My Center speaker is plugged in and I am getting full sound out of it, all voices. There was just a strange, low volume muffled echo of the voices coming from what seemed the rest of my speakers.
I think I fixed it. In my settings I had my front and rear speakers set to different Small and Large. I changed them all to the same and set the subwoofer to No and it seems to have fixed the problem.
I am new on this site.
I have a Hisense 55M7000 which supports ARC on HDMI 2 port, so I've connected this to my Pioneer 521 via the TV out HDMI port.
No sound unless I also connect an optical connection but this causes issues with the CEC and switching on and off control.
I suspect I need to enable to ARC but from what I've read I need a working remote control to access the setup menu, it appears my remote has stopped working.
Please advise on how to resolve?
I could try and locate a replacement remote on eBay if required.
Hi, I have a pair of Power Acoustik HP-902RFT headphones that I'm trying to get to work with my Pioneer VSX-821-K receiver. I can't get sound to come out of the headphones though.
The cable DVR and bluray player are connected to the receiver via HDMI. The receiver is connected to the TV via HDMI. The headphones are connected to the receiver via RCA left/right cables to the DVR/BDR audio out plugs.
However, no matter what I do I can't get the sound to come from the headphones. I know the headphones work because I tested them separately plugged directly into the cable DVR box.
Anybody know what I could be doing wrong?

Does anyone here happen to have an OEM remote and/or the calibration mic that I could either purchase, or even borrow for about a week to set mine up. I just received this receiver but without remote and microphone. Yes, I do understand that I am just registered here but I am seriously interested.
No sound on Pioner VSX521 on "DVD IN" and "DVD-R IN"
Apologies for the probably stupid question, I'm using Pioneer VSX521and enjoy image and sound on inputs BD and VIDEO.
However, if I plug same equipment to "DVD IN" or "DVR IN" (HDMI input right next to VIDEO and BD, I have image but no sound.
I checked the HDMI setup, and I checked STEREO versus DOLBY sound setup, nothing found.
ANy idea why 2 specific input would not give audio?
Check the audio settings in the Pioneer's menu. I am not totally familiar with Pioneer, but with Marantz and NAD, for example, some sources default their audio input to optical or coax digital inputs. You may need to change that to HDMI audio in the menu.
