I have 8 devices.... Easily,
1. Xbox 360
2. PS3
3. WII (yes there is an HDMI dongle they make)
4. Cable TV (for the wife)
5. XBMC machine
6. WD LIVE Device.
7. BR dedicated Player
8. Ras Pi Device
9. ROKU (it was a slick deal for $40 how could I resist)
10. OUYA
11. Extra spare one just hanging out incase I need it/

Currently have 7 ports on my Onkyo 809. For devices like the OUYA, XBMC Machine, PI and Roku are all sharing ONE HDMI port on the receiver using an HDMI hub with 4 ports

NOW we all know that current generation gamers are not going to disconnect their 360's wii's and ps3's right away.

SO I will need 3 more Ports for the next 3 game consoles

So 8 HDMI ports is a start!

In all seriousness though I've really hesitated to upgrade my main receiver and it's pretty old (probably 7-8 years or so and its pre-HDMI Onkyo). I guess because it works and works well when we want to kick on the 5.1 I've never thought much about replacing it. Not only that I guess I don't like having to turn on my reciever any time I want to watch TV as well and that strangely enough has been one of my main reasons for not upgrading. My wife and kids could care less about surround and even know it's an easy option they just could live without it even know we have speakers mounted in all four corners along with a center.

That being said to have a receiver where you "have" to turn it on in order to be able to pass through things (I'm assuming that's actually the case, someone please correct me if I'm wrong) just seems like an added power consumption device. Especially if you don't really care to use it. If I told my wife & kids "sorry you can't watch TV unless you turn on the receiver" that just isn't going to fly...

I'm semi interested in this deal, so not trying to TC, but would seriously like to know what all I'd be gaining by going this route? And please nobody tell me "Oh the sound is like 110% better, cause I know that isn't the case. But please do tell Smilie

I have the 360 and it allows pass-through when powered off. You just set it to pass on one of the inputs and it'll be fine.

Several people here and elsewhere on line have commented on the HDMI link problem (after working for a while, the HDMI link to the TV stops working)and the fact that a USB-only firmware update from the Oynko site is the only way to fix it permanently (unplugging the HT-RC460 AV Receiver may fix it temporarily).
In getting the firmware to load, I learned a few things that might help others by making Oynko's instructions in the manual and on-line more clear:
One, the unzipped download consists of 3 files and a folder with 4 files, all adding up to about 71 MB.
Two, with just these unzipped items on a USB thumb drive, insert the drive in the front USB port of the HT-RC460 with the "Net" source selected.
Three, hit the "Receiver" button on the remote, followed by "Home"
Four, in the Home window select "USB"
Five, after the receiver recognizes the USB drive, return to "home" and select "update"
Six, in the update window, select "update from USB and stand back for an hour or so.
This unit gets 4 stars because it has fine features when it works; it loses a star for not shipping with updated firmware and for its poorly described update process.

Three of those devices seem to be redundant to each other.

Xbmc, wd live and roku. What's the purpose of having all three on one TV?

I would pass on this. It has a weight of 20lbs. There's something wrong with the amplifier section.

If you can, wait for a 709 deal at $350 to pop up.

I have the 360. I can't convince you to upgrade unless u are looking to get rid of a bunch of cables and go hdmi. I also really like the network feature. It has spotify which I love. Networking is what really sold me. But if u are happy with what u got then stick with it.

For those concerned about the negative reviews, I updated firmware and have not had a single problem. It is a tremendous value.

I hope 560 will be 250. need a new receiver for new house soon lol
Does adding a reciever to the mix increase lag in gaming? I'm looking for accurate measurements not subjective observations. I'm at about 60 ms delay and it is barely tolerable.

This does look like a good deal - and if you can pass through (not upconvert) without turning on the receiver, that would be pretty cool.

Wifi is extra - http://www.amazon.com/Onkyo-UWF-1...B004WR125O According to the article at AVS Forums, they have been using a DLink adapter from NewEgg for $14.99, and claim it has better range.

Reading the Amazon link ( http://www.amazon.com/Onkyo-HT-RC...B008CXTX5U ) I do like some of the Android features.

My issues with delay are caused by my TV and not my receiver. Good thing is that it has a Game setting or I can manually turn off features that increase lag. I'm assuming you have already looked at your TV, but if not, good chance it is the culprit.

No it does not. I run my xbox through this and I still wipe the floor with my opponents. nod

i dont get why they put the effort of making this "network" Receivers only able to play music. I mean they made that effort and made it DLNA compliant... why not take the extra effort to make it play video too and throw away the need for a WD Live like device.
I tend to keep my receivers for 5-10 years so I'm more interested in the ability to make sound than anything else. If you integrate all these net features they will be obsolete much faster. A roku I can buy and rebuy every year or two for more features but I don't want to have to replace my TV and Receiver every year which is why I prefer the Roku to integrated devices. IMHO of course...

Even on an older unit w/o passthrough, I had my satellite receiver connected directly to the TV to accomodate the technologically challenged, and ran optical out to the AV receiver for when I wanted surround on the TV. Win-win.

I see someone mentioned updating via USB.... since this is a network capable receiver, does it not have the ability to update itself over the network? My NR-TX509s do, so I would think this would as well. It takes all of about a minute to do. I would also assume it has passthru so there is no need to have to turn it on to watch TV (from your default source, ie cable most likely).
