I bought a Pioneer VSX-921-K receiver on Dec 26, 2011. It just started to not output video from any device source other than the Cogeco HD PVR (a Pace). Last week it was working perfectly on all sources so I am not sure what happened since nothing has been changed. I have tried to reset the receiver using the procedure in the manual and it did not work (it did reset, but the problem remains.
Audio does come from all the sources (A Pioneer DVD, an Apple iTV, PC input via HDMI, iPAD though Apple HDMI adapter), but no video from any of these is displayed. The red HDMI connected light does light on the receiver when connected to these sources and the audio is getting through. Just not video.
Even when I can see video from the HD Box, if I enter the Pioneer’s setup menu while using the HD Box, the setup menu’s do NOT appear on the TV. I can see them on the AV receiver screen text, but they do not appear on the TV. It looks like nothing is getting through the AV receiver’s output except the pass thru of the cable box video signal.
Interestingly if I set the receiver to DVD, and then turn on the DVD player, the DVD's "Pioneer" logo displays briefly, then the screen goes blank and there is no video. Its like it gets thru for a brief moment, then is gone.
I am a Pioneer fan (the TV is a 5 yr old 50” Pioneer plasma ), but this is frustrating!
