Pioneer VSX 920/1020 Help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just checking if anyone has had similar problems and overcome them.

I have been trying to gain basic functionality of my IQ2 Foxtel box (Pace TDC851NF) through the Pioneer remote using codes. I got the Samsung TV controls all working and was able to turn off the receiver and TV at once using the multi operation feature. I realise I won't be able to get proper use of Foxtel through the Pioneer remote but I would like to be able to turn it on and off with the multi operation macro. Has anyone got the Pioneer remote to recognise their Foxtel box?

Also, when it is in stereo mode it does not utilise the sub woofer. I found this post which may help in the setup. In stereo, I am playing MP3's via HDMI from my Boxee. When I run 5.1 movies on my Boxee then the sub works fine.

Can't help with the remote issue, but regarding the stereo music issue, make sure ALL your speakers are set to SMALL with a minimum of 80hz crossover so all frequencies below 80hz get passed to the sub.

plIImode for stereo sources for conversion mixing to 5.1


as foor foxtel support via tv/avr remotes is going to be hit and miss for working format best to use foxtel remote for function use..

most avr universal remotes will work with dvd/brd players in brand and out brand..

sumsung are great for lcd/plasma/led tv's though when it comes to remotes and other gear that aren't samsung derived can have unusual side effects in controls..


if you want best performance out of your avr's remote stick to pioneer gear where possible..

also note hdmi cec may or may not work as intended pending on the hdmi variant within stu..

jdsmoothie: Even if my fronts are large speakers and I want them to take some of the bass?

mystic: I would prefer to not convert stereo to 5.1 if I can avoid it. Could you elaborate on the use of plIImode?

Apologies for not listening to good advice.
Switched to all small speakers and the sub is kicking.
Thanks.

Any tips as to what to set the "Cut Off Frequency" to on the back of the sub? It ranges from 40Hz - 150Hz. Phase is at 0.

plII introduces 2 channel into 5.1 channel, for tv you'll need to use it because you'll cutting back and forth between 2channel and 5.1 and that can lag to the point of being annoying to listen too

Set it to 150hz and phase = 0.
