Hello friends,

Here is my quick review of this system. I have had it hooked up now for about a month now and let start first off by saying the sound is incredible! The features are nice including the Ipod dock, I use it all the time when I am doing work on my computer.

The downside so far is probably a simple thing, the remote. I occasionally switch between my blu-ray to watch a movie and my cable box buttons to turn on and off the unit. There are times when the unit will not shut off. I have to hit the search button, then the TV button and then the power off button over and over before the unit shuts down. Since my TV and Blu-Ray are both Samsung, I was trying to control all the units with one remote, that does not appear to be working out so well. I have tried to code everything based on the manual, but my Tv will not power off or on with the Onkyo remote for some reason. The light on my TV blinks when I hit the remote, but nothing happens.

I am sure I have a lot to learn regarding the remote, but I would like all units to work off one remote if possible.

Over all grade: 9 out 10 because of the remote issue. This is a very impressive unit and I would highly reccommend it to anyone, which I have already!

Indeed. I have had mine for a little over a week now. It is replacing a 5.1 system that is now doing duty in my den. The difference between 5.1 DD and 7.1 TRUEHD is amazing. And I love the 7.1 Dolby ProLogic IIx mode !! :banana:

This (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000F8DBF8/ref=ord_cart_shr?_encoding=UTF8&v=glance) is the remote solution I use.

Same functionality of the Harmony remotes, at 10% the cost.
