Summary: I have had this receiver for a couple of years and had no problems but keep getting told to use hdmi. I use an optical for my TiVo a coax for my DVD. I have always done that but I have a roku 3 also but doesn't give me 5.1 sound.
good receiver but needs remote to use the FM turner

Summary: I bought this used receiver because it switches HDMI and digital audio. The only problem is that you need the remote to use the FM turner. Since the seller didn't send the remote this is an ongoing problem.
Summary: I bought this hoping to get full surround sound quality. Come to find out, it won't play sound through the HDMI port! After hours of searching for the answer to why it has an HDMI 'IN' and an HDMI 'OUT', but won't give me any sound; it is merely a "pass-through" which makes no sense why it would...
Summary: I bought this product(Sony STR-DG520), it arrived on time, No Damage, Complete, and Easy to set-up, giving that I'm not an electronics technician. I took it one step at a time. The given instructions were simple enough to follow.
Summary: I'm only using the receiver for a 5.1 speaker set I have for my computer, so I haven't used anything except the on/off and volume features.... the sound quality seems pretty good though, so I have no complaints.
Summary: The other reviews of this product, were VERY helpful in letting me make an informed decision! It has 2 HDMI inputs, but as others have said, the receiver does not process the audio from the HDMI signal. There are 2 digital audio inputs. One optical, and one using a single RCA plug.
