My friend just gave me his Denon 2087. I'm a very basic a/v dude and am trying to connect the following simple set-up:
1. Samsung tv
2. Technics turntable
3. Two speakers
4. Center speaker
5. Apple TV
6. Simple, old Sony dvd player
Here are my problems:
1. The remote only works for its Power button and to select the setting on receiver (ie: phone, TV, etc.)
2. My center speaker worked last night when I hooked it up, but after pressing a series of who knows what buttons last night after setting things up, the center doesn't work today. Last night, the center worked for my turntable (phono) but not for Apple TV (which is why I hit a bunch of buttons like a bozo in the dark).
All my speaker cable connections are in tact.
3. My biggest pain is that I can't control the Volume from the remote. Drives me nuts.
I'm not techie, just want it to work. Any thoughts for a simpleton?
