Summary: Thought it was time to replace the Yamaha. Bought at store for $450 and brought it home. Everything else works fine, but any change to volume during BluRay stops the playback. Must hit "play" again...works great until volume changes. Situation exists for both remote and manual volume adjustment. Even tried a second BluRay player with same result. BluRay connected to receiver via HDMI, as is Satellite. TV out goes to HMDI 1 on television.
Summary: I returned the receiver in less than a week. I could not get through the speaker Auto Calibration, which is necessary even for the manual set-up. I got an error code 33 (front speakers), despite tones outputting from the speakers clearly and loudly. The error code was very generalized, with the manual listing many possible causes, none of which I could isolate.
Summary: I bought this to replace an older SAMSUNG. It is over priced for its capabilities. Problems connecting non-sony components. Lack of VIDEO links to ANY services is a major negative. this is the second and last time sony is going to disappoint me.
Summary: Once upon a time, in a land far away lived a guy who loved Sony with all his heart. He felt like there was no reason to have anything else than Sony. So he went out and bought a TV (Sony), a DVD player (Sony), Camcorder (Sony), Game Console (Sony), MP3 Player (Sony), First, Second, and Third computers (Sony), First, Second and Third digital cameras (Sony), he even bought a new alarm clock (SONY).
Summary: Voller Erwartung ausgepackt und dann......keine Bedienungsanleitung..... Also erstmal wieder ins Internet und suchen.... naja und anschließend wie folgt + Verarbeitung ist gut + Anschließen der Boxen und HDMI Kabel kein Problem + Sound ist auch Spitze + Das automatische Einmessen funktioniert ABER - Die Fernbedienung ist sowas von Anti-Intuitiv.
Summary: I have already replaces tuner about 5 times. Everything else works quite well but radio tuner with connected to outdoor antenna explodes and burns also the antenna. Replaced antenna and tuner module but no luck, new tuner exploded within week. Indoor antenna not cousing any problem(indoor uses only one wire and one terminal) outdoor loop antenna uses 2 terminals and somethig is terribly wrong with this receiver. Previous kenwood receiver worked fine.
