Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Denon 588 Although all cables are connected properly, and inputs assigned correctly, I am not getting the proper signal when switching between Cable and DVD, I get the cable signal with no sound from the DVD source, and I get both signals(sound and picture) from DVD at the VCR setting, despite not having a VCR installed. Is this a defect in the receiver?

Re: Denon 588

This is definitely a question of wrong cable assignment. I have the same reciever and have no such issues. What do you mean by "I get the cable signal with no sound from the DVD source"... Those are two different sources ???

I'm trying to connect a Samsung HD LCD tv to a Denon AVR1508 receiver using HDMI cable so that the TV sound comes thru the receiver/speakers. which jack do I use (on both the tv and the receiver,

connect the hdmi to the tv (hdmi input 1) and to the receiver (hdmi output) you must make sure that the receiver input settings are assigned correctly. Then hook up all of your devices to the receiver. remember that the 1508 dosent do hdmi upconversion, so if you have any devices that are NOT hdmi, you need to run rca cables from the output of you receiver to the input of your tv. If you have any digital inputs coming out of your devices, i would recommend using them. your 1508 has two inputs that are assignable.
If all of your devices are hooked up to your receiver, and its hooked up to your tv properly, just turn down the sound on your tv, and turn up the volume on your denon!

How do I set my receiver to read TV/CBL Dolby Digital. It is a AVR 789

The Dolby digital signal is outputted only through the Optical or Coaxial socket of the CBL box. you will have to get an optic fiber or coaxial cable depending which cable box you have and connect it to the digital input of the Denon receiver. The Denon's digital input are already assigned at the back. Eg: Optic input might be labeled CD so if you are connecting the CBL box to the optic input remember to select CD on the Denon to hear the cable sound, same goes with the coaxial input.

Component video problem. Hi I got the Denon AVR-3806 receiver and has it hooked up with a component cable to my background projection TV. To the reciever I have a satellite box connected also with a...

Just fixed this myself - made my head hurt to figure out. 1. Switch to a setting (say DVD). 2. Watch the AVR screen as it switches. You'll see the audio and video settings. For example, Audio = DVD, Video = DVD (Mine showed Audio = DVD, Video = DBS even though is was set correctly using the SETUP for audio and video)3. Under the round control knob on the left, push the (tiny) Video Select button. 4. Turn control know to choose the correct video source
Your system should work right. Mine did.

No audio on Denon AVR-588 from digital sources

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.

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.

We have a Denon AVR Surround Sound receiver, a Samsung HDTV, an XBox 360, an ASD-3W Denon Ipod Dock and Klipswitch speakers with a subwoofer, center channel and too bookshelf speakers. We need help...

HDMI input connect as follows:

1. Connect an HDMI cable from the Cable box to the TV/CBL HDMI input on the Denon.
2. Connect an HDMI cable from the Xbox to the DVD/HDP input on the Denon.
3. Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI out-put on the Denon to an input on the Samsung.
You don’t have to use the optical output from these to devices since the HDMI cable allows for the transfer of both audio and video, if you have them extra use them in addition to the HDMI cable and last,

4. On front of denon after you setup and assign your optical connections, if you use them, once you select TV/CBL or DVD/HDP as a source, press the input mode button to select auto

No HDMI video output from AVR-588 receiver to plasma TV ???

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

No Audio coming from DVD source

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.
