Why would you want to do that? That doesn't give you surround sound and you'll get dialog out of every channel. I only use "All Channel Stereo" to listen to ambient music when I'm just hanging out or puttering around the house. But if you have that setting on for movies it's not going to sound good or correct.

It is a first real receiver I ever got, and I am unhappy I feel like worst purchase I ever made, no wait that was the Chrysler years ago...
If anyone was able to fix this sound issue I would love to hear it. same as for this clicking when some commercials are plain mono or 2channel stereo, that click is loud...
On other note: Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays to all
Did you try unplugging the 807 for a few minutes then pugging it back in adn turning it on? That has worked for others' loss of sound issues.

From the Onkyo FAQ:
When I connect my cable/satellite box via component through the receiver and use HDMI from the receiver to my TV it displays 720p when the broadcast is 1080i. Why is that happening?
This is a limitation of the Faroudja DCDi chip used in the Onkyo receivers. Incoming 1080i signals via component connection can only be transmitted via HDMI in 720p. Incoming 1080i signals via an HDMI connection will be transmitted in 1080i.
The following hook up recommendations will allow you to display 1080i resolutions from your cable/satellite.
1. If the cable/satellite has the options of HDMI or DVI outputs, use those connections instead of the component video. The HDMI connection will allow audio and video signals to be sent thought a single connection. The DVI connection is for video only. You will need a DVI to HDMI adaptor plus a separate audio connection to go from the cable/satellite box the receiver for sound.
2. if your cable/satellite only supports component video then you can either go component video out along with the HDMI from the receiver to the TV. Or you can go from the cable/ satellite direct into the TV with the component video so you can get the 1080i signal from the broadcasts.
Wha??? So since my new HD cable box won't work with the 807 using HDMI and now I am only going to get 720 using component? Time-Warner better pony up a better box then. They gave me some new model they're using. Right now I just have it direct into the TV since I didn't have my new rack set up but today I'm going to move all my components to their new location, near the 807 and we'll see what happens.

The Manual says it can play FLAC formats....
I streamed FLAC using TVersity and Twonky (I think I tried it with Twonky, can't check since my trial ran out and I'm not paying for it until they add Hulu support). I opened up a bunch of media ports at one point and I don't know if that made a difference or not but it can't hurt to try. Just search "media ports" in this thread and you should find it.

I have no problem with internet radio using Pandora. I don't think it's an overall internet radio problem.

The Onkyo does use a specific port which I opened on my router. I don't remember the port number but it's in the manual.
