I have a problem with my Denon AVR1804 receiver. The receiver works only on 2 Channel stereo (Front Spealer) when I'm playing CD, DVD and radio. It wont work when I tried to use to 5/6 channel stereo, DTS or Cinema setting. All 6 speakers are not working when audio is set to 5/6 Channel stereo. I would apprecaite if somebody can give me idea how to fix this problem.

Without knowing exactly what your problem is, perhaps you are not playing sound that was recorded in at least 5.1 format. A DVD or BluRay will indicate the format on the cover. The data is decoded and split into (for example) six discreet audio channels. Left front, Centre front, Right front, Surround Left, Surround Right and LFE (Low frequency effects) If you are playing a standard stereo audio disc, then the sound will only be heard from the front L&R speakers, which are expected to be full range speakers. You can, however choose an audio configuration that also provides a signal for the SUB (LFE) and even a pseudo surround. If you want more info I'm happy to help. Just tell me exactly what sound source you are playing and we can work it out.
Cheers for now, Don.
Front panel button engaged for 5 or 7 channel operation? Also check front panel rear surround speakers button is engaged. Should get you back to 7.1 unless you have changed the rear surround speaker setup for a 2nd zone, also be sure you have a 7.1 DSP setting enabled.

Of your five plugs, a red and white next to each other will plug in to the audio in on your denon (Red is for Right) I would use something like the VCR-3 pair on the left side of the rear panel. The other three, Red Green and Blue are for Video Component In on the denon; Use either Video-1 or Video-2 in the component section on the right half of the rear panel.
At his point, it will be best to look at the manual, because you will have to pair the two items together in the menu system. It takes a little patience but isn't too hard.
