Most AVRs don't output anything via HDMI if they are not on.

To clarify, yourPS# is connected to your Denon AVR, and the Denon connected to your TV. If the AVR is on, you get video to the TV and audio out the speakers connected to your Denon. If you turn you AVR off, you get no audio video.

Is this correct?

Nope, HDMI scaling is an active process, so it needs electricity. Can you send me a link of where you see this "pass-through" mentioned, and I might be able to shed more light on what it means?

That just means that a 1080p source input via hdmi will be output via HDMI without additional scaling/processing, but the AVR still needs to be on to get video.

What instances are you using the PS3 that you don't want your speakers on? You might consider an HDMI splitter to feed the AVR and TV separately.
