If it doesn't work you may want to consider a repair/exchange. I originally bought a refurbished 609, and in just a few weeks the HDMI started losing connectivity. First ARC stopped working, then RHiD. I returned the unit and bought one new from Amazon and so far (1 month and counting) so good. Everything works perfectly.
On a side note, I experienced the exact same thing with the refurbished HT-S5400 HTiB. First the ARC on the R590 receiver from that package failed, then all RHiD communication failed. I ended up selling the receiver on CL (to a guy who was using optical and I told him about the issues before he bought) and upgrading to the 609 for the living room, running the HT-S5400's speakers. Even though the speakers are all refurbished, I have had no issues with them so far, except that I got one with a small hole in the grill.
I now have a new HT-S5400 package in the bedroom and it's been operating to spec since February.
These were my first two experiences buying factory-certified refurbished electronics. They will probably be my last on anything over $200.
