Question about Kenwood VR-2080

Open Question

New Component Code?

I have a Kenwood VR-2080 I purchased 10 years ago. I recently bought a new HD LCD TV and added a DirecTV HD DVR. I want to use my receiver and Bose Surround sound system for the audio. My user manual has a 1-800 number to call for adding new components. When I call this number nobody answers. It is listed as 1-800-753-9860. Is there a new number or a place I can get the component code to add my TV and/or satellite receiver?

Do I even need this to set up the component to get the audio from the TV to play thru the receiver? I have the digital video cable from the TV connected to the video 3 optical input jack.

    I contacted Kenwood via their web site and here's their reply:

    Thank you for contacting Kenwood USA Corporation. As an authorized agent for
    Kenwood, we are responding to your recent email inquiry.

    Futureset was the company that handles the remote coding. However, the company is
    has been out of business for quite some time. So there are no update codes
    available.

    Please feel free to contact us again with any additional questions.

    I then called their tech support number. I was not getting any sound out of the receiver other than from the CD player. I was told I don't need the IR codes to set up Video 3 or Video 4 inputs. A test of the output by sending a test tone thru the system revealed I have some sort of failure in the receiver. Off to the repair shop I go.

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!


Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

I have a new Samsung 47 in LCD and Kenwood DVD purchased in 2005. I am trying to hook both up to get surround sound from my Kenwood VR-606. My signal is coming from a HD cable box. I'm using HDMI from the...


Without additional equipment it can't be done. As i see your VR-606 pure analog device, and you trying to somehow use 5.1 sound from HD STB that is on HDMI put on RCA connectors of your VR-606. It is impossible without converter from HDMI to Analog audio or something likethis, best way to buy new receiver with HDMI input and TV neither Receiver with HDMI out oportunity. Then you will have your home cinema. In your current setup probably you can play only with stereo from your stb.

Won't record in HD. DVR shows to be recording, but when you click on the programmed HD channel (the one that's supposedly recording) it's blank and says "searching for satellite". Just started recently.


Have you tried rebooting the DVR and removing the card that came with the DVR if its one that was provided to by one of the satellite company's such as Directv or Dish.

Connect satellite receiver to dvd recordrer


there is really no way around it. Directv and Tivo are releasing a new receiver in a few months. Or you could purchase a HD dvr. Directv's receivers dont send any guide data thru a RF output, only picture and sound. The recorder you have is great for cable.

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.

Kenwood VR-405


more info would be nice. If you're using optical, make sure its securely in both the tv and your vr-405 receiver. I have owned the vr-405 since 2000 and i just purchased a sony 32xbr6. HDMI into the TV, optical out to the receiver, it sounds amazing!
