Summary: I bought the Denon AVR-1312 in February and had it installed. The unit worked fine until Friday, August 24, 2012. Then, it decided that it would no longer provide video to my TV. How do I know that it's the Receiver ???
Summary: Only 1 Optical and 1 coax audio inputs, but won't pass through HDMI video & when it does, it's only for 10 minutes or so. Gets worse by the week. Second completely unreliable Denon receivers owned now. Why did I come back for seconds? Good reviews. Oops.
this receiver has some pretty serious problems with HDMI pass through

Summary: As others have stated, this receiver has some pretty serious problems with HDMI pass through, probably because of a handshake problem. The only way I could get my HTPC to work was to pass the audio through the audio receiver with an optical cable and run the video straight to my TV with an HDMI...
Summary: I made the mistake of not fully considering previous negative reviews and purchased this item based on price. As noted in previous reviews, I had trouble getting *any* HDMI device to work with this receiver. I checked manual and verified connections multiple times.
Summary: I purchased this Denon AVR-1312 5.1 because it seemed like a great value for the price paid. It's been 45 days since purchased and the sound skips and at times is completely gone and I have to turn it off and back on to get it to work for a while.
Summary: I bought this receiver for the HDMI pass-through. When I hooked it up I noticed that the picture on my TV was pixelated during fast moving scenes. When I plugged the HDMI back into the my Xbox directly it went away. I was really looking forward to this receiver because I thought Denon was the best.
Summary: This receiver functioned well for about a year but then the power button glowed red and the receiver stopped working. Reading the instructions revealed that the red glow might indicate that the speaker wires are shorted or the receiver overheated, neither of which was true.
Summary: It was a nice inexpensive unit at first. Easy to hook up components. Simple features. Nice remote. Power amp became a issue at 12 months. Volume diminished. Then it slowly died around 18 months. On/off/standby would start flashing red. Turning it off and on several times would help then nothing.
Summary: I had actually bought this unit to replace a similar Pioneer model, (lightning had fried the HDMI inputs *sigh*) I went ahead and purchased one based on the reviews here. Let me start by saying that I am not one of those reviewers who give terrible ratings because the unit came late or was scratched...
