Connecting Denon receiver to DVD player

Hello Abrsvcs,

I've been trying to connect my DVD player to my new Denon receiver (AVR-687) through a digital cable for a couple of weeks now. The audio works fine through RCA cables but when I try to use a digital cable - nothing. Until today I only had two front speakers but today I got a center channel speaker and next week I'm picking up a sub. Again today I tried the optical cable and no sound. I have the input setting on Auto - do I need all 5 speakers and the sub attached for the receiver to recognize a digital signal? I've trying assigning both optical 1 and 2 as well as the coaxial cable inputs but again nothing. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Ray

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.

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!

I have a Denon AVR 1707 reciever. I am trying to connect my dvd player through RGB cables. The sound works just fine when i turn the reciever to dvd but there is no video. I have the component 2 set to dvd...


The video cables--the green, blue, and red ones must be connected from the video OUT portion of the DVD player to the Component 2 video IN of the Denon. It could be the handshake between your Denon and your television. Do you have anything else to connect to the Denon to see if you get a picture? How are you connecting the Denon to the television? Make sure you have your television on the proper input and check the cables going between it and the Denon.

I have a Denon AVR2307 to which is connected,via optical audio and component video a DVD player/recorder and this works well but in order to take some of the work off the player part I've bought another...


HDMI signal from DVD can not be down converted to analog component signal.
Connect your new DVD to a component input 1..4. Make sure that component input assigned to desired input (dvd/vcr/sat/) (setup - input setup - input - component assign - component x etc). Connect coax output of DVD to coax x input of the receiver and assign it (setup- input setup - "input" - digital assign ..). Probably you need to setup DVD output resolution to 720i or 720p in dvd setup menu.

I guess you could try y cable adapters for input on the Denon. Might get messy. Try radio shack and pick up 5 y cables for the speakers and 1 for the sub. Someone probably makes an audio switcher that handles that as well.

Denon AVR-1705 Missing Video Functions?


Hello,

What you need to do is connect all your devices to the Denon Using the best connections (Yellow Video=OK, S-Video=good, Component green-red-blue=better and HDMI=best. if you do not have a DVD that upconverts to 1080i or p when using HDMI, I would use component cables where available from your devices to the Denon other wise use the next best connection available and if connecting digital audio make a chart of all connection so you can setup everything when your ready for programming the Denon

Connecting DVD player to AV receiver


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.
