Best Receiver for the Price!,
This review is from: Onkyo HT-RC460 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver (Black) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought this receiver to replace a really old Sony receiver. Once out of the box, it was very self explanatory on how to connect components to the pre-labeled HDMI inputs (and there are 8 of them!!). I have yet to purchase a 7.1 speaker system so it was very easy to connect my two (2) stereo speakers. I have this connected to a 60" Vizio LED and controlling the receiver from the OSD on the Vizio is awesome! The ability to upscale older components that do not offer HDMI (Nintendo Wii for example) if a big plus! Overall, I love this center piece to my home media center! I cannot wait to purchase a nice set of 7.1 speakers to go with it! I recommend this unit to all my family and friends!

I'm having a really difficult time with my Wii. I have Component 1 set to TV/CD and I can hear the music fine, but I can't seem to get the video to show on my TV. I thought with this receiver that I only needed 1 HDMI cable to carry the component signal. My Xbox 360 and Cable box work fine. How did you get your receiver to upconvert? Thanks!

Stephen - I am having the same issue, but I have not really investigated or did any real troubleshooting yet with the component input/outputs of the receiver. For now, I just run the component cable from the Wii directly into the TV. Once things start getting back on track now that the holidays are over, I hope to get a chance to work on it soon. If I do, I will let you know. Thanks!

I figured it out with the help of another forum. This receiver won't upconvert a 480p signal, only 480i. What I did is go into the Wii settings menu, change the resolution to 480i from 480p, and it worked perfectly. I disconnected the component cables from the Receiver to my TV and now there's one less cable to worry about. Either the receiver or TV is probably upconverting the 480i anyway, because I really couldn't tell the difference once I switched back to 480i.
