Question about Denon AVR 3808Ci Receiver

1 Answer

I have a Denon AVR-3808ci. I am having problems hooking up my nintendo 64 to this unit. I am trying to use the 3 line cable which has left/right audio (respectively red/white) and audio (yellow). I have it plugged into the vcr (in) connection. I can hear the sound but no video. I dont see anyway to choose regular video or s-video.

To add more power to your systems connect AVC500 amp AUX input to

AVR 3808C "Rec Out", or any of the audio "out" s you may want to

connect ( back of the receiver)

use RCA plug on both ends of the cable.

Hi, how can i hook up a wireless 5.1 headphone to a denon avr-3808 using an optical connection. I can't find any optical output port on the denon amplifier.


My manual shows two optical outputs labeled "2 (DVR)" and "3 (VCR)" at the upper right of the rear panel.

It's unclear what will appear there when playing any particular analog source.

Dish HD-DVR connected to a Denon 3808ci via an HDMI cable. Problem is periodically, the screen goes black for a split second and then comes back. Rewind and play again the blackout doesn't repeat. When...


Your'e losing digital data from Dish or the DVR. Since even live TV is through the DVR it is always a potential problem when anything glitches. That it doesn't repeat on immediate rewind/playback says the data made it to the hard drive ok.

The Denon is only defaulting back to an analog audio feed upon loss of the digital (preferred) one.

If it affects the video AND audio simultaneously the cause is something common to them.

I'd look at HDMI cabling into the Denon from the DVR.

Don't blame the Denon just yet.

My $.02:

I'd skip the video right past the Denon to the TV/Monitor even if it means using component cables instead of HDMI, but keep digital audio coming in from the DVR. Added cabling and connections never improve anything. Plus, HDMI cables are expensive.

It would be interesting to see if the problem comes back and affects only the audio or the video.

If you use optical cable make sure it has smooth flowing curves and no small-radius bends that would lose light power.

Digital projector is shutting down as soon as dvd


Hi make sure that in the projector menu it doesn't have an option to cancel "control" as many tv's with hdmi have the capability to receive command signals through the hdmi cable.

Also make sure that your receiver is set for hdmi signal you must designate which input you are using on the receiver and then tell it what type of signal you want it to use.

you may have just pushed a button that changed these settings somewhere along the way.

hope that helps

Playing mp3 files


if that is only a simple/usual reciever then you simply hook your laptop speaker out to any available line in of your receiver like aux, CD, DVD, video aux. but not the phono in please. you are just using the receiver as a simple amplifier for your laptop. is that what you need to know mam?

just post your comment if you have a different query. Regards/Reden

What is the right rs232 cable to connect a Denon 3808CI reciever and a Phillips RFX9600 serial extender


OK LOOKING AT THE SPECS FOR THE EXTENDER YOU DO NOT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS, WHEN USING THE SERIAL CONNECTIONS YOU NEED RS232 CODE STRINGS TO CONTROL THE DENON OR ANYOTHER DEVICE THROUGH THIS EXTENDER USING THE RS232 CONNECTIONS.
IT LOOKS LIKE YOU CONNECT AN I/R EMITTER FROM AN MINI JACK I/R CONTROL PORT ON THE BACK AND THE OTHER END TO THE I/R WINDOW ON THE DENON

Denon 3808ci won't upconvert old video game consoles


Since the games are so old and the SNES is an ancient console most tv's are made for the newer ones/Wii, Xbox, ETc./ So The Tv May Require Certain Wires for the console to function correctly, it also may be that your wires for the SNES are corroding in side *( Copper Wires Etc. )
