Only my BluRay player supports control at this time. Why does Denon disable HDMI if the device doesn't support control? Is there a way to only do control on certain inputs?
LOL, called up Denon support and they gave me some spiel about how my Denon BluRay player (1.4a) was conflicting with the AVR-3808 (1.3?) and my DVR (1.1?). I was like "ok, this guy doesn't know what he's talking about", so I gave up.
Googled and happened to find an updated manual from Denon where they say that HDMI Control On disables HDMI for the TV/Cbl input. No idea why lol. I guess I'll just have to move it over to the Sat input.
