I posted earlier that I connected my Gateway Computer with Blu-Ray to my 1020, I used a DVI (from Computer) to HDMI 1 Pioneer 1020.
I had at the time used for audio, the Mini Stereo plug at Computer to RCA inputs at 1020 going into the Video Input.
I was originally thinking of replacing my Video Card with one that had a HDMI output with Audio and then run HDMI cable from my computer to the 1020.
That was going to be expensive and I then read that DVI and HDMI at least Video wise were the same quality.
After further reading here at AVS I decided to try the very quick and inexpensive Toslink Optical Cable Route for my Audio from Computer to the 1020, my mother board supports up to 7.1 audio.
I purchased a 35 foot Toslink cable from Monoprice, around $6.00http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
and connected it from my Gateway Computers SPDIF Optic Toslink Out to the 1020's Optic input 1, then just added Optic 1 to the HDMI 1 input.
It has really worked great so far, when playing a Blu-Ray I will see DTS on the Pioneer and the Sound and Surround is great.
I just thought that I would throw that out for others looking to connect their computer to the 1020.
My other components are all connected to the 1020 via HDMI.
I renamed HDMI 1 to "Gateway" HDMI 2 to "TWC - Cable" and HDMI 3 to "Panny DVD"
I like using the "Input Select" with the arrows Left and Right to just toggle back and forth through my HDMI Inputs, it is a quick way to go back and forth from my Cable to Computer.
Finally, just let me say that after two weeks, I am really really happy with the Pioneer VSX1020K! It does all that I need it to do and Sounds Great!
I would like the Onkyo feature that allows real time setting adjustments with the GUI layered over the video, but that is really an initial gimmick, because let's be honest here, after the initial setup and tweaking, I will never or very rarely go into the Setup procedure section again.
It's not a feature that you can or need to enjoy on any regular basis!
Once the unit is set, fo-get-a-bout it and just Enjoy! LOL!
Everyone have a Great Day or Evening as the case may be!
