Question about Denon AVR588 Receiver

1 Answer

We have a Denon AVR Surround Sound receiver, a Samsung HDTV, an XBox 360, an ASD-3W Denon Ipod Dock and Klipswitch speakers with a subwoofer, center channel and too bookshelf speakers. We need help figuring out the best way to set everything up. I've learned the AVR-588 does take the audio from the HD Cable box or TV, so I need to know what the best way to do audio is. The TV has optical out and so does the cable box. We use the XBox to play DVDs, so if we can get optical audio from that as well (maybe through the TV) that would be great. Finally, I'd like to get help on the best way to set up the speakers too. We have some surround speakers we can put into the mix, they are just not Klipswitch. Oh, final note, I've had no luck getting the Klipswitch subwoofer (with amp) to play either. I know it works, because I used an RCA to iPod cable and plugged into into the audi in of the subwoofer and it played fine. Thanks!

HDMI input connect as follows:

1. Connect an HDMI cable from the Cable box to the TV/CBL HDMI input on the Denon.
2. Connect an HDMI cable from the Xbox to the DVD/HDP input on the Denon.
3. Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI out-put on the Denon to an input on the Samsung.
You don’t have to use the optical output from these to devices since the HDMI cable allows for the transfer of both audio and video, if you have them extra use them in addition to the HDMI cable and last,

4. On front of denon after you setup and assign your optical connections, if you use them, once you select TV/CBL or DVD/HDP as a source, press the input mode button to select auto

Check the center channel speaker and the surround sound audio settings. If you do not have a center speaker, it needs to be set to off on the receiver.

Denon receiver (DRA 397) will not speak to iPod dock


IF YOUR NOT USING A DENON IPOD DOCKING STATION IT WILL NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY.
YOU CAN CONNCET OTHER TYPES OF IPOD DOCKING STATIONS BUT YOU WILL NOT HAVE CONTROL THROUGH THE DENON AND ONLY CONNECT THE AUDIO FOR THAT DOCKING STATION TO THE DENON AS ANOTHER SOURCE INPUT
