Summary: I purchased this unit after my 2-year old Onkyo went down with the typical HDMI board issue. I switched to Yamaha because of their supposedly better build quality. After less than 5 hours of use, I got got the dreaded blinking red power light. What gives with these new AV receivers? The quality control of their subcomponents is nonexistent. Bad on you, Yamaha, for letting things slip so badly. Thankfully, returns on Amazon are fairly easy. Back it goes.
I have had this unit for a grand total of 48 hours

Summary: I have had this unit for a grand total of 48 hours and I have used it maybe 4 of those hours. I'm packing it up and taking it right back to the store. I turned the tv and the receiver on, there was sound for about 2 seconds and then the screen turned purple. I've unplugged and plugged and restarted and still a purple screen. Definitely don't waste your money on this unit.
