Question about Pioneer VSX-D411 Receiver

1 Answer

The SIGNAL: ANALOG won't disappear even though I've gone through the menu and selected my input OPT: CD/DVD/TV whatever it may be. How do I get my optical input recognized by the receiver? Is it broken?

It will change automatically once it detects a suitable digital signal.

So yes it could actually be faulty but more likely you aren't sending a suitable format digital signal from the source. check the digital audio output settings on whatever device you are using
old dvd players will output PCM 2 channel digital or bitstream multichannel (dolby dig or DTS) which your unit can handle whilst new blurays will have some very hi bit rates -eg192khz 24bit. You may need to lower the output in the menus to get the Pioneer to accept them.

It is always possible the optic has got kinked or fractured, which causes light scattering/corruption and will cause the same symptom

Use your remote to get into the Menu. Look for something called audio, or audio properties. In there you can choose your inputs (sources) and output choices.

On the remote itself, there should be a button called input, or source. That would be for things input to the TV.....such as dvd, vcr.

Digiatal input indicator keep flasing


The flashing digital input for DVD means its digtial input is either not connected or not transmiiting. If yoy still hear the DVD it is probably because you also have the analog cables attached. Is that right?

If you had both attached the receiver would opt for digital over analog but would default to analog if the digital signal was not there.

If you can connect the DVD's digital cable you will get actual 5.1 surround sound from DVD.

Picture from analog tv signal is not sharp


I have this same machine, you did'nt mention what input you are using (composite, S-Video, component or HDMI) or what type of display you have (CRT, LCD, Plasma etc.).
If your T.V. has a HDMI input I recommend using that, if not and it's of fairly recent vintage use the component inputs (not to be confused with composite video inputs, or yellow RCA-type input).or at the very least use the S-Video input.
In the setup menu (on screen) try setting the "TV Screen" option to the 480p setting and if you are using the HDMI input try setting that to the highest resolution your T.V. has or set it to "Auto"
Finally in the on screen video menu select the "Video" setting and set the "Still Mode" option to automatic, and the "Output Level" to lighter or darker whatever your preference is.
Remember...Always use HDMI or component video inputs on your television (if it has those inputs)!
Hope this helps!

Get closed captions on some channels, but not all, even though it is CC


RCA have choices for different methods of CC in user CC menu. Labelled T1, T2, etc. . Different selections are for different types of close caption. Tune to a signal (on your other TV) that has closed caption working.

Tune your RCA to the same signal. Change the T1,T2, etc settings until the closed caption for your signal appears.

If this doesn't work, try connecting analog video or VHF channel 3 (or other specified channel) to the TV. check CC. When TV stations, sat channels, sat receivers, cable boxes etc, convert analog video signals to HD, problems can result. Some equipment causes RCA TVs to do unexpected things with sound and closed caption.

If you use RF or video output, old analog video may look better on CH3 or video than on HD input and the CC will work more consistently. Watch HD signals on HD input, Analog signals on Video in or through the TV tuner . Many HD channels and programs are converted analog video and look poor on TV HD inputs.

No sound using digital coaxial connections


Couple of possibilities:
Press Audio Select on front of unit until "Analog" changes to "coax/opt"

or

When you select the component connected to the MULTI CH INPUT jacks as the input source (see page 38), this unit automatically
turns off the digital sound field processor, and you cannot select sound field programs.

Onkyo TX-DS939 optical selection problem help!


That coaxial, opt-1 and opt-2 are available only if they are not selected to some other channel. So you have to check if opt-2 is selected to Video-1,2,3,4,5,6,7,CD or DAT. Change that to Analog and then opt-2 is free to another device.
