I have my STB connected to the receiver and the receiver outputs thru HDMI to TV.
Apparently it is possible to have the receiver turned off and the sound and video will still pass through and use the TV solely for output.
I have turned on the Control with HDMI functions on the receiver however when I power off the receiver I get no picture and no audio. According to the manual on page 49 it should work?
It's a little confusing because I can't seem to find if standby mode is the same as power off.
Thanks in advance for the assistance.
I was able to change it to Pass Through on the receiver however when I turn the TV on it goes through the amp just the same, and when I turn off the amp there is still no audio or picture on TV.
I am now able to change the Pass Through function on the receiver because I had the sync feature enabled on the TV. Once I turned that off the HDMI Pass Through on the Receiver was able to be changed easily.
However I still have to leave the receiver on in order to see the picture and sound. The manual for the receiver keeps mentioning Standby Mode but doesn't say how to put it in that mode. Pressing the power button just turns off the receiver?
That's the strange thing, I find this manual a bit confusing, however when I follow page 51 the HDMI option does not show in the menu. At the top of page 51 it says some items may not appear depending on the state of your receiver???
There is a note F: that says see page 48 as synchronized Amp Mode must be turned on.
I have set it up that way on TV as soon as I turn on TV the amp turns on.
It is quite strange that you do not get the HDMI option that is on page 51! Scroll through the audio settings one more time and make sure you are not getting it.
The ARC setting should not interfere with the pass through, but just to make sure try with the ARC off.
Even after setting everything up properly my receiver ( SC-1323) was not giving me audio pass through (video was working fine), but then it started working by itself, just like that. I guess pioneers do have some issues with pass through.
When I turn the receiver off the TV shows that it is transferring audio to TV so the connection is there however when the receiver fully shuts down the TV goes blank.
I wonder if anyone who owns a Pioneer AVR may be able to chime in on this problem as well. I am wondering if anyone has this function working on Pioneer receivers.
Anyone with a Pioneer have this working ??
