I have set up my 2112CI and i am loving it. My first experience with HT and didn't know what I was missing. Great so far.
I do however have a question about Audyssey set-up:
My room is shaped such that I am having a hard time placing the 2 rear speakers. What I would like to do is try the Audyssey set-up with only one rear, but I can't get Audyssey to run.
When I run the auto set-up I get to the screen that says 7.1, 5.1 and other. When I select other, it says read the owner's manual for more information. I did that but can't find what they are referring to.
When I then run the set-up with one rear I get an information notice the there is a speaker missing and the process ends, not proceeding to the other positions test.
running set-up with 5.1 works perfectly.
I have read through posts 1-6 and did not find anything there.
Hope I explained this clearly. Would someone know what I am missing?
It says this model failed the video clipping issues. Does this mean this model does not pass Full RGB when output from PC to Receiver and then on to TV? That would be such a shame as I was looking to get one for 250$ It is pretty much useless to me without that.
Yes, that is what it means; however, the issue was resolved with a firmware update on the networking models and may have also be resolved with new production 1612 units as well. Give Denon a call to confirm. If not, it would require shipping to an authorized repair facility for the firmware update.
I've just purchased a 3312ci and it is being shipped as I type. I've also purchased an Epson 8350 projector. My goal is to use these two together for my home theater.
The projector can accept control inputs through its RS232C port. Can the 3312 send signals OUT from its 232 port?
The 8350 will be mounted behind me, in a cubby, making it difficult to use a remote control. The remote would have to be aimed backwards, over my shoulder, towards it in order to turn it on. (I have a Logitech Harmony One, IR remote.)
I'd like to tie the operation of the 8350 into the 3312 automatically, so the 3312 will turn on the 8350, as well as redirect the video input to the 8350's HDMI input.
Is this possible?
Your best bet is to use a different 3rd party controller like a URC MSC400 and MX980 remote. RS232 strings are never sent from a remote control handset, always from the controller that is physically connected to the DB9 socket on the device. Harmony simply isn't smart enough to do it.
the other option -- if he is otherwise happy with the Harmony -- is to switch his One model for a 900, which is basically the same thing as the One but with RF. Then he doesn't have to point the remote backwards.
but if he wants to really step it up in terms of automation, and isn't tied to the Harmony, your solution will be great.
My 3312 arrived. I gave it a quick setup, just to make sure it worked. Yes, yes it does. I connected it to the internet and successfully updated the firmware. Everything worked as easily I could have hoped for...EXCEPT accessing my home LAN music.
Ethernet works: I updated the firmware, I can play any of the internet radio stations. My network "sees" the denon avr. The 3312 "sees" my computers. However, I get a "not authorized" message on the 3312 GUI when I try to access my computer music files. I know this is properly a Windows network issue, but I thought I'd ask here, first: How do enable my 3312 to be authorized to access my music files?
I posted this earlier and did not get any hit on Audessey v.s Audessey Flat. In my room, I prefer Flat, just wondering if folks here feel the same with your setup in your room. Thanks.
the vast majority of people likely run Audyssey and just enjoy the default "reference" curve going forward. I doubt many people even experiment with Audyssey vs. Flat.
the Audyssey curve will be the "correct" curve in the vast majority of situations, as the high freq roll-off is specifically designed to translate the soundtrack into the reverberant characteristics of a typical "home theater" room, which is much smaller than a theater or dubbing stage, and thus will feature a higher proportion of reflected vs. direct sound (which can make things sound "harsh").
if you have a particularly "dead" room (no reflections), or sit very close to your speakers (more direct sound), or simply prefer a little more "sparkle" in the treble, you may prefer the Flat curve.
How does the video display when bypassing the AVR? Is the HDMI input being used on the TV set up correctly?
I'll try direct to the TV tonight. I have the AVR output into TV HDMI 4. When I switch to HDMI 4 it says 1080p. I haven't tried to see what it says when I have the smaller video (assuming 720p or lower). I'll check tonight.
HI, all, reporting back, just finish setting up my 3312 and watching one movie, man this is sweet. Don't plan on messing around with zone 2 or 3 until next week.
Update went well the second time. The first time it just seem to hang. Shut everything down and played some internet radio just to make sure it was connected and then went into update and everything went as smooth as butter. Just a quick update, time to go back and watch another movie before the Family get home and I have to turn things down some.
Well I just realized easier way to do this. I could just use HDMI from the DVR to the amp and switch audio mode on the amp to digital when I need DD and analog when mixer is needed. Simpler is better. Looks like the splitter may be going back.
