Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders
We are trying to connect a Sony Bravia LCD 3D/HD TV with sky+ through the Denon AVR 3806 with HDMI cable and it is not working. Can you please tell me if there is a fix for this or do we need to get a new AMP. Thanks

Unless you are having res. issues you can use component / optical / coaxial cables to connect all your devices to your denon and from your denon to your tv using component cables also

After days of frustration the real problem was with the cable box. It needed a firmware update. Following forum advice I disconnected the cable box power cord for a few minutes, reconnected it, allowed the cable box to reinitialize. Turned off receiver and TV. Turned TV back on and set it to HDMI connection, turned on receiver and all worked fine. Great picture and sound.( Needed to buy an optical cable to go from the cable box to the receiver to get sound from the speaker system. )--the dirtybird

In short, HDMI will not work. HDMI is riddled with issues, your's is just one of many! HDMI version 1.1,1.2,1.2a,&1.2b do not work 100% on any receiver. The current version is 1.3b and "so far" it works... Now the bad news; It's not just a software patch to fix the problem, it's a hardware issue as well. If your unit is still under warranty, the manufacturer will update hardware and software for you at N/C. If it's out of warranty, it's way too expensive to have done! The fix is to run your HDMI directly to your TV from source, ie. Cable,DVD, etc. then run coaxial digital or optical to your receiver for audio. The catch.. How many HDMI inputs your TV has will limit sources hooked up via HDMI. If you want further info on HDMI issues, just google "HDMI forums" and there are many different sites to answer the problems of HDMI. Hope this helps.

Long and painful answer!!! However, in the end, you need to bypass HDMI thru your receiver and go direct to the TV. Connect Digital Coaxial or Optical for audio to your receiver. Your version of HDMI in your receiver is not compatable with today's HDMI version. Yours is 1.1a and the current version is 1.3b going to 1.4. If you want detailed info as to "why", just google "HDMI 1.1 problems" you can read for hours! Sorry for the bad news! However, it is what it is. Hope this helps. If you need further help with setup, post a comment and I can give you further help.

I had the same issue with my Denon AVR-1908.....It turned out to be the cable box, not the receiver. I would suggest you unplug your cable box, remove and reseat the cable card,HDMI cables, and finally the cable line itself. Make sure the wires are not frayed or otherwise pinched.
