Great at first, but then the HDMI Issue's Onkyo Receivers seem to have bit me in the end!!!

Summary: It's a nice looking unit. All the features at the time I wanted for a decent price. I got mine Dec 2008. It was problem free for the first few years, but after that, I started getting strange picture issues with it. Minor at first. In the last year it's really been growing. Turn it on and no picture. A Turn it on off a couple time and the picture would pop up. In this last year it's just been getting worse and worse.
Summary: I had this and loved it for almost exactly a year. Then my HDMI completely failed. I went back to my old Yamaha (without HDMI) and an HDMI Switch. I looked around for a Yamaha with HDMI switching. I found one on sale and have been using it for over a year with no problems. I don't know if I got a lemon or what but I was not happy to pay a lot of money for one year's use.
Summary: Like many others my TX SR 806 lasted about 3 years and now to use it you have to turn it on and let it warm up for 15- 20 minutes. I'm very disappointed in Onkyo as they have had a stellar reputation for many years but it appears that not unlike so many other things they just don't make em like they used to. On the up side I get to shop for a new Pioneer Elite receiver which in my past experience has served me well.
this product seems to be very well built and powerful

Summary: just received my onkyo tx sr806 and I purchased the onkyo sks-ht870 speaker system and they sound awesome together so far after playing it for a few hours, im extremely satisfied. I will leave feed back in a few months, its too early.
Summary: You cannot go wrong with this receiver is correct..........for about 3 years, that's about as long as it will last before it starts having trouble "handshaking" to different sources through hdmi. For the last year or so i've had to turn the receiver on, wait about 30 to 45 minutes before watching tv, listen to music, or use anything connected to this receiver.
Summary: This receiver is my 4th Onkyo and this is the first time I had problems with the input switching, when I first turn it on it takes about 5 minutes before anything show on the screen, when I switch to Xbox 360,PS3 it takes even longer and a couple of times 30 to 40 minutes before a signacan be seen, this drove me crazy so I call Onkyo ( which told me I have to send it in for repair) and ask for help with my 2 year old receiver and they said its out of warranty so the...
ONKYO TX-SR806S feedback/squelch when 1st powering it on!

Summary: I was very happy with this unit for the first 3 years(1 year past warranty). No typical problems with HDMI failures, it does run warm. Upconversion to 1080P works fine, does everything its supposed to. However, noticably missing are the Burr-Brown 24/192 DACs, which ONKYO has since corrected in later models. Now, I have this very loud, very annoying feedback/squelch when turning the unit on. I sent it out for repair Sep 2011 ($25) and got it back 12/28.
