Well, do you want to say you always get what you're promised?
Besides, it might help to isolate the problem. Maybe your problem has nothing to do with HDMI: receiver might be at fault, DVD player or configuration.
In any case I would try to contact Denon first.
There are problems with some receivers passing through the audio, especially to the rear speakers.
I am still tring to figure it out myself - but yah, the beauty of HDMI is to get everything in one cable, so why would you run it through another cable if you didn;t need to (although that is one solution).
I just bought the 3806 but having difficulty setting it up...
I am not getting any AUDIO through my Receiver... BUT can get Audio through TV. I understand I am suppose to set as follows:??
Video Set up --> HDMI In Assign --> DVD to HDMI-1 and HDMI Audio to "AMP" for receiving sound though AMP... it says NO SIGNAL
when i play I get a HIGH PITCH sound from the speakers...
My connection is:
DVD HDMI OUT to Receiver HDMI-1 IN
Receiver HDMI OUT to my Pioneer Plasma Receiver HDMI IN
I didnt connect anything else to the receiver (ONLY DVD)
I dont know what else to do... I am stuck..
The 3806 has no problem processing HDMI Audio from a compliant HDMI source. You do have to get up to speed on how to set up the 3806 and or the DVD source. You should also state what brand/model DVD y ou are connecting. I have a 3806 and experience no problems she connecting a Sony BD-p1000, Sony 400 disk changer or a Directv HD PVR.
