Summary: I bought my 1008 in march of 2011. once it was al set up it worked fantastic and i couldn't have been happier. i was using a: 1)Direc tv hd dvr receiver 2) PS3 3)Mac Mini Computer and was controlling 3 fully independent zones.
Summary: The product works great - for about 6 months. Then expect to be without the unit for 6-8 weeks (possibly more) for the "no-service" center to diagnos and repair problem, only to wait for the possibility of it to break again, only this time out of warranty.
Summary: First of all, I am not an electronics wiz so I had a friend of mine that does AV engineering for a living help me with the set up. I have 3 TVs in my mancave and one of the primary reasons I spent the extra money on this model was because of the 2 HDMI outputs.
Summary: I'm not going to cover what's already been said, but I have a few things to add. The input selectors on the remote and front panel of the receiver are a stroke of genius! It makes it possible for even my mother (no disrespect intended, but she just doesn't get technical things!
Summary: The good: BD to 1080p display is great. Surround sound calibration is sweet. The not so good: Composite video up-converted by the receiver to HDMI has flicker. Not a huge problem, but I had better quality running a separate composite video cable.

Summary: EDIT: Downgraded from 5 to 2 stars for spectacular warranty service failure on the part of Onkyo. See below. You know how it is. Take a look at your entertainment area. How many pieces of hardware are sitting there? A TV, a cable box, maybe DirecTV; a CD player, maybe an iPod dock. DVD player?
