The "Official" Denon AVR-2807 Thread - Page 135

post #4021 of 4105
That's good to hear. I,ve had the receiver for a few years and it's been great. I was using it as a 5.1 but now use it only for two channel music. I've considered an amp but it sounds very good as it is now.

I was wondering if anyone can help, i have my DVD connected to the denon avr 2807 via HDMI, i then have my monitor connect also via HDMI, i have recently connected my Lenovo G570 laptop also via HDMI, using the V.aux i replicated all the DVD settings which works fine by the way, for my laptop, while i get the video output just fine, i cant get the audio to work, when i look under control panel hardware and sound and sound manage devices i can see the play back device is AMD HDMI output, and it all looks good, but i cant get any audio at all. any ideas or suggestions??

Hi Mickyboy, make sure "Audio Input Mode" is set to "Auto" or "HDMI" and not Analog or Digital OPT or Digital Coaxl.

You can also test your laptop AMD HDMI Output by clicking Configure and then Test.

Thanks for your reply JChin, yes it is set to auto which is the same setting for the DVD, have gone through the process of configurating the HDMI Output., but heard nothing when i hit the test button.

If laptop is connected directly to tv via HDMI, does it output audio?
post #4026 of 4105
Will try it and let you know
post #4027 of 4105
JChin, tried it in the TV and it worked and both the audio and video worked fine, does that mean thet the setting i've applied in the AVR are wrong???? I dont see how will go through it again but it all looked ok to me
post #4028 of 4105
^^^ possible a HDMI handshake issue. Reconnect laptop to receiver and try turning components "on" in a certain order - tv > receiver > laptop or try switching over to a different source input and then back to laptop input. Also make sure laptop has the updated driver.
post #4029 of 4105
Already updated the driver, will try the rest, thans for your help JChin

I am trying to use the front optical input (OPT-5) . If I assign OPT-5 to V-AUX in menu I get no audio but if I use something else for example "CD" then it works fine. Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong ?
Thanks
post #4031 of 4105
The OPT5 input factory defaults to V-AUX so it should work. Ensure V-AUX is not assigned to an HDMI input as it will then take priority over the OPT5 input.

Hi All,
I am a happy owner of an AVR-2807 since January of 2007 but its lack of many HDMI inputs, no on-screen display thru HDMI out, lack of networking to get direct access to music on my NAS, and a host of other more modern digital features are making me think about replacing this. What is the most recent offering from Denon which equivalent sound quality but upgraded digital features? I'm interested in at least 6 HDMI inputs, only 1 video out is fine, don't mind complex setup, need 3D, and wouldn't mind if it was 4K compatible for future proofing. I see some interesting posts on the xx13 thread - is that the right level of AVR to be looking at? Are there other brands I should consider (Denon was my first AVR)?

Any help would be much appreciated.
post #4033 of 4105
I would go with an xx13 model considering your description. If you need the pre-outs that the 2807 offers for an external amp the 3313ci is your only choice, otherwise you would be fine with the 2113 or 2313. Check out the beginning of the xx13 owners thread and I detail the differences among the models. All three of these models have MultEQ XT so should have sound quality like your 2807, but with the improvement of higher resolution subwoofer filters (added to MultEQ XT with the xx08 models) and Dynamic EQ/Volume (added on the xx09 models).
post #4034 of 4105
Thanks for the quick reply! What about the new "E" series models just announced? Are these not in the same class, audio/video quality-wise?
post #4035 of 4105
It appears that the new "E" series is just the new name coding for the 2013 model lineup. The models just announced are the three entry-level units, so probably equivalent to the current 1513, 1613, and 1913 models. I don't really know much about them at this point, but it looks like they are lower powered and only have basic MultEQ, so I would stick to the models I mentioned above.
post #4036 of 4105
This is probably not possible, but is there a way to listen with only the front and center channels? If I'm watching news or something I don't need the surrounds. I found a way to turn off the back surrounds but not the rest.
post #4037 of 4105
Not really, no, unless you manually turn off the surrounds in the Speaker Setup menu.

Why do you care if the surrounds are playing? I know you don't "need" them but how much of a problem is it when you are watching the news??

You can always switch to STEREO mode which will of course mute the center but also the surrounds.
post #4038 of 4105
My setup isn't in a dedicated AV room, so having the surrounds on all the time will bother others. Not a big deal, but I thought I'd ask.
post #4039 of 4105
So just use STEREO mode when you don't want to bother others. Problem solved smile.gif
post #4040 of 4105
Hi. Apologies if this was prior addressed, but I am a newbie, and my search didn't unveil any answer to this issue.

Is there any way to re-name the function in AUDIO 2? For instance, if I plug in a Computer in the VDP input, can I go into AUDIO 2 ]and rename the function "Computer" instead of "VDP"? Obviously this works to rename the functions in Audio 1, but unfortunately that name change in Audio 1 doesn't translate into Audio 2 (ie if you change the function name in Audio 1, it still lists it as its original function name in Audio 2 display)...So somehow, there must be a way to get into Audio 2 menu functions and change the function name there.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
post #4041 of 4105
Hi Confuzed -- I am confuzed too! I don't understand your reference to AUDIO 1 versus AUDIO 2? What is the "Audio 2 display" and "Audio 2 menu functions" that you are talking about? Where are you finding this in the receiver? I honestly don't understand what you are talking about here.
post #4042 of 4105
Hi Batpig--Sorry for the confusion. I meant Zone 1 and Zone 2 (instead of Audio 1 and Audio 2). Hope now that's more clear...thanks for any insights you have on this....

Hello all,

Yesterday I opened a similar thread but probably this is a better place to ask.

I have a denon 987 (same as 2807) and my connection is:
htpc (foobar version 1.1.18 > wasapi (event or push doesn't matter)) > gts450 video card's hdmi output > denon 987 receiver (hdmi1 - pure direct) > stereo speakers

I am getting an "Unsupported stream format: 96000 Hz / 24-bit / 2 channels" error and in the control panel it looks like 96000hz is not supported by denon (please see the below ss).
However, I believe 2807 supports 24bit/96000hz input via hdmi - am I wrong?

If it indeed supports 24bit/96000hz input via hdmi, what could I do to fix the problem? Could it be related to hdmi cable or something else?



Thank you!
post #4044 of 4105
Not likely HDMI cable related, rather file format related. What format is being used? Try a different format.

Thanks for the quick reply.

The test was done with HDtracks Anti-Master quality connection (high res flac files/format): https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?file=login&redirectto=samplealbumdownload&ialbum_id=13277

As mentioned here, "despite HDTracks stating that all tracks are 96/24, 4 tracks are actually 44.1 kHz - not 44 upsampled to 96, but actual 44.1 - and one is 88 kHz".

I have no problems with 44.1khz tracks but I am unable to play 96khz since in the control panel it seems like it is not supported.
post #4046 of 4105
Correct. The AVR cannot support 96khz FLAC file formats.

Thanks again for the reply.

In a thread, it is stated that:

"There should not be a problem doing what you want. FLAC is not a format that can be streamed through HDMI, but it would be decoded into 96kHz LPCM by the player software in your computer. All AVRs should accept stereo LPCM, and most audio-player software should be able to create it from FLAC."

Now either foobar is not correctly converting flac to lpcm OR there is something wrong with the connection.

I believe regardless of what foobar does or does not, in the control panel I should be able to see "96khz" in the supported formats section, wouldn't I?
post #4048 of 4105
HTPC connections can be tricky. You may have better luck with another software package.
post #4049 of 4105
Hello guys,

You folkz are my last resort, i'm getting mad at my remote! For some reason it dont work any more, i know i had the problem earlier but managed to get it to work by pressing some button but this time i dont know what i have to do.

The problem is what ever i press the CD button and the Learned/TX light is turned on but my receiver dont do anything, i cant turn the volume up/down or anything. If i change the mode to say DVD and i press a button it jumps back to CD.
I think i have entered some mode but i have no clue what it is and how i have done so. Please please if you know what my problem is do tell me how i exit this.

Thanks guys.

Did you press the Zone 1 (Main) ON button? Otherwise you may want to try resetting the microprocessor (p. 42 OM).
