Hello everyone

Sorry for the newbie question but I just got the pioneer sc71 , connected it, followed AVnavigator and most everything seems to be working ok. Sounds tests passed, Blu ray works, Internet radio, airplay, etc

My question is , should I be able to each cable tv (cox) while the receiver and speakers are not on. Lets say it is late at night, family asleep and I just want to watch tv with its picture and sound.

I have all hdmi going to receiver and the hdmi out (1) going to the television. Currently when I turn off the receiver I lose all audio and video to tr television

Any help/advise would be great

Your model supports that feature, although there is likely a setting which must be enabled. Check your Owner's manual to confirm the setting.

Jdsmoothie. Thank you so much. I had to get out of basic config mode, choose hdmi passthrough and select the cable box hdmi input.

Thanks for the help. I was going insane lol
