Hey guys, I have my WII plugged into the HDP component inputs, but I also have by WDTV plugged into the HDP HDMI input. When I use my Harmony remote activity to start my WDTV, everything works fine; it chooses that HDMI input, but when I choose the WII activity, it automatically selects HDMI. If I switch my WDTV on, I get video and audio from it, and when I switch it off, I get just audio from the WII.

Could someone please help me with a proper setup process, so when I go to use the WII, the receiver will select component automatically. I would assume there is a way to do this when two different cables are plugged into the same input. I can't even figure out how to do it manually through the GUI, and I had to plug the WII into the back of the TV.

Thank you very much.

I have not tried to plug two sources into the same input, so I can only suggest you try something. Even though each HDMI input has two different names, I do not know if the 3808 sees them as independent inputs. – I have not experimented with that.

Having said that, I would select the HDP input (HDMI # whatever) and go into the input set up screen. Turn off the auto select feature and select HDMI. Then select that same HDMI input as HDP, but under the second name (I do not recall what this is). There are discrete commands for the 3808 to do this by the way.) When you have that input selected, go back to the input set up screen and make sure Auto is off and then select Component under the video select screen. Then you do the same for audio.

I think that if you do this, each time you use the discrete commands for the inputs, it will remember which one to switch to – HDMI or Component. Sorry for the crappy instructions. I’m not near my 3808 right now, but will be later today of you need more help and no one else gets back to you with better instructions.

Hi Michael,

Thank you very much for the response. I just checked the manual, and it states that you can switch between Auto, HDMI, Digital, Analog and EXT in. Following your instructions, would I select "Analog" for the WII (component).

Thanks again

I think you are looking at audio input selection. For this you would still want digital. You select the video input in the 'video select' screen.

Do you have more than four sources?

Yeah, somewhere in the denon menu there is an option for assigning sound to a specific source. I had to do this for my xbox 360 that is connected with component cables for video and optical for audio. In the denon menu somewhere I had to select the appropriate sound source (optical audio 1 for example) that went with the component input of interest.

... everything. Somewhere there is an option that randomly re-sets my HDMI in to nothing. Since its only the PS3 I figure Sony pays Denon royalties for this very special feature.

For sources I have the Oppo, WDTV, CD player, DVD player, satellite, and the Wii. The Wii cable has component video and l/r audio connections.

Wait a minute? The wii doesn't have 5 channel surround sound? Holy crap Nintendo needs to join the modern era.

OK –
Which sources have HDMI other than the Oppo BD93? Also, what are your other source output options (cabling) of each source? That would help me to suggest which goesouta should go to the appropriate 3808 goesinta.

The DVD player and WDTV are HDMI, and my satellite only has component.
