I recently just connected a coaxial audio cable to from my DVD player to my Refeiver (Denon AVR 588), it was working at first then i messed with a couple settings under input, and now i have no sound with the DVD player, and i can't seem to get it back. I put the input levels back to what the manual says are default, but it still won't work. Suggestions please.
Had the same problem - have a 3-yr old Sony DVD without hdmi - used RGB for video (hooked it up directly to tv) and optical cable for audio (connected to OPT-2 in receiver) and problem solved. the standard red/wht audio cables also worked.

Before we play taps and throw dirt on top of the Denon, perhaps a bit more triage is in order. I'm not certain who the patient is. Especially when you have "speaker issue" in the title. Are you saying there are some speakers that don't work ONLY with BluRay?
If it has NEVER worked the (unnamed) BD player or its cable(s) could be at fault, too.
What 'connections' are we talking about. HDMI, coaxial- or optical audio, 5.1 analog; to what input on the Denon assigned to what function?
Have you tried all audio paths out of the BD player? Is it configured to squawk in the right digital mode?
Do you have any other digital audio sources (CD/DVD) you could use to certify the audio paths that don't work with the BD player?
First set the DVD player To mono and then see. Check if the DVD assigned to coaxial input in receiver menu? Check if the Digital out activated in player menu?
There are quite a few ways to
connect cable box, DVD, receiver and TV together. At a
minimum---Connections between DVD and a/v receiver: For Audio, either
digital coaxial, digital optical or simple RCA (CABLE ONE); If you did
not use RCA you need to connect Video with either component or s-video
(CABLE TWO). For connection between a/v receiver and TV: either
component, s-video or RCA (CABLE THREE) You did not mention how your
cable (or sattelite) box is connected. You could use same set-up as
between DVD and a/v receiver for another one or two cables depending on
If it is set to automatically detect connections then by default it will send signal to the one with the highest bandwidth, much like back in the day when you might have S video and composite connected simultaneously to the same input. So if you have your HDMI input assigned to DVD it will output that over optical or coaxial.
The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.
This reciever does not decode the audio through HDMI, the HDMI ports are simply a pass-through. To get audio you need to connect an optical audio cable from the PS3 to the reciever also. I figured this out after 2 hours of trying to get audio from the HDMI cable. Here is a link that shows the different audio formats supported through HDMI by the different Denon models. It looks like the AVR-788 is the lowest model that supports audio through HDMI. Hope that helps.
the avr-588 apparently cannot carry sound via hdmi - don't know why; just what i found out from the geek squad at best buy; solved the problem by connecting optical cable from cable box to receiver; be sure to change the input on the receiver for opt-2 (system setup >2 inputs) to correlate with tv
Press the input select button on front of receiver until auto is displayed it may be set for analog. Auto mode will play digital signal first then if it does not see a digital input it will check for analog signal. I would set it to auto for all inputs you may use.
