Normally the optical inputs are disabled unless specifically turned on. I dono't know your specific model. I'll research the model and update this with more specifics.

If you've done that already and still no response from your system, I would suggest to take back to the place where you bought it and ask them to check it for you. Tell them that you follow the user's manual to the "T" but still unable to make it work.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: denon 3801.cant display setup on tv

Hello gerrydav, What might be happenening is the refresh rate for your blu-ray is offsync for your preferred display. You should be able to change it by plugging it into another TV and playing around with the settings. If you have further problems please feel free to post again.
Please post what you do and how you did it. I look forward to your posts.

SOURCE: No sound from optical or coax digital inputs

You have to use the system setting using the remote and turn on the inputs you want to use. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: RE: Denon AVR 3300 - I cannot get the system setup menu to display on Phillips P50PFP5332D tv screen? All connected components work and sound great, but I cannot see Denon's Setup menu on tv to a

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!

In your DVD player audio setup change the digital output to bitstream. You have not mentioned which DVD player you are using.

Some players it will be given
Digital Out - Off/ On select On

How to connect a panasonic tcp50gt25 tv audio out (opictal) to a pioneer amp.with opitcal. i connect the cable but no sound,any idea for setting,i did the setting for optical on the amp but still no sound


What is the source? if you are using an HDMI connection from an HD source you should have digital audio. also, if you are connecting digital cable directly to the TV it will send digital audio out as well. check the optical cable at the amp end to see if it is working. it should glow red at the tip if it is.
there are digital input mode settings as well on some receivers. if it is set to DTS it won't work on PCM audio. if it is set to auto Digital it should work on any standard. check the PCM or DTS options in both the TV, and receiver if those settings are there.

Set the receiver for auto audio input - I think that you are getting caught out between MPEG and DTS audio. If you have the wrong one for the audio source then you hear nothing.

I have some Denon components myself and had some problems. Ask them here, and within a day you should have solution for this problem.

Probably you have to reset the device to factory settings.

Denon AVR-1403 receiver switched from digital to analogue.


There are three modes (Auto, DTM, and PCM) on the input mode switch, on the main unit, selected by repeatedly pressing the input mode switch.

However, if you have already depressed the Analog button in, on the main unit you have predetermined the mode as analog.

On the remote, the INPUT MODE switch combines toggles for 5 choices, [Auto, PCM, DTS, Analog,
Ext. input]


My guess is that either the input mode switch on the main unit and/or the remote are toggled to analog.

Denon AVR587 Setup


red/white/yellow = composite
red/green/blue= component video cables + audio cables needed

the red/white= stereo audio

the denon 587 has 2 optical (toslink) inputs and 2 digital coax. These are surround sound cables basically, it's the only way to get true 5.1 dolby or dts.

connect cable box, and the samsung to the sony using hdmi. then connect the cable box and the samsung to the denon receiver with optical cable. And that's it.

Audio problem when connecting to a PS3


It seems the Denon and PS3 don't play nice together on DTS. If you take off the DTS setting, then the PS3 will use DD and you'll get surround for games and movies.
