Summary: Awesome receiver is all I can say. Replacing my (still working after 13 years!) Sony DR945 receiver. Unfortunately, it doesn't 'upscale' from say component in to HDMI out. Ah well, knew that when I bought it (reading reviews works when you buy a big-ticket item!). Also got the usb wi-fi receiver to set up my international radion stations. Only 'weird' thing was: I connected the laptop to PC in (via HDMI) and it worked.
