I’m in for one. Read all the reviews on Amazon. Lots of comments on failed HDMI and video issues. So I am taking a chance. Let’s hope they addressed the issues on this refurbish unit.
I will update if issues arise.
The first bumper sticker says 7.1, but this is a 7.2 receiver. What gives?!
[MOD: Booboo. It’s a 7.2 system.]
Yes, the HDMI issues have been addressed for quite a while. You can look at previous discussions to see the Onkyo reps posts on this topic.
I bought this receiver new on Amazon for 299.99. It is pretty awesome. I keep it open to airflow just in case the Video board heats up too much.
Is it possible to input multiple HDMI and output to component? Will it convert on board? My projector has component input and it would be nice to network incoming signals to a single unit prior to breakout to TV and projector.
This looks like the same receiver I bought a few weeks ago (also a refurb). Only been using it for a week or two, but so far so good. I’ve read alot of bad things about Onkyo (and some other audio receiver brands) that have had problems with HDMI video boards. This was replacing a Pioneer Elite receiver that had its HDMI board go bad after 2 years and 1 month.
For anyone getting this receiver, be advised that the audio configuration via included microphone is quite loud!
It will allow switching of multiple HDMI inputs to a single output, but it will not convert incoming HDMI signals to component out. It upconverts everything to the higher levels. Composite to component and HDMI. Component to HDMI. It does not down covert. In fact, the component inputs on this receiver are very few. If your projector only has a component input and you have many HDMI sources, if you buy this receiver, I would suggest an HDMI to component converter which is hit-and-miss on quality of output depending on the manufacturer.
Avaialable on the Mothership (rhymes with cramazon.com) site new for $299. Purchased one about a month ago. Went new for warranty because of hdmi/motherboard possible issues. Like Onkyo, replaced an older TX-SR706 that Onkyo refused to repair, even though they know of this hdmi issue).
Really like the network connection for Pandora and other music sites.
Sound is very good, happy with the unit.
NOTE: Check with your credit card company, most will extend warranty on purchases.

Thank you sir! Confirms my suspicion.
I’ve had 2 Onkyo receivers. They have lots of problems with the HDMI boards. If you check the forums they have problem losing audio. I have to reset mine every time I start it up to get any sound. A refurb like this may have repaired the problem. This model is discontinued.
[MOD: This model is not discontinued. HDMI issues have been fixed for a while now.]
I bought this a while back refurb. It may as well been new as I couldn’t tell that it had ever been touched before me.
It’s a good unit, good sound. As previously stated it doesn’t support conversion of signals. If you run hdmi in that is all you will get out as far as I can tell. I couldn’t get standard sound out when doing a mock up of my theater room.
The wifi is clunky and I doubt I will use it. It is NOT 7.2. It is 7.1 with two sub outputs which is different. (although not a big deal IMO).
The setup is easy and I was surprised at how good it sounded just going through the mic setup.
I paired mine with the monoprice premium speakers and it’s really tough to beat the total package price. For under 600 bucks total you get a couple thousand bucks worth of sound.
I bought one of these from the mother ship in early January. When the HDMI issues were being discussed on a previous sale of this item, the Onkyo rep told me they’d fix my old 606 for free (purchased in 2008, two bad HDMI, fortunately I had the original receipt they wanted to see). I dropped it off last week, place is like 35 minutes away, but it saved on shipping. I love the 606, it has served me well, and it will go into the finished basement to better drive the home theater setup down there. I love the wifi on the new 626, I have Pandora going all the time.
Down to $299 at B&H now.

Hello ajm56; unfortunately none of our receivers will down convert fromHDMI to COMPONENT video. It will up convert from COMPONENT or COMPOSITE video to HDMI- but not vice versa. Question: how many inputs would you like to utilize the COMPONENT VIDEO connection with?
