today I connected a 1912 to a wireless n gaming adapter and it works great. I get internet music and I can use the android app on my phone with it.

I'm sure this is old news.

I could also bridge a connection from my htpc but I think that strained the computer a bit.

Too funny ... a couple of years ago, there were folks paying $150 more for the 2310CI just to get the volume displayed on the TV, which at that time was the lowest model with that capability. Yes, the 1612 will allow you to turn the volume display OFF.

Yup ... that's one of the ways to do it (also mentioned in post #3 of this thread).

Feeling pretty good now as Hometheater mag has just reviewed the Marantz 6006 and it scores the highest point for performance and value

Either that or you saw it mentioned in this thread as it's been discussed a few times as well.

Hey guys,

I usually run in Arch Linux with no issue, but today I restarted in Windows and I all got was a Black Screen.
After many attempts I realized that when my Radeon'd HDMI is connected to the AVR I get a black screen but when it is hooked to the TV it is all good...
I do not have that issue in Arch Linux and I did not have it either with my previous AVR in Windows.
Any idea?

I've tried a bunch of things I found on google but no-go....
Thanks!

Hello everybody, happy to join your community, my first post here.

And I will start from a problem I have.

I own denon 2312Ci, I have connected two fronts and a sub.

Before and after audyssey setup I tried to play 63hz and 80hz samples with crossover set to 100hz/80hz, speakers set to small (tried in large also with advanced crossover for fronts to 100hz), but I clearly hear the sound from front with sub off and sub on. All looks like double bass. Changing fronts to large full band does not make any differences in loudness of a sound.

Please advice, is it supposed to be like this? Is there any sound in working systems? I understand that crossover is not a "brick wall" but I really don't hear any difference with crossover on and off. The only thing I know that if I set crossover to 250 my sub give more bass, so crossover sends signals to sub as supposed, but does not cut it from fronts. I have the same settings for crossover in stereo/2 CH.

I did processor reset. All the same.
Sub connected to LFE, in settings it is LFE only. Without +mains.

Thank you!
Andrey

The same publication reviewed the 3312 and managed to give it a different rating, which certainly calls their credibility into question. I don't even bother with reading the flowery text of their reviews any more - just go straight to the bench test section at the end. It's a lot more clear what products are real value when you look at that data.

And pray that the advertisers have not been influencing them to fudge that too.

Refer to the "HTPC" item 12(k) in the Troubleshooting section of the AVR Guide linked in my sig (post #3) for some suggestions.

Try a different hdmi input on your Denon or another hdmi cable, Update or roll back your Radeon driver.

I'm not completely sure because I don't use linux and haven't had EDID issues with my HTPC, but I think the EDID overrides may be only for Windows.

Re-reading geearf's post though, the solution may be in there for his problem in Windows so NM and carry on.

Do you have one special part in mind?

I tried installing the inf for the EDID thing but no-go....

Since the same port and cable work with another OS (and worked with another receiver), I doubt that is the case :/

I tried with 2 different Catalyst:
an older 11.X, forgot which one and the latest 12.4 but same.

I didn't really follow, but it seems you have an idea


By the way, in safe mode it worked fine, and once rebooted without catalyst installed too.... Harsh.
post #12120 of 18957
Search in the HTPC Forum. I haven't had this issue so haven't had to address it. Others over there have and there are solutions available. If you don't find an answer after doing a search to see if there already a thread post your question there.
