I don't disagree, I just find it unfortunate. Since I still had a couple devices that use IR control this time around, I went with the latest Harmony offering.

I'm guessing the rumored refresh, some say Fall 2015, will include UHD capability.

I'm hoping there is an option to upgrade existing content when UHD versions are available, for a reasonable...

I've seen user reports of Onkyo, Oppo and Sony each doing out of warranty repairs in some situations. I suppose it depends on the nature of the problem.

Yeah, Kane is like the Michael Jordan of home theater: Has missed more shots than almost anyone else will ever attempt.
