Hi zedstaid, check that "Speakers" are set to "A" and not "A & B".

3D blu ray work around for VSX 23TXH? My thread searching skills suck, sorry if this has been answered. Tried to watch 3D movie for 1st time last night using PS4 and Panasonic AE8000. Opening Disney scene starts up loud and proud, then screen goes blue with no activity. Is only solution to directly connect PS4 to projector, or does the 23TXH have a pass thru function that will work for 3D? Thanks

Not very knowledgable about 3D but I think you need an hdmi version 1.4 avr for 3D, although, I think I remember reading where the occasional older receiver will pass it through anyway. But I could be totally wrong. The 23 of course is 1.3. That's why people with 1.3 receivers buy BR players with dual HDMI outputs. One for the receiver (and TrueHD/MA) and the other for the display.

The 23THX does not pass through 3D nor does it support ARC (audio return channel).

4 ohm stable?

I can not find any ohm settings in the 21txh/23txh menu or anything definitive in the manual concerning 4 ohm speaker usage. Can these models support 4 ohm speakers? I was hoping to power some Martin Logan's temporarily until the Atmos/DTS: X models came out. Thanks in advance for any info or user experience on this matter.

No it does not support 4 ohm. From manual "
Guaranteed speaker impedance . . . . . . . . . . . . . 16 Ω to 8 Ω,
less than 8 Ω to 6 Ω (setting required
Means the lowest it will support is 6 ohms.


From Manual : here is how to chance impedance
press STANDBY/ON.
The display shows RESET NO .
Use TUNE +/– (or / on the remote control) to select
SPEAKER 8Ω , and then use PRESET +/– (or /
on the remote control) to select SPEAKER 8Ω or
SPEAKER 6Ω.
SPEAKER 8Ω – Use this setting if your speakers are
rated at 8 Ω or more.
SPEAKER 6Ω – Use this setting if your speakers are

rated at 6 Ω.
