My AVR is connectedto the TV through the ARC using a HDMI cable. When I try to go from the AVR to BD that's when I only get audio and no video.
When I run the HDMI cable directly from the BD to the TV in HDMI 1 I get video and audio (surround sound) through the AVR.
I have 6 HDMI inputs. That is what I did. HDMI out to TV in through the ARC and set the HDMi set up to turn on the ARC.
I tried plugging the HDMI to another input and same thing happened. I treied using the HDMI 1 input on teh TV and turned off the ARC. I got audio and a picture intermittently came through but not stable. Could there be a problem with the cable itself?
The TV is hooked up through an analog satellite/cable box.
I tried running the composite connection directly to the AVR but no luck using the adaptor. No luck .
Also, I keep getting this message: " No signal ensure external device is turned on and properly connected to TV's input."
I have followed the manual's steps and cannot get the video signal with this configuration.
But all works with video signal and audio when I go directly from the BlueRay (BD) to the TV input HDMI 1
Not sure if that is the best optimal way to do it.
Solved my problem of no video signal. Turned out.... it was not the AVR. I reset the resolution on the BD player according to the manual and behold ..... video. Everything is working fine now.
Thanks for your help ...
Glad you got that sorted out... Good to hear it wasn't the unit itself...
I use an AppleTV connected to a Pioneer VSX-42 receiver and a Pioneer TC-50PU54 TV. The TV and AppleTV are connected to the VSX-42 via HDMI. It used to work perfectly for over a year. As of last week, now I can only listen to music over AppleTV, if the Panasonic TV is turned on. Previously I could have the TV off and the sound still came through the external speakers. Sound still comes through external speakers when TV is on. Any idea what setting might have changed that requires me to keep the TV on to hear music from the AppleTV?
Apologies for double posting in this and the VSX-1022-k thread - neither one seems to be getting a lot of traffic. Anyway, I'm picking up a used VSX-42 tomorrow, and I'm wondering if it as the capability to adjust the eq for each channel manually. I can do that on my VSX-1121-k, and it makes a huge difference to the sound - I hated the way MCACC set it, but I love the sound now that I set it manually. Can the 42/1022-k do this?
Well, I pulled the trigger. Its virtually brand new, $220, nov 2012 build. My question now is, how do I adjust the sound to my liking, rather than just taking what mcacc gives me? I see a bass and treble adjustment on the remote, but is there a more detailed adjustment in the menus somewhere? According to the manual, there is no Manual MCACC, like the 1121 has, but I find it hard to believe there is no manual eq option.
Now, what do I do with a very nice VSX-1121 with a dead hdmi out? The replacement board was over $300.
I also took a couple of pics of the two units side by side for a comparison. The 1121 is a LOT bigger than the 42. I'll see if I can upload them
I just picked up a used VSX-42. All I am using it for right now is HDMI switching, as I haven't purchased any speakers yet. I am having difficulty figuring out how to get this unit to pass audio over HDMI to my TV. Video works fine. It also works if I put the receiver in Standby mode, but surely there's a better way, since I need to be able to switch between inputs on the receiver. Can someone help me out?
now for my question, is there a way to change the name of the inputs? i have not been able to find that option anywhere. maybe a special menu? its a small thing but i like to be able to assign actual names like Apple TV or PS3 or Xfinity etc. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
