......rdc-7.1 back from the dead, doa'd during firmware flash, repair time: 4 months + a
day. Fixed under warranty.....so that was one plus i suppose. Even the Onkyo USA technicians had difficulty repairing it......they were ready to do a complete unit exchange
at one point, but there was no stock left anywhere apparently to exchange with. ......
Just curious... Did the tech say what, exactly, was wrong with it?
I was going to flash my RDC-7.1, but after reading your story, decided
against it; I've had enough problems with the unit for one lifetime. As
a corollary, I've decided not
to upgrade the tuner, because the new
tuner card requires a F/W upgrade to work.
My unit (the fourth replacement) still turns itself off from time to time.
Not often enough, so I'm ignoring it (IR CS claim they never heard of
this problem. Funny, this is my second one that does it). Lately, it has
started to change, on its own, the HDMI assignment for the DVD. I
have no idea how such a fault can even occur...
