    a 'bit' means very low volume, probably 10% - any time i try to raise the volume above that, I get the Overload message. I have the Panasonic DVD player in the DVD inputs, and have tried my iPod in all the other inputs with the same result. in addition to this volume problem, when playing a movie, I have very low volume, but it also shuts down the volume from the TV completely

    thanks for your help - I'm at my wits end here

Ok, how much is "a bit"? If you are operating your unit at the 50% or more level, your unit is working as it should, as DVD and CD players output more signal than other sources...accordianman

Pioneer VSX-D307 has no sound from right front speaker.

Did you connect a known good speaker to the amplifier's right front output connections? Make sure you also have known good wires for the front right as well. Make sure balance control is set to the middle and not just to the left.

I can't find your TV model to have a look at the manual. Normally you'd use a 3-plug RCA cable (Red, White, Yellow) to connect the audio and video outputs of the DVR to an RCA input on the TV. Then, hoping you have RCA OUTPUTS from the TV, you'd use a 2-plug RCA cable to take an Audio OUT from the TV into one of the receiver's Audio inputs (assuming you want to play TV sound through the receiver.
If you have no RCA inputs on the TV, you can get an RCA to HDMI Converter from Amazon for $10-$15 to convert the output of the DVD player from 3-plug RCA to HDMI, then put that into one of the HDMI inputs on the TV. Likewise, if you have only an OPTICAL audio output from the TV you can get a converter for that -- Optical audio to RCA stereo -- and put that into your receiver as an input.

Why does it display the word overload


Please allow us to help you.

The word overload meaning to many speakers connected to the unit witch is consuming more RMS then the amp is putting out.

1. Unhook all speakers
2. Then unplug unit
3. connect ONLY the speakers that came with unit or speakers that is rated for the unit.

If the issue persist then the amp might need to be repaired.

We hope you find this information useful.
