Need Help - no audio output via HDMI/coax
I'm hoping someone on this forum can help me with some issues I'm having with a Denon AVR-2808CI that I just purchased. Though I bought it 2nd hand, it was a former floor model and was essentially in like new condition with all remotes, accessories, etc. It even came in the original box! Right now I have the AVR hooked up to a Denon-1930CI DVD player. I am using this system exclusively for audio, especially surround sound DVD-audio and SACD.
Essentially, I am having two issues here, both involving audio output:
1) I have tried to use both HDMI and Coaxial connections between the DVD player and the AVR but I am getting no sound either way. The receiver is clearly reading the signal, as all of the "correct" lights are coming up on the receiver display. For example, I popped in a DTS-CD and it immediately lit up the speaker configuration for 5.1 sound and said DTS-surround on the display. Similarly, when I popped in another disc with a DTS 96/24 stream, the "96/24" and "DTS" lights came on. However, no audio is coming through my speakers. Now, if I switch to the all-analog EXT-IN option, then I get full audio and it sounds great, but I still would like to make sure that I have full functionality with this receiver. I also really would like to use the HDMI connection to set up a Blu-Ray player so that I can play Blu-Ray audio discs.
2) My second issue involves the "Test tone" set-up function. When I tried to use the test tones, I also did not get any audio coming out of the speakers. The display correctly cycled through each speaker and allowed me to make db adjustments, but I could not hear a test tone. Could this issue be related somehow to my first one?
The frustrating part is that all my other connections work fine. Like I said, the Ext.In signal sounds great, so I can play SACDs and DVD-audios. I've also got a CD player and turntable hooked up and they both sound great. I really like the sound of this receiver, so I'm hoping someone can help me here!
