PC Stream to Amp - No Itunes

Hi guys,

have been trying everything to work out how to stream from my windows PC to my 1021vsx without using my itunes airplay. I am connect wirelessly and Ethernet cable to my amp and it shows in my network folders. However i want to be able to play online music / personal music with using itunes.
I find it easier to find internet radio stations on my PC than i do the tuner, as well as i dont want to always relay on my iphone to play music to the amp (which we always do) as sometimes it drops out.
we are having a party tonight and i want to make sure the music is seamless without drop out etc, this can be acheived by PC directly to amp.

any help greatly appreciated.

Cheers
JB

sorry guys typing to quickly. Do not want to use Itunes. I can stream over my PC to amp using Itunes airplay, however cannot stream things like pandora from PC to amp without using iphone.

hope this makes sense.

Thanks

You cannot stream something from a web browser to the receiver.



Edit. This actually worked in win 8.1 using the IE modern app.

Hi,
My VSX1021-K has been working well for years. Recently it has been stalling out at 1-2 minutes when playing internet radio. I've ordered a new network cable to eliminate that possibility but I'm pretty sure that's not the problem. It plays a station fine for a minute or two and then stops. The buffer indicator on screen goes from 100 to 30 and the it hangs. I can reload the station and the same thing happens. I use it on Zone 2 RCA out to an FM transmitter for radio (which I can change stations from anywhere with my phone) throughout the house. I kind of miss having it. Anyone else encountered this?
Thanks!

I am noticing that the subwoofer icon isn't displayed on the receiver's screen. I've also switched listening modes, and no matter which listening mode I switch to, nothing. So what the heck is wrong???

Receiver: Pioneer VSX-1021-K
I know this is months late, and you've probably figured it out already, but set your sub to "Plus" and see if that helps.

Vsx-1021

Okay so I finally came out of the dark ages and mounted my TV on the wall. Somehow now when a AppleTV 4 outputs in stereo the 1021 only plays the .1 sub and not the 5ch!? I'm thoroughly confused. Any insights?

HDMI 1 set to AppleTV with HDMI control on

TV/SAT running from LG TV plays OTA broadcasts 5.1 whether or not source audio is stereo or 5.1 digital.

Never figured it out. I've tried everything and this POS won't output the sub. I've since given up and I am saving up for a better receiver.

Well, the day finally came and mine died (I think).
My wife wanted to redo the floors so I had to unhook everything.
After an hour of hooking everything up I turn on to do the speaker test.
Everything is going good but the right rear extra surround is not making a sound.
I go back to look at the wires and my UPS must have tripped because I moved something.
Try turning on and hear some pops, then it shuts off.
Now when I plug it in, the red MDACC light just blinks, nothing else.
Tried almost every combo in the book to reset but to no avail.

I think it is toast.

Am I crazy to want to replace it with the VSX-1024?
Other then it not lasting as long as I expected it to, I loved the receiver.

I finally figured it out. My router was dying. I replaced it and all is well. Receiver works perfectly now. It was only stalling on live streams, not on podcasts which is what led me to believe it wasn't a network problem. It was. I know many have had issues with this receiver but my experience has been good. And I've had it since they first came out. Anyway, if you're having internet radio problems try another router.

Screen Flash (frequent loss of picture)

Hi Folks,
Hoping someone has come across a fix for my issue.

I've had my vsx-1021-k for 3.5 years so far and it's been working great. Recently, however it has started doing something very annoying. While watching anything on the TV the signal seems to cut out momentarily. Sometimes its just a quick flicker and other times there's no signal for maybe 0.5-0.75 seconds... just long enough that when the signal returns the TV shows the signal information (as if I've just plugged in the HDMI). Sometime this will happen like 10 times in a row and then it wont happen for hours.

I've replaced the HDMI cable, tried different inputs on the TV, and used different sources on the received. All have the same issue. What does not seem to have the same issue is if I have the home menu up or am using HMG.

Has anyone encountered this? Otherwise it's working fine but this is so annoying that I'm thinking about getting a new one.

Can a VSX-1021 support 4K?

So here is my thing - I love my VSX-1021. Currently have my 1080p video ran through it. With that said, I am purchasing a 4K TV. Will that render my 1021 useless? Can it support 4K pass through? Or do I need to buy an all new receiver?

I just purchased a HP Stream 200 to use as a HTPC. Everything seems to be working fine except I'm only getting PCM audio on my receiver. I'm connected using a HDMI cable, I've set my VSX-1021 to direct audio, and I've set up the HP Stream speakers as 5.1, so I'm at a loss as to what I need to do to get my files with DTS for example to output the full DTS audio and not just a PCM stream to the receiver.

Thanks in advance for your help.

HDMI video + RCA audio?

Greetings,

I have an unique problem and I seek your help.

Trying to set up a karaoke machine for my in-laws. The Karaoke machine comes in 2 parts:

- a touch-screen monitor (basically a PC) with all the software. It has a HDMI output for video/audio.
- a mixer that takes RCA analog audio from the said monitor, and 2 MICs. It outputs (through RCA analog) the original songs + MICs

The machine is from asia. According to my in-laws, most people connect the touch-screen PC to a regular TV through HDMI for the video. They would mute the volume on the TV.

They will then connect the mixer to an audio speacker/receiver, and use the audio from there instead.

In my setup I have vsx-1021k connected to a projector through HDMI (inside the wall/ceiling). If I am to use the above methods, it either will be ugly or expensive.

My question is: does vsx-1021k has the ability to mix video/audio of difference source? That is, can I use the HDMI video input from the touch-screen PC and the analog audio from the mixer? According to post #24 of this very own thread it seems possible and I have not been able to achieve it.

any help is very much appreciated,

Hi Elvis Chen, connect the touch-screen PC to HDMI (VIDEO-1) input and the analog audio to AUDIO (VIDEO-1) L/R inputs. Now on the remote press "Receiver" and then press "Signal Sel" button a few times to cycle it to "Analog".

Hi guys,

Just tried updating the unit via internet (4f5a.Update) and it stayed stuck at 20%, then gave me error message "Update error 1". I restarted the unit and it appeared to work correctly except that it does not emit any sound from any of the inputs (even iTunes sees it and connects to it successfully), neither from the speakers nor the headphone jack.

Troubleshoot steps I have taken so far are:
1. Resetting the unit to its factory settings.
2. Tried installing the update (1-205-081-111-089) via a USB key but it also gets stuck at 20%.

Alas, nothing will do

Any tips are welcome. Thanks in advance.
