I was reading through this thread and noticed that several people have had issues with HDMI board failures. My 807 failed, and I ended up getting a 3008 when i got sick of waiting months for repairs to be completed. It eventually got sent to a regional facility where it was repaired. Both my 807 and now my 3008 are having the same problem as ShakeMan's unit (see post 10
). I just shipped my 3008 out for repairs, and I'm curious to see what the problem is. Here's a scan of my repair ticket for the 807. From what I can see, it looks like there were problems with the HDMI board and amp(s).
Are all these problems heat-related? If they are, I may end up getting another laptop fan to sit on the 3008 when it comes back. I'm surprised that I'm seeing all these problems with Onkyo receivers. I gave away my 575, and as far as I know, it is still running. I've got my 801 hooked up now as my backup. I was thinking about picking up a 3009, but I'm starting to lose confidence in Onkyo. Is this common with all the other brands as well?
