post #9901 of 10465
Thanks for the reply, but how will that give me video while I'm using the analogue?
post #9902 of 10465
Sorry, misunderstood the goal. Connect the analog cable to the same source name used for the HDMI source and change the INPUT MODE for that source to "Analog" when you want to listen to the CD audio.
post #9903 of 10465
Thanks heaps. No way to do it automatically then? I guess I could set up a macro on my harmony remote.
post #9904 of 10465
Although you could use an HDMI splitter, connecting one output to one source input on the AVR for HDMI video/audio and the other output to another source name that has has the analog audio cables connected, keep in mind that in order to use Audyssey, the analog signal would have to get redigitized and then go through the AVR's DAC unless you use the DIRECT sound mode which disables Audyssey.

Thanks. The 752 actually has two HDMI outs. I was going to use one for audio, one for video, but it doesn't look like there is anything to gain from that, so i'm going to use one for audio and video for when I'm watching Blurays, and the other for video only to go with the RCAs as you've suggested. Thanks again.

Hey all,

Quick couple of questions, I have an external hard drive that is inbetween uses, I'm in the process of making software and hardware changes to my home network. I was planning on just copying my music onto it and plug it into my 2313CI for the time being, does it recognize exFAT, or will I have to do a strict FAT32 format? Also, should I partition the drive up, will it recognize all of them?

Thanks a bunch,

Well guys I have a problem. And I'm pretty sure I already know the outcome, however...

Listening the music this evening, my denon 1913 died when a base note dropped, power light began flashing red. Shut the reciever off, checked the following

Surge bar (reset) (everything else still working fine)
Shorted speaker wires (none)
Turned sub off and unplugged
Checked FUSE panel in the basement

It's probably important I mention this is a very old house, and my power bar has a little warning light saying "building wiring fault". However at this point, the surge bar still says "protection working" and is powering everything else just fine.

The reciever will start up, load the picture. And then when the typical "click" of the (what I always had assumed) is the amp turning on the reciever dies and starts flashing red.

It's dead right?
post #9908 of 10465
You have a problem if your power strip is showing both protecting and site wiring fault. I'd get that looked at before risking more equipment.

Hi All,

   I bought 2313CI few months back. Now while trying to setup chromecast, noticed that CBL/SAT, DVD HDMI inputs are not working, I tried Chromecast and my PS3 in both the inputs but neither worked. They both work if I connect them to some other input. Seems like a problem with the unit, is there anything else I can do to confirm its problem with my receiver? how should I reach out to Denon for waranty. Can you guys pls guide me.

 

Thanks

As implied above, test with the surge bar out of the loop.

Picking up my Energy RVS center channel tomorrow and hope to get this thing setup Sunday morning before the football game!

Energy RVS center
Energy A5+2
Energy Take Classic Sides/Rear
Polk PW150 sub
Denon 2113ci

Any good Bluray's to test drive the surround sound? smile.gif

I have a 3313CI. Is there a way to display an HDMI video while streaming Pandora? We are having a Christmas party on Sat and I'd like to play some movies like Elf or Christmas Vacation on the big screen, but have Christmas music playing instead of the movie audio.
post #9913 of 10465
Unlike the newer 2013 E/X series that have this feature built-in, the 3313CI does not. You do; however, have at least a couple of work arounds to include:

1. Connect HDMI video directly to the TV just for the party.
2. Connect another HDMI cable from the Zone 2 (HDMI) on the AVR to the TV and power ON and select the HDMI video source for Zone 2 while playing Pandora in Zone 1.
post #9914 of 10465
Hi Bacon13, another option is if you have another component that has Pandora (e.g. Blu-ray player). You can connect the digital or coaxial cable to the same source name used for the HDMI source and then change the INPUT MODE for that source to "Digital".
post #9915 of 10465
^^
Good point. My DirecTV box has Pandora. smile.gif
post #9916 of 10465
Thanks. I was able to move the HDMI cable from zone 1 to zone 2 and it worked great. So basically the projector alone is Zone 2, while the speakers are still Zone 1. I also have Zone 3 hooked up to the Mackie speakers in the living room upstairs via RCA

Great! Have a wonderful Christmas party! smile.gif

I'm playing a game through the game port on my 2113ci and the center speaker is the only one not working yet it Does work when I watch tv.
How can I Put it on?
post #9919 of 10465
Thread Starter 
More info and troubleshooting please:

- does it happen with all games or just this one?
- what about other content from that source like steaming Netflix
- what is the input signal when this happens?
- what is the surround mode when this happens?

Basic speaker config is universal for all inputs so something else must be going on.
post #9920 of 10465
Just this one I play.
I don't do netflix or anything
Surround mode I never change
What you mean by signal?
post #9921 of 10465
Thread Starter 
Input signal is what's coming in (eg Dolby Digital 5.1 or 2.0 PCM etc).

Surround mode is what's going out.

If you have nothing else to cross test, it's impossible to know if something is wrong with the receiver settings or if it's just a quirk of that game.

Amp assign is zone 2.
post #9923 of 10465
Its dolby
post #9924 of 10465
3313CI here. Does the network, i.e. Pandora work with Zone2 HDMI? Or can the Zone2 HDMI only do HDMI 1-6? The manual isn't clear.
post #9925 of 10465
Thread Starter 
Zone 2 HDMI can only pass through an HDMI input. No conversion of other input types including network streams.

Typing on my phone so can't check but I am confident there is a note about this in the manual. You just might have to break out the magnifying glass wink.gif
post #9926 of 10465
I guess its one more excuse to have a HTPC for all my streaming needs.
post #9927 of 10465
Does anyone know what it would take to display HDMI output from my Denon 3313 to an Android or iPAD, wirelessly, if it's even possible.

Kind of a noob so please bear with me:
A few questions:
1) I'm thinking of purchasing the 1713 from Acc4L as a refurb? Anything to be worried about here? I think they are authorized dealers and positive things on the forums about them. Do you then typically buy a SquareTrade or let it buck?
2) I have to use in-ceiling speakers so I will probably be going the LCR route. At the moment, I'm debating the Proficient C660 at 125W or OSD Audio ICE660 at 15-150W. Pair well with this receiver at only 80W/channel?
post #9929 of 10465
I have the AVR-1613 and a 5.1 setup. When I run Audyssey it lowers all 5 speakers between -4.0 and -6.0. It ups the subwoofer +1. Why does it decrease all 5 speakers and not reference them around one of them and only take down a few speakers -1 to -2?
Edited by jcalifornia - 12/13/13 at 4:55pm

The reason is because the Audyssey calibration doesn't just balance your speakers RELATIVELY, it sets them to play at a specific ABSOLUTE level. This level is a defined film reference standard, where the test tones should produce 75dB for all speakers. In this way, your volume knob is effectively calibrated after running Audyssey, so if (for example) you are listening at -20 when watching a Blu-ray, you know you are exactly 20dB below film reference level.

This absolute level calibration is necessary for Dynamic EQ to function properly, since it bases the amount of adjustment it makes primarily on how far below reference level you are listening.
