Summary: This A/V unit is OK, and does the job. I had it paired with a Sony TV and had no problems. Recently I've paired it with a Samsung Smart TV, a Samsung BluRay player and a Direct TV Satellite receiver. The Sony receiver works with each of the other units but switching back and forth is complicated.
Summary: I bought this receiver mainly for its built-in scaler which scales all analog video to HDMI output so I only need to connect it to the TV with one HDMI cable. But the scaler in this receiver is a disappointment. First, it only accepts 480i analog video, even from the component input.
Summary: If anyone is trying to connect this receiver in 7.1 with "front high" speakers be sure to use PLIIz mode. It took me about 3 hours to figure this out. Page 34 of the manual says if you are using "front high" or "surround back" to turn on speaker B "SP B or SP A B" via "SB ASSIGN".
