Onkyo receivers had issues from all the years starting in 2007 to 2013; that I know, so why restrict them?
All of those years Onkyo had HDMI board issues, heat issues, audio issues, front panel display issues, etc.
Anyway what counts is that the people reading this might finally get some help with their defective units.
For seven years to be an Onkyo owner meant for many to be a repairman, for others to suffer aggravation and frustration, for many to become members here @ AVS, for others to never swim those waters ever again, and for others to buy fans, to take extreme measures, to pay attention, to read carefully, to do things normal owners don't normally do.
Yeah for sure many are mainly happy with only very few minor issues; but overall the wave of disappointments is real and customer service is poor and real issues are very annoying.
So, this is better than nothing, even if it's late in the game. But there is also a valuable lesson learned here, and that, each person can assess it for himself.
