    I need a solution to switch from analoge to digital input for my Denon AVR 3803. I use my amp as a 2 channel amp. And I want to be able to use the da in the amp from the CD both as analoge with two RCA and with a coaxial digital input. Is there a solution to use a mini laptop without S-video or hdmi input. Or is there a way on the receiver to switch without any monitor.

    Thanks for any help regarding this

    My main problem is how " the receiver is set to use the digital coaxial input on the corresponding input chosen "

    How do I do this without using a TV screen ?

Ok, for the digital coaxial input, that is for receiving dolby digital audio. So you would output from whatever device you are using that has a digital coaxial to your receiver, then just make sure the device is outputting through the digital coaxial output and the receiver is set to use the digital coaxial input on the corresponding input chosen. Also I am not sure why you would need to connect a pc monitor to it, You wouldn't want to output to a pc monitor and you can't to a laptop. You could output the laptop to it but that again would be an unnecessary step as you would output from the laptop straight to the tv. If you need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

    Refer to p.16 of the manual located at this link:
    http://usa.denon.com/AVR3803_ownersmanua...
    You may need the on screen display to change some settings if so just plug in the monitor out to the tv.
    Thank you and enjoy,

The coaxil is for an anteanne like a tv. It is an input meaning from a device like an anteannae to the receiver. The video jacks can be used on a tv or vcr.

    If both the receiver and laptop have s-video, you could go that way. Otherwise at amazon . com they sell an s-video to rca converter cable for about $3-4

  • laronos Sep 16, 2010

    hallo fisherman, Do You think a s-video to VGA may work ? And is there such converter cable to buy out there ? S-video to Denon and VGA to mini laptop

    There are video and audio inputs to hook devices up to the receiver. Then there should also be audio and video outputs. Usually rca jacks to hook the receiver up to a tv or vcr.

How can I connect my I pod Touch to my Denon AVR 1803 receiver?


The best way to connect an older IPod or other MP3 player to the AVR-1803 is to use a 3.5 mm (M) to RCA audio cable. This will work for audio on all IPods (and video on some of the older IPods). Here's an example: http://www.amazon.com/3-5mm-Audio-Video-Cable-iPod/dp/B000STBSU4 . Connect the 3.5 mm end to the headphone jack; the RCA plugs go into one of the AVR-1803 RCA inputs.

For some IPods, try a connector like this: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Unlimited-iPod-Connector-Cable/dp/B000CBFVXS . This connects to the docking port on the IPod.

I hope this helps.

How can I connect my I pod Touch to my Denon AVR 1803 reveiver?


Connect the 3.5mm cable to the iPod headphone output and the two RCA plugs into any unused analogue audio input on the Denon AVR 1803. Then choose the appropriate input on the Denon, press play and enjoy the music. Be careful about volume. Start with the volume on the iPad low and adjust to suit.
Cheers, Don.

How do I set my receiver to read TV/CBL Dolby Digital. It is a AVR 789


The Dolby digital signal is outputted only through the Optical or Coaxial socket of the CBL box. you will have to get an optic fiber or coaxial cable depending which cable box you have and connect it to the digital input of the Denon receiver. The Denon's digital input are already assigned at the back. Eg: Optic input might be labeled CD so if you are connecting the CBL box to the optic input remember to select CD on the Denon to hear the cable sound, same goes with the coaxial input.

I have a Denon 1803 AV and the remote is not functioning. Most things can be done directly from the AMP but I have not been able to switch from my Coaxial for the DVD to the Optical for my media player. ...


Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

---

The switching problem: If you mean you wish to change digital input assignment there is no way to do that without the remote. You COULD view the matrix on page 19 of the manual and possibly move your optical device to the default "optical 3" if it hasn't changed. Then you could select "CDR/TAPE3" to hear that attached device.

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.

I have a Denon 2800 hooked up to a Pioneer DV-C302D and while DVD's thru the Denon, the sound will come on and off. At the same time the Denon will be switching between analog and digital mode. Is one of...


It's a cable or connection.

The Denon apparently has an automatic selector to choose the digital input over the analog input if both are present (my Pioneer does this). The random switching is telling you the digital input is intermittently dropping out and coming back. You don't say if you're using the optical or coaxial digital interface. Coaxial is less prone to connection problems. If you use optical, make sure the ends are clicked in and there are no small radius bends in the cable. Tight curves reduce the optical power. Either way, check the connections and wiggle them to see if you can cause the problem to return.

Hi with my denon avr 1908 can i run video through HDMI cable and sound trough Coaxial cable so i can get 5.1 surround from my sky HD box


you can get 5.1 using HDMI connection.
other wise in the set up you can configure the denon to not use the hdmi audio and configure that input to use coaxial or optical all digital inputs allow for 5.1 once all connections are made on the front of the unit find the input mode button and select auto

Connecting new tv to DRA-685


you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).
