I have a problem. My surround HDMI headphones dont work with the AV8801. They did work fine with my previous AVR, a Pioneer Elite VSX-53. I am attaching a screenshot of connections. It is in Japanese (they are sold there mostly, there is no English manual, sorry), but the diagram is pretty simple and does not need a translation. Basically, monitor out from AV8801 goes into the headphones processor , from there HDMI out goes into the TV. Simple. But it does not work. The only explanation thaat comes to mind is HDCP or a higher HDMI version in the AV8801 as opposed to the Pioneer Elite I used to have.
There are a couple of workarounds.
1) Get a 6.35mm 1/4" Stereo plug to 2 x RCA Female Socket Audio Headphone Adapter, connect headphones out on the AV8801 and it will work (I hope). I dont want to go this route because the surround capability will be lost. Besides, this ugly adapter and unsightly RCA cables will be hanging on the front panel of the otherwise gorgeous Marantz!
2) Connect Media Server RCA out on the back panel of the Marantz. This is what I have now. The problem that this ONLY sends the Media Server audio to the headphones, BluRay, DVR and all other sources do not.
Question: why wouldn't HDMI work with the headphones? What would you suggest I do? Thanks a lot.

If connected to one of the main zone HDMI outputs, the "HDMI Audio Out" setting would have to be set to "TV" in order to pass the audio along with the video, otherwise the Zone 4 HDMI Out will pass audio/video by default.

I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your help, JD. Switching to "TV" did the trick! This is the third problem you helped me resolved. Thanks a lot.

Note also that if using an analog connection to headphones, you can also connect to either the Zone 2/3 pre-outs or the Media Player analog output (mirrors Zone 2 pre-out) but doing so would not pass HDMI sources, rather only analog and networking (unlike the newer AV8802 which can also pass 2.0 HDMI and optical/digital coax to Zone 2).

It all works now. For a minute there was another issue. I tested the BluRay player. The signal was DTS-HD MSTR on disk. But the AV8801 showed "Stereo". As soon as I switched from "TV" to "AVP", the signal was correct, but there was no sound in the headphones. But as soon as I switched back to "TV" the Marantz showed the correct DTS-HD MSTR and headphones started to work as well. Must have reset somehow. So, it all works now.
So, thanks guys!
