LG 60PK550 plasma
Sony BDP 370 player
Swan Home theater speaker set(front, center, surround)
Martin Logan Dynamo Sub
Pioneer vsx 1020K receiver
The whole HT is set up and calibrated for sound using the Pioneer setup microphone.
The sub is connected via single RCA between Pio Sub Out and ML '0.1 LFE in' input.
The Dynamo manual describes this as the correct way to set up a multi-channel system.
When watching video with DD 5.1 or higher digital sound, the sub works great.
When listening to music (CD, Ipod), the sub does not get any signal. I want the sub to get signal at all times, regardless of the source.
In other words: when the receiver's display shows any other signal than 'digital', the sub gets no signal.
What am I missing? To my nowledge, the pioneer does not have an extra set of pre out plugs that I might be able to plug into the ML sub's 'right in' and 'left in' inputs.
Should I try using some of the other RCA outputs, like CDR/Tape out or DVR out?
Any advice / suggestion would be most welcome.
