Cons: 3 years old and already in the repair shop. We've only used it when watching movies on the big screen television once a week or every other week. Product died while watching a movie, not particular reason, blew out and never came back on.
Poor Receiver, invest in something other than Yamaha

Summary: I purchased this receiver based upon price and unfortunately, many reviews I read on line in June of this year (2015). This receiver .... for the lack of a better one word description, ........... SUCKS! We'll be watching TV and all of a sudden the receiver shuts off without any warning.
Cons: Fails to recognize HDMI. SD programs work fine, but HD channels have no picture just sound. I see alot of complaints about this on other forums. All have failed around 6-12 months of use. Buy something else! So far no support from Yamaha on this issue.
Cons: The unit will no longer connect to my television, it appears that the HDMI output is corrupted. I unplugged the HDMI cable and attached directly to my cable box and it works fine, so definitely the unit. Was able to fiddle with it and get it working, but it only worked for another week and stoppe...
Summary: HDMI switching function would not work consistently and needed factory reset to restore correct working order. TV screen would show a pink screen for all inputs. Second replacement unit showed same symptoms.
