     Hey folks,   Hoping some of the more knowledgeable members here can help me make a sound buying decision...   My ~5.5 year old TX-SR705 is on the fritz, running hot and being oddly fussy with HDMI (both inputs and output).  I must say it has performed well and I really have no complaints...

    I am having difficulty getting my Harmony Ultimate to control my Yamaha RX-A830. The "Watch TV" activity works fine, but when I power on with one of the other activities, the AVR cycles through "Scene 2 - TV Viewing" first, then switches to HDMI5, the input for the "Watch TV" activity (which...

    I was able to go to bestbuy today and discover this issue is likely reproducible across much of their product line. I reproduced the issue of making the receiver shutdown by putting in my U-571 DVD into their Blu-ray player (I don't think brand or model matters) not send the audio to any...

    I think what I'm after is a receiver with A/B switching capability and zone 2. ENrgStar's speaker setup is pretty much identical to mine although his has more inputs. What I have and want to do is this: Zone A is the living room with audio and video in a 5.1 setup. Zone B is the dining room...

    Hello All! I am looking to purchase an AVR to replace a 10-year-old Sony which was not the best to start with. I need it to have networking (ethernet at least, wi-fi a plus) and to be able to power a pair of Polk RTiA7 speakers which I've had for almost 2 years and have really not used since...

    Hey guys, I'm in the market for an affordable 2-channle amp that runs in/around 200wpc. I've got my eyes on the CV-900 at the moment, as it seems all function, no flash, at the right price point and power rating (not to mention that my system is largely CV, so they will probably work nicely...
