Faulty HDMI Board - "recalled but not really"

Rob, Amazon
8 January 2015
  • Summary: Was an okay receiver for a while, nothing special, hard to configure and get everything "just right" I know it's discontinued now, but wanted to post this regardless... I was just hit by the HDMI/Network board issue - just google for "TX-NR609 No Audio No Network" Talking to the people at onkyo and...

broke just after two years no video using hdmi passthrough

G B, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: Well the received worked well for the first two years. Then suddenly the picture went out on the tv. It appears the problem is the hdmi passthrough circuitry goes bad. Unfortunately now that I have researched this problem I have found this is a common problem with Onkyo Receivers.

Amazon Customer "Cycle Newbie", Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: Well, after 25 months, my sound went out just like the others. I have ordered the following capacitors to replace them myself for the HDMI board. This isn't acceptable and I won't be purchasing another Onkyo product anytime soon.

No sound after 26 months!

Leann P Gage, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: The unit is just over the 2 year warranty. It's our central home theater unit and has performed beautifully until now. We loved it. From what I'm reading, it sounds like I'm having the same HDMI card failure many others have had. I'm beginning to work with Onkyo service now. Stay tuned...

I just joined the club

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 September 2013
  • Summary: 22 months in with quite a few intermittent HDMI "glitches". Now I have zero sound from any HDMI source. Powering off and waiting fixed it for a bit. Then I did a firmware upgrade and it was OK again for a week or so. Now I am back to being dead in the water.

Amazing... until it stops working.

Albert Delre, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • Summary: This receiver worked perfectly for 20 months. Until suddenly it just stops working... It has power and the settings menu works. However, audio or video from any device is no longer working. I see a lot of negative reviews about them breaking down around the 18-24 month mark, and sadly its all true.

After 17 months it just stopped sending video to the TV

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: I had been very happy with this product since the purchase back in March 2012. Now, 17 months later the unit just stopped sending video to the TV. If I leave it turned off for a day I can get video for about 3-4 hours but then it cuts out again.
