This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V773WABL 7-Channel AV Receiver with WiFi Adapter
Pros: 2 HDMI out, video up-scaling and iPhone / iPad remote. And ARC if it works. overall, this is a good receiver. However there are some issues. When you have a DVR connected to receiver I/P and TV connected to Receiver O/P using HDMI cable and if you switch on the TV, the receiver turns on. Good so far. You also see TV. However there is no way to get the sound. You have to "touch" the receiver (input) to get the sound. This is annoying and defeats the whole purpose of ARC. I also purchased a separate digital cable for sound but that didn't help either. Opened a ticket with Yamaha and their support was not helpful. Tried to return the receiver by filing RMA but newegg ask for 50$ shipping. This is not fair. Also I thought I got a Cyber Monday deal but the prices went down the same week. So I do not trust NewEgg sale any more. Although they do have competent pricing. But there is no big sale.
Cons: ARC does not work Yamaha support not very helpful. Zone 2 cannot play HDMI inputs. It can play only music from audio inputs.
Other Thoughts: Look for something that works 100 percent. Do your research otherwise you will be frustrated like I am. Make sure you note down all your requirements, check manual and then buy. Otherwise you will be disappointed like I am.READ FULL REVIEW
