DO NOT BUY THIS RECEIVER - HDMI BOARD FAILURE - NO SOUND
on April 25, 2012
I rarely ever review products, but I wanted to give warning to anyone considering buying this unit.
I've had this receiver for more than 2 years now. The first 21 months everything worked great, no problems. Then around month 21 of ownership, I noticed there were no speaker icons on the receiver screen and no sound. I took it in for repair and was notified the HDMI Board had failed (at a cost of $650 for the board if not covered under warranty). Now 4 months later, I've had the same no sound problem happen 2 more times after replacement of the HDMI boards. Countless other people have had the same issue (just Google AVSForum and TX-NR807). Onkyo has indicated they will replace this unit now that its failed for the 3rd time, but I'd recommend if you're looking for a used/refubished receiver, to look elsewhere, as its just a matter of time until the same affliction will meet your receiver and you'll be stuck with an expensive video switching device that provides no sound to your speakers.
