I have the 360 and love it. The one feature the 460 has that makes me consider an upgrade is dual HDMI outputs. I have a 50" plasma and a 1080p with 92" projector screen. Sure would be nice to be able to change output via remote.

Repped. Thanks OP.

Still using my Harmon Kardon 7.1 AVR240 I got on clearance from target for $140 6 years ago, the thing still does what it's supposed to (like dolby and DTS decoding as well as 7.1 REALLY well). doesn't have hdmi or network streaming, got a HTPC for that (connected optically to the receiver).

A receiver must do the basics well, all the other stuff like hdmi switching and network access is what creates problems for most of the traditional receiver manufacturers.

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).
Yes, all you have to do is connect to the internet and update. Takes a good bit of time though. Want to say 30 minutes? But it's painless.

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
You need an AVR with hdmi standby pass thru. Most Yamaha receivers have this option, as well as many others. Not sure about Onkyos. You don't need to turn on the receiver. The sound is passed thru to the TV speakers with the receiver in standby.

An ONKYO is an ONKYO is an ONKYO.

Have the 1522-K for my main unit and the HTR-7065 for the basement. Don't need this Heat easily, fail easily, lousy warranty and frequently replace brand. Had my experiences with them in the past though.

A good Brand receiver is worth it's weight in gold.

I am tired of waiting for Pioneer 1522-K in Houston, and I don't think they will have anytime soon. Is this Onkyo better than 1522? If 1522K is better then I will have to grab one from Ebay maybe used one.

Thinking about picking this up. Never had a problem with my current Onkyo, just wish it had more HDMI inputs. This one should be good on that for a while. As a side note...i don't even know if my tv speakers work. We have always used the receiver for all of our sources...isn't that the point of a receiver? Harmony remotes are wonderful for the family.

Seriously, why bother to come into this post for a $250 receiver just to brag that you have a $800 one?

Personally, I have far, far better things to do with my money than piss it away on an audio receiver that I use for the occasional movie or tv series.

Also, after the firmware updates on the Onkyos, it's generally reported that the heat issue is decreased, hdmi failures are decreased... warranty is 2 years on a new product.

Just check all the stores. It is available only in some in Atlanta, Ga and went like hot cakes in some stores. The 1522-K has it's problems like needing Firmware upgrade, slow HDMI switching etc. but does offer a lot more features for the price. No problems with overheating and has been pretty good so far in the short while I have had it. The like and am using the 9.2. The Audio is way better than even the 7.2 HTR-7065 Yamaha. But I have had good experiences with Yamaha in the past and Pioneer as well - my 8 yr old pioneer 513K is still running strong after almost 10 years and use it in the bedroom.

Also WARNING all the folks to stay away from this brand. Save your money and buy a nicer brand - even if it's last year's model. Ignore the BONKYO salesman on this thread.

Given your comments, its obvious that you're someone that's quite averse to technology...or simply mildly interested, to be generous. I honestly can't see why you'd even visit this thread. Yes, some of us do need/want 8 (or, in our case, even more than 8) HDMI inputs, but you apparently don't need anything more than 8W speakers in your TV. Just keep your current setup, as this recevier is likely to give you headaches and be absolute overkill for your very modest needs.

Btw, just because someone has nice electronics in their home, it has no bearing on how much they enjoy other aspects of life, such as "seeing the sun." Your comment would have other thinking that one who owns quality sporting equipment couldn't possibly enjoy reading. Or one who has a huge library is nothing more than a nerdish bookworm. Life is full of variety, as are most people. bulb

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.
Yes, these are suppose to be audio/video receivers. So when first looking for an A/V receiver, I assumed networking meant it could handle audio and video. Nope. Not yet anyway, seems like these A/V receivers are still lacking in the V part of the equation in terms of networking. Honestly though, a budget media PC blows away built-in receiver and add-on devices in terms of flexibility and control, plus you get another PC out of the deal. I am more than satisfied with my media PC and Denon non-networked receiver.

Also for those who are concerned with wanting to watch TV without running audio through their receivers. I would first question why you would want to take the time and spend the money assembling a nice audio system, only to then watch TV using the crummy TV speakers. Least ways, no one in my family is interested in using the home theater without the nice audio. Also, for those who think their pass-through audio is saving lots of money, you may be surprised what pass-through is costing you 24/7. Check your receiver specs to be sure, because some Onkyos were pulling significant watts in certain standby modes.

I hope Amazon will sell this model directly and price match ( fingers crossed ) ... I just can't / won't give my hard earned money to Walmart and the Walton family ( maybe literally the worst major corporation and owners in the entire world ) TYT here Peace.

Come on. All models and brands have issues. I have had my current Onkyo for over 6 years and never had an issue. I had a Sony receiver before that for 10 years. Onkyos were a great brand 6 years ago...did they just dropp off or something? I was going to get a Yamaha instead of my Onkyo but they were having numerous issues so I picked the Onkyo.

yup... remember HDMI without audio pass through.

Quote from Blindsorrow View Post :
That's how the marketing of receivers works... they trickle features each year little by little, to give you a reason to upgrade again and again, as they continue to "improve" their products year after year. So, the video streaming capability will probably be available in 1-2 years on the top of the line models and eventually be on the lower end 4-5 years after that.
