Question about Denon AVR588 Receiver
I have messed with the settings for quite a while now but with no evident success.
I do not get a tone from speakers when in Setup. I do get audio through the speakers when I use the radio tuner -- so the speakers are connected and working.
When I try to run a PS3 either as a game or dvd player using HDMI cable into the receiver and another HDMI into my Panasonic plasma tv I only get sound via the speaker in my tv.... not through the speakers via the 588. What on earth am I doing wrong? The picture displays as 1080p so the HDMI is certainly passing the picture correctly.
I also have a satellite dish feeding through component cables (red,white,yellow) into the receiver and from there via the same type of cables into my tv. No luck at all.
My Sony DVD recorder is linked into my satellite receiver with component (red,white,yellow)and also into the Denon via composite (heavy cable with red,blue,green markings) for video and red,white for audio. Also no success.
I have also tried using optical cable from PS3 into the Denon (both input one and 2).
Please help me sort this out or my "buyer's remorse" will see the unit go back to the dealer.
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.

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.

Two suggestions for you.
1. If you look at the headphone jack connecton do you see one or two black O-rings or black lines on the jack. If you only see one they are Mono headphones and you would only get sound out of the left side. If there are two black lines they are stereo headphones and you should get sound on both the left & right sides.
2. If after checking the headphone jack connection and there are two black lines on it then I would suggest try a different pair of headphones to see if a different set of headphones works fine.
If a different pair of headphones works properly the original headphones may be bad. If neither set of headphones work properly it may be the reciever that may need to be repaired.
I hope it's not the receiver, but let me know if you have questions.
