Denon AVR-4306 Optical In problem

Hi,

Whenever I connect a device such as a TV or Media Center PC to the Optical In ports they do not produce any sound. The other ports seem to work fine. I have tried connecting to 3-4 different optical in ports using a Toslink cable from multiple devices and have no luck. I am setting the Audio In - Digital In Assign to Optical 1 and am attaching the cable correctly. The video from my Media Centre PC comes through the HDMI cable fine and works with RCA jacks. Is there another setting besides Digital In assign I need to make or do you think it is a hardware problem?

Thanks

SOURCE: Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3

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).

  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

SOURCE: Need help connecting PS3 to my Denon AVR-3801

You could try sticking a vcr/dvd player in between the connections and using those input/outputs instead.

SOURCE: Have put an optical cable from optical digital out

You need to do digital input assignment. Go to SETUP, DIGITAL INPUT ASSIGNMENT, set OPTICAL 1 for your input (DVD).

SOURCE: Unable to assign optical and digital inputs to other inputs

It won't let you assign the same input twice. Check to see that DVD is not already assigned to any other In(x) function.

From the manual:
• You cannot select a specific item more than once.
• You cannot assign the same input source to both “IN (2)” and
“IN (3)”. For example, you assign “CD” to “IN (2)”, “–––”
appears in “IN (3)”.

I can't get a menu screen up on my Denon AVR 2803.


Did someone turn the OSD off on the menu? You might try a reset of the receiver. This would be in your manual.

Trying to connect HP M9060N and Sharp Aquos through Denon AVR 1508, only get 'no signal' response. Have HDMI 1 set to DVD, HDMI 2 to AUX, HDMI 3 to TV, which is order of HDMI outlets on receiver.


Depending on your TV inputs, you are better off to run video componenets through TV first then, connect TV to reciever via digital optical. Recievers have video pass through but, noyt the best route. You can use TV's menu to choose what you watch and, only have the one output from TV to reciever. Make sure you scan through TV and reciever menus to make sure you are selecting the right channel.

How can i upgrade denon avr 4306 up to 1080p?


You don't need to upgrade that model as it already supports 1080P. If you are using HDMI connections between the receiver your TV the receiver will upconvert the other analog video sources (composite and component video) to 1080 content. Most likely 1080i as this is the standard format when upconverting.

Hi Jim,
I tried connecting my dvr via component and optical to see if it was my hdmi or my dvr. Ended up being a bad hdmi plug in back of my amp. I was fortunate enough to have both style connections on my dvr. Hope this helps

No component output on AVR-4306


This does not work... You can only upscale the video signal with 4306; meaning you can covert s-video, component video to HDMI but can not down-convert HDMI input (coming from your HD DVD player) to Component video output. Sorry that I could not give you a solution as this is the 4306's limitation (written on the 4306 manual.).

On screen display


Try connecting to the yellow RCA monitor output on the amp and corresponding input on the TV. This works for me. You could also try the composite outputs on the amp. This is one flaw the amp has that the setup screen will not display through the HDMI connection.

Cannot connect denon products to computer


Hello! I presume you are connecting it via the RS232 connection to the PC. This method is NOT plug and play, like a USB connection is, so you will have to install the driver that presumably came with it, then manually assign a port from within Windows. Although I don't have this amp, I have experience in connecting similar devices using the RS232 interface. Also, make sure the BAUD speeds are correct. This is also defined from Windows.
