Is it possible to to have a home theatre with Denon AVR 3600
I have a Denon AVR 3600 and having been using it for about 6 years , very happy with the performance, was previously using it with Tannoy DC3000, I replaced the Tannoy with Bose 901 series VI , however not able to get a clean 5.1as the Bose equalizer does not get connected with the Home theatre mode.I have checked the Bose catalog and it say the Home Theatre amplifier should have and the rear side horse shoe pins which connect from pre amp out to main amp in, the Denon 3600 does not have this option and I don't see any other brands of AVR's in the market with this option, please suggest/advise how do I connect the Bose 901 with the Denon 3600, Thankyou

Re: Is it possible to to have a home theatre with Denon ...
One option that may yield results, since the bose connection to equalizer is presently not possible is to set the speaker out put on the denon for 'small' on all but the front speakers. and then set the delay for all speakers based on the distance to the amp. this should result in better audio that that with the bose eq. will work on the issue of using the eq. with the denon if you like. but, you will likely not improve on the sound with the denon set up correctly. good luck mark

When connecting your AVR-1706 to your LG TV, you will most likely be limited by the connections on your AVR-1706 as it does not have any HDMI capability.
In this case, depending on your LG TV, you would get the best video performance by using the component video connections from your TV to the Receiver. These are the one labeled Y, Pb, and Pr. These are special cables and you will need 2 sets if you want to run video out of your TV (perhaps you are using the internal tuner). Refer to page 6 of your AVR manual for the TV video inputs. Please note you will only use one type of input such as Component, S Video or Composite (descending order of performance). You must connect the Video Out from your AVR to the back of the TV's Video In as shown on page 6 as a minimum to get signals from devices other than the TV.
On page 12 of your AVR manual you can see the connections for TV outputs including the audio connections to the AVR. In the case of audio, you can either use Optical Digital (Toslink) out from the TV or coaxial (RCA) cables: Again in descending order of performance.
I only have a fuzzy brochure (no manual) for this unit.
Are the channel indicators normal or at least Front L and R lit?
Do you have headphones and/or can you run an audio pair out from, say, VCR1 (but DON'T select it on the front panel), to the TV to see if there is any audio passing through the unit with an FM station tuned?
Or a tape deck that you can use to prove some kind of programming is circulating internally?
You didn't answer about the Tape Monitor or DAT/Tape 1 being OFF.
manual is here: http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-589-OM-E_006.pdf
Note on page 11 says "because video signals are out put from the AVR-589's monitor output terminal IN THE SAME FORMAT AS THE VIDEO SIGNALS, THE MONITOR OUTPUT TERMINAL SHOULD BE THE SAME TYPE AS THE TERMINAL USED FOR INPUT."
You cannot mix the HDMI with the others. You must therefore use the same on DVD and Cable box.
this happened to me once and I found that my reciever would just shut down. make sure that you have plenty of space above the amp. it may be over heating and shutting down on you and when it cools down, it turns back on. there will most likely the "overload" light will be lit when it shuts down the audio.
