Question about Pioneer VSX-917V-K Receiver
There is no dedicated DVD/LD "HDMI" port on your receiver. I would guess this is your problem.
The (DVD/LD) IN 1 port is for component A/V cables. There are 3 HDMI sockets (2 IN, 1 OUT) directly above the DVD/LD port. Therefore, you are not going to get any response from the receiver if you set the input source to DVD/LD when you are using an HDMI cable.
I need to make sure we are working on the same definitions here before we go any further. Are you using a component type cable (3 video + 2 Audio plugs on each end) or an actual HDMI cable, like this:
There seems to be a lot of confusion over HDMI cables. A component cable will carry an HD signal, but it is not an HDMI cable. HDMI refers exclusively to the cable type in the image above.
I can definitely help you to get this working, but I need to make sure we are on the same page before doing so. Some Pioneer receivers have the HDMI ports disabled at the factory and they need to be re-enabled by the user.
If you can let me know which cable type you are actually using, we should be able to sort this fairly quickly.

I had basically the same problem with my JVC receiver. It would not work on the DVD HDMI input but worked on the auxiliary HDMI input with my PS3. You might want to try that and see if it works for you.
