Question about Denon AVR-3802 Receiver
I hat do change the digital input assignments on the AVR-3802. But after a few tries one after the other was not recognized anymore. Now all three optical inputs are "ignored" which means although an optical source is connected the receiver takes the analog input instead. Before I send the receiver for repairs I'd like to try a microprocessor reset which may solve the problem but how do I do this? I cound not find anything in the manual about this.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

If you've done that already and still no response from your system, I would suggest to take back to the place where you bought it and ask them to check it for you. Tell them that you follow the user's manual to the "T" but still unable to make it work.

Those are not compatible speakers for this unit. The Denon receiver does not have any speaker outputs for that type of speaker.
The Denon speaker outputs are full range outputs. Your speakers are not designed for that, they need an amplifier that has seperate outputs for the highs and lows.
By using these speakers you will probably damage them and they will not sound very good as well. The tweeters will end up fried and it is also likely that if one of the speakers goes bad, it will blow one of the channels in the amplifier.
If you really want to do it anyways, and don't say I didn't warn you, you could connect them using the "A" and "B" speaker outputs. Connect the woofers on one set, lets say "A", and the tweeters on the other, lets say "B". Right channel "A" would be the woofer and right channel "B" would be the tweeter for one speaker.
When listening to the unit you would need to engage both the "A" and "B" speaker to hear anything from both speakers, there are buttons on the display for the speakers marked "A" and "B" and in the display you would see little icons that light up when the speakers are engaged.
I can not stress it to you enough that this is not a good idea to use these speakers with this type of receiver. Do this at your own risk and be prepared to pay about $150 to $200 for the repair bill after the amp blows a channel.

SOURCE: Denon AVR-3802 Problem
Check that your speaker cables are not touching each other at the amp end and also at the speakers as this will cause the amp to shut down.
hope this helps.

If it is set to automatically detect connections then by default it will send signal to the one with the highest bandwidth, much like back in the day when you might have S video and composite connected simultaneously to the same input. So if you have your HDMI input assigned to DVD it will output that over optical or coaxial.
