I set up my S7800 this weekend it's working well with all my devices but I did have one issue with DTS:X. I was getting a buzzing sound through the left front height speaker. But only when DTS:X was in use. I found that if I changed the configuration from using the included Atmos speakers to the option where the Atmos speaker sits on top of the front speakers, that the buzz went away.
No idea what the issue is. But I could consistently make the buzz appear and disappear by changing the configuration. I do have a 45 day return period with BestBuy, but I really don't want to return anything unless absolutely necessary. SInce the box everything comes in is huge. I had to remove the receiver and fold over the top part of the box to get it to fit in my car.
But otherwise I have been very pleased. I am using one HMDI cable for audio and video from my Sony X800 UHD BD player and so far it has been flawless. I'm using a couple of Sewell 18Gbps switches with two of the HDCP 2.2 inputs to accommodate my UHD devices. And the X800 is dedicated to the first HDCP 2.2 input.
i do wish all inputs were HDCP 2.2 instead of the first three. But the Sewell switches work great for a solution.
I also like finally being able to see an overlay when viewing 2160P60 content. Plus being able to see the color space. My SOny speaker bar didn't have the info and only had an overlay with 2160P30 and lower.
Although the Onkyo overlay seems to truncate the decimals for framerate. So 59.94 shows up as 59 instead of 60. And 23.97 shows up as 23 instead of 24.
