I retaped the box shut...hopefully it hasn't rusted in the 6 months it has been sitting there in a sealed box?
ironically...speaking on avr's sitting in my garage
I ran across an Onkyo 875 the other day...the owner said the video processing wasnt working...he was told the HDMI board had gone out
I am sure many know here how typical that repair is on those units and a few other recent Onkyos...I myself have had that repair done under warranty when I had an 875 a couple of years ago
My understanding is that a paid repair is about $700-900
Anyway...long story short...I give him $40.00 for it...thinking I would use it to power some speakers in the garage or whatever
I think the amp section in those units is top notch
And then what do you know..I hook it up and it works perfectly video and all..LOL?
For now anyway...time will tell..I dont need the video processing for what I was thinking anyway
So it is now sitting in a box on top of the 5009 receiver in my garage
