Question about Denon AVR-2807 Receiver
I am trying to play my xbox 360 through my Denon AVR-2807 receiver using HDMI input to receiver and HMDI out to my TV. Note: Blu-ray player works fine HDMI1 input when HDMI1 assigned to "DVD". Playing Xbox through HDMI1 "DVD" channel gets sound but no video (snow). Also tried playing xbox via HDMI2 on VDP channel. That gives no sound or video. Is the newer Xbox not compatible with Denon's older HDMI input?

I had the same problem. Rebooting did the trick. Reboot the unit per the instructions provided by another user on the main page. Here they are:
To reboot, turn receiver off by the small on/off button, not the big standby button. While off press the night and pure direct button at the same time and keep holding them with your right hand while pressing the small on/off button with your left. You will see your receiver menu flash. When you see it flash let go of the night and pure direct button and the receiver will reset it self to the radio station 87.50. The receiver's microprocessor has now been set back to factory.

The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.
Connect and Enjoy

Did it EVER work as expected with VCR audio through the HDMI or are we working through that right now assuming it can?
I don't have a detailed manual, but the rear panel clearly shows some analog-only outputs (and NO digital ones) for the section called DVD/VCR. Internally, I'm sure there are proper analog-digital-converters for recording VHS to the native DVD-R, but VHS VCR's are NOT inherently digital audio devices so I'm pretty sure you need to run an analog RCA pair for the VHS video.

SOURCE: I have a Denon AVR
The optical audio connection (the TOSLINK) only works when paired with the Component connectors. Now you are using the the Composite one so you must use the audio connectors associated with it, the red and white next to it; then select the VCR1 input when you want to use them.
The audio quality will suffer a little but it will most surely pass unnoticed in most of the cases.
