Hi. I'm just pulling this from somewhat distant memory but I have an SC-67 and a Panasonic TV. I had a similar problem that was based on the remote toggling the power on and off (they were out of sync too). I eventually fixed it by going thru the user's guide.

As an example though, here's what I referred to get everything in sync: Take a look at the section "Controlling the rest of your system" in your respective Pioneer user's guide <http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/StaticFiles/Manuals/Home/SC-67_OperatingInstructions061512.pdf> as a starting point.

Thank you, I glanced through the file and tried toggling the setting on both the receiver (SC-67) and a Panasonic Viera TC-P65VT60, but no luck. It's the same situation whether I use the receiver remote, or TV remote. I'm actually not too "displeased" with it turning everything off with a single button push...it's just odd and only slightly annoying that the TV turns the receiver off when turned on.

Unhappy Windows 10 USB-DAC Driver.

I'm kind of upset. I got a new Windows 10 computer and tried to hook it up to the USB-DAC on this receiver. When I tried to load the windows drivers I got a message that the drivers on the AVNavigator disk are not compatible with Windows 10. I figured I could just download updated drivers from Pioneer. After all it is only 3 years old. I could not find any updated drivers on Pioneer's site nor Googling for them. I called Pioneer support and on a call back was told that Pioneer had no plans to issue updated Windows USB-DAC drivers. I am stuck with an unusable solution for listening to music using the SC-68's DAC. Too bad as it worked so well with Windows 7. I guess I am going to have to buy an outboard USB-DAC or pony-up $2500.00 for an SC-99

Before you give up in disgust, try this: right click on the installer program and click Properties. Then click on the Compatibility tab, check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' and Windows 7 should already be selected. Then click Apply and OK and try again.

Steve - Thanks for the suggestion. The driver loaded and as far as the device manager is concerned everything is working normally. And is is most of the time. Now I am hearing random static. I can pause the recording and start it again but eventually the static returns. I have heard the static while using Jriver, Foobar and iTunes. It can happen with various formats.

I connected a MacBook Pro to the USB-Dac. Native support for USB Audio 2.0. After 3.5 hours using iTunes, JRiver and Audirvana there has been no problems. I am inclined to believe that drivers are causing the problems but there is nothing in the event log to confirm.

Is it static or drop outs? Frankly, I haven't used the USB DAC from my computer to the receiver - I'm just passing the audio over HDMI and it's been flawless as long as I'm using the receiver's DTS and Dolby codecs. I've had cases on other computers (using their own audio outputs) where I've had drop outs but the problem solved itself over time.

SC-67 3D issue

HI,
does anyone with a SC-67/78 have issues with 3D playback ?
I have eliminated the Pioneer BD player and the TV and cables by directly bypassing the receiver and testing all those successfully. I tried every conceivable option and am really frustrated. Really appreciate if someone can share something on this ?
I am able to play 4K content but not 3D !!
I just added a LG65EF9500 TV. For over 2 years I had this setup with out a 3D TV and now when I finally added the TV the receiver does not work with 3D. The manual says it supports 3D but not much else in detail.
Hope someone can share any experiences or information on this.
Regards.

UE22 error code

I had to disconnect my SC-68 for two weeks while some remodeling was going on. When I reset up my system, the SC-68 is displaying a flashing error code of UE22. I looked this up and it says it is a firmware update error. The firmware was last updated a couple of years ago and when I checked for the latest firmware and downloaded it and tried an update I got the message that I had the latest firmware already. Everything seems to work just fine. Any ideas where this error code is coming from and how to eliminate it?

Hate to say it but this is generally not good. Sometimes you can do a hard reset and it will be fine, sometimes it only lasts for a couple weeks then running times get shorter and shorter before it happens again and you ultimately end up with a brick. That's what happened to me and I had to get the A/V board replaced. Luckily mine was still in warranty (with only a couple months left) but it's likely yours is not. If the board needs to be replaced you're looking at about $600 or so. You'll have to decide for yourself if it's worth fixing or just getting a newer model.

If the wires are correct ignore the error and go on with the cal. Various things can cause that to happen but the AVr can handle it.

No sound from Pioneer SC-68

Hi. I bought an SC-68 several years back. Last time I used it was for a blue ray disk playing a real nice concert in 7.1 and it worked fine. Then it languished unused for several years, and was probably messed around with by the kids. Now it won't make a sound, even from headphones, with the source set to a local FM station. Where do I start?

My SC-77 showed a server error on Pandora yesterday. I haven't attempted it again since.

I'm now getting the same error for SiriusXM too. Apparently Pandora broke the Pioneer interface and Pioneer is working it. But I can't find much on the SiriusXM.

The SC-77 has V-Tuner instead of SiriusXM, and I haven't tried it. I'm actually only on this tread because I was seriously considering an SC-67 before buying my SC-77. (I actually ordered an SC-67 and then cancelled the order before picking it up.) I still subscribe to this thread because I find much of the information relevant to the SC-77.

My Pandora failed to connect with the "server error". I wrote Pandora. They basically said they were working with Pioneer. I called Pioneer and they said it should be about a week or two before they have the firmware update for the fix on 2013 models, which my SC-68 is.

Follow up post: No word from Pioneer on a firmware update and it's been 3 weeks. They said they would give me a $495 trade-in credit on a refurb SC-81 or 91 unit that won't fit the bill for my current setup. Bottom line, Pioneer sucks. I'm in the market for a new AVR that has a subwoofer output for zone 2. Once I find it this POS will be going on craigslist and I will no longer buy Pioneer products.

I'm surprised that there is no update for the SC-6X series yet. Firmware fixing the Pandora issue on the SC-75/77/79 was released on December 7.

It appears that Pioneer is taking about 2-3 months between f/w updates for their receivers. So if the last f/w update was released 12/7/16, the next one will probably be available in March 2017.

Pandora will break the server connectivity again in 2020—every 4 years?

Their website has a hyperlink but it doesn't work. Is this because there is no Pandora update yet or is the link dead?

The latest available firmware update for the SC-65/67/68 is 1-204-084-513-160 which appears to have been released on January 21, 2013, far longer than 2-3 months ago. It is available on the Pioneer website page for each respective model under the "DOWNLOADS" tab, and the "SC-6X Firmware Update" link. I have confirmed that it will download from the SC-67 page.

As I stated above, an updated firmware for the SC-75/77/79 models (the next year models after the SC-65/67/68) has been released by Pioneer and it does fix the Pandora issue. Pioneer is not releasing new firmware updates for these models every 2-3 months. Once every 2-3 years is more like it, and I think they are unlikely to make further updates unless there is something like this Pandora issue that needs to be fixed, and then only if they receive enough complaints about the issue.

Maybe I misunderstood what you were saying here. I see that the Pandora fix for the SC-85/87/89 was released on October 11; for the SC-95/97/99 on October 18; and the SC-75/77/79 on December 7. Maybe that means the fix for the SC-65/67/68 will be available in February?

I just got an email from Pioneer stating they are not going to release a Pandora fix for the SC-6x. About a month ago I received a response saying they were working on it. I'm not feeling so elite anymore.

It seems they (particularly someone going by the name Bryan) have been playing this game in order to sell refurbished units. Perhaps this is a result of the Pioneer line being owned by Onkyo now. It is ridiculous for Pioneer to say that they "are not in a position to remedy this situation" when they designed the Pandora function of the receiver to be firmware updatable. Apparently Pioneer/Onkyo needs to learn that failing to provide firmware updates to maintain the function and operation of their firmware updatable products (or threats of such from their employees) will not result in trade-in/refurbish sales and upgrades from disappointed customers, and will instead damage the company's reputation and its sales.

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone had experience running a 5.2.4 configuration with a Pioneer SC67? I was planning on putting in the ceiling speakers for any future updates into the Atmos world.

Anyone has any experience with this?

thanks
