I did the factory reset trick stated earlier and was able to 'fix' the problem for now that I just need to turn off the receiver and turn it on again to get the video signal output from HDMI. it's better than unplugging the AC.
But still... it's very bad quality control for major brand like Pioneer!
Ok, so i got my receiver back from the shop after taking it in. They replaced the main board
and the hdmi board
. Now the receiver identifies itself as the vsx-52. I am happy to report that all of my problems are now fixed. The receiver turns all the way off, and on each time perfectly without me having to get up each time and physically unplug the unit for a video signal to pass through. It has only been a week, and I am still carefully monitoring the situation, but so far so good.
As a bonus, the usb keyboard function has been restored to my avr so i can just type in names/passwords for internet radio rather than using the remote control. If the avr continues its course of actually working the way its supposed to, i will be more than happy with this receiver.
I will report back at a later date for updates.
