Question about Denon AVR-3805 Receiver
My wii is connected to my Denon via a component cable and my TV to my denon via another component cable. The wii menu's are fine and so are wii play and wii sports. If I play Family Ski it flashes to black then after a few seconds returns to the game; it is almost if the sign is lost and then the TV finds it again.
If I use the composite wii cable through the Denon I get the black screen flashes in the menus and the other games.
Has anyone had similar problems; is there a way round this?

If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.
It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.
I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.
I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).
I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.
Just waiting for them to arrive.
An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.
Hope thats of use!

After connecting the Wii cables, connect a video cable to the "monitor out" connection to a compatible input on the TV.

Long and painful answer!!! However, in the end, you need to bypass HDMI thru your receiver and go direct to the TV. Connect Digital Coaxial or Optical for audio to your receiver. Your version of HDMI in your receiver is not compatable with today's HDMI version. Yours is 1.1a and the current version is 1.3b going to 1.4. If you want detailed info as to "why", just google "HDMI 1.1 problems" you can read for hours! Sorry for the bad news! However, it is what it is. Hope this helps. If you need further help with setup, post a comment and I can give you further help.
