I'm currently working on a AV RS-232 plugin for Mediacenter and am looking for a cheap(under $500.00) receiver that has two way RS-232 control that I can use to test with. The family is getting sick and tired of the theater room not working because I have the pre-amp in my office.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't yet used the port on my Onkyo but it has a serial port. The value is just incredible. Here is one for $450:

You may want to download the manual first to make sure it has a serial port as I have the 805 (the picture for above shows a serial port too).

Some CQC'ers have gotten some of the Yamaha's for a great deal, ie $250-ish on eBay.

IIRC, there was a low-end Denon that also had RS232 available for dirt cheap on eBay.
here's a thread with a whole list of RS232 receivers.

I'm on Google Plus a lot more than online forums now, contact me there if you want something.
