Why does my AVR turn on in the middle of the night?

Have exactly the same issue with the AVR-S501BT, turns on in the night a few times a month. In addition I have the pass-through switched off and the receiver set to turn on with mute on yet when it powers on by itself it does so with sound on (from the tivo).

Why does my Denon AVR keep turning itself on?

If not, you know it was the TIVO causing it. If the Denon still turns itself on then it’s something else or you have a resident ghost… Either that or the person living in your crawlspace just fancied watching a movie when you were all sleeping. Noticed any drinks or unexplained open bags of crisps in the room?

Which is better the avrx3600 or the X2700?

Any advice appreciated! The AVRX3600 would still be the superior model. The only thing adventageous about the X2700 is its inclusion of HDMI version 2.1. If you want a comparable replacement for the X3600 inclusive of HDMI version 2.1 then you’d need at least an X3700.

How many channels does the Denon X2700 have?

THe X2700 is a 7 channel model with just 7 channel processing. Stick with your X3600, connect the next gen XBox directly to your TV and then use eARC to passthrough the audio. Thanks for the reply, so my worry about the Xbox would be a non issue because I’d run it straight to the TV via 2.1 with the TV connected to the Denon via EARC for the sound?
