The Denon 688 does not process sound via HDMI, you have to run a seperate cable to get sound. Choices are analog audio jacks (red and white) or either a toslink (optical) cable or an rca digital audio cable.

Cheers!

No sound coming out of speakers tuner or cat/tv


Please add details of setup so I can help you. For example. My Directv box hooks into my HDTV HDMI. Sound is carried inside that cable. I then get sound on my TV from my Directv RCVR without any other hookup. But I do have more. I use an optical cable to go into my Denon 1312 TV/optical input. Since my Wii, PS3, VCR, and formerly Xbox360 all plug into the HDTV inputs and I use it to switch. The Denon is not HDMI capable so this is best for me.

This is the first thing I would try. hook the HDMI to your HDTV from the CATV/SAT box and turn up the sound on the TV. [Box and TV on and correct input used] If you hear audio, the hook it back up as before. Now, turn on the Denon to radio. and turn it up. Got sound?
NO: check speakers and speaker setting. Let's say you have speakers hooked to A but not B. is the selector on B or AB. That won't work. It has to match the hookup. If speakers are on A only, select A only, etc. Also check with known good speakers. Also check all cables to be plugged into the correct spot and plugged in fully.
Thanks PM me if you need more help.

No video on Denon avr 688


After days of frustration the real problem was with the cable box. It needed a firmware update. Following forum advice I disconnected the cable box power cord for a few minutes, reconnected it, allowed the cable box to reinitialize. Turned off receiver and TV. Turned TV back on and set it to HDMI connection, turned on receiver and all worked fine. Great picture and sound.( Needed to buy an optical cable to go from the cable box to the receiver to get sound from the speaker system. )--the dirtybird

Speaker interference


you should be able to disconnect the analog audio cables from the cable box and Denon, with the HDMI connected, press the input mode button on the front left of the reciever to select auto and that should fix the issue

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

Denon AVR-688 Dolby Digital issues


IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO CONNECT ANALOG AUDIO IN ADDITION TO THE OPTICAL, COAXIAL OR HDMI AUDIO CONNECTION. IF USING OPTICAL OR COAXIAL CONNECTIONS BE SURE TO CONFIGURE IT IN THE RECEIVERS DIGITAL ASSIGNMENT AREA IN SETUP.
ALSO, ON THE FRONT OF THE RECEIVER IS AN INPUT MODE BUTTON, PRESS THIS BUTTON UNTIL AUTO IS DISPLAYED

No sound when ps3 is hooked up to a denon avr 1609


The 1609 only has video on the HDMI. No audio comes through the HDMI cables. Hook up an optical cable between your ps3 and the receiver and you should be good to go.

No audio from PS3.


works great, plenty of plug-ins, easy set up, but you get 2 hdmi ins 1 out. hdmis' work great one cable for sound and video but the denon avr588 doesn't accept sound through the hdmi cable.(it's noted in the manual) why not? i don't understand. so you go with optical or coaxial for audio. it works but extra cables.

Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3


If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).
  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

Denon AVR 588 7.1-- Sound setup questions


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.
