Trying to play xbox 360 throug Denon AVR-2807 receiver - no video, only snow!

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?

SOURCE: AVR 2807 shuts off at high volumes

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.

SOURCE: How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI

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

SOURCE: Audio Problems playing VHS tapes with Denon AVR 1910

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.

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.

Pc connection to denonAVR 2807 receiver


ideally you would use an HDMI video cable but few video cards support that standard yet.

Your next best choice is to use a DVI to HDMI connection cable. They work very well as the video signal is the same between the two the only difference is that a DVI cable does not support sound so you will have to use a 3.5mm stereo (male) to RCA cable for sound.

Now there could be complications there as your receiver may not be able to display a video images off the hdmi cable while combining sound from the analog cable.

Some computer video cards have an RCA or s-video output and that will work BUT the picture quality is going to be bad, real bad.

a better option is to find a device that allows you to connect to your network to view images and videos. There are a number of such devices such as x-box 360, Tivo series 3 etc..


Hope that heps point you in the right direction

I have Denon 4308. Is it possible to use video select with hdmi?  When I try,the screen goes blank. -- Regards JP Naess Norway


From the manual of your Denon page 41:
http://www.usa.denon.com/AVR-4308CI-OM-E_305A.pdf
"Video Select -It is not possible to select HDMI input signals. • When playing HDMI video input signals, the analog video signal of another input source cannot be selected for the HDMI video output."

Can't get the sound to work on my TV using the Denon AVR-2807


In the 2807 the HDMI out is a video out only. Audio is not processed through the HDMI output.
If you are using speakers it is best to adjust the playback modes to stereo if you are annoyed with surround sound modes.
Please comment if I helped.

I have a denon avr-2807 receiver. on tv mode, i can only get analog signals. i am using an optical cable and the signal is only transmitted in digital. how can i correct this?


An optical cable is digital but its only audio not video. Are you connected to a cable or satellite box, are you using composit video, s-vid, component video, or hdmi? What kind of cable goes from your denon to your tv?

Operating my ipod docking station


Absolutely!
Keyword(Read the instruction and follow it step-by-step.) Well,if you do,you wouldn't be asking for help,cause you want a 50+ pages Denon manual instruction to be concise to few paragraphs so you could move on with your life-:o)
Okay.only this time!
Denon ipod docking station comes with a power plug and a set of cable which you need to connect behind the Denon AVR-2807 receiver which is under an INPUT LABEL for IPOD only(not going to give it away,you will find it!)
Now,of course you could use HDMI......but,the quickest way to view your video(on screen menu) will be using a composite(RCA) video cable to connect from the Video output(yellow color) from the receiver to the TV composite video input.Turn on your IPOD,and you are ready to see the on screen manual.
Hey,this is just a lazy way to start you off if tomorrow night you have a date;otherwise,set it up properly by using the instruction!
Cheers,
