Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Hi, I have a HTPC connected to my Pioneer VSX-520 via HDMI cable. I also have a Pioneer HDD recorder connected to VSX-520 with another HDMI cable. VSX-520 is then connected to Panasonic Full HD flat screen TV. Everything was working fine up until about a week ago. When watching a movie, either with HDD recorder or with HTPC, after a while I get a black screen, like the VSX-520 is switched off. Today I had HTPC playing music through VSX-520 and I lost video, but audio continued. I unplugged the HDMI cable from VSX-520 and plugged directly into TV and video was all good. Any suggestions ?

SOURCE: No sound from digital cable thru AVR3200 after adding HDTV - DVD plays fine

you need a digital coax cable and then connect it to 6.1 also the digital cable type is not a coomon type so check that also

SOURCE: Pioneer receiver VSX-D411

Yes techtod you are right you do have to tell the receiver what you want it to do usually on the front panel you can access set up menu and go into input set up This is an example Say you plugged the dvd into optical one or coax 1 you must go to the input that says dvd click down till you highlight dig input and then select optical 1 or coax 1 there can be as many as 8 digital inputs so just check wich one you plugged it into and then tell the amp then you should be back to watching your digital movies

SOURCE: Onkyo TX-SR606 getting no sound from HDMI sources

Not sure if this is your fix, but I had what I thought was the same problem. I played with my Onkyo quite a bit ensuring the correct assignments for HDMI, audio and all that stuff. Turns out I neglected to make sure the output devices were properly assigned. Many devices aren't default to output sound over HDMI. I changed the audio out settings on the cable box to HDMI and suddenly the Onkyo worked great. I know, I'm an idiot for not checking that in the first place, but maybe someone out there is having the same trouble as well.

NO AUDIO


If it is the radio you are trying to get make sure you have an antenna that is strong enough and can receive the signal. With a digital tuner it requires a strong enough signal to capture any channels.

I can not complete my connection HDMI between my TV and my receiver. pioneer VSX 522k. there is no sound, i tried connecting the TV to the receiver no luck, i tried both the TV and Cable to the receiver...


I despise this receiver. It has a mind of it's own and I cannot get it to work. I have had fits for 2 years with the Optical output and TV sound only working every now and then. I am not a sound guy but have competently set up dozens of home systems and worked in bar/restaurant industry dealing with sound systems. This thing is a piece of over or under engineered POS

I have a pioneer vsx-30 with hdcp error on the face i see it when a scientific atlantic cable box is connected through a componet connection


Component cables don't have the ability to carry decrypted HD info.

HDCP is "High Definition Copy Protection"...In theory, it prevents you from running the HDMI cable out of your receiver, and into a recording device, thereby recording HD content without a license for it.

HDCP handshaking is done between devices that run HDMI, or DVI.

If you're running component from your Cable box, and then HDMI out to your TV, then the content you're carrying from the Cable box may not be getting decrypted properly when it gets upscaled onto the HDMI port from Component.

IT could also simply be that you're using an HDMI 1.1 or HDMI 1.2 cable, which may not be able to carry the high bandwidth stream of your Receiver and TV.

Please be sure that all HDMI devices can support the same HDMI version, and also be sure your HDMI cable is labled "HDMI 1.x compliant". . .e.g. if your TV and Amp support HDMI 1.2, make sure you're also using an HDMI 1.2 Cable.

Pioneer works with cable box but not with new blue


HDMI version is 1.3 in your receiver.The current version is 1.3b. I would suggest calling Pioneer cust assistance and see if there is a firmware update. Your unit has a 2 year parts & labor warranty. Their # is 1-800-421-1404 It sounds like a CODEC issue. Hope this helps

Can the Pioneer VSX-74TXVi support 1080p video resolution thru HDMI? I have PS3 and I cannot get 1080p thru my TV unless I go to the TV directly and bypass the receiver.


No. Your receivers HDMI version is 1.1 It was the first, and as always, riddled with compatability issues. Nothing you have should be run thru this receiver via HDMI, use your receiver for digital audio switching via optical or coaxial digital. If you really want all the HDMI info and problems; google hdmi forums. There are hundreds that specifically deal with this issue and all the specifics you could ever ask for. Long of the short of it though, Version 1.1 will not work and can not be updated by firmware. Also, it's not Pioneer's nor any other MFG's receiver's problem it's 80% recording industry trying to protect copyright on video, and 20% poor design by HDMI and not forward thinking. Hope this eases the frustration!

Recently purchased this reciever, and in reading the manual, I cannot tell if it will work if I hook my Comcast HDMI to one of the HDMI inputs (Input 2)? In general, i will be only hooking up the Cable box...


It should work fine. The Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K has been made so that it can accept 4 HDMI inputs (of which 3 are assignable, and 1 is for the BD player)
If you still have a problem, you can resort to the Official Thread on the Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K on avsforum. A lot of helpful guys out there, and a very active thread.

I have a motorolla DSR505 sattelite receiver that I want to connect to my Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K audio/video receiver. The sattelite receiver has a DVI output jack so I have a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it...


The DVI output usually transmits only video (I'm almost 90% sure about this). It would be better if you did not use the DVI to HDMI cable. Receivers and displays can be very picky when it comes to using HDMI. Your Motorola DSR505 has other output options on its rear. I would suggest using the Component out for video (the 3 outputs colored green, blue and red) and either an optical or coaxial for the audio. The Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K has the required inputs. Of course, you would require new component and coaxial/optical cables to do the job.
Hope this helps. If you're still in a tangle, you can consult the Official Thread on the Pioneer VSX 1019 AH-K on avsforum. There are a lot of helpful people out there.

Component to HDMI


why dont u connect the xbox directly to the tv via HDMI cable? the output will be fantastic.The component cables just cannot give a better resolution than HDMI.
As for connections,i am not in favour of component and HDMI together.

Pioneer vsx-d510 coaxial dvd connection problem


Hello,
I recommend you use an optical connection. Your VSX-D510 has only one optical input, but I believe it is assignable. Use a good optical cable and connect directly to your DVR. Follow the manual to assign the input and it should work.
Good luck
