Question about Denon AVR-2801 Receiver

1 Answer

Video performance question

What kind of 'video' performance will I have if I upgrade to a hi end dvd player since my Denon lacks an HDMI connection, yet it has an optical in jack for audio? Can I connect the DVD player directly to my plasma tv via HDMI and then connect from the dvd players optical out to my Denons input?

The 2801 (I used to have a 2803) is just an AV receiver, so it doesn't do any video processing.

If you get a DVD player with HDMI or DVI output, you'll be better off doing what you said - bypass the receiver for video and connecting the video directly to your TV, and the audio to your receiver.

It makes things less convenient since you can't switch inputs only with the receiver's remote, but you'll get a much better picture.

If you really need to control the whole system with a single remote, consider getting a Logitech Harmony remote or something similar. They're very convenient.

I have a new Denon AVR 1911 receiver all hooked up to my input devices and output thru a single HDMI cable to my Samsung LCD tv.... problem with getting audio from my DVD player: my DVD player is older...


Not likely that all those things are faulty.

The TV and DVD player make and model would be helpful to know. I would recommend running its BEST digital audio to the receiver and its stereo analog audio to the TV just in case you want to watch and hear the DVD in a lo-fi setting without the Denon. I generally advocate for connecting anything high-end (audio or video) ONLY to equipment that can use it or enhance it. Otherwise you may just be wasting expensive cable and adding unnecessary hops and connections that can fail.

Why do you want the audio to go from the DVD to the TV through the Denon? Are there no speakers on the Denon? Modern TV's have lots of inputs for the flexibility I recommend but rarely have decent audio or speakers.

I want to connect my denon 790 to my 5:1 surround, HDMI DVD player and HD samsung 55'' LCD. what cables do i need and where to put them. thanks


You will need 1 HDMI cable to link between your DVD player and the Denon,plug the HDMI cord into the HDMI port on the back of your DVD player and the the other end into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled DVD,then you will need another HDMI cord to go between the Denon and your LCD TV,plug one end of the HDMI cord into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled HDMI monitor out and the other end into one of the HDMI ports on the back of your TV, it doesn't matter which one you use, just remember that you will have to change the input on the tv to that specific HDMI port when you play back a DVD and you will also have to change the Denon to DVD as your source to send the audio through the Denon to your surround sound speakers.( The Denon owners manual will help!!)

No video


The Denon does not down scale you can not plug a DVD or other device in to the Denon using HDMI and have it come out Component, if your projector only has Component video inputs you must use Component video connections from the DVD and Cable box to the Denon

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.

Connect and Enjoy

Hi' I have a Denon 3910 that is connected to an Infocus Projector via HDMI out on the Denon to DVI on the Infocus(One end of the lead is HDMI the other DVI) .problem has always been without the projector...


You can try this reset method, if it doesn't work it will probably need service by a professional. Remeber that all setting will be lost, make sure you know them so you can put them back in after you are finished.

At the player stop condition,
press 3 buttons for DVD operation
(“PLAY”,”OPEN/CLOSE”, and “ SKIP”) until
“INITIALIZE” appears and disappears in the display.
(“Initialized” appears and disappears on the TV screen.)
******All user setting will be lost and its factory setting will be
restored when this initialization is made. Be sure to memorize
your setting for restoring again after the initialization

HDMI connection???


Hi Greg,
Again, if you have a high definition dish box with HDMI output,and a dvd player with HDMI output,please connect them both directly to your TV HDMI inputs.
When watching TV(dishnetwork box).remember to switch the HDMI video inputs.
Same as your DVD player,you need to switch it under your TV video input.

BenQ FP241W 24" inch problem with HDMI connection


Sounds like the HDMI port on the monitor has been shorted out.
There are very small fuses on the video board that can be changed, but they are fiddly and you may end up doing more harm then good if you are not sure what your doing.
The fuses are actually soldered to the board...it's not a case of pop one out and pop one in like the glass type.


Hope it helps =)
