Summary: Purchased my unit fall of 2010, no issues until 4 months ago...as expected, my turn to experience the no sound issue. At first, I was able to turn off and turn on the unit with success on sound returning. That worked 2-3x, but now that doesn't work either.
Mass Death of HDMI Daughter/Control Boards in Onkyo Receivers

Summary: I own two Onkyo receivers, a TX-SR706, I bought in 2007 which I now use in my office to drive my older 5.1 system and a TX-NR1008 that I bought in February of 2011 which I have in my living room driving my home theater.
Summary: I love this unit so far, only 2 main downfalls for me. 1.) Within that month one of the RCA inputs stopped functioning. Furthermore, Onkyo claimed ANY authorized dealer on their website can warranty repair, except all of them are refusing because I didn't buy from them???
Summary: I bought this receiver specifically for multi zone capability.....After a lot of back and forth on the phone with tech support and emails I simply concluded there was no way to watch a 7 channel source in the main room and listen to a 2 channel analog source in zone 2 without dropping two speakers...
Great price for features, if you want them all but still lacking basics

Summary: After years away from the nuances of the home audio field, and receivers specifically, I recently returned with the purchase of this Onkyo to discover what has and hasn't much changed. I found this promising unit a very well made physical box, with solid knobs and plenty of features for the price.
