Was on the fence but decide to do site-to-store pick-up. Gives me more time to think without worrying it sells out. If I decide I don't want it can just cancel.

Difference between this and the newer model coming out, newer model has:
No HDMI input in front(con)
Wi-fi built in(plus)
Audyssey MultEQ vs 2EQ (big plus)
Accepts 4k input, this model will upscale to 4k but not accept/pass thu 4k, as far as I can tell. (Another plus for future proofing)

Agreed. I'd wait for BB clearance on a Denon. The new firmware (i have nr-616) has solved problems, but I'm just waiting to see for how long.

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 a harmony 890 remote. wife pushes button for "Watch TV" and BAM! Magic!

~3 years and no problems yet. Plus, I would just plug it into my computer, click "Update Remote" and BAM! Magic!

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.
Can anyone who has this unit or the previous one confirm if you can still watch TV with the receiver off? Meaning will it pass through the video / audio without the receiver being on?

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.
I misrepresented a bit in that thread. I am a technology guy, hell my daily job is IT. The issue or contemplation I'm having is yes it would be nice to consolidate my cabling. Use the receiver as a hub and just spit out to the TV. What I'm saying is if there is another thing to turn on just to be able to watch TV that isn't going to fly with my wife and kids as much. I rarely watch TV myself, I watch movies and when I do I'm all about the sound, which is why I have the speakers mounted in the ceiling corners. But they could care less about that and the TV is on most of the day when I'm at work or when the kids are home.

So... What I'm getting at is if this thing supports pass through while it's off, I'd really consider getting this. However if not considering how long the TV is on per day that would probably rake up my power bill having a receiver turned on most of the day not doing anything. That is my dilemma, so if anyone can answer if this unit can still be turned off and still pass through the AV signal from the cable box to the TV I might be sold.

Thanks!

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?

XBMC machine is to tinker with, one day it will replace the WDlive, but for now it is just not there yet, it needs more development time. Also XBMC cannot do Netflix which is super important to have and keep my WDLive hooked up. Roku is redundant, but it was $40 on a slick deal and has the motion remote. I also find the interface easier for the kids. SO I leave it hooked up, even without the Roku 8 is not enough (yes there is a pun intended there).

I will NEVER buy another Non-Networking receiver video or not (why do I need my receiver to video network, should they toss a blu ray player in there too like that Samsung HW-D7000 that was the biggest POS ever?) . For me it's all about control. I love the idea of coming home or lounging around and deciding that I want to simply open up a music app on my phone or Ipad, play something, choose where I want it to play & I'm done, no picking up other remotes to switch zones or stations etc(no need to be in the same room as the receiver, no need to turn anything else on)...There are apps for these receivers that have every single control that the original remotes have as well. If I'm working on the Ipad and want to adjust anything, switch inputs, adjust levels, change channels etc etc it's all done on 1 touchscreen. Why not go network at these low prices...Picked up a pretty much brand new Yamaha RX-V473 complete open box last night for $140 + tax because it was so cheap! Can't speak on this Onkyo unit, haven't touched anything Onkyo since the 80's.
I'm the exact opposite. I would rather use other devices for networking features, and have the receiver just do one thing really well: output excellent sound quality reliably and efficiently.

Same here, I watch less and less TV, even though I'm far more into technology than most people combined.

Whether you want a networked receiver or not has no bearing on if you like technology or not LOL, simply whether you like to plant your fat ass on the TV to watch TV all day long...

After spending $2k on a system 8 years ago I have decided never again, as I use my receiver far too little to make it worthwhile.

Instead I have lots of phones / tablets / laptops for doing stuff on the go.

Pretty much the same here. Other devices can be easily updated for new features. Receivers... not so much.

Just checked out the Amazon page [amazon.com] for this receiver. It has what Onkyo calls "Hybrid Standby", so it does pass the video and audio to the TV in standby mode.

Here is Onkyo's description: "Hybrid Standby provides 'HDMI through' functionality while the receiver sleeps, so you don't have to fully power up to watch a Blu-ray or play a game using just your TV's sound."

That is great news! I'm still somewhat on the fence though considering it's spending $250 on something that when all is said and done won't really change the experience much. I need to think this through a bit more

Other than that, I've heard on here that this receiver is a great deal given the price, provided you apply some firmware update. Is there any reason not to get this receiver?

Thanks again!
