Has anyone here successfully connected their Xbox to this receiver in the following way:

Xbox >>>component cables>>>>>Pioneer 1022>>>>>>HDMI>>>>>>TV

I bought this receiver because of the upconversion feature but my Xbox 360 isn't displaying on the screen. The Wii displays correclty via component.
post #152 of 407
I was able to get the 360 to display by setting the AV component switch on the 360 to TV instead of HDTV. So now it looks like the resolution of the Wii, 480p. Bummer.

Edit: the 360 is now showing an HD resolution, how or why it started working I have no idea. I'm afraid to turn it off for fear it won't display correctly again.

I swapped out the cable box with no change, I then simply moved the HDMI cable from the SAT/CAB input to the DVD input and everything works fine, the tuner and BlueRay channels all work just fine. I think the channel is screwed up after less than 6 days of operation. Anybody have any suggestions to try and diagnos this better? Thanks -

Try to reset the unit, or even unplug from the power and re-plug and see how it is.

I have the exact same problem with my 522. I want to swap it with the 1022.

Did you guys figure out if resetting works or what is the fix?

I am having handshake issue when using XBMC with my receiver. The XBMC is running on a HTPC and connected to the receiver via HDMI, then from the receiver to the TV.

When I start to play a video on my XBMC. The receiver keeps playing audio but the video goes black for about 5 seconds. This happens after the video is finished and return to the UI of XBMC, too. Seems like the handshake issue to me. The weird part is that the resolution of the HTPC was never changed, why does the receiver needs to reestablish the connection?

Is there anyway this can be fixed? It's getting really annoying. I got it from NewEgg and it's really a headache to return the product to NewEgg.

I'm considering this cause of the price and also cause I have an AppleTV.


1) IPhone APP work good for turning on and off and setting input?
2) When powered up, is there a default input that is active?
3) TOSlink- does that work good for audio who source is an AppleTV?


Reviews and comments haven't been to inspiring.


Appreciate your response(s)

Been reading the reviews and it seems this product was rushed out the door and as a result isn't very good (price drop). Noticed Cruchfields stop carrying it which maybe is because of the problems. Does this make sense?

I found out that if I turn off Hardware Acceleration in xbmc, the screen doesn't go black when I am playing a mkv file and there is no handshake. I turned to "video converter" switch on and off in main menu for the input, it makes no difference. I suspect that if the video can successfully passthrough, the problem should be gone.

Somebody please help, this is getting really annoying... Thanks!

For those of you who have successfully updated the firmware, how long did it take? Mine's been updating for a while now, and I was just curious if it should take a few minutes or a few hours.

Also, if it is stuck in the update process, can I turn if off, or remove the usb drive without screwing it up? Thanks.

My first attempt took a very long time (and eventually didn't work at all), so I unplugged the USB and after that I had no sound at all. Even resetting the unit did not work. I had to unplug the unit from the power and after plugging back in everything was fine, but the firmware was the old one. Oddly enough, the upgrade attempt was done with a relatively newer generation 16gb flash drive.
I then tried the upgrade with a very, very old, 1gb drive and it worked fine. took about 5-7 minutes.

But I am having other issues with this unit and I think I am pretty much done with it (see next post).
post #160 of 407
I am at a point where I am raising a white flag.

As I reported before, I had issues with connecting to the network as well as updating the firmware. For some reason I could not update with a "newer" flash drive. A week later I found a very old 1gb drive and decided to give it a shot. Firmware update worked perfect. I received the unit with 1.050 and upgraded to 1.059.
With the new firmware, my network issues went away. All of a sudden I was able to connect any time without an issue. I was a pretty happy customer for the last two weeks.

Then this morning, I decided to finally check (and make sure) that I connect my iPod to the unit. Sure enough, with the supplied cable, all I see on the display is the super annoying PLEASE WAIT.
I am still waiting...
Unplugged, re-plugged, put the receiver in SBY mode, before and after plugging, unplugged the unit from power, turned the iPod on/off while plugged/unplugged....you name it. Nothing.
So I decided to check the Internet Radio again. Guess what - PLEASE WAIT...no connection, same as before the firmware upgrade and the issues that I had with it.

The only thing that works without an issue as the TV with SAT/CBLE mode. Thank God for that.

I am pretty much all done with this unit. I am sick and tired of 'fighting' with it. I bought it so it will work for me. I don't have the patience to unplug it, troubleshoot it, get upset. I am done. Luckily I purchased it from Newegg with Iron Egg return policy.

Would anyone have any pointers about getting Airplay to work? The Airplay icon is not appearing on my iPad2, Does this mean Airplay is not working on the VSX-1022?

Network is working fine (I can connect to the web console from a browser, Internet Radio works, Pandora, etc). I updated it with the latest firmware, as well.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I finally got a chance to play around with this yesterday (before the football games kicked in). I unplugged the analog CD and re-inserted the digital coax into the unit. I could see the digital indication on the CD input but I couldn't hear anything. Checked and rechecked all of the connections (what joy). I turned the volume down then up. I finally went to my PC and turned the volume all the way to maximum on the Squeezebox server application. Success I finally hear sound coming from the receiver. But boy not really sure why a digital signal needs to have the volume turned all the way up on the application and the volume on the receiver nearly maxed out in order to hear any output. I worry that when I switch back the volume will be too loud for the other inputs and potentially blow a speaker. The coax cable is brand new (switched from a 3 footer to a 6 footer when I wired it up).

So bottom-line I am getting the Duet receiver to output a digital signal to the Pioneer VSX-1022-k receiver and i can listen to my ripped CDs (in flac no less). I am going to try and use the optical output on the Sony CD changer into the TV input to test whether I can have both digital inputs plugged in at the same time.

Later in the week I hope to be able to run some new speaker wire and set this up down in the basement and relocate the speaker selection device to the kitchen and run all the speakers to that location. Then hopefully, I will be able to remotely switch speaker zones with the VSX app. If not I will have to manually change it while watching TV.

I sometimes find that the order that my devices reconnect to the network matters. I don't have an iPad but I am using an Ipod touch to control and use the Airplay function. I often have to start the receiver first (using the Pioneer Control App) before the the Airplay will show up on the iTunes or the iPod touch (if I am reconnecting the touch to the network; if it has been sleeping but on the network this doesn't seem to be a problem). Check that you have the unit on Power Standby as well (you probably do). After the firmware upgrade and the receiver reset, the Power Standby was set to OFF by default and I was having issues with Airplay, once I set it to ON, I was again able to have Airplay start (from my PC's iTunes program) the receiver and begin playing music.

I have only used Airplay for music at this point though.

Thank you for the reply. I have set the "network standby" to "ON" (didn't set power standby, but I think that is the same thing?).

I think I am misunderstanding the use of Airplay with the receiver. Does it have to be in an "off" state to work? If so, that is probably my problem. I thought it had to be powered on.

You are correct that the Network Standby should be to "ON" and that will allow Airplay or other devices (like the ControlAV App) to "Power On" (actually the unit is not "OFF" under Network Standby but it is drawing minimal amount of power). I was just pointing out that my reset changed the state of this unit to full OFF. In order for Airplay to work the unit needs either to be in Power "ON" state or Network Standby "ON" state to operate.

It sounds like you have that all covered. Can you find your unit using iTunes? Is that Airplay icon available and can you see your receiver? I assume you've confirmed that both your iPad and the VSX-1022-K are on the same network (I've had issues in the past where my wireless devices ended up not showing up on my network becasue of some Windows Group settings but I didn't have that issue here since my VSX is wired into the ethernet ).

Are there any other Airplay devices on your network? Can the iPad see those devices?

No, iTunes cannot see it. No Airplay icons showing up, and I also restarted my iPad2 to see if that would bring it up. No joy on that.

I don't have any other Airplay devices. And you are correct that everything is on the same network (I also updated the firmware on the router, as well). I can hit the reciever via web browser, and iControl on the iPad works, as well.

I really appreciate your help! Maybe over time, it'll just pop up by itself.

For the people having trouble updating their firmware: Your USB stick or drive has to be formatted with the FAT32 file system. Most smaller USB sticks are formatted this way by default, but many people change them to NTFS so they can handle larger files. I tried to update the firmware with several NTFS formatted USB drives and kept getting the "File Not Found" error. So I reformatted to FAT32 and it worked instantly.

Updating the firmware only took about 1-2 minutes as well. No way it should be taking 45 minutes like some above have reported.
post #168 of 407
Airplay icon now shows up on my devices. The issue was the receiver. Essentially, I had to reboot it. I unplugged it for 30 seconds, and plugged it back in. Voila! Airplay icon shows up on my iPad.

Hopefully this helps someone else out. Thanks to anjenaire for trying to help, too.

I bought my 1022 about a week ago to replace a 4 year old Yamaha RX-V663, which had two, count 'em, two hdmi inputs . This all started because I got an Apple TV for Xmas so I could stream Netflicks and there wasn't a hdmi connection open for it. I was attracted to the 1022 because of its many hdmi inputs and reasonable price. It was less than the Yamaha was 4 years ago.

I don't know if I'd have bought it if I had read this forum first, but I didn't. I had no issues setting up this receiver and it sounds great, better than the Yamaha. I use the Apple TV to do all my network and music interactions, so that wasn't an issue. I control everything with a 4 year old Harmony Remote and I'm happy as I could be.

Which version of Apple TV do you have? What resolution does the Apple TV output for you?
I have had the 1022K for about a week now, and I am struggling with getting a video signal from an Apple TV 3 to display through the receiver. It works every so often (maybe 5% of the time) but then loses video again after the Apple TV goes to sleep. I have tried different resolutions from the ATV with no success.
I was ready to return to Newegg yesterday when I realized they charge a 15% restocking fee. Should have read the fine print.
post #171 of 407
I have the third generation Apple TV. Video quality is excellent, noticeably better than that coming from my cable box. Next time I watch a movie, I'll try to determine the resolution.

I have had no issues with the video signal from the ATV. Before I bought the 1022, I ran the hdmi cable straight to the TV and an optical cable to my old ARV. That worked OK, except I had to switch the AVR audio select to "Coax/Optical" everytime. You might try that setup (hdmi to TV/optical to 1022) to determine if it's the 1022 that is having a problem or the ATV. Once I got the 1022, I ran the hdmi straight from the ATV to the "video" hdmi input on the 1022. Works great.

As far as issues with the ATV going to sleep, I've not had a problem. Sleep mode is set to "1 hour".

BTW, if anyone reading is on the fence about buying the VSX-1022-K, Amazon recently lowered the price by $10 to $239.99. Best Buy will match this (their price is a whopping $449) if you don't want to worry about shipping/damage from Amazon.
post #173 of 407
So I just picked this receiver up last night thanks to the newegg deal and Best Buy price matching. I had originally gone looking at the Harmon Kardon that was onsale, but price match and feature set found this to be a better deal. Granted I spent all of 4 hours hooking up and configuring, I have a few questions.

FWIW, my setup is the NEW Pioneer 1022k, with 2 Infinity Studio Monitor sm255's up front, with a Bose VCS10 center channel, and some el cheapo rear surround speakers, making it a 5 speaker setup. (no sub, though the sm255's handle that QUITE well)

1) with my previous setup, which had a Sony AV/VHS receiver, circa 1998, I seemed to be able to produce a deeper bass/sound from the studio monitors than I have yet to get with the Pioneer. Am I missing a menu or setting, or is this a function of technology giving us better overall sound?

2) When switching between devices, say the Cable, the DVD and the tuner, does the Pioneer retain amp/EQ settings for EACH device, or is it populated across the devices. In other words, if I am watching a movie in "ACTION" preset via DVD, then flip to Cable for the news, does the receiver switch to the last EQ setting I had for "Cable", or is Cable now broadcasting the news in "action"?

3) ...

that's it for now, I believe I have found the issue with the Pandora working so will update firmware this evening and see if that helps.

So far for owning it ~24 hours and using it ~6, I am pleased thus far, aside from tweaking the sound output.

Hello there.

I'm looking for a receiver to replace my partly faulty Denon 1610 (HDMI is not working anymore). I was pleased with it's sound quality, so I'm not looking for anything much better than it.

What I really want is sound quality. I don't care about video upconverting or internet features, since I'll have devices responsible for those. I just want good 5.1 sound (at least on par with the Denon 1610), at least 4 HDMI ports, and "auto configuration" (MCACC, Audyssey, etc.) is appreciated. I also need a realiable hardware (not thinking about getting a Onkyo because I read about it's build quality issues), because I live in Brazil and warranty for receivers here do not exist.

I was thinking about the Pioneer VSX-1022-K, but I have read that it's sound quality is not good, so I'm considering the 1122-K. But I don't want to spend the extra $$$ if it is not to get better sound quality. I guess I could use the Zone 2 feature, but that's not required. So, should I go with the 1022-K, or it is better to go with the 1122-K?

I chose Pioneer because I always had the feeling they make great hardware. But what do you people have to say about it?

I'm posting this on the 1122-K thread too.
post #177 of 407
Hi.

I am using a WNCE2001 to connect to my home wireless router, which is Verizon. Seems like the Pioneer 1022-k is on the network as its IP address shows up on the main router as well as on the receiver's network settings. I am able to use Air Play, Internet Radio and Pandora. However, I would love to be able to access my PC (connected to router via ethernet) and the music library on it (itunes and mp3). When I go to the receiver's Network input and choose media server, it goes into a Please Wait status and stays there. My media libraries on the PC are all open for sharing.

Why does the receiver not "see" the PC? Am I missing any steps? Thanks much for the help. This is frustrating me to no end.
post #178 of 407
Mrangus

Thanks for sharing. May I ask how you set up your PC connection. I am connected on my home network and can do Internet Radio, Pandora and Air Play. Have not tried ControlApp yet. But I cannot access my itunes library or any other music library on my PC from the 1022. Not sure what I am missing as the network is recognizing the pioneer IP address and I have opened up my media folders for sharing. Thanks.
post #179 of 407
sanjay102,

Sorry, I have no experience connecting any of the Apple products except for an iPod. In Windows, you need to install the latest version of Windows Media Player. This will create a "media device" in the network. All files accessible by the Windows Media Player will show up on the VSX-1022. Check your anti-virus software. I had to configure my Kaspersky Anti Virus to allow DNS (I think) for local networks. Since I didn't know what I am doing, I looked at all the things that were being blocked b Kaspersky and enabled them one by one until I had network access for the VSX-1022. FYI, my router was assigning an IP address to the VSX-1022 but Kaspersky was blocking it from communicating on the network.

I'm getting ready to return my Sony DH-520 and thinking that I will pick this Pioneer vsx-1022 k in its place. I was hoping that 1 of the owners of this could let me know if the receiver stays in the last input mode when it is turned off and back on again.

It seems silly...but the Sony defaults to TV on every shutdown/restart forcing me to manually change the input back to Sat/Cable to watch Direct TV. It's just extremely annoying and not something I'm willing to do every time I turn on the TV.

I'm sure someone here has a cable box/direct TV box hooked up to the receiver. Does it stay in Sat/Cable (or whatever the pioneer equivalent setting is) when you turn it off and back on again?
