Question about Pioneer VSX-2016 7.1 Channels Receiver
In spite of the fact that the MCACC test recognises my 4 speakers, I'm not getting any sound from the surround speakers when playing a disc. Even the front speakers only work if I switch off multi-channel and play in stereo. I guess I'm overlooking a certain setting somewhere...
Review the speaker set up instructions to determine whether the correct sizes have been selected. In some speaker configurations, signals are mixed or redirected to compensate for size limitations and other factors.

try turning the unit off in standby mode then hold down the enter button and then the power button for about 10m seconds that should reset the unit depending on how new the unit is it sometimes has a digital saftey setting but i doubt that would cause it to do what you are saying

Make sure that the sound field/programme you have selected is dolby digital not stereo.(On the amp)
You also need to check on the display that is says DIGITAL not ANOLOUGE, as only a digital input, Optical fibre cable, HDMI, COAX will be a digital signal.
If you are using red and white rca connectors, it is not going to work, as this is an Anolouge signal.

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX 818V No Sound
First thing to check is the Speaker Select Switch. It will say, "A" "AB" or "Both" it will be displayed on the LCD screen as well. Second if that's ok, Check the "Direct" switch. If it's on, turn it off. Generally if it's on, you will see a blue light if it's on (most receiver's)
If you still have No audio, hook up your DVD to the "Direct" input and turn "Direct" on. If you have audio then. The DSP chip is probably bad and you should take it to a shop and have them bench it first to confirm. Hope this helps

Its because the pioneer does not display menu options through hdmi. You have to hook up basic yellow composite to monitor out.

Automatically setting up for surround
sound (Auto MCACC)
The Auto MCACC Setup measures the acoustic characteristics of your listening area, taking into account
ambient noise, speaker size and distance, and tests for both channel delay and channel level. After you have set
up the microphone provided with your system, the receiver uses the information from a series of test tones
to optimize the speaker settings and equalization for your particular room.
Make sure you do this before moving on to Playing a source on page 11.
• Make sure the microphone and speakers are not moved during the Auto MCACC Setup.
• Using the Auto MCACC Setup will overwrite any existing settings for the MCACC preset you select.
• Before using the Auto MCACC Setup, the headphones should be disconnected and the iPod
USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio function should not be selected as an input source.
1 Switch on the receiver and your TV.
2 Connect the microphone to the MCACC SETUP MIC
jack on the front panel.
Place the microphone so that it's about ear level at your normal listening position (use a tripod if possible). Make
sure there are no obstacles between the speakers and the microphone.
The Auto MCACC display appears once the microphone is connected.1
1 • You can't use the System Setup menu in either the main or sub zone when the iPod USB, XM or SIRIUS Radio input source is selected. When you set ZONE 2 to ON (page 61), you can't use the System Setup menu.
• If you cancel the Auto MCACC Setup, or leave an error message
It's all in the manual.
