Summary: HI I purchased this receiver on June 29, 2012. I paired it with Polk Audio RM705 5.1 It worked perfectly till last week. & from Last week suddenly there is no audio output from Left surround channel . I checked the speaker by attaching on different channel , the speaker is ok . I checked the wire connection , replaced the wire also & made sure that there is no issue in wire & connectivity .
Summary: I bought and lavishly reviewed an Onkyo awhile back here on Amazon. Little did I know that these units had a faulty HDMI board that failed. Its all over the internet. Also on the internet are instructions that work to fix it (some times). I soldered in the updated capacitors and lo and behold......it still didn't work. So, no home theater, the Onkyo on the curb with a "FREE" sign on it. Hopefully it will get recycled. Don't have the same hope for the Onkyo executives.
