Question about Denon AVR588 Receiver

1 Answer

DENON AVR588 setup

I just purchased this AV receiver; my first one. I am having troubles understanding how to use the remote and also set up the menus to line up my video devices and audio. I have an XBOX 360 (svideo), DVD player with ( Svideo&Coax audio) and Digital Cable TV receiver (svideo) as video inputs and a 5 channel speaker system. All are connnected
and all combinations actually show video and drive audio - except its trial and error with me hitting the Video Select key on the remote and the Input keys on the top of the remote. And I dont fully understand how the yellow keys on the back of the remote are different from the front. The manual is not that helpful. Is there a place that provides more information on how to use this device? or can you help me with some basics. thanks.

    I've got the Cable signal in through the receiver (Coax Audio - Composite Video) to my TV set and it works fine. My CD player goes through just fine, BUT

    I can't get the DVD video signal through... I have audio when I connect composite (red/white) but no image with component (red/blue/green). Also can't get the PS2 to play (Composite red/white/yellow).

Most owners manuals are not that clear to most people. I would suggest getting the mailing address to Denon customer technical service online. Consult them as to questions you have on unit or remote

Denon AVR 1609 volume Zone 2


Logitech recommends that zone 2 is controlled using device mode on your Harmony remote. Controlling zone 1 and zone 2 simultaneously within activities may lead to the AV Receiver turning on and off unexpectedly as you switch between activities. For example, if you try to turn on zone 2 within an activity, it may turn on or off zone 1 and vice versa. Controlling zone 2 in device mode will prevent this from happening.

My denon avr588 doesnt work with the remote controller


First lets make sure the remote is in the right mode, in the center of the remote are two slider switches, one on the left and one on the right
make sure the one on the right is in the Audio position and switch on the right should be in the cd position if this does not help check out the link and page 25

Cant Access System Setup on Denon AVR-588


Are you connected with video cables to a tv or "monitor" this is more than likely were the setup is visible for speaker configuration, input assignment etc, most denon receivers work this way so I would suspect you need to re-check the video connection until a set-up picture appears.

No audio from PS3.


works great, plenty of plug-ins, easy set up, but you get 2 hdmi ins 1 out. hdmis' work great one cable for sound and video but the denon avr588 doesn't accept sound through the hdmi cable.(it's noted in the manual) why not? i don't understand. so you go with optical or coaxial for audio. it works but extra cables.

Denon AVR587 Setup


red/white/yellow = composite
red/green/blue= component video cables + audio cables needed

the red/white= stereo audio

the denon 587 has 2 optical (toslink) inputs and 2 digital coax. These are surround sound cables basically, it's the only way to get true 5.1 dolby or dts.

connect cable box, and the samsung to the sony using hdmi. then connect the cable box and the samsung to the denon receiver with optical cable. And that's it.
