You know what, now that you mention it, this whole problem started after I turned on HDMI-CEC. But I have to have it on in order to use Netflix and ARC from the Panasonic ST30 (at least from the troubleshooting I did to get that to work). Hmmm. I'll try the series of turning everything on as you described and see if I can get the Harmony to pause long enough to allow it all to work that way....

Perhaps ... but you don't need the feature ON when using the Wii.

The HDMI-CEC is definitely overriding how I turn things on (TV and AVR come on and turn off at the same time... which is how it's supposed to work, I guess... but still annoying in this case).

Is there a way to get the HDMI-CEC to be input-dependent? In other words, can it be off when the AVR is set to Sat/Cbl and on when it's set to a different input?

Read the AUTO SETUP section in post #3 linked in my sig.

Just read over auto setup and it looks like maybe I will go without the Dynamic sound for now until I get a Sub. I still need to download the owners manual. Hey I really appreciate your help. My setup sounds alot better already.

Any special setup for htpc? I get video fine but no audio. Htpc is setup through a sewell hammerhead. vga, hammerhead, audio from headphones into hammerhead, hdmi out of hammerhead. The setup will send audio and video to my tv without a problem. Should I send the audio from the computer to the avr with just an audio plug? If I'm not explaining it right ask questions. Thank you.

I was reading AUTO SETUP instructions in beginning and now I'm wondering why Audyssei sets my Wharfedales 9.2 to SMALL @50hz. How to change crossover freq and still run with Audyssei mode -"Audyssei"? Or can I run Audyssei mode "Manual" and EQ setting from Autosetup are still valid?

No, it is a global setting. You should be able to program the Harmony to disable HDMI-CEC on the TV when using the Wii.

THe converted signal may be to strange for the AVR to process. Try every HDMI input on the AVR. If still no joy, then go the separate audio cable route.

Simply raise the crossover from 50hz to 80hz and you're good to go.

Sorry for being thick headed but which is the correct menu path to do that?

I've found 2 channel/stereo settings which I've updated to my preference but seems like I can only change crossover when Audussey is set to 'Manual'. Is that correct or am I missing something here? It's european 1912 BTW.

Might be a little different on your EU unit, but close enough to the below to get you there ...

System Setup ---> Speaker Setup ---> Speaker Config ---> Crossover Freq ---> Advanced

Does anyone have a solution for the Firmware Update "hanging / stopping" on the Authenticating Stage?

I've left mine for 30+ minutes, and it just stays there.

Have you tried resetting your router? Connecting directly to the router if wireless (as recommended in the manual)? Unplug the AVR for a few minutes? Reset the microprocessor?

Unless you are in a very large room or like to listen at very loud volumes, you likely wouldn't need an external amp with those speakers either; however, if you are considering preouts at all and don't want to go to the 331X series, consider the Marantz lower models as they generally feature FL/FR preouts at a minimum.

Thanks for the reply. Is there an advantage and/or large disadvantages in going with brands like Marantz, Anthem, Pioneer Elite etc aside from auto room correction choices (assuming not Audessey, but I didn't look yet)?
post #10005 of 18963

You're going to have some that prefer one brand over another, but in the end it's mostly based on which Auto EQ might be preferred (if demo'd at all) and what features a particular brand's models offers. For the past couple of years, with a few exceptions, Denon and Marantz AVRs are clones of each other.

It's connected directly to the router, I could try to connect it directly to the modem?

I've tried resetting the router and also unplugging the AVR for a few minutes with no luck.

How do I reset the microprocessor?
post #10007 of 18963

depends on which model you have. Refer to p.1 to reset.

The first few posts in this thread contains a FAQ and there are instructions on how to reset the microprocessor.

I posted this in the Speaker section as well:

When I originally bought my Denon AVR-1912, I bought a 5.1 sub/satellite system, which is not making me happy. The satellites are mounted on the ceiling, and they are only able to reach down to 150 Hz. I am planning to buy 2 bookshelf speakers to go beside the TV. Is there any reason that I can't add a speaker selector and use both the satellites and the bookshelf speakers across the front? I realize that the crossover will be set around 80 Hz for the bookshelf speakers, and that the sub will no longer be filling that gap, but will this work?

no, what you want to do is use the ceiling speakers as HEIGHTS and then have a new pair of front L/R mains.

is your center channel up at the ceiling as well? all three primary front speakers (L/C/R) are important so if you get new bookshelf speakers, budget for a matching center as well.

Can I use heights if I also use Zone 2? If not, will the setup I described above work at all?

My center is just above the TV, and I do plan to purchase a new one that matches the bookshelf speakers.

I just bought the 3312. New to Denon. Was going to get a Pioneer 55 but it didn't fit in my media cabinet.

Anyway did the setup through wizard and all seemed to go well but I notice the volume has to be almost at 0db to reach level I like for watching movies. Is this normal?

There isn't much room on the scale to go louder. Is it just the amp isn't that powerful and need to set the volume at this level? My old Pioneer would only have to be at -15 to be booming. I'm not sure if there is a setting I'm missing, etc.

The speakers I'm driving are the Artison Portraits and surrounds.

Thanks for any info.

Although it would work, doesn't really make much sense to do it that way. You have a choice of either Front Height or powered Zone 2, but not both. If you prefer to keep Zone 2, then don't connect the ceiling speakers. Ideally the front 3 speaker tweeters should be at seated ear height.

Those speakers are 6Ω so will take a little more power to drive than would 8Ω speakers, and even then for someone that likes to listen at loud movie volume in a medium sized room, the volume can easily approach -5db. Ensure you have your front mains set to SMALL with 80hz crossovers to allow for more available headroom for the speakers. Also note your Pioneer AVR likely had a different volume scale. After running AUTO SETUP, reference volume is set to 0db using the default "relative" volume scale.

OK, thanks. I've been there but been confused 'cause Auto setup menu still displays original settings in Parameter check

Have a AVR 2112ci and plugged an IPOD touch into USB port. It plays and sounds great, displays on the units display, but no longer displays on the TV (Samsung LED)? It used to work perfectly, but now not sure where the TV GUI went? Thanks for any advice.

Those settings cannot be changed, rather only indicate what the original AUTO SETUP settings were after the calibration as well as showing what the settings would be should you ever decide to use the RESTORE feature and return to those settings.

Ensure the iPod is in BROWSE mode (p. 25).

keep in mind that your new avr needs some room to breathe... how much clearance do you have (top & sides)? is the cabinet enclosed?

I have the same problem with the 2312. Did all the above steps, even connnected to an open network (live in a condo complex) and no joy. I've never gotten a firmware upgrade to work.
Generally no problem accessing my music server, and denon android app works ok so not sure what the problem is
