Pioneer VSX-AX4AVi-S HDMI connection to PS3. HDMI light flashing just cannot get an image or sound. Very frustrated. If someone could give me a step by step advice on what to do it would be greatly appreciated. PS3 works through TV ok.

I heard that a firmware update is out (which could help solve this problem), but it requires you to send the unit for service, which is unavailable in my region.

No sound out of the pioneer vsx-1121-k


Hello,
Try removing all the speaker and the HDMI connections; then use a headphone to listen to music from the tuner or a CD in stereo mode. Better in direct mode. If you hear your music correctly the receiver could be working correctly. If no music is heard, you may need to have it repaired professionally.
If you can hear music, connect the main FL & FR speakers and verify you can hear music that way, without the headphone connected.
If you can hear music that way, connect the center and rears. Try a mode that uses all channels to verify all sound channels are working.
Then, and only then start adding your HDMI connections.
Good luck

Make sure that whatever input you are using is set for hdmi audio. You may have mistakenly changed the input mode.

Can the Pioneer VSX-74TXVi support 1080p video resolution thru HDMI? I have PS3 and I cannot get 1080p thru my TV unless I go to the TV directly and bypass the receiver.


No. Your receivers HDMI version is 1.1 It was the first, and as always, riddled with compatability issues. Nothing you have should be run thru this receiver via HDMI, use your receiver for digital audio switching via optical or coaxial digital. If you really want all the HDMI info and problems; google hdmi forums. There are hundreds that specifically deal with this issue and all the specifics you could ever ask for. Long of the short of it though, Version 1.1 will not work and can not be updated by firmware. Also, it's not Pioneer's nor any other MFG's receiver's problem it's 80% recording industry trying to protect copyright on video, and 20% poor design by HDMI and not forward thinking. Hope this eases the frustration!

HDMI Compatibility


It sounds to me like you have a HDMI Control issue. It sounds like the DVD player wants to control the receiver. Try turning off hdmi control on the TV, reciever, and the dvd player in their setup menus.


Let me know if this helped,


Joe
