No, only music. This is why the pictures and video folders are always x'd out on the menu.
Since it's been over 6 months now I guess I'll update:
Love this little receiver. It powers my living room 7.1 home theater setup very nicely. Dolby DTS Master HD is stunning. Gets loud as all get out. I've got bad ears already, and I work on my car stereo without ear plugs a lot of the time and out of all those my HT system gives me the worst headache after testing loud for a while...
Since I figured out to turn VieraLink off on my 210 Blu Ray player, I've had zero HDMI connectivity issues....I use this thing for hours every day, from streaming Pandora all day to watching TV at night. Aside from the occasional power reset to re-initialize the network adapter in the 609, internet has been rock solid. I can even enter streaming IPs directly into the receiver via the web interface and stream my radio programs...plus the "play to" function in my home network allows me to play any music straight to the 609 from any computer in the house.
All in all it's a great little 7.2 receiver, IMO. Sorry you guys are having such trouble, I hope I'm not singing the blues in a year or so...
