Out of the Blue

In keeping with yesterday's 45th anniversary of the first Star Trek, I've been catching up on the show, albeit with The Next Generation. Being the old school guy I am, I've seen every episode of the original series, but there are significant gaps in my TNG experience, so I started from the beginning, which given the up-and-down nature of the first season, I think shows exceptional dedication.

Yea, the HDMI passthrough didn't work out of the box, but I figured it was such a new technology that I wasn't surprised that it didn't work, so I had to use an optical cable to the TV to get sound for games, etc.

Looking back, I should have brought the thing back, as the HDMI passthrough is also a widely known problem.

Oh well. Live and learn.

Sounds like a home theater in a box type deal, those things are notorious for being ripoffs and dying early. Oh well, hindsight is always 20/20. Good names in the receiver biz are Onkyo, Yamaha, Marantz and etc. Just don't count on the manufacturer warranties, if you're spending ~$300 then get a better replacement warranty from a third party.
