Question about Denon AVR-884 6.1 Channels Receiver
My Denon AVR-884 is working only with very low volume, with higher volume it's shutting itself off. I check the speaker connections and they are connected properly (in phase). I have 5 speaker connections for 2 front, 2 back and center + active subwoofer.
I hooked up cable box via component and optical, DVD via component and digital coax. (out via component to my projector). Additionally I have hooked up CD player via RCA cable and VCR/DVD combo via component cable. (out via RCA video to the projector).
Can you help me figure out why the receiver is shutting itself off at higher volume? It was plugged in like that for years and now something happened. Thanks. Konrad

It sounds like the receiver has a loose internal or unprotected part causing interference most likely a defect, I would take it back and get a different one if you can and then let us know if the same thing happens. If it does then you have other problems but I think that you just have a defective unit. Let me know how this goes and if you need further help, just ask

If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an
HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the
PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care
of the video side.
Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.
Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).

There is a button on the front of the unit under Input its a mode button press this button to select auto that should give you sound

and I'd evaluate the speaker load you're presenting to make sure it's effectively higher than 6-0hms per speaker channel.
