If you have been following this thread since Day 1, you would see that the 4520 has no more HDMI issues than any other AVR make/model.
no I didn't make a mistake
of the 20 or so AVR's I have owned in the last 5-7 years...the 4520 is the only one that has given me the myriad of issues with wonky HDMI hand shake issues
Experiences that are mirrored with what others have described in this thread
While HDMI could be quirky...especially in the early days of implementation...99% of those issues are no longer there and can many times be simply solved by turning HDMI control "off"
That is not the case with the 4520..and again mirrors issues being described here by others.
Even in cases of older( and in some cases more expensive pieces than the 4520) units I had no such issues
I have been following this thread for more than a year...as I have of the other manufacturers of AVR's and pre/pros that I either owned or was interested in buying
I would disagree with you on the frequency of reported HDMI handshake issues in those threads vs this one
but again...just my experience and the reading of others
