You're right - no point until after the break in period. Do you figure about 100 to 150 hours?? I have been making sure that I am using the full screen and not watching any channels with id's or other static items that are static for longer than about an hour to an hour and a half without changing the channel - again does that sound right?

Now for my next question - do you know if anyone makes an HDMI cable with at least one end flexible or that has an immediate 90 degree turn on one end? I've got a tilt mount but it won't tilt to it's max because of the HDMI hittig the wall.

Thanks for your time,
Chuck

150 hrs reccomended cut back on contrast and brightness and try this for an angled connector

Gotcha on the 150 - I've already turned down the B & C.
Thanks for the website - it looks like a good (read: cheap) site lol.
You've been helpful and informative.

Default Having Audio PRobs with my AVR887

Hello Experts/Aficianodos
i am having audio problems with Zone 2 of my AVR887. Previously worked fine. Troubleshooting the audio/speaker terminals...measuring approx 7V on each terminal...except for Zone 2 - left channel reads ZERO

what can be causing this? is it likely an internal fuse? or is there a "balance setting somewhere"

Default Last chance to get DENON's 100th Anniversary Edition AVR 100A

We just received noyifaction of our final allocation for 8 AVR 100A receivers. I'm taking one home so that leaves 7 available for sale.

The only thing better than the absolute beautiful looks of this receiver is its audiophile performance.

This piece pairs well with the other Anniversary Edition devices.

Happy holidays to all!

BTW, I just had a great in-store visit from Denon's area sales manager and my rep and I was told the black rain and occasional audio drop out issues are resolved. They stopped by to give me my 100th Anniversary Edition authorized dealer plaque.

I do want everyone to know that these anomalies are rare and only affect a very small percentage of receivers. So if you don't have these issues do not worry about them as they will never affect your receiver.

By next week we'll have a new firmware to fix the occasional audio drop outs. Within 2 weeks your local Denon authorized repair shop will begin receiving new video boards to fix the black rain issue.

Denon has been great in recognizing these issues quickly and developing resolutions.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for the update!

Congrats on your Christmas present! I think I will go set mine up in a few minutes. I did set up the RS40 after we spoke on the phone. OMG!!!! I have never seen such a beautiful picture! Setup took me about 5 minutes.. a little zoom here, a lens shift there... voila!

... now for the sound upgrade

All the best to you and yours!

Stewie

Guess I'm a low-end Denon user. I have the AVR-391. Just hooked it up to my Sharp 60" LED, SAT box, Panasonic BD, and Zune. All HDMI. Still too soon to tell, but audio sync problems from SAT are unacceptable, since they vary from channel to channel. The sync from BD has to be adjusted for anything but "direct", and the receiver keeps setting itself to direct when using BD, and I don't know why. Lots to learn - will check back often.
