Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a denon receiver with my sat box and tv connected through HDMI. I just got the unit repaired by denon as a power short caused it to malfuntion. I have it back and everything is working fine except for one thing. When I had it setup before if I turned off the receiver it would keep the tv on and revert to the tv video and audio. Now when I turn off the receiver I have a no signal message on my tv and no sound. Any idea why this isn't working now? I know the connections are the same because I labled them. Also the TV only has one HDMI input. I have no optical cables either. So what's missing?

    The only other cables hooked up to the TV are for a cable tv converter box connected to the RGB port of the TV and that is it.



    The receiver is the Denon AVR 2309Cl. The TV is the Hitachi UT37X902. The reason why I chose the TV was its size but also for limited inputs for ease of installation.



    I have a full blown home theater system in my basement that installed myself without a hitch. This is in my family room.



    I never used the receiver with the TV to watch SAT. I only turned on the reciver for music and blue ray discs. So I'm stumped as to why I can't watch tv now unless I have the reciver on.

Do you have any other cables connect to the TV? Composite(the red/white/yellow)? What model is your receiver?

How to hook up a denon avr -1706 receiver To a lg smart tv


If you are tuning in TV stations with the TV set, you will need either an optical or a coaxial audio cable to go from the digital audio out of the TV to a digital audio in on the receiver. This setup should give you 5.1 Dolby digital sound. You can also use a pair of red and white rca cables, but you will only have 2 channel sound. You may need to set the TV to output the audio to external speakers. You will need to set the receiver to the input the TV audio is connected to.

If you want to watch Sat or Cable, you probably need a couple of HDMI cables. One HDMI cable will go from the output of the Sat/Cable box to the appropriate HDMI input on the receiver. The second HDMI cable will go from the Monitor Out on the receiver to an HDMI Input on the TV. You may need to set the receiver to output HDMI audio from the receiver, and not the TV. You will need to set the TV to the HDMI Input you connected to on the TV. You will also need to set the receiver to the input the Sat/Cable box is connected to.

Details of both of these setups should be covered in the receiver and the TV manuals. Refer to them for the detailed connections and settings you need to make.

Good Luck!

I have directv hd service, I recently bought a surround system, can you help me with the connection? My sat. reciever has an hdmi out as do my surround receiver and my tv


It is always helpful if you give model and make of the equipment involved. We can be more specific and accurate that way.
It si a very straight forward connection and you need two HDMI cables.
1) Connect the Satellite Box's HDMI out to the Receivers HDMI In ( any one of the sockets labeled TV/SAT or Video AUX etc ).
2) Connect the Receiver's HDMI out to the TV's HDMI In.
Every thing will work fine except if you switch off the power of some receivers the TV will stop getting HDMI signals ( ie no sound or video if Receiver is Off )

The other way of connecting is to connect the SAT BOX's HDMI cable directly to the TV's HDMI In and if your SAT BOX has a digital Audio out ( Optical or Coaxial ) connect that to the Receivers Digital In. This way you will need only one HDMI cable and one Optic fiber or Coaxial cable. And the advantage is even if the Receiver is Off you can watch video and hear its sound through the TV.

This is a site where you can download a manual. I'm not familiar with Denen however, you should be able to go out of satellite receiver(HDMI) to your receiver input(tv/sat) then to your HDMI input on tv. Your receiver might show video and sound through another port of receivers options, ie; video 1, video 2, etc. Check all putput options for your picture and sound. Hope this helps.

Our receiver is connected to our cable box via an HDMI cable. Picture and audio show up fine, then goes out for a minute and then comes back--this keeps happening. Every time the picture/sound disappear,...


Connect the TV directly to cable box to make sure the TV and cable box are ok. If you have picture then the receiver is no good. Some Denons have problem with HDMI board (digital unit).

Denon AVR-2307CI HDMI won't always connect


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.

No video on Denon avr 688


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

Connection problem with HDMI cables on Denon AVR-589


Hello,
I want to clairify you install, you sat you have I an HDMI cable running from the Time Warner Cable box to the AVR-589, going in to the TV/CBL input. From the Denon AVR-589, I have an HDMI cable running from the output to my Toshiba RV525U television.

Check the connection at the TV, if as you indicated above you have an HDMI cable from the HDMI out from the Denon to an HDMI output on the TV, if this is the case you need to have that HDMI cable plugged into an input on the TV not an output

Speaker crackle


HDMI is a High Definition Multimedia Interface and has the capability to transmit both AUDIO and VIDEO all in one cable. Your setup right now is transmitting 2 audio frequecys (L/R stereo RCA and HDMI) into the Denon inputs. Not necessary! I would recommend eliminating the red/white audio cable from the direct tv box to the Denon.

After doing such, your receiver should be able to process audio/video signals appropriately. REMEMBER to unplug all POWER CORDS before reconnecting any speaker/audio/video cable, as it may cause a small electrical surge and fry a micro component in your system!
