when it worked....I didnt have to turn on the TV to get sound
It worked normally
Then I had no sound at all( TV on or off)
Dropped it off at the shop and paid the $40.00
Now I have sound ...but only with the TV on...
Oh well...like I said I think I am still only at $165( all in) invested....and bought it initially with the owner telling me the HDMI board was dead. He sold it to me for $40 and $40.00 to ship it to me
These are great receivers...but I know from my own experience with two other units( one completely replaced by Onkyo) that they can be problematic to say the least
