Been looking out for a bargain AV receiver for a while and there's a pretty good deal on a Denon AVR 1909. I know it's not the newest model out there and doesn't sadly, have IP or RS232 control, but I think in all other areas it will do the job I require -
- upscale from analog video - for my old cable box input
- 3 hdmi inputs should be plenty
My only concern is on the control side. I see it is supposed to work with CEC so I was thinking of getting one of those pulse-eight injectors
to turn it on and off, switch inputs and change volume.
Has anyone had any luck with those?
I really want all my hardware to be controllable via my orbiters/remotes. TV just needs to go on and off which I can do with IR blasting. But volume and input switching needs to happen on the amp so I need those functions...
thoughts, advice, criticism?
