    Thank you for your replies. I switched out the audio cable connection for a coaxial connection. That solved the problem. I wanted to use an optical audio connection but I was unable to make much sense of the user guide instructions. None of the optical ports on the back of the unit were labeled tv/cable so I decided to leave well enough alone. Again, thank you for your help.

    Usualy optical signal will output whatever is set to play(audio) and in the amplifier there sould be a ``optical in`` that can be selected(like a video 1 port)

    you should theck if the connetor inside the machine have not been

    broken on the solder side,check by moving the connecters sligthly

    while listening to it(that problem is easy to fix)

I switched out of the audio-out cables from the cable box to the audio in at the Denon receiver and went with a coaxial cable connection. That switch got rid of the hum. I don't understand why the initial connection produced the hum, but the unit is working fine now.

I have no TV box but do have cable, how do I hook up TV,VCR,DVD, and YAMAHA HTR 6030


For watching TV, your TV should have a monitor out. This will go to your CBL/Sat input on the receiver. If you have a newer TV, it will have an optical output,if you use that, you will have Dolby Digital surround when available, and digital stereo at all other times. For the VCR and DVD, if they are separate units, Run audio video from the VCR to the receiver to VCR 1, for the DVD, use Component video and optical or digital coaxial to the receiver. Then from the receiver run component video to the TV. If you need further help, post a comment and I will help you further. Hope this helps

Intermittent sound with cbl/sat. Sometimes sound


Your receiver is HDMI version 1.1,1.2 or 1.2a and just don't work with anything to be honest with you. It's an HDCP (copyright Issue) and 5v pass thru issue. and the list goes on. If you can, just run HDMI directly to the TV and optical or Digital Coaxial to your receiver for audio and all will be well again. If you need more help, just post a comment and I will gladly help some more

I am trying to get the volume bar on my tv screen.It works on everything else but not cbl/sat. Receiver is tx-sr606. Thanks


en order to help out here a few questions need to be asked? Is the CBL/SAT connection VIA HDMI? Some HDMI signals will not pass CC and or On-screen display (OSD) via certain video modes. If all is analog video, not a problem, if mixed with component and HDMI and analog, you may experience issues. Let me know your thoughts and the best of luck.

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...


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

1 front speaker and 1 surround speaker won't work on cable selection


theres probably a problem with the right channel cable or plug that connects the tv to the reciever, or the tv is set to mono audio.
