I own an Onkyo 607, have had it for about 6 years now. A couple of years ago, my menu buttons stopped working....I can only see limited menus on the AVR itself, and nothing comes up on the screen. Likewise, composite/component inputs never display and only give sound (making older things like the Wii useless on it).
The video on HDMI inputs plays fine however. Does this warranty extension cover that fault too?
I also get random clicking noises coming from the AVR.....not very often but it's there.
Also, more importantly.....lately, on watching a few movies, bitstreaming DTS/AC3 audio from my HTPC....I get intermittent very short sound dips. So mid conversation or effects in a movie the sound blanks for just a split second. It doesn't bother my other half, but it bugs the hell out of me and I find myself listening for it, more than actually watching the movie. Whilst this could perhaps be an issue with my HTPC and I have tried allsorts including a rebuild, I suspect this might be caused by the AVR too.....HD video plays perfectly just the audio giving the micro dropouts, and as its bitstreaming I wouldn't expect the PC would affect the sound or if transfer issue it'd surely affect the image too.
I have a couple of consoles connected to the AVR....haven't played them of late, but I must get round to trying it out....I'm sure I remember hearing these dips with them too a while ago but didn't think anything of it at time
edit: Is there any 'easier' location of the serial number? Even displayed on the display perhaps? To get to the rear bottom, I'll probably have to yank a boatload of tight cables out that will be tricky to reach on the shelf as it was putting them in in the first place
