  1. Do all receivers sound the same?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I replaced my prior Denon AVR 4311 with a Pioneer SC-LX89 which is the european counterpart of the Elite-99. I did not change anything else. But I experienced quite an improvement in sound! Even though MCACC Pro does its measurements only for one sweet spot instead of Audyssey's 8 measured...
  2. Pioneer Elite SC-89 9.2-Channel AV Receiver Review Discussion Thread

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    After first setting up, I'd like to share first impressions with you: MCACC calibration differs profoundly from AudysseyPRO. Measurements are taken from but one position instead of up to eight. Yet each channel gets measured and calibrated in quite a few steps using different sounds, clicks and...
  3. what am I doing wrong? No sound in digital channels: Panasonic TV & home theater

    System Setup and Connection
    Just a guess: did you set anything at your TV or HT concerning HD-audio format, e.g. DTS or Dolby or Bitstream or PCM? To me, it seems to be a data format compatibility issue rather than a wiring issue. Have you turned Viera link on? Then, there maybe a setting in your TV and your HT, too, where...
  4. Problems using Mac Computers and REW

    REW Forum
    I haven't used that calibration feature, either. But as far as I understand from hints in REW, you can do your own calibration and generate such file yourself. This option can be found via preferences -> tab "soundcard". I don't know how this feature works, but I guess it MIGHT help solving your...
  5. Problems using Mac Computers and REW

    REW Forum
    I can only give a little advice concerning your item (1): REW comes without an official developer signature. That's why one has to explicitly allow it execution. The easiest way is to change the respective system setting "Security -> General -> Allow Apps" to the least secure one. (I'm on a...
  6. Onkyo HT-R380 receiver w/two subwoofers

    System Setup and Connection
    Yes, you got it. Good luck!
  7. Denon AVR-X4000: Lots of noise from rear speakers with Dolby Digital

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    If the problem really only occurs with the DolbyDigital/ComCast source, I'd guess that it stems from that source. Which way have you connected the receiver to the AVR? HDMI? TosLink?, analog stereo? Just to double check this, try to change the input port. If the noise vanishes then, the...
  8. Basic question about Denon and Android

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Just search for AirPlay on Android. Maybe this apps (or similar ones) will do it https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zappotvapple&referrer=utm_source%3Dmobiflipde%26utm_medium%3Dwebsite%26utm_campaign%3Dblog, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pv.twonkybeam
  9. Using RCA and HDMI at the same time

    System Setup and Connection
    Obviously, cashint is right. There are (at least) three options left: 1) you buy a DVI-to-component-cable and connect your video that way. When set to component in, your TV is expecting Audio in via Stereo cinch sockets. But as I've read elsewhere, it can be very tricky (if not impossible) to...
  10. Using RCA and HDMI at the same time

    System Setup and Connection
    Can you send me a link to the TV's manual or at least tell me it's exact model name and number so I can look for it? Maybe I can help you find the right setting on your TV set. Go
  11. Using RCA and HDMI at the same time

    System Setup and Connection
    Your TV is expecting audio input via HDMI. Does your TV sport a DVI-Input? It's quite common with the more current models. In that case, the TV would "know" that audio input must come via a different input. Maybe you can set different Audio and Video sources, too, when using HDMI as is common...
  12. Freezing video on Mac

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    There's a basic difference between output via HDMI and via network. When using HDMI, the graphics hardware of the mac is important and may even be the bottleneck. You may try to choose a lower graphics resolution and check if the playback is smooth, then. Do you have a Monitor connected to the...
  13. input selection for Gaming

    Video Game Systems | Video Games
    My guess would be that in a lower end TV it would be most useful to use game mode for at least two reasons: first - its video processing capabilities may well be worse than that of the console and lead to even worse picture quality; second - due to less processing power it might also introduce...
  14. input selection for Gaming

    Video Game Systems | Video Games
    Game mode would be the correct setting, let me explain: Game mode is a setting where there is usually as little video (and sometimes even audio) processing done as possible. That is important in fast paced games. In such games, it MIGHT be crucial if the gamer needs 0.02 seconds longer time to...
  15. OTA antenna and system set up

    System Setup and Connection
    According to its manual, the TV doesn't sport HDMI A.R.C., so you need to connect digital audio as you suggested. Since "Viera connect" seems to be just Panasonic's name for HDMI-CEC, you might be able to use it to control audio output via TV or your AVR completely from the TV. Just turn "Viera...
  16. Sony STR-DN1040 and 5.1 Audio from Cable STB

    System Setup and Connection
    Thx for your info and enjoy ;-)
  17. Sony STR-DN1040 and 5.1 Audio from Cable STB

    System Setup and Connection
    Are you sure that the source broadcast was not just Stereo or 2.0 Dolby Digital? Not all content is broadcasted 5.1-encoded. Did you set "Audio - digital out" to "Dolby digital"?
  18. REW Won't Boot - Mac OSX 10.8.4

    REW Forum
    Did you re-install REW from a current download? (current REW version is 5.00) In case you do a Re-install it is important that you completely deactivate gatekeeper (temporarily) prior to the first start. There is a Bug with unsigned Java app-packages. If you start the program after a fresh...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Bad ground is the most probable reason. Problem gets probably worse because you created a ground loop as follows: Box ground to AVR ground via rca cable, AVR to TV ground via HDMI shield, Box to TV via component. Why don't you send the box's video signal via component through the AVR, too? The...
  20. HDMI splitter to play audio through both receiver and TV?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    According to the manual (page 24 in the German version) you can assign variable audio-inputs to the HDMI-inputs. Have you tried that yet?
