SOURCE: I have a harmon kardon

Check that the player's Dolby / DTS is enabled. Sometimes it is defaulted in the player to 2.0 / Stereo PCM. What model Samsung? Those Harman receivers are old favorites of mine...

We would have the dvd player optical go to the receiver, and the DVD HDMI to the TV.

SOURCE: I connected the optical outputs

Cable boxes generally do not have the optical out turned on by default, especially if they are HDMI compatible. You need to go to your settings menu on the cable box and into the audio settings and probably choose Dolby Digital Out. I say probably because you didn't provide any information regarding your brand of cable box so I can only tell you how it is on mine (might say digital optical, I don't know). By the way, if you're using an HD Cable Box with HDMI out directly into your TV (which if you have Blu-Ray player as well, it only makes sense that you have an HDTV with HDMI and the same for cable) I have no doubt that your cable box has automatically switched the audio output to HDMI.
I've gone through your manual and I see nothing to indicate that it can't use both digital optical inputs on the unit but there is a very lengthy section on setting up inputs using the On-Screen Dispay that you might want to consider going through. It also indicates that you could have issues if your box doesn't switches between analog and digital. I find that VERY unlikely.

If all else fails, your system does accept coaxial didgital in as well. There is zero difference in audio quality between digital coax and fiber optic and they are very cheap.

This being said. I think based on the information you provided, the issue is in the settings of your cable box.

Connect wii to Avr 1312 Denon


What you would have to do is connect the video output of the wii directly to the video input of the bug projector. Also connect the audio cables to it as well. Then connect an audio cable to the projector's audio out or otherwise labeled as "variable out" then connect the other end of that to the matching input terminal, found often labeled as "audio in" on the receiver's grouping of input selections for TV.
Then, on the projector, select the video mode you connected the wii cables to.

How can i connect Nintendo wii to avr-590. Have


To connect a Nintendo Wii to an AVR-590, I am assuming this is a Denon Receiver, you will need to connect the Nintendo Wii to the TV, then connect audio out from the TV to the AVR-590 Receiver, and select the receiver to be in Pro Logic. Depending on the TV, if you have fiberoptic output on the TV, you would hook a fiberoptic out from the TV to the AV Receiver, but you will still not get true Dolby Digital, just Dolby Pro Logic. This will be the most effective way to solve the problem. Hope This Helps

Connected denon avr 1800 reciever to new hd tv. i cant find my reciever manual. how do i set the reciever to play the tv sound?


If you connect your tv's audio output to the reciever's audio input in the (TVor video section) using audio cables only---red & black or red & white) then select TV or Video on the front of the reciever depending on which connection on the back that you use it should work fine!!

No audio output


Were you playing it very loudly when it died?

The manual is here for reference...

http://www.docs.sony.com/reflib/docget.asp?manualid=11654&template_id=1&region_id=1&DL=',600,560,10,10,'Manuals'

It discusses troubleshooting this problem on page 50.

When you turn the receiver ON does you hear a light click in about 5 seconds? That would be the protection circuitry turning OFF to allow the amplifiers to function. The delay is to allow the circuitry to stabilize before it sends any output to the speakers. If you don't hear a click the unit is Protecting the speakers due to malfunction somewhere.

If no click and no apparent messages try turning the speakers OFF using the Speakers button directly below the Power button (1/0). This will eliminate or point to external shorts as the cause.


Does the unit click after 5 seconds of Power ON with the speakers OFF? Isolate your shorted speaker or wire problem.


Still no sound at the speakers when you turn them ON?

We need to establish if there is any programming flowing through the receiver.

A quick basic check would be to tune an FM station, if you have a tape deck attached, place it in Record or Record/Pause mode so it can display the input signal levels. You should see the record meters fluctuating with the level of the program selected. If you don’t have a tape deck, run an RCA cable pair from the audio output for a tape deck to an analog audio input on your TV. Select that input on the TV and you should hear the FM station, or anything the receiver is configured to play. If it's silent then there is no audio signal circulating in the receiver to get out to the amplifiers.

If you hear the program on the TV but not through any attached speakers, then the amplifiers are all disabled for some reason.

If there is no audio flowing through the receiver the problem could be a switch in the wrong position, source not selected, muting on or a multitude of other things.

Let me know how this turns out.

No audio on any channel, even in audio setup mode, no audio headp


If you have any of its sound outputs connected to a TV or tape deck do they get the signal? If so, then we know there is sound processing somewhere inside the unit but not emerging to anyplace that requires amplification.

A quick basic check would be to tune an FM station, run an RCA cable pair from the audio output for a tape deck (see the picture at the link) to an analog audio input on your TV. Select that input on the TV and you shouls hear the FM station, or anything the receiver is configured to play. If it's silent then there is no audio signal circulating in the receiver to get out to the amplifiers.

http://www.onkyousa.com/images/hookup/TX-SR803/detail_tapedeck.jpg

Check to make sure Multi-Channel input is not selected unless that is what you're listening to as it bypasses all other sources analog and digital EXCEPT the tape; and check any Mute or Zone Controls, too.

If you hear the program on the TV but not through any attached speakers, then the amplifiers are all disabled for some reason. The click I asked about before... when you turn it on does it get a click about 5 seconds later. That would be the protection circuitry turning OFF to allow the amplifiers to function.

I notice it has a Tape function. Make sure it isn't selected as it assumes a tape deck or processor is attached and will only play back what would be coming FROM the tape deck or processor. On my Pioneer receiver it also disables any digital signal processing.

Sometimes when I'm watching TV with the remote on the seat someone moves and something bad happens. It's always some unfamiliar button that gets touched unintentionally. Look over the remote for things like MUTE, Multi-CH, Tape.

Denon AVR-488 , problems routing cable box through receiver to tv


If you don't have one, the manual is available online: http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/AVR-488-OM-E_101.pdf

Suggestions:

1. Reset to default values. Per page 36 of manual: 1. Turn off Power. 2. Press Power while simultaneously pressing Speaker A and Speaker B. 3. Once the display starts flashing at intervals of about 1 second, release the two buttons.

2. Make sure you have AM or FM radio reception. This makes sure your speakers, amps, etc are connected and working correctly.

3. Connect DVD player to HDMI 1 in and TV to HDMI Monitor Out.
Play a known good DVD that works when you connected the DVD directly to the TV via HDMI.

Select the DVD/HDP input on the receiver and play the DVD. You should not have to perform any input assignments, etc. It should just work, as HDMI1 is the default system setting for DVD.

4. If possible, obtain a STB with HDMI out & repeat step 3 using the HDMI2 TV/CBL input. Keeping the signal path all digital (HDMI) will give you a better picture quality than forcing several analog to digital conversions (component video is analog).

4A. To use the component connection, first test by connecting the STB directly to the TV via component video/audio if possible. This tests that the component video output of the STB is working correctly.

Next, remove direct connection and connect via receiver. Connect STB to receiver as shown on page 13 in manual. Connect component video output from STB to component video input #2 (tv/cbl) on receiver. Connect the STB audio output to the corresponding tv/cbl audio inputs.

Make sure nothing is connected to the HDMI2 input or to any other TV/CBL inputs (composite video, s-video, digital coax audio).

Now select the TV/CBL input and turn on the STB. You should have both audio & video.

We have a Denon AVR Surround Sound receiver, a Samsung HDTV, an XBox 360, an ASD-3W Denon Ipod Dock and Klipswitch speakers with a subwoofer, center channel and too bookshelf speakers. We need help...


HDMI input connect as follows:

1. Connect an HDMI cable from the Cable box to the TV/CBL HDMI input on the Denon.
2. Connect an HDMI cable from the Xbox to the DVD/HDP input on the Denon.
3. Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI out-put on the Denon to an input on the Samsung.
You don’t have to use the optical output from these to devices since the HDMI cable allows for the transfer of both audio and video, if you have them extra use them in addition to the HDMI cable and last,

4. On front of denon after you setup and assign your optical connections, if you use them, once you select TV/CBL or DVD/HDP as a source, press the input mode button to select auto

No sound


You need to have an input audio source on your receiver such as a DVD player or ipod. The radio is an internal source that is why yo uare hearing sound from it. One thing you could do is run a cable from the audio out jacks on your television to an input on the receiver, and then when you are watching TV select the input you put the cables in to hear the television sound through your receiver speakers.
