Denon AVR 887 Upconversion With Wii

Hi There:

I was reading your post and I'm about to hook the Wii up in the eact same fashion? Did you ever find a way to pass component upconversion through the HDMI cable?

Thanks!

I have this hookup and it's working almost perfectly:

Wii --component--> Avr-887 --HDMI--> Sharp LCD TV

Sometimes the pictures don't show up during start up, but I figured it was (probably) due to Sharp's HDMI handshake issue, so I turned the TV off and then on, everything works.

Denon avr-887 code for comcast silver remote, red key. The 2 codes comcast gives me do not work. Any other codes known?


These are the codes that I have from a few extra sources. They are for ALL Denon receivers/tuners: (3 digit = 262,307)For the AVR all numbers consisting of a 4 number code, all begin with a "5". Here they are: 5006, 5048,5054,5085,5129, 5130, 5131, 5132, 5133, 5134, 5152, 5159, 5160, 5168.I was able to get my 529 rc to program some of the features but I will go back and try other codes that may have a better "fit" and operate more features. Hope this helps!

Where is the fuse in a denon AVR-887


It has to have one---follow the power cord inside the unit--if fuse is good consider taking it to a shop for an estimate.

No video on Denon 1508


Coax-2 is audio. Where's the video from the cable tuner coming into the Denon?

Why don you need the cable to pass video through the Denon on iuts way to the TV anyway? Interconnnects rarely add value.

How to hook up a Wii to a Denon AVR 1708


If you are video switching through the Denon, you may need to make sure the inputs (analog, composite) are the same as the outputs. For example, you might have component out to the monitor, but composite in from the Wii. I don't believe the 1708 can do the upconversion. Try hooking up a yellow RCA cable from video out to the TV.

Im trying to hook up my wii to my surround sound and i have a denon avr-789 and im hooking it up to the aux outlet and im only getting sound no video


Connect all of your cables to your display and then connect another set of cables to your audio variable out from the television to the input you wish to get sound from on the receiver. Then make sure your tv is selected to the input you plugged the wii into, for example, Front video or Video 1 etc etc.

Denon AVR-887 turns itself off in 5 secs, any one know why?


You might have the polarities on the speakers crossed, check all speaker connections to make sure the pos and neg are connected correctly. If they are crossed, this will cause the receiver to short out, thanks

Dolby digital problems


When using analog cables, switch the setting on the amp to 5CH STEREO or 7CH depending on your speaker configuration. This will give you consistant audio. Another option is to use either optical or SPDIF for digital sound. Good Luck.

Denon AVR-887 and Wii


I'm dealing with the very same frustration. Best I can tell, the problem with my setup is that this model (avr-887) can't pass component video input out through HDMI. Can anyone confirm that? 
Prior to setting up the Wii, I'd only been using a single HDMI output from the denon to my tv/monitor.
The only solution I've found is to add a component video output to the monitor -- which is unfortunate. I'd much rather have only the single HDMI out.
Would love to hear if there is a way to set this up without having to add the additional component output...

My Denon AVR-887 Keeps turning itself off


I have one and the same thing happened. try resetting your microprocessor and if that does not work, then check the wiring of the speakers. if that is working fine and no wires are touching then I unplugged everything and was still having the issue. took it in for service and it was found that the transmitor was shorted as the speakers that I was using was too high in ohms. it is possible that it could be your caps also if resetting the microprocessor does not help. You can find out how to reset the microprocessor from your manual. If you have the Denon avr 887 with the system turned off hold the power on button and the speaker A and B at the same time for a few seconds. This is compatible to rebooting your computer. Hope this works for you as this was and is my husbands favorite past times.
