Question about JVC Audio Players & Recorders
SOURCE: I have a new Denon
The Denon 688 does not process sound via HDMI, you have to run a seperate cable to get sound. Choices are analog audio jacks (red and white) or either a toslink (optical) cable or an rca digital audio cable.

I recently got the same receiver and had the same problem. Here's what I was told - and it worked for me:
Even though HDMI cables carry audio and video, for whatever reason this reciever won't accept audio through hdmi. Apparently only much more expensive recievers carry audio through hdmi. What you have to do is run optical audio cables from your xbox, cable box, dvd player or other video device to the optical inputs on the back of the reciver. Then you customize the scene buttons to match your video and audio inputs.
You can get these optical cables pretty cheap on line or even at target. Don't get ripped off by Best Buy for these cables. I love best buy, but they rip off on cables!
This receiver is great - once I got it all figured out and running right I've loved it! Hope everything works out for you!

SOURCE: Unable to play DTS-HD & True-HD
What do you hear? Do all other modes work ok?
If Audio Select (Page 44 and 98) is set to HDMI you will hear silence if no HDMI signal is present. I think AUTO is the best choice here.
On Page 98 of the manual it says a bunch of things concerning automatic signal detection and input selection.
Initial configuration D) INIT. CONFIG
Use this feature to select the settings of the audio input jack select, active decoders and extended surround when you tum on this unit.
Audio select AUDIO SELECT
Use this feature to designate the default audio input jack select setting (see page 44) for the input sources connected to the DIGITAL INPUT jacks when you tum on the power of this unit.
HDMI set E)HDMI SET
Use this feature to select the component to play back HDMI audio signals.
Support audio S. Audio
Use this feature to select whether to play back HDMI audio signals on this unit or on another HDMI component connected to the HDMI OUT jack on the rear panel of this unit.
CHOICE = RX-V663
Plays back HDMI audio signals on this unit. The HDMI audio signals input at the HDMI input jacks of this unit are not output to the HDMI component connected to the HDMI OUT jack on the rear panel of this unit.
CHOICE = OTHER
HDMI component connected to the HDMI OUT jack.
This unit transmits audio and video signals input at the HDMI input jacks to the HDMI out jack only when this unit is turned on even if "S.AUDIO" is set to "OTHER".
I'd look in these areas for specific guidance.

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

is the cable connection hdmi? is the unit capable of upconversion to hdmi, if you use a component connection? probably not. if it is capable of upconversion, check your input menu settings
