Right now I'm debating on 4 different models.All are entry level.Basically it's gonna come down to which I can get for the best price.

1.Pioneer VSX 522-K
2.Yamaha RX V371
3.Denon AVR 1312
4.Onkyo TX SR313

The Denon seems to be to be the cheaper of the 4.But,all are very close in price.

I have that same model Onkyo and it works very well.

How would you rate the sound output/wattage?Read one complaint that said they had to turn the volume pretty high.Which I'm already used to with my old pioneer.17-18 is where I have to run it normally.

You can't determine output that way...not apples to apples. My current Pioneer runs at about 45.

The $10/month credit was there, but I had to call back about the $35. It did not get credited properly.

Yeah I got the Roku no problem. It was the $10/Mo that didn't show up :( .

I also contacted them on day 1 yet it didn't show up :( .

I wonder what's going on here. Is Dish just counting on people not checking their bills? I had to argue with Dish to get them to instate my $10/Mo here a month later when I found out that it wasn't applied to the new statement. They said there were no notes about the discount for my account and they were pretty much telling me that since I got the Roku then that's that. I asked them if they keep transcripts of the chats and they said yes but they didn't have access to them (how convenient.) I saved a transcript of the conversations (did in the chat) but I feel like it doesn't matter anyway. I did have the ID or whatever of the loyalty specialist so maybe that helped. Anyway long story short they claim that they have applied the credits now and I got in touch again and they show notes about it now, however I'm not going to know until 9/3 if they're lying to me again... Really frustrating because it's one thing if they don't want to give it to me (and say no) but it's another if they tell me they're going to do it then when I get in touch they make it out as if no such thing occurred.

Can you guys see online somewhere where the credits are applied? Did you see it before your next bill was generated? I figured it would be in the "My Programming" section but so far I'm not seeing it and Dish claims that it won't show up there until the next bill is generated...

Yes about 24 hours after they said it was done you can look at your billing online. It won't show a breakdown with the credit, but your current balance will be lower than usual by 10 dollars.

Yeah, it didn't break it down on mine either but the balance due was correct and when my current bill was ready it WAS there as well. Mine was lower for the month $45 ($35 + $10 off).

Mine showed up on the hopper using the "My Account" tile under Menu soon after I called.

I initially called when amc went off the air and all they would give me was the $10 off for 6 months. I received the e-mail about Hell on wheels on August 3rd and I could call in to see what they can do to allow me to see it. I called in and they offered me a one time credit of $30.00 and a roku to allow me to access Amazon streaming.

I was offered and took the Roku and $10 for 12 months.
Last month the bill was $10 lower (no benefit on tax) but just got the new billing and it's back up.
Maybe it will come in later but I'd hate to lose the remaining $110.
I have held off returning a 622 and still have 2 722s for fear that any change will kill the rebate.
Ideas?
