I paid a lot to fix an Onkyo receiver, took it home and found it wasn't fixed, in fact the AM tuner which had worked before, didn't work after I got it back and it still had the same problem as I took it in for originally. If they fix it properly I'll repost. Also it is a lot of travelling for repeated trips to get it fixed properly (if they can and will).
i called to find out about my tv and when we found out i didn't have any more warranty left on it, they were great in helping find a soution to my problem without it costing me an arm and a leg. the girls that were helping me out were knowledgable about my fault and were very polite and efficient.
