Connect the optical audio OUT on the TV to the optical audio IN on the receiver. Turn the receiver on and set it to input as it was labeled on the connection ("video" or "auxillary" or such). Turn the TV on and set it to an active TV channel (with video and presumably audio info), not to VIDEO 1.
If you continue to have a problem, please provide an update.

I have a Denon AVR 888, I want to use the reciever for my audio coming from my TV, I have plugged in a HDMI into the in port and connected it to my TV, I do not get any audio from the reciever


HI,
If you want to get the audio of tv program through the AVR then your tv should have a HDMI out port. Because you have connected the cable directly to tv. You didnt mentioned anything about your tv (make and model number). So its not possible to give you a final answer.

Check on thing isthere ia nsy RCA audio output in your tv. All tvs will have RCA audio out put. Wich you can connct to the TV /CBL in put of your AVR using a RCA cable. Then select the TV/CBL Using the SOURCE SELECTOR on the frond of the AVR.

Another Way is if there is optical out put on your tv then you can connect the optical out to the AVR's OPTICAL IN 1 or 2 Using an optical cable. Then you have to got to the input assignment menu of
the AVR and then you have to assign the optical 1 or optical 2 to wich you have made the connection. Here i have added the link to the user manual of the AVR. Check the page number 22. Which shows the menu tree. To assign the optical input for TV/CBL you have to go to the Input set-up there you will find the ASSIGN on the under CD,AUX etc menu.
This setup required if you use OPTICAL input of the AVR. Check the page number 14 for the connection diagram.

IF you are going to use RCA cable the simply connect one end of the rca to TV's AUDIO OUT and other end to the TV/CBL input of the AVR. And then select TV/CBL.

Here i have added the picture of RCA cable that you nee for making such connection between TV and AVR.

RE: Denon AVR 3300 - I cannot get the system setup menu to display on Phillips P50PFP5332D tv screen? All connected components work and sound great, but I cannot see Denon's Setup menu on tv to a


I understand, it's something I've misunderstood on my denon avr-790 as well when connected to a samsung 8000 series led tv.
The answer isn't in the receiver's settings (you can be on whatever source you want on the receiver end when toggling the menu). You need to toggle through the tv's sources to find the menu (usually found on hdmi 1). I've spent towards an hour recently troubleshooting only to find that it was the tv's source that wasn't set properly and I was trying to change the receiver's settings instead of the tv's source.
Hope that helps!

No video on Denon avr 688


After days of frustration the real problem was with the cable box. It needed a firmware update. Following forum advice I disconnected the cable box power cord for a few minutes, reconnected it, allowed the cable box to reinitialize. Turned off receiver and TV. Turned TV back on and set it to HDMI connection, turned on receiver and all worked fine. Great picture and sound.( Needed to buy an optical cable to go from the cable box to the receiver to get sound from the speaker system. )--the dirtybird

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3


If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.
