I also have an Onkyo..
Hey, kingrsol and MonkeyPoke (and anyone else who has gotten the newer VIP2550):
Are you connecting it to an Onkyo receiver? I've been dealing with the 1225 for a while, and got tired of the choppy audio when forgetting to switch the box from surround to stereo. A 2550 is on its way and if anyone else is using this with an Onkyo, I'd love to hear how it is working out for you.
I found this thread after much frustration and am relieved to hear of the newer box. Here's hoping..
Thanks, everyone for the help.
