Great sound and video with a very clean installation.
amazonfan
Every time we watch a movie now (from our new Blue-Ray) the sound cuts out and the only way to get it back is to turn off/on the receiver.

This receiver has impressed me all around so I would say best bang for your buck.

I just received my new Sony STR-DH810 7.1 on Friday afternoon. I already had the previous version, the STR-DH800 set up in the living room. The DH810 I got for the den. It took less than an hour to pull the plugs out of my old Sony (non-HDMI) receiver and set-up the DH810. I would recommend that anyone getting this get a set of banana plugs for the speaker inputs. You "can" get the wires in the "screw-in" connectors, but banana plugs are just so much easier to deal with. I am using all 3 component inputs, 3 of 4 HDMI, Composite and CD, including DVD Coax, and all Optical audio inputs. Everything is very accessible and clearly labeled.

Once I had everything set up, I ran through the Audio/Video set-up manually. The DH810 comes with a mic that allows you to automatically configure your sound system (the receiver does all the work, but I prefer to do the "tweaking" manually. But that's just me. However, that said, after manually setting up my system, I reset the receiver and allowed the included mic to automatically detect and set up my sound system (just to see how it handled the task) and it did a bangin' job! Very easy automated and intuitive set-up.

The initial set-up is a breeze. Hold down the On/Off button on the receiver for 5 seconds until the receiver says CLEAR (which you can do anytime you want to undo any major blunders or just start fresh). Press the speaker button on the receiver until your speaker set-up appears, select your desired input button on the remote, crank up the volume and you have sound! From there, the remote's menu allows you to configure all the tweaks like EQ, Speaker distance, balance, bass, treble, you TVs resolution, etc. I would prefer some kind of TV-On-Screen Menu, but that is not really a big deal to me.

I purchased this receiver a few days ago and waited until I ran it through as many set-ups and combinations as I could in order to be as thorough in my review as possible. The STR-DH810 has been able to easily handle everything I've thrown at it through every type of cable imaginable and has only had one flaw that I've noticed: upscaling a composite video signal to 1080p (from a Nintendo 64 in this instance) seems to come with some flicker to the upscaled image, but flicker was solved by changing the resolution to 480p or 1080i. My only fault with the input set-up in the back is that there are no audio inputs that correlate directly with the component video inputs, so when I want to hook up a Wii or Xbox with component cables I have to hook the audio cables up to different inputs. Therefore, I have to have the L/R audio cables plugged into the BD composite audio input and reprogram where the video signal comes from in order to have the video and audio programmed to the same input selection. Because of this I had to do some unconventional reassigning of inputs, but since each input can be named by the user it is simple enough to keep track of.

Programming the remote to work with all of my components was very simple. Everything is working smoothly together, especially by utilizing Bravia Sync with a PS3.

5.1 and 7.1 DTS-MA and Dolby TrueHD have been handled perfectly and the 7.1 set-up has given my living room a sound field that I wouldn't have believed. I prefer to calibrate my speakers by my own ear, but using the Auto Cal option to see how well it works was a very pleasant surprise, and trying to fool the mic by placing it in tough spots was harder to do than one would imagine.

OK, I admit that I am pretty much a Sony brand loyalist; having items ranging from clock radios to cameras to televisions dating back over 25 years. But I am also a person who people say is a "call 'em like I see 'em" kind of guy. The STR-DH810 is a good, solid A/V receiver. However, some disappointing shortcomings and a lopsided emphasis on the "V" part of A/V keeps me from giving this unit a 5th star on its rating. I still would not hesitate to recommend this unit to friends with the caveat that they should be aware of what they are not getting as much as what they are.

It is obvious that the folks at Sony have put most of their focus on people who have the newest equipment at the expense of the large customer base that have a significant investment in Sony products over the last several years that are still going strong. This is evident in the constant touting of HDMI connections and 3D readiness. What you don't hear is what connectivity was dropped. I always strongly recommend to my friends that the[= download the user manual from a manufacturer's support site before making a final decision. For Sony, that is esupport.[...]. This is literally a case of "a picture is worth a thousand words."

For me, what was lost was needed audio connections; there is only one set of dedicated audio in/outs (labeled SA-CD/CD/CD-R). You can always use the audio connections of a video input, but it still feels a tad wasteful to leave the video connections forever unused. It is also inconvenient for the need to give a briefing to your family telling them that the audio connection you labeled "HD Tuner" is operated by first pressing the "Video 1" button on the remote.
