Any way to get PC to output movie (using HDMI on PC) with surround sound as my Receiver does not have an HDMI input. Yes, I can get video if I hook up HDMI to TV and use PC headphone output to connect to reciever L&R analog inputs but I would like to take advantage of 7.1 surround - is this at all possible or do I need to get a new reciever with HDMI input?

THAT would depend on the unspecified audio outputs of your PC. Access the controls for the Sound Card and make sure they're turned on and up, then cable whatever it has to something on the Denon that fits it. Neither device knows or cares that the other is anything more or less than a standard audio device or self-driven speaker set.
No, you would be better off sending the video signal from your sources(satellite,digital cable,DVD,BluRay player,any digital HD source,etc.)directly to your Samsung TV, and then use the fiber optic output from the TV to transfer the audio signal to your Denon receiver, or another way is to send all video signal to your TV and send all audio signal to your Denon receiver seperately, keep in mind that there really isn't a good reason to send video into a Denon receiver, that processes sound not picture! Good Luck !
In the 2807 the HDMI out is a video out only. Audio is not processed through the HDMI output.
If you are using speakers it is best to adjust the playback modes to stereo if you are annoyed with surround sound modes.
Please comment if I helped.
well as long as all signals are routed through the Denon your on the right track, now what else you have to do is connect all devices to the reciever do not loop one device through another. Also you have to try the different surround fields to hear the one you like the best for music I use 5Ch stereo for movies the surround field varies based on the type of movie
The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.
In reference to the comment you added to our chat session:
Just connect your receiver to your TV using the same cable your receiver is currently using to connect to your TV, be it Composite, S-Video, or Component. Just switch your TV to that input when you need to set-up something on the receiver.
Finally the problem was with the HDMI cable. When I pushed it in on the TV set the problem disappeared. It seems the connections must be quite firm on the HDMI cables otherwise anything may interfere to the sound.
