Transform your Device into a Powerful Remote Control
Communicating with the VSX-1122-k wirelessly through your home network is easy with Pioneer's iControlAV2012 app, downloadable at no charge through iTunes® and Google Play®, turning your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad device or select AndroidTM devices into a powerful remote control for your receiver. The all new iControlAV2012 is fully redesigned, incorporating everything from basic volume and input selection to advanced features like EQ adjustments and Internet Radio control. iControlAV2012 includes enhanced features like vertical and horizontal orientation and intuitive control of music from networked PCs as well as a super- cool finger EQ adjust screen; simply draw the EQ curve to your desired sound preference. New Sound Explorer gives you easy access to experiment with the many powerful sound enhancements the VSX-1122-k offers.
Fine-Tune Your Sound with Advanced MCACC - Ultimate Sound Control
Like a musical instrument, your home theater system needs to be tuned. Pioneer's Advanced Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides an optimized, multi-channel listening experience calibrated and customized specifically to your room by measuring every speaker's connection, and noting size and distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre.
Advanced Qdeo™ Video Processing. Picture Perfect Whatever the Source
Using Qdeo™ processing technology and Pioneer’s extensive video know-how makes viewing a truly immersive viewing experience. The VSX-1122-K provides video conversion from composite and component video to HDMI for a single-wire high-definition audio and video solution as well as up to 1080p video scaling for an exceptional picture regardless of the source, creating natural and noise-free video for maximum performance and flexibility.
Tweaks, Tips and Tricks
1. Firmware update can ONLY be done via USB, make sure to reformat to FAT32 even if it is already FAT32 (Mine was already formatted to FAT32, but wouldn't read, reformatted and it worked perfectly)
2. Enter your Pandora credentials through the OSD, not the AVControl2012 app.
3. Download latest firmware here Note: This firmware update cannot be performed via the Internet. It must be performed using a USB memory device.
4. Download manual here
5. EASY PANDORA ACCOUNT ACCESS:
This is the web server screen, the best configuration method so far for Pandora and it works perfectly. You just have to write the network address of the VSX-1122-k using your favorite internet browser from a PC, iPad, iPhone, etc... connected to the same home network.
I bought the VSX-1122-k after owning the VSX-816-k for about 6yrs., it was time to upgrade as I needed / wanted a receiver with HDMI.
With that said, I am very happy with my purchase and would love to hear from other owners.
