Summary: Sorry to be the first to have a bad review. Please note that I have ordered a replacement unit as I believe this specific unit to be bad (at least I hope so). The unit I recieved from Amazon was in great shape, seemed ok, until I tried to connect any HDMI 1.4a source to it. ALL HDMI 1.4a sources have random video and audio flicker. HDMI 1.3 sources work fine, no flicker whatsoever. I have tested three 1.4a sources including both Panasonic and Samsung 3D Blu-Ray players.
Summary: Like the other reviewers here, I thought this was an excellent product. However, mine stopped working. So I went onto the Onkyo forums, to find it filled with people having the same problem: the sound chip on the HDMI board dies and the whole thing stops working. Everyone has the same symptoms. There are dozens of ranting people, all accusing Onkyo of having a systemic problem that they are not addressing. Shame really.
Summary: Meine Bewertung fällt insgesamt leider negativ aus. Zwei gravierende Fehler hat dieses Gerät bei mir aufgezeigt: 1. kein Audio Signal über HDMI vom Samsung TV ( nur über optisches Kabel wenn überhaupt) 2. hab das Gerät Mitte 2011 gekauft. Nun ist es defekt. Der zweite Punkt wiegt natürlich schwerer. Keine Kaufempfelung meinerseits.
