I have the HT-S7100 practically the same as HT-S6100 with the TR-606 receiver. Yep still going strong since i bought it as a "refurbed item" back in 2008!! I only added a fan on top of the unit to fix the overheating problem and is in an open home theater stand. I have not upgraded anything on it, still the same speakers that came with the HTIB . Still enjoying the awesome room filling sound in my home.
I know its been more than a 1.5 years since someone posted on this forum. I am hoping someone will see this post. This is a great HTIB. I've had the S6100 since 2007 (as a refurbished deal) and only had to replace the capacitors on the HDMI board once. Besides that, this HTIB works great and the sound is still incredible and powerful.
My question is this: I have new 2014 Samsung 3D TV and 3D Blu-ray. Because this receiver can only produce 1080i video at its best, I have always passed-through 720p and 1080p. So with 3D, would it still work if I only "pass-through" the 3D video signal? Would it not be the same as hooking up the Blu-ray HDMI output directly to the TV if I just passed-through the video signal?
I still want to utilize the best sound by using HDMI hook-up to my receiver from my blu-ray.
Just wondering. I don't have a 3D Blu-ray disc yet. Waiting for Xmas for something.

Reason: correct spelling mistakes
Still have the HT-S6100 rocking. I had to have the HDMI board/capacitors replaced 2x on the 667, both under warranty, but it does work OK now, despite losing picture for about 1second when inputs change or after the unit has been on for about 10minutes. it is not a horrible issue but it does kind of suck, after it does it one time it won't do it again on that input. Sound is still amazing.
Sorry to raise this one from the dead. I still have a fully functioning HT-S6100 without any HDMI board problems. I'm an electrical engineer by trade and am considering replacing the capacitors as a preventative measure. Does anyone recommend that or is this the sort of problem that if it hasn't already cropped up, it probably will never come up?
