The netflicks upscaling to 1080p works very well, great sound and picture quality.

If Onkyo does not address the issue then I will not be purchasing any further products from them.

While the TX-NR818 is a great AVR for the price and does the basics flawlessly, it does have some issues that need to be addressed. On the good side of things, this Onkyo sounds wonderful. I was skeptical upgrading from a TX-SR805 that this would be able to compare to that unprecedented beast, but it has. Although the 818 does sound generally a little quieter than the 805, I could hardly call it underpowered and a little boost to the volume (or use of IntelliVolume) fixes that issue. Overall, the sound is more balanced with a much tighter and well defined bass response and a more defined soundfield. I mark this down to the new Audyssey MultEQ XT32 that really does make a huge difference in compensating for room acoustics and helping to tune the subwoofer in a bit.

Picture processing is superb as well. While I don't use it to process the PQ of my Oppo BDP-93 Blu-ray player, I do use it to up-scale the signal from digital cable box/DVR from 1080i to 1080p and also apply some mild noise reduction, and my overly compressed cable has never looked better. There is a caveat, however. There seems to be an HDMI handshaking issue with the 818 and my Motorola digital cable box causing it to be forced down to 720p every time I start up. This means whenever I turn my cable on I have to manually dig down into the menu system and switch the output resolution back to 1080i.

Now, the biggest disappointment is the networking features. I was really hoping to be able to use the 818 to stream all my ALAC and FLAC audio files from my networked hard drive and finally box up all of my CDs, regaining all that physical space (I have A LOT of CDs -- over 6,000). Alas, the Onkyo doesn't support gapless playback -- not via DLNA, not via your "home network" not even from a USB drive. WHAT?!

Years ago, after researching and much reading I decided that Denon receiver was the best.
The old model, AVR 3808CI, 130 Watt, 39lb, only had 4 HDMI so I started looking to update to a new receiver.
The first thing I turned to was another Denon AVR-2312CI with 7 HDMI inputs, 105 watts per channel, Air Play etc for $924 inc tax at local Best Buy.
First thing I noticed was how light it was compared to my older Denon. Heavy does not mean better but in amplifiers, the important component is the power transformer and a robust transformer will be heavy.
Upon hooking up the 2312, my first listening test was disappointing. Not much better than my former Denon and perhaps not as good. So I returned the 2312 to Best Buy and start my search again.
After extensive search, the Onkyo line interested me the most.
Initially, I was attracted to TX-NR717 125 watts and 7.2. Then I chanced on to TX-NR818.
It is 135 watts, 9.2, 40lb and more electronic features stuffed into it than you can imagine! I was a little concerned because the more stuff they put in, more chance of conflicts, bugs and nagging problems.
The NR818 is the latest model and some websites list it but not available yet.
I found one at Amazon and I decided to order one for $1099 and with LAN adapter and 12 sets of banana plug it came to $1151.
Now here is the bottom line. After setting up the Receiver with Sony DVD/CD player, Time Warner DVR, XBox 360, PS3 and Apple TV, I put in my favorite CD and turned it on.
When I heard the sound, my initial reaction was WOW! I looked at my wife and she agreed the sound was fantastic! The best way that I can explain the sound is it's clear, clean, pristine.

I'm going to be honest, this is my first Onkyo receiver. As a owner of other great receivers from Denon & Yamaha, I was looking for a new powerful receiver, the Onkyo TXNR818 was just what I was looking for. Is 1 of 4 high-end audio receivers from Onkyo (2012), this is a 7.2ch receiver with 135w x 7ch of pure muscle. It packs the latest surround formats including the new DTS NEO: X and has the latest Audyssey MULTEQ XT32 calibration tool on which you'll get outstanding performance and some improvements over the original MULTEQ. At this price range Onkyo was able to put as many features as possible including; THX Select 2 Plus Certified, HDMI Support for 3D Video, 9.1 Pre Outs for audio and future expandability, Dual Core Video Engine with HQV Vida and Marvell Qdeo Processing just to name a few.

Before I let you know how this receiver performs , there are some minor drawbacks you should know. First, this receiver lacks AirPlay Support, wi-fi and bluetooth (a wireless and bluetooth adapter is sold separately) which I found inexcusable at this price; take note Onkyo, the new Sony STR-DN1030 offer these great features for a unit half the price. Second, the remote control is not fully backlit and while the GUI display is easy to navigate is far from the quality of those found on Yamaha or Denon receivers, in fact its a shame that it has a low resolution GUI and the icons are very ugly. This is one heavy receiver, over 40 pounds, 17 inches (wide) x 17 (depth) x 7 1/2 (heigth), is even deeper than my Def Tech StudioMonitor 65, so a very strong space in your entertainment center should be considered. Another thing that capture my atention was that the volume knob felt a bit loose and to soft.
