SOURCE: cannot get dts from my Harmon Kardon AVR 300 via my Blue Ray

I'm not sure if this solution is still necessary however:

I own a H/K AVR300 and have a PS3 hooked up via HDMI to the TV and Optical TOSLink to the receiver. I have no troubles selecting between DD 5.1 and DTS 5.1. I can even select trueHD whatever format but I can't detect an audible difference, I think that mode might be downgraded back to regular DD5.1...

Hope this helps...

SOURCE: HK AVR 645 7.1-Receiver Turns off when sound starts to come through

Hello, I didn't end up fixing the Blu-ray issue, but the TV issue was caused by just inverting the positive and negative cable going into my speaker. Odd enough, instead of just not working, it just flipped the entire system off. I can definitely see that that could be the issue, another one I thought of is, at the time I didn't realize that DVI doesn't play audio, only video and I didn't have a optical cable connected. I decided to avoid the hassle, sell the TV and purchased one that has HDMI. Muuuuch better.

SOURCE: static and popping from Harmon Kardon AVR 340

Hi,

You seem have a problem with a component in that channel, the bad news is that it is hard to fix that type of problem (you would be better off if the channel died). All of the components in the final output section are part of the same audio loop (per channel), which makes it hard to find the faulty part.

Sounds to me like a bypass or coupling capacitor is faulty or need to be re-soldered, either way to fix this problem you should take it in to a repair shop.

I hope that helps and sorry for the bad news.

How do I set my receiver to read TV/CBL Dolby Digital. It is a AVR 789


The Dolby digital signal is outputted only through the Optical or Coaxial socket of the CBL box. you will have to get an optic fiber or coaxial cable depending which cable box you have and connect it to the digital input of the Denon receiver. The Denon's digital input are already assigned at the back. Eg: Optic input might be labeled CD so if you are connecting the CBL box to the optic input remember to select CD on the Denon to hear the cable sound, same goes with the coaxial input.

Can you tell me what are the functions of the two hdmi inputs, and the one hdmi output ,as my cable only works via the tv to the dvd player and a coax from dvd to the coax on avr, so hdmi on avr is...


Let's treat this as TWO functions - audio and video.

Your best video would be HDMI output (audio & video) from the cable box and EACH other video source (BD/DVD) directly to your TV and receiver. But, I'd still WATCH the video from the direct TV connection. The fewer intervening cables and electronics, the better.

Your best audio performance will come directly from each multichannel source via a digital (HDMI, coaxial or optical) cable to the receiver. I would LISTEN to audio through the receiver for best quality.

See a trend here? TV's best at video; receiver is the master of audio.
And neither one adds much by handling the other. Usually the opposite.

You mention coax. Do you mean coaxial digital audio????? As coax is also shorthand for the thick black cable bringing video to most cable boxes, connecting antennae to TV's and such.

You don't actually define what the problem is. Only YOU can be the judge of what 'better' is.

There are a multitude of (mis)settings you should master before declaring a hardware problem. I'd dive into the manual.

Audio output on TV


Sounds like you have it hooked up properly. Be aware that if there is not a digitally encoded signal for surround sound [they don't always do that] you simply won't have surround sound. Usually there is a mode in your receiver/amplifier that will allow you to simulate surround sound. An example of that would be "theater" or "hall" sound. Try it with a DVD known to have surround sound encoding [most of them do] and see if it works that way. If it doesn't then check your owners manual for information about how to make sure that feature is actually turned "on".

PC Sound Card Connection to Denon AVR-2805 or Samsung 40B610


  • Should I be connecting my pc sound card directly to the receiver or to the tv then to my receiver to get the best sound output? To your reciver
  • When I get the HD Digital Tuner, does that make any difference for the pc connection?
  • Try to connect everything that is sound onto your reciver then
  • connect all your video to your your TV for now
  • When you get your digital tuner connect all your inputs for video to(in order >reciever>HD Tuner>TV
  • Basicly everything goes to your tuner first.

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


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

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.
