Re: cannot see dvd picture
If you have the "dvd bypass hookup" dont worry about the E-brake, go to the background setting screen and make sure it is set to "no image"...unfortunately with this system, you cannot set a background image and play videos at the same time.

the region code means the player does not support the disc your playing each country is given a region code for dvd australias is region 4 if you buy a dvd from another country it wont work you can get multi region codes for dvd players im not sure of pioneers code but try using a dvd from your country region and youl find it works just fine you can also try asking a tech on fixya for the multi region code for the model dvd player you have.
I can't find a picture of it/them but in general you want to get the BEST audio to your hifi electronics and let stereo-only TV-related audio go TO the TV itself.
FACT: TV speakers are there as a convenience. If they were comparable to hifi electronics and speakers we wouldn't by anything but a TV, right?
CORRELARY: TV is not itself an audio source. Everything it displays and projects soundwise comes from somewhere else at a higher 'fi' than it can reproduce.
So, get your BEST satellite or cable box digital audio out through either coaxial or optical cables to the Pioneer, if it has compatible inputs. This way you can decode multichannel audio broadcasts in electronics designedf for it.
There will also be a stereo pair of RCA jacks at the Sat/Cable boxes that you can run to the TV if it has multiple analog audio inputs. That way you can watch and hear CNN or the Weather on the TV without cranking up the Pioneer.
If you MUST have a TV audio feed to the Pioneer, use its RCA analog audio out to any available input. The TV may have internals controls for volume at those jacks. I recommend choosing a FIXED output level so you can turn the TV speakers down or off and still listen through the Pioneer. But it will be in vanilla stereo only.
USB stick has to be formated in FAT32 file system.
Some players will only play sticks up to 2 Gigs, some may recognize and play video files even from external hard drives.
Aveis is a no name player, so who knows if it'll play anything besides MP3 and JPG.
I'd go with a Pioneer or Coby (both at Best Buy); both play DivX format from sticks and external hard drives; no MPEG-4 or MKV files though, which is a bummer (did not find any player under $100 that does.)
I tried them both (also tried Philips and Toshiba), but the Pioneer had far the best picture and sound amongst all of them. Coby was OK, but the display broke.
On page 36 of the Pioneer users manual, it describes how to set your audio for HDMI interconnect. Follow the directions, and hopefully it will work. You can down load the manual from the Pioneer web site. Google "speaker system HTZ171 DVD". Click on the Pioneer site for your system and look for the download on the right side of page.
I hope this was helpful...
If your computer recognizes a disc in the drive and operates normally, Id assume you would need a DVD player or codec to be able to actually watch the DVD. PowerDVD rings a bell.
Have you tired that? I know Windows Media Player by default wont let you watch a movie without first downloading a codec.
What is happening is the the pioneer is set up so that you can choose how you listen to your DVDs. So first you must see how your DVD is connected via the audio. I am fairly sure that the Default on the Pioneer is to play it through the standard stereo if all you have plugged in is the left and right audio plugs. If you buy an optical cable or a plug in the Digital Coax out put to the pioneer receiver, then the pioneer will decode the sound and out put true surround sound. Some DVD players don't have a digital out put, but these are the cheapest ones out there. If yours doesn't have a digital out put, then you need to get one that does. They can be purchased for as little as 39.00.
Okay lets assume you bought a DVD player with Digital out put for audio and you have it connected to the receiver. Now, you have to change the mode on your pioneer to let it know that your audio is coming in DIgital when you select the DVD. (Though this may already be the case and you won't have to do anything once you connect it.)
I have a Pioneer DVDRW DVR-K16, in a sony dv81114Notebook. Running Windows XP. It cannot play dvd's and cd's, It will recognize blank CD-R's but when I insert a DVD-R it say's no disc installed. I have firmware version 1.15.
You need to check to see if the dvd drive is set to digital playback because it is probably trying to find your on board AC97 - 5.1 digital output. With a music CD it doesn't have to be connected digitially because it uses analog for stereo playback but most DVD's - if a movie - are set to playback in digital. Open 'My Computer', right click on your DVD drive, select properties, select hardware, highlight your DVD drive, click on properties, then properties again, check- Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device.
