Video Inputs for Denon AVR 589

I can't get other components to work. I running a HDMI cable from my cable box to the receiver. I'm trying to hook up an analog DVD player using an S-Video cable. Since I'm using a HDMI cable for the cable box, do I have to use a HDMI cable to hookup my DVD?

Manual is here: http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-589-OM-E_006.pdf

Note on page 11 says "because video signals are out put from the AVR-589's monitor output terminal IN THE SAME FORMAT AS THE VIDEO SIGNALS, THE MONITOR OUTPUT TERMINAL SHOULD BE THE SAME TYPE AS THE TERMINAL USED FOR INPUT."

You cannot mix the HDMI with the others. You must therefore use the same on DVD and Cable box.

Best Regards and happy new year!

    Yes, seems the manufacturers of these lower end amps are always finding ways to misclarify or lead customers. You would think that it should work, but to find the conversion like you want, you have to get into their 1200. dollar amp.

    Glad I could help.

I am trying to connect ps3. (bought may 2012 with uncharted 3). To my denon 2313 via hdmi. No video at all or sound? Please help


You need to tell the PS3 to use the HDMI cable output. To test have you tried connecting the PS3 directly to the TV. Once you have that working then add in the AVR.

I have an older onkyo 1994 or 1995 receiver dolby pro logic with the amplifier and 6 disk changer wnd the system is clear as could be in cd mode. my problem is Ihave my xbox hooked up to the tv with hdmi...


No no no!
# 1. You need to connect all your components to your TV via an HDMI cable. For true HD and digital sound this is needed. Your TV (if its an HD TV) should have 3 or 4 HDMI inputs. So your Xbox/PS3 should be connected via HDMI cable. Your HD sat or cable box should also be connected with an HDMI cable. Same for your Blu Ray player.

#2. Now that your components are connect in a way which will enable you to see their media in either 720p, 1080i or 1080p your ready to get the Digital sound to your speakers. On the back of your TV you should (again on most all HD tv's) have a digital audio (optical) out. You need to purchase a digital (optical) audio cable and plug one end into your tv's digital audio out jack. Then plug the other end into your audio receivers digital audio in jack. You may have to go into your receivers menu to select or enable the digital/optical input. Then you should be rocking and rolling with true digital DTS, Pro Logic, Pro Logic 2 in either 5.1 or 7.1...

Think of your TV as the hub. Connect all the components with HDMI cables. And then your TV to your receiver with a digital/optical cable. It's that simple.

Never never use the red and white cables for audio. They were designed for 2 channel stereo sound. They won't deliver 5.1 or 7.1 digital sound.

Also... Don't ever hook up any component using the old "yellow" video cable if you want picture quality better than 480i resolution. They won't do HD period.

Here is a list of the popular video cables and they highest resolution.

Yellow video cables - 480i resolution

S video (super video) cable - 480p

Component video cables (red/blue/green) - up to 720p

HIgh definition multimedia interface HDMI - up to 1080p (full HD) and digital sound.

Hope this helps...

Only one HDMI port on new receiver/dvd player


Chances are good that your panasonic would not support HDMI 1.3b firmware and you would loose audio or video anyway. If your Panasonic has digital inputs, ie. coaxial digital or optical, run audio to your receiver and HDMI direct from Cable box/ DVD/other source to TV. On the TV settings menu, turn the speakers "off". If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you more

Lots of components , need proper hook-up


I reccomend a Denon AVR-2809. It had 4 HDMI inputs, all 1.3a and higher, and one HDMI out for your TV!

Tivo HD will not record when Onkyo HT-SR800 is off


Do you want to run all your cables thru the receiver? There really is no benefit for you to do this since that receiver doesn't handle HDMI audio nor do any kind of component to HDMI conversion. Might as well connect your tivo box directly to the TV with HDMI. You'll have to switch inputs on your TV between the cable box, but its not a big deal.

DENON AVR 888


hi dennon guy

you need to connect all your components to your receiver then from the receiver to the tv via the monitor out at the back of your receiver.

you need to make sure they are all the same type of cables. ie if you are using hdmi then make sure the dvd is hdmi output to hdmi input of the receiver then the receiver is hdmi output to the input of the tv. This will give you the best setup.

of course if u use component cables then the same principles applies.

good luck
