Question about Denon AVR-3802 Receiver

2 Answers

Connecting Sony BDP S550 Blu-ray player to my Denon 3802 receiver.

- As the receiver is not equiped with a HDMI socket. What type of cables do I
require for the 7.1 channel analog audio alternative. (or am I talking gibberish?)
- Do I also have to connect an optical/coaxial cable?

The only thing you need is an optical audio cable (toslink) connecting the Blu-ray blayer with one of the three inputs on the AVR3802. Then assign this input in the system menu to the input you like (e. g. DVD) and that should be it. The Receiver automatically detects the sound format from the Blu-ray and changes from stereo to DTS, DD5.1, 7.1 or whatever.

I have this Receiver. You just need regular RCA (phono) audio cables and hook up between 7.1 outs on the BluRay and the 7.1 inputs on the Receiver. MK.

Pioneer vsx-5231 not pairing with Phillips bdp-2175 smart bluray player


have you tried to connect the Philips direct to the TV's hdmi?

Could be the resolution on the bluray is set to 1080p which may be out of range for the receiver or even the TV for that matter. If you can reset the output resolution of the bluray to 480p first, just to establish a picture then try 720P which all HD tv's and receivers can handle.

I did a quick search and could not find the resolution reset procedure for this unit. Other units will reset if you press and hold 2 or more buttons together.

You cannot get 5.1 sound from DVDs that are not encoded with 5.1 sound. They may be stereo, which will only send sound to the main front L/R speakers.

Sony STR-DG510 hook up with BDP-S560 no sound


The Sony manual for this receiver is not wrong, it is just a little misleading.
It does in fact use HDMI but ONLY for the HIGH DEFINITION video portion of the signal, as output from the receiver to your television. High Definition Multimedia interface carries both audio and video, however, your receiver is not decoding the high definition AUDIO portion of it and passing it through the HDMI, nor is it passing any form of multichannel audio through HDMI. So you can see why the receiver is no longer available for sale from the Sony website. The HDMI connection on your receiver is redundant unless you are not using a multichannel audio format, in which case you would be using either the TV speakers or connect an additional audio cable from the TV's "audio out" back into the receiver for external speakers.
All that should be done is use the HDMI cable from your blu-ray player connected directly to your TV. That will give you your picture, and possibly a better one since the receiver will no longer be in the signal path.
Then connect either a coaxial or optical cable from the blu ray player to the receiver for your audio. You will then be able to have Dolby Digital and DTS surround formats.
Your service person was wrong.

Blue-ray Player HDMI jack to existing TV DVI-HDTV connector


Unless your TV is HDCP compliant (sorry, don't have to research this for you), you may not be able to watch Blu-Ray movies from your Blue-Ray player in 1080p. So first find out if your TV can do HDCP via the DVI port (i doubt it). If it can, you can get an HDMI-to-DVI adapter (you can find them real cheap off Amazon.com)

I have the denon avr-688 - when i use the mic to auto setup, i have sound from each of my speakers, but when trying to watch tv or a blu ray movie there's no sound at all


Check your blu-ray connection. Is the HDMI cable going from the player to the receiver, then another HDMI cable going from the receiver to the television? What about your TV input? Is there a cable going from the cable converter box to the receiver's input?

Thats because if you look in the owner's manual, it declares the fact that it will only broadcast sound from hdmi to monitor not speakers. For sound out of speakers need to connect additional audio cable.

What port do you have the HDMI from you BD player into on the 510. If you have it on the DVD port then fiber optic will do you no good, the DVD HDMI only supports digital coax, the Video2 HDMI only accepts fiber optic, and there is an extra fiber optic for the Sat input. If your BD player does not have digital coax out, or if you dont want to buy another cable, just move the HDMI from DVD to Video2 on the 510. I am willing to bet you have the BD player plugged into the DVD HDMI port and the fiber optic cable from you BD player to the Video2 fiber input.
