    Hi - I can't get any sound out of my 3806 from my PS3 via HDMI - only via a digital optical lead.

    Has anyone else managed to get sound via just the HDMI lead? If so, what settings do you have?

    Thanks in advance,:smashin:

    Can't speak for the PS3 end of things but on the 3806 make sure that in the HDMI In Assign menu you have the audio option set to AMP.

    Might also be worth checking that your 3806 has the latest firmware. They released an updated one recently.

    Tick the Ja in the box then Weiter to go to the drop down menu for the various models. From there, select the colour of your unit (Schwarz - Black, Silber - Silver) then key in your Serial Number and press Daten Senden to see if any updates are available.

    Jase -thanks for the advice - I've checked and it does need an update - nice one!

    I've downloaded the the update and the pdf in French - my school french was a few years ago now! - but I gather I need a rs232C cable connected between my laptop & denon 3806.

    However, I'm not clear on whether the denon needs to be on (green light round stby button) or in stdby (red) when I start the utility - any idea?

    Thanks in advance

    I wouldn't like to take a guess and knacker your unit so hopefully one of the other members will be able to clarify what you need to do. :)

    Edit. Have a look at this post as it tells you the procedure to follow:-
