Okay, then I do have it set right. I admit I'm using a very high tech way of checking the subwoofer: I'm putting my hand on it and checking for vibration. biggrin.gif All the LFE and such is set correctly, I've just never had a sense it was producing anything. Thank you for the info.

Next question. I have a 1912 2 Zone receiver. But I have three speaker zones in my house. Is there anything like a 2 channel speaker wire zone splitter thing? I want to set up all the speaker wire once, and be able to somehow easily alternate between sending a Zone 2 two channel speaker set up to two separate sets of speakers (one in the kitchen, the other on the roof deck).

Does such a device exist? If so does anyone know where I can purchase one? Thanks!

You are looking for a multi zone impedance matching speaker selector (eg. http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=109&cp_id=10903&cs_id=1090305&p_id=6857&seq=1&format=2); however, note that connecting more than 2 sets of speakers to the 1912 may cause the AVR to shut down in protection mode. The safer configuration would be to connect the speaker selector to an external 2CH amp to power the multi room speakers; however, the 1912 does not feature Zone 2 pre-outs.

Searched the thread multiple times , however haven't found the answer to my question. Please bear with me if this has been answered before.
I have a PS3 remote which is Have setup to use with XBMC on my PC via Bluetooth , I have also set the PS3 remote to control my Samsung LED TV using a 3 digit Remote control code. However I am now trying to setup the PS3 remote control to also control my Denon 1912 but cant get a proper 3 digit code to set it up. Any pointers ?

I have tried the suggestions from here but no help.

If the codes don't work some remotes let you scan the codes by putting in code mode than hitting powering on or channel up etc...until maybe it hits a code that will work. If the ps3 allows for learning just point the Denon remote and program in the commands. You could also call Sony Support and maybe they might have a code that will work. If all else fails you may want to try something like a Harmony remote.

By the way......I shipped my 3312 in for repair (blown amp) directly to Denon. Had it back in 7 days time including shipping days . Grat service. They even called to check up on the repair. 1st class.

Yes rerun Audyssey as the external amp will change the volume structure.

Suddenly sound stopped working right on my 2112. So I unplugged the unit, reset the microprocessor and reran the setup. I have my cable box going from HDMI to the receiver. The receiver is HDMI to my TV. I am going through the setup on my laptop as I look at the TV. The odd thing is if I switch to HDMI out to TV I get sound coming out of the TV speaker. But I go back to AMP and no sound out of the surround speakers. Nothing has changed since the last time everything was working besides my steps above. We turned the system off, went to the store, came back and it didn't work. Any ideas? The one thing I haven't done yet is setup Audessey, but should that really matter as a basic setup?

Check to see if the cable box got a firmware update as that can sometimes be the cause of HDMI handshake issues.

If that was the case, is there another way to clear the receiver besides holding preset 2-3 and power? I am on hold with tech support to see what they say in the mean time.

I have a denon 1712 hooked up to my PC and 42" lg HDTV.

I've been having a problem where my hdmi will cut out in one form or another while using my pc, either the audio will cut out and go to onboard or the video will go blank. It doesn't happen to often but enough to have me wondering whats going on. I got some suggestions from my pc forum but wanted to get some input from here.

The most common time this happens is when a screensaver comes up but sometimes it'll be for no reason.

After checking the test tones and having me unplug the sub line and tap it with my finger to make sure the sub was working, tech support immediately said the audio part of the receiver was broken. He said it was rare but to take it to the nearest service center. Took me a good chunk of the afternoon finding the receipt, so I am driving it over to the closest one tomorrow.

Question regarding the HDMI OUT Monitor 2 jack on my 3312. Currently, I'm using the '1' as my primary connection to my television, and in a few weeks hope to get around to installing some outdoor speakers and utilize Zone 2 for audio output. Say down the line I'd like to invest in a projector and outdoor screen to watch movies in the backyard on a nice night with the family. Would I be able to utilize the HDMI Monitor 2 jack to the projector and assign it (video out) to Zone 2's audio? Is the Component Monitor OUT assignable to Zone 2? Or would I be forced to only being able to assign the Composite video to Zone 2? I'm thinking that I can utilize the HDMI Monitor 2 jack for what I'm going to refer to as Zone 2, but it will be the same source as 'Main Zone' (displaying exact same content on both HDMI OUTs)....which I can live with for when I use this feature.

Thoughts? Is anyone currently using both HDMI OUTs, and if so, how have you implemented them?
post #17504 of 18955
I have a 3312ci and do the following:

Output HDMI 1: Main to 73" DLP ,
Output HDMI 2: Sub to HDMI to Cat5 Balon, and run to guest room, 24" Vizio LED

It occasionally gets hung up but for the most part it works.

I also use HDMI standby so HDMI 4 is always the default source even when AVR is off.

The issue sometimes is refetching the audio since since the TV is 2.0 sound and the upstairs is 5.1.

Not sure what else to add, but it has been known to lock up on handshakes. Of course much of that is the HDMI / ethernet balaons used in this scenario I would imagine.

Having trouble with my HDMI passthrough on 1712. When first powering on TV and Sat. receiver the audio/video will display for about 3-4 seconds, then both audio/video go out...until I power on the Denon and select the correct input.

Is this normal?

Also, I still can't get the TV, SAT, and Denon to power on/off together. With HDMI-CEC on or off on my Samsung still same problem.

Thoughts?
post #17506 of 18955
With HDMI Control set to ON and the Standby Source set to the CBL/SAT source, power OFF the AVR and then power it ON again. Whether HDMI-CEC works as you desire is really dependent on the components in the chain as it does not always work as desired. Ensure the "P. OFF Control" setting is set to "ALL".

1. No. The HDMI Monitor outputs only apply to the same main zone source. (the 3313CI is able to output HDMI to Zone 2).
2. No. The component monitor output only apply to the main zone source. (the 3313CI is able to output component to Zone 2).
3. Correct. As noted on p. 6 in the Owner's manual, only S-Video and composite video can go to Zone 2.

Hey all, I'm having an issue with Netflix and my 1712. If this problems been addressed, I apologize but could not find it with a google search.

So when watching Netflix streaming movies that have DD+ 5.1 soundtracks, I notice sometimes that the left channel and center channel appear reversed. The dialogue is all coming out of the left speaker, and things like music and other sound effects are coming out of the right. I know everything is wired properly, I've tested just about every audio signal the receiver can handle. And it's definitely not all DD+ signals but I have noticed it with several. Now I don't have anything that has DD+ except Netflix.

Netflix is being run off my WD TV Live box, connected via HDMI to the AVR.

Any ideas? Anybody seen this? I'm going to try Netflix on my Blu Ray player and Xbox 360 too to rule out the WD Box. But like I said, it's not all Netflix titles. Is it possible these streams are messed? Really annoying. Thanks for the help.

Thread Starter 
If the problem is specifically restricted to one type of source (Netflix) and other multich sources play properly, it's pretty safe to assume that the source itself (and not the receiver) is at fault. Definitely test out Netflix from your other steaming devices to confirm.

Thanks, I'll give this a try.

One more thing...is it possible to use one input for audio, and another for video at the same time? For instance, listening to music through the AUX input while displaying video from SAT?

thanks!

Yes it is possible. There are two ways to do this. I use both at different times.

The way I do it is I connect the component cable out from your Sat. box to the assignable component in, to avr. This allows you to assign the component Sat box to an unused input and either use analog Red/White or assign digital Optical/Coax for music or what ever you want to listen to.
I use this method with the superior component video with the Optical audio from my apple Tv.

I then connect a composite yellow from Sat box out to avr composite Sat/Cable in. This allows you to use the Video Select feature on nearly any of your inputs including Net/Usb and Airplay. The only caveat to this option is that when using there must be no Hdmi or Component assigned. The Hdmi and Component must be set to none.
I use this option mainly for Net/Usb.

You should be able to use the "Video Select" setting with the component video input from the cable box as well.

If you use this method please let me know; I could not get this to work.
post #17514 of 18955
Are you also using a non-HDMI audio source? The "Video Select" feature should work with any analog video input (just not HDMI). As noted by the 3312CI Owner's manual, in addition to the composite and S-Video inputs source inputs (BD, DVD, DVR, SAT/CBL, V. Aux, Dock) which cannot be changed to another source name when used, the feature should also work with the TV, GAME1, and GAME2 inputs which can only be "assigned" to the component video inputs in order to use the Video Select feature (as noted in the Owner's manual section below, p. 92).

post #17515 of 18955
Yes component tried 3 different cables see posts a couple pages back
post #17516 of 18955
It should work as long as you're using non-HDMI sources. Perhaps another XX12 model Owner can confirm?
post #17517 of 18955
I'm gonna try on the 3311; but, listening to ball game local broadcast over the Net on surround backs via Zone 2 works better for me anyway cool.gif
