How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI

I have a Denon AVR-3805 which doesn't support HDMI. I want to replace my DVD player with a BLU-RAY. My current DVD and my Pioneer Elite Plasma are connected to the AVR-3805 using 5.1 surround sound with Component Video cables. Can I connect the BLU-RAY so that it utilzes the HDMI input on the controller for my Pioneer Plasma, bypassing the AVR? If so what would happen to the sound? If I don't use HDMI what will I lose on the BLU-RAY? Thanks ...........

    Connect your Blu Ray HDMI direct to TV Plasma. While audio output via coaxial or optical to your AVR

    Hello, i have a Panasonic Plasma connected to my 3805 Denon via an HDMI cable and component cables from my cable box to the amp. I have audio, but no video. The TV is set to HDMI1 and the cable from TV to amp is plugged into HDMI1 as well. Do I need to play with some settings on the amp in order to get the video on the TV working?

The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy

My Denon dvd-2910 does not play 5.1. It is connected to Denon AVR-3805. It plays just stereo. The center, back channels and subwoofer don't give any sound


Your Denon DVD-2910 produces left and right audio output. Your Denon AVR-3805 generates 5.1 channel output; therefore, 5.1 channel output may not have been selected or the AVR-3805 may be defective.

Blue Ray Player Sound works but Picture does not


This could be a fault with the unnamed DVD player and its undefined hook-up. Does it work when connected straight to the TV?

My $.02: I NEVER run audio or video to any dievice that doesn't PROCESS it. No video to my receiver. No audio to my monitor. NO unnecessary cables or connections to degrade the signal, fail or troubleshoot.

No, you would be better off sending the video signal from your sources(satellite,digital cable,DVD,BluRay player,any digital HD source,etc.)directly to your Samsung TV, and then use the fiber optic output from the TV to transfer the audio signal to your Denon receiver, or another way is to send all video signal to your TV and send all audio signal to your Denon receiver seperately, keep in mind that there really isn't a good reason to send video into a Denon receiver, that processes sound not picture! Good Luck !

On-screen display (OSD) isn't coming up because you're only viewing picture from your Blu-Ray player. You need to switch TV input over to your receiver to get the OSD. But you probably figured that out by now. Don't worry, I've done that before too.

No video


The Denon does not down scale you can not plug a DVD or other device in to the Denon using HDMI and have it come out Component, if your projector only has Component video inputs you must use Component video connections from the DVD and Cable box to the Denon

How to Connect HDMI Components with AVR 3805 as Hub


In reference to the comment you added to our chat session:

Just connect your receiver to your TV using the same cable your receiver is currently using to connect to your TV, be it Composite, S-Video, or Component. Just switch your TV to that input when you need to set-up something on the receiver.

Denon 4308


ok sounds simple you ran the lines threw the tv instead all lines should be ran threw the sterio

see once you turn tv off this cuts the outputs out so now no sound will happen
your sterio should be equipted to take inputs of tv
you want everything to be inputed threw receiver thats why they call it a receiver the outputs on tv goto inputs on receiver
you need to redo your wireing so that this which i described is correct again
