We've been upgrading all our equipment lately. Samsung HP-R4252 plasma display, DirecTV HD DVR (looks just like the old Hughes, so I'm guessing it's also made by Hughes), and yesterday brought home a Denon AVR-3806. So far, 2 problems: 1) DVR -> HDMI -> receiver -> HDMI -> TV = no audio from receiver or TV. As far as I can tell, everything is configured correctly. I set the receiver to use the HDMI-1 input as the audio and video input for the DBS source. Now I forget where it is in the Denon's goofy menus, but there's a place to set the output to AMP or TV. Neither setting makes a difference. What could be wrong here? 2) Old Sony DVD using either the composite or S-video output (no component) connected to the receiver will result in incorrect colors. Reds come out yellow. I tried connecting the receiver to the TV with HDMI, component, and composite. Ideas? I sure miss the old days when there was 1 option for audio connectivity and 1 option for video connectivity. Some time later... Hmm, after reading some other threads, it looks like the 3806 just ain't up to the task of doing everything it should be doing with HDMI. Looks like I should return it and either get a Yamaha now (I think the one that's $999 can do what I need) or wait for the 2807. Opinions?
