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:

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?!? :/
