Question about Denon AVR-2801 Receiver
Sounds like you're connected to a cable, satellite, or DVR box ("set top box"). Many times these units have their own volume controls.
Try reducing the volume of the set top box to 80% or below, preferrably somewhere between 50% and 70%. When the volume is set too high, the background noise will be amplified as well, which then gets amplified by your receiver and becomes audible.
You will need to adjust the volume level of your receiver to compensate for the lower input level, and keep in mind that some channels may have more noise than others. It'll be a balance between having all your input sources are relatively-similar input levels (so you don't have to adjust the volume a lot when switching between sources) and how much noise you can hear or ignore.

Connect the audio outputs jacks from the TV to any available audio input terminals on the Yamaha receiver, other than the phono input. You can use any analog audio Left (White) and Right (Red) inputs on your receiver such as the DTV/CBL, SAT or VCR input. There are no special settings needed on the receiver, other than selecting the correct input. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on the TV. Consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output audio to an external source. If youre TV has a digital output (Optical or Coaxial) it can also be run to one of the digital inputs on the Yamaha receiver, such as DTV/CBL or DVD. There may be some settings that will need to be changed on your TV. As always, consult the TV ownersEmanual for setting up the TV to output digital audio to an external source.
NOTE: When the source of the audio signal is coming from an HDMI device connected to the TV, the TV may not output in 5.1 surround sound.
