Question about Denon AVR-2803 Receiver

1 Answer

Sound cuts out

I intermittently lose sound on my AVR 2803. I have the AVR connected to a satellite dish using RCA cables and fios using hdmi cables. Sometimes the volume comes back if I change channels or input sources. the problem seems to be more prevalent when watching HD channels. The unit is not overheated and again the volume does work when the input source or channel is changed.

This sounds to me as an issue not with your AVR but with your cable unit. I have seen this where there is a sample rate issue with the cable boxes. I would try to get another cable box, and see if the issue persists.

How do I get HDMI cables to sync or talk to each other. We had this problem when we hooked up an Apple TV box to a Denon AVR-E400 and our Sony HD TV. We were told to disconnect all HDMI cables unplug


Personally I would use an RCA cable and hook up the AVR.
((RCA out of TV to AVR audio in))
((cable box HDMI cable output to TV HDMI Input1))
(As far as the AppleTv I would use a separate HDMI Input2)
If your AVR has a dvd or blue ray player Hook up a
HDMI cable out to another Input HDMI3 of the TV
using separate inputs on the tv will allow your surround system to be
used on all modes(CABLE,DVD/BLUERAY,APPLETV)

try connecting the hdmi out from cable box to your tv hdmi input, and leave the hdmi out from tv to the reciever where it is, leaving reciever selected to 'TV' and yes, a sub matters (it is not part of your problem but you need the bass a sub provides)

I have a Denon avr-3808ci. I have a Dish Network DVR and a Sony KDS-60A2020 tv. If I connect the HDMI cable on the DVR directly to the tv, I get picture and sound through the tv. If I connect the HDMI...


You are correct. I feel your pain. This will not work.

HDMI is a pure digital signal and the providers require the content coming over the Dish DVR to be COPY PROTECTED. So it will not work unless the HDMI cable goes directly from the DVR to the TV. This is to stop people from being able to make their own recordings of Dish shows, or making copies of your DVR recordings. If you really want to run things through your reciver, you're going to have to use the "component" or "composite" video feeds, not the HDMI. Sorry.

Hi, just connected a Blu Ray player to my sytem. I connected the player via HDMI direct to the TV and the audio output direct into Optical 2 on the Denon. Problem is that there is no sound. Also...


We can't make assumptions about proper and complete setup if you don't explicitly mention the steps involved, so... did you assign and select the digital inputs properly?

Page 23 etc

BTW: I concur with your decision to send the video directly to the TV from the BD even though Denon and others expect it to make a hop through the receiver first.

Get into your BD and find its audio out setup. Make sure its settings for digital audio output bit rates, speaker presence, type, size, distance and bass-handling are set correctly.

Problem when switching on Denon AVR 2803


The sound you describe is usually a mechanical noise from the transformer/case work. Home theater amps tend to have quite large transformer in what is, due mainly to its size, a rattly cabinet.

Over time, the lamination inside the transformer can loosen which could explain why it has only just started doing.

Alternatively, one assumes you moved the amp when connecting the new kit? This may have let the case work rest in a new way which is proving susceptible to relaying the vibration caused by the transformer as an audible noise on switch on.

No dish network sound through denon 1609 receiver


check the setting for the HDMI connection at the Denon you may have to assign the HDMI audio setting also on the front of the Denon while in the DVR mode press the input mode button on the front of the Denon to select auto and if that doesn;t give you sound you will have to connect a cable from the DVR optical.coaxial or analog audio output to the Denon and setup for that type of audio connection

Denon AVR 588 7.1-- Sound setup questions


This reciever does not decode the audio through HDMI, the HDMI ports are simply a pass-through. To get audio you need to connect an optical audio cable from the PS3 to the reciever also. I figured this out after 2 hours of trying to get audio from the HDMI cable. Here is a link that shows the different audio formats supported through HDMI by the different Denon models. It looks like the AVR-788 is the lowest model that supports audio through HDMI. Hope that helps.
