I can't seem to get the tuner to work on my Denon AVR 2803 receiver.

It can't hurt.

You will lose all your settings though. So you'll have to set the amp up again from scratch.

Before you do initialise, let's just check.... You plugged in a FM or AM aerial, right?

After a power outage my denon 2803 receiver will not turn on.

Hello. First unplug and replug in your receivers. When you push the power button, you should hear 1 click. Within 5 seconds, you should hear a second click. Can you please tell me the results?

Thank you.

I can't get a menu screen up on my Denon AVR 2803.

Did someone turn the OSD off on the menu? You might try a reset of the receiver. This would be in your manual.

I've got a Denon AVR 2803 surround sound system. I recently purchased and Xbox 360 and haven't had any success with installing it. Last night I removed my DVD player from my TV and installed the Xbox and...

Hi, and yes there is hope, there's a saying that when something is tedious and or boring to read "it reads like stereo instructions ".The first thing to make sure of is you have a rather stiff connecting cable called a "TOSLINK" cable this has squarish ends and plugs into the "DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT" of the x-box 360 and then plug the other end into whichever input your using for the x-box. A dead giveaway to the jack to use on x-box is that it may actually be lit up red while playing. it also may be labeled "PCM/LPCM" versus digital audio. Anyway that should get you your surround sound on your stereo. Thanks for choosing FixYa, Let us know if there's anything else we can help with,and good luck, Prodzilla

Hi, just connected a Blu Ray player to my sytem. I connected the player via HDMI direct to the TV and the audio output direct into Optical 2 on the Denon. Problem is that there is no sound. Also...

We can't make assumptions about proper and complete setup if you don't explicitly mention the steps involved, so... did you assign and select the digital inputs properly?

Page 23 etc

BTW: I concur with your decision to send the video directly to the TV from the BD even though Denon and others expect it to make a hop through the receiver first.

Get into your BD and find its audio out setup. Make sure its settings for digital audio output bit rates, speaker presence, type, size, distance and bass-handling are set correctly.

No picture

the reason you can't get a signal is the denon 1708 will not pass the 1080p, switch the DVD output res. to 1080i or 720p and it will work

Video performance question

The 2801 (I used to have a 2803) is just an AV receiver, so it doesn't do any video processing.

If you get a DVD player with HDMI or DVI output, you'll be better off doing what you said - bypass the receiver for video and connecting the video directly to your TV, and the audio to your receiver.

It makes things less convenient since you can't switch inputs only with the receiver's remote, but you'll get a much better picture.

If you really need to control the whole system with a single remote, consider getting a Logitech Harmony remote or something similar. They're very convenient.

Denon 1905/785 - lost color feeding tv

Your Denon 1905 might be setting it under HDMI for video source.You need to correct it by going to menu,as you browse through the setting,you should able to find video select or video output. It is on the manual.
Remember,you need to run a composite video cable from the video output behind your receiver to your TV video input for this step.
