Im running sound into the receiver via HDMI from a PC.
Im using two QEF Q90's for the front speakers a Boston center channel and a JBL woofer connected to the preout.
I can't seem to get my woofer to work with my loudspeakers to play stereo music.
I can only get woofer to work when the output on the computer is set to stereo over hdmi.
And the reciever is set to Dolby , Neo 6 or Neural
None of these options are good for listening to music. The soundstage seems to move all over the place
I've tried changing speaker setting on the computer to Stereo/5.1/7.1 to no avail.

It's a solid unit with basic Audyssey calibration and a couple of HDMI inputs. Obviously a bit dated in some ways but it really depends on your needs.
My needs are having never had any 5.1 surround sound system, its finally time to go surround sound and I figured for a few hundred pounds I could get a decent used amp and speakers that would probably be more than good enough for my lame ears
I dont need to feed HMDI because my 3D projector does not like being fed messed up signals. I guess I just need optical and standard hook ups for my ps3, xbox and PC?
Following on from the last post, I have an issue with receiving 3d Sound from a dual output Sony 790 Blu-ray Player. What should the manual set up be on the 2308 to receive 3D audio only signal as as soon as I switch from 2D to 3D on the bluray the sound goes off. The 3d picture is streamed directly to the projector.
Cheers - I honestly thought that I had the HDMI separation set on the Sony so had never checked it all of the time I have fannied on with the Denon! Just changed it and it works great which is a relief as the 2308 has an awesome sound and didnt want to upgrade to an inferior 3D receiver (or change Blu-ray)
Time to watch Closer to the edge in 3D now
