Thanks for this.

Never heard of the Onkyo HDMI board issue taking out connected devices' HDMI ports. Are you sure you don't have something else going on there?

This is a good receiver too. I looked hard at this one myself before I recently purchased a refurb Denon AVR-4311ci off A4L for $699. Just make sure that there is not some "exclusion" to the...

Of the receivers you listed, it is going to boil down to if you are wanting Atmos capability. If Yes, then I would prefer the X4100 over the Onkyo. Mostly due to Audyssey Multi XT32 room correction...

This is typically how the HDMI board problem begins to let itself be known. A lot of folks did the off/on trick for a few days until it no longer helped then sent it back.

Can't decide - Denon AVR X4000 or AVR 4311ci

Right now I am using (or was using) a Denon AVR 3311ci in my 2nd system. But recently the HDMI board crapped out. Resets and whatnot were tried to no avail. The receiver is out of warranty and no...
