Playstation 3 not working with older model Pioneer AV receiver
I have an older-model Pioneer AV receiver, bought in 2003. It is, i believe, this model: c. My question is this: i'm attempting to hook up a Playstation 3 through this receiver, using the component input on the back, and it simply will not show a picture. Using a standard dvd player, or my TiVo, it works fine, but PS3 will not show up. Is this model capable of accepting a PS3?

Re: Playstation 3 not working with older model Pioneer AV...
If you have set the component output on the ps3 for high def,ie 720p or 1080i and do not get a picture it sounds like the component input is not high def enabled on your amp,change the setting on ps3 to standard 576 output,or put picture into tv then sound into amp if you want to run 720p or 1080i.

You have a tape monitor button switched on. Release it, but turn the volume to zero first! For more information, or should you have any further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.
All sound should go directly from its origin to the sound systm. All video should go directly from the source to the TV if it has enough inputs. NO signal ever benefits from unnecessary routing and cabling to or through a device that neither uses nor improves it.
Hint: TV's don't improve the sound or even need it if you have a hi-fi..
I went to Pioneerusa.com then support then home audio video then older models. They list a 49 and a 51. No 50. You can download any manual from their site for free. Is it a USA model? if not, post a comment and I will find the info for you. Hope this helps
no, u cant use the speakers with other normal DVD player because it wont have amplification for the speakers... u can use the sub to other dvd player because its inbuilt 120 watt woofer. ur dvd player is 5-disc player as wel as 120 X 2 and 80 X 3 watts amplifier (AV receiver ).... so just the JVC better sound thru the sub and speakers... ENJOY
The First step in this would be to Check the Ohms Limit in the Manual and Compair to the Ohms on the Speakers that you are running and the Ones that came with it. Usually when you By the "Kit" the Speakers are Factory Matched with the Reciever. Let me Know!
The receiver that came with your speakers should have a digital input for a dolby digital source. On the back of the receiver it's probably labled "digital coax" or it could be an optical as well.
Your new Blu-Ray has these outputs on the back. it's as simple as getting the correct cable and selecting that input on the receiver.
To make sure you get the right cable, look at the back of the receiver, and the blu-ray. Look for the digital input on the receiver, and get a cable that matches that. It's either a single RCA cable, or an optical.
So when done, you will have the HDMI or Component out from the Blu-Ray going to the TV, and the digital audio going to the receiver. To hear the sound through the receiver, just go to that input on the receiver.
