This review is from: Onkyo HT-RC560 7.2-Channel Network AV Receiver
Pros: Worked fine for about 2 weeks.
Cons: HDMI audio problems just like all the other reviews. Sometimes no audio output at all, sometimes won't decode AC3 or DTS, and sometimes works perfectly (for about 10 minutes till audio cuts out again).
I would NOT recommend this to anybody. Onkyo has known about this problem for several years and has not fixed it yet. Luckily I submitted my RMA request on the 30th day or else I would be stuck with a boat anchor. Waiting for NewEgg to refund me because they do not stock this item any more.
Other Thoughts: Another very poor feature is the power management. 99% of the time I am using an HTPC as source for video, and when the computer goes to sleep, the receiver will just output a solid blue screen onto my TV. Normal behavior is that when the PC goes to sleep, it stops display output, and the TV will go to sleep after no activity. The way that Onkyo has it set up the TV will NOT go to sleep because of the blue screen. Very disappointed.READ FULL REVIEW
