I hope Onkyo has finally gotten this HDMI failure under control as I will likely buy another brand next time to avoid the headache.
That's a bummer...I'd send it back to Onkyo for the repair I think because from the two times they repaired mine so far, it came back quickly. Both my loss of internet connection and the HDMI failed within the same week but the warranty site didn't allow me to select two failures and so they fixed the loss of internet connection and I assumed they'd just do the other HDMI fix, but they didn't and so had to go through the whole process again....a bummer because my whole house audio plus the 5.1 system runs on the 616. Still to this day, comparing a 4 year old 616 to much more expensie AVR's ignoring things such as atmos that didn't exist, the 616 still has features I can't get on much more expensive AVR's as backwards as that seems to me. Powered Zone 2 WITH the ability to control volume AND a zone 3 for a few hundred bucks is crazy.

I know this is an old thread, but I had a 2 905s/ 906/ 5007 and all suffered from HDMI failures. The culprit is known, the caps on the board were not thermally capable of handling the heat generated from the HDMI chips...

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...
