Looks like another nationwide (or nearly so) outage for X1. This is getting to be unacceptable. Comcast's forum website seems to be struggling under the load of customers trying to check what's up,...

Are the programs that you're watching actually broadcast in Dolby Digital with more than 2 channels? If they have PCM stereo or Dolby Digital 2.0 audio then I believe that's all you'll get.

Wireless versus wired may not matter. The only way to be certain is to try it both ways. The more variables you can eliminate, the closer you'll get to the cause (hopefully!).

Onkyo warranties are not transferable to a new owner. Seems to be common to most brands, unfortunately.

I have it working with my Sony KDL65W850A and RX-A2040. There might have been other settings that I changed but have forgotten. The Yamaha AVRs aren't exactly user-friendly to set up properly.

It's happening here too. 1080p keeps resetting to 720p, and then I need to force reboot the box to get the 1080p option back. I've tried the 1080i option and have found that when so configured, the...

I'm testing Party Mode on the RX-A2040. When enabled, it duplicates the main zone audio to zone 2 (the main zone audio is a stereo track in this example). This also causes the main zone to switch...

The "CK-20" looks to be a Dual 1219 turnable in a CK-20 plinth. That's a pretty nice piece, at a reasonable price.
