Summary: I bought a yamaha RX-v867 receiver a couple of years ago and within a year the receiver started dropping HDMI signals from my Tivo and bluray player. After a couple of hours of watching any of these two sources the screen suddenly goes blank and I loose all audio and video. Sometimes unplugging the receiver and plugging it back in fixes the problem. However, this solution is not foolproof.
Summary: First of all, I love having rhapsody built in and I love the android and apple apps that control this receiver. However; after a month hdmi1 stopped working, After 3 months I no longer had a connection to rhapsody (found out firmware was available that fixed this) and now after 6 months I have no audio (zone 1 or 2). Too much time messing with this, never had any issues with onkyo.
