Denon AVR-887 and Wii

We got a Wii for Christmas and have been working all day to get it connected to our theater system through our Denon AVR-887. We know how the wiring should go - we can't get the receiver to recognize the Wii. Help!!!

Re: Denon AVR-887 and Wii

I'm dealing with the very same frustration. Best I can tell, the problem with my setup is that this model (avr-887) can't pass component video input out through HDMI. Can anyone confirm that? 
Prior to setting up the Wii, I'd only been using a single HDMI output from the denon to my tv/monitor.
The only solution I've found is to add a component video output to the monitor -- which is unfortunate. I'd much rather have only the single HDMI out.
Would love to hear if there is a way to set this up without having to add the additional component output...

Denon avr-887 code for comcast silver remote, red key. The 2 codes comcast gives me do not work. Any other codes known?

These are the codes that I have from a few extra sources. They are for ALL Denon receivers/tuners: (3 digit = 262,307)For the AVR all numbers consisting of a 4 number code, all begin with a "5". Here they are: 5006, 5048,5054,5085,5129, 5130, 5131, 5132, 5133, 5134, 5152, 5159, 5160, 5168.I was able to get my 529 rc to program some of the features but I will go back and try other codes that may have a better "fit" and operate more features. Hope this helps!

Connect wii to Avr 1312 Denon

What you would have to do is connect the video output of the wii directly to the video input of the bug projector. Also connect the audio cables to it as well. Then connect an audio cable to the projector's audio out or otherwise labeled as "variable out" then connect the other end of that to the matching input terminal, found often labeled as "audio in" on the receiver's grouping of input selections for TV.
Then, on the projector, select the video mode you connected the wii cables to.

Where is the fuse in a denon AVR-887

It has to have one---follow the power cord inside the unit--if fuse is good consider taking it to a shop for an estimate.

Denon AVR-887 turns itself off in 5 secs, any one know why?

You might have the polarities on the speakers crossed, check all speaker connections to make sure the pos and neg are connected correctly. If they are crossed, this will cause the receiver to short out, thanks

Denon AVR 887 Upconversion With Wii

I have this hookup and it's working almost perfectly:

Wii --component--> Avr-887 --HDMI--> Sharp LCD TV

Sometimes the pictures don't show up during start up, but I figured it was (probably) due to Sharp's HDMI handshake issue, so I turned the TV off and then on, everything works.

My Denon AVR-887 Keeps turning itself off

I have one and the same thing happened. try resetting your microprocessor and if that does not work, then check the wiring of the speakers. if that is working fine and no wires are touching then I unplugged everything and was still having the issue. took it in for service and it was found that the transmitor was shorted as the speakers that I was using was too high in ohms. it is possible that it could be your caps also if resetting the microprocessor does not help. You can find out how to reset the microprocessor from your manual. If you have the Denon avr 887 with the system turned off hold the power on button and the speaker A and B at the same time for a few seconds. This is compatible to rebooting your computer. Hope this works for you as this was and is my husbands favorite past times.
