Hi I am trying to get this reciever to work connected via digtial optical cable to my PC, my sound card shows that it is working becuase when i play a song i can see the levels rising and lowering in the...


I imagine if you disconnected the optical audio cable you would still see sound settings varying on the PC, so it proves nothing.

You need to make sure the Sound Card Digital Output is at a correct sampling rate. Find its digital settings and try 44.1khz, PCM. Experiment wit hall settings.

Rear speakers do not work


Make sure of what audio mode you've set your receiver to, as well as what the source audio signal contains.

Some modes, such as Dolby Digital/Pro Logic will adopt the input format, and subsequently use only the front left and right speakers if there are no LFE/Center/Surround channels present. Setting the mode to Pro Logic II or IIx, on the other hand, will force a signal to be spread out to the various extra channels.

Using the Automatic Field Detect mode will usually provide the most appropriate solution for the input signal, otherwise.


Also note that if your audio source is from a PC and you are playing games, some games will, when you are using the digital output of many sound cards (most notably the Sound Blaster Live! and Audigy 1-2 and Audigy SE model cards) output only stereo as their signal, but still in a digital format. Your receiver will pick this up as a stereo specific signal and avoid using the subwoofer, center and surround channels.

Unfortunately, for those cards, there is no work-around beyond using analogue output or getting a more recent, better compatability sound card, as it is a limitation between the drivers, the card and the game in question, rather than your receiver that has the issue.

If the above doesn't help alleviate your issue and/or you could clarify on what your source audio is and whether you encounter this issue with all source-types or not, please post a follow up response.

How to install soundcard in my laptop?


There are some cards that you can put in your lap top but maybe a little bit expensive.The easiest way is to buy some sound cards with USB or Firewire connection but they are external sound cards with high quality that your lap top sound cards. If you mean install driver, then you have to look to your sound card manufacture to find the driver on their web site.
Regards.

Connecting pc audio to str-de898


You're close. PHONO is NEVER the place to send Line Level signals. It is for the small output produced by a phono cartridge only. Google RIAA equalization to see why it sounds so bad when connected that way.

That you get sound through Phono at least proves your PC is producing an output. Now we have to figure out why your RECEIVER doesn't sense the program where it should be connected.

If you have another analog audio source that works on the receiver, temporarily connect the PC audio there to see how it sounds. Then think about why it doesn't work in MD/TAPE, SA-CD/CD, TV/SAT, DVD, or either Video IN. Any of those should work.

System has power and cd's spin but no sound coming from the speakers. checked all connections and tried speakers with a different system they work fine. Please advise, Frank


First, check volume levels in mixer, both output volume and cd input volumes...Go to control panel>sound and audio devices>hardware and check to see that your sound card and drivers are working properly. Use troubleshooter if devices are disabled or not working properly. Make sure advanced settings for sound are correct for your speaker type....

Audio does not work on my notebook


you will have to go to the website to download drivers for your audio card. If you are running Windows they may have audio drivers. Go to website of the makers of your computer for drivers. Check the volume first. If this doesn't work then consider a new sound card and install it.

I HAVE NO SOUND ON MY GATEWAY GT5660E. i HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING


Do you have the speakers plugged into the correct plugs in the sound card? Make sure speakers are not plugged into the mike jack. Do you hear any static as you remove and replug the jacks? Do the speakers have a power light?

Open Control Panel ->Sounds and click on Sounds tab. Do any sounds play? Click on the Audio tab and make sure Default device is your sound card. Click on Volume tab and then Advanced. Make sure nothing is muted.

Assuming you have Windows, check the sound card in Control Panel->System, Hardware, Device Manager. Check for correct drivers. If necessary, uninstall sound card and let Windows detect it again and install drivers.

When I try to play an audio file on my computer, it says that it seems that no sound device is installed or working on my computer. What's a sound device and how can I solve this problem ?


a sound device is a dedicated board the fits in a free PCI slot(inside the PC) and produces all of the sounds once connected to a set of speakers, hifi unit,some newer PC's come with built in sound cards

not all cards are the same quality some are standard stereo and some are full theatre quality(dolby,THX etc)
so its wise to find a solution for your needs as many aspects of newer cards may never be needed

maybe you have a sound card in your system and have not yet installed drivers if you right click on my computer(on desktop) and use the properties in the menu,you will see a new box ,goto the HARDWARE tab and then the DEVICE MANAGER tab
click the + next to sound,video,gamecontrollers

if u see any mention of an audio device right clickit and select UPDATE DRIVER

but remember a sound card must be connected to speakers or a hifi unit to produce the sound

Pc to denon av 2802


You can use an auxiliary input on your Denon. What type of connection is available on the sound card? Some models have toslink while most have the mini-jacks which will require an adapter (mini-jack to RCA) which you can connect to the AUX input on your Denon. On the computer, make sure the LINE-OUT of the sound card is activated.
