Do you think a reset on the AVR is worth trying?
I have the same issue, although I think I have complicated it by having a 2-1 splitter to go to 2 TVs for HDMI.
I can turn the Denon off and get no sound through the speakers of either TV set... sometimes. Last night, I turned it off and the sound came back on after about 1 minute on both sets. I have no idea what was different. I even turned one TV on this morning and had sound until I turned the second one on. Bzt - no video (thanks HDCP handshake!). I turned the Denon on and everything came on (except audio to speakers since it was going through the 2310 as expected). I turned the receiver off, waited my minute, waited a few more, and I never had sound coming from the speakers with the unit on standby again.
I'm going to play around with what sound mode I have the 2310 on when I turn it off to see if it has any bearing (i.e. 7.1 vs Dolby PLIIx vs DD vs Stereo). If I find anything that consistently outputs sound with the receiver off, I'll update everyone - and also be checking to see if anyone found the magic bullet as well if I should fail.
Edit: I was able to get sound again. I had to change to a non-HD channel and audio then came on. I don't know if it was trying to process a DD track from the DVR which the non-HDs don't have generally and is why it didn't get passed or if something else is at play. Interesting find and I'll have to play with the system more to see what works and what won't.
