Denon AVR-2802 Optical Issue

Hi I have just bought a Denon AV 2802 receiver to help with running a surround sound system. The unit has 2 optical inputs on it but i can only seem to run one of them. I cannot find out how to select individual optical inputs. Can i run one of my devices via phono as well as optical?

If you look at page 16 of the user manual it tells you how to assign the devices to the optical connections. Once this is done it should work.
If you don't have the manual just type "denon avr 2802 manual" into Google and it will show a free PDF file of it. On my search it came up first!

SOURCE: Connecting DVD player to AV receiver

If you've done that already and still no response from your system, I would suggest to take back to the place where you bought it and ask them to check it for you. Tell them that you follow the user's manual to the "T" but still unable to make it work.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: Denon AVR 2800 digital hookup to PS3

If your TV has an HDMI input, hook up the PS3 w/an HDMI cable to the TV. This will give you a high def picture (set up the PS3 to output the max resolution your TV displays). That will take care of the video side.

Next hook up an optical cable from the PS3 to the receiver. In the PS3 menu, you have to change the audio settings to output the sound via the optical cable.

Finally to get sound out of the receiver to the speakers, you have to setup the receiver source input. For example if you setup the PS3 to play thru "VCR" input, then you have to make sure the VCR input is setup to use either optical 1 or optical 2 for sound (whichever one you have the optical cable plugged in from the PS3).

  • I found this solution on a different site... it worked for me. I needed to change the sound settings in my ps3 to optical... then i selected dolby 5.1.... that took care of my sound.

SOURCE: no sound fom optical input

Do you have your TV hooked up, so you can see the AVR-4800 system menu on its screen (if not, see the manual). You need to go down to the digital input menu item where you associate each component with its input source, whether it is coax, optical 1, optical 2, ..., etc.

SOURCE: Technical Problem on my Denon AVR 2802

How good are you with electronic repairs...? Do it if only you are confident...

The way you describe you problem it seems more like poor solder connections somewhere on the board. Usually these are at the voltage regulators where there can be some heat. Also, look for any connections that appear to be grasiny or have rings and resolder them too.

Alternatively, suggest that you take it to the Denon service center closest to you.

Best of Luck..

SOURCE: Have put an optical cable from optical digital out

You need to do digital input assignment. Go to SETUP, DIGITAL INPUT ASSIGNMENT, set OPTICAL 1 for your input (DVD).

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.

No picture with cable to denon AVR-589


Long and painful answer!!! However, in the end, you need to bypass HDMI thru your receiver and go direct to the TV. Connect Digital Coaxial or Optical for audio to your receiver. Your version of HDMI in your receiver is not compatable with today's HDMI version. Yours is 1.1a and the current version is 1.3b going to 1.4. If you want detailed info as to "why", just google "HDMI 1.1 problems" you can read for hours! Sorry for the bad news! However, it is what it is. Hope this helps. If you need further help with setup, post a comment and I can give you further help.

The processor that creates the surround is all on 1 chip so sounds like a software issue.

Call Denon to see if they have a firmware update for your unit this usually is free and may fix the problem

Component inputs are for video only, and when connected through a receiver then the television also must have a video input coming to it from the video out from the receiver. If you want audio that will be a separate connection from the xbox to the receiver either by digital coaxial cable or optical cable, or composite.

Hi with my denon avr 1908 can i run video through HDMI cable and sound trough Coaxial cable so i can get 5.1 surround from my sky HD box


you can get 5.1 using HDMI connection.
other wise in the set up you can configure the denon to not use the hdmi audio and configure that input to use coaxial or optical all digital inputs allow for 5.1 once all connections are made on the front of the unit find the input mode button and select auto

Pc to denon av 2802


You can use an auxiliary input on your Denon. What type of connection is available on the sound card? Some models have toslink while most have the mini-jacks which will require an adapter (mini-jack to RCA) which you can connect to the AUX input on your Denon. On the computer, make sure the LINE-OUT of the sound card is activated.

No sound from my brand new speakers


I am assuming you have tried new speakers on used unit on both A & B choices. Have you tried your new speakers with old 2802? If they work OK with old unit, you have problem with amplifier in used unit. Take the used 2802 to a reputable shop and have it thoroughly tested. Perhaps it is just a loose connection.
