Summary: Does everything it should well but receive off-air signals. I read the reviews too, so I was aware of this problem. Since I have a Satelite(XM)receiver hooked to it, I bought it anyway, due to the price. Off-air reception is as reported. Everything else works perfectly and is simple to set up.
7.1+.1 or 9.1+.1 but not 7.2, built in IR repeater!, let me explain

Summary: I am very pleased with this purchase but the description as a 7.2 is wrong. This is a 7.1 with two separate sub outputs but the outputs are not separately controlled just a single split signal so technically this is only 7.1 with a built in split to two RCA connections.
Summary: I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 because of the WEAK built in tuner. I replaced a Yamaha HTR-5063 which is a much lower end model, and even though it was lower end the built in FM tuner was SUPERIOR compared to the RX-V1065BL. On the flip side this does have HD radio which my previous model didn't.
Summary: this is a awsome receiver it will do almost enything u can think of im vary vary vary happy the only thing I can find if i had to find something wrong with it would be when u go from one thing to another the sub will make a bump every time u do something and there is no fix
Summary: I'll first start by saying that I got this receiver as a gold box deal for $277, so my impression of its value in comparison to other receivers may be a bit skewed. That being said, this receiver offers beautiful sound quality with great video upconversion, and is incredibly easy to use.
Summary: I like the receiver the sound is good easy to use but the only thing that i did not care for is that the antena does not pick up the signal very well. other than that it is very good receiver.
Summary: I bought this unit because I love my Yamaha receiver that I've owned for the past 10+ years but needed to upgrade to take advantage of the new sound formats with BluRay. There was no problem connecting everything to it. The sound on BluRay, DVR & DVD is fantastic!
