Terrible HDMI pass-thru

Chris Andrews, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: I have had this for 8 months thinking Onkyo was a great product but the HDMI pass thru has never worked properly. The service center replaced a board they said was bad, but the problem persists. This may make my yard sale to help buy another brand...

Very happy overall

  • Summary: I did my research before replacing my old (failed) receiver, so I knew I could be faced with some trials getting the firmware working correctly on this unit...and sure enough, doing the first upgrade was pretty much a pain. But I found the right kind of USB memory stick, finally figured out how to place the correct firmware on it, and was able to successfully upgrade to a firmware package that works pretty well.

terrible quality control

l2, Amazon
21 May 2013
  • Summary: Reviews of this product are understandably mixed. Buy it because it has great features for the price, but don't buy it if you want a painless experience. The first one I got from Amazon was DOA. It would not produce sound (either through the speaker outputs or the headphone jack) no matter what I did. Tried updating the firmware, rewiring the inputs, etc with no luck. Returned it to Amazon, which is a big hassle because of the size of the box.

HDMI Output quit working within 2 months

Dr. Van Nostrum, Amazon
17 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased an Onkyo TX-NR414 on March 4, 2013. By May 1st, 2013, the HDMI output was not working. I tried differnet cables and different devices for input. I reconfigured and reconfigured again. I read many reviews on-line where this appeared to be a firwmare problem in 2012 which was fixed with the latest firwmare (which I did not have despite buying the product well after the latest firmware release).

great system for the price, connectivity is awesome

  • Summary: Definitely get the Onkyo 2 remote app, and connect the stereo to your network. You can do anything with it. From Pandora to speaker calibration, setting up inputs and outputs, audio characteristic formatting... its all there. Would be nice to have A and B front speakers, but the 5.1 is really good. Haven't tried the 2nd zone yet, but this stereo is a great addition to my household.

Onkyo aims high, but misses the target

L. Adams, Amazon
7 April 2013
  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I was very excited to get this receiver up and running. It has so many bells and whistles that I could not believe it was so cheap. Well, my excitement quickly turned to disappointment after a few hours of use. I'll run down the list of failures in order of importance here: 1) HDMI PASS-THROUGH -- The video pass-through via HDMI would randomly cut out to a black screen.
