Hey guys I have a question about my Pioneer vsx-1015tx receiver.. When I play games I like to have the volume up loud, but lately it hasnt been letting me listen to it ad loud as I would prefer.. It goes fine for a minute and then when something loud happens in the game, it shuts off.. For instance, playing MLB 13, when I throw a strike the crowd roars and as soon as they roar my receiver shuts off.. Is there something I can do about this? Like I said, I really enjoy listening to my stuff loud,I want to feel like im right there, after all thats why I bought this receiver years ago! I also have a powered subwoofer, tried turning that off still the same result. Tried messing with the EQ, tried different surround modes, seems like the only one that doesnt shut off at a certain level is Stereo... The volume I prefer to listen at is loud but reasonable, im not going crazy cranking it up to plus20 or anything smile.gif Anyways, any help is very much appreciated!!

Yeah, your speaker wires shorted somewhere. Try disconnect all wires on both ends and connect back one by one.

Don't feel dumb. We all have been there, done that. That's why I now use banana plugs exclusively.
