Dear All, I just received my AVR-2308 and spent some time trying to set-up the theater and failed. Looks like I completely screwed-up everything . Currently I have: DVD/CD player: Denon DVD-1930 AVR: Denon AVR-2306 TV: Panasonic HD ready LCD Audio: 5 nobrand speakers Cables: HDMI QED and VDH Extra video-audio: I'm planing to connect my notebook to receiver via s-video and rca cables. I connect DVD with AVR and AVR with TV with HDMI cables. Currently the situation is the following: 1) I can't listen to audio if stereo/direct/pure d. modes set on receiver ; 2) When player run SACD, receiver shows "unknown format" in input info (and produce no sound) ; 3) TV picture always has some colored noise (small horizontal colored lines) ; 4) Although TV manual says that it can run 1080p, receiver thinks that 1080i is the max resolution. I think the best option is to reset all settings and start all over. How can I do that ? Should I get digital cables to connect audio out from dvd to audio-in in receiver and directly connect dvd and tv by hdmi? How can I enable pre-out output ? Any advice would be appreciated. Alexei.
