What terrible luck. So I had an Onkyo 606 powering my main setup, and it failed soon under warranty with a bad hdmi switch board. They replaced it with a 607, which I used for about a year. Then I put the 607 in my bedroom and bought this receiver for my main setup because (1) I assumed the Onkyo 607 hdmi board would probably fail prematurely too; (2) this unit had way more power; (3) I liked the airplay and other internet connection options; and (4) I assumed this would be a better long term receiver for my main setup.
Well, now less than 3 years later this unit had stopped working. It happened to stop working about an hour after I got new uverse service installed. I would think those might be related events, but literally all the guy did was swap out the cable boxes and I verified my entire system worked perfectly after it was installed. After about an hour or two after the cable guy left my entire system just stopped working. No video, even from the setup menu, and no audio, even from the tuner/radio.
I spent several hours checking connections and tweaking settings, and then finally did a hard reset of settings. I still couldn't get a shred of video or audio. Finally, I tried HMG and all I got was a flicker of video every 20 seconds or so. I would appreciate anyone's thoughts if these events might be related or any thoughts on whether the unit is worth further tinkering or not, or if it just needs to go in the trash. Thanks in advance.
