Won't Show DVD Picture or Hear From Surround Sound Speakers
I followed the instructions in setting up the receiver and speakers, It works great for my cable box and tv however when I use the DVD player there is sound but no picture. I originally had it connected throught the red, white, and yellow cables and then switched to HDMI input. Both had sound, no picture. I am wondering if it has something to do that I have cable plugged into component, do you have to have all inputs in the same inputs?
Secondly, the speakers work during the test phase, but I can't figure out how to get them all to play. I have pressed the a/b button and changed from straight to entertainment and it still only shows the LR on the screen not all 5 speakers. Any suggestions?

Re: Won't Show DVD Picture or Hear From Surround Sound...
The lack of video in the DVD can be isolated to the DVD players output mode, if you are using the component video out on the dvd player then be sure to follow the componet out of Receiver to the tv component inputs, if you are using the HDMI from a DVD HDMI into RECEIVER HDMI then go to TV HDMI, you cannot mix component and HDMI on this model of AVR receiver and acheive results, in other words keep the COMPONENT to Component and HDMI to HDMI signal path, the results will be similiar quality audio and video UNLESS you are doing a blu-ray source which will result 1080P quality, all other video, HD results to 1080i, about the audio, if all 5.1 test tones are satifactory to speakers but on playback modes for DVD or HD tv signals all you are receiving is LR which is basically 2 channel (stereo) you need to enable a MULTI-CHANNEL capability input, this must be a option on the DVD Player Audio MENU output, be sure it is set for DOLBY DIGITAl 5.1 or DTS outputs, be sure to have the receivers digital input enabled if you are running optical cable or coaxial digital for the audio, you will be sending a multi-channel input to the receiver when the Receivers Faceplace LCD displays 5-6 speakers. If it shows only LR or two speakers it is not locking into a 5.1 audio input.

If everything is connected correct, the only thing I can think of, is you don't put in a surround signal. If you only feed 2 way stereo, only two speaker will work. Also if you switch to stereo, the other channels will stop working. Check the cables, the settings and the input.
Make sure that the volume is not muted or too low on the TV...the TV volume output to your receiver will be performing the function of a pre-amp to your receiver. Then select the appropriate input on the receiver that you have the TV audio connected to.
It all depends on the processing the receiver is doing when recreating the sound. Change the surround mode to Dolby Digital or THX if it's on there. When it is receiving a Left/Right signal only, it does some processing but pretty much spits it out of all the speakers, fronts being the loudest. That's why you always hear them. When it is getting a Digital signal, the receiver does a much better job of processing the audio to the correct speaker, but unless there is a lot of background noise, there might not be any signal going to the speaker.
Also, check to make sure that the "size" of the speaker on the rear channels is set correctly. There is a setting on most receivers to tell the receiver how big the speaker is on that channel. This sets the power level on the output to accomodate the size of the speaker.
THE BEST SOUND IS WHAT SOUNDS BEST TO YOU, HOWEVER DO THIS:
1, USING THE SETUP MIC CONFIGURE YOUR DENON, PAGE 8 OF THE MANUAL. NEXT
2. RAISE THE REAR SPKR LEVELS, PAGE 46,47. NEXT
3. WHEN LISTENING TO AUDIO CD OR RADIO TRY THE 5 CH STEREO DSP MODE.
4. WHEN WATCHING A DVD USE DSP DOLBY PROLOGIC OR TRY 5CH STEREO IF THE MOVIE IS MOSTLY TALKING.
5, TRY 5CH STEREO WHEN WATCHING PROGRAMS WITH MOSTLY TALKING
unit needs repair. Look at the b speakers. Conect a speaker or two to the B position. If you have no sound than your surrond sound is ok and the unit is bad. Sound comes directly into the b speaker and not threw the surrond system. My 6070 has a cold start up problem. no sound. time to purchase a new one. to costly to repair.
It sounds like you don't have your surround sound source set up properly (your DVD player is not set up for PCM sound).
the best quality audio will be to set up either digital or optical audio between the DVD and the receiver.
Once you have connected the optical or digital audio cable between the DVD and receiver, you have to go into the DVD player audio setup and change it to PCM digital audio or you will not get surround sound. DVD players are not set up by default to output surround sound.
Nice Receiver! >In your surround sound settings make sure the levels are set correctly and the distance from your listing point to the furtherest speakers are set to accommodate the levels etc. >How many speakers 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 (1meaning subwoofer) >Pro-Logic supports 5.1 but not sure about 6 or 7 >Pro-Logic II does support all >Make sure you are hear the sound from all sometimes the sound is really faint if you are in surround mode
