Hi Everbody. I thought to start a topic for the AVR 1311 issues in general. I hope you will like it. As a starter here my problems that i've been experiencing, i'm wondering you guys have the same issues. If anybody else reading this has some ideas, please share. - I'm having problems with NIGHT MODE. Seems that after some time (a few weeks) my AVR gets to a state where the NIGHT MODE doesn't work at all for Dolby Digital. I can hear that it doesn't do what it should do, it doesn't compress the sound dynamics of the movie. I can hear this by switching the night mode on and off and actually nothing changes. Loud effects, silent talk, and that's a problem. Solution is to reset the processor, get to factory default, configure my settings from scratch and then it works again for a while. Quite annoying, since i'm using my AVR in an enviroment where too loud sounds are not really welcome during the night. Anybody having the same issue? I was wondering about a firmware upgrade, but i can't find a new one for this hardware. - The other thing that bothers me is the following: There supposed to be a way of playing Dolby Digital sources through the Dolby Pro Logic II decoder. I've read that on higher end devices this is possible. Actually even in the user manual of my AVR 1311 it's stated that when i play Dolby Digital source and press on the Surround Mode on the remote, i can change the modes. That's fine, but the manual also sais that i should be able to get to a mode where the display sais: DOLBY D + DPL II or something like that. I can't reach this mode. I have DOLBY D, STEREO, VIRTUAL, MCH STEREO, and that's it. I can't play DD through PLII. The reason i need this is related to night mode. I found that listening to PLII is more convienient in a silent enviroment. I'm ready to sacrifise the multichannel sound and have it only PLII for that gain in the front center speaker. Actually, a stereo source running through PLII sounds much better in a silent enviroment than a DD source with Night mode enabled. I can't reach this status. The only case when PLII showes up on a Dolby Digital source is when the source is Dolby Digital with 2 channels only. Then i get the small icon that showes the DDigital format, and PLII on the display that showes the back channels which are obviously PLII. That state that the manual talks about (DOLBY D + PLII) i have never seen and can't reproduce. Other than this, the machine is a nice one, but i'm still trying to find the best way to get rid of Dolby Digital in some circumstances. So far my best option is to put it MCH Stereo, that helps, but not perfect. Hope you have some comments, Cheers.
