I'm new to the forum but I desperately need your help. I just installed a brand new Pioneer VSX-51 in a newly built home with all new ceiling speakers and RBH speakers for the living room. I also own a Pioneer Plasma 5020FD which is linked to the VSX-51. I have one HDMI going from the output of the Comcast cable box (Motorola) to the HDMI 1 input on the VSX-51 as suggested in the manual. Then I have another HDMI cable going from the HDMI Output on the VSX-51 to HDMI Input 4 on the 5020FD TV. Everything works fine except I cannot get the "pass through" of video and audio to the TV when the receiver is in Standby mode. Does anyone know how to get "pass through" of the video and sound to the TV before my wire forces me to sell my receiver! She is so upset with me and is fit to be tied that she cannot bypass the receiver and use the TV like we had before.
Also, I made sure "Control" was "On", "TV Audio Setting" is set to "via HDMI", "Standby Through" setting is set to "Normal" but I even tried "Eco" and it does not work. I have done everything the manual says but still nothing and I even tried different settings withing these parameters. Has anyone been successful at getting pass through to work with this receiver?
