Summary: no se si ustedes conocen los problemas que tiene venezuela, con la adquisicion de divisas, yo tarde 3 años, reuniendo para poder comprar este equipo, que es una marca muy poco conocido en venezuela, me arriesgue, por que las caracteristicas son impresionante, y despues de muchos problemas para la ubicacion en mi casa para instalarlo, lo instalo y para mi sorpresa, que NO PRENDIO, ahora que hago yo con ese equipo que no sirve!!!
Summary: Sound quality is great. Mostly attribute to decent speakers and Audyssey, but I do think the amplifier section is good. In addition to the Gapless Audio issue, Onkyo will not take ownership of a firmware issue that ruined the pass through capability. After a firmware update, I can no longer pass through TV sound when the unit is in standby mode. I went through tech support did all the troubleshooting, changed cables, etc.
Summary: JMPage said it all, so I won't bore you with details. I never write reviews, but I felt compelled to come here and make sure that no one else is fooled by Onkyo. The 24p bug is a major problem, and Onkyo's refusal to acknowledge its existence, let alone fix it, is distressing to say the least. The audio processing is great, but if that's all I wanted I would have purchased a different product and an HDMI switch, and saved a LOT of money.
Summary: i bought this receiver 3 weeks ago and just returned it because it has a very serious bug its called the 24 fps bug. please google it and read about it or go to avsforum.com Onkyo will not admit this problem exists. STAY AWAY FROM ONKYO RECEIVERS [...
Summary: While the sound is great I cannot recommend this receiver. It has several very annoying features that make it frustrating to use. First of all is the lack of gapless song playback from network devices. When Beethoven's 5th is building momentum from the 3rd to 4th movements it is absolutely deflating to suddenly have 5 seconds of silence. Dark Side of the Moon, don't even bother, you'll be either crying or ripping the receiver off the shelf.
very thin horizontal white line outputs to the screen and a green bars shows many times.

Summary: did the latest firmware, even the factory reset - like was suggested at the onkyo usa forums and nothing - i tried the tech support and like others said here - Onkyo tech support is a joke, absolutely NO help. I am really upset - what bad experience ... ----- 01/01/2013 - I know that soon or later (looking at the other reviews) someone will ask to contact askOnkyo@us.onkyo.com and describe what is wrong.
Got it when the price was right, ended with a nightmare

Summary: Bought it when it was going for 679.99. Problems from the get go. NOTHING will respond via HDMI except my pc. Everything else will not provide picture. Wii U did when I first tried it out. Go back to play, and nothing. PS3 will only show in 1080i (yes i have a 1080p tv) and that's only if it's set to through on avr. It will send 1080p but only when the avr is set to 1080p/24 which makes everything on the screen laggy. Same thing with XBOX and Oppo player.
Summary: I purchased this Onkyo TX-NR818 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver (Black) receiver to replace a 5 year old Harmon Kardon that sometimes had HDMI switching issues. After running the XT32 setup I thought WOW, this sounds great, Video seems to be great too. After just a few weeks though I have joined the problem crowd- the receiver no longer will power on by remote. All other remote options work but power on will not.
Summary: We figured we’d try again with an Onkyo, thinking that our first experience was just a fluke. So we bought another Onkyo receiver, and again, it broke after less than a year, and after having problems with it the whole time. We begged for them to let us take it to a local shop. They said we absolutely could not if we wanted it repaired under warranty.
Summary: Onkyo, fix the gapless playback!! Excellent sound, but the lack of gapless with flac file is unacceptable... The receiver does not support either the .cue file, so it is useless as a flac player. When this issue is corrected by Onkyo, I will modify my review/rating of the Onkyo txnr-818.
