post #18391 of 18963
I'm having a problem trying to access a DNLA from my 2112ci. I just installed plex media server on a Synology NAS. I initially put a few mp3 files in a music directory and was able to access them by hitting the Source Select then navigate to the Media Server item. Once I do that the navigation menu dissappears from my tv (connected by hdmi). So I use the receiver display to continue. The display changes to net/USB briefly then brings up the name of the plex server. Then it was kind of a hit or miss process of what to do next. I tried hitting enter, tried using the arrow keys, I went back to source select and somehow I finally saw the first category show up (videos). I then was able to use the arrow keys to navigate into the directory for a song and was able to play it. So then thinking that I got it working more or less I added a photo section to the plex server and put a few images in there. I was able to navigate again to the photo section and start to play them. The name of the images changed on the front panel but I never got any image on the tv. As soon as I changed the source to cable box I got my picture back. But then going back to media server I get no no images on the the tv. I then tried to at least play the music files again and I couldn't even navigate to the category sections again. The name of the plex server appeared in the display but I couldn't do anything from there. FWIW I can access and play anything on the plex from a client on a PC on the network. I looked in the manual and the information there regarding this function is less than sparse. Does anyone have any ideas. What I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks,
Chris

I have a 3312 and bought an Emotiva 3 channel amp. My set up is 5.1 with front height. The 3 new channels are driving my front L/R and center channels.

does anyone know if I can now bi-amp my front L/R with the unused channels on my 3312? If so, does it matter which channels i should use from the 3312? Thanks for any advise here.
post #18393 of 18963
Sorry, but no. Just as is the case with the lower "CI" models, the 3312CI is a 7CH AVR so when going from 5.1 to 7.1 you have 2CH left with the choice of "either" Front Height or passive bi-amp (but not both). The extra Front Height/Wide speaker posts are provided for convenience only. You would have to upgrade to the flagship model, 4520CI to get the "free-amp assign" feature to reassign unused amps as needed.

Thanks for your response jd

But to be clear you would pretty much NEVER want to use the receivers internal amps to "mix" bi amp with the external amp. For one thing it's essentially pointless, but there is a high potential for screwup too.

Is Cinema EQ even useful now that the superior Audyssey features are on board?
post #18397 of 18963
Nope.

my 3312 Center and Surround Sound Amps went out on me...thought maybe is was just ESPN having trouble with the COMENTATOR FEED...can get NO TEST TONE for CENTER & SURROUND...

reset Microprocessor and used LOAD feature...NO JOY, gonna watch Colorado State Vs. Colorado before I mess with it some more...
post #18399 of 18963
What is the surround mode displayed on the front panel display? Try powering off the AVR and resetting again a few more times.

Now surround mode is PLII C A-DSX; will reset a few more times when game is over & all day tomorrow as Denon is closed.

My FR amp section failed before.

halftime re-set microprocessor x 2, Center & Surrounds came back, for now, some intermittent crackle in the Center...LOAD x 2 FAILED, will try again after the game

Hi SanchoPanza, curious if you checked the speaker wires and connections at both end.
post #18403 of 18963
Good question, since I didn't say, but, that was the 1st thing I checked; have them all connected with Bananas on both ends, too.

it has cut off on it's own 3 times...
post #18405 of 18963
can't get the Load Configuration to work...think will give it the night OFF & try again in the morning....
post #18406 of 18963
^^^ sorry to hear about your receiver. May try unplugging everything, reset microprocessor a few times then turn it off and unplug the power cord for the night.
post #18407 of 18963
I have ALL channels now; if I can't get the Load Configuration to work, I will re-run Audyssey in the morning.

Old Sony is getting pretty good at pinch hitting for this dumplin'.

Quick question for you all about the basic operation of the Denon 2112C. I just started using this yesterday evening and havent figured out how to power it off from the remote. I press the red power button on the remote and then the main button lights up. I have to physically press the power button on the actual unit. Can anyone clarify what I'm missing?

Thanks!

Any advice for fixing distorted highs with a Denon 2312 receiver? Since i've had the receiver, i've noticed the highs with my Polk CS10 center channel have been very harsh sounding with some distortion. I never ran into this problem with my Denon AVR-591 so it know its not the speaker. Is Audyssey at fault here? What can i do to get the sound more balanced? i've searched all through these forums and haven't found a useful answer yet

Zone 2 is powered ON so ensure it is powered off as well.

It's possible the tweeter has gone bad on your center speaker. Do you still have the 591 that you can use as a test? Try running Audyssey again with the 2312CI. Where is the center speaker located? If inside a cabinet, ensure it is pulled out to the edge and angled up towards the main listening position ear height.
post #18413 of 18963
If you think Audyssey is at fault on your 2312 you can always turn it off via button on remote.

Did all that last night & now NO Center or Surround channels again.

So reset micro another 6x & pulled everything, again.

Probably have nothing to do with it but check all buttons are not sticking (remote battery from remote). Maybe try blowing compressed air into the headphone and setup mic jacks.

Thanks, worth a try. Sure do not want to send it back, AGAIN.

I've got an AVR 3312 and can't play movies over my network from an NAS. My Denon Net/USB menu says "Video No Play".
Someone suggested I use a PS3, but after some research I discovered that is a game thing, which I have no use for. Is there an alternative / work-around? Hardware or software, or both?
I am clueless in this matter.
I prefer not to have a computer involved, if possible.

Any suggestions on how I can play movies on my TV via the networked 3312? Also, what format do the movies have to be? VOB, or what?

This is my first attempt at home media stuff, so your patience and help are hugely appreciated in advance.
I'll gladly answer any questions.
BTW, I'm located in Oman and bought the 3312 in Dubai at the Denon store there.

I'm building a new house here and will have many other questions after this basic one is solved.

Thanks and regards,

Jeff

The NAS must either have some type of Media Server software loaded or the NAS must be connected to a device that does (eg. PC, PS3, etc.).

Thanks for moving my post to the correct place!

My NAS (Seagate Black Armor) has an option to enable media, and I have done that, but still the Video No Play option appears on the Net/USB menu. Perhaps the Seagate media server is not up to snuff?

If it matters, the 3312 is not directly connected by wire to the NAS. There is a wifi component involved, but I would think that would just make the video a bit ragged, rather than preventing it all-together.
Oh, I can see the videos on the NAS and when I select them, the first frame of the DVD shows. If there are multiple videos in a folder, it cycles through the first frame of each after a few seconds.

Receivers do not support streaming video playback. You need some other device that can play back the video media that is "served" by the NAS. That is why others suggested the PS3. Many Bluray players offer this or you can get a dedicated media box like WDTV.
