TX-NR646 - First impressions
Setup - no major issues, WIFI connected, Speakers auto setup with included calibration mic at 1 seating position.
The 646 is much cooler in operation than my previous Integra DTR 8-9 which got so hot I put a PC fan on the top of it.
Harmony Remote - while the 646 is not yet in the Harmony Database, setting up the Harmony as a 636 worked with one odd exception. The Harmony could not select the STRM BOX HDMI 3 input. I'll assume Logitech fixes it with official 646 support.
Gapless FLAC playback from USB - works, however USB drives need to be formatted as FAT32. NTFS or EXFAT won't work. This limits the Windows supported USB drive size to 32GB, which is too small for a large FLAC music collection. No album art support from USB, pretty basic UI.
Pandora works fine.
Accessing media from local SMB shares. Currently I've not been able to get this to work. The 646 sees the 2 SMB servers, but selecting either one shows no content. Content is shown on multiple other devices. I have opened a support call with Onkyo.
