Question about Denon AVR-4308CI Receiver

1 Answer

Denon 4308 Hi I have the Denon 4308 connected vis HDMI 1.3 Cables to my Denon Dvd 1740 DVD player and another HDMI cable connected to my Sony PS-3 . I have connected the 4308 to my Pioneer 508 Plasma television from the 4308's monitor out 1 HDMI connector . I am not using the 4308 to power or drive any other zone in the house . Finally i have connected the 4308 to B&W 683 ( bi-amped with the 4308 as the front ) the LCR 61 for the centre and the 685 for the rears as a 5 channel setup . My problem is that while everything is working great , i.e - the sound is output to the speakers absolutely correctly - As Long as my Pioneer Plasma Tv is also turned on . The moment i turn off my Plasma TV the sound goes off . So lets say i just want to listen to a CD via my Denon dvd player - do i have to keep the TV on ??? Also when i switch to listening to the FM tuner which is inbuilt into the 4308 it works as long as the Plasma monitor is on the moment i switch that off the radio sound starts going on and off . What am i doing wrong ? Basically all i want to do is that in case i want to listen to a CD or the tuner i dont want to have to turn on my Pioneer Plasma . Thanks in advance . Regards - Vishal.

Ok sounds simple you ran the lines threw the tv instead all lines should be ran threw the sterio

see once you turn tv off this cuts the outputs out so now no sound will happen
your sterio should be equipted to take inputs of tv
you want everything to be inputed threw receiver thats why they call it a receiver the outputs on tv goto inputs on receiver
you need to redo your wireing so that this which i described is correct again

hi,
You have to check the digital audio assignment of you AVR for HDMI 1 and HDMI 2. There is three options for the digital audio for HDMI 1 and HDMI 2. You can set it as optical ,coaxil, or the HDMI itself. In you receiver the assignment may be in optical input or in coaxial input for the two HDMI inputs.

1. Go to the system setup
2. Select input setup
3.Select input assignment.
4. Select all the three input ,you are using as HDMI

ok

I want to connect my denon 790 to my 5:1 surround, HDMI DVD player and HD samsung 55'' LCD. what cables do i need and where to put them. thanks


You will need 1 HDMI cable to link between your DVD player and the Denon,plug the HDMI cord into the HDMI port on the back of your DVD player and the the other end into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled DVD,then you will need another HDMI cord to go between the Denon and your LCD TV,plug one end of the HDMI cord into the Denon 790 HDMI port labeled HDMI monitor out and the other end into one of the HDMI ports on the back of your TV, it doesn't matter which one you use, just remember that you will have to change the input on the tv to that specific HDMI port when you play back a DVD and you will also have to change the Denon to DVD as your source to send the audio through the Denon to your surround sound speakers.( The Denon owners manual will help!!)

HDMI connection???


Hi Greg,
Again, if you have a high definition dish box with HDMI output,and a dvd player with HDMI output,please connect them both directly to your TV HDMI inputs.
When watching TV(dishnetwork box).remember to switch the HDMI video inputs.
Same as your DVD player,you need to switch it under your TV video input.

No HDMI video output from AVR-588 receiver to plasma TV ???


the avr-588 apparently cannot carry sound via hdmi - don't know why; just what i found out from the geek squad at best buy; solved the problem by connecting optical cable from cable box to receiver; be sure to change the input on the receiver for opt-2 (system setup >2 inputs) to correlate with tv

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.

Help with audio sound


Had the same problem - have a 3-yr old Sony DVD without hdmi - used RGB for video (hooked it up directly to tv) and optical cable for audio (connected to OPT-2 in receiver) and problem solved. the standard red/wht audio cables also worked.
