After two weeks this receiver is going back. It is a fantastic A/V receiver but about every 10 minutes the video and sound shut down for about 5 to 7 seconds. Tech support was no help. There must have been a bad batch of these because Amazon has stopped selling them and has posted a notice that many are having issues with the unit and they are investigating.
There only refunding ,,no exchange. I originally bought a referb unit but that only lasted two days before completely dying. I like Pioneer but looks like I will have to buy some other brand because this is there top of the line and has the features I want (9.2) I do not feel the Elite series is worth the extra money.
Update 3/19/15 Amazon is again exchanging for a new one, which I jumped on. Hopefully, third time is a charm. They do not state what their investigation found but the fact that they are again selling this unit tells me they have somehow corrected the problem. Should receive the new one tomorrow and will post updated results. Amazon has great customer service.
Update 3/23, this exchange unit is working much better but it has still cut out on me twice over two days. There are no firmware/software updates. I can live with this flaw if it doesn't get any worse.
