Question about Pioneer Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

My VSX 517 amp's sound is outputted before the vision on the TV. The sound seems to be anything up to half a second ahead, it is not always out it depends on how long someone is speaking for, plus which sky channel I am watching seems to make a difference too. One thing that is really confusing is if someone is talking in shot and sound goes out if camera pans away then back whilst they are talking it is then back in sync until a few seconds has passed then it is out again

Lip Sync issues are the nature of the beast. The TV has to process the digital video bitstream a lot more than the receiver has to process the audio so the result can be a gradual lagging of the video behind the sound...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lip_sync

Some receivers have a sound delay control which you can use to try to sync them up. You didn't name yours so one does not know. I don't think this unit has that function. Look in the manual.

    Thanks for the info Dunnbiker very helpful. I do not think my amp does have the delay timer but will look. I agree in the fact that video takes longer to process, something worryng me is that the processor int he new TV I have bought is slow, as I have also had comments from people that the video moves oddly plus delay when playing X Box games, for example COD. Looking at wikipedia I would of thought that the interlacing of video and sound would be done by the receiver as both go through it.

check the audio output settings of your components. THey may be set for dolby digital which your receiver can process but your TV can not. Try PCM stereo setting or "other".

That would depend on where the (unidentified) TV audio comes FROM. If it's the analog output of the TV, the TV has a volume control hidden somwhere in a menu. Or you could select the FIXED output so its volume control has no effect on external use of the audio.

If the TV audio comes from a Cable Box analog output, IT might also have a control that varies the volume out. Disable it.

Hello, Problem is that after a few seconds the display shows "overload. " integrated circuits seem to be good, and I say this because I measured the voltage on each output amplifiers, and I have...


ALL the IC's are ok?

You'd measure 0 vdc if it was turned off, too, so that doesn't prove much.

Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads. Check for loose speaker connections.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

My jamo sub 200 & pioneer vsx517 receiver is not working properly


What do you mean that it sometimes doesn't work? It doesn't power on automatically?
Check settings of your receiver - if it has subwoofer output enables and if low frequencies from all channels are directed also to the SUB. By default only the LFE channel (.1) of 5.1 signal input is fed to the subwoofer. So Sub will work in this case only when you listen to 5.1 signal (DVD movie for example), but for radio or stereo music, only front speakers are used. By configuring this bass redirect, you can use subwoofer for all signal types.

Vsx-517 keeps going into overload mode!


Try this:
1. Turn off the receiver.
2. Disconnect all the speakers from the back of the receiver.
3. Turn on the receiver. Does it still go into overload? If so, it may need repair.
4. If not, turn the receiver back off and connect one speaker at a time and turn it back on.

Most likely one of your speaker cables is shorted out causing your receiver to get overloaded. Or, one of the speakers is damaged, having the same effect.

I have a Pioneer VSX-D912. I just switched to HD Sat. When I hook into the component ports, I get no picture. When I use the DVD port I do get a picture.


I have exaclty the same problem. DVD into comp in 1, and my Homecast HT8000 into comp in 2 on my D912.

The dvd gets a picture.

The TV does not.

Looking at the settings I have "Component video Input" set correctly.

I'll add that when I do switch from DVD to TV, I get a scrabled vision of what is on TV for about half a second befoe the TV itself says "No, I can't display that" and gives me the blue screen of 'no signal'
