Pioneer vsx-d850s Home theater help needed

Hope I am at the right place. If not, I am sure someone will tell me! Just installed my new(above) receiver ACCORDING TO THE BOOK, which is a POS by the way. Anyhow, am running a dvd, cd, vcr, Satellite and cable into a non-digital tv. CD,VCR(non digital)(tapes), and Satellite signal work great and am getting great sound. Haven't got my DVD player hooked up yet. Problem is when I want to run my cable tv channels. I have to increase the receiver volumn by almost double to get the same desired sound as cd/satellite/vcr input. I am running my cable input into the satellite box, A/V cables to the receiver and video(cable) coax into the vcr, and from the vcr to the TV. Do I still have to run my TV thru the vcr, ala the old days, to get my cable sound signal thru the home theater???? What the heck am I missing here Thanks! Rick When I play DVD's the sound is great but when I watch TV I have to turn it up double as well. I have a Onkyo HT-R560

Hello,thats a first and he is completely wrong.The sound will arrive at the stereo at the same time it arrives at the cable box or the tv,depending on what source the stereo is hooked up to.Without going too in depth he is referring to center channel delay which is a feature in some home theaters created to induce a delay when its required, most notably when a projector is used.

Bose 901 connection to Pioneer VSX-917v Receiver


any pre-out should work. i believe the bose have a rca jack connector for attaching to the receiver. look at the new receiver connection diagram. any output that is rca designed for use by a recording device will send a signal that the 901's can see.
always check the manual on both before connecting for any precautions.
good luck

Installation Help


This means that you have purchased a three piece home theatre system. Two tweeters and a sub-woofer. Assuming you are using a Stereo player (Tape/CD/DVC)you have to connect the Left Output of the Stereo placer to the Left Input at the back of the Sub-Woofer and the Right output to the Right input of the subwoofer by cables. Then take tweeters and connect them to Right speaker and Left speaker output at the back of the sub-woofer ( note if the speakers are marked L/R, then connect them to the subwoofer output accordingly. In case you are using a 5.1 player, then only connect the front right and front left to the Right and Left input at the back of the subwoofer. You are and you can now start playing your music or movies and and you will get theatre quality sound.
