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

Hi Pual -
You can get a copy of the VSX-47TX manual here for free. Your remote has a built in microphone, so as long as you have that, you should be all set.
Page 10 begins the Set Up, it details connections for speakers, inputs, etc. and should be followed. Next, page 13 details the "Auto Surround Set Up". It is comprehensive and since it is free, there's no reason to paste it here when you can freely download it via the link I provided.
I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Tips for a great answer:
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.

• Turn down the volume.
• Lower the 40 Hz and 125 Hz equalizer levels in the Manual MCACC setup on page 34.
• Try switching on the digital safety feature (put the receiver into standby, hold down the SYSTEM SETUP button on the front panel and press STANDBY/ON to switch between SAFETY ON and SAFETY OFF
. If the power switches off even with SAFETY ON selected, turn down the volume.
