    Hi I tried to follow these steps and still have no luck. If anyone can help, the Pioneer VSX D51 has a input jack at the back for dvd/ld and on is optical the other is coaxial.
    I have my optical cable for my home entertainment system plugged in to the optical in and have tried to plug my HP desktop computer in through the coaxial input using a coaxual cable from the digital output of the hp that is for coaxial out. i still am unsure what settings to click on the reciever unit which channel to choose etc. all i want is the sound to work. does anyone know where i can get a manual or what channel to choose to listen to the coaxial input option on the reciever unit. i i knew i was on the right channel i could do the rest from there. which channel is the coaxial input on the unit. what do i press on the remote.

    Thanks guys you really do provide a good service.

    Hi, I've a set of Pioneer VSX-D512 AV receiver. Today, when I tried to play a DVD disc, the dialogue is bearly audile but the background is perfect. The player has served me well over the year until today. I noticed that "sp-A" appeared on the panel of the receiver. I remembered vividly this may have caused the problem of the dialogue getting soft! May I know how to turn off this 'sp-A' or make it disappear from the receiver? Thank you very much.

Try to disconnect everthing and use only the coax, and find the right input until you hear the sound from your PC. Use your remote to help your problem, and the unit buttons.

All you have to do is connect the coaxial out from pc to any audio i/p at the back of vsx d512.but ensure you select the right channel to play the audio ( eg. tape i/p select tape at front control, aux i/p select the aux at front control )

    you are almost there,the only problem is you get the wrong output from the HP computer (digital output).you should get the audio output.the output that is green in color normally connected to specker unit.that cable can buy from any electrical hardware shop,one end of the cable is RCA type the other is like normal mp3 headphone type.

Pioneer amplifier vsx-d512 overload message


This indicates the audio output stage in the receiver is loading down and triggering the overload protection circuit to kick in. Check the speaker wires for shorts, if okay! you will need a professional to assess the cost for repair.

I'd like to know where the vcr cable & cable wire from wall


(I own 2 VSX-D903S Units.)

There are NO optical (Toslink) or coaxial connections for Satellite or Cable-TV on this Pioneer unit.

The coaxial connector on the receiver is for connection to an external antenna for FM Tuner (radio) reception only.

Your cable line from the wall would go to your Cable Box, or a "cable-ready" TV or VCR. You would then connect the composite (YLR) or S-video output A/V (S+LR) connection to the VCR 1 input on the back of the receiver. Connect your TV L/R audio and S-video or Composite video output to the TV in connection on the Receiver. (Connect the Composite TV-out connection to a composite video-in connection on the TV.)

The best way to do this (if you haven't done this already) is to enable the Dynamic Range Control. This neat little setting makes the difference between loud and soft to be not so much, making soft sounds (like talking in your case) louder and something like explosions not so loud. This is also called Midnight Mode on some receivers. To enable this setting, grab your remote and turn the receiver on. Press the "Receiver" button, then hit the left arrow on the remote until you see something along the lines of "Dynamic range control" pop up on the LCD (should be the 8th setting). You probably want to set this to "Max", but you can also select "Mid" if you find that Max does too much.

If this still does not work, you can bump up the relative volume of the center channel a bit (or a lot of bit). Hit the "Standard" button on your remote, then "Test Tone" until "C" or "Center" comes up on the LCD. Then hit the "Level +" button a few times, making the center channel a little louder. Listen to it a while and adjust it to your liking.

The combination of these two settings should get you where you want to be. By the way, do a search on your favorite search engine for something like "manual Pioneer VSX-D512" and you should be able to download a manual from somewhere (it looks like Pioneer no longer hosts the manual on their site). Hope this helps!

Overload Problem


If your rec'vr worked with the original front and rear speakers, the new speakers are either defective or ar the wrong impedance.
Also, I find this confusing: "I connected the wiring for 1 of the front speakers to the connection on the rear of the receiver". This may indicate wrong wiring connection. Make sure you have connected the speakers properly

Pioneer vsx-d510 coaxial dvd connection problem


Hello,
I recommend you use an optical connection. Your VSX-D510 has only one optical input, but I believe it is assignable. Use a good optical cable and connect directly to your DVR. Follow the manual to assign the input and it should work.
Good luck

Video input not recognized for LD and DVD


By coaxial, do you mean the composite (yellow)? Either way you have to use the same style no matter what the cable. I mean, if you have s-video's IN to the reciever then you need S-videos OUT to the TV. ....Component IN to the reciever? then Component OUT to the TV. And so on. You cant have composite cords going into the reciever and use a component cord out to the TV (with the exception of a few models).
