    I understand that six phonos must be connected between the 3801 & my DVD-A player (on order) for the DVD-A signal to be accessed ... What do you then tell the 3801 so it accesses the correct signal ? I'm sure I could find out by trial and error but if someone already knows I'd be much obliged (and wont look like a thicko in front of the missus <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> )<br />TIA - Paul

    A real case of RTFM!<br />Why not try the 'Ext In' button on your remote. This directs the 5.1 channels to their respective outputs and also passes the signals to the sub pre-out.

    Ian - Would that be TFM for the Denon or TFM for the DVD-A player which I haven't got yet ?<br />TFM for the Denon does cover "playback using the external input (ext in) jacks" on P47 but this assumes knowledge that you had but I didnt ... Now that you have kindly set me straight I need not bother you further <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

    Ok...I accept your defence <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

    You do right to check the manual also as I haven't tried this myself.

    You may find this useful;<br /><a href="http://www.del.denon.com./catalog/pdfs/AVR3801DFU.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.del.denon.com./catalog/pdfs/AVR3801DFU.pdf</a><br />For a .pdf version of the manual. US but pretty much the same minus RDS on the tuner.

    Super amp by the way...let us know how it sounds with DVD-A. Which player are you using?

    Ian - Yes it is a good receiver - I took ages to decide between a Tosh 500 & a Pan 71 and opted for the latter (which I have just ordered)<br />I will let you know how my small (but rising) <br />DVD-A collection sounds in due course - A M8 has their "original" DVD-A player & it sounds GR8 so I'm optimistic i will be a happy camper ... Paul

    BTW I have the pdf manual the "original" was too small to read IMO - Hope I can find the Pan 71 pdf soon as well (not on the US Panasonic site yet)
