Ok, hook the cable box up to the reciever audio/video, find the monitor out from the reciever and plug it in to the TV input. sound will come from the reciever this way onto your speakers and the Tv will act as a monitor

Can't get surround sound sound through tv mode, have sound only when cable box mode is on. I've tried hooking optical cable straight from receiver to tv and I've also tried AV jacks. Not sure.


The audio signal that your tv is producing is a stereo signal only - not surround. You should be able to manually put your receiver into a surround mode when using the tv input and get surround sound that way.

Connect tv to surround sound system


Connect a RCA cable from the TV Audio output (red/white)
to the surround sound Audio Input (red White)

If your TV has a "HDMI OUT" and your Surround System has a
"HDMI Input" Then use a HDMI cable instead.
You will need to set the source on your Surround System to
the audio source you use on the surround system(input)
On most it will be TV or Auxiliary.

I just bought a Denon AVR 1611. All inputs are HDMI (Cable TV, Blu-Ray) and the monitor output to the TV is HDMI. ainly I listen to the audio out of my TV and occassional on my surround sound. I would...


avatar7.jpgcurt, I bought this Denon AVR 1611 and I have HD cable. If you have cable you can set it up two ways. First way (the way I have it) is to get a switch box with 2 HDMI
out (mine has 4 inputs and 2 outputs) and maybe 2-4 inputs. Put the cable from the wall in one of the switch box inputs. Now hears the cool thing. Put 1 of the outputs from the switch box to the Sat/Cable input on the 1611 then put the another output to your tvs HDMI input. This allows you to switch from the tv only output or the 1611 surround output without touching the switch box. The other way is to buy a converter from HDMI to VGA. The only thing here is that you would have to setup your sound through Aux in the front of the 1611..........Johnmoondancer@hotmail.com

Help with AG-D9320


These recievers are prime for running surround sound through you TV. It all depends on your TV service, Now if you have a cable box from Dish network, this is the easiest in the world, all you need to look for is an output labeled "OPTICAL OUT". It's a small port with probably a small glowing red light coming out of it. You'll need to buy and optical cable and plug it in there, and then run the other end to the optical input of your surround sound reciever, and then assign a video input to that digital audio signal. It's the best audio you can get by far.

Now if you down't have that, it is still very easy. Find you reciever look for a video input and plug an audio cable in(Red and White cable). Plug the other end into your TV's audio output, a red and white output that is probably labeled audio out, plug that in, switch TV to whatever you are viewing, turn on the reciever to whichever input you assigned and there you go.

If your TV doesn't have an audio output, then you need to go to your cable or sattleite box, and find the audio output, the R/W(Red & white), and run that out to your reciever, the sound won't come through the tv unless you run a second audio out from the reciever into you tv's audio input on the same signal your picture is coming from.

I hope that helps.

Loss of sound on the Denon AVR 2807 a/v surround receiver when I turn on and off lights in my house


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.
