I have never been able to get TV sound through my Denon 3802. The DVD sounds tremendous, but no TV sound. The first try was with RCA cables with my satellite and no dice. I tried different inputs and made the on screen set up adjustments to the TV/DBS input on the reciever, and still nothing. That didn't bother me too much, as my TV has pretty good sound and I didn't feel like I was missing out on much. I just got comcast cable with a HDTV DVR, and with all of the Dolby Digital sound being broadcast I would love to hear it through my system, so I can get sound to match the great picture. I used the optical cable that I know works from my DVD and hooked it from the DVR to the optical 2 spot on the reciever. After making the correct set up adjustments to get TV/DBS on optical 2, I still have no sound. Same when I switch it to optical 1, which I know works since I run my DVD through that. The face of the reciever says TV/DBS analog, and I get no sound. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
