  1. Hi folks, Yesterday I unpacked a nice new AVR and connected a spiffy little Windows 10 set top box to it. In short order I had configured Windows to output up to 7.1 channels to the AVR over HDMI, and clicking the test button from the windows audio test utility for each speaker was rewarded with test tones coming from the correct speaker. The AVR was confirming it as receiving 7.1 audio. Hooray. That was easy. However, no matter which video player I use (Emby Theater, Kodi, MP-CHC), the AVR still reports 7.1 channels instead of switching to directly match the audio format in the movie file. It does recognize other formats instantly, such as if I switch over to my Smart TV as an input source and play something from Netflix, it switches to DD for example. So, my suspicion is either I've configured something in Windows that is overriding the player settings and forcing the computer to remap whatever audio stream is playing, to a 7.1 configuration. In Emby Theater, for example, I've told it to use the Denon AVR as the output device and that my speaker configuration is 7.1. I've done similar configurations for my other players. I think I've probably done something silly, but this is the first time I've done audio over anything other than SPDIF, and even that I configured years ago. Any ideas to help me troubleshoot this would be appreciated!! Marc
  2. I find myself more often than not using the web interface or the iOS app to initiate playback on various displays I have in my home as I am sure many of you do. This is great - however what is severely lacking is the ability to control other aspects of my media environment - specifically powering on/off my TV and AVR as well as controlling volume etc. These days almost any modern AVR or TV worth its salt has IP control built in. And if it still needs IR then there are devices like Global Cache's iTach to control it. All these devices can be controlled via simple commands that can be sent and received over HTTP. My question is this - is it possible to build a plugin that could render support for these devices from within the web/app interface? And if so - are people interested in this? I for one would LOVE to ditch my other automation control apps and use the Emby app alone for control over it all. Thoughts?
  3. Hi folks, please take me to school. As the title suggests, I'm in the market for a new A/V receiver. My current one is an Onkyo TX-SR603X. It's a beast of a thing, been using it since 2005, but it doesn't support HDMI inputs, and I may be redoing my home theater setup in a way that requires HDMI input. Currently, I'm going direct from HTPC (a circa 2009 PC) via HDMI to the TV (bypassing the AVR), and optical SPDIF to the receiver. The TV's optical out is also an input to the AVR, so the built in TV Apps like Netflix can stream 5.1 to the receiver. To be clear, I'm not an audiophile. Because my AVR can't decode HD Audio, I haven't even bothered ripping HD tracks so far. I've got one big beef with the Onkyo, that I want to fix with its replacement: My wife and I are sensitive to audio lip sync issues. It seems every source of media has a different offset when played through my system. Netflix from the TV to the AVR has one delay. Hulu from the same TV output to the AVR is off my maybe 100 msec compared to that. Even from one Bluray rip (MKV) to another, played by my HTPC, may be off. Drives us nuts. WHAT I WANT: The remote for the AVR should have an audio delay adjust button on the remote, so I can change the delay on the fly, increasing or decreasing the delay, to match that particular device/show/phase of moon to get it right, as needed. I don't want to have to go into some funky configuration mode and futz around with it, I just want to move change it with the same ease I would change volume or the channel on a TV. Another thing I like about the AVR that I want the new one to do is to convert DTS 5:1 into a quasi 7.1... on my Onkyo it's called DTS Neo:6 or something like it. It simulates rear surround. I have 7.1 speakers; the AVR has discrete outs for them despite really only being a 5.1 AVR. Other than that, my needs are probably run of the mill. Several inputs of each type (HDMI, Optical, old-school analog connections). Might as well get 4K capable but I'm not a real believer that 4K offers anything better at my seating distance, and my Panny plasma (60ST60) is just 1080p. I'll give it up when they pry it from my cold dead fingers. Or when the panel dies. I'd like to keep the AVR under $300... definitely under $350. I've been looking at THIS ONE ON AMAZON but haven't investigated the audio delay thing yet. I'd greatly appreciate any thoughts on best hardware based on my needs above. Thanks Marc
