Well, according to that PDF, neither does the 805 or 705 or 575 or 505.
On one part it says, "Signal is output at its input resolution with no scaling" and then a few lines below it says 1080i is output at 720p. Which makes NO sense. Until Onkyo releases their specs, I would take this pdf with a grain of salt.
If you look at the description from Onkyo's site for the 505 it states:
"To best appreciate the versatility of the TX-SR505, think of the home entertainment components that define today's consumer electronics landscape. It's a formidable selection, with HD-ready displays (from the first generation to the latest 1080p models), DVD players (including the latest Blu-ray and HD DVD players), gaming consoles (such as the Xbox® and PlayStation® 3), set-top boxes (consider PVRs offering HD transmissions) and MP3 players (specifically the dominant iPod).With the TX-SR505's HDMI transport enabling pass-thru sources up to 1080p and component video supporting 720p and 1080i sources, this A/V receiver is a fine investment for those who want the best of what's available todayand tomorrow.Also, with the ability to tune the TX-SR505 to your room's surroundings through Audyssey 2EQ, you're looking at a seriously capable entertainment control center, without the excessive price tag."
So, through HDMI, you can do 1080p in and out. Which makes sense.
