Decent performance, but ultimately fails on quality

Summary: When it worked, the performance was quite acceptable. I really liked using the sound programming, very easy to setup. However same as so many other users, I also had problems with too much heat and an early death of all 5 HDMI inputs (about 1 year after purchase).
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,...

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.
Summary: i was really looking forward to get this receiver but it seems that majority of 806 series have this problem. when you play native 1080p content you get blue dots on the dark parts of the picture and when you pause they flicker!
