Question about Pioneer Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a VSX-920-K Pioneer receiver, a DV-220KV-K Pioneer DVD player, and a Sony CRT TV with no HDMI input but only a video component input. I connected the dvd player to the receiver using an HDMI cable (for audio) and a video component cable (for video) as shown in the receiver's manual. I connected the TV to the receiver using a video component cable. I have set the HDMI Control option of the receiver to "OFF" to enable the selection of the HDMI input in the Input Setup Menu of the receiver but no picture is being shown in the TV and only audio is the output of the receiver. If I turn the HDMI Control Option to "ON", there will be picture in the TV but no audio from the Pioneer receiver. Please help me on how I could make the picture be the output in the TV and audio in the receiver with the current setup. I have used RCA (white and red) cables for the audio in place of the HDMI cable just to temporarily solve the problem. However, I want to use my HDMI cable for clearer audio and my video component cable at the same time since my TV has no HDMI input. Thank you very much and your quick response will be highly appreciated.

SOURCE: HDTV Sharp- Input select to watch Cable tv

On the sharp remote you will find an input button. You depress the input button and a menu will appear and highlight the input you are presently on. Hit the input button again to select the next input. If you wait to long to depress the input button it will not work and you have to begin again. This unit will only hightlight inputs have a component hooked to that input.

SOURCE: how do I unlock region

Hi.

The player is normally multiregion.

If player is locked showing the following and a region code ending with 61, then the player encountered a problem. The firmware must be re-flashed. Firmware for this unit is not available. You can only put a specific region code, and that does not always work.You will need to contact Pioneer or to return the unit to the seller to get it restored.
Here what you get if you are in this situation:

(Player's Region Setting)
: Region
: Region
: Region
: Region
: Region
: Region
Pick out any one of these!

SOURCE: I have a new Denon

Not likely that all those things are faulty.

The TV and DVD player make and model would be helpful to know. I would recommend running its BEST digital audio to the receiver and its stereo analog audio to the TV just in case you want to watch and hear the DVD in a lo-fi setting without the Denon. I generally advocate for connecting anything high-end (audio or video) ONLY to equipment that can use it or enhance it. Otherwise you may just be wasting expensive cable and adding unnecessary hops and connections that can fail.

Why do you want the audio to go from the DVD to the TV through the Denon? Are there no speakers on the Denon? Modern TV's have lots of inputs for the flexibility I recommend but rarely have decent audio or speakers.

Please tell me how to hook up my Wii and my cd player and my dvd player to Pioneer VSX-D309 receiver


Greetings and good health to you.
Ok, so on the back of the unit there should be labeled connections, AUX, DVD, etc. These will be your inputs.
If your Wii has RCA connectors (the plug like ends that are usually Red, White & Yellow) then you would connect the Red plug to the AUX right speaker input. The White plug to the AUX left speaker input. If you want to run the video through the unit to the TV, then you would plug the Yellow plug to the AUX video input. If not, the yellow plug with go straight to the TV. If you are using HDMI from you Wii, then you would plug that into one of your HDMI inputs.

You will do the same for CD player but using the inputs labeled CD or whatever you have available. You can use any of these inputs for any of your devices it just helps to know what is connected where.

The DVD player may be a different story. Depending on what type of connection you are using from the DVD player will depend on where you plug it in. If they are red, white and yellow...then follow as above. If they are red & white on half the cable and blue, green and red on the other, you will plug the red & white ones that are close together into the red and white audio inputs under the DVD labeled connections. Then the other 3 will go into their matching colored inputs. If the connection from the DVD player is HDMI, that will go into a HDMI slot.

Finally, connect the unit to the TV. Keep in mind that if you are using any HDMI inputs, you will need to connect the unit to the TV via a HDMI cable.

Hope that helps.

No picture through Pioneer VSX 818V. Hi I have connected a blueray th the hdmi input and the tv to the hdmi, I have sound but no picture or on screen display?


Your receiver has 2 HDMI in with one HDMI out, 3 Component in and one out, and two difital optical in. If the bluray player has HDMI out this woukd be your best bet because HDMI carries the audio and video. If it has Component out, you would have to provde sound through the digital optical. Not knowing what blueray player or kind of tv you have, it's hard to advise so I may be over explaining. Anyway, we've touched on the bluray player to receiver. Out of your three HDMI slots on your receiver only one is HDMI out so make sure you're in the right one. Idaelly you have a DVD/blueray in on your receiver so on your receiver you would select "DVD" when playing. If your hook up is correct you may have to try another HDMI cable to test.

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?


your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

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.

HDMI Compatibility


It sounds to me like you have a HDMI Control issue. It sounds like the DVD player wants to control the receiver. Try turning off hdmi control on the TV, reciever, and the dvd player in their setup menus.


Let me know if this helped,

Video issues w/ Pioneer VSX-816 AV Receiver


Receivers generally cannot or will not convert from one input type to a different output. That's not to say there may not be some high end models around that do that.

I have this receiver and have it setup as follows. Monitor out Component, S-Video, and the Composite video channel (since I have surround sound I have no interest in getting audio to the TV since I keep its speakers off anyways) to their different inputs on the TV. Warning on some TV's if you plug in S-Video you cannot then use composite on that same input channel as it will override and disable the composite. Then you only need to choose the appropriate input on the TV when you switch sources. In my case Tivo is S-Video, DVD is component, and most of my older video games and VCR are composite.

Having a TV that allows you to change the labels for the input channels is helpful with teaching others that may be less adept, or a snazzy remote that you can program to do everything at once.
