Can't get out of Multi-Zone Mode on the remote
I think my kids pressed a button by mistake and now the remote is incapable of doing anything other than adjusting Zone 2 (I don't have a Zone 2). I consulted the manual and I can press the Multi-Zone button on the front of the receiver and turn off Zone 2 and adjust the volume, inputs etc from the front panel but the moment I try to use the remote it's back to Zone 2/Multi-Zone operation.
I can't find how to toggle this off. Any help would be much appreciated.
I believe I've encountered this before but can't find the solution this time.
I believe the solution is the Receiver button although I was pushing the Source, Multi-Zone and Power buttons when the problem resolved itself. I can use my remote again!
Receiver - Switches the remote to control the receiver (used to select the white commands).Switch to perform operations in the main zone. Also use this button to set up surround sound.
I have 4 other airplay devices on my network and they all work flawless. I called pioneer and they advised I have to send it in. The funny thing is I live about 15 mins from the pioneer head office but they don't accept drop offs... I have to take the receiver to a depot about 45 mins from me and they in turn will send it to pioneer. Common Sense aint too common.
Anybody having similar issues?
My VSX-1021-k cannot reach the home network / internet anymore. I went into the settings and it gets to "Applying network settings" and will go no further.
I have reset the unit per the manual instructions and I know it resets as my demo mode returns. Unfortunately network settings still show the same message.
Has anybody experienced this and know how to resolve it please?
A few quick question, hopefully quick, regarding video processing.
1. Using a htpc, better to have video processing turned on, or off?
2. Gaming, video processing on or off?
3. Cable box, processing on, or off?
4. What exactly is video processing do when it's on vs off? lol Seems like a silly question, but what I mean what are the benefits to having processing on over off?
Thanks guys, hopefully someone's still around to help me get some answers.
Basically, if you're sending an HD signal from the source, keep the Pioneer's video processing turned off. (It's not very good anyway.)
If you're sending an SD signal from a source that doesn't itself upscale and process it, then it might benefit from the Pioneer's processing. But these days, even your TV probably has good enough upscaling built right in.

Amazingly coincidental that others are having the same problem in such a time bound window?
Is the amp section gone on the receiver? I tried different inputs (cable box, game systems, BD, Airplay, etc.) and all the same problem.
I can hear the amp switching inside as I cycle through the modes, and when the iPad is plugged into the front the song playing displays on the screen. the iPhone app appears to be working as normal, Airplay finds the receiver... just no sound from anywhere. I have done a reset.
I went as far as opening up the amp and looking for signs (and smells) of burn out (none) and tested the two fuses. I cut a new piece of speaker wire and tested with a local speaker. Nothing. Nada. Zip.
I hope I have missed something dumb, easy or hard, and that it's not repair depot time.. any clues?
Thanks for your help.
Tried the various recommendations but it didn't help.
Contemplating between getting it repair VS. just getting a new one (non-pioneer).
Glad I checked this forum, my receiver has been having airplay issues for the past 3 months. I still see it as an airplay device and can select it, it will start up playing but stop 10 sec in to the song... No idea what could be wrong.. All my other airplay devices work fine
Everything works fine with the receiver outside of this zone 2 issue.
Sub is hooked up via digital coaxial cable if that matters.
The truth is, Pioneer should be fixing these for free. Apparently they're not interested in long-term customer relationships.

How can I save the setting so it is always the same for Action movie.
The disadvantage of this is that relay contacts get dirty. Bumping the receiver can make a poor contact good because it ever so slightly jostles the contact on the relay. The cure is to remove the covers on the relays and clean the contacts, or replace the relay.
I finally got rid of it today for the following reasons.
1) the new AVControl app is the worse user interface I have ever used. It's worse than windows 3.1 and shows what happens when you let some designer go pseudomorphic design overboard. Everything is random, makes no sense, shifts locations, overly animated etc. Just a really horrible horrible design. The older version worked much better and easier and I stuck to it but on iOS8 much of it crashes.
2) I had MAJOR HDMI Control handshake issues with my new XBR Sony TV. It would control some things and not others. The ARC would also randomly work or not. I spent about 5 hours fiddling with everything I could before finally giving up.
3) The built in GUI for the receiver is horrible. Looks like its from the early 90's and the options are highly confusing.
4) Airplay didn't work for MONTHS until Pioneer finally upgraded the firmware.
Anyway, got a Sony Receiver instead and it has non of the above issues.
God speed everyone.
Receiver: Pioneer VSX-1021-K
Mainly, is there a distance the line level pre-outs for zone 2 should not exceed? Since I need to run the wire, what should I run? It's about a 35 linear feet run to the sub location, as the wire runs. Sub is powered BTW.
Next, will the zone 2 pre-out volume adjust with the speakers or is it fixed? This may foil my plans some if it's fixed.
I just found out I can AirPlay to both zones after years of not knowing it. Who knew. I still love this 1021.
Thanks in advance.
