Question about Denon AVR-4306 Receiver
I have the following equipment: Denon AVR 4306 Samsung HL-S7178W Playstation 3 I am experiencing the following issue. I hooked up playstation 3 with an HDMI cable to the Denon receiver, that is published as having 1080P switching. I have an HDMI cable from the receiver to the TV. When setting up the Playstion 3 video resolution automatically it came back that it wasn't supported and only supported 480p. I then went to custom set up on the playstation 3, and chose all of the formats. It again came back and said it wasn't supported. I then only checked 480P; 720P; and 1080i. It accepted this configuation, but no 1080P. Obviously, I then made every change possible on my denon receiver with no luck. I then connected the HDMI plug directly into the TV, by-passing the receiver. With this set up, the Playstation 3 accepted all formats, including 1080P. However, my issue is this high end Denon receiver that goes for $1999 at best buy. Does anybody have info on my problem. Is this a misrepresentation by Denon, configuration issue, or is there another issue with Playstation 3 hooked up through a receiver?? Thx, Dave
Wow..yeah that is starange for it to got to EDTV 480p mode..Did you try to press and hold the power button on the Ps3 to reset it's setting?? Try to press and hold the Ps3 power button until you here hear the 2nd beep and then let go,the ps3 will reset it self and look for a video resolution..

HELLO, I DID A LITTLE RESEARCH FOR YOU AND FOUND IN YOUR MANUAL ON PG 103 IT STATES "RES OF 1080P ARE NOT HANDLED"

SOURCE: HDMI XBOX360 Elite -"No Signal"
The connection order can be a key issue as to whether or not the HDMI
signals will pass through the system. For best results the receiver
should be turned on first, then the source device(s) and then the
display. The reason for this has to do with getting the equipment to
handshake properly for the HDCP protocol.
If HDMI video will not pass through your receiver, you may with to just connect the xbox using the component cables. Since component will pass through 720p and your TV is 1080i you should expect the same qualtiy and a more crisp picture.

hello i believe your problem is that you are trying to downconvert from hdmi to component connections and Denon receivers will not do that.
I have a 4310 and I know it will UPconvert from an analog signal to HDMI but won't do it the other way around.
you may have to use component inputs for all your equipment. You will also have to go into the receivers menu and designate which signal is being used for each component as it won't auto select between analog and digital signals when it comes to video.
hope that helps

Testimonial: "Thanks. Very helpful"
I had the same issue with my Denon AVR-1908.....It turned out to be the cable box, not the receiver. I would suggest you unplug your cable box, remove and reseat the cable card,HDMI cables, and finally the cable line itself. Make sure the wires are not frayed or otherwise pinched.
