SOURCE: HDMI output from AVR-4806

You say your connected from the DVD to the Denon with an HDMI cord and the Denon to the TV with an HDMI cord and you get no DVD video? can you get the Denon setup menu? if so change the res. output on the DVD to 480p, 720p or 1080i but not 1080p

SOURCE: connection problem with HDMI cables on Denon AVR-589

Hi dmsgolfer22,

If your Time Warner Cable box is old enough that it has a DVI output it may have HDCP (copy protection issues) with the receiver. If you are having to use a DVI to HDMI adapter to connect to your receiver (output from Cable Box to input on Receiver) then it's very likely your cable box may have may not output the signal because it detects the HDMI repeater in the receiver.

The two best options to correct this are:
1. Connect the DVI to HDMI cable directly to the input on the TV, you lose the convenience of the video switching in the TV, but it will solve the problem. Then connect the digital audio output from your cable box to the receiver, although you've probably already done this.

2. Contact your cable provider and check into the possibility of them swapping out your cable box for a newer model that would have an HDMI output. This would be the best option since the HDMI output on the cable box would give you both the Digital Audio and Video through a single HDMI cable.

Let me know how it works out for your, or if you have any questions.

Hi Jim,
I tried connecting my dvr via component and optical to see if it was my hdmi or my dvr. Ended up being a bad hdmi plug in back of my amp. I was fortunate enough to have both style connections on my dvr. Hope this helps

One possible reason is the HDCP (copy-prevention)-encoded signal from the DVR, which will transmits through to one device (the receiver) but not to a second (the TV). As an experiment and a possible solution, try reconnecting the HDMI cable from the DVR directly to the TV (provided you have an extra HDMI input on it), and using the component-video or S-video plus either digital or analog audio outputs to connect your DVR to the receiver. If this works, I think that the HDCP is the problem and this is the only solution.
It may be a little inconvenient to remember to switch inputs on the TV as well as the receiver, but you could probably program your remote with a macro to do both. The component video (or, more likely, the S-video) is also the best possible video signal you can use for dubbing to any DVD recorders, if you have one connected to the same receiver. You can still keep the HDMI connected from your PS3 (or other BD/DVD) player to the receiver, and from there to the TV, since that does seem to work -- if you don't mind turning on the receiver every time you want to watch a BD or DVD. My recommendation, however, is to connect all your video signals directly to the TV via HDMI or component, and use the receiver only for audio, or for switching of lower-level video signals like S-video that you can use for dubbing. That way you can always check the DVR or BD or DVD quickly without powering up your receiver, which takes a few seconds and much more power.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the AVR's video output resolution

is set higher than the capabilities of the actual connection,

you will not see a picture. If the best available video connection

from the AVR to the TV is composite video, press this button
and change the resolution to 480i.

You are correct. I feel your pain. This will not work.

HDMI is a pure digital signal and the providers require the content coming over the Dish DVR to be COPY PROTECTED. So it will not work unless the HDMI cable goes directly from the DVR to the TV. This is to stop people from being able to make their own recordings of Dish shows, or making copies of your DVR recordings. If you really want to run things through your reciver, you're going to have to use the "component" or "composite" video feeds, not the HDMI. Sorry.

Dish HD-DVR connected to a Denon 3808ci via an HDMI cable. Problem is periodically, the screen goes black for a split second and then comes back. Rewind and play again the blackout doesn't repeat. When...


Your'e losing digital data from Dish or the DVR. Since even live TV is through the DVR it is always a potential problem when anything glitches. That it doesn't repeat on immediate rewind/playback says the data made it to the hard drive ok.

The Denon is only defaulting back to an analog audio feed upon loss of the digital (preferred) one.

If it affects the video AND audio simultaneously the cause is something common to them.

I'd look at HDMI cabling into the Denon from the DVR.

Don't blame the Denon just yet.

My $.02:

I'd skip the video right past the Denon to the TV/Monitor even if it means using component cables instead of HDMI, but keep digital audio coming in from the DVR. Added cabling and connections never improve anything. Plus, HDMI cables are expensive.

It would be interesting to see if the problem comes back and affects only the audio or the video.

If you use optical cable make sure it has smooth flowing curves and no small-radius bends that would lose light power.

You will need to run HDMI directly from TV to Cable Box. Then run an optical or digital coaxial from your cable box to your receiver. The version of HDMI in your receiver is 1.1 or 1.2 and will not pass signal correctly. The recording industry has placed many roadblocks in front of HDMI to keep us from recording.... Go figure... That's the fix though. Hope this helps

Connection/configuration issue: I have a Denon


Just confirming my understanding of your connections :

1). The DVD1800BD output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVD-in HDMI.
2). The DVD/VHS recorder output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVR-in HDMI.
3). The DVD/VHS recorder input (S-video and L/R Audio) is connected to AVR3808's DVR-out(SVideo and L/R Audio).
Right?

What other inputs have been connect to your AVR3808?
Does the recorder have Component Video inputs?

Please also connect DVD1800BD's output(Component video, S-Video and L/R Audio) to AVR3808s' DVD-in similar inputs and try recording onto your recorder.


Actually, its possible that you may be having a HDMI HDCP communication issue(High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) with the source product (DVD1800BD). First check with the source equipment manufacturer for any updates to their products.

If HDMI video is not passing through your AVR3808, you can connect it thru the alternate connection method I have mentioned above.

If the connections/recording still does not happen with the added anolog cables, then let me know , we can trouble shoot it further.
I hope the above helps.

Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

No dish network sound through denon 1609 receiver


check the setting for the HDMI connection at the Denon you may have to assign the HDMI audio setting also on the front of the Denon while in the DVR mode press the input mode button on the front of the Denon to select auto and if that doesn;t give you sound you will have to connect a cable from the DVR optical.coaxial or analog audio output to the Denon and setup for that type of audio connection

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy
