post #4741 of 5121
Went to the Pioneer repair place and the guy said the remote checks out but didn't know what the problem could be. I didn't really like the place so I don't think I'll bring it there but it could be the board or a loose connection or something like that.

I tried last night on my P65 Panny with a PS3 and it worked with 3D. I did notice some noise on the screen when I looked at it without glasses but when I put them on I didn't see anything wrong with the picture and the 3D looked just as good when I hooked up my PS3 directly to my TV.

The noise was like tiny black dots and I did notice something like that when I hooked the PS3 straight to my TV as well. I just got the TV so I'll have to do some more testing but I was glad to see that it worked since I didn't want to have to buy a new receiver just for 3D support.

Hi all, first time poster long time reader.

I have DirecTV HR24 box-->HDMI-->VSX 1019-->HDMI-->Samsung UN46C6300.

Speakers are a hodge podge of leftovers to be replaced. They are 2 6ohm bookshelf for the front right & left channel; a 6ohm center; and 2 8ohm surrounds. I use an old Yammy R-300 stereo receiver as an amp to power the passive sub.

My second hand VSX-1019AHK will at times switch to the mcacc setup screen. I bought the receiver a few months back and the person who sold it to me did not have the mcacc mic or the pio remote control.

I'll be watching tv and suddenly it switches into mcacc setup. It takes away the video & audio feed. If I go standby/power up it will work for a bit then without fail switch back to mcacc setup. I have not been able to pinpoint the cause, but I suspect it's a heat issue. The Pio cs email solution was to keep the remote away from it and see if that works...?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Hi guys. I'm trying to solve a weird issue with my receiver, and I'm hoping someone here can give me an idea of how to fix it.

The problem is, I'm not getting any video from the HDMI out port. The audio plays fine -- it's just the video that seems to be affected. This is the case no matter if the connected AV component is hooked up via HDMI or component input.

I've troubleshot this enough to know for sure, that the TV, AV components and cables are all working. It's only when I try to route them through the receiver that the video drops out. (Component output works fine, but I'd really like to get the HDMI out working!)

Has anyone encountered anything like this before? Any idea how to fix it? I'd really appreciate any advice you might have.

I have a VSX-919 and after remodeling the family room, need to rerun MCACC but cannot find the microphone anywhere. Can I purchase a replacement from Pioneer or if anyone would be willing to loan theirs to a total stranger, PM me and I will pay the shipping both ways. Thanks.

My suggestion is to just bite the bullet and buy a new one ($36) found at this link:

Then make sure you put it in a safe place.

I have a VSX-919 and a Comcast set-top box with DVI and component video and SPDIF audio. I also have a single HDMI connection to a Panny plasma on the wall to the 919. Can the 919 combine the component video with the SPDIF audio out of the set-top box into an HDMI out to my plasma?

Noob question - Have read dozens of pages in this forum. People mention firmware updates to their 1019. But - how the heck do you do a firmware update? I don't even know how to check which firmware version I have, let alone going about updating it, if needed.

Will someone please be kind and take pity, and explain this in a very straight-forward manner?

Thanks for all who read and reply. I appreciate your knowledge and time.

As far as I know, you can only get a FW update (if there is one) at a Pio service center.

Now for my question/problem.
My setup: HTPC->VSX 919-> LG 37LG5000 Full HD LCD TV

HTPC: C2D CPU with a Nvidia GTS 450 card, 275.33 drivers, conected with a HDMI to the HDMI 1 input on the VSX 919.

The problem:
If I want to set the resolution to 1920x1080, the picture is set off-center and just can't "fill" the screen (see picturees belov). Opened the manual (page 66) and wanted to try some video optiones. But when I press the receiver button and then the Video Parameters I ony get NOT AVAILABLE flashing text on the receiver.
I don't have the issue with 1280x720 resolution.
Any ideas?

If you check back thru the forum, you will find that one member here had the firmware update and would send it to you with the instructions for how to apply it. I know that is how I got it. I as sorry but I do not remember who the person was who was supplying it but you should be able to find it.

I've only ran into one problem with 3d support and it is with Avatar the movie. All other 3d signals work so nit sure what is different.

What problem did you run into? was it with the video, audio, or both? How do you have it connected? HDMI from bluray to pioneer, then pioneer HDMI to TV? or did you separate the audio video so video from bluray directly to TV, and audio only from bluray to receiver?

Thanks.
post #4755 of 5121
apparently my receiver didn't come with the iPod/iPhone cable or I've lost it (but never used/seen it) and I bought the VSX-1019 about a year ago.

Anyone interested in selling theirs (PM me) or know where I can buy a new one?

Thanks for everyone's help!!

This is the member (HKAN) who provided the firmware update. Here is the link.

your welcome. just be very careful doing the firmware update as if it goes bad you could brick your receiver. As long as you follow the directions you should be good.

I have the same problem with this receiver. I have to turn it off and on, pull out the hdmi and other annoying steps for it to finally send a signal. I'm hoping I can get a firmware update that can fix this problem.

Have you made sure KuroLink is turned off in the settings? I think that affects HDMI signals. Try that and let me know if it helped!

Good advice. He should also turn off HDMI CEC (or Anynet+) in his TV and AV components.

I've been reading up on stereo signals with matrixed audio and de-matrixing them with Pro Logic II.

The Auto/ALC/Direct modes will supposedly select Pro Logic II if something is a stereo surround matrix format (pg. 53 in the manual). Page 115 narrows this down to show that for 2-channel inputs, only Dolby Digital Surround will automatically be processed with PLII in the Auto modes. My first question is, has anyone actually seen this happen?

Secondly, is it possible for other stereo formats (besides DD Surround) to contain matrixed surround, and if so, is there a way of determining if that's the case on the receiver? Namely, if I'm watching a TV show in stereo and turn on PLII, I'd be curious to know whether it's simply de-matrixing the surround signals that are already there, or if it's doing more advanced processing on a purely stereo signal.

I have the 1019 (with 5.1 speakers) and a fat PS3 set up to output LPCM over HDMI. I was watching the new Lord of the Rings Extended Edition Blu-rays, which have 6.1 DTS-HD MA audio. I noticed that for some reason the receiver was showing the input signal as 7.1, by the icons in the upper-left of the display. Curious, I double-checked my audio settings on the PS3 and had it re-run the auto detect, and it would only detect 5.1 and 7.1 LPCM modes, not any 6.1 modes. I can't say whether it was set for 6.1 in the past, or whether I've listened to discs with 6.1 audio and how they were output.

So a) why is the PS3 not detecting 6.1 LPCM from the receiver and b) why and how is it outputting 6.1 audio as 7.1?

EDIT: fixed the problem myself.

I checked the PS3 again and did a "Manual" setup for the sound instead, and there isn't even an option for 6.1 LPCM, just 5.1 and 7.1. I'm not sure if this is because the fat PS3 model isn't capable of 6.1 LPCM, or it simply doesn't think the 1019 is capable and doesn't show it. Does anyone else have a fat PS3 and the 1019 that can verify whether they have a 6.1 LPCM option?

Once you set it to Auto Surround you have to cycle through the different modes to pick the matrixed sound of your choice.

Hi all; I have a 5.1 surround setup in my living room and 2 speakers connected to an external 2 channel amp in my kitchen. I want to use these speakers as "Speaker B" audio.
Everything works as expected if I connect the two speakers directly to the surround back speaker terminals on the Pioneer receiver, but I get no signal from the surround back pre-outs to send to my 2 channel amp, which is what I need to do.
The pre-outs are at least partially functional, because they work as expected by mirroring the speaker terminals when the surround back setting is set to "Zone 2", but that doesn't help me any for my intended "Speaker B" configuration.

Page 69 of the user's manual indicates that I should get the same audio out of the surround back pre-outs as the surround back speaker terminals when "Speaker B" is selected (And of course "SP>B" or "SP>AB" are selected)

Has anyone here successfully (or unsuccessfully) connected active/powered speakers in a "Speaker B" configuration using the surround back pre-outs?

Any word on if this is a user's manual typo?

Chances that a firmware update addresses this?

Thanks in advance.....
post #4770 of 5121

I think the only way you can use them as pre-outs is if you use them in zone 2 mode. As you have discovered, in Speaker B mode, they are powered outs the same as all the other audio outs. I believe that is how it is intended to work and a firmware update is not going to change that.
