Denon AVR-4800 Optical Input problem

Hi,
I have a Denon AVR-4800 to which I have connected a pair of Sony ES series CD decks. I'm using the optical connections and have the AVR-4800 inputs set to "Optical1" and "Optical2". The CD decks play fine but I can't figure out why there is no output at the analog Tape1 and Tape2/Mon outputs. In order to record from either CD deck I have to connect the RCA cables between the 4800 and the CD decks. I assumed that I would be able to record from a CD using the optical inputs since the optical/digital sigal is converted to anaolg at some point. Does the 4800 not provide an analog output from optical input sources? Or have I missed something in the setup?
Thanks,
Jeff

It's going into protect. Unhook ALL the speakers and see if it still shuts itself off. If so, then it will have to be taken in for service.

SOURCE: denon 3801.cant display setup on tv

Hello gerrydav, What might be happenening is the refresh rate for your blu-ray is offsync for your preferred display. You should be able to change it by plugging it into another TV and playing around with the settings. If you have further problems please feel free to post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

SOURCE: no sound fom optical input

Do you have your TV hooked up, so you can see the AVR-4800 system menu on its screen (if not, see the manual). You need to go down to the digital input menu item where you associate each component with its input source, whether it is coax, optical 1, optical 2, ..., etc.

I cant connect my Denon avr 682 to my pc via optical??


I would change your setting on your receiver to digital. its probably on analog. look for a button that says that. You might have to change your input have a look at the rear and see if it says, DVD optical or CD and choose that input.

I have a Denon AVR 888, I want to use the reciever for my audio coming from my TV, I have plugged in a HDMI into the in port and connected it to my TV, I do not get any audio from the reciever


HI,
If you want to get the audio of tv program through the AVR then your tv should have a HDMI out port. Because you have connected the cable directly to tv. You didnt mentioned anything about your tv (make and model number). So its not possible to give you a final answer.

Check on thing isthere ia nsy RCA audio output in your tv. All tvs will have RCA audio out put. Wich you can connct to the TV /CBL in put of your AVR using a RCA cable. Then select the TV/CBL Using the SOURCE SELECTOR on the frond of the AVR.

Another Way is if there is optical out put on your tv then you can connect the optical out to the AVR's OPTICAL IN 1 or 2 Using an optical cable. Then you have to got to the input assignment menu of
the AVR and then you have to assign the optical 1 or optical 2 to wich you have made the connection. Here i have added the link to the user manual of the AVR. Check the page number 22. Which shows the menu tree. To assign the optical input for TV/CBL you have to go to the Input set-up there you will find the ASSIGN on the under CD,AUX etc menu.
This setup required if you use OPTICAL input of the AVR. Check the page number 14 for the connection diagram.

IF you are going to use RCA cable the simply connect one end of the rca to TV's AUDIO OUT and other end to the TV/CBL input of the AVR. And then select TV/CBL.

Here i have added the picture of RCA cable that you nee for making such connection between TV and AVR.

How do I set my receiver to read TV/CBL Dolby Digital. It is a AVR 789


The Dolby digital signal is outputted only through the Optical or Coaxial socket of the CBL box. you will have to get an optic fiber or coaxial cable depending which cable box you have and connect it to the digital input of the Denon receiver. The Denon's digital input are already assigned at the back. Eg: Optic input might be labeled CD so if you are connecting the CBL box to the optic input remember to select CD on the Denon to hear the cable sound, same goes with the coaxial input.

What is the best way to attach a Sony SCD CE595 CD player SACD to a Denon AVR 2105 Receiver. I thought the optical input would be best but according to a web posting, toslink does not support SACD


That is correct. Digital connections through some models of SACD players are via "firewire", otherwise it is analog output. There are no optical connections.

The shortest pair of RCA cables, or even component video cable as an alternative will work.

Which optical inputs should I use for (1) audio output from hi-def cable box (connected to HDTV with component cables) and (2) audio output from DVD (connected to 3805 with component cables?


Hi, the Optical and Coaxial inputs are assignable to whichever input you need them on. Plug the Optical cables from your DVD and HD cable box into any of the OPTICAL INPUTS (1 and 2 is fine, but write down your connections on paper)

You will then need to go into the setup of the AVR on the screen and assign the OPTICAL connections to the correct inputs (Probably TV/CAB and DVD.

Use the SYSTEM SETUP button on the factory remote, and you should see the on-screen menu appear on your TV. Go to INPUT ASSIGNMENT and choose the input for the DVD and assign OPTICAL 1 or 2...
