Question about Denon Audio & Video Receivers
Trying to use optical audio from pioneer dvd player dv363 Cannot get the optical audio to work. its driving me crazy
the avr-588 apparently cannot carry sound via hdmi - don't know why; just what i found out from the geek squad at best buy; solved the problem by connecting optical cable from cable box to receiver; be sure to change the input on the receiver for opt-2 (system setup >2 inputs) to correlate with tv

This reciever does not decode the audio through HDMI, the HDMI ports are simply a pass-through. To get audio you need to connect an optical audio cable from the PS3 to the reciever also. I figured this out after 2 hours of trying to get audio from the HDMI cable. Here is a link that shows the different audio formats supported through HDMI by the different Denon models. It looks like the AVR-788 is the lowest model that supports audio through HDMI. Hope that helps.

The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.
Connect and Enjoy

SOURCE: Denon AVR-588 Sound Delay
FIRST, IF YOUR USING HDMI CONNECTIONS IN THE DENON HDMI SETUP YOU HAVE TO TURN THE AUDIO DELAY ADJ. ON
SECOND, THE DELAY TIME ADJ, FOR OTHER SOURCES IS LOCATED ON PG 27 IN THE MANUAL, HERE IS THE LINK TO DENON SITE WITH MANUAL
