Question about Pioneer VSX-49TXi Receiver
Actually, having mistakenly put an equalizer between my Pioneer Elite LD player and my Pioneer VSX-49TXi receiver, via analog ,RCA cables, it appears I have confused or ruined the sound de-coding properties of the receiver. Now I only get one front channel of sound ,or occasionaly center channel and left, or right channel, no matter what sound mode is selected. The receiver will not go back to original settings when I've used the re-set buttons (as in operators manual)or re-boot by unplugging unit. What can I do to reset,or maybe reprogam the audio chip-set (?). Is that possible ,or have I permenantly ruined the algorithm(s)? I searched the net in hopes I could find a way to download the software or something to that effect; for the chipset ,but to no avail.The receiver ,having a firewire connection made me think there may be some means of hooking my laptop to the receiver and resetting the audio ,but i haven't found any codes for that at Pioneer or other sites yet. Will I be stuck buying a new chip set or whatever, from Pioneer to fix the sound /speaker out-put problem, or is this a fixable program error? Thanx Danny F. Aspen,COOLarado
You may want to buy the service manual (SM) from Pioneer for this unit. It has a lot of info on resetting and testing the receiver under the "Test Mode". It is highly improbable that you could ruin the firmware by connecting the receiver in an unusual way. You may just need to reset it to factory specs. Another option if you bought it from a local Pioneer dealer is for them to reset. It usually involves getting into the secret menu to do so.
I had one of these for a short while and they are quite nice receiver.
