Hello, I have a 32 inch samsung ln32a330 lcd tv. Two sources, AV and HDMI1, are failing to show up on my list of options. I used both of them for the first 6 months I had the tv. Then, the AV option cut out. Now, the HDMI1 option is gone! So, I only have HDMI2 left to watch tv. Any hints on how to fix this problem? Thanks.

The receiver manual may list it under "CC" (closed captions) instead of subtitles. Also, don't just check your AV receiver; try checking the setup menu on your TV, and look at the TV remote. See if there's a CC setting that may be turned on, either through the TV setup (probably under the "Display" or "Video" tab) or because you've accidentally pushed the CC (or Subtitles) button on the TV remote.
You should check your Denon manual to be sure that the receiver has been set up correctly. My 1913 has many set up options including associating a particular HDMI out connection with a particular source like CBL/SAT or DVD. The fact that you hear sound indicates the HDMI cable connecting the cable box or DVD player to the receiver is working ( at least the sound portion of the HDMI in cable.)
Next, is the HDMI connection you are using to the TV the one selected in the source listing on the TV ? The sound and video circuitry on a receiver are separated and you can hear sound but see no video if the TV isn't selecting the correct source. For example if the TV is set to HDMI1 but you are plugged into HDMI 2. If this doesn't solve your problem try this:
At this point you don't know if the problem is the receiver HDMI connections or TV HDMI connections or a bad HDMI cable. The first thing to try is a new HDMI Cable. If that doesn't solve the problem then do the following.
If the TV has more than one HDMI connection try another HDMI port. Be sure to switch the source on the TV to the new HDMI port ie. HDMI1,HDMI2 or whatever.
If this fixes the problem you are done. If not then Try the same thing with the HDMI out ports on the receiver. Try each one not forgetting to set the receiver to use the HDMI port you are testing.
Since this can get confusing I would write down what you are testing each time so you don't get lost or confused.
If none of this works then you can try hooking up another TV to the HDMI cable, if you have one. If you do this and you still have a problem it points to the receiver as being the culprit.
The most likely problem is you have misconfigured the system so that is where I started. Each test is dependent on the fact that your system is correctly configured to begin with.
I understand, it's something I've misunderstood on my denon avr-790 as well when connected to a samsung 8000 series led tv. The answer isn't in the receiver's settings (you can be on whatever source you want on the receiver end when toggling the menu). You need to toggle through the tv's sources to find the menu (usually found on hdmi 1). I've spent towards an hour recently troubleshooting only to find that it was the tv's source that wasn't set properly and I was trying to change the receiver's settings instead of the tv's source. Hope that helps!
the back of the system, you will find Video out, then Audio out
(left and right). Connect the yellow cord to video out, and the white
& red to Audio out appropriately.
Then connect the other end
of the yellow cord to "Video in" at the back of the TV, then the red and
white to audio in at the back of the TV.
After connecting as
directed above, turn on the TV, then turn on the system. On the TV
remote control, press "AV" or "Source" depending on what is written on
the remote and there should be a display. If there is no display, press
the "AV" or "Source" on the remote once or twice more and there should
be a display of the receiver's welcome screen on the TV. You might also need to press "Source" on the system's remote if there no display.
know if you don't av display even after following the above steps. The
above is the correct way of connecting so it should work.
The White and Red cords stands for Audio left and right, while the
yellow cord stands for Video. The yellow is suppose to allow your system
display on the TV screen, while the Red and White is to bring out
It sounds like you may have wired your soure's video and audio to your tv. If your using an av receiver, than you dont need to send audio to the tv, only to the receiver. so here is what you can do.
1-Verify that you have an audio connection from your source to your a/v receiver
2-Change the receivers input using the "source" or "input" button.
Your high-fidelity equipment should get TV-related audio from the same place the TV gets it - Cable, DVD, BD or Sat. A digital feed each of them will carry TRUE Dolby Digital audio. There is little sense in diluting TV-related audio through a TV and it's marginal audio electronics that are usually limited to analog stereo.
I have a model LN32A330 which is probably has connections similar to yours. I'm not home right now to check whether it has a digital output, but I know for sure it has an analog audio output available. You can run that output to an available auxiliary or a/v source input on the receiver and that will work for you. That's how I have mine connected. If the set has a digital output and the receiver offers digital inputs, that's another connection possibility. The digital output on some brands of TV only works in conjunction with the tuner, and may not always have output. The analog method is guaranteed to work.
