The biggest change is that you now have access to the keypad and can change the setup without the remote or having to see the screen of the receiver

I had sworn off pioneer but this is encouraging

I even bought a pio car receiver

Well done pioneer

Well gee.... FINALLY they get with the program. Proves the point I made a long time ago... backwards compatibility shouldn't have been that difficult to implement with the iControl software. Either the were being lazy or purposely avoided making it play with previous year models.

Fine and dandy... BUT:

UE22 Error in Pioneer Receivers

I have heard this error code happening with some SC-55/57 and other Pioneer receivers.

To quote David Susilo who frequently visits and comments here on AVS:

"The unit needs to go for repair. UE22 error also means that the chip which stores the firmware data is kaput".

I wonder how frequently this happens. If it happens to a Pioneer receiver that has no warranty left, how much would it cost to fix it? Perhaps it was a problem only in 2011 model year Pioneer receivers. Any thoughts on this issue?


Edit: Did some research on this issue and some claim that to get rid of this code you have to do a factory reset and that should solve the problem. Can someone verify this?

After the issue I reported in this thread back in July, it was working fine up until I got home yesterday. Fired it up only to find it blinking with this dreaded UE22 error. And no... a factory reset would not resolve it. After a hard power cycle, it no longer displayed the error. HDMI video was working, but all audio from the receiver was dead. Not even a squawk from the tuner. After some additional fiddle-farting around, I tried to flash it with the latest firmware... but it would die at 20% with UPDATE ERROR 1. Power cycle again, and right back where I started. KAPUT.

I guess I am a glutton for punishment, as I just replaced it with an SC-87. At least getting a few more months out of it I get the added features of the next generation past the SC-77 I would have been stuck with previously.

What are you gonna do, when everything seems to progress/regress into throw-away tech?!? :/

I have been away for a long time, but my Sc-55 is mis behaving

So sound, video from just 2 of the hdmi inputs

It was working fine, but my project today was to :
Run longer cables to tv
Fix a network issue with a component
Clean up some cabling

So I spun the rack and got to work.
During process disconnected cables from oppo and directv

Things went back together and tested my URC total control to make sure things worked before Spun things back around

Noticed the problem
Couldn't even get the OSD to display , but video from Xbox and appletv worked. Move directv and oppo to where appletv input is and see them but hdmi 1 and 2 don't work. No sound, no OSD and who knows what

Hard reset didn't help
Did what I hate to do and removed the receiver and off to shop next week
