I'll update post #6 as soon as I can obtain the information. Be patient. smile.gif

Thanks for taking a look at this - just as an FYI, my 1913 received a 7 minute update as well. I only posted as I didn't see this model number mentioned yet.

I know that I'm a forum troll, as I read a lot but don't contribute. I just realized that my join date was 7/2007 and this is my first post!! ROFL!!

On a different note - I just received and installed a Gefen HDMI detective to fix the handshake issues I was having with my HTPC to my AVR. I love this thing!! It saves me from restarting my PC every time I turn my amp on or off, and I haven't had any "blanking out" since I've installed it. This is a very important aspect in my setup, as I use the HDMI passthrough when amp is in stand by mode --> 4x2 HDMI matrix ---> 1 output to a wireless monoprice HDMI transmitter. It would work ok if I turned everything on in the correct order, but I have my equipment in the basement (hdmi ran through walls) to my main living room, and then a wireless setup for when the amp is in standby mode for my bedroom tv - and it all works perfect now. smile.gif Lots of info, but I hope that someone may find this awesome little box and have it solve their problems as well.

I wanted to pass that tidbit forward.

I am trying to play from phone only. But wondering, do I need to run play on media server running on laptop like plex. I am not able to send music to receiver. Getting HTTP Error 500.
I am able to air play from ipad. Air play from youtube is automatically enabled on ipad.

Thanks for the info. Out of curiosity, how did you find this out? I couldn't find any documentation on this yesterday.
post #9220 of 10468
ritholtz, sorry i haven't really played with it much, sounds like there's some setting issue, is your phone on your wifi network when you try it? it needs to be, you can't be on your regular cell data service

Guys:

I have a Denon 3313 / Roku question. I have a Roku box hooked up that intermittently is presenting a blue screen. When I cycle power to the Roku box it reboots and the signal comes across fine and everything works. If I turn things off and restart shortly thereafter, things seem to work fine. Then, after a couple of days, the blue screen reappears and I need to start over. I had read on a Roku site that it may be a situation of a bad HDMI signal and to plug and unplug the HDMI cable. Does that make sense? It works very clearly when it works.
post #9222 of 10468
In the market for a new AVR (target is X4000) purchase now or wait next year for HDMI 2.0 models?
post #9223 of 10468
^^
That would depend on whether you're purchasing a 90" or larger 4k display in the near future and willing to wait for 4k BDPs and source video.

Yup. Makes sense and can also be indicative of a defective cable as well.

Having an issue where I will randomly get a very quick purple or green flash on the screen. It happens super fast, but it happens about 8 times or so during an average movie. Also happens with other sources. DirecTV, Xbox, BluRay etc..

Any ideas? Searched but didn't find anything.
post #9227 of 10468
Try swapping out the HDMI cable.
post #9228 of 10468
Thanks for the advice. I replaced all the HDMI cables today with Amazon basics, except the one from the wall plate up to the TV. I will try bypassing that cable and see if that fixes it.


Edit: Still does it. I just realized it also does it when my mini fridge kicks on. So I'm thinking I may have a power issue on the TV end of things!

Try installing the latest firmware for your Panasonic S60 from 8/22/13 and see if that fixes it http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/TC-P60S60?t=downloads&support#tabs Looks like you are not alone with this issue, due to discussed over at http://www.avsforum.com/t/1474301/panasonic-tc-65ps64-and-tc-50ps64-owners-poll/300_100 Changing out the HDMI cables is not going to fix the problem, so you are wasting money and time doing that, and not a Denon AVRS issue. Looking at the S60 thread on here, and the issues at http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/TC-50PS64?support&utm_campaign=bazaarvoice&utm_medium=Default&utm_source=AskAndAnswer&utm_content=Default this model has some serious issues that Panasonic is not moving fast enough to fix, and supposed the 8/22 firmware was to fix the issue. You might want to ask others that have the same set on either of the two S60 threads, if the firmware has fixed this issue or not.

Hi hikouka,
Thanks for the app suggestion. Finally I am able to make to work with receivers and as well as Roku. Input source is Server. Free version can only play first 10 files in list/folder.

I'm confused as the links you post make no mention of "serious issues that Panasonic is not moving fast enough to fix" although the AVSForum link does reference green and purple lines that are "static" lines and common to every Panasonic plasma, while the OP has posted of "flashes" of green/purple which could very well be related to a defective cable. Also having extra HDMI cables (@ $5/cable from forum sponsor Monoprice) is actually a good idea as HDMI cable issues can crop up from time to time.

Probably bad grounding somewhere (like neutral not tied to ground at your load center, as the AVR and most TVs aren't grounded) or you are picking up EMI in the cable.

I had a problem in my old apartment where digital audio over coax would drop out when I flipped the fluorescent light in the kitchen on or off. A shorter coax cable fixed it. Try a shorter HDMI cable.

Is there any workaround to play same audio in both the zones with 2113 like x2000. Are there any new features Denon added with latest firmware update.
post #9234 of 10468
Thread Starter 
If you have an analog audio connection from the source (or if you are using an internal source like network) you can play that same audio in both zones.

I haven't checked that. What might it mean if it did or didn't?

I don't think it's only happening on discs. I'm pretty sure it just happened at the start of a streaming movie on Amazon, too (also from the Blu-ray player). If so, the dropout didn't occur until after the loading/buffering time and then a short time into the movie actually playing.

Will the 3313 ever be able to send digital / non analog signals to zone 2 like the new X4000 possibly through a future firmware update? Or is more of a hardware limitation and will never be an option on the 3313?

I've had mine a little over a year and thanks to this thread and forum I have all my analog connections set up and working great, but just curious.

Thanks,
Neal
post #9238 of 10468
I'm having the same problem. I guess you never got any response to your initial post. I hooked up all the connection before I turn it the unit on and though I was doing the right thing. I have yet to get any video output to the monitor, so I really do not know what is going on, except the repeated update messages and then reset of the receiver. - Thanks

The only time that I have gotten the Green Screen of death, was due to bad HDMI handshake with the two different U-Verse DVR's, so ended up going Component before I got my Denon 1612. After I got that in between the DVR & our Panasonic TH-42PX75U Plasma, good-bye Green screen.

The S6x series from Panasonic has some serious issues with the Purple & Green lines and flashes. It is not only discussed deeply on here, but also on other forums and on the Panasonic forums. That is why they released the 8/22/13 firmware, and that is why I asked if the OP has updated their S-60; to see if that fixed the issue. They have already stated they have changed out the hdmi cables. That is also why I stated that they are wasting time and money changing them out again. All it is accomplishing for their problem, is nothing.

Basic troubleshooting would be the following: Connect Blu-ray, TV provider STB or DVR, Streaming device, or Laptop/desktop with hdmi interface to the S60 and see if they get the green or purple flashes with a couple different cables. If they do, then update the firmware and try again. If it still does, then contact Panasonic and have them fix or replace the unit. Same goes if they have the Denon in between said before devices, again contact Panasonic for fix or replace of said unit.

I cannot see people having so many problems with their sets and their AVRS, if they have known good cables; that the cables no matter what the brand is, is always the blame. I have two standby HDMI cables for when someone may need one, or when I may add a temp piece of equipment to my 1612, but I am not going and swapping all my cables on my A/V setup every other week, or every other month for grins. I have only had to replace three cables on my setup, due to one was bad, and the other two were too stiff between my Blu-Ray player, DVR and the AVR-1612, because I had originally had them for between the Panny, before I got the 1612.
post #9240 of 10468
My issue has been fixed since moving the fridge to another circuit. I was not experiencing the purple and yellow line issue, it was a flicker across the whole screen for a split second. That said, I will still update the firmware- thanks for the tip! Replacing the HDMI cords did fix another HDMI handshake issue I was having.

On topic, I'm loving my new 1713 after the first one was D.O.A
