It sounds like your TV is responding to the Denon remote. There may not be any way to stop it. I would just turn off the TV speakers and use the ones connected to the receiver. If you're using the TV speakers to make up for the lack of a center channel speaker on your receiver, it may be time to consider buying a good center channel speaker. The speakers provided in most modern flat panel TV's aren't very robust. The whole idea of having a receiver is to:
1. allow switching between various sources while using only one HDMI cable to connect to the TV.
2. Take advantage of surround sound in the 5.1, 7.1 channel mode receivers provide. When you have a good receiver connected to quality speakers and a good subwoofer you can really experience the music and sounds in a home theater environment.
HDMI input connect as follows: 1.Connect an HDMI cable from the Cable box to the TV/CBL HDMI input on the Denon. 2.Connect an HDMI cable from the Xbox to the DVD/HDP input on the Denon. 3.Connect an HDMI cable from the HDMI out-put on the Denon to an input on the Samsung. You don’t have to use the optical output from these to devices since the HDMI cable allows for the transfer of both audio and video, if you have them extra use them in addition tothe HDMI cable and last, 4.On front of denon after you setup and assign your optical connections, if you use them, once you select TV/CBL or DVD/HDP as a source, press the input mode button to select auto
There are two ways to get change the speaker config that I didn't see at first. One is the curved-line 'Speaker Menu Guide') button on the front of the remote below the wheel that toggles A, B, A+B. The other factor is to choose a Surround Parameter that doesn't send all the audio through the center channel - (keep pressing SIMU button on the back of the remote to cycle through some DSP profiles, I'm using the 5Ch Stereo).
I have repaired many of these Denon receivers over the last few years.
Since the headphones work, that means if you dis-connect the speakers it will turn on and not go into protect (when power cuts off a few seconds after turning the unit on).
The most likely problem is a bad speaker. to find out which speaker is causing the problem, do this.
Start out with just one speaker connected and then turn on the unit. If it turns on and plays music, you know that speaker is good. Now turn the unit off again and add another speaker and keep the first speaker connected. Once again, if the unit plays, that speaker is also good.
Keep doing this same procedure one speaker at a time. As soon as you connect a speaker and then try to turn on the unit and it goes into protect, the speaker you just connected is bad.
To confirm that this speaker is the bad speaker, dis-connect all speakers and only plug the suspected bad speaker into a speaker jack that worked with one of the other speakers. If the unit still goes into protect you know then that you have found the bad speaker.
If the unit still goes into protect, that speaker is bad and you will need to take it in for repair or replace it. make sure you use 8 ohm speakers. if i remember correctly these Denons can use 6 ohm speakers, but those are harder to find and most home speakers are 8 ohms.
If the unit does not go into protect and that suspected bad speaker plays in one of the other speaker jacks, what you really have is a bad channel in the amplifier, the channel that the suspected bad speaker was previously connected to.
If you find out you have a bad channel, you will need to take it in to an repair center. Preferably an authorized Denon service center. There are not very many of those around. I work at the only authorized Denon service center in the entire state of Michigan.
If I can be of more assistance, don't hesitate to ask. And a good rating is always appreciated. :)
If your tv is putting out mono you will only get the center and sub speakers. This can be because the tv is only mono, or the output is set to mono in a menu of the tv. If you have cable or sat run the digital audio out to you receiver; it usually sound better that way anyhow. Set your receiver to Dolby mode for best sound.
