HDMI Cable box users beware!!! Disappointed with Onkyo

  • Summary: From the get go, the Onkyo TX605 SR 7.1 receiver was giving me troubles Didn't like the fact it only had 2 HDMI input slots, then was unable to get any video capabilities with HDMI cable box from Time Warner Cable(Samsung) Called Onkyo 5 times for assistance and kept getting different solutions, albeit nothing worked totally.

Mine blew up... Review Updated.

  • Summary: I picked up my Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver from Amazon, hooked it up with my HTPC and Boston Acoustics MCS 130 5.1 system. All connections were straight-forward, and configuration was relatively painless, though I did actually read the instructions before setting it up. Audio playback of Cable TV, Cable HDTV, DVD's, HD-DVD's and Blu-Ray disks was all done through the optical input. XBox360 on the other optical input.

I thought it was great, until it started to fall apart

  • Summary: This model had it all - all the features you could want. I posted a glowing review back in 2007 when I bought it. Well, I just sold its dead carcass on eBay for $55 (July, 2011). First the subwoofer output died, then the right channel started dying randomly, then the sound would cut out entirely, and finally it would just turn itself off randomly. It had nothing to do with volume or temperature as far as I could tell.

Great specs. Video output DOA. Bad shipping policy.

  • Summary: I ordered this because of it's amazing HDMI support (all analog inputs can be output to TV via one HDMI cable!) and it's excellent price. HDMI inputs could be displayed to the TV but any other inputs could not be output via *any* output method. Ie, even component in -> component out would not work. No composite, component or SVideo output at all. After working with onkyo for a while they determined that the video processor is busted and needs to be returned.

Neue Tonformate oder 7.1 - beides kann erst der 705er!

  • Summary: Hatte mich vor der Bestellung des 605er stundenlang auf AreaDVD und in Foren (Hifi-Forum) informiert. Als das Gerät dann vor mir stand entdeckte ich Einschränkungen, auf die ich im Traum nie gekommen wäre: Im 7.1 Setup versagt das Gerät! Es kann zwar Dolby Digital und DTS-Quellen wunderbar dekodieren und mittels Pro Logic IIx auf 7.1-Kanäle erweitern - aber bei TrueHD, DTS-HD und MultiCH-PCM ist PL IIx nicht verfügbar.
