Question about Denon AVR-3300 Receiver
My 3300 remote will not function... only the ON SOURCE & OFF buttons are functioning as of now. The problem is resent and started when I was attempting to integrate a HD DVR (DIRECT TV unit) into my system. I couldn't get the audio opt 1-3 on the FUNCTION selection for TV / DBS to work but manage to work it through FUNCTION selection for DVD on opt 1.
I tried every button on the unit and the remote at some point during this rather frustrating scenario. Did I lock the remote up and if so, how do I unlock?
Very important you have run system set up menu it configures your receiver with inputs analog or digital,speaker size,input,room correction etc Different input modes can be selected for the different input sources.
The selected input modes for the separate input sources are stored in
q AUTO (auto mode)
In this mode, the types of signals being input to the digital and
analog input jacks for the selected input source are detected and
the program in the AVR-3300’s surround decoder is selected
automatically upon playback. This mode can be selected for all
input sources other than PHONO, MD/TAPE and TUNER.
The presence or absence of digital signals is detected, the signals
input to the digital input jacks are identified and decoding and
playback are performed automatically in DTS, Dolby Digital or PCM
(2 channel stereo) format. If no digital signal is being input, the
analog input jacks are selected.
w PCM (exclusive PCM signal playback mode)
Decoding and playback are only performed when PCM signals are
e DTS (exclusive DTS signal playback mode)
Decoding and playback are only performed when DTS signals are
r ANALOG (exclusive analog audio signal playback mode)
The signals input to the analog input jacks are decoded and played.
t EXT. IN (external decoder input jack selection mode)
The signals being input to the external decoder input jacks are
played without passing through the surround circuitry Your remote is searching for inputs because you did not properly run system set up!!! Here is a link to your manual [PDF] AVR-3300/1 3.3E*

Your reciever has three digital optical inputs so, what it comes down to is how many thing do you want to hook up and what input/otput do you have on your TV. Best case scenario would be to hook your cable box directly to your TV Via HDMI out, if you have HD, on your cable box to Sat/cable input on your TV. Next best would be using componenet cables for video and digital optical for audio. Last would be RCA(yellow, white and red, from Cable box to TV input. Then, you would connect your TV to receiver via(best) digital optical, or RCA. You can try to patch the video through the reciever using component or RCA to TV/DBS on receiver then out to TV but. alot of times you will lose the video in the transfer and it uses more cables, thus more margiin for error. You would set your TV menu to cable/sat and your reciever to which ever input you choose.
