Your best set up is to plug the DVD and the direct tv optical or coaxial out. The Denon has both. You will then have to choose digital input on the receiver. There is a blue indicator light that will light and a graphic that will show all speakers are working. There is also a pink noise test that will play each speaker in order. This test button is located on the remote.

Surround Sound System Settings ---- Correct Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Audio
A correctly set surround sound system can yield dramatic improvements to your home theater sound or multi-channel music listening experience. In particular, a correctly set time delay setting between the different channels is essential for a realistic and unified surround soundfield. Luckily, most of today's surround processors make setting the time delays between the rear and the fronts a matter of a few entries in the setup menu. Yet having a proper understanding of the principles behind correct time delay settings is essential for the best results. In this guide, we explain the principles behind time delay settings in surround sound and show you how to adjust your surround processor or AV receiver for the best surround sound field.
Time Delay Setting in Multi-channel Surround Sound Systems
Correct home theater speaker placement and properly balanced sound levels between the different channels in multi-channel audio, while crucial, are not enough to sustain a unified soundfield in a surround sound setup. A correctly set surround sound system requires that sound from all the different speakers reach the listener at exactly the same instant. This explains why all fronts, left, right and center channel speakers, should be set at exactly the same distance from the listening position. At the same time, in a typical home theater setup, the surround speakers are closer to the viewer than the fronts.
To compensate for this distance discrepancy, surround sound playback systems apply a split-second delay to the surround sound channels. ----------------------------
In the 2807 the HDMI out is a video out only. Audio is not processed through the HDMI output.
If you are using speakers it is best to adjust the playback modes to stereo if you are annoyed with surround sound modes.
Please comment if I helped.
Finally the problem was with the HDMI cable. When I pushed it in on the TV set the problem disappeared. It seems the connections must be quite firm on the HDMI cables otherwise anything may interfere to the sound.
To reboot, turn receiver off by the small on/off button, not the big standby button. While off press the night and pure direct button at the same time and keep holding them with your right hand while pressing the small on/off button with your left. You will see your receiver menu flash. When you see it flash let go of the night and pure direct button and the receiver will reset it self to the radio station 87.50. The receiver's microprocessor has now been set back to factory. Enjoy this info is straight from Denon's Tech support. I had to do this on mine
