Sound 'changes' when using different input sources

Most everything about the sound of my pioneer 6.1 stereo changes when i change from one input source to another. When the radio/cd is playing, sound is good. When listing to the tv/cable/dvd, background music and effects sounds are decent, but voices are muted. I also have to turn the volume up much higher for the tv. I have tested all speakers, adjusted decibel levels, checked speaker placement, checked wire hookups.. don't know what else to try. Help?

Rear speakers on vsx1122 not playing, they tested okay


Manually change your surround settings for your satellite box input. Your box may not be putting out a signal that the receiver auto-detects as a surround sound signal, thus it just plays in stereo.

No sound thru pioneer equaliser from quatrron tv


There are two way to do this.
1. Connect all your devices individually to the Pioneer receiver. Doing this allows you so have different sound settings for each input. A reason you might want this is that your DVD will need a DTS or Dolby sound setting so that you get the best audio from your DVD, whereas your TV may only be outputting stereo audio. In this case you would set your Pioneer to a stereo setting.
2. Connect your devices to the Sharp display, then connect the audio output of the Sharp to a free audio input on the Pioneer.
Your Sharp LED TV has two ways to do this: a. If you have a digital capable Pioneer sound system, connect using the "Digital Audio Output". You will need a Toslink (Optical) cable for this connection. b. If you only have analog capabilities in your Pioneer sound system, you must use the 3.5mm (1/8 Inch) analog audio output from the Sharp TV to stereo RCA (red and white plugs that are most commonly supplied with home theatre product).

Got button happy on cable remote and now can't get sound back coming through the stereo receiver OR the TV internal speakers. Have been trying to get sound back for hours w/o success. Can you help? ...


Somewhere here you changed the input on your TV and or Pioneer. The TV audio output should be on the input of your Pioneer. Make sure that you change the input selection on the Pioneer to match where you have your audio input on the back of your Pioneer. So many of these devices have multiple inputs and outputs. They should be labeled on the back. Once you find that out you should then go to your remote and select the proper audio input from the menu. Let me know if that helps and we can try a couple other things. Also make sure your TV output from the tv is on to send it to the stereo unit.

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?


your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

Pioneer vsx 90txv and bose EQ


I wrote this for a different receiver, but if you account for minor differences to your receiver this will work just fine.

There's good news and bad news. The bad news you need a separate amp because a multichannel receiver with Bose 901's attached as recommended for a standard stereo receiver will only sound right in STEREO on stereo analog material. The other speakers around the room are not designed to receive its Active Equalization and if you engage your Tape Monitor you will NOT BE ABLE TO HEAR DIGITAL sources at all. Tape Monitor is for analog stereo material only and on modern AV receivers it disables any digital inputs so you really can't use the Tape Monitor circuit or attached devices for modern digital sources. However, you can still employ the various DSP options to spread 2-channel analog source material around the room. I do.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what you want to do and it works great! With one caveat - My receiver actually has 5.1 analog Outputs so I can drive up to 6 external amplifiers if I want to (I drive 4). IF yours does NOT (*) we have to be creative in extracting the front two channels from your multi-channel receiver. The obvious alternative place would be at one of the few OUTputs on the back, assuming you have one free to use.

* I can't find your exact manual so I have to extrapolate features.

I see on the SR>6003< there are Pre Audio OUTS so I'm betting your receiver does, too.

A separate stereo amp for the 901's was my solution. I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers and the Rear Surround channel, with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center and Surround speakers.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Front Pre Out; (or VCR or Tape Out if you don't have Pre Outs) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.


Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

*** If you use a Tape or VCR Out you will NOT be able to SELECT the source you use for the 901 Pre-Outs for listening, or else the 901's will not get any sound sent their way. DO NOT USE the monitor switch for that source.

Sound Just Stopped Working


I have the same problem with my 49txi, and I called pioneer and a repair shop as well. Both told me that the 49txi has a known problem with over heating and that its boards unsolder themselves. I would have thought Pioneer would stand behind something this expensive, but that was the old Pioneer in the 80s, and the new Pioneer says we are on our own.

Video issues w/ Pioneer VSX-816 AV Receiver


Receivers generally cannot or will not convert from one input type to a different output. That's not to say there may not be some high end models around that do that.

I have this receiver and have it setup as follows. Monitor out Component, S-Video, and the Composite video channel (since I have surround sound I have no interest in getting audio to the TV since I keep its speakers off anyways) to their different inputs on the TV. Warning on some TV's if you plug in S-Video you cannot then use composite on that same input channel as it will override and disable the composite. Then you only need to choose the appropriate input on the TV when you switch sources. In my case Tivo is S-Video, DVD is component, and most of my older video games and VCR are composite.

Having a TV that allows you to change the labels for the input channels is helpful with teaching others that may be less adept, or a snazzy remote that you can program to do everything at once.
