The trouble is that DD+ streaming bitrates are lower, often much lower, than other media that may use that lossy DD+ codec. I often notice that streaming audio lacks certain characteristics of the Blu-ray or 4k Blu-ray lossless track... sometimes so far as lacking in dynamics and other good traits.

Question regarding my 7010 and eARC. I need to replace the TV in my basement system. I have the 7010 and am going to choose either the LG C8 or C9. The only significant difference between the two is that the C9 has eARC. Seeing that my 7010 only has HDMI 2.0, will I gain anything by getting the eARC of the C9 or would it be a waste of money and should just go with the C8? Thanks for your help deciding.

eARC is not the only supposed reason to go with the C9 over the C8... You won't be able to use the e-ARC features with your 7010. However, no streaming movie/TV show service uses lossless audio anyway.

In looking at the differences between the C8 and C9 on other sites, the C9 has an updated Bluetooth version (not important to me), next gen processor which LG doesn't explain about, and Alexa support which I don't care about. Do you know of any other differences that I should care about?

I believe better near black performance, somewhat higher peak brightness, and other small panel refinements. OLED's need every refinement possible. Problems have cropped up that have been discussed here and on Blu-ray.com Forum by industry professionals.


The C9 reaches almost 99% of the P3 color gamut, which is what most UHD Blu-ray's are mastered to.



Will microLED be superior? We'll find out in a year or so.

Quick question: Can the 5010 be set up for a 2.0 or 3.0 speaker configuration? My dad might be upgrading and handing his old 5010 to me but my living room isn't really good for surround or rear speakers and I think I'd like to go with 2 or 3 front speakers only with no subwoofer.

Yes. Any AVR can run at the very least a stereo 2.0 configuration.

Hi friends,

Strange HDMI connection issue with a 7702 MkII that has worked fine for years. Just bought a JVC X520 projector, with faux-4k capability.

I replaced the through-the-wall HDMI cable with a Monoprice active [email protected] one that I tested to the new PJ, using the output of an Oppo 203 running 4k signal. I have the correct 'source' and 'TV' ends. I now get no video signal to the projector when running through the Marantz. Nothing, no menus, video or any signal, even at 1080P. Worked fine with the 'old' HDMI cable running 1080P to my 'old' JVC RS46. I've also plugged the HDMI cable from the Xfinity box (at 1080p) directly into the new cable to the PJ, and it works fine.

(Stupidly, maybe, I did not test the cable with the Marantz into the projector......figured if it worked for the Oppo to the PJ using 4k, then the Marantz wouldn't be an issue. Here's the cable: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=13757 )

The Marantz specs, and the specs of the cable, tell me that there should not be compatibility or bandwidth issues..but obviously something is whacky. If I bypass the Marantz, the Oppo drives 4k signal through the new cable to the PJ, with no issues, and my Xfinity box sends a picture through at 1080P with no issues, so the 7702 Mkii seems to be the problem.

I'm thinking it may be a setting on the Marantz, or something else simple?

Any ideas?

I'm finding that I'm smarter than I thought, but dumber than I need to be.

As is usually the case, I finally figured out my problem. Doinked around with the 7702's video settings until I got picture.

7.x.0 vs 5.x.2

After two moves and 8 months, I have finally un boxed my SR6010. I posted some questions in the build section https://www.avsforum.com/forum/19-de...ild-2-0-a.html

I also figured I would ask here...

1. Since my room might be too small for 7.x - shoudl i used the extra two for wides or heights or......?
2. Did I read on here that Spottily Connect may not work anymore?

Can't wait to get it all hooked up again!

Spotify changed some requirements and these older models were not compatible, so Denon/Marantz took the app out as it would not work anymore. There is a work around if you use the Spotify smartphone app instead. You need to do a firmware update pronto as the 6010 has been sitting for so long. There was even a DTS: X and Dolby Vision update.


I would consider going 5.1.4 with Front Wides (a legal configuration in these older 11.1 D+M units). It looks like you can definitely move your seating a little closer to the display if you aren't doing a fairly large front projection screen (you seem too far away for its size), and then get the angles situated for Top Front and Top Rear overheads.

Listen up, studios! Dolby Atmos Lite™ print-outs must stop!!

1. I agree with Dan in that your seating is too far back for that size display (optimal distance for 4k is only 6' and for 1080p is 10'). Move your seating up about 5' and then with the addition of a 2CH external amp you can expand the SR6010 from 7CH --> 9CH and add 4 in-ceiling speakers (ie. 2 in front of the seating about 6' and 2 in back of the seating) for a 5.2.4 setup. If in-ceiling is not an option, you can also mount front wall and rear wall or do a 9.2 setup (ie. Front Wide and Surround Back).
2. The on board Spotify was removed and now the Spotify Connect app is used from a phone/tablet.

Hi all.

When I’m watching watching a BD with Atmos track The signal always indicates ‘Atmos/True HD’.

Is this normal? Is Atmos information contained within a true HD container or something?

I just want to be certain I’m getting a true Atmos track with four height channels when I see this source indicated. Thanks in advance for any insight.

Dolby Atmos tracks included on Blu-ray and UHD Blu-ray discs (just FYI - many studios now put Dolby Atmos and DTS: X tracks exclusively on UHD Blu-ray) are losslessly compressed using the Dolby TrueHD codec. Streaming uses lossy Dolby Digital Plus.


As long as the receiver states it is receiving an Atmos signal, you should be good to go.



And many home Atmos tracks actually render to 10 overhead speakers (and 24 lower level speakers). You're just hearing a smaller rendition of the track on your system. It takes a more powerful surround processor to have the option of a larger Atmos presentation.

Thanks for the info! I figured I was good because AVR indicated ‘Atmos’. It was the ‘True HD’ right beside it that threw me.

Audyssey & Upmixing?

I'm a litttle confused and have always been since I first got the 7010 a few years ago. I have an Atmos 7.2.2 setup -- is there no way to not have this upmix all the 5.1/7.1 mixes with Audyssey room correction engaged? If I go into Direct or Pure Direct then, Auddyssey MultEQ & Bass managemangement, etc. are lost, correct? But with it in "Standard" mode, it upmixes and sends signals to the overhead & surround back channels, or am have I been missing something?

Press the MOVIE button and select either the Dolby Digital or DTS surround mode.

I have tried that and that still seems to add the overhead channels. We are talking about the "Surround Mode" setting, correct?

The DTS decoder automatically upmixes 5.1 to 7.1, but should stop there. The height speakers should only be selected if "+ Dolby Surround" or "+ DTS Neural:X" is selected.

Well, yeah, that's the issue I have had the + DS and + Neural:X always turn on. I don't even see a setting to turn those off, whether I hit the Dolby Digital/DTS Surround modes or not. The only way I get them off is to go into Pure/Pure Direct.

Are you hitting Enter after using the up/down buttons to highlight the mode you want?

Yep. Actually, most of the time I get it directly from the DeRemote app, I don't even bring up the menu.

Help with Marantz 7010 driving me crazy

Can anyone help I'm going crazy with this

I have an SR7010 bought purposely to connect my 4K Bravia tv and a 4K projector to a 4k Blueray palyer and use Netflix 4K so I needed evrything to be HDCP2.2 compliant

I have my projector connected to a 13m compliant HDMI cable so should easily operate the projector

On the SR7010 you can set the output to monitor 1 - 2 or auto/duel

With my first projector a Benq W1700 having the output set to auto duel the projector worked but intermittently cut out and take a moment to reacquire the signal, if I set the output to just the projector output it worked ok.

I just changed the p/j to an Optoma UHD65 and yesterday it worked perfectly even on duel/auto output from the amp.

Today I could not get it to work on any setting, after swapping the input on the p/j from HDMI 2 (the only one 4k compliant)

it worked on my Virgin cable and the 4K player though it couldn't have been 4K, swapped it back to HDMI 2 and it can't find the source again.

When in HDMI 1 it did work the first time but the second it was struggling so I used a USB powered HDMI booster and it was perfect again but even using the booster it will still not find a signal in HDMI 2 for 4K

This is all very strange as yesterday it all worked perfectly and nothing changed, 1 day I can watch 4k blue-ray through my LG player and the next it just won't do it.

I am convinced the issue is with the marantz SR7010 as it seemed to selectively work with the Benq and now its even worse with the Optoma - yet the first day I used it no problems at all

Its driving me crazy can anyone point me at a fix PLEASE

PSB Imagine T3 - PSB Imagine S Surround - PSB Imagine C3 Centre - B K P12-300SB - B&W CCM65 x 4 in the ceiling - PSB CS1000 in the garden

I had the same issue with my two displays (front projector and a xbr flat panel.)

I also replaced all of my HDMI cables three times - no help.

Even with the monitors off and ARC set to off - the Marantz thought there were two ACTIVE monitors - and wouldn't display either.
Countless error messages - ranging rom 'your tv does not support (fill in the blank)' to 'check HDMI cables'....

My solution was to create SMART BUTTONS for each monitor:
TURN OFF AUTO SELECT for the HDMI output.

SMART ONE - the source (in my case Directv) and HDMI output (one - to the xbr) were selected and saved.

SMART TWO - the source (in my case Directv) and HDMI output (two - to the projector) were selected and saved.

I also turned off any functionality which would turn on the monitors automatically when the Marantz or sources were powered on.
Too often I would want to watch the projector and the XBR would turn on as well... then I would turn off the XBR and the Marantz would shut everything down!

Attached is a picture I made for my family to make the HT idiot proof :

Well I tried that and nadda

Smart 1 input cable t.v - output monitor 1 (t.v) only

smart 2 input 4k bluray player - output 2(p/j) only

Neither display anything until I turn off the p/j then the tv works as normal so something is conflicting

Worse still if I put on media player input duel output it displays both the t.v and the p/j

The really mad cray thing is the first day I had the p/j set up it all worked fine

Disconnect both monitors from the Marantz.
Turn off auto select HDMI out.
Turn off ARC on all components.

Plug in the XBR HDMI to HDMI output One.
Fire up the Marantz.
Select your source. If it operates well - SAVE to SMART ONE.

UNPLUG the XBR HDMI.

Plug in the Projector to HDMI output Two.
Fire up the Marantz.
Select your source. If it operates well - SAVE to SMART TWO.


Turn everything OFF.

Plug in both the XBR and the Projector HDMI's (remembering which output is for the respective monitors above.)

Now - aim the remote at the IR sensor - press SMART ONE.
The Marantz should fire up the correct output and what ever source you saved as the default above.
Turn on your XBR ... If it operates well - you should be able to select different sources.

Turn everything OFF.

Now - aim the remote at the IR sensor - press SMART TWO.
The Marantz should fire up the correct output and what ever source you saved as the default above.
Turn on your projector .... If it operates well - you should be able to select different sources.

The Marantz will remember the LAST SMART setup you used. So if you WERE watching the XBR and just use the power button to turn on your Marantz - it will default to the XBR, when you in fact were trying to watch the projector this time.

I also found that using the HDMI INPUTS closest to the HDMI outputs provided a more stable environment. Just reassign your inputs to the respective sources.

LMK...

Any experience with fibre HDMI's just in case that's the solution ?

Thanks for your help BTW

As a plan C I have been looking at 20m fibre HDMI cables and have no experience but I'm getting the feeling there is a Monster cable thing going off. You know the one where you can buy stupidly expensive cables that perform no better than a decent reasonably priced set or certainly not proportionally so.

Atzebe 20m standard 18 Gbps - £60.00

Supra 20m Boast 20 Gbps - £420.00

Kramer 20m £160.00 but only 10.2 Gbps - How can this be I thought HDMI 2.0 standard was 18 Mbps (Though it doesn't actually say HDMI 2.0 but claims all the other specs)

So will all of these cables work in my application and the £420.00 cable all the Monster hype, will a speed of 10.2 Mbps be ok for 4k at 60 FPS and HDR over 20m ?

Will the £60.00 be just as good as it claims all the specs ?

I am using these:

Monoprice HDR High Speed Cable - 20 feet - Black | for HDMI-Enabled Devices - 4K @ 60Hz, HDR, 18Gbps, Fiber Optic, AOC, YUV 4:4:4, CMP - SlimRun AV Series

They are in-wall rated and plenum rated.

I really don't think HDMI cables are your problem...

Did you move your source HDMI's closer to the outputs?
