Hi, Using AVR-X2800 w/Epson LS800 Projector. Connected LS800 to ARC HDMI. I connect a PS5 to the Game HDMI port and select Game on the Remote, I am unable to get any video to the projector. PS5 directly to projector plays fine w/audio thru projector. ??

Asked by: RickyC
Hello, for troubleshooting, first ensure that the Receiver's HDMI setting is configured correctly. In the settings, navigate to Video, then 4K/8K signal format, and choose the compatible signal format. If your LS800 supports 4K/120Hz, select 8K enhanced. If it doesn't support 4K/120Hz, try both Standard or Enhanced until the video signal is established. If you need further assistance, please contact our Denon support team by visiting https://www.denon.com/en-us/support/contact-us.html or by calling Denon Product Support at 800-497-8921 from Mon - Sat, 10AM - 7PM EST.

AVR X2800H - What is actual dimension for height from bottom of rubber feet to top? My cabinet dimensions do not move and I have seen two separate dimensions for this online. also can 2 separate subwoofers be attached? Can these be calibrated separately?

Asked by: docr
Hello, the height from the bottom of the feet to the top of the receiver is 6.6 inches. The antennas can either be positioned vertically or horizontally. With Antenna: Horizontal: (W x D x H) in Inches 17.1 w X 13.4 d X 6.6 h With Antenna: Vertical: (W x D x H) in Inches 17.1 w X 13.4 d X 9.3 h The AVR-X2800H will accommodate two subwoofers; however, for independent measurements, look to the AVR-X3800H receiver, as it will accommodate four independent subwoofers.

Can the AVR-X2800H be connected (wifi, or bluetooth?) to two Android phones. Ours would be in a cabinet (prefer not to have to install an optical repeater) so I hope the Denon phone apps and Google Home would pretty well provide full feature control.

Asked by: ODMullen
Hello, Yes - more than one (Android) device at a time can operate the AVR-X2800H via the HEOS or the AVR app, although neither will offer full control of every wirelessly controlled feature on your AVR. Full control is had with the AVR's stock remote control, so I would suggest purchasing something like one of these, as they are designed to assist when your AVR's IR revceiver is out of line of sight: https://www.amazon.com/sspa/click?ie=UTF8&spc=MTozMTQxNTM0Nzk3MzM0NTc5OjE3MTY5MDM5MjM6c3BfYXRmOjMwMDE3MTM3MzkxNjMwMjo6MDo6&url=%2FCable-Matters-Infrared-Extender-Repeater%2Fdp%2FB014EDRH3G%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1_sspa%3Fcrid%3D1HP98RCQ3I6MX%26dib%3DeyJ2IjoiMSJ9.bHNzpTitO2C9FOP5U8Q_GIqnpDYSlprS49nCB-YpUy-i3soI6jwdk5kEqZQRbpxcQO9ll3gSYV-fPMumTp_YMFKC8hlDsCWFybP0khbHiEYEIDNSYI8cptqbZRFjV-SASBtvPUNgQHje-6QUvHvnk5ny7gzccocoQr0Mb6ITp4IoKSjOlwxFrK3-QDJ-m-WOFY8wBTCnB6yVNjh0cuU0-BcHzBjj7lwzK3l6xb88M0A.wC3OAZfeRKj7-5KdoIoPJcDxNUeAWOZyKRd-0olvQaQ%26dib_tag%3Dse%26keywords%3Dir%2Brepeater%26qid%3D1716903923%26sprefix%3Dir%2Brepate%252Caps%252C157%26sr%3D8-1-spons%26sp_csd%3Dd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGY%26psc%3D1

is there a way to configure the zone-2 and airplay such that if the amp is on standby and I choose airplay, the zone-2 will turn on and play without me having to go to the heos app or use the remote?

Asked by: thisispete
Hello, Unfortunately, it is not possible to do as you suggest with any of our AVRs, including the AVR-X2800H

When listening to HEOS music, my subwoofer never engages. It works fine when watching TV, Movies, etc. I mainly use the "Pure Direct" mode. Is that the problem? If so, which mode would engage the sub? I believe I've tried all.

Asked by: Frankie1
Hello Frankie1, There is a way to have the subwoofer on with your AVR-X2800H - regardless of which mode or source you are using. This link shows you how to do this. A few rows down you will find a line which reads "I want to have the subwoofer always output audio.". Then you will need to click on the link on the same row: https://manuals.denon.com/AVRX2800H/NA/EN/DRDZSYkefkkvou.php

Hello, Can I build Dolby 5.1.2 config with X2800? Is it also possible to pass L and R channels to external Hi-Fi amp. from X2800 preamp out? Thanks, Yurii

Asked by: Yurii V
Hello, The AVR-X2800 can be configured for 5.1.2. This link takes you to a page of the manual which details how this is achieved: https://manuals.denon.com/AVRX2800H/NA/EN/DRDZSYiltbhifm.php If you wish to have the ability to add an external power amplifier, a different AVR would be required as the AVR-X2800H does not offer front left and right pre-outs. The AVR-X1800H has front left and right pre-outs, and the AVR-X3800H has a whole bank of pre-outs. Here is a link with our X Series AVR models: https://www.denon.com/en-us/category/x-series-av-receivers/

Hello, I want to use this product with kef r3 meta speakers as part of the set-up. Can it drive these speakers to their full potential? And is there a dedicated stereo mode for listening to just hi res music? Also is there tidal connectivity?

Asked by: hello
Hello, The AVR-X2800H is comfortable with the specified speaker load of the KEF R3 Metas. We haven't tested the R3 Metas ourselves, so we are unable to say if the AVR-X2800H can drive the R3 Metas to their full potential. If in doubt, the AVR-X3800H is the next model up. Not only does it offer more clout in it's power delivery, but it also had pre-outs. This will allow you to add optional external power amplification should you so desire. Either way, you have a 60 day return window if you are not completely satisfied. There is a dedicated stereo mode for high res music. There's also Direct Mode which by-passes the porcessor completely channeling the raw source feed through the shortest signal path. Tidal is available using the free HEOS app included with the AVR-X2800H, as are many other popular streaming services.
