I've been on a couple of forums other than here where people with Denon receivers are having problems.


I have a Denon receiver and the same problem. Very frustrating, I thought the convenience of the front HDMI would be perfectly suited for this device but it doesn't work.

I have the Denon AVR-X1000, and just got the NES Classic Edition. I have tried hooking the HDMI to the "Game" (HDMI4) input in back. I then press SETUP, and they only give you an AUDIO choice. Basically it doesn't seem to work on mine. Like others I then had to hook it up directly to the display, which is VERY limited in HDMI inputs. So I have this receiver (which is quite great for audio) but it just doesn't want to pass the NES Classic through. I thought I was doing something wrong, like perhaps somewhere I missed an HDMI setting for the GAME input. But the HDMI Pass-Through setting I believe global on this machine.

There must be some kind of workaround or fix for this, as this is quite ridiculous to not be working with this otherwise great receiver. We need to keep on this.

Unrelated, but lots of complaints about the obvious short controllers... which were designed short so you're near the RESET button. 2 things: I bought 4 of the 6-foot Insignia extension cords and stretched 3 feet into 15 feet for both controllers. To solve the issue with not having to hit RESET.... I purchased an original Wii Classic Controller whose HOME button functions the same as the RESET button on the NES Classic. So I don't have to get up each time to return to the Home screen. Use that one as the Player1 controller and it's worked quite well. Just make sure it is an original Wii controller though, as the Home screen trick apparently doesn't work with the 3rd-party/replicas.

I have a Denon AVR-1613, and I have the same issue. I can't get the NES Classic to work on any of the HDMI ports. It works just fine when plugged directly into either of my two TVs though. Hopefully Denon can issue a fix, but my receiver is pretty old at this point

I have my NES Classic hooked up via HDMI to a Denon 1612 with no issues.

We were fortunate enough to get two of these during the walmart.com daily dumps (thank you gigabit internet service), and it's probably the most enjoyment I've had from a Nintendo console this millennium. The only downside so far is that I'm discovering that my 40 year old reflexes aren't quite as good as my 10 year old reflexes were. I flew through all of these games in a week or two back in the day (even the tough ones like Ninja Gaiden), but they're a bit of a struggle now. I know some people are complaining about input lag with the HDMI connection, but I'm pretty sure the input lag from my brain to my hands is the main culprit.

It's awesome to be able to play crisp, pixel-perfect versions of these games on a 70 inch TV. The short cord is annoying, of course. I tried sitting on the floor to play (about 5 feet away from the TV), but my neck and back weren't too happy with that solution. I may be able to just hook longer hdmi/micro USB cables to get the console all the way to the couch, or maybe I'll look for a controller extension. I haven't been able to source a second controller yet (we are giving the second NES Classic to friends of ours who were looking for one). I ordered some knockoff Wii U classic controller, so we'll see how that works. I also pre-ordered an official controller from gamestop, but I'm dubious that they will actually ship it.

I'm guessing the older receivers are having more luck. I'd still be very happy to see if there's a fix for the newer Denon receivers. Is it a firmware upgrade perhaps?

I would think/hope it could be fixed with firmware. Denon may not even be aware of the issue yet though. We should start calling:

Same - here's to wishing both of us luck, retailers have been cancelling preorders pretty consistently once they get actual shipment quantities.

Local shops here have been getting some restock of the systems, though. Targets around me got 1-2 per store for Dec (lol), and one in my area is stocking the controller as a separate on shelf SKU, it's online order and/or ship-to-store kinda thing.

I can wait... the great restock will appear, and I'll be waiting for him! You'll See!

Since this thing looks way better than virtual console is there any info on what's going on in there for emulation and such?

My second controller finally shipped from Gamestop! In less happy news, Walmart delivered a random pair of pants instead of the second NES Classic we had ordered. I'm thinking somebody in the Walmart warehouse gave themselves a nice Christmas gift... Our friends that we had promised it to were disappointed with the pants.

Wait, the in game controls work fine with a Wii Classic Controller? May have to pick one up! I got one of the consoles for my wife as a Christmas gift but, we haven't been able to find a second controller yet. This may be a great solution. So nice of Nintendo to include 2 player games and then not produce enough extra controllers.

Yes, the Wii Classic controller works for the NES Classic. I chose to get this over a 2nd NES Classic controller (or the wireless ones) because of the Home-button reset feature... which is definitely not on the controllers they give you (It is why they are so short). Only caveat, this feature does not work on the replica Wii controllers that some websites sell, it has to be an original controller that has the "Wii" label on it. Got mine used at Gamestop and it is very good. Also is a much better controller than the original Nintendo ones... nostalgia aside.

The controller I got from Gamestop ending up being an off brand (Yok). I thought I had ordered a Nintendo branded controller, but the good news is that the Yok is more responsive than the Nintendo one.

For information's sake, I was able to run the NES Classic through my Denon 2112 with no issues.

Adding more games

So, turns out there is an "easy" way to add more games (ROMS) to the NES Classic. I was able to add 25 games or so with no issues...well...it didn't like Gold Medal Challenge '92 for some reason and the NES kept giving me a C8 error when turning it on...I removed the offending ROM and all is well.

Do so at your own risk...as this could brick your coveted device.

Been following this one since it popped up last week, seems even easier than modding a Wii or setting up a NES pi box. Hack automatically backs up the kernel and gives you the option to reflash it if something goes wrong, pretty much fool proof...

I still just want 2 %!&$ controllers! Make more already!

He's talking about emulation quality, I'd imagine. It's much better quality than their previous NES emulators that have been utilized on their various Virtual Consoles and on the GameCube.

The NES Classic Edition also holds the price advantage over the Virtual Console. Digitally, it comes with $150 in Virtual Console content out of the box.

Easier than modding a Wii ? Is that even possable ? LOL (I got one handed to me and within 20 min I was running a "modded" game.


Yea, I looked over this (I also dont have one), the largest amont of games were 40 over the orignal 30.... Impressive, if I was to add any, it would 5-10...some titles that were not very hot, I loved a lot back in the day..


but, emulators using USB controllers work fine as well...

Can you even buy these things yet?

Holy crap, Nintendo screwed the pooch with this thing. Here was their chance to make a buck and build some momentum before the switch and the supply issues are so bad I had all but forgotten this thing came out. Nintendo has to realize that emulation is at the point of being mainstream don't they? I mean, I have Chrono Trigger going on my opposite monitor as we speak and the iBuffalo pad I'm using feels as authentic as any of the OEM SNES pads I have hidden away in boxes. And before the ethics police get on me I OWN Chrono Trigger on cartridge so I have no qualms or concerns about legalities while I play this classic.

Way to go Nintendo. You've nintendo'd yourself again.

Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

NPD reports that December sales were up 14% compared to November, when it debuted by selling out with 196,000 units sold at launch.

So they're getting more of them out there with over 200,000 units shipped to the US in the month of December and deliveries slated to continue for the time being.

They're just not sticking around for long when they appear, a testament to just how misjudged and mismanaged this product introduction was.

If you look at my other post in this thread, I'm one of the first to admit that there are other alternatives (and I now also have a 3D printed smaller NES case in addition to the SNES case I mentioned before for my Raspberry Pi), but I don't know how anyone could say this with a straight face. The iBuffalo one is lighter / feels cheaper, and is just looser all-around... in the d-pad and in the buttons.  Actually, I'm hoping to see the official NES Classic controller become more widely available so I can put the guts of a generic USB NES controller into it. None of these other clones feel quite right.

My face is so straight right now. O___________________________________O

Just to entertain you I bust out three old OEM pads. Besides the extra buttons on the iBuffalo the pad is all but identical in terms of shape and weight (to the euro spec pads-- the US spec pads have those funky concave top row buttons). There is a difference in the responsiveness of the buttons and d-pad but the iBuffalo is clearly superior here. No offense to Nintendo of course: those OEM pads are now 20+ years old and the membranes are oh-so tired. The iBuffalo feels how I imagine the SNES pads felt when they were new.

Looks like they are finally shipping these again. Several Target stores in my area had them available this morning. I picked one up at 11:15 a.m., no lines, no standing outside at 7:00 a.m., no fuss. And most importantly at the regular price of $59.99.

Good. Hopefully this end the ebay scalpers charging exorbitant prices, a practice I absolutely loathe. Though knowing Nintendo, they'll probably only ship a limited batch, run into more stock issues, and the cycle will repeat.
