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.
