Hi, I have a Pioneer VSX-1015... Want to know how to set it up properly details below...
Hi... The amp is ALOT more complicated than I have previously used (old technics & Kenwood etc.) I don't actually have a Surround sound set up but I do have an active Denon sub, 2 Wharfedale Diamond 12.2's for front speakers & 2 Wharfedale Diamond 9.0's for rear behind my sofa & just run all 4 from the 'front' speaker terminals & just use the settings that it was already running on when I bought it as it's all too complicated for me who's used to just plug n play oldskool amps lol... But a mate of mine said it's a decent amp if I used it's full potential... I just don't even know where to start... The MCCAC auto set requires a mic which I don't have & the menu itself is even confusing & no vids on YT about how to set em up... Any help much appreciated... But I've put it back on eBay for some money to buy a decent oldskool amp again ha

The Pioneer AXD7381 remote came with several Pioneer receivers, including the VSX-1015-THX. The manual for the receiver has the instructions for the remote. To program the remote to use it as a universal remote, press and hold the Receiver button. While holding the receiver button, press and hold the 1 key. The remote screen should show Setup. Press the multi-control button (below the LCD screen) appropriate for the device that you wish to have the AXD7381 control. Use the Left/Right arrow keys on the remote to select Preset and press Enter. Use the Up/Down arrows to select the first letter of the device manufacturer's name. Press Enter. Use the Up/Down arrows to select the full name of the manufacture and press Enter. Use the Up/Down arrows to select a code number. Test if the code works with the device; check if the device powers on with the Source On/Off button at the top right of the remote. If it does, press Enter. Otherwise, try a different code and repeat the test. Note: most remotes will only work as an universal remote for devices that were manufactured more than 6 months before the remote was programmed. Since the VSX-1015-THX manual has a copyright date of 2004, it may not control devices that were built in late 2004 or more recently. You could also try programming the remote with a working remote for the device. See the manual for the details.
You have a short in your unit somewhere which is triggering the fault circuit. It could be almost anywhere but more than likely it is an output driver transistor. If they all check OK I would troubleshoot the power supply. Do you get any fault indications on the display? Let me know and I'll see if I can narrow down the search.
That sounds like a much better overload protection method than having it just shut down!
Check to see that you have the proper Ohm rating for your speakers that are compatible with your receiver.
You can also, if you have a powered sub, set the electronic crossover to a higher point than it is now running to the sub and use that in conjunction with your other speakers. Make sure however to set your other speakers to "small." That will take some of the strain off your amp.
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.
