Beware that Onkyo AV receivers have well-known HDMI board problems

Summary: For what it's worth -- I also have had problems with my TX-NR5008 (previous flagship model). The sound dies after about two years due to a well-known HDMI board failure issue. It's now happened to me twice. But don't take my word for it, Google it and decide for yourself. Or check out the Onkyo tech support forums.
Summary: I find it interesting that so many people have down voted my review here. Wouldn't others like to know the truth concerning others experiences with a company and their products? Anyway - I bought the 5008 from Amazon in May 2010. ~2 years later - no sound. It appears that a lot of people are having this problem with multiple models of Onkyo products. Google Onkyo no sound. This is my second top of the line purchase from Onkyo.
