Amazon reviews, AVSForum, etc.) with Sony TVs. FWIW, I'll mostly be watching movies via my PS3 and HDA3.
I had zero HDMI problems with my 70" XBR2, I have heard of some dropout problems but it seems real hit & miss.
One guy with model X TV has problems but several others with the same TV has no problems.
If you buy it at a good dealer just tell them if you have any problems you want to return it & you shouldn't have any problems.
If you do buy a 3808ci make sure you download the newest firmware update & the free (to new purchases) firmware upgrade that adds new Audsessy features.
before you run the Audessy setup the first time.
Good luck & let us know how it works out!
