Summary: I have read lots of reviews from one to five stars, but decided to take a chance despite some reviews stating similar problems. The features for this machine were very attractive. It arrived very fast and I was excited to open the box at 1AM to work on it. Surely enough, I encountered the problems that other people experienced from downloads, HDMI, to power. One of the first thing I did was to set up for FM radio, which sounded great out of my speakers.
Summary: I just got my 616 out of the box today. I was super excited when I finally got everything plugged in and completely went through the speaker setup. I started watching my DirecTV through receiver and after a few minutes my TV lost signal. I switched the HDMI cable, same issue with the different cable after a few minutes. I used another different cable to watch a movie with my DVD player, same issue. My TV keeps saying lost signal.
Summary: This unit worked for the first day then started having issues. It would not display the video on any selection however the sound still played fine. After resetting the device the video started working again for a short time but eventually started having the hdmi switcher problem. I could hear it clicking but no video was displaying.
Summary: I'm done with onkyo. The sixteen series is not at all up to par with what I've seen from Onkyo in the past. Should have listened to the postings on this unit, It has also been quite a while since I sent the unit in and I would like my money back!!!!!!!!!
Summary: Just read all the bad reviews and mine is the same. HDMI video output flickers then stops working all together? Onkyo USA customer service is the worst experience I've ever had. Over 1 hour on hold 2 different times. Skip this model and anything made by Onkyo. How do I give 0 stars?
Summary: I had purchased this along with a Klipsch sound system for a room I was finishing as a Home Theater room. It sat in a box for more than 3 months before I opened it until we finished the room...What a mistake! When I first hooked it up it was great. The next day when I turned it on, I was able to get sound from the cable/sat mode, but no video. I looked and looked and could not find anything wrong with the setup.
