Summary: Overall, it is a nice unit and fairly easy to program. However, within the first 12 months the unit stopped switching to the selected A/V input. I returned the unit for warranty repair and the same problem occurred again about 10 months later.
Horrible instructions and set up procedures...sounds great when done.

Summary: I purchased this to downsize my system in our kitchen, and simplify things for my wife. For the price, it has a good number of featurs, including auto HDMI 3.1 switching. Whatever component that is on is automatically selected and signal is sent to TV and Audio (ie Computer, DVD, Blu Ray).Previously...

Summary: So far; so alright. No real issues as of yet. Set up is a breeze for anyone with basic knowledge. **FYI** make sure you get the correct remote that belongs to receiver. The STR I purchased came packaged with the wrong remote and I had to contact Sony and have the correct one mailed.
Summary: I bought this receiver in order to connect multiple HDMI sources to a DLP Link capable 3D projector. Everything works, except the 3D. I have used an Optoma 3D-XL 3D box, with either a PC, or PS3 as the 3D media source. These work perfectly well with the reciver out of the picture....literally.
