Question about Marantz SR-7200 Receiver

1 Answer

Multiroom not playing from 'DVD' source

I have connected my DVR to DIG 1 input and my XBOX 360 to DIG2

I set them up to play for TV (DIG1) and DVD (DIG2).

I can successfully switch between them in out living room but when I switch to Multiroom to play music outside I cannot hear the 'DVD' source (ie no XBOX 360 sound). [I am streaming music from my PC to XBOX and want to hear it outside]. To baffle me even more, the TV source works and I can hear the TV outside.

What on earth is wrong with this????

Thanks
John

    I do not understand this answer. I have a Marantz SR7200


    Each input does go to a different connector (the Digital Ones).


    I do not understrand why it has no problem playing from the two sources in the main room but ignores the second in the Mutli room

Each input re[resents a zone, not a device. If your are lookin to seup multizones, each output controls one zone, ie - 1 = living room, 2 = outside, 3 = garage, 4 = pool room. If you are using a multidevice unit, the inputs must all go to one connector, input 1 = stereo, 2 = tv, 3 = xbox, 4 = pa.

Let me know if this make sense. If you have the make of the unit I will be more precise for you. I install these everyday, so this is easy.

    OK, let see if we can fix you too. I am working with someone else with the same problem.



    On the rear panel please tell me what connections you have setup for the fifth connector from the right (Mutil-Room) on the left hand connector panel

    Let me see if I can make sense of this for you. If you connect to Speaker C and turn that on (switch next to connector), you canuse this as multi-room from the primary source. Meaning with speaker C connected and on, that room will hear the same sound device a the primary system.



    Multi-Room is Remote control driven, meaning it can have its ouwn source, but requires a seperate device from Marantz to function in that manner. If you look at page 17 of your manual you will see the graphic for this setup. It is confusing, I admit, but by connecting to Speaker C and turning it on, you should be able to get the device to play that room with the main, in order to have the third room let's call it, you must use the Marantz Main Amp for Multi-Room in order for that room to function.

the receiver is ok. it is telling you that CD is assigned to digital #2 input, surround mode is stereo and there is no input signal. You need to connect a source to digital2 input (coaxial or optical) and you'll get sound from it.

I assume you would like surround sound.

Connect the XBox 360 and PS3 directly to the television.


On the back or side panel of the TV, locate the terminal labeled as "audio variable out." Connect from that terminal to the available audio input on the LG blu-ray system. Then on the system, select the same input you just plugged into. Then toggle through the various audio modes until you get the desired surround sound effect.

sometimes with cable, satellite, or any dvr, the digital signal actually is intermittent and there is little we can do about it but add an analog audio connection for each device as a backup. per se, and put the receiver in auto input mode. the receiver will utilize the analog signal to fill in where the digital signal fails
good luck

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!

HDMI input connect as follows:

1. Connect an HDMI cable from the Cable box to the TV/CBL HDMI input on the Denon.
2. Connect an HDMI cable from the Xbox to the DVD/HDP input on the Denon.
3. Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI out-put on the Denon to an input on the Samsung.
You don’t have to use the optical output from these to devices since the HDMI cable allows for the transfer of both audio and video, if you have them extra use them in addition to the HDMI cable and last,

HDMI sound?


I had the same problem with my PS3. I have a HD cable box with HDMI out, a Sony DVD player with HDMI out. The Sony receiver STR-DG800 only has the HDMI inputs (sat/tv and dvd) and the HDMI is only a pass through port and will not decode audio.
I purchase a HDMI 4 port switch from Newegg (HS-41A0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812168003&Tpk=HS-41A0) to hook up the DVD and PS3 to the DVD HDMI and switch between the DVD player and the PS3. It took me several days to figure out how to make this work with the settings on the reciver.

1 the DVD player must use the coaxial in jack for sound on the receiver.
2. the PS3 must use the optical connection on video1
3. the sound settings in the PS3 must be set to PCM
4. set the sound setting on the receiver to the following

a. on the remote press AMP button then the MENU button, next press the down arrow to you see 5- AUDIO SET - then press enter.
b.set sound decode priorty to PCM
c. next scroll down to you see digital assign - press enter
assign VID1 OPTICAL to DVD ( this allows the pcm output from the PS3 to play through the receiver), next assign DVD to COAXIAL setting DVD to DVD (this allows the digital sound to play from your DVD player).

So when you use your remote and select DVD, you can use your PS3 or DVD through the 1 DVD HDMI port.

HDMI audio source issues with television off or set to different source?


It is related to the tv, modern tv's have the ability to control different devices through the infra red pick up on the tv, and pass it through the hdmi cable back to the component.
Sony call there remote link Bravia link.
Check your manual for that, If it doesn't tell you anything, then don't worry about it, if it is in the manual then see how to switch it off.

No Sound when I play DVD's


The optical connection on the TV is most likely an input, not an output. You need to connect the Xbox to the receiver, then the TV. If the receiver does not have a HDMI input, use another audio or digital out from the Xbox to the receiver.
