Question about Denon AVR-988 7.1-Channel Multizone Home Theater Receiver

1 Answer

No sound from Denon AVR 988

We recently added a new TV. I labeled all the cables when we moved everything, so I am confident that all the wiring is as it should be. We did have TV sound coming through the Denon, and then we pushed some button and now can't get sound to come through Denon. We had not been able to get FM radio to play at all. Any suggestions about where to start? Thanks

    We called Customer Support at 855 MY DENON. A very nice fellow asked us if we had the FM antenna attached. I thought we did . . . but we didn't. After I found the antenna and attached it, we were able to get sound from the Tuner. We still can't get sound from the TV, but that's a project for another day.

    We now have 2 channel sound from the tuner, from the TV (through the tuner) and from the BluRay player and the Pioneer DVD player, through the TV. Can't figure out how to get the surround sound speakers to work. Hope to call the Denon folks in the morning. Baby steps.

Make sure the TV audio setting is set to send sound through to the Denon not just out of the TV speakers, you wont be able to do both

SOURCE: Denon avr-1909 crackling sound while watching Uverse HD.

It may may the the AT+T box is really not compatible with the AVR or the Pioneer.

Check the specs on those input/outputs for the Ubox and the receiver.
See if they agree. If so, try another hookup method like HDMI ( which carries the audio too)

TV's are not your best source of audio. Get the TV-related audio digitally from the source, NOT the TV.

SOURCE: Hello! I have a Denon AVR3300 receiver with ATT Uverse signal coming through my Phillips Plasma tv HDMI1 jack. I recently added Apple TV via HDMI2 jack with sound via the Denon's Optical jack 2.

I would recommend using only HDMI. That's what the cable was made for!

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!
