Question about Denon AVR-5803 Receiver

2 Answers

Denon 5803 Onscreen Display will not display on the monitor.

I can play DVD s and TV movies using the 5803. But when I want to make adjustments ...the display will not reach my monitor. It's been a while but I don't remember having this problem before. The Denon manual is very poor and is very vague. I am using the component hook between the AVR and the Monitor.
Any suggestions appreciated.

Yes, you have to have a composite cable from monitor out on the Denon to a composite input on the tv to get on screen

Cant bring up the onscreen menu on my tv


Greetings ! Hopefully you followed the instructions on page 18 - 20 of the Yamaha manual... then set the Flat screen or monitor to one of the two inputs that you view movies or dvd's on . I would try it first without HDMI cables as even the book states some monitors do not accept or see hdmi. try it with the dvd cables.
You have to follow the book carefully as I have the same system . Its a complicated system and I was informed , "a lot of people do not know how to set the system up and end up returning a perfect system..." from the Geek squad from Best Buy. Just follow carefully the manual.

Trying to use my hp laptop with sony lcd hdmi tv for movies


You should have an S video port on both tv and computer.

If your tv don't have s video input,you can get an S video to RCA cord.
If the tv does have s video input,just get an s video cable and plug it into the tv and computer's S video ports and follow the steps below for setup.


1. Connect the "S-Video to RCA" cable or the "Pro S-Video to 3 RCA" cable to the "S-video out" of the computer and to the "video in" (yellow RCA jack) on the TV. NOTE: This step must be performed before you start up the computer. Make sure that your TV is set to "recognize" the RCA/yellow video-in jack; you may have to play with the "aux 1", "aux 2", or "line-in" selections on the TV or the TV's remote control. The S-Video jack on your computer may be a 4-pin or 7-pin jack that is usually on the back of the computer.

Windows XP:

- Click on Start, Control Panel.

- Click on Display

- Click on Settings

- Slide the "Screen resolution" area slider bar toward Less until the setting reads 800 x 600. OK, you may not like how your screen looks at this setting after usig high-res settings, but you'll certainly enjoy your DVD on your TV!!! You can always change the res back when not playing DVDs.

- Click Apply

- Press the FN key and your computer's corresponding "F-number" key. For instance, on some Toshiba laptops you press the FN+F5 or FN+F7 simultaneously four times to get the TV-Out setting. The "FN" key is a short-cut key on most laptop keyboards. Note, the combination keys that you may have to press depend on your laptop.

- Start playing your movie or presentation.

- There may be additional adjustments that may be required. If the TV display is shifted to the right with a black vertical bar on the left side you will have to perform additional settings. "The computer runs Windows XP Pro and has a "Radeon IGP 345M", Under 'Display Properties', 'Settings', 'Advanced', 'Displays', click the "TV" button, then 'Adjustments' tab. There you will find options to change the vertical/horizontal size and position. Once you have switched over to use the tv you can simply adjust these settings while you watch the display on the television to get it looking the way you like."

Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows Me, or Microsoft Windows 2000:

NOTE: To use the TV as the primary display with the dual display function, you need to enable the TV setting every time you start your computer.

2. Click Start, point to Settings, select Control Panel, and choose Display.

2.1 Under the Display Properties window, ensure that the color depth is set to High Color (16bit)

2.2 Click Advanced Properties under the Settings tab; this brings up the ATI or SAVAGE video card features.

2.3 Click on the Display tab; this gives you the output options.

2.4. If you have an ATI video card the "Displays" tab gives you the output options. If the TV is detected, it shows the power button on. The button next to that gives you adjustments for the picture, kind of like those to center the view on your monitor. On the bottom are some blue buttons.

2.5 Make the TV the primary display and the monitor secondary. The default settings on the rest of the adjustments may not need to be changed.

To make the TV the primary display you have to select "monitor 2" (you do that by selecting monitor 2 with the mouse" and then "moving it" to the left of "monitor 1". By switching the position of the monitors in your display settings you effectively make the monitor on the left the primary monitor.

Videos and mpegs play on an "overlay" method and can only play on one monitor at the same time, thus, you have to decide which monitor you want the video overlay to play in...and since the idea is to watch the video on your TV, you thus have to make the TV the primary monitor.

2.6 If you have the SAVAGE graphics card you need to do the following on the display tab - go to the settings tab. There's a drop down menu with 2 monitors, select the first one. Click on the advanced button. There's a tab titled "s3 duo vue". Choose that tab, and click on the tv option. If you do not follow these steps you'll get a message from the savage image card control stating "You must activate the tv first." NOTE: To use the TV as the primary display with the dual display function, you need to enable the settings every time you start your computer.

3. Click OK to close window.

3.1 Click OK to apply the changes

NOTE: The S-Video to RCA Adapter must be attached to the unit or the TV option will be grayed out.

4. When the DVD player was showing the movie, the TV will display it, but the monitor window will be black unless you have dual display capability on your computer.

5. Your TV may just happen to be able to support the 1024 x 768 pixel resolution that the computer may be set to, however, if you lower the resolution to 800 x 600 the movie will probably play much smoother without any noticeable drop in picture quality.

6. Video Formats. You need to make sure that the video format selected on your computer is the same as the video format required for your television. There are some computers that are sold in the USA with PAL-B as the default video format; you need to change it to NTSC-M for TVs in North and South America. There are basically three television video formats, NTSC, PAL and SECAM. NTSC is used in Canada, Japan (NTSC-J), USA, Mexico, Central and South America. PAL is used in most European Countries, Australia and New Zealand. SECAM is primarily used in France and the old soviet republics.


Remember that your monitor's VGA resolution and TV resolution is measured differently since they are different standards and were meant to be seen at different distances. If "pixel resolution" was used to measure TV (NTSC) video then the approximate resolution of a regular TV would be 448x480. Your TV does not need to have higher resolution since it was not meant to be seen as close as your monitor. Regular TV was meant to be seen from a viewing ratio (viewing distance to picture height) of 4-to-1. An HDTV usually has a larger screen size and thus requires higher resolution, since the viewing ratio is about 3:1. You may have to re-arrange your TV viewing distance if you get an HDTV - since it's not going to look good if you just plop it in the same spot as your analog TV; you have to adjust the viewing distance.

Cant get rid of black baras on top and below while watching DVD's


The TV remote may have a button stating Aspect Ratio, or similar. Usually when you keep hitting it, it may cycle through available settings like 16:9, 4:3, Wide, Zoom, etc. If not, or if the remote doesn't have this button, check the TV's onscreen display but usually the source device like the DVD player is in control of how the image fits the screen so the DVD player's onscreen display or it's remote may also have the Aspect option so check it as well. Todays TV's are alot like PC monitors and they "talk" to the device in control of the signal. Your Samsung may have worked better with the Blu Ray, or maybe it's the other way around but your new LG may not have an automatic adjustment like the Samsung may have had.

Unable to view setup menu on TV screen


I had this same experience and after hours of attepts to fix it (including the suggestions on this site) I found that the company that installed and set up my system literally disabled the "set up" on the remote so that it could not be changed. To fix this (and/or confirm that this may be your problem) reference page 39, "all reset functions" to reset your remote back to factory settings. As soon as I did this and hit "set-up" -- the set up menu popped up and worked appropriately. Hope this works for you!

Denon AVR 5803A upsampled digital inputs I had 2 questions you might be able to help me with. Both relate to my Denon 5803A signal processing. I have just purchased a Cambridge Audio Azur 840C CD player with both digital and analog outputs. The CD player upsamples standard 44.1 khz to 48, 96, 192 for digital output (and 384 for conversion in the CD player for analog output). The Denon is listed as having DAC's that operate at 192, yet when I upsample the CD digital output to 192, the denon switches to 'analog' from digital, and plays nothing through the digital coax input. If I take it down to 96khz, it plays (and lists as 96 PCM on the front panel when in 'auto' mode). So first question is how do I take a 192 khz digital signal into the Denon. I had thought the "A" designation/upgrade allowed for this. 2nd question - if I take the analog out from the CD player to the analog in on the Denon, does the Denon convert back to digital in order to 1) split the signal to the sub vs. the mains at 80 hz (or is/can this be done in the analog realm), and 2) play in 7.1 channel stereo (I know some signal processing happens for center channel, but I don't use this channel...so technically 6.1 channel). Net, does the left and right channels for front, side, and back have any signal processing in the digital realm on 7.1 channel setting. I ask because the CD player actually upsamples to 384 khz before converting to analog for a very good signal. yet I like a crossovered signal for sub, and enjoy 6.1 music at times. Thanks for any help you can offer.
