Summary: This receiver worked fine for a couple of weeks. Then the video pass-through signal started to intermittently drop out. Now there is no video pass-through at all. I checked all sources, swapped out HDMI cables, sent sources directly to the TV. All were fine.
Summary: I've had Onkyo before and have always loved them which is why I bought this. It was perfect until just about a week ago when the sound just stops for about 3 to 4 minutes and then comes back on. It does this every 15 minutes. I have filled out 4 email forms to Onkyo, trying get support.
Summary: Get a Yamaha instead. Onkyo life has gone down the drain.
Pros: Lots of Flexibility
Cons: These units are notorious for the HDMI Board failing in 24 to 30 months, making the unit totally unusable. Pay a little more and get a Yamaha. Yamaha A820 is a much more reliable unit. Onkyo quality has gone down the drain.

Summary: 3 Months ago My NRTX-626 Onkyo Receiver stopped working. Tech support told me to send it in for a new Chip Set. I did and after waiting 4 weeks. They shipped the supposedly repaired unit to my old address even though I gave them complete new address.
Summary: Take the time to call onkyo's customer support before you purchase. See how well they take care of there customers after The Point of Sale. Each time I have called it was over an hour wait. (I have called 6 times total) 3 times for my unit. 2 times for friends unit and 1 time for are churches unit.
Pros: It works great till it fails. Typically the hdmi board stops working within the first year of use.
Cons: Onkyo used to be my go to brand. In the last 10 years there product quality has gone down to the point that I would never purchase another onkyo product again. Please do some research before you buy.
