Today I changed the hdmi out cable to a new one on the pioneer 919. Now I see receiver - volume osd on the tv when changing the volume.

Never seen that before on this receiver.

Klipsch floor fronts, rears, center, bass and Harmony One remote still in factory sealed boxes/packaging. I bought these end of 09 but they have been in storage ever since... Long story

I am going to be setting up the speakers soon, looking for input as to whether you would use the VSX-1019 or sell it and seek a newer AVR. I would like to be able to use the 1019 if possible
No reason not to use the 1019. I used it for quite a while as my main AVR, it did fine work driving an Energy RC setup. It is now serving as a music mostly receiver in my bedroom, with my old Oppo BDP-83 as the music source. The 1019 is reliable, has more than enough power and works well with the Oppo, a Vizio display and is just chugging along and sounds great.

I think I can get around this problem by utilizing a SACD decoder when streaming sacd music files on the hard drive. At the present I've been researching BDP's .... I'm thinking the Pio BDP 62-FD might be an suitable option supporting the sacd and dvd-a formats.

Any recommendations on a reasonably priced BDP to compliment the VSX-1019 that supports sacd and dvd-a ?
Or any other suggestions?

Cheers
If the 62FD is selling at the same price range as the Oppo 103D, I'd go with the Oppo.

Hdmi issues?

I was wondering if this was either a common issue or easily repaired? I found this on CL and figured I would try and haggle it down if it was an easy fix or user error.

Thanks for your response. Yeah, I got my eye on the Oppo also, great recommendation as I understand the industry rates bdp performance against the Oppo from all my research. Nice setup in the b/r with the 1019 / Oppo...
At the moment anything that will play my sacd's would work until I can drop some $ on a known reliable unit. It appears I can purchase a software license for a sacd player online that will allow me to play the sacds I have on my hard drive w/o changing format prior to streaming. I shall see soon enough..

I did go ahead and install the 1019 avr combined with Klipsch speakers and a Samsung 55" led tv... All I can say is , WOW... I know many people do not care for the Klipsch and claim the lows suck... I'm gonna have to call em on it, of course I'm no audiophile... However, I'm loving the sound of the combo. I could not believe the batteries were still operational that came with the remote.

It took me a few to get used to the unit and navigate the manual. As for the ipod, the connector would not fit my iPhone but fortunately I had an older iPhone 4 with cracked screen that I can now use as a dedicated ipod player. I was surprised at how well the unit and speakers sounded from the iPhone playing AAC files. Regardless, if I was standing 3 feet in front of the system or on the other side of the house, the music was clear and crisp. Yeah, I;m happy so far withe 1019

I did note the 1019 does get quite warm in the cabinet. I need to purchase a small fan to accommodate the unit. I've ordered online, a optical cable/Toslink and a displayport cable/hdmi so I can stream movies and music from my iMac thru the 1019. Nobody local had a clue as to what the cables were that I was requesting

Makes me wonder how much heat the Pioneer BDP's put out? I'm sure not any where near the amount the AVR does. Any heat issues with the Oppo? Also, since this the AVR had been in storage since it was purchased in 12/08, I'm sure the firmware is outdated. Any need to install updated firmware? Normally, I don't update firmware unless I'm having an issue with a component.
I know this post is unusual, me just now installing a 1019 when many have already upgraded and moved on...
