Iam thinking of getting the 818. I went through the thread but was not able to get the current list of issues. Also would there be aproblem hooking up an xbox with composite, wii a ps3 and a blueray O and lets not forget the cable box from xfinity. Would some need pass through?

The NR818 has analog to HDMI video conversion so you'll have no problem connecting all those devices to the receiver.

As far a problems with this receiver, I dunno. Haven't been following the thread. I do see it recommended quite often though.

I'm close to pulling the trigger on one. From what I've heard the problems are:

- no gapless audio (eg, if you listen to a live album there will be a gap of a few seconds between songs)
- takes 15 seconds to boot up
- there was a 24fps bug, but its been fixed with firmware

There might be other bits and pieces wrong, but they are the most annoying issues I've heard about.

The 828 and 929 have been announced so I'm hoping the price of the 818 drops...

You and me both. Someone scooped up both my 875 and my backup Harman/Kardon last weekend so I am receiverless!
