Need stands for the rear speakers but will bodge something to test it out tonight.
Thanks for the help deciding to buy this. I will give my feedback on the system when I am up to speed on it.

i have been using onkyo brand with several models for 15yrs or so now. i haven't had one break on me yet. you'll enjoy your onkyo. if it comes with audyssey, you'll have fun with speaker’s placement and calibration. it's the two major things in setting up surround sound system.
to get the best video and audio quality, you need to connect it this way- htpc>onkyo>hdtv via hdmi cables. you can set onkyo to passthrough video (video will be processed by htpc and hdtv and onkyo's job is to process audio).

I refused to watch movie without bitstreaming HD audio!
