Question about Denon AVR688

Connecting DVD player to AV receiver

Hello Jaime867,

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 as well as surround speakers 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 and I've tried assigning both optical 1 and 2 as well as the coaxial cable inputs but again nothing. When I did a tone test all the speakers seemed to be connected correctly. Do you think I need to take the item back or am I missing something in the manual? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

    Hello Jaime,

    Thanks for the quick response. I have checked the page in question (numerous times) but I still can't understand why I'm not getting any kind of digital signal. I've tried both optical inputs as well as the coaxial ones.

    Cheers,

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.

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.

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.

Connecting two mulitchannel devices into one receiver


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 Denon receiver to DVD player


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.
