    I recently got my 3805, and I was surprised that input channel indicator on the left part of the display does not show up at all for stereo sources like CDs.
    Can anyone confirm that it's OK?
    I checked 2805 and it always shows number of input channels for all sources.

    I think I've experienced that too. I think it's something to do with whether or not the stereo signal is digital or analogue and / if it is carried to the amp by digital or analogue (bitstream or PCM).

    Well, I tried playing a CD thorugh my DVD player connected to optical input, and MP3 files ripped off CD through my computer connected to coaxial input - same thing. It supposed to show FL and FR channels, but shows nothing.
    2805 - does.
    Does that indicate a possible problem with my receiver?

    Either my question is not clear or nobody has 3805 receiver. :)
    Let me put it in a more clear way:
    when I play a DVD movie recorded in Dolby Digital, I see 5-7 channels on the left side of the receiver's display. When I play a CD, I do not see 2 channels for some reason. My DVD player is connected via optical cable, I tried coaxial too.
    My question is what is the reason for that?
    :lease:

    I might be able to answer you with my 2805 later this evening, does the display show PCM when it's playing?

    Yes it does. Display shows "DIG" and "PCM".
    I know that 2805 shows 2 input channels for stereo, I had a chance to play with it.
    But it's really weird that 3805 does not do that. :confused:
