Set up Denon AVR 3806 to HD DVD player

I have a Denon AVR 3806 receiver. I just purchased a Toshiba A-35 HD DVD player. The HDMI connection only gives me the video. For audio, I aslo have to connect them together by optical cable. How do I set up the receiver to recognize the optical connection?
Thank you,

Geesh! Finally found it in that encyclopedia of an instruction manual. If you have the manual, the solution is on page 63. If not, I'll provide an attached image below.

Digital projector is shutting down as soon as dvd

Hi make sure that in the projector menu it doesn't have an option to cancel "control" as many tv's with hdmi have the capability to receive command signals through the hdmi cable.

Also make sure that your receiver is set for hdmi signal you must designate which input you are using on the receiver and then tell it what type of signal you want it to use.

you may have just pushed a button that changed these settings somewhere along the way.

hope that helps

Make sure the control feature is disabled on both units so that they are not trying to send control signals to each other.

Secondly make sure your input is configured to hdmi for both audio and video within the receivers on screen menu The receiver usually auto senses the digital audio signal but doesn't automaticly know that it should use hdmi for video.

Display on but no sound from any input

I have a similar problem. I connected a Toshiba HD-a2 dvd player and cannot get digital audio from any of the hd movies. Regular dvd's play just fine. Toshiba told me the receiver is to old and can't process the new format. I was wondering if there is an upgrade for the receiver or any other way I can get 5.1 out of this receiver with out having to get a new one..

Poping in speakers

Same issue with my AVR-589...2-15 minutes after sound is playing (via TV or DVD). I checked all wires and speakers. Even reconfigured to audio only (analog) coming in, same issue. Put my old Denon receiver in and the problem disappears...possible overheating issue with this new unit?
