I have suddenly lost all video and all DVD audio output from my 3910 (I cannot even display the setup menu on video monitor). But I can output audio signals from CDs. I am using D-Link (v3) for the audio and RCA interconnects for the video, and all of the panel indicator lights show normal function. I've triple-checked the setup, and everything seems to be correct. The problem does not lie with my surround sound receiver or with my video monitor since I can produce audio and video from other sources. Why would I be able to get audio over D-Link from a CD but not from a DVD, and why no video from the player of any kind? I've used the player for a year with no issues--this showed up out of the blue.

According to the Vizio website, your VBR231 CAN play DVDs the same way a lot of Blu-Ray players can. The site blurb suggests the VBR231 is backwards compatible - which means your player should be able to play DVDs as well as Blu-Ray. Generally, most Blu-ray players can play DVDs if they are backwards compatible with them.
I do know Blu-Ray discs will NOT work in most standalone DVD decks.

George- I do exactly what you are trying to do. I take the outputs from my cable box (3 cables: comp video, left audio, right audio and plug them into the 8030 respective input sockets (input 1 on the back). Then I have the output video cable going to the TV. I connect the 2 audio outputs on the recorder to my stereo input for both audio channels so that the audio comes out the stereo system speakers. I use the AUX input to the stereo system for this. If you are using the RF from the source, then I think the same output from the recorder setup should work for cabling. Make sure the 8030 has all the right inputs/outputs selected in the main menu setups. I hope this helps. Jacques
You say your connected from the DVD to the Denon with an HDMI cord and the Denon to the TV with an HDMI cord and you get no DVD video? can you get the Denon setup menu? if so change the res. output on the DVD to 480p, 720p or 1080i but not 1080p
Sounds like you might have a setting that is incorrect for DVDs in the setup menu.
Grab your DVD player remote and press the SETUP button. Navigate to the audio menu. Make sure Spdif is turned off (unless you're using an optical cable for your sound), that the audio stream is set to PCM (standard for CDs) or RAW, and turn off any Dolby/Digital Dolby/Surround Sound/etc. Now play a disc.
There's also another way if your remote has an AUDIO button. While the DVD is playing, press the AUDIO button and you should see a small windo that pops up that will tell you what the audio is set to. Press the button and wait a couple of seconds between presses to see if the audio starts playing.
Try pressing the HDMI button on your remote a couple of times, pause about 5seconds after each press it might be slow to change. If this doesn't work try connecting just the yellow lead(composite video) into the DVD player to the TV like the old days, probably AV1 or AV2 in the back of the TV. Then access the setup menu(setup button on remote). This will bring up a menu. Use the down arrow on the remote until HDMI setup is highlighted. You should then get a selection to turn HDMI on and select the different outputs(576, 720p, or 1080i). You might actually find the picture to be worse on some DVDs.
Since the audio is actually part of the video stream and your Video software decodes that, I would say you need to re-install whatever program you're using. On a side note, if it's a recorded DVD, you may have to use the program's setup to select the correct Audio.
Some DVD player have dedicated left-right line output aside from the set of 6 outputs for 5.1sorround. If yours got the same connect the the left-right outputs to the line-in jack of your TV and select it from DVDs menu/sound options.
