Denon DVD-2910 not playing "newer" DVD


Standard Member
Hello Everyone,

I am hoping someone can shed some light on a recent issue that has occured with my DVD Player .. :lease:

I have a Denon AVR-1910 amp to which the DVD player is connected via HDMI. The amp connects to my TV in the usual way. When I originally bought the amp (replace a previous Denon amp), I couldn't get any DVD to play at all. Having taken the DVD Player to my dealer, the issue was resolved via a firmware update and all was good. My DVD player is multi-regional too.

Also, it is worth mentioning that about 4 months ago, the HDMI went on the amp completely .. no Sky HD, DVD at all and I took the amp back to the Dealer who returned it back to Denon and once returned, all was OK.

About a month ago, I bought a Region 1 DVD which played just fine. So all was good with the player then. However, I recently purchased the latest Harry Potter (Deathly Hallows Part 2) but it just won't play at all. Also, I attempted to play Part 1 (which previously worked) and that doesn't play either !! As the Region 1 DVD was to hand, I put that in and it still played just fine. Swapping the disk again for Part 1, the disk started to play and then came up with an error. Neither Part 1 or Part 2 will play.

Interestingly, all the "Extras" disks play perfectly. Furthermore, a random pull of some other DVDs all work too (Return of the King, Twilight all work fine) ... :confused:

So, I am starting to wonder if HDCP/HDMI "versions" have altered recently as the pattern I am seeing seems to relate to "newer" DVD releases ...

Sorry for the ramble, but does anyone have any thoughts? I really like my DVD player .. I know it's a bit old hat now and it isn't Blu-Ray blah blah .. but it plays SD disk beautifully. I really don't think it is the player here but think the issue is within however the Amp and DVD are communicating (or not !).

Any pointers greatfully received.
