Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders
Assuming a single cause we need to isolate which single device is involved in all these failure modes.
"It comes out of both speakers" on what - the TV?
You don't say how the DVD interefaces with the receiver. Is the DVD feeding digital multichannel audio out at that time? Many DVD's are simple stereo until the show actually begins. You know that.
Try running an HDMI connection straight to the TV from the cable box. Result?
Substitute the other HDMI cable for the first one. Result?
If either one does NOT work satisfactorily we may have part of the problem isolated.
If they both work, the TV and cables are ok.
Attach the HDMI out of the receiver and IN to the TV and the HDMI from the Cable Box as before. Same result?
Can you try using Component Video out of the receiver to the TV just to change something in the equation? On my rig I 'see' no difference between HDMI and Component Video on my HDTV. A change in the result may help to isolate or work around part of your problem.
I'd recommend you go for minimal receiver involvement in the video side other than to send composite video to the TV from "Monitor Out" so you can set up and manage the receiver.
You can also send Cable- or Sat Box basic analog audio directly to the TV if it has inputs for audio. That way if you just want to watch the news or weather you don't need to fire up the Pioneer.
Your video sources (DVD, BD, Cable/Sat) will suffer fewer video anomalies if you send their best video directly to the TV and their best audio directly to the receiver. That way everything is handled only once by the best electronics you have for each function.
