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.
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.
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...
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.
Summary: It worked for a little over two years. While it worked it run too hot to touch. I was never happy with this purchase. Now that it died I can move to buying another receiver. One thing is for sure, it will not be an Onkyo.
Summary: Loved the sound this unit provided. However, after a little over two years, and with the warranty expired (gee, imagine that), the HDMI card began to fail. The cost of replacement, with labor, was only a few dollars less than what I paid for the receiver.
Summary: Overheated and Failed after 4 months After 4 months the unit overheated and failed after watching tv through a sat receiver. Unit is now dead. Repair Service is a real pain. There have been some cases of the receiver spontaneously catching fire.
