I read this thread pretty well. Im looking for re-assurance that I made the right decision to get the PIO VXS1121 vs. the YAMMY RX-A1000.
Other than the dual hdmii and a few less component video inputs,triggers it seems like techwise its very good. This is a rec-room AVR for my Athena Micra 6 set with sub, I have a 73 3d-DLP,
Replacing a Sony 5300ES there.
Newegg knocked off 25 off of 479.99 today for me for an order snaffu. I originally ordered the yamaha and cancelled. Replaced order for the Pioneer.I hear the amp/ps section is very similar to its ELITE sibling. Good to know.
I enjoy airplay immensely on my AVR4311 Denon. So Im hoping this will satisfy me. Will be connecting directv HD DVR, ps3, xbox 360 , Wii and HTPC/GTX460 combo. This way i wont have to get an Atv2, I do have a boxee box too. Not sure if im sending this back though or not.
My only upset is 1 hdmi vs 2/ I wanted to drive a second display via cat5 /hdmi baluns that is a vizio 26" 1080p set,
Should passthrough support DVR to VIZIO tv in guest bedroom? Is that what HDMI passthrough will achieve. Obviously I will have to have an HDMI switch / amp of sorts to get that arrangement working with the 73" primary display and vizio 1080p 26" . Yes?
Very Cool IPAD Support=check
Ive owned ESx3, Denon, and now Pioneer.
This receiver seems like it has sooo much bang for the buck and good quality insides....I did a good thing????? Right???
Newegg RX-A1000 = Cancelled
Newegg VSX-1121 = Charged
Yamaha app, is slightly better than the denon factory app on ios, but the pioneer native ipad app rulez (from the demo anyways).
Im going to end up with a hdmi splitter with 3 outs i think. One for HDMI1 on Mits 73" , One for HDMI2 on Mits 73" and one for HDMI 1 on Vizio26" 1080p display.
Why run same hdmi to diff inputs on the DLP...Simple, One input is set in 3d Mode, and the other is not, Just make a quick key on the harmony called " 3DMode" . that switched to HDMI2, Keeps the color settings correct for 2D and torch mode 3D...Those Mitsubishi teals suck on the 833, 835 models. Cheaper than a new tv though.
