Denon AVR 4306 receiver not connecting up 1080p with playstation 3

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

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.

SOURCE: Denon AVR 1610 hdmi to component video conversion missing?

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

SOURCE: Flickering video with Denon AVR 1910

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.

Good luck....

How can i upgrade denon avr 4306 up to 1080p?

You don't need to upgrade that model as it already supports 1080P. If you are using HDMI connections between the receiver your TV the receiver will upconvert the other analog video sources (composite and component video) to 1080 content. Most likely 1080i as this is the standard format when upconverting.

Hi Jim,
I tried connecting my dvr via component and optical to see if it was my hdmi or my dvr. Ended up being a bad hdmi plug in back of my amp. I was fortunate enough to have both style connections on my dvr. Hope this helps

No component output on AVR-4306

This does not work... You can only upscale the video signal with 4306; meaning you can covert s-video, component video to HDMI but can not down-convert HDMI input (coming from your HD DVD player) to Component video output. Sorry that I could not give you a solution as this is the 4306's limitation (written on the 4306 manual.).

On screen display

Try connecting to the yellow RCA monitor output on the amp and corresponding input on the TV. This works for me. You could also try the composite outputs on the amp. This is one flaw the amp has that the setup screen will not display through the HDMI connection.

Zone 2 Problem

Yes and no. You can get some digital signals to go to zones 2 & 3 but only PCM ones, Analogue always goes. I have a Denon DVD player connected to my 4306 with a denonlink cable. I had to connect RCA Analogue cables to the DVD input to get the sound to come out on Zone 2.
