Thanks for the suggestion but there is a problem with that configuration. I have an HDMI cable connected to HDMI1 source from my PC video card and if I hook up the 1/8" mini-plug stereo cable to the PC IN AUDIO jack I will not be able to see the video if the source is switched to PC IN.

Usually when you have more than one HDMI port you always should connect to the 1st and any other component extra to 2 then 3. In your set HDMI1 is best for viewing for 4K or default, HDMI2 is for a stereo that supports ARC and HDMI3 is for extra components. In most TV now the set will not let you connect to an input source unless you physically have a component with a cable in that source port first. I'm figuring that might be the case of your TV set.or else it wants you to use HDMI1 first If you do have a cable in HDMI3 with a component and it's not letting you connect to it, then the other thought could be that the plug has gone bad,
Check in the menu of the tv do there is any option to select the input source. If so the select there its to hdmi 1. after that turn off the tv and ON again and check do it go back to TV mode.

channel is not the correct path
you need to be thinking What input source do I need on the tv
atv dtv - THIS IS FOR AN ANTENNA CABLE
hdmi1 hdmi2 hdmi3 av1 av2 these are input sources
look on remote for input or source button .
You should check your Denon manual to be sure that the receiver has been set up correctly. My 1913 has many set up options including associating a particular HDMI out connection with a particular source like CBL/SAT or DVD. The fact that you hear sound indicates the HDMI cable connecting the cable box or DVD player to the receiver is working ( at least the sound portion of the HDMI in cable.)
Next, is the HDMI connection you are using to the TV the one selected in the source listing on the TV ? The sound and video circuitry on a receiver are separated and you can hear sound but see no video if the TV isn't selecting the correct source. For example if the TV is set to HDMI1 but you are plugged into HDMI 2. If this doesn't solve your problem try this:
At this point you don't know if the problem is the receiver HDMI connections or TV HDMI connections or a bad HDMI cable. The first thing to try is a new HDMI Cable. If that doesn't solve the problem then do the following.
If the TV has more than one HDMI connection try another HDMI port. Be sure to switch the source on the TV to the new HDMI port ie. HDMI1,HDMI2 or whatever.
If this fixes the problem you are done. If not then Try the same thing with the HDMI out ports on the receiver. Try each one not forgetting to set the receiver to use the HDMI port you are testing.
Since this can get confusing I would write down what you are testing each time so you don't get lost or confused.
If none of this works then you can try hooking up another TV to the HDMI cable, if you have one. If you do this and you still have a problem it points to the receiver as being the culprit.
The most likely problem is you have misconfigured the system so that is where I started. Each test is dependent on the fact that your system is correctly configured to begin with.
check source setting via remote. If you have digital television then DTV most likely should be the source. If using HDMI on a Video player then HDMI1 check if video player cable is plugged into HDMI1 if you have one.
Plug all cables in the ports in the back of your television, the use the remote of the television select Source scroll up or down for required hdmi channel select buy stopping it on the channel then press ok
I understand, it's something I've misunderstood on my denon avr-790 as well when connected to a samsung 8000 series led tv. The answer isn't in the receiver's settings (you can be on whatever source you want on the receiver end when toggling the menu). You need to toggle through the tv's sources to find the menu (usually found on hdmi 1). I've spent towards an hour recently troubleshooting only to find that it was the tv's source that wasn't set properly and I was trying to change the receiver's settings instead of the tv's source. Hope that helps!
Welcome to Fixya. If you're using a HDMI cable to connect your Ps3 to your TV you need to set the input to HDMI. Use the remote of the TV look for Source or Input Button then change the Input to HDMI1 or HDMI2.
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
