Onkyo NR686 faulty HDMI board


Novice Member
My receiver hasn't been displaying any menu for a while and gave me blue screen a couple of days ago so I sent it to onkyo service center.

They called me yesterday and they confirmed what I felt, the hdmi board is faulty and needs to be replaced. But they don't have stock of the NR686 HDMI board (will take around to months to be shipped) so they offered to install the HDMI board for the NR676 instead and they claim there is no difference between the two except the name of the Bluetooth connection.

I told them to hold off until I do some research and see if that's feasible. Does anyone have any idea that what they are claiming is right? Or should I wait two months until the 686 part gets shipped to them?
