"unwanted noise" = "dts bomb" (or something similar)?

or something less dire than that?
post #92 of 2663
Thanks tcfake613, that's one we're really curious about so let me know what you find.

Can anyone else speak to whether the 1021 will pass audio and video to the TV if the receiver is turned off? (routing all a/v signals into the receiver with one HDMI output cable to TV).

Something I can't find any mention of but would like to get one asap if it's not worth waiting for the 1121...

Thanks

Chris, ETA on the 1121?
post #95 of 2663
Thanks Chris! Couldn't find any mention of that...

They are definitely selling them at Best Buy - just picked one up and it didn't cost $10k. Got a 12% reward zone discount emailed today so it was well under MSRP.

Chris,

How does the standby pass thru work? I can do it with the power on, but once I power off no sound no picture.

I can leave power on and dim the display so it looks like it's off, however I don't believe this is "Standby Pass Thru".

Thanks

The manual (p 43) says, "It is possible to transfer signals from an HDMI connected player to the TV when this receiver's power is on standby as long as Control [with HDMI] is ON." I was not able to get it to work though. I tried it with Control On and a few other different HDMI setup options. It may be that the source and display devices must also support Control with HDMI. I'm sure my display device (Sanyo PLV-Z4) does not and my source device (PS3) may not either.

We are updating the firmware of models that are currently at retailers. If you have already purchased a VSX-1021, we ask you to update the firmware using the internet update feature (should be up soon), download the new firmware and update via USB (up now), or call Pioneer Customer Service at 800-421-1404 and request an update kit (USB flash drive with the new firmware, should be available on Monday) to be sent to you at no cost.

Here is a link to the product page where the firmware can be downloaded.

Once again, there is no product recall and no safety concern.


Thanks,

Thanks Chris. Just did the update. Worked fine... although you must use the direct zip link posted a few posts above. I was in a 7.1 channel sorround mode so I probably didn't need it, but I'm picky that way. Last night watched Star Trek with this thing after calibrating and I must say, the sound is outstanding.

Everything works great except I cannot get HDMI pass-thru to work... I'm assuming because my 52" Samsung does not support HDMI control... still messing with it though.

I just checked Amazon it looks like this is pushed back to April 29th now no longer the 15th.

Does the 1020-k have this same pass through feature?

Chris Walker,

Is this related to DTS-Master Audio tracks?

Any plans to update the SC-09TX and/or BD players for a similar problem with DTS-Master Audio and certain titles, like Bridge Over River Kwai?

Bridge has random, loud pops that are not time stamped or not repeatable on playing back the same time frames. They are loud enough to cause concern over the health of the speakers. They do not go away either bitstreaming or player decoding to PCM.

There are owners of various Pioneer BD players and receivers with this problem with Bridge.

Sorry to bring this up in this thread but it seems like it could be the same problem.

Appreciate you checking into this & posting a reply.
Thanks!

How does this new 1021 compare to last year's 1120?

Power wise, the 1021 is a big step up from the 1020 and now on par with the 1120. Video processing is not as good and it lacks pre-outs. 1120 has thx listening modes.
post #107 of 2663
Thanks for the info. I think I'll wait to see the 1120 update.

Anyone figure out how to get ready of the demo text scrolling on the display?

It's in the instructions on page 6, but I had to reread the instructions like 5 times to understand it. The manual is bad.

Has anybody got video out of their iPhone using the supplied cable?

The supplied cable supposedly does this (albeit at poor quality). But it doesn't work with my iPhone 3GS.

I know that iPhone video out requires a special cable (where Apple takes a vig on the price -- making them more expensive). iPod video out cables don't require paying the Apple tax.

Is it possible Pioneer included the cheaper cable? If that is so, they kind of misrepresented the Receiver's capabilities in their marketing materials.

But I would love to hear from Chris...hopefully I'm just making some other silly mistake.

I have gotten video with my wife's iphone 3gs and 4g.

In order to connect to my router, wireless, can I use a Linksys WET610N Wireless-N Ethernet Router, or do I HAVE to purchase the AS-WL300 from Pioneer? Seems I can't find any info on the WL300... is it available anywhere?

I had the same problem. I had to go to network setup - IP Address Proxy and save before the firmware update would work.

Wow. Maybe something is wrong with my phone. I just tried an iPod and it worked like a charm.

Thanks.

Hi,

It is not related to anything with DTS (It is a very obscure issue) I will pick up Bridge and Tangled and see if I can duplicate the problem.

I wont be back in the office till Wednesday so please give me a couple of days..

Thanks,

That wireless bridge should work fine. The receiver will see it as a wired connection. We will have the as-wl300 on the website next week. We just got them in our warehouse. Unfortunately it is more expensive than I would have liked ($149).

My Amazon order was delayed to May 6th so I gave up and canceled the order and bought it at Best Buy today. They did not have a hold on them or any note about the receiver in their system.

I tried to buy one at Best Buy but 2 stores said there was a hold on it in their system (even though their website indicates both these stores have them in stock). I guess they had them, but couldn't sell me one.
