I would like to thank all those who have submitted their UE22 Error incidents for this thread to date. It is hoped that other affected Pioneer owners would share their story here so this thread can gain more traction with Onkyo/Pioneer.
I believe that the chances are good that Onkyo/Pioneer will respond to the many failed Pioneer and Pioneer Elite units manufactured in 2011 and 2012 based on a decision made by Onkyo on August 19, 2014.
Please see below Onkyo's Customer Care Program for failed receiver units between 2009 and 2012:

Also, see the actual AVS thread below that details and tracts the Customer Care Program for the failed Onkyo receiver units.
Onkyo acknowledges failed units and extending warrranties until 2018
I see many similarities with the Onkyo and Pioneer failed receivers in that you clearly see that it was a manufacturing defect that could not be connected to owner use or handling in any way.
