I am actually a owner of a 3009, but I also follow this thread. I follow this thread because the activity on the 3009 is slow and being the 09 and 10 units are mostly the same.
I just took the 3009 out of my system to send in for repairs. I've owned it for a year and a half, but started to have problems about a year in. I called tech support and they ran me through a bunch of tests, and over the phone they determined the HDMI board was starting to fail.
thats been the story for years now
I have a 5009 that may have ...like 6 hours on it
It was a warranty replacement for a 905 that had failed a few times
During the course of all the back and forth I went ahead and bought another receiver
then they decided they were replacing the Onkyo 905 with a new 5009 unit
