Carried on here as not to thread hijack:

[QUOTE]
    jaymz: hey dude, sorry to go way off topic, but i notice you listed the TX-NR515 receiver and am after your experiences with it.

    Have you found any issues with the device coming out of standby?  On the AVS forums, there has been lots of people complaining that the HDMI does no re-initialize when the device comes out of standby.

    Onkyo have promised firmware fixes, but i can find little on if this fixed the issue or not.

    I not that some users have noted that turning off the LAN Standby feature seems to stop the issue.




I have the TX-NR515 and have had a few issues with it. Occasionally it doesn't correctly identify the signal / have audio when you turn it on. This is with hdmi control on, turning on the tv and the amp automatically turns on. The input is set to pc which is always left on, lan standby feature is on.
This occurred with both an older geforce 9400 card and a new ASUS GT610-SL-1GD3-L GEFORCE video card. Also, occasionally when starting to watch videos the amp identifies the signal as a 1080p 60Hz signal instead of the 1080p 50Hz signal that it is. Changing inputs on the amp to a different input and then back to the pc input gets the amp to correctly identify the signal. Have only seen this happen with flash video playback.
This is with the latest international firmware (ends in 400) loaded by usb. Also, occasionally, the (nvidia) audio device is missing and I have to reinitialise the sound to get it to identify the amp / enable the video card audio. So, no, the problems have not been fixed.

Ah that is a shame, big turn off for me with these receivers.

Will look at a nice Yamaha, or Denon instead.  Thanks for the input, i wont hijack this thread anymore :)

And this is all just bad luck for me, as it's this model of receiver I picked up for the new HT!

Did you see the Yamaha receivers the Warehouse had for sale earlier in the week? One was an entry-level model while the other seemed further up the chain.

Bugger, i am glad i took my time to look around before spending any cash!

I didnt see the ones at the Warehouse, do you remember the model number(s) of them?

Sorry, the direct link doesn't work (as the daily deals page is simply updated with the new deals each day at 10).

A Google search (https://www.google.co.nz/#hl=en&safe=off&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=the+warehouse+yamaha+receiver&fp=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&cad=b)

shows the model numbers were

RXV471
RXV2067

I can't recall the prices specifically, but they were something like $600 and $1100(??)

They were
Yamaha Av Receiver Rx V2067 Black
Similar seen $1799! NOW $ 1,199.00

and
Yamaha Av Receiver RX V471 Black
Elsewhere $999! NOW $ 599.00

Back to the Onkyo, I would be interested if anyone else trys the radeon video cards with the receiver and if they have any issues. Perhaps the different chipset works better with that receiver?

The features that that receiver has are unmatched at that price, just a shame about the implementation.

The TX-NR515 is fine for me since they fixed the major problem with resuming from standby. I'm using it with i3-2100 onboard video, and xbox 360, MySky, etc.

Just an update on the issues which I was having with the Onkyo TX-NR515 and un-synced video modes. I changed the video card for a AMD 6570 video card (passive / single slot) and I have not had any issues with the amp.
