The warranty starts on whatever date is on your receipt. Period. Pioneer has no idea how long any unit may have been open and on a shelf for. All the receipt indicates is open box. It doesn't say, open box and used on a shelf for 11 months. It starts at the point you purchase the item.
That would be like buying a brand new car from a Ford dealer and the Ford corporation saying, well... the car was delivered to the dealership a year ago, and a few people test drove it, so we'll only be honoring two years of the three year factory warranty. It just doesn't happen that way.
