Connections with Samsung TVs don't always work as expected. At the very least, you must also have the Samsung Anynet+ set to ON.

Right now I have a brand new high speed HDMI cable connected from HDMI 4 on the Samung TV to the monitor out of the Denon receiver. Both of these ports are labelled ARC. I have also enabled HDMI control on the Denon receiver. Which after doing this I was able to select "receiver" as the TV sound output via the Samsung speaker settings.

Here are the HDMI settings I have on the receiver:

Audio Lip Sync: On
HDMI Audio Out: AMP
HDMI Control: Yes
Standby Source: Last
P. Off Control: All

and my Samsung speaker settings:

TV Sound Output: Receiver

While using the volume up/down on the Samsung remote I see on screen next to the speaker icon "AVR-2112". So it seems like some part of the audio return control is working.

I have even tried unplugging all the the HDMI inputs I have going into the receiver (i.e. cable box, bluray, apple tv) with no luck.

Using an optical cable going from the tv to receiver and that seems to work. However I really would prefer to get the audio return control working.

Is there anything else I can try? Is there something else I need to set on the receiver? Do I need to set the input selector on the receiver to a particular one?

I thought this was going to be easy but after spending a few hours on it I almost ready to admit defeat. I wonder if the issue is with the denon receiver.

thanks for any help,
Should be working if you are getting the speaker icon.
Is your AVR on TV input? Make sure nothing is assigned to TV input also.

Hi,

When I'm listening to music (via a 1st Gen AppleTv made into a music server running XMBC) via HDMI and I turn off my projector which is my main display (also hooked up via HDMI), There is a drop out right when the projector finishes it's turning off cycle. In other words ... when it stops running it's fan and certifies itself as "off" it seems it forces some type of refresh of the whole HDMI bus or something resulting in a drop out and a little noise.

Maybe this is normal... I certainly don't know. Cables are all good I think.... I am going to hook up the music sever via TOSlink to see if I can avoid this problem.

If I were to enable the audio to be output via the HDMI to my TV instead of the 3312 AVR's speaker outputs, what's the supported output audio format? only downmixed stereo? Can the HDMI send out multichannel PCM? Or it only pass through?

As is the case with any HDMI switch, it will pass whatever the HDMI sync (ie TV) can accept.

I am planning to use the multi-zone function of the 3312...probably hook up a ceiling speaker in my kitchen. As there is only one speaker, it will be mono only. How do I downmix stereo to mono for this single ceiling speaker?

You're fortunate in that the 3312CI is the lowest model that has an AMP ASSIGN setting of "Zone 2/3(M)" which you can use and then connect the speaker to either the SBL (Zone 2) or SBR (Zone 3) speaker posts. Also, ensure it is a "mono" speaker as some single speakers have stereo speaker posts.

Sound from a different source than selected

I noticed this recently on my 3312 but just getting around to posting the question. I have multiple av sources hooked up via hdmi. Fios and appletv and sony bd.

What happens is if I've selected the appletv, watch something but power off the source, but not the avr, I can the. Hear very quietly the audio from my fios boxes selected channel...it's very quiet so I only noticed it while I was standing 2 feet away from my speaker rocking my newborn baby.

Anyway to remedy this? My avr runs super hot so I'm hoping every little bit of tuning will cool it down incrementally.

Try doing a soft reset by unplugging the power cord for 10 minutes to see if that resolves the issue.

It will run hot at idle no matter what. You need to put a couple of low RPM 140mm fan's on top. It makes a huge difference on mine.

Put mine on TOP of the cab; no need for fan. It is near the Refrigerated Air, for when the oven is on outside..

My other AVR 1912 runs sooo cool due to not having any video processing.
That video processing wastes so power an produces way to much heat.
My 3312 uses like 90 watts with nothing connected. I will measure the 1912 later.
Still debating on whether to get a atmos model. Eco mode probably saves a lot of power.

It does indeed. ECO mode reduces power consumption 30-40% on average as well as reducing the temp about 5 degrees F.

Right now, I'm only driving 3 speakers with the 3312, when in HT; 2, most of the time, for Music.

Rest I sent out to 2 old AVRs: creative 13 channel HT.

Without driving any speakers your 3312CI is likely drawing about 85W-90W (maybe only 10W more at reference volume) which is what my X5200W draws. In ECO mode, it only draws about 60W (and 65-70W at reference).

Ppreciate the suggestions. Still strange it does this. I first noticed it when I heard pandora playing while my fios box was off but receiver still on. I went and turned off pandora.

I have been using a Denon 1712 for the last two and half years and everything was great.

Until yesterday it stopped sending video signals to my projector.

I tested every equipment and cable. Now my main focus is on the "HDMI output" port.

I suspect something is wrong with that port.

will it be possible that I messed up some settings so the video signals won't go through the "HDMI out" port?

or the port maybe physically broken?

Anyone has any idea?

Thank you.

Try doing a soft reset (unplug power cord for at least 10 minutes) and if no joy, a microprocessor reset (p. 96 Owner's manual). Also try replacing HDMI cable going from the AVR to the TV.

Hi jdsmoothie,

Thank you for your reply. I have tried all the three things you suggested, but with no luck.

When I play a movie on my computer, the sound still plays through the speakers, but my TV/projector just shows no signals are received from the AVR.

I have checked and all the cables are good.

So is there any other possibilities out there?

Thank you so much.

Try disconnecting all HDMI cables to/from the AVR. Reset the AVR at least 4-5 times in a row. Reconnect the cables. If still no joy, leave the unit unplugged over night and try again the next day. If still no joy, as the unit is likely out of warranty, check with you credit card issuer as they provide and additional year of warranty for free.

If you have tried all the suggestion, then most likely its the HDMI board that has gone bad. My 2312CI's HDMI board was fried recently. The cost of repair is almost 70% of the new unit so didn't go for it. I have now connected sound via optical to AVR and video to projector using HDMI. I have recived feedback form few local vendors here(I am outside US) that Denon of late is having quality issue esp. with HDMI boards.

An HDMI board that was "fried" is more likely the result of a power surge to the unit either from a nearby lightning strike or from your home's electrical system.
