Question about Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Surround sound I have a Denon AVR-1804/884 Surround Receiver. I can only get a signal to my TV using the S-video connection and a RCA/75 ohm connection from my Verizon cable box. The Color Difference (Component Y, PR/CR, PB/CB) cable doesn't work, even though they worked fine before I installed the Denon unit. Can I just use the Surround sound for audio and return to the direct video connection I installed before the surround Sound? Or how can I get the Component cables to work with the Denon unit?

Hi

Your receiver is capable of video conversion, so there should be no problem using your component cable.

Does your TV accept component, or only S-Video? If you can run component to your TV, the best quality signal path would be using a component cable from your Verizon box to your receiver, and component from your receiver to your TV.

Make sure you have set up the video input correctly, so that it is set to accept the incoming signal on the correct sockets.

No surround sound in TV mode


Surround sound will only work if the source signal is coded as surround. Many older TV broadcast programs are stereo only. If your surround sound is working with a DVD or blu-ray then the broadcast source is the problem

My Denon AVR-75 seems to stay in standby (red standby light is on) and I don'd get surround sound through it. How do I get it out of standby?


if the receiver does not power on from standby there is a problem like bad power supply or even bad macroprocessor. You need to bring it to a service center for diagnosing. 10-years old receiver, maybe better to buy new one.

This is a site where you can download a manual. I'm not familiar with Denen however, you should be able to go out of satellite receiver(HDMI) to your receiver input(tv/sat) then to your HDMI input on tv. Your receiver might show video and sound through another port of receivers options, ie; video 1, video 2, etc. Check all putput options for your picture and sound. Hope this helps.

Denon AVR 883 Audio glitch


More than likely the protector circuit is getting activated... You can't go below 6 ohms on the surround back which means you need 12 ohm or higher speakers for outside (since the two outputs for surround back/zone2 are in parallel). As a simple diagnostic test, disconnect one speaker and see if the sound survives longer than 2 seconds.

Best Way ti connect a Denon AVR-1602 Surround Sound system with a Bell Express View Satlite reciever and Plasma TV


lets see, 3100 has no digital out, so you need analog inputs for the audio. Best picture with the 3100, use S-video. Digital input for the DVD sound and S-video in for picture. OOPS....does your TV have a S-Video input ?. If not then you have to use the RCA standard video type connector, as this particular denon doesnt do up or down conversion to or from S-video to old style RCA.

Sorry for the late response.....Rob

PS.....the HD bell wont do you any good with this receiver nbecause it doesnt have component video inputs. Enjoy Bells' superior picture with regular TV . Its way better than cable. Rob

Loss of sound on the Denon AVR 2807 a/v surround receiver when I turn on and off lights in my house


Finally the problem was with the HDMI cable. When I pushed it in on the TV set the problem disappeared. It seems the connections must be quite firm on the HDMI cables otherwise anything may interfere to the sound.
