    Here is my problem in detail:
    Denon AVR 1508 receiver

    I just rcvd unit which I intend to set up in a large wall unit, flat screen dvd speakers etc and use as fm radio. Its going to take me a little time and as I only have a 14 day window for returns to J & R I decided just to check out the receiver-I attached both antenae
    and one speaker. Attached to red terminal on top (first left) and black terminal underneath.
    No sound receiver is set to tuner in- no stations appear to be picked up, or even static it just keeps seeking, or nothing no stereo indicator on receiver . I wonder if I have a defective unit, even if my speaker was not set up correctly which I doubt there should be some signal indication on receiver. The only other thing I can think of is there was some set up procedure I missed? Any suggestions?Also any comment on the unit, I like to listen to classical music, I have two polk towers and a subwoofer I think this will do for qxr
    I am not interested in state of art of noises moving to back speakers etc I will have two main speakers and a center speaker when I am set up fully

    I have the cable connected to the Denon AVR 1508. But I am not seeing any signal indicator on the receiver. This to me is the primary indicator. i also hear no sound or static. The screen of the receive says EXT.In Tuner. Above this is the word Zone2. To the right is the number 10. Again no sign of any input. I only have 1 speaker connected for simplicity.

First, don't use a cable for your antenna, the cable companies have stoped sending FM for a long time now. use a paper clip to the center pin hole of the FM antenna.
second, shut zone 2 off with the front button.
third, shut off EXT with the EXT IN button, this is for an external input source such as a DTS decoder box.
fourth select only speaker A and not both some require you to have a load on both speakers or else it will be mute. so choose only speaker A

How do i connect sonos " control " to denon avr 300. Where are audio output on this denon?


The AVR-E300 doesn't have an audio output. It's a very basic AV receiver built down to a price.

Even if you has a better quality receiver, you still would only be able to port sound from analogue sources (ones connected via red & white RCA/phono) to the Sonos Connect for distribution around the rest of your home. AV receivers don't decode audio from HDMI sources to analogue stereo.

If you want to port sound, hook up a source direct to the Sonos Connect's audio input. Don't try going via the receiver.

No picture with cable to denon AVR-589


Long and painful answer!!! However, in the end, you need to bypass HDMI thru your receiver and go direct to the TV. Connect Digital Coaxial or Optical for audio to your receiver. Your version of HDMI in your receiver is not compatable with today's HDMI version. Yours is 1.1a and the current version is 1.3b going to 1.4. If you want detailed info as to "why", just google "HDMI 1.1 problems" you can read for hours! Sorry for the bad news! However, it is what it is. Hope this helps. If you need further help with setup, post a comment and I can give you further help.

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.
