I have an Onkyo 806 that seems to be dying. Well, at least the HDMI switching portion... Most of the time I have to restart the receiver and/or input devices to get it to "pick up" the signal. So my questions are: 1)Is this something worth fixing? 2)If not, help me pick a replacement.
1) I did not find anything in searching here on this issue. I did find a thread on AVS about a similar issue with the 876, but that model uses a different video processor.
2) If I were to look for something new, I would want something that would meet my requirements and nothing more. While the 806 is currently my main receiver, it will be "demoted" later this year to backup duty. I need 7.1 capability for my current use, but likely will only go to 5.1 in the backup room. Current inputs are Bluray player, Xbox360, and Uverse. I need something that can switch HDMI between the 3. Future use will have Xbox360, PS3, PS2, Wii, and Uverse. So it needs to be capable of switching between the 3 HDMI sources and ideally outputting the Component sources through the HDMI as well. Are any of the "budget" models from Onkyo or Denon capable of this? Currently the 806 isn't capable of doing this with the Wii.
Thanks in advance guys..
