Well, it is 1 AM in CA. I just got home from work, and I couldn't really wait. I took the SC-1222 out of the box to test it with the Dune player to make sure it works....AND IT WORKS!!!! I am posting some pics of the box, what came in the box (remote, batteries, set up manual, iPod usb cable, antenna, etc). It looks and smells brand new.
I took a picture of the Dune UI. At first, I didn't get any picture, and I started getting worried and pissed off. Then I remember I plug the Dune HDMI cable to the wrong HDMI port. I plugged it to HDMI 1 / DVD, changed the source with the remote to DVD and magic. It worked!!!! I can't wait to finish setting it up. It really sucks that some of you aren't able to use this AVR with the Dune.
