Hello. I currently have an Onkyo TX-DS494. I like it and all, but it's a bit old and I would love to replace it. Now, I am currently looking at the Onkyo HT-RC430. It has HDMI and HD audio, just like what I was looking for, but I still can't find if it is 1080p compatible. Onkyo's website says the the inputs are 1080p "capable", which may mean that it supports input in 1080p, but down scales it. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, or any new suggestions. Preferably any receiver on walmart.com for less that 200 dollars, because I have a gift card. Thanks in advance.

Typically Onkyo calls a receiver "1080P capable" because it doesn't scale. So, essentially, the 430 is irrelevant in the "HDMI video chain".

OK. Thank you very much. Would you recommend the Harman Kardon AVR 1700?

The 430 is fully capable of passing 1080P. It won't down-scale it. It's a very basic avr by todays standard but it will give you 1080P, 3D and Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio. Basically it supports the very best audio and video available today. Any receiver that is HDMI 1.4 will. Which is virtually all new receivers. The H/K 1700 would be a decent step up with it's EZSetEQ automatic setup and room eq and for $200 at BestBuy it's a decent value. It's closer to the Onkyo 515 in performance. But I would bet the 430 would work very well for you as well
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

One other thing, does the Onkyo receiver have network connectivity, so that I can use the android app?

Nope http://www.onkyousa....ss=Receiver&p=i So you can find also the one more to your liking. Which would probably be the NR414.

The RC430 is a de-contented SR313. The RC460 is a de-contented NR616. Otherwise, the NR models are networked...as that is what the N stands for.

So, should I go with the Harman Kardon AVR 1700, or the Onkyo NR-414? Sorry for asking too many questions, just want to get the best bang for the buck.

Which one has the most features you'll use? Pick that one.
