I have several problems with my SR-7001, which I bought in January.
I got the receiver hooked up with HDMI to a Sharp LC-37GE1E
To the receiver I have a Samsung Digital HD cable receiver
(HDMI), Marantz DV-7600
dvd player (HDMI), Playstation 3 (HDMI), Xbox 360 (component) and Nintendo Wii (component).
The only devices with no trouble are the PS3 and the DVD player, which work flawlessly through HDMI. The others have several issues.
When using the samsung cable receiver with HDMI, the audio doesn't work for anywhere from 10 seconds to 5 minutes, after that it goes on and works flawlessly. Also, I have the cable receiver at 480p, since the image goes intermittent with higher resolutions. I also tried the receiver with component and optical, the audio works better, but the picture gets more intermittent with many blacks and snowy in between.
When using the Xbox 360 through component on 1080i, it usually works fine, but now and then there are severe issues. For instance, when playing certain games
, the image sometimes disappears, but the audio continues. Especially when playing online (and pausing is not an option) this gets very very irritating, to the fact that I've had to hook my xbox up directly to the TV (which has no problems with the signal).
Finally, with the Wii on 480p, the image gets really grainy, and there's all sorts of jittering on the screen. Also, very annoying, but unsolvable since my TV only has 1 component input, used by the Xbox.
So, all in all, I'm very disappointed with this receiver, and am looking to trade it in for a denon 3808.
