Nice sound but poor execution - Aquos does not work

Summary: I have several Yamaha components and all are great except this one. The sound is great. The features are great. The Aquos link simply does not work. In fact, it screws things up so bad, I suggest you just turn it off and buy a side table to set all your remote controls on. This was the main feature I purchased this unit for because I hate having to deal with several remotes, but it does not work.
Failed after 3 months, took 8 weeks to get it repaired.

Summary: The price was good on this unit, but about 3 and half months after purchase it refused to power on. Amazon is an authorized reseller for Yamaha so thankfully Yamaha will repair the unit as long as you take the unit to an authorized repair center. That was 55 miles away for me and the parts are on back order. I've been waiting 5 weeks already for the repair and the tech today said to expect at least another two weeks before I will get the unit back.
Worked really well! and then it didn't! 10 months and done

Summary: I was really pleased with this receiver after purchase and setup. It worked really well and the sound was awesome. I used it mostly for TV, movies and gaming and for each, the custom sound fields (or whatever they are called) were great. The free app that works with iPhone and iPad was cool too, it lets you switch some features on the fly.
Summary: Update 2: It took Yamaha Customer Service 6 weeks to email me an RMA number so I could return the defective tuner to them. They never explained why producing a number takes a month and a half. I shipped the unit back to them about two weeks ago and haven't heard anything about it. If nothing else Yamaha is proficient at chipping away at the two year warranty.
