Disappointed...

TxMyke, Amazon
14 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this because of all of the HDMI inputs and the two Zone system. Zone 2 however, does not play anything you plug into the HDMI connections. I had to hook up my old receiver so I could hook my Apple TV up. I ran it to both receivers. HDMI to this Onkyo and Optical to my other receiver which I hooked up to my Zone 2 speakers. Now that Amazon has added the Cloud Player to Roku, I wanted to use that instead.

Zone 2 Output Issue

Ben, Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver and had it about half way hooked up when I ran across this "gotcha" buried in a footnote on page 67 of the manual... "Only analog input sources are output from the ZONE 2 LINE OUT jacks and ZONE 2 L/R terminals. Digital input sources are not output. If no sound is heard when an input source is selected,verify that the source is connected to an analog input.

Nice, but some flaws!

Christopher P., Newegg
28 September 2012
  • Summary: This could have been a great receiver if only Onkyo would have taken the time to make sure the firmware worked before putting these out on the market. The TX-NR515 has an issue of losing the HDMI output to the main monitor when the receiver is in standby mode for an extended period of time. The only way to restore functionality is to unplug the unit from the wall socket.
  • Pros: Great features for the price/ Very easy to set up/ Nice Sound/ Great GUI Interface
  • Cons: Buggy Firmware/ Loses HDMI OUT No Picture to Main Monitor/ Have to unplug to restore functionality/ Standby Mode Loses HDMI Output

Amazing - when it works

DAVID C., Newegg
13 June 2012
  • Summary: Onkyo is putting out firmware updates but they haven't fixed my issues yet! I love the feature-set on this thing, but if the features don't work, what's the point.
  • Pros: Great features. Great value. Lots of HDMI inputs. Plenty of sound features. Video looks great. Everything looks and sounds great - when it works.
  • Cons: Constantly have to power cycle this thing just to display a normal screen. I literally have to unplug it from the power source and plug it back in. Not only that, but I have to disconnect and reoconnect HDMI from my computer every day in order for it to make the connection. There are PLENTY of other reviews and awful forums where people discuss these very issues.

There are many bugs with this unit

Brewster "Brewster0101", Amazon
15 September 2012
  • Summary: After 4 weeks of owning this unit, its going back...... When it works it works very well, actually its stunning... But it has many issues, some software but some also hardware related that Onkyo aren't really admitting. There is a known issue with the HDMI board not being well made and probably lacking enough power. There are many (many many many) reports of units not out putting a HDMI signal from standby, requiring an unplug to get working again.

etwas fehlt...

Ralf Bormann, Amazon
12 May 2013
  • Summary: Eigentlich ist schon genug zum Gerät geschrieben worden, trotzdem noch einige persönliche Erfahrungen von mir dazu. Der Receiver hatte bei mir keine der anfänglich beschriebenen Kinderkrankheiten mehr. Updates, sei es per Internet bzw. USB funktionierten einwandfrei. Einrichtung nach Ausdruck der kpl. BDA und anschliessendem Setup ohne Probleme möglich. (Ein wenig Kenntnis von der Materie schadet aber trotzdem nicht...

  • Summary: Köpte åt farsgubben pga dubbla hdmi ut för tv och proj. Allt fungerar fint förutom just denna detalj. I instälningsmenyn för bildutmatning kan man välja att aktivera en av de två eller båda samtidigt. Tyvärr fungerar 3D enbart om man använder en av utgångarna åt gången med inställningen "via", inställningsmöjligheten finns även då båda hdmi-ut är aktiverade, men förinställt på auto, utan möjlighet att ändra. En mjukvarubugg alltså.

  • Summary: Trodde jag gjorde ett sving upp på receiver fronten, men ack så jag bedrog mig. Hade Pioneer förut och innan dess Yamaha. Av dessa tre märken så är Onkyo helt klart det sämsta. Både vad det gäller ljud och inställningar.
