Summary: I've had this unit for approximately 1 year. The good part is that the audio and video through this receiver work well: HDTV picture looks great and the surround sounds great. I only use the HDMI inputs and outputs, but they work fine. I have another issue with the unit: it runs hot. I have a dedicated fan behind the unit that blows air underneath it. As long as the fan is on, the unit is quite warm.
Summary: I got this receiver as a Christmas gift Dec. 07. It is in the service shop after a week of service due to overwhelming smell coming from receiver when turned on. I described the smell to JVC customer service as "acrid, smokey, toxic, headache causing smell". The unit is operational, but just not possible to be in the same room with it when its on.
Summary: I received this stereo on 11/29/06 as promised. I really liked the sound from my computer. A wonderful idea!!!! I just wish other manufactures would follow suit. Out the box, my HDMI worked flawlessly. However, when I hooked up my DVD player, I got sound but no picture. When I hooked up my VCR, the same thing happened. I called JVC tech support and the first tier could not help me so I was told the second tier support would call me back in 2 hours.
