No sound other than from direct stereo or pure direct. Denon AVR 2808
Hi, when I was waching TV using Denon AVR-2808 the sound went off. Decided to to check if the TV was in mute mode. still no sound. After that i restarted the AVR, now there is no sound or video. The only way i can have sound is trough direct stereo or pure direct. Still no video. have unplugged all input cables and connected only one Video RCA and configured only analog inputs. nothing. Even the radio can only play pure direct. If i try to select dolby or 7.1 silence. All the visible fuses look ok.

Re: No sound other than from direct stereo or pure...
You can try this reset precedure below, but it sounds like you may have a DSP board problem. This is a new model of Denon, it should still be under Denon's warranrty, it has a 2 year warranty. If this does not help, you need to take it in to be serviced. If it is not under warranty, you will not like the cost of the repair. A new DSP board usualy cost about $300 and then you must pay for the labor. It is not cheap. This reset procedure has been know to work some minor miracles, lets hope it works one for you.
1. Switch off the unit.
2. Hold the following STANDARD button and DSP SIMULATION
button, and switch on the unit.
3. Check that the entire display is flashing with an interval of
about 1 second, and release your fingers from the 2 buttons
and the microprocessor will be initialized.
Note:If step 3 does not work, start over from step 1.
All user settings will be lost and this factory setting
will be recovered when this initialization mode.
So make sure to memorize your setting for restoring
after the initialization.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

From Denon support:
To reboot, turn receiver off using the small on/off button, not the big standby button. While off press the night and pure direct button at the same time and keep holding them with your right hand while pressing the small on/off button with your left. You will see your receiver menu flash. When you see it flash let go of the night and pure direct button and the receiver will reset it self to the radio station 87.50. The receiver's microprocessor has now been set back to factory default.
if you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver, AVR-3300 ** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV
** to "AUX input "
or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input" ** than just switch to
respective mode on AVR-3300 RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection... There you go..Your TV sound is on the AVR-3300 Receiver..By this means whatever you watch on the TV (tuner, satellite , Xbox ) ,it's sound will come thru your stereo..
Hope this helps!

'Night' compresses the audio's dynamic range to make soft sounds more audible and loud sounds less loud for a given volume setting. The assumption being that there are people sleeping while you're listening or there's so much environmental background noise that you won't hear the soft sounds. It sort of defeats the whole reason for having HIGH fidelity sound. Ditto for D.Comp.
'Pure' bypasses all internal analog processing (page 25). Why? Who can say? Other than to diagnose a problem. If the tone controls are contributing to the sound they don't belong in a Denon product to begin with. The implication is that to NOT use Pure or Direct is to inflict audible limitations on the sound. And you may lose control of the sub, too. Oh goody.

Try unplugging your HDMI cable from the AVR I would like to see if your AVR is trying to use HDMI out instead of the composite. Next try plugging each device directly into your television, this will isolate the issue and tell us for sure whether or not it's the AVR.
