And so it goes...
Yes, Bob has been here, did a very nice job.
Mooney, just signed in to the AVS site, my interest in AVR-3806, bought in 2006 but minimally used at old house, now trying to do a more complete surround integration, but do recall having issues with the HDMI, so starting where u guys were few yrs ago. Not sure if you are even contributing to thread anymore. Suspect some of my problem was trying to translate the manual. anyway going thru the thread to pick up some goodies and look at manual for the 3 or 4th time. But considering getting an software upgrade, have support within the sun valley.
Doing a late integration of the SAT XM radio with the Denon AVR-3806 and looking for the XM Connnect and Play, so looking at the newer Audio Vox XHD2H1 XM direct tuner for XM ready Home Sterios, since the merge of XM and Sirius, I'm assuming all is good with the XM interface on the AVR-3806, anyone out there have any info. and if there has been any reported issue with the XM/AVR-3806 interface, etc? I understand there are at least 1 firmware update for the AVR-3806, that I'm considering, since it would local support vice trying to do myself. thx dennis
Hi everyone. I just joined the site a few days ago. I hope I'm posting my question in the right order here. I didn't think I needed to start a new thread. Anyway..I got my hands on a 3806 recently but it came with no remote and I'm having a confusing time trying to set it up. I started by resetting it so I would be starting from scratch. I'm a real novice and am really just interested in a simple basic set-up. I'm only going to be hooking up the front,center,and sw speakers. My only device hooked up is a dvd recorder running from the recorder to the old rca crt tv via S-video. Is that the best way? I'm also having trouble getting the tuner to function. Do I need the remote for that? And finally, can anyone tell me where I can get the remote for this? Thanks a lot.
Thank you all for the replies. I did find the original remote on ebay and so far my bid of $51 is the highest. But I am thinking about a harmony remote too. I saw one on Amazon for $43 that looks like it might be a good fit for me. It's the Logitech harmony 300. What do you all think of that vs. the original? I would only use it for the dvd recorder and the 3806. As for my old tv it only has s-video and composite connection(red,white.yellow). So I can run the s-video from the 3806 to dvd to tv? Told you I was a novice(lol). This receiver is a little too sophisticated. And I wanted to know if there is such a thing as a simple set-up with what I have. And I still can't get the tuner to work. Thanks.
