Question about Denon AVR-3803 Receiver

1 Answer

No output to Zone 2 from preout to 2nd power amp for second room speakers

We reconfigured our system adding a DISH HD-DVR which worked well after the technician installation, including transmission of audio to our extra room speakers (connecting main unit now through HDMI and optical audio cables). Suddenly we get no audio out of the preout connection (Surround/Zone 2) to the ancillary power amp, neither for our DISH receiver nor the HD DVD player (RGB video connection). When I connect an iPOD directly to the power ampw e get full audio. I've read that when HDMI is used in Zone 1 that some amps won't send a signal to Zone 2, but since all initially worked well I can't imagine that is the problem. How can I trouble shoot the Zone 2 input throuth the pre-out connections and get my remote speakers working?

    Hi,

    I have a very similar problem.
    I have had a Denon AVR-3803 amp for about 3 years and have been very happy with it.

    For the first time, I today tried to use the Zone 2 feature to output sound to another amp and speakers.

    I followed the instructions in the manual but no sound comes through at all.

    I have audio leads connected to the Zone 2 output and have tried them on Rec Out and VHS out too.

    I have set the system to enable the remote to change the volume on Zone 2. The amp recognises that the volume has been changed, but no sound is forthcoming.

    Thanks!
    Richard

OK, From what I am understanding is that you both are trying to uilize a digital audio source (HDMI cables are digital audio only) and hence this is the problem. You can only use an analog audio source (connection) to utilize the audio output to zone 2. A simple soultion is to use the analog audio in conjuction with the digital. Connect the digital (HDMI, Optical, Coax) to the main zone and the left and right audios to zone 2.

Trying to program bose univeral remote to control vip622 dvr. I have tried the codes bose suggested.


Hi my name is Mike Houston a Social Media Representative at DISH. I see you have a Bose universal remote and you want to program it to your VIP622 DVR. We do not have codes to setup other remotes to our DISH equipment. With our SD/HD receivers they are installed with a DISH universal remote that can control many different components including a Bose system. If you have any further DISH questions please e-mail me at michael.houston@dish.com

Dish HD-DVR connected to a Denon 3808ci via an HDMI cable. Problem is periodically, the screen goes black for a split second and then comes back. Rewind and play again the blackout doesn't repeat. When...


Your'e losing digital data from Dish or the DVR. Since even live TV is through the DVR it is always a potential problem when anything glitches. That it doesn't repeat on immediate rewind/playback says the data made it to the hard drive ok.

The Denon is only defaulting back to an analog audio feed upon loss of the digital (preferred) one.

If it affects the video AND audio simultaneously the cause is something common to them.

I'd look at HDMI cabling into the Denon from the DVR.

Don't blame the Denon just yet.

My $.02:

I'd skip the video right past the Denon to the TV/Monitor even if it means using component cables instead of HDMI, but keep digital audio coming in from the DVR. Added cabling and connections never improve anything. Plus, HDMI cables are expensive.

It would be interesting to see if the problem comes back and affects only the audio or the video.

If you use optical cable make sure it has smooth flowing curves and no small-radius bends that would lose light power.

Press 2 to ensure Aux is set to audio. 3.Enter code 761 and press the pound (#) button. Now to have the satellite remote default volume to Bose Solo do the following. 1.Press and hold AUX 2.press # pound 3. Press the + side of volume 4. Press 0 5. Press pound ( AUX button will flash 3 times) 6. Press SAT mode 7. Test the volume on Bose Solo. (see page 22 of Bell 9242 guide)

My dish DVR HD control doesn't work


lumaes200,

You have indicated that you have a 622 DVR receiver, since this is where your posting was found. When you trying any of the DVR functions on the remote, do you get an error message (024 or 311) indicating that the function is not available at this time? If not, try unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds from the electrical outlet. This will reboot the receiver and re-acquire the satellite signal. Once the picture returns, try the DVR function. If the problem continues, please call 1-800-333-3474; we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

I lose my audio often for non-hd channels with dish 622 dvr


The problem could lie in youir HDMI cable, this is a common issue. if you swap HDMI cables and still have the same problem then bypass your A/v rec and connect your 622 direct to your tv and see if the problem persists, it it does, then your DVR needs to be replaced, you can call dish for addition troubleshooting if it is in fact your DVR.

Hope this helps.

You are not able to use the DVR unless you have Dish Network services. Cable operates at a different frequency than Dish Networks Dish Pro Plus Receivers.

TIVO HD DVR


OK, I had Dish network come out and install DVR HD. Had pixel des torsion viewing everything I recorded. They came out 3 time and replace DVR and check everything 3 time with no improvement. I had them remove everything.
I called Direct tv and they did the same thing. installed there dish and cables and DVR. Same problems. My question is? Is this the nature of this equipment or is there something they are missing.
