Hey, I am looking into getting a new Pioneer receiver, either the VSX-01 or 03. I briefly looked at the online manuals and searched through the forums (how I found this thread) and have been unable to find any info about Pioneers serial control support. The function the manual lists for the serial port is to read info from the MCACC process.
Is it possible to use the serial port on these receiver's as a control port in a home theatre setup. If so, does anyone have any experience with its documentation and robustness.
If these receivers do not support serial control, can anyone recommend a receiver in the 01/03 ballpark that includes a well documented serial control protocol.
