The TV amps are 18W/Ch (the 500M amp is only 9W/Ch). Beyond that speakers are speakers. I assume you mean 141 speakers since there are no 101 speakers.

Like the 101, 141s do not have audio amps or speakers

Of course that should have been 111.
post #6574 of 6954
Yes you are all right. I meant the 111.

So based on your response I should be fine? I would be setting the crossover at 80Hz.

I noticed that the KuroControl download has gone missing. I don't know if that's because of the site upgrade or something else.

"Beyond that, speakers are speakers" ....

This is so not true...speakers are as different as night & day in most cases ...

I will say that I have the Pioneer Speakers hooked up to my KRP-500M and they suffice as TV Speakers ... but they are not highly accurate nor do they produce audiophile quality sound nor are they Home Theater Speakers by any means. However, they are OK for basic TV Viewing. I sue them because they are the simplest and cleanest looking solution for my Master Bedroom TV.

I also have a pair of speakers for my Pioneer KRP-600M but I do not use them. I have that connected as a Home Theater using Gallo Speakers. More than a night & day difference there.

Well this thread is about displays and the OP was about using similar speakers for similar purposes so I didn't think I needed to qualify that situation speciic comment with the observation that Pioneers speakers don't really compare to Wisdom or Moon or Focal or ..., or even say "as far as casual display mounted speakers go well ... speakers are speakers".

I'm sorry if there was any confusion.

Can someone offer some help on this weird problem I'm having please?

My krp 500m picture keeps shifting after a couple of minutes of viewing and as soon as I press the menu button and the menu comes up, it shifts back to its original position with the boxers perfectly aligned..what is going on?! Thanks!

That is the pixel shifting technology (orbiter). You can go into the menu and turn orbiter off if you do not like this, however it does help prevent burn-in

Recently moved and noticed this line on my 500m tonight. It's a green line so I'm assuming something is wrong with the red and blue sub-pixels or whatever controls them. Is this something that can be fixed by internal electronics or is it the panel? The line runs from the top of the panel to the middle of the panel, bottom half below the line is fine. (Sorry, pic is sideways.)

post #6583 of 6954
did this line just appear after you moved the panel? if so, then maybe a ribbon cable or board on the back of the panel came loose when in transit.
post #6584 of 6954
Panel was not moved , Line just showed up one day , held onto the panel for over 1 year hoping it would correct itself , had to exchange it before my Factory warr ran out , everyone I talked to stated there is no fix for this , just replace the panel.

Sorry I dont have good news

I was afraid it was a panel issue. Yes, it only appeared after moving. I have not had a tech out yet, but I'm sure you're correct. I am waiting to hear back on next steps from moving company about insurance coverage etc. This will be interesting...

A year later, but I finally got this done. Basically, my HDMI port had fried out. Teetering on the edge of warranty ending, I opted to have the board replaced under warranty. The warranty company and local Pioneer repairman were great to deal with. Ordered the replacement part over the phone when I explained the problem, came out to my house a week later and installed it in less than 30 minutes. No problems with it and now, both my HDMI inputs are working. Bad news is that I seem to have lost my ISF-Day/Night calibration modes that were done by D-Nice @ 2 years ago when I had him calibrate my set. Any way to get them "back", or since the board was completely replaced, am I looking at a re-calibration ? Right off the bat, I realized how much I missed the ISF-Day/Night settings......

Thanks in advance.
post #6587 of 6954
if it's been two years, it may be a good time to do/have another calibration smile.gif

on board swaps, many times a reset will be done..

btw, D-Nice's new contact info is:

It's been long enough to get a new calibration. Then you can save them (see the FAQ) should you have another issue in the future.

Can the Ethernet network interface for the KRP-500m be used for anything other than viewing & changing settings, and sending e-mail alerts?

I know about KuroReader, KuroControl, and the built-in Web Control System.

Can you input video via the Ethernet network interface (either from a computer on the same network, or from any Internet services)? (I assume that you can't, but figured I'd check anyway)

Thanks!

No other uses have been reported or are documented.

Hi has anybody noticed a high frequency whine on there krp kuro its even noticable in standby has anybody had this problem and got a solution thanks.
post #6592 of 6954
Since the Pio Kuro's have been out for a few years now are there any reports from Kuro owners reporting anything negative about the tv with reliability problems, IR, burn in? I own a Pioneer Elite Kuro PRO-151FD so I was just wondering if I might have missed something i need to know about my tv. I haven't been reading about electronics for over a year so I been out of the loop on electronics.

Is D-Nice back to doing calibrations now? Heard he was taking some time off.

Kind of miss hearing his input on this forum.
post #6594 of 6954
I have seen very few reports or Burn in , There are reports of a red tint as the PDP ages due to improper set up(on some not all) from the factory , In general the PQ gets better with age .

Has anyone seen an issue similar to this:



This is on my PDP-5010FD.

I'm getting green speckles on light blue. I also occasionally see yellow speckles on white and black speckles on dark blue. Kinda sounds like an issue with the colour blue in general but whether it's a driver, power supply or panel issue, I'm not knowledgable enough to know.

I've contacted a local tech but I thought I'd ask here in case someone's familiar with this type of problem.

Cheers.

Could it be an issue with the HDMI cable? Have you tried switching out the HDMI cable with a new one to see?

Yes, I've tried different cables, different devices and different inputs... all combinations can produce the problem.

Will running the video pattern option on a KRP600m eventually remove burn in from extensive PC use.
This panel didnt have orbitor 1 or 2 on .I am not the one who abused this panel.
post #6600 of 6954
Reduce it, yes, not eliminate or remove.
