Question about Pioneer VSX-D912 Receiver

1 Answer

Video input not recognized for LD and DVD

I have a Pioneer VSX-D912. I just added a new HDDVD player to the system so I changed some coneccitons. The old DVD recorder was hooked to using GBR cables. To accomidate the HD DVD I switched back to the old coaxial video cable. Now I only have sound, but no video. I also now do not have any video through any coaxial cables (the wii hooked to the video input or the old Laser disc hooked to the dvd input). Do I need to "reset" the receiver so it recognizes the old coaxial inputs? I tried unplugging and re-starting but it did not help.

Re: 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).

The buttons assigning DVD, TV, VCR, etc suddenly changed their assignments. DVD was now TV, VCR was now DVD, etc. I don't think it all happened at once either. Now I can't get sound from the...

There are facilities to CHOOSE the digital assignment. I've seen where extended power loss will randomly lose custom settings. Open the manual.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D912. I just switched to HD Sat. When I hook into the component ports, I get no picture. When I use the DVD port I do get a picture.

I have exaclty the same problem. DVD into comp in 1, and my Homecast HT8000 into comp in 2 on my D912.

The dvd gets a picture.

The TV does not.

Looking at the settings I have "Component video Input" set correctly.

I'll add that when I do switch from DVD to TV, I get a scrabled vision of what is on TV for about half a second befoe the TV itself says "No, I can't display that" and gives me the blue screen of 'no signal'

Optical inputs

In short yes!

If you have two optical inputs and two equipment (PS3 and HDVD) then you shouldnt have a problem at all. Just make sure you change the mode of the receiver to TV/SAT when you want to use the HDDVD. Your problem may be the video out put.

If i was you i would do the following:

1. Get rid of all your optical cables as you won't need it.
2. If your receiver support HDMI then by default HDMI will send both video and digital sound.
3. Plug the HDMI of the PS3 to the HDMI input of the receiver, plug the HDMI of the HDDVD player into the HDMI 2 of the receiver and plug 1 HDMI cable from the receiver to the tv/monitor you have.

That is the best set up so when you play PS3 you select dvd/ld and when you watch hddvd you select tv/sat.

However having said all that the fact that you have dvd/ld suggests you actually don't have HDMI at all on the receiver(...i just checked the specs of the receiver). Which means you will need to have 2 hdmi inputs for your tv and you will need to have the 2 optical connections.

But in short yes to your question.

hope this is not too confusing.

good luck

DVD movies do not play

A blue screen means the TV is not receiving a video signal. Check all connections, then try another player, cable, etc. Also, check DVD and TV AV settings.
