Video drops with HDMI

Randy, Amazon
19 November 2011
  • Summary: I understand the problem I'm facing with this system is a problem with a lot of theater systems, called the "HDMI Handshake". But nonetheless, I didn't know about when I purchased the system, and my TV is wall-mounted with a permanent configuration so I have to use HDMI,not component cabling.

Terrible abd faulty product

OSO84, Amazon
1 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this product in July 2010 by September 2010 the HDMI output had completely went out. Onkyo honored their warranty but I had to drive 1 hour north in order to ensure it was delivered properly, not to mention they do not cover shipping.

Keep looking elsewhere as Onkyo disappoints.

Randy L. Kosch "SgtRock95", Amazon
22 July 2011
  • Summary: Purchased my Onkyo August 1 2010. Within 3 months the unit failed as no audio or video would pass through the unit. Shipped it in for service as Onkyo specified (double boxed and insured), which cost me $75! Returned about 3 weeks later. The unit has failed a second time in less than a year.

  • Summary: After four months the HDMI input board on my TX-SR608 has died. I had the exact same failure with my previous Onkyo TX-SR606 which was out of the 2 year warranty period. The TX-SR608 was a replacement for the 606 which had a known issue with HDMI board failure.

Unausgereift

Stefan Frei "Stefan", Amazon
13 May 2010
  • Summary: Abgesehen von einer in miserablem Deutsch geschriebenen Bedienungsanleitung "Lösen Sie den Netzkabel aus der Wandsteckdose vor dem Herstellen der Verbindungen" und einer gewöhnungsbedürftigen Fernsteuerung hat das Gerät vor allem 2 Bugs, die es für mich fast unbrauchbar machen und ich mir aktuell...
