Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a pioner VSX-917V. I hooked up my 2 front speakers, center speaker, 2 back speakers and a sub.
When I do the auto-mcacc. The test tones come out of all the speakers, but then it takes me to an error screen and says there is an error with the SB speakers
I had the same problem but fixed it (no thanks to what I believe is an oversight by Pioneer!). The amp is a 7.1 system. What we are assuming is the rear surround (SB) is the default using a 5.1 setup. The amp uses the SR & SL as the default. So the solution is plug your rear speakers into the SR & SL & you should have your surround! (only took me 6 hours to figure this out, hope it saves you time!)

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.
