I replaced my non-HDMI TV with a Panasonic 3D TV. From a PS3, I used HDMI directly to the TV and an optical cable to the 2807. I don't used HDMI on the 2807.

I was thinking of replacing the PS3 with a Blu ray player (like Oppo BDP-103) with dual HDMI output. If I configure the Oppo HDMI as Split A/V where HDMI 1 goes to the TV for video, and HDMI 2 goes to HDMI input on the Denon 2807 for audio (having a dummy video stream), do I still need to connect an HDMI cable from the 2807 HDMI out to the TV in order to get sound? Currently, I only use component connection from 2807 to TV for Menu Setup.

I want to use HDMI audio so I can get lossless High Definition audio from the blu ray.

I don't like to use analog connections from the Oppo to the ext. in of the 2807 if it disables Audyssey.

I really like the Denon 2807, and I don't intend to replace it soon.

Generally no, as you're not passing any video to the TV from the AVR; however, in some instances the HDMI connection to the TV is required to complete the HDMI handshake and allow audio to play from the AVR. If this occurs, you can generally resolve it by connecting an HDMI switch/splitter or HDMI Detective to the AVR's HDMI monitor output (although may need to pass video through it to the TV one time so the TV's EDID information is passed to the splitter/switch or HDMI Detective).

Just remember you need to set your Oppo to send lossless multichannel PCM to the AVR-2807 because the receiver does not decode TrueHD and DTS-MA. The 2807 uses HDMI 1.2 so you cannot bitstream TrueHD and DTS-MA. I have that receiver at my father's house. A little short on HDMI inputs with only 2 but otherwise a solid and powerful receiver.

the remote is funky too but once you figure it out you're okay.

Thanks jdsmoothie and afrogt for your reply.

My Panasonic TV and this receiver have this HDMI issue that freezes this receiver so connecting an HDMI from the 2807 to the TV might be problematic. Others have also reported this issue on this thread.

Should I consider using the Oppo BDP-103 7.1 analog outputs to the ext. in of the 2807. Would I get better sound even without Audyssey.

Or should I consider the Oppo BDP-105D instead and use the 7.1 analog output for its audiophile Sable DAC. Would the Oppo BDP-105D be overkill for this receiver.

Using the EXT IN inputs, you disable Audyssey and would be using the DAC in the respective Oppo model. As most Oppo owners likely prefer using HDMI (for Audyssey), you would be better served upgrading to a more current AVR rather than going from the Oppo 103D --> 105D.

Hmmm, maybe it's time to upgrade. I was thinking of the AVR-3300W, but then the closes match to the 2807 (I think) in terms of specs is the Marantz SR6010. I mainly use the 2807 for home theatre, and occasionally for music. I'm happy with the 2807 for home theatre, but 2 channel music could be better.

Do you think an Oppo (with Darbee) be a good complement to a new receiver and a worthy upgrade from PS3. Or should I get a less expensive consumer branded blu ray.

If you have a PS3 slim, I'd just keep it, otherwise, if a PS3 fat, then you'll want to upgrade to a newer model or the Oppo 103D.

Can anyone make a suggestion on which I should go for. I used it mainly for home theatre. I listen to some music occasionally.

Both are sister models and use the much more advanced XT32 over just XT on your 2807. Marantz is better known for a better detailed music listening experience; however, is much more costly over the Denon. AVS no longer sells the SR6010, rather the newer SR6011 which will be able to use the new Audyssey phone app when released just as will the X3300W. Call for pricing and availability if interested.

Thumbs down AUX L/R Input Not Playing In Stereo

Hello everyone. I have a question. I can't remember when this issue started. When I connect to play music from an iPod, phone or tablet via my RCA cable to 3.5mm the L/R aux input at the front of the receiver, I only get audio from the sub and right front speaker.

I watch TV in 7 channel stereo just fine and Blu-ray movies play perfectly fine through all speakers. Am I doing something wrong? Or, is my old AVR 2807 receiver starting to show it's age? I got it in 2007.

Any help/advice would be much appreciated!

Paul

The issue likely resides with the iPod, however, try connecting it to the rear RCA inputs on the 2807.

Or maybe you have a bad RCA to 3.5mm cable....

@JDS smoothie, @afrogt ,

Thanks for your responses. I have swapped out cables and got the same result. I also get the same result from connecting my phone, iPod and tablet.

I will try an RCA input at the back of the receiver.

Fingers crossed and thanks again!

What happens when you swap sides (e.g. hook up the RCA cable but feed it backwards, right side going to left input and left side going to right input)? Does the audio still only come out of the right front speaker or does it swap over to the left front speaker?
