If that is only a simple/usual reciever then you simply hook your laptop speaker out to any available line in of your receiver like aux, CD, DVD, video aux. but not the phono in please. you are just using the receiver as a simple amplifier for your laptop. is that what you need to know mam?

just post your comment if you have a different query. Regards/Reden

Audio out of sync

Not much information is provided but generally speaking a sync problem when playing back is not a problem with the amp but a problem with the source file, especially if you are playing a downloaded file. If you are playing a DVD this should not happen. If it is happening with a DVD, please provide further information.
Cheers, Don.

Hi, how can i hook up a wireless 5.1 headphone to a denon avr-3808 using an optical connection. I can't find any optical output port on the denon amplifier.

My manual shows two optical outputs labeled "2 (DVR)" and "3 (VCR)" at the upper right of the rear panel.

It's unclear what will appear there when playing any particular analog source.

Blu Ray with Denon-AVR 4800 can't find if it will accept 1080i

These things are really complicated to get 1080i out of.Most of the time they will only produce 720..Its just one of denons way of making you by there most exspensive.I had the same amp and the same problem.I ask a service person at Denon and all they said is the best thing I can tell you is to up grade.So I went to Onkyo and there cheapest version was more powerful and pass and converted everything to 1080.Hope this helps you and have a great day..

Denon AVr hookup advice

Hi khanfaisalv

You can use Zone2 feature that is built into this amp, then have dvd playing in one room, and cd playing in another. Both controlled separately

Page 10 of the manual tells you how to hook up the wires to Zone2

Page 30 has details of how to get it up and going.

Good luck with the rewire job, thanks for using FixYa

Avr 3300

Sounds right. Yes it is a shame because it is one of the nicest sounding home theatre receivers. Especially in good old 2 ch stereo. Which is a true test of the basic design of an amplifier. If it sounds good after you strip away all the bells and whistles, then you have a nice house on a solid foundation. Otherwise you have a nice house built on sand. ....good luck and I know the dealer can sort it out properly. ....Rob

What to use for Audio-out on Denon AVR-2807?

Hi Karmor

Use the Tape Out(rec) connections on the Denon. If that model has a rec out selector, then be sure to select phono as well. All sweet and ready to rip them files!!
