Pioneer vsx-d510 coaxial dvd connection problem

Hi, I have a Pioneer vsx-d510 Receiver and I can't make the setup for the connection with a Pioneer DVD recorder (DVR-540H). The settings seem to be very complicate. DO you happen to know how to do this settings?

Re: pioneer vsx-d510 coaxial dvd connection problem

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

How to hook it up with sub dvd

Not sure what a "sub dvd' is but here's the manual. The Subwoofer Pre Out would provide a Line Level feed for a powered subwoofer, once it is configured to do so.

I was using my vsx D510 with a hiteker dvd player

Each digital input is assigned a name and a function by you. You have to dig out the manual and assign the digital inputs.

My $.02. Why do you not want to use the coaxial imputs? There is no functional superiority of one over the other BUT coaxial is a) cheap, since it uses standard RCA cables; b) adaptable, since you can splice or split them among two devices; c) not delicate or prone to failure due to tight bends. I share one coaxial input between two digital device with an RCA splitter cable. Just have to make sure to turn the one I'm not using OFF. Try that with optical.

I have a motorolla DSR505 sattelite receiver that I want to connect to my Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K audio/video receiver. The sattelite receiver has a DVI output jack so I have a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it...

The DVI output usually transmits only video (I'm almost 90% sure about this). It would be better if you did not use the DVI to HDMI cable. Receivers and displays can be very picky when it comes to using HDMI. Your Motorola DSR505 has other output options on its rear. I would suggest using the Component out for video (the 3 outputs colored green, blue and red) and either an optical or coaxial for the audio. The Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K has the required inputs. Of course, you would require new component and coaxial/optical cables to do the job.
Hope this helps. If you're still in a tangle, you can consult the Official Thread on the Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K on avsforum. There are a lot of helpful people out there.

Pioneer receiver vsx-d510 sub not working

Rear Surrounds are not supported on this unit, they would be the 6th and 7th channels in a 7.1 rig. I think you mean Surrounds (channels 4 and 5 in a 5.1 rig).

Lets ponder: How is there any relationship between Surrounds and your separately-amplified Subwoofer? I don't see it, unless you inadvertently chose OFF for the Sub definition when you were in the Speaker selection menus adding the Surrounds. Look again.

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.)
