Question about Denon AVR-4306 Receiver

Open Question

Denon AVR-4306 no sound, then comes back on

I have a Denon AVR-4306 receiver, each time I turn it on, there is no sound, either when connected to cable box or DVD player, for about 10-20 minutes. The sounds then magically comes on after the period of time, and the receiver works great until the next time I use it, when the entire process repeats. I have already swapped out the sourround sound processor, but that did not correct the problem.

SOURCE: how to connect using a LCD monitor, cable box, DVD player

You won't need the VCR, that's only used for a cable box, and since you have one now there is no need. You'll want to connect everything with the better video plugin possible. Composite (red, white, yellow) is the worst, then s-video, then component (red, blue, green), then DVI, then HDMI. That will square your video. Then send all audio signals to the Denon. These cables are usually the red and white cables. OR Plug everything into the Denon to the appropriate input. Then connect the monitor to the video out of the Denon.

SOURCE: no HDMI video output from AVR-588 receiver to plasma TV ???

You can also use a digital coax cable (color orange) to go into coax 1 for DVD coax 2 for cable box. Just make sure to set the coax in input settings. The coax cables are a little cheaper than the optical cables and work just as well.

SOURCE: 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.

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

How can i upgrade denon avr 4306 up to 1080p?


You don't need to upgrade that model as it already supports 1080P. If you are using HDMI connections between the receiver your TV the receiver will upconvert the other analog video sources (composite and component video) to 1080 content. Most likely 1080i as this is the standard format when upconverting.

No component output on AVR-4306


This does not work... You can only upscale the video signal with 4306; meaning you can covert s-video, component video to HDMI but can not down-convert HDMI input (coming from your HD DVD player) to Component video output. Sorry that I could not give you a solution as this is the 4306's limitation (written on the 4306 manual.).

On screen display


Try connecting to the yellow RCA monitor output on the amp and corresponding input on the TV. This works for me. You could also try the composite outputs on the amp. This is one flaw the amp has that the setup screen will not display through the HDMI connection.

Zone 2 Problem


Yes and no. You can get some digital signals to go to zones 2 & 3 but only PCM ones, Analogue always goes. I have a Denon DVD player connected to my 4306 with a denonlink cable. I had to connect RCA Analogue cables to the DVD input to get the sound to come out on Zone 2.
