Question about Pioneer PureVision PDP-4340HD 43 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Please help I have a Pioneer 4360. Its hooked up via an HD cable box via an HDMI cable into the input 3. THe tv works for about 30 minutes before the monitor turns itself off (and the media box blinks with a blue light.) I have tried to set and play with the setting but nothing changing this outcome. I though it was the media box was too hot. but I have a fan back there and its well within the temp constraints supplied by pioneer. Please help me with any solutions. This is getting very frustraing. I thought it was the cable signal. But now I am starting to think its the TV itself. Also when the TV is off (both the media box and Monitor have a red light) after a bit of time the media box will again have a flashing blue light.... I don't use the TV guide feature at all either. Again..PLEASE HELP QUICK!!! THanks so much..

    This is the second cable box I have had.
    I don't think its the box, unless the tv shuts off when the cable "Refreshes the signal" and if that is the case then I just cant have it hooked up to cable?? that doesn't make sense...not sure what to do at this point.
    Thanks for the help...

    Just a note when I say Media box I mean the box that came with the TV. Not the cable HD/DVR box. The CABLE/DVR box has been replaced twice.

    Again.. any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Could also be the cable, set are now designed if no signal to shutdown, so first check media box by calling cable company and or replace and try another just to make sure.

I have a JVC HD-70FH97 hooked to my digital box, via HDMI cable, and connected to the TV HDMI input 1. I cant get my surround system to work - any ideas what im doing wrong?

Check your HDMI audio settings. It may be trying to send a signal that is incorrect. How is the wiring setup? cable box to stereo, then to Tv?

HDMI only works after warming up??

The HDMI inputs do a lot of hand shaking and while hand shaking they sometimes miss the grip. It is all about data and communication not being seen or understood. Sometimes it is a Software issue and the TV and or Dish Box needs the HDMI Software upgraded if available for the respected models. If the Component cables work well and they should, I would just use them. The picture quality is just as good and it works every time.
Hope this helps,

Recently purchased this reciever, and in reading the manual, I cannot tell if it will work if I hook my Comcast HDMI to one of the HDMI inputs (Input 2)? In general, i will be only hooking up the Cable box...

It should work fine. The Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K has been made so that it can accept 4 HDMI inputs (of which 3 are assignable, and 1 is for the BD player)
If you still have a problem, you can resort to the Official Thread on the Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K on avsforum. A lot of helpful guys out there, and a very active thread.

42" Sanyo HDTV with 3 HDMI Inputs

Everybody is having problems with sony products and HDMI cables. It's on a lot of forums. So, your not alone.
Most of the solutions are:
1. Unplug your TV for 30 mins.
2. Plug TV back in and put it on HDMI for PS3.
3. Hold down the power button for 10secs on the PS3
That should solve the problem.

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...

The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.

Need help hooking up TV, BluRay, Home Theatre & cable box

I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.

So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:
  1. HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
  2. Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
  3. BluRay Player to TV: HDMI cable
I hope this helps someone else.

Lable in Righthand corner on INPUT1 wont go away

When an HD cable box or satellite receiver is connected with HDMI, the information banner in the corner of the screen does not go away when the TV is on that input. The Plasma Display automatically selects an appropriate screen size when video signals are received from a connected HDMI equipment. The TV's attempt to search for aspect ratio information through the HDMI connection can cause the information banner to stay on the screen, if the data is not found. To turn off the Auto Size, please follow these steps: 1 Press HOME MENU. 2 Select (Option). ( / then ENTER) 3 Select (Auto Size). ( / then ENTER) 4 Select (OFF). ( / then ENTER)
