Denon x2000 and chameleon problems
Hi,
I've just bought the chameleon media player and i am having some problems with my receiver.
My receiver is not responding when the chameleon media player is on stand by. It looks like my receiver does'nt work anymore. It will not respond to anything. When the media player is on everything works fine again.

Anyone any idea what might be the problem?

Thanks

RE: Denon x2000 and chameleon problems
it fails to do a handshake when it comes out of sleep mode.
toggle input HDMI channels with the denon remote and see if that is a quick work around.

Some focus on problems and faults others on solutions and success... no question who is the happy one.

RE: Denon x2000 and chameleon problems
Thanks for your reply.

Maybe I was'nt clear enough in my first post. My receiver stops responding when I put the chameleon into sleep mode.

My setup is a follows. I have the OHC with HDMI directly connected too my TV. My TV supports HDMI out so if the OHC is on I have sound coming from my receiver as it is supposed to do. When I stop watching OHC or just turn on the TV and the OHC is in stand by my receiver will not respond and my TV turns automaticly selects the use tv speaker option.

Only when I turn of the power with the on/off button on the back of the OHC my receiver starts responding and delivering the sound from my TV.

The first setup I had the OHC connected through my receiver but my receiver failed to deliver the screen to my TV so that's why I directly connected the OHC to my TV.

I hope I have made it a bit more clearer.
I will give your solution try though and will let you know if it works.

Ok you are using audio return channel ARC. i never used that but I can see that the TV forgets the ARC when the OHC comes out of sleep mode.
I have never used ARC as my OCH works through my Onkyo AVR... I don't see why that shouldn't work on a Denon must be some HDMI port setting on the Denon, time to read up on the manual or checkout the denon forum.

RE: Denon x2000 and chameleon problems
Well I have given it another try by connecting the OHC to my receiver. I do get picture and I can play movies so that's one step forward. However the problem with standby mode still exists.

I have tried adjusting the settings in the denon but no luck Sad. I will give it a try at the denon forum.

Thanks for the help Smile
