Summary: Took a chance on Amazon's Warehouse deals with this Sony STRDH820 7.2 channel receiver. It was described used - like new and about half the cost. Everything was still in its original packaging and looked like it was never touched.

Summary: Update: Iphone/ipod dock is capable of playing music and video, but I was disappointed that you can't look at your photos via your iphone. Bummer. If anyone has a solution, except for dowloading to computer, and using USB, let me know.
Here is the way the inputs work and a warning about the remote

Summary: I have one STR-DH820. You can assign up to 6 video inputs. You have 4 HDMI inputs (BD/DVD), GAME, SAT/CATV and VIDEO1, and you have 3 CVBS (Composite Video) and 2 more COMPONENT video INPUTs (Assignable). Well, AFAIK, the CVBS are not assignable, so they are mutually exclusive with the HDMI.
Cannot beat the features and quality for the money!!!

Summary: So to start this off review i just want to say this receiver for the money is untouchable. Sure there are much better receivers out there. But i really had a hard time justifying spending the extra money for the same features.
Summary: For the cost you can not go wrong with this receiver. I just replaced a Sony STR-DG520 with this receiver and I can hear a significant improvement. I'm running it in a 5/2 configuration bi-amping the front speakers.
Summary: Finally upgraded to Audio/Visual receiver with HDMI inputs and output. I was previously using a Yamaha receiver and hooking up TV through traditional audio inputs L/R channels. It was a bit of setup to get sound out of speakers when watching a movie or anything else.
