The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:

You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:

After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Use the earphone jack in the iPod to connect to your Pioneer's RCA analog stereo input (CD or AUX for example) using a cable with the 3.5mm plug for the iPod and the two plug RCA on the Pioneer side. Plug white into white and red into red on the Pioneer. See image below. You can buy this cable at Radio Shack or online at Amazon.com for very little. Be sure to select the Pioneer input where you connected the iPod.

You need a cable that has "mini jack" (Ipod end) to RCA stereo (receiver end). Best Buy sells them

What isn't it doing - audio, video, both? What model is the TV. How are you trying to do it. Do you have the manual? The simplest hookup is to just have the a single RCA cable from "TO TV Monitor" to a Video In on the TV. Modifications may be required depending on what else you have for video sources and how they're attached.

Your problem is not with FixYa, but rather the volume control potentiometer on your Pioneer receiver. As for whether you can fix it yourself, that depends upon your ability to disassemble the receiver to gain access to the volume control and make the repair

Of course, the speakers are also a part of this. I imagine they have manuals, too.

Sub Woofer works but it won't when hooked up to the receiver


Yes, go to your menu then setup then speakers then subwoofer, it's probably in "LFE" it should give you the option of Sub, LFE, or Both. that should do the trick. Also check the crossover point and season to taste. While your at it; there should also be a setting for speaker level, toggle down to sub and adjust the sub out level, it's probably at it's minimum setting. Hope this helps

Pioneer VSX-D409 - Remote Control Problem Hello. I'm from Brazil and I have a 12 years old Pioneer VSX-D409 Receiver. My problem is related to the page 16 and 17 of the Owner's Manual. I'm trying to do the steps to Set up the surround mode, changing some settings and the type of connection I use to delivers sound to receiver, using optical cables. Well... I just cannot enter this mode, the surround setting mode. At this moment I'm hearing the sound from a FM station on the speakers. But just this function works. Tuner, wiht FM station. The remote control works only to: - Turn on or off the receiver. - Change the volume level. - Set the loudness function (on or off). - Change the function of the receiver (to select Tuner, DVD, TV or other device in, but I don't gain access to change some specs like distance, speakers volume levels or type of connection of each device). And nothing more. The remote control has seven buttons on the top: DVD/LD, TV/SAT, VCR/DVR, CD, TUNER, CD-R/TAPE/MD and TV CONT. According to the source device you want to use, you just press the button and the receiver selects the IN connection (coaxial or optical or just the Tuner to listen FM stations) and reproduces the audio. Until last week, anytime I press this button, the source device was selected. But, of course, I didn't use all of them. Just two: TV SAT and DVD. Why? This receiver has two optical IN units on its backside. I have two optical cables connected in the receiver. Optical 1 is connected to a PS3 and Optical 2 is connected to a SmarTV. Before my hollyday's trip, all the connections were allright. But not today!! The problem is: I do not have access to the process to change the type of connection that is assigned to the device I've choosen. I want to do this: TV/SAT --> OPT1 (to the audio from PS3); DVD --> OPT2 (to the audio from Smartv); The process is described at the page 16 to 21 of the owner's manual. But, it doesn't starts. Seems my remote control just forgeted how to do this or is blocked in another function. I don't know how to fix it and need some tip or help. Thank You! :)
