I'm seeing some video glitches with mine, how good is Onkyo on releasing firmware updates?
With an HDMI input running at 720P I get little freezes (about 1 every 10 - 15 seconds) if I have the receiver configured for pass through. If I set the receiver to upconvert to 1080P this problem goes away. I have verified this with both my PS3 and my DirecTV DVR box, they both showed this problem.
My Wii is even worse, connected by component cables, feeding 480P into the receiver. Disc Channel, Wii Shopping Channel both display for a split second then go black never to return. This is occurring with any pass through or upconvert settings I try in the HDMI and regardless of whether I have the Wii feeding 480p or 480i into the receiver. The way it is acting, I'm almost thinking this may be a problem with the signal the Wii is sending, I may try to fins a better set of cables to see if that makes a difference.
I'm still on the fence as to whether or not I will keep it, I really like the audio side of things, and I can make everything work there are just a couple of "gotchas" And, after looking again at other receivers in the $800 - $1100 range today I still like the Onkyo the best, and the audio side is rock solid.
