Had the same problem and won't go back to Onkyo. I loved the receiver but not worth the trouble of it failing repetitively. I went back to Denon.

It's a real bummer. I honestly thought I was buying a receiver that would last me 5+ years. Instead I barely made it 2 years before the first failure. Then that fix messed up in the same way 3 months later. They fixed it again. It's ALMOST been a year since then and it's dead again. I was really impressed with the performance but I can't see myself buying Onkyo again after this. I've got it plugged into a UPS w/ Surge Protection and it was still fried, no storm, or anything. I'm getting the "Now Initializing" error, and HDMI is not working. I've been nagging support for 3 days now and they still haven't budged. Still hopeful that they'll do me a solid and give me a courtesy repair.

What Denon did you switch to that's comparable to the 809?

Mine was a few years back. I went with the Denon x2000 which would be the x2300 for this year.

I just bought the M70 and am waiting a week for it. My Onkyo 809 has not had an update since 2012. I had it repaired for no video a couple of years ago (I don't remember exactly when) Should I update the firmware with the risk of bricking it? I thought the TV with upscale lower resolutions to 4k, so why bother having the Onkyo do it?
