Denon AVR-688 Dolby Digital issues

I have a Denon AVR-688, I have a PS3 and a Direct TV HD-DVR hooked up to it. Whenever it's receiving a Dolby Digital 5.1 signal the audio will frequently drop out kind of like a click or a skip. DTS sounds great but Dolby Digital has problems. I have tried other sources and get the same problem with Dolby Digital. Is there a setting that I've overlooked?

    I can't even get Dolby Digital to work.

    How do you select that mode?

IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO CONNECT ANALOG AUDIO IN ADDITION TO THE OPTICAL, COAXIAL OR HDMI AUDIO CONNECTION. IF USING OPTICAL OR COAXIAL CONNECTIONS BE SURE TO CONFIGURE IT IN THE RECEIVERS DIGITAL ASSIGNMENT AREA IN SETUP.
ALSO, ON THE FRONT OF THE RECEIVER IS AN INPUT MODE BUTTON, PRESS THIS BUTTON UNTIL AUTO IS DISPLAYED

How should I connect my denon avr 1906 to my 32" ES6300 Series 6 SMART 3D Full HD LED TV Model numberUE32ES6300U in order to get dolby digital from the tv's tuner please?


Use an optical cable.

Be aware though. Your TV has a DVB-T tuner. It picks up the Freeview standard definition (SD) channels, but not the Freeview HD ones. Dolby Digital sound only comes from the Freeview HD channels.

Your TV will pass Dolby Digital from any source connected to a HDMI port to the Optical Out. It will also pass DTS. But the internal Freeview DVB-T tuner doesn't generate Dolby Digital, just stereo and stereo with Dolby Surround encoding where you use ProLogic II for decoding.

How can i connect my denon 5805ci with my new tv 4k & 3D sony 65"


Are you sure that model is HDMI v1.4 compliant? I know my Denon 8508 is not so I use optical outs to get 5.1 surround sound.

DENON AVR-1912 PS3 ISSUE


You might just have a handshaking issue between your PS3 and your receiver. See if there are any firmware upgrades for your PS3, Receiver or both. This usually takes care of the problem. If not - your receiver has a 2 or 3 year MFG Warranty. Have it checked out or exchanged.

Dish HD-DVR connected to a Denon 3808ci via an HDMI cable. Problem is periodically, the screen goes black for a split second and then comes back. Rewind and play again the blackout doesn't repeat. When...


Your'e losing digital data from Dish or the DVR. Since even live TV is through the DVR it is always a potential problem when anything glitches. That it doesn't repeat on immediate rewind/playback says the data made it to the hard drive ok.

The Denon is only defaulting back to an analog audio feed upon loss of the digital (preferred) one.

If it affects the video AND audio simultaneously the cause is something common to them.

I'd look at HDMI cabling into the Denon from the DVR.

Don't blame the Denon just yet.

My $.02:

I'd skip the video right past the Denon to the TV/Monitor even if it means using component cables instead of HDMI, but keep digital audio coming in from the DVR. Added cabling and connections never improve anything. Plus, HDMI cables are expensive.

It would be interesting to see if the problem comes back and affects only the audio or the video.

If you use optical cable make sure it has smooth flowing curves and no small-radius bends that would lose light power.

How can i connect Nintendo wii to avr-590. Have


To connect a Nintendo Wii to an AVR-590, I am assuming this is a Denon Receiver, you will need to connect the Nintendo Wii to the TV, then connect audio out from the TV to the AVR-590 Receiver, and select the receiver to be in Pro Logic. Depending on the TV, if you have fiberoptic output on the TV, you would hook a fiberoptic out from the TV to the AV Receiver, but you will still not get true Dolby Digital, just Dolby Pro Logic. This will be the most effective way to solve the problem. Hope This Helps

Speaker interference


you should be able to disconnect the analog audio cables from the cable box and Denon, with the HDMI connected, press the input mode button on the front left of the reciever to select auto and that should fix the issue

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.

No dolby digitaL ON BLU-RAY FIMLS played thro a ps3,


prologic is a form of dolby digital, the 4.0 or 5.1 (versions I and II respectively) to be exact. the type of dolby version is determined by the source disk. the reciever may expand a dolby digital signal into 7.1 but it is actually a 5.1 standard, as is prologicII
