Question about Denon AVR-3802 Receiver

1 Answer

Audio getting cut during peaks ..

Mine is an AVR 3802 and connected to it is a long co axial cable that runs from my bluray player. The bluray player sits adjacent to the projector but the receiver is about 15ft away. Hence the long cable. The problem I face is the audio ( on auto scan mode) getting cut during certain peaks (only)and the amp searches again for the signal that subsequently returns in about 20 secs. This happens atleast a couple of times during a full movie run. Thanks.

You are driving the receiver too hard on the peaks so it is temporarily shutting down for protection.

Denon 3802 connected to blu ray player but playi g dvds, how do i get dd 5.1?


You cannot get 5.1 sound from DVDs that are not encoded with 5.1 sound. They may be stereo, which will only send sound to the main front L/R speakers.

Everytime I use the DTS functions to enable my surround sound, no sound goes to my speakers. I am able to use it only for the standard output with the left and right front speakers. What could be causing...


DTS should be enabled only if your source has a DTS digital audio out connected to the receiver.Mostly only DVD / Bluray players have DTS sound and is outputted through an optical or co-axial port on the back of the player. Its a multichannel digital encryption technology where the signal is sent through one cable and your receiver decodes it into 5.1 or 7.1 channels according to the source.

I'd like to connect my new BluRay disc player to the AVR 235 using an HDMI cable for best quality. There is no HDMI "in". Is there a converter available?


the support site for that product is here http://www.harmankardon.com/EN-US/Products/Pages/ProductDetails.aspx?PID=AVR%20235&accT=0&tsT=1&ovT=1
I have looked at the rearpanel PDF link http://www.harmankardon.com/resources/Brands/harmankardon/Products/ProductRelatedDocuments/en-US/QuickStartGuide/AVR235rearpanel.pdf and it appears to me to be all Analogue inputs - S-video, composite and component - information about each of those type of connections are available here http://www.ramelectronics.net/howto-av.ep and component maybe the best type as it can handle HD and would be the best quality of the analogue signals .. BUT whats your make and model of the bluray player - does it have any analogue outputs, at all - otherwise you will need to convert the HDMI digitla signal to the analogue signal, which may be very expensive - as an example - I have NEVER USED THIS http://hdfury2.co.uk/hdfury2-p-9.html also something like this maybe cheaper http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/hdmi-to-component-video-converter.html BUT again NEVER used before

Connecting Sony BDP S550 Blu-ray player to my Denon 3802 receiver.


The only thing you need is an optical audio cable (toslink) connecting the Blu-ray blayer with one of the three inputs on the AVR3802. Then assign this input in the system menu to the input you like (e. g. DVD) and that should be it. The Receiver automatically detects the sound format from the Blu-ray and changes from stereo to DTS, DD5.1, 7.1 or whatever.

Denon AVR-3802 Problem


Check that your speaker cables are not touching each other at the amp end and also at the speakers as this will cause the amp to shut down.

hope this helps.

Set up


You don't need to fake it with a VCR - on the back left side near the bottom there is a Monitor section with an RCA connection and an S-Video connection. Connect one of these to an input connection on your tv and switch your tv to show that input. Select the AMP setting of your remote and press Setup.

Too many Cables??


Firstly, let me address audio cables. Optical audio is the same (essentially) as a coaxial digital audio cable, just in a different form. Since you just purchased a Bluray player, you'll see an HDMI out on the rear. This is a high definition video and audio cable rolled into one (however it looks like your receiver does not support this). I would recommend running an HDMI cable from the Bluray player right to the TV, then run an optical audio cable (or coaxial digital) from the TV to the receiver. This will give you the best picture on your TV, and the best available sound through your receiver.

Depending on your DVD player and Bluray player, you might want to consider using just the Bluray player for DVD's and Bluray discs. If your plasma supports 1080p (or really anything better than 480i), you would most likely get a better picture out of DVD's since the Bluray player will upconvert the video to the better signal (of course this depends on your exact model of Bluray player). This will help to eliminate some cabling also.

Other than that, you're not going to eliminate much more cabling. If you really want to get tricky with it, pick up some split loom wire management and wrap them up with that. Be sure to run the power and signal wires separately though! Best of luck, and hope this has helped.
