Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
Which model server do you have?
That is not really possible on that model. The 1 model only has analog outputs, no digital output option is available.
So you can use the red/white analog stereo connections,
or you could upgrade to the 2/3 models which do have digital audio outputs available.
There are options for an external converter box to adapt analog to optical, but there would be no net benefit to it, as the audio quality can't be improved at all after it has been downconverted to analog in the first place.
Okay that is a different situation then.
on opt 2 you need to set the denon to the the TV/DBS mode (by default, unless you've changed the input assignments).
By default it is under tv/dbs.
You may also need to use the INPUT MODE button (bottom left of the display), repeatedly, to cycle through the options until you get to opt/dig mode.
You can have it on Auto, or on optical/digital (just not ana). You may have to hit the ext in button first, then the Input Mode.
The source mode still needs to be on tv/dbs (unless you've changed it).
You may need to go into the denon setup menu, under input assign, and then you'll see options for each port. Set the opt 2 to whatever you want it to be used under for the fusion (cd, tv, dvd, etc). Make sure it is set to the right source, then try again with adjusting that input mode setting, if needed.
It would be a good idea as well to test that same port and settings with another device (dvd player, cable box, etc) just to make sure everything is performing as intended on the denon.
That would isolate if any remaining issues are external (bad cable, missing setting on the fusion, etc).
You're very welcome, and best of luck to you.
