Question about Denon AVR-3802 Receiver

1 Answer

Multi-zone volume levels --not adjustable (too high!)

Thanks. I do have the setting on "Multi" for the correct zone, and on "Variable" for the volume option. The problem is, how to adjust the volume from this setting. The volume buttons have no effect from this set-up point(obviously, the first thing I tried).
Again, this is all the manual states at this page: "The level can be adjusted freely using the buttons on the remote control unit."

    Thanks, yes this is in fact the solution. I found it 2 weeks ago when I emailed Denon from its "contact" on their website. "Ean" their tech, was very helpful. We walked through the manual (I had told him to call me since it was more efficient than emails). On p. 47 is the answer. Note: There is no cross-reference between p. 26 where it states "volume can be adjusted..." and p. 47 where it states in passing the use of "Multi" to do this, and the lack of an index adds frustration.



    Thanks again.

I cant get zone 2 to work on my yamaha rx v673. They are 2 outdoor speakers.. please help


I had a similar problem where I could not increase zone 2 volume - Page 100 in the manual notes that 'power amp assign' must be set to "7 Ch + 1 zone" before zone 2 max volume can be changed. Try that.

I am trying to get audio to play through zone 2. I have a CD player connected to AV 5 input on the receiver. When I switch to zone two, I am able to select a source, AV 5, when I attempt to turn the volume...


* Get to the receiver setup menu by pressing the "On Screen" button on the receiver's remote control. * Navigate the menu to "Setup". * Then scroll horizontally to "Multi Zone". * Select "Zone2 Set".
** If the menu items are grayed out here (if not skip below) ** * Go back to the horizontal menu (where you selected "Multi Zone" * Scroll to the "Speakers" option * Make sure the "Power Amp Assign" setting is correct (allowing for multi-zone).
*** In Zone2 Set *** * Change the range, default volume, and increments as desired.
I hope this helps! Mike

When I try to turn up zone 2 the display reads fix. Is there a short or an ohms problem?


Look on page 99 of the manual. It's a parameter you have an option to change to Variable. Fix lets Zone 2 or 3 have a Fixed volume level independent of the volume control on the Yamaha. Variable makes them dependent on the control.

Subwoofer amplifier


Here's how I'd do it... connect the subwoofer pre-out to one of the unused analog inputs (CD or CD-R perhaps?). Turn on Zone 2 by pressing the MULTI-ZONE ON/OFF button. The MULTI-ZONE indicator will light.

Press CONTROL. (Zone 2 should display) Use the INPUT SELECTOR dial to select the source for the zone you have selected. In my example, CD or CD-R.

Of course, you'll need the sub hooked up to the Surround back speaker terminals.

Here's a link to the manual online:
Pioneer VSX-1018 Manual

Things to keep in mind:
The Surround Back setting must be set to ZONE 2. See page 41 of the manual.
The volume level going to the sub will probably need some tweaking. Check out page 7 to see how to manually adjust volume levels, or get it close by adjusting the Master Volume while in Zone 2 control.

I'm not sure if the auto setup function (with the included microphone) will work properly with this setup. And, of course, this is not a "suggested" setup by Pioneer, so please use caution when hooking everything up.

Good luck!

Denon AVR-4802 multi-zone problem.


I had the same questions and still can't believe there isn't more information on the topic. It's crazy how much marketing Denon devotes to their Multi-Zone features yet offers very little reference materials on the actual set up. I guess most customers don't use the fearture? Here you go:

-The Multi-Zone on the Denon 4802 is analog only. If you are running digital coax or fiber you will have to run a second line that's analog (eg RCA red/white) from the source to the Denon in order for the signal to to make it to the Zone 2 speakers (regardless if it's Pre-Amp out or direct connect to the Zone 2 speakers from the multi/SB speaker outs. Regarding the Harmony question, I had the same problem with my Harmony 880 and wasn't able to find an answer after multiple searches. Luckily I figured it out when I deleted the receiver from the Logitec device list and started over. Connect the remote to your computer, launch the Logitec Harmony Remote Software, click the Devices tab, hit the Add Device, pick the device type & manufacturer from the drop down list, enter "AVR-4802" under Model and finally hit the Next button in the lower right corner of the UI. The next page solves the Harmony Zone 2 control problem. You will see a message "To use your device in additional zones/rooms, click the checkbox...." Make sure Room 2 is checked (mine was not), update the remote and you're done. The Harmony Device menu you will now contain a second receiver icon called "receiver 2." Hit "device" on the Harmony, choose "receiver 2" and you will gain control over Zone 2 including volume.

Good luck!

Denon AVR-4802R automatically shuts off in multi-zone mode


i had the volume of the multi-zone tuned too high and was attenuating it in an external control box. Once i took the multi-zone volume down to -25db, the problem went way. My main zone was operating around -35db so did not have the problem.

Multi Room / Multi zone problems


As you may see from my posted response to a posting that correctly ID'd the solution, the answer to your problem is found on p. 47 of the manual (regarding how to adjust the multi volume levels as stated on p. 26).

Volume control doesn't work on the enternal speaker


On some sets that have audio output jacks, the level of the audio output on the RCA jacks is fixed, and it does not change with the TV's volume control. On some sets, such as Sony, you can choose fixed or variable output. I have also seen some sets that have both fixed and variable RCA jacks on the back. With variable audio out, the audio level at the audio output jacks follows the TV's volume control. If you go into the TV's menu and navigate to the audio page, look for fixed or variable output options. If you have the owner's manual, read the section on audio output. If variable output is not an option on your model, then the level is constant and the volume will have to be adjusted with the stereo's volume control.
