The "Official" Denon AVR-2807 Thread - Page 136

post #4051 of 4105
Strange! i never thought it could be the batteries since the buttons lit up and it behaved as it was ok but i changed the batteries and it started working again. Thanks for the help.

I am trying to program my Oppo BDP83 into my Denon RC-1030 remote. But the 4 digit code isn't listed in the 2807 Operating Instructions. I've searched this thread and haven't found an answer. Does anyone know the codes? Or does anyone have any ideas where I might find them? Thanks.
post #4053 of 4105
Yeh ... could be tough as you're trying to put a 2009 BDP code into a 2006 remote control (although I'm not sure that Denon remotes have ever been able to control Oppo BDPs). You're much better served simply picking up a Harmony remote to control all of your devices.
post #4054 of 4105
Thanks jd. My Harmony remote has started to malfunction so I thought I would see what the Denon remote could do.

I just bought an AVR-2807 from a neighbor -- I had previously used a NAD C320 BEE driving a pair of Mission 73's. I know it's hard to compare a 7.1 system to a stereo amp, but I'm wondering if it's worth keeping the NAD and running my turntable through it. Anyone using their AVR with a stereo amp?

Thanks for your thoughts!

Anyone using an HDMI switcher to input to the 2807?

Currently have cable into 1 and BDVD into 2 and want to get a Roku box for Netflix

Thanks!
post #4057 of 4105
No reason adding an HDMI switch wouldn't work. smile.gif

My RC 1030 remote seems to have completely stopped functioning. Does anyone know if a microprocessor reset of the receiver may allow the remote to pair with the receiver again? If not does anyone know where I could find a new RC 1030 remote? My most significant issue is not being able to select "speaker" (A, B, A+B) without the remote. I don't know that there is a way to do this on the 2807 without remote?
post #4059 of 4105
Not to state the obvious, but did you replace the batteries?
post #4060 of 4105
Yes I have replaced them with 3 different sets of brand new batteries.

Hi, I have just bought a Panasonic TXP50GT60 and its not playing ball with my Denon AVR2807 amp, I know the amp is ok because it works with a Pioneer and LG plasma.
The Hdmi switcher works the first time and then the amp freezes up, ie you can't change the volume, function ie another source and even the standby button doesn't work, you have to use the on/off to turn the amp off.
I have read some reviews that this amp may have compatibility issues with the new Panasonic tv's, any adice will be greatly appreciated.
post #4062 of 4105
Turn off any HDMI CEC functions on your plasma such as Viera sync.

Your 2807 is HDMI 1.1 while your plasma is HDMI 1.4 so its possible some of the upgraded capabilities or enhancements of 1.4 aren't jiving with your Denon
post #4063 of 4105
I will give that a go, the strange thing is a 2013 LG 50PH660V worked fine.

The full story is we broke the screen on our Pioneer plasma recently when we moved house, we had a quick look at some plasma's and the LG looked like it had a good picture for the price so that came home and worked fine with the amp but was soon returned as we soon realised it wasn't in the same league as the Pioneer.
I was going to buy the Panasonic VT60 but after a trip to my local Panasonic shop and a chat I came away with the GT60, if you look at the spec its not far behind the VT60 but its £500 cheaper.
post #4064 of 4105
You just bought a brand new TV .. time to upgrade your AVR to something newer as well, especially as the majority of the new models are all networking capable now. smile.gif

Purchased a Denon 2807 for cheap on Craigslist a couple of weeks ago. Came with the remote but had to order the calibration microphone online. In the meantime I used my DM-A409 Audyssey mic to calibrate the system. JD advised me to get the OEM remote as some of the frequency responses might be off with the other Audyssey mic. So I ordered the DM-S205.

Everything seemed to work fine as I did the six positions as it set my channel levels anywhere between -2 and +2. But what I noticed is that I got no bass from Dolby Digital 5.1 or even 2.0 sources. I've set all my speakers to small so the sub should kick in. I have a Denon 1613 in the same room and when I swap receivers and connect the speakers and sub to it everything works fine.

Got the OEM remote in today and did a processor reset on the 2807 a couple of times. Then did the Audyssey calibration and it came up with close to the same settings as before. When running the test tones the subwoofer can be heard clearly but when watching a 5.1 broadcast the sub can't be heard at all. I tried many different channels and shows that I know have a LFE track. Then I decided to recalibrate again using the Speaker B terminals as my mains along with the center and surrounds. Audyssey recalibrated with similar settings as before except it set all my fronts as SMALL whereas using the A speakers it set the fronts as LARGE and then I manually had to change them to SMALL and also change the crossover to 80hz.

I've got all speakers set as Small, crossover at 80hz, Sub set to LFE and even tried LFE + Main. It didn't matter, little or no sound from the sub. I can plug all speakers and sub back into my 1613 and everything works fine. Same sources too.When I bumped up the channel level to +10 from 0 on the 2807 the sub can be heard a little better but nowhere near as loud as with the 1613.

This is a strange one as I have 3 other Denon receivers with Audyssey and have never had this problem before. I guess it could actually be a defect in this model. This receiver is going to my father's house i my old bedroom so I can use it when I visit so it isn't really a big deal. Plus I may decide to only connect 2 speakers with no sub when I take it there. But before I do I just want to be sure I didn't miss anything or maybe there is a setting unique to this receiver?

I've used HDMI and digital coax from my sat receiver for audio. both work the same.

One thing for sure the 2807 is less user friendly than my 2809, 1613 or 591. The remote is pretty bad too.

I'm just wondering if this is one of the quirks of the 2807 that was fixed with newer/upgraded versions of Audyssey? Even though the 2807 has Mult EQ XT is doesn't have Dynamic EQ or Dynamic Vol. It has something called RoomEQ. Or maybe just a defective receiver is this respect?

Thanks for any insight. I'm using a 5.1 set consisting of Energy Encore bookshelf speakers (6.5" woofer), EC-100 center, RVSS surrounds and a XL-s10 subwoofer. Once again everything works fine when connected to my AVR 1613 receiver.

Are you sure it's not just the absence of Dynamic EQ? Your other three Denons have it.

Did you compare to the 1613 with Dyn EQ off? And do you have an SPL meter with which you could check output levels?
post #4067 of 4105
since its midnight I'll have to try the SPL meter later in the afternoon. Maybe it is the lack of dynamic EQ but you'd think I'd get some bass.

Went home at lunch and tested the 1613 with Dyn EQ off. Still had much more bass than the 2807. Actually there was more bass with DynEQ off than with it on. Used the SPL meter to make sure all speakers were calibrated at 75db. Then reconnected the 2807 and ran the test tones too. Speakers/sub set at 75db. Even ran the sub a little hot +2 or 3 db.

Still when I started to watch a DD 5.1 program I couldn't hear the subwoofer at all or it was very faint. Very strange.Test tones and calibration work normally.
post #4069 of 4105
I can pick one of these up in near mint condition for about $300. Yay or nay?
post #4070 of 4105
Depends on your requirements.
post #4071 of 4105
IMO for $300 it's a bit overpriced. This unit has an older version of MultEQ XT, doesn't have Dyn EQ or Vol, and only 2 HDMI inputs that aren't even 1.3 version.
post #4072 of 4105
I just upgraded my speakers (worked fine for days) and also replaced my TV (started this problem when I did that). My Denon 2807 will stop responding to input. If it was playing audio before, it will continue to play the audio. But volume, inputs, any setting will not respond, not even the soft power button. It takes pressing the hard power button for it to start to respond again. But it will stop responding soon after the reset.

Is my receiver finally toast? Any ideas on things to try or what might be causing it?

thanks.

I too just got a new TV, but don't have any problem. I disconnected the HDMI monitor out cable from the old TV and plugged in the new one.

Assuming your 2807 is not toast, I would suggest the following:

1) Turn the power switch on the front of the unit off and unplug the 2807 from power for a couple of minutes and then reconnect the power and press the power switch on.

2) Double check your connections. For example, make sure that none of the individual wires from the speaker cables touch adjacent terminals.

3) Perform a reset (initialization of the microprocessor) as described on page 42 of the operating instructions. This will reset all your settings back to factory defaults, so write them all down first before you do this.

I have determined that it is the new t.v. if it is connected to the Denon with the hdmi it causes it to lock up.

Hopefully Panasonic or Denon can provide me a solution.
post #4075 of 4105
Panasonic Tech Support was totally useless. All I got was someone reading from a book... Solution was buy a new receiver...

Denon was more helpful. He offered some options and gave me the reset command. I don't really expect it to fix it but at least it was something.

I ordered a better quality cable to be sure that isn't it.
post #4076 of 4105

I have had this same issue recently... have you discovered anything? If it's off for a while, it seems to come back, but it is unpredictable how long it will be functional. 

 

thanks!

Then intermittently I started to loose sound occasionally over the past week or 2. Originally thought my kids were manually using the source selection or playing with the receiver.

A few times, just shut things down and let my remote macro get everything set up as expected. Sound would come back as expected.

Well TV and AVR were on the other day, I was in the hallway and heard a mild "snap" or "pop" though the speakers just as all sound dropped out. Had a feeling something not good just happened.

Tried to shut unit off and let it cool to room temp, turn it back on, no change. Also noticed that while I could change the video, the Volume as not responsive from either the remote or volume control. Although I had no sound, I could see the Volume level would not change.

I have started to search the Internet and there seems to be a number of cases where the AVR's in this era/family have lost all audio and many of the post point to a problem with the audio DSP chip or board. Some reference the Sharc DSP chip? Not sure if my unit has the Sharc chip, I have popped the top to inspect fuses, look and smell for damage(d) components, looked for leaking or bulged capacitors. So far, everything on the first look appears fine.

Anyone have any additional insight on this issue, issues with the DSP chip(s), I see the Sharc chip is located on the HDMI board after further investigation.

 

Have you had any success with getting this resolved??? I just started having the exact same issue with mine... 

thanks! 

post #4078 of 4105

I'm hoping some 2807 experts still are on this thread!

 

I recently purchased a 2807 at a great price since it has the combination of inputs and outputs I need.  Great physical condition, all accessories and manual. Got it setup and everything seems fine except I cannot get any sound out of the surround channels (as evidenced by lack of output when using the test tones function). I have read and re-read the manual and I am almost sure it is not a configuration error.  Having said that, any suggestions for checking the setup would be appreciated.  Additionally, is there any other way to confirm the surround channels are working, other than using the test tone generator. Anyone seen this problem before and if so, what was the outcome? TIA!

post #4079 of 4105
The AMP ASSIGN setting generally defaults to "Zone 2" for the Surr Back speaker posts. Ensure it is set to "Surround Back" (p.10 OM).

post #4080 of 4105

Thanks for quick reply!

 

I'm not sure you understand my problem so let me clarify.  The problem is not with the Back Surround channels. I am not using the Back Surround channels (7.1 surround sound). I am configuring for 5.1 surround sound, since I do not have a 7 speaker system. The problem is with the surround channels. Front Left, Center and Front Right channels all produce a test tone when using the Test Tone function.  I get no test tones from the Surround Left and Surround Right channels.  Speaker configuration is as follows:

 

Front-Small

Center-Small

Subwoofer-None

Surround-Small

Surround Back-None

 

Surround speakers are good and tested by switching physically to the front channels.  Test tones are heard when connected to the front channels.  Currently re-checking wiring and connections.
