About a year or two ago, the power indicator light on my 4311 went dark (i.e., no longer lights up red) when the receiver is off/in standby. It still lights up green when the receiver is turned on, and the receiver seemed to be working fine otherwise, so I assumed it was just an issue with the light and didn't think much of it.
Recently I connected a Windows 10 PC as a music server (PC > HDMI for video, USB to S/PDIF converter for audio to Denon receiver > HDMI to Samsung TV). I noticed that when I would shut off the receiver and put the PC to sleep overnight, then try to wake it back up in the morning, I would have audio and could see the cursor moving on my mouse, but the rest of the screen was black. I would have to manually power down the PC and start it back up to resolve the issue. When I pulled the HDMI cable out of the receiver and ran it directly from the PC to the TV, it wakes up fine. I assume there is a loss of EDID happening when the receiver is powered off and the PC is asleep. The fact that this is occurring with the receiver but not with the TV, combined with the power indicator light no longer lighting up, makes me wonder if the receiver is actually not going into standby mode at all, but is powering down completely when turned off. It does continue to retain all of my settings, even when I've been gone for a week or so on vacation.
Any thoughts on what might be happening here? Anyone else have this issue? I wondered if maybe there is a setting somewhere in the receiver's menus to select power options (e.g., to put the receiver in standby mode vs. powering down completely when turned off), but I can't find anything. Any input would be much appreciated.
