Pioneer vsx-919ah Help how do i change the default input (tv/sat)??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hi everybody i have been trying like crazy to change the default setting of tv/sat on my pioneer vsx 919. i have tried going into the input setup and selecting on and off on the input skip category, to no avail.

every time i turn on my tv which is connected to the receiver by hdmi, it automatically switches back to tv/sat and i have to manually press the dvr button for it to show my cable box.

with out the tv on, the receiver stays on the last input it was left on, but the second i turn on the tv it goes back to the default tv/sat and its annoying to constantly switch back and forth between inputs.

i have checked the manual a hundred times and there is nothing that says "permanently change your default input source"

my question is how do i change it, so that every time no matter what the receiver stays on DVR?

Have you tried using a different input on the TV... Are you able to rename the TV/Sat input to DVR and swap out the inputs at the back

Pioneer calls HDMI control, Kuro Link. Page 60 in your VSX 919 manual. What brand TV do you have? Make sure the HDMI control is turned off there too. I hope this works for you. Here's a link to the manual in case you need it.

This has also bugged me for years and i finally updated my harmony 1100 remote and I have managed to fix it on my pioneer kuro php LX6090h. This is what I did if it helps anyone.

Got to home/menu
Set up
Option
HDMI Control setting
Switch hold sound status to off

This stopped it always sending my onkyo amp into its default TV/CD setting.

Hope it works for you!
