It would appear that your receiver, from pictures I looked at, has 4 HDMI in and 1 HDMI out. Looking at the specs of the tv, it has 4 HDMI in. I'm guessing that you have your receiver set up with speakers and sometimes you'd rather listen to tv speakers? I didn't download a manual however, usually to get sound from tv speakers you may have to turn off av's speakers or, there may be a way to bypass. If you could give me more info on hookup and what you want to do I could probably be of more assistance.

I have a denon avr-1611 and can get sound playback through my connected speakers (not tv speakers) but no video output from hdmi. I have the receiver connected to a samsung tv. Is there any fix for th


You should check your Denon manual to be sure that the receiver has been set up correctly. My 1913 has many set up options including associating a particular HDMI out connection with a particular source like CBL/SAT or DVD. The fact that you hear sound indicates the HDMI cable connecting the cable box or DVD player to the receiver is working ( at least the sound portion of the HDMI in cable.)

Next, is the HDMI connection you are using to the TV the one selected in the source listing on the TV ? The sound and video circuitry on a receiver are separated and you can hear sound but see no video if the TV isn't selecting the correct source. For example if the TV is set to HDMI1 but you are plugged into HDMI 2. If this doesn't solve your problem try this:

At this point you don't know if the problem is the receiver HDMI connections or TV HDMI connections or a bad HDMI cable. The first thing to try is a new HDMI Cable. If that doesn't solve the problem then do the following.

If the TV has more than one HDMI connection try another HDMI port. Be sure to switch the source on the TV to the new HDMI port ie. HDMI1,HDMI2 or whatever.

If this fixes the problem you are done. If not then Try the same thing with the HDMI out ports on the receiver. Try each one not forgetting to set the receiver to use the HDMI port you are testing.
each time.

Since this can get confusing I would write down what you are testing each time so you don't get lost or confused.

If none of this works then you can try hooking up another TV to the HDMI cable, if you have one. If you do this and you still have a problem it points to the receiver as being the culprit.

The most likely problem is you have misconfigured the system so that is where I started. Each test is dependent on the fact that your system is correctly configured to begin with.

Can't get the tv sound to come through the surround receiver


This question does beg for more details. For instance, some HDTVs have an optical out which can be hooked into the Denon. This works great when the unit doesn't have HDMI I/O. I have one such Denon unit [1312] which I bought for that exact purpose. It's all I could afford, and it works. You do have to have the rcvr set on TV or whatever the optical in goes to.
Or, some people have a newer Denon and setup their RCVR to switch and only one TV input from the RCVR. then it's the cable box connection you need to check/switch to. it's not simple, but it's not that hard either. I you need more help you can PM me.

you have to connect the tv tuner directly to the coax cable coming in. The receiver will not tune tv channels. You can then connect the tv to the receiver via optical cable

avatar7.jpgcurt, I bought this Denon AVR 1611 and I have HD cable. If you have cable you can set it up two ways. First way (the way I have it) is to get a switch box with 2 HDMI
out (mine has 4 inputs and 2 outputs) and maybe 2-4 inputs. Put the cable from the wall in one of the switch box inputs. Now hears the cool thing. Put 1 of the outputs from the switch box to the Sat/Cable input on the 1611 then put the another output to your tvs HDMI input. This allows you to switch from the tv only output or the 1611 surround output without touching the switch box. The other way is to buy a converter from HDMI to VGA. The only thing here is that you would have to setup your sound through Aux in the front of the 1611..........Johnmoondancer@hotmail.com

I am not able to get audio through my HDMI cables.


It's a monitor - no audio source capabilities.

Get TV-related audio from its original source, not the TV or monitor. TV's and monitors are NOT hi-end audio sources.

Cable box, DVD, BD, games: these are potential hi-fi digital audio sources.

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 to the 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

Denon AVR1602


I know the avr 1602 well....What exactly do you mean "I have my TV cable service wired to the Denon".....Do you mean the actual co-ax cable ?....

The denon is only able to switch raw video and audio signals.

What do I mean by that ?....IF you are running your co-ax cable from your cable company directly into the back of the denon, it won't work. The Denon has an AM-FM tuner, but not a video tuner ( channels 1-121)....If this is what you are doing, then you want to run it to your samsung first ( as long as the samsung has a tuner so you can change channels ).

If the samsung operates like an old VCR, whereby you can plug the cable company co-ax cable into the back of it, and change channels with the samsung, then that is what you must do. You would then hook up the OUTPUTS of the samsing to the VCR or DVD inputs on the Denon receiver. ( use DVD inputs on the denon if the samsung has optical audio out, and use an optical cable as well for better sound ).

You would then use the Denon for the sound, and hook up your TV to the Monitor out jack on the back of the Denon.

The Denon is like a big switchbox. You plug your DVD, VCR, Satellite, video game, or what-have-you into the Denon. Then you use the denon to route the signal to your TV for the picture, and the denon takes care of the sound.

Hope this helps, and remember to always follow your owners manual.......Rob
