should i go with the 608, is there a work around to listen to internet radio?
i'll have my ps3 and dish receiver hooked to the receiver.
I haven't personally hooked up internet radio through the PS3 but it is a menu option...
UPDATE: Check this link... again I haven't done it but others havehttp://ps3mediaserver.org/forum/view...&t=3240#p14039
When you have a PS3 you don't need to pay for extra internet widgets to your TV& receiver... I was browsing the net on my PS3 today... I'm sure you could do it that way as well.
In the long run the 1.4a ethernet pass through will be awesome to hook up the PS4 & a internet ready TV too... The receiver itself doesn't need ethernet... its nice to have for updates.
I think the Pioneer 1020 & the Onkyo 608 are win win situations... get whatever one is on sale... I got my Onkyo 608 for $100 less than the Pioneer, if it was the other way around I'd go with Pioneer.
