I am not able to get audio through my HDMI cables.
I have a denon AVR-3808 and a denon DVD 1940 connect to a samsung series 5 LED monitor and I have no audio coming through.
I have gone through the set up several times and changed the input and assign to digital. I have an optical cable that i need to plug into the receiver from the samsung also but dont know where it should go for tv sound through my amp?

I believe it is like my Denon AVR-3808 as it's a HDMI v1.3 compliant. For 3D you need 1.4. So I now use optical cables to the AVR and HDMI to the TV. Then config the DNLA player to split the video to HDMI and the 5.1 sound to optical.
I understand, it's something I've misunderstood on my denon avr-790 as well when connected to a samsung 8000 series led tv. The answer isn't in the receiver's settings (you can be on whatever source you want on the receiver end when toggling the menu). You need to toggle through the tv's sources to find the menu (usually found on hdmi 1). I've spent towards an hour recently troubleshooting only to find that it was the tv's source that wasn't set properly and I was trying to change the receiver's settings instead of the tv's source. Hope that helps!
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!!)
It turns out there is a problem using hdmi cables with integrated amplifiers Denon dvd players (the 1940 series) - the hdmi cable processes the visual signal before the audio signal. Therefore there is what appears to be a lip syncing problem because there is a short 'time delay' between the visual and audio signals. I would advise anyone to simply use an AV reciever as they incorporate time delay technology so the visual and audio signals are in perfect sync. Luckily, Richer Sounds, where I bought the intergrated amp gave me a full refund, no quibbles or hassle. I would like to add I am unsure if the problem lies with just the Denon 1940 hdmi dvd players and intergrated amps or ALL hdmi players. Also, I was trying to achieve a simple 2 speaker set up with the amp.
The forum on What Hi-Fi document this problem with much better clarity and technical explanation that my understanding of the problem. However, the lesson learned is, if you want any speaker set up with your dvd player, use a dedicated AV reciever.
Just confirming my understanding of your connections :
1). The DVD1800BD output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVD-in HDMI.
2). The DVD/VHS recorder output HDMI is connected to AVR3808's DVR-in HDMI.
3). The DVD/VHS recorder input (S-video and L/R Audio) is connected to AVR3808's DVR-out(SVideo and L/R Audio).
What other inputs have been connect to your AVR3808?
Does the recorder have Component Video inputs?
Please also connect DVD1800BD's output(Component video, S-Video and L/R Audio) to AVR3808s' DVD-in similar inputs and try recording onto your recorder.
Actually, its possible that you may be having a HDMI HDCP communication issue(High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) with the source product (DVD1800BD). First check with the source equipment manufacturer for any updates to their products.
If HDMI video is not passing through your AVR3808, you can connect it thru the alternate connection method I have mentioned above.
If the connections/recording still does not happen with the added anolog cables, then let me know , we can trouble shoot it further.
I hope the above helps.

You say your connected from the DVD to the Denon with an HDMI cord and the Denon to the TV with an HDMI cord and you get no DVD video? can you get the Denon setup menu? if so change the res. output on the DVD to 480p, 720p or 1080i but not 1080p
HDMI input connect as follows: 1.Connect an HDMI cable from the Cable box to the TV/CBL HDMI input on the Denon. 2.Connect an HDMI cable from the Xbox to the DVD/HDP input on the Denon. 3.Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI out-put on the Denon to an input on the Samsung. You don’t have to use the optical output from these to devices since the HDMI cable allows for the transfer of both audio and video, if you have them extra use them in addition tothe HDMI cable and last, 4.On front of denon after you setup and assign your optical connections, if you use them, once you select TV/CBL or DVD/HDP as a source, press the input mode button to select auto
