I'll have to see
thanks

At least contact Pioneer Tech Support and tell them what has happened and see what they can offer. You got nothing to lose. Also, if authorized pioneer is that far away, maybe try to find unauthorized shop closer that will confirm what you suspect.

i have a question about the EQ settings. where is a good place to start...I know look at page 84 in the manual, but just a lil over whelming i guess. is there meters need to adjust the EQ, something i need to listen for, etc.....just lost when it comes to this. what is the x-curve adjustment?

The reason I am asking is cuz I have had the receiver for over 2yrs and had a cheaper Yamaha prior and just seems like the Yamaha sounded better plus the output watts of the Yamaha were less and sounds louder then this Pioneer

thanks,
Jeff

You could get a TON of answers to this question. EQ settings vary depending on how you like things to sound and room dynamics could effect tones also.
When you go into MCACC setup and adjust the EQ it will give you test tones. You cant actually listen to a movie or music to adjust. (not that I know of anyway)
I adjusted mine more towards music than movie's so I usually drop the midrange down a few db's. Lows & highs up a few db's..

You'll prob just have to experiment.

so there is no "set standard" for setting the EQ? also i can watch a movie and go back to adjust my settings? If so there is a curtain DVD, Blu Ray, Movie to listen to and adjust?

Thanks for your input.

I don't think there any presets available with this AVR.
Yes, You could watch something then go back and change settings again.
30hz to 250hz give you more bass. 4khz to 16khz give you more highs.
Everything else is just midrange.
Listen to something and figure out what you want to hear more of... highs, lows etc..

it's all your preference. it's just like adjusting bass & treble on your car stereo..just with a lot more knobs.
try adding 3dbs 30-120hz & add 3dbs to 4 &8khz and see how you like it.

There's a simpler way of adjusting tone without using the EQ. (I almost forgot)
You can press the audio parameter button on the remote to improve sound. press it and press the wheel down to scroll thru the choices.
This can be done while playing tv or music.
I turn on these settings:
Dialog, EQ, tone, sound retrieval, loudness.
Once you turn on tone you can adjust the amound of bass & treble there. Much easier than EQ.

Hi eurovw89, press the "Receiver" button first then "Parameter".

You got me there? IIs the switch on your remote set to 'main' & not 'zone 2' ?
Did you ever go thru the MCACC setup process?
post #4964 of 5121
That is because some of the audio parameters are only available depending on the signal source/mode/etc (see pg 64 of User Manual).

A good place to start with the eq settings is by running a full MCACC. The program will set each level in the eq according to the sound received at the mic and adjust accordingly.

After MCACC does its thing, you can go back into the eq and tweak as desired. I, for instance, went back in and where MCACC made drastic changes to a certain eq (i.e., more than +/- 3 db) I shaved a db or two off (but no more than 2 db) towards neutral/zero.

Best bet is to check out the MCACC thread http://www.avsforum.com/t/1112470/official-pioneer-mcacc-thread which contains a nice step by step on how to get the best results from MCACC.

I have this tuner and tried to connect my ps3 through HDMI and i get sound but no picture.

I have a HDMI cable connected from my TV in going to the tuners HDMI OUT (assignable 1-3).

I have my PVR/cable box connected by component cables to assignable pr IN 1 & Red/White cables plugged into TV/SAT IN

I have my DVD/VCR player connected by component cables to assignable pr IN 2 & Optical assignable IN 2.

and have my PS3 connected to HDMI IN 1.
--> So when i switch the tuner setting over to PS3 i can get sound, but no picture while both my TV and DVD/VCR combo works when i switch the tuner input over to TV pr DVD.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hi nlnl09, try switching the PS3 to other HDMI port on the receiver. Or on the PS3 try turning off "Deep Color/Colour Output (HDMI)" found under Display Settings.
post #4967 of 5121
Hey i have tried all three ports, only one of the three gives audio. I guess i should try to connect the PS3 and change the settings on another tv for the deep colour then move it back to the TV through the tuner?

Take a look at this post:

Guys,

I was playing around and trying to get Pictures to display on my TV using a USB drive plugged into the USB Port. Everything loaded fine, but the pictures are very red, just like the default Red Menu on the 1019. Is there a way to get the pictures to be normal looking? The pictures are in a jpg format and they look great on my computer.

My TV is the Pioneer KPR-600M

Thanks

Anyone ever go through this?
Thanks
post #4974 of 5121
I just found out that the on screen Menu should not be red, but should be Silver - Black...Wow...It's been Red since I bought it back in 2008.

Could someone tell me what is the problem then?

Thanks

How is it connected to your TV? Component? HDMI?
Maybe it's the input of your tv thats not working correctly..
Do you run tv/video thru the AVR? It's not red?

Connected thru HDMI

I run TV/Video thru my AVR into my KPR-600M Kuro with no problem.

Everything else works great...Cable TV HD, Blue Ray etc...No Red...No Problems

I thought the Red was the default color for the menu until I tried the Photo slideshow using a USB Drive and the Red was washing out the photos and as well as the entire screen around the photos.

Thanks.

My theory kind of went out the window as soon as you said your video looks fine.
So it's sending the video thru without artifacts (red) but everything generated by the AVR is red.
Don't know, Sorry. Maybe the others here that know far more than I do can help..

Sorry it has taken so long to respond. So with that EQ, which only has one set of RCA inputs and one set of outputs, are you planning on using a switch to connect all of your components to the EQ, then connect the EQ to the receiver? You are aware that the receiver has a 9-band eq built in, right?

Yeah, the OSD should look like this:



I'm not sure why the red tint is happening for you. I had experienced this way back early on when I first got my AVR, and I believe it would happen when switching from one source to another, or something like that. You can try and reset the AVR to factory defaults and see if that takes care of it or try connecting the AVR to the TV using another type of cable (i.e., component, etc.) just as a test. Lastly, you can try to update the firmware, which is floating around in here somewhere. Or just live with a red OSD smile.gif
post #4979 of 5121
I experimented and switched to INPUT 6 on my Kuro and the Menu looked fine and so did the Photo Slideshow, just like it should...But for some reason,on my default INPUT 5, it causes a red tint on the menu and trying to look at photos is bad...Guess I'll just keep looking at my photo on my computer.

Any guesses as to why this is happening?

Thanks
post #4980 of 5121
So, if it works on the other hdmi input on the monitor, then I suspect there may be a problem with Input 5. At least you have one functional HDMI input on that 60-in monitor smile.gif
