Does anyone have any recommendations on a remote for this?
Had some issues, but evrything seemd to be OK until recently.
Now I have no connectivity to the internet, e.g. s/w updates etc.
Tried resetting it but no help.
Everything else seems to be OK, just no connectivity and the iPad app doesn't work anymore.

I put the max Volume to cut at 00dB. Im loosing my hair havent sleep in three days trying to figure this out. please help
I`ve read through this thread and found some really useful information but nothing relating to my problem so, I thought I would post a question and hopefully get some help.
The problem with my 1122 is that I am unable to stream music from my PC to the receiver. I have cable internet and the modem/router is next to the receiver which is connected with a cat 6 cable. The rest of the house is wireless, I have 2 laptops, both with windows 7, 64 bit and media player 12. On both laptops, the 1122 shows up in the "devices and printers" section of control panel and in the network settings of the receiver, there is an IP address and mac address displayed. The music folders on the pc`s have been set to "share" with all users on the network and in media player, under the "stream" tab, the "automatically allow devices to play my media" check box has been checked. In the "media streaming options" of control panel, I have set the 1122 to the "allowed" setting. One thing I`m not sure about is that when I go into "network and internet" in control panel and select "see full map," everything on the network is there however, the 1122 is at the bottom of the page under the heading " the following discovered devices can not be placed on the map" and I don`t understand why it has been placed there. I wonder if that has anything to do with it. Incidentally, I also have a netgear wi-fi range extender in-between the modem router and one of the laptops.
I have a feeling that it`s probably some network setting or something that I have overlooked so, If somebody could suggest something, I would really appreciate it.
Many thanks for reading this post.
I downloaded and installed that program but for some reason it won`t run. When I click on it, nothing happens. I tried downloading it from other sites but it was still the same so i`ll have to try something else. In the 1122 manual, it states that media player 11 or 12 is needed so, it should work. It`s not a firewall issue because I turned it off and disabled the antivirus program and it was still the same. I`ll have a look in the manual and see if I can do a factory re-set and start again. Sometimes that fixes problems.
Thanks again Steve.
I couldn`t find anything in the manual that explains how to do a factory re-set so I suppose it`s possible that it can`t be done so, I thought I would ask here. Does anyone know if it`s possible to do a factory re-set and if so, I would really appreciate some advice.
I have an vsx-1122 with the following inputs
directv - sat
ps4 - hdmi 6
all to a samsung tv
when switching from ps4/hdmi 6 back to sat, it sometimes has choppy audio and the only way to fix is to cycle inputs and then it comes back most of the time. Sometimes I have to turn on and off the receiver. It rarely happens with the other inputs, to be honest I don't think that it has happened with any of the other inputs.
I have changing HDMI cables, do I have a faulty receiver or what could be the problem?
I purchased this receiver about 14 months ago, and it's been in my family room HT system since.
This has turned out to be the worst receiver I have ever purchased, and I have owned several in my life (starting in the 60's) some of those being Pioneer & pioneer elite. I have to continually unplug it and let it sit for a few minutes, then plug it back in to reset it. Networking has pretty much stopped working so it is unable to connect to the internet...also that causes the iPad app to not work either. Additionally, now when I turn it on it won't connect or pass the cable box signal; so I have to rotate the selector knob to another source then back to the cable box input to get it to pass the signal. If I reset it, then it works properly for a while, then it needs resetting again. I know what to do, but it confounds my wife, so she's unable to watch TV until I come reset the unit AGAIN!
One of the reasons that I purchased this unit was that I really liked my older Pioneer Elite (VSX-72TVX) Receiver and I actually prefer the sound and operability that comes with that receiver, unfortunately it doesn't pass 1080p.
So, I really can't recommend this receiver to anyone. Some of them apparently work pretty well, but there are over 75, 1 & 2 star reviews on Amazon that indicates that there is an innate problem with them.
I'm really sorry I bought this receiver, and I doubt that I'll buy another Pioneer product if at all possible.
Wish you the best.
Well, for the money I spent, I think it should be perfect whether it was made before tea or not...on any day.
The unit is in a kitchen cabinet arrangement in the family room, 3' x 2' x 1.5 feet. It doesn't really get hot, maybe + 10 deg from room after running all day...room is 70 to 75F.
Yes, it's on a surge suppressor, but in NorCal, we don't' have surges like the mid-west or south.
No, I didn't contact Pioneer because it's out of warrantee and given the responses others have gotten (unplug, wait 10 minutes & plug back in) or take it to a repair center, didn't seem that helpful to me. My guess is that it's would be $200-300 to get it fixed, then I'd have the same piece of junk in my cabinet.
Now there's 2 things wrong...network "card" doesn't work or works 5% of the time and the input selection know needs to be rotated manually occasionally to get it to pass the HDMI signal. Not sure what's next; so I'm dis-inclined to put any more $ in it.
Another way is to reserve the DHCP IP address in the router and then manually configure the same address on the receiver.
I haven't tried re-doing the network settings in the receiver for a while. I'll try again tonight.
The last 2 or 3 times I was in there trying to get this thing to work, I would change something then select OK to get the receiver to update and the receiver would go into the "updating" mode and never come out of it.
I think one time I let it sit for 2 hours and when I came back it was still trying to "update".
Since it's in a remote location (and on an A/V bridge), I wasn't sure about the connectivity. But the TV, BD player, Roku, etc. are all hooked up to the bridge and stream video fine, so the bridge is good. I even exchanged ports on the bridge with the receiver and the BD player & then the Roku. The receiver still had issues and the BD player/Roku streamed video thru both ports I had them attached to.
So to make sure the receiver was hooked up to the internet, I ran a longish cat 5 cable direct from the router into the back of the receiver...same results as using the bridge, no joy.
I'm so tired of F'ing with this thing. I may just try to find a used 3 or 4 year old higher-end Elite receiver and throw this thing in the trash.
Can anyone tell me how to play Windows Media Player files through the 1122k?
