At first I could not get this unit to do everything, and called Sony, who put a real person on-line with me, then on the phone. The problem may have just been me, but the instruction manual doesn't make sense to me, and I litterally had to just push buttons, and try everything.
Everything does work, but this unit does not display itself on my television screen. I do have a 2006 1080p monitor, and it may not respond to this more modern unit, but the picture does seem sharper.
The automatic speaker settings work well, but I had to really hunt to find out how to use them the first time. Thereafter, I knew the way. The sound is slightly improved over my old 2005 7.1 Sony STR 997. The HDMI in, and out is a great improvement. Music sounds great, and fewer wires are great as well.
I plan to upgrade to a 3-D television eventually, and this unit will support that upgrade, so for the price I would advise anyone to experiment with this unit, unless you understand the manual better than I do, but it works very well.
