Sorry for the basic question, is there any way to set this receiver up to use Stereo w/ Subwoofer? I have spent way too long trying to get this to work. I install commercial AV equipment for living and it always boggles my mind how difficult they make setting all this stuff up. I have downloaded the software, run through everything with the Advanced MCACC, it recognized that my system only had a L,R and Sub. It also had a really interesting EQ curve particularly around the crossover frequency of my L and R speakers, but that is for another post.

Any ideas on this or should I just return it and try to find a basic 5.1 receiver?

*Forgot to mention, I found the F.S. Surround Setting, and it works with the L and R speakers, but does appear to be sending any signal to the subwoofer output*

Thanks

Yes you need to set the subwoofer setting to plus in the menu.

I think it's under speaker settings somewhere.

Check page 85 of the manual under the "Manual Speaker Setup" heading.

Just read through this entire thread.

Thinking about getting this to replace a VSX-53 with a failing HDMI board.

Has the RGB crushed blacks issue been resolved? This is a big deal for me as I am a pretty big gamer with last gen and current gen consoles. If this hasn't been fixed through pioneer, what is the best way to setup the consoles with regards to RGB vs.Y ouput and what should the receiver be set to?

Thanks

Is there a "Programming the Pioneer VSX 1123 K for Dummies" manual? I do not understand half the stuff they say in the actual manual. My last reciever was 20 years old. I'm old school.

Anyone know why I might be getting an echoy-ping type noise from my left and right surrounds? It is only when the input may not be 5.1 or 7.1 say during commercials while watching a lions game. Do not hear it from fronts or center. Never happens while xbox one is the input. My speakers are all Pioneer Andrew Jones and the output is to a projector.
You've gotta help me, I've tried nothin' and I'm all out of ideas

Many vsx 1123 troubles

Please help.Im lost after many hours.
I have a small business that has a tv and 4 speakers in main area and also a back room with tv and 2 speakers.
I also want to connect my 12 camera security system thru the reciver to see on tvs.
I would like to know best method to wire and setting for the vsx 1123 ?
The 6 speakers are all wall mounted/wired and hdmi wires all ran to tvs and cameras.
I plan to listen mainly to music/video,sports and ocasional movie.
i would like the option of watching/listening to same things on both tvs.
would like to control it all with ipad and iphone.
I have a sc 1522 at home and was able to wire up a 9.2 theater without issue and for the life of me cannot figure the vsx 1123 out.

i already have the Icontrolav2013 downloaded and cannot get ipad,iphone or android to connect. just keep getting retry error.
The reciver is ethernet hardwired to back of comcast X1 modem/router combo(tried 3 seperate cables) and tried wireless adapter from sc 1522 with no help.

Hi folks.
I was ready to buy the Yamaha V675 at $399 until I saw this Pioneer VS-1123 at $50 cheaper! Before I pull the trigger can you please confirm it will handle my key requirements?

1. Receiver automatically powers on when I play Airplay using my iPhone. In other words, I can hear my music simply by using my phone without having to mess with the receiver.
2. I can play Airplay music out to my patio speakers using the powered Zone 2.
3. The receiver auto powers down after inactivity. These things get so hot I love the fact that they will auto power off after inactivity.

Thanks!

  1. Yes
  2. Yes
  3. Yes
Of course, you have to enable settings for each of those items, but the AVR has those three features.
