Has anybody found a code that works with Directv Receiver HR23/700?
Thanks!
post #62 of 407
my Evo app has the correct IP address for the vsx 1022 but on main screen it says-

IP adress
????

network error
please check your product

connection status
AVR:ERROR
BDP:----
(Error code:B27102)

I'm still determined to get it to work :/ I should have spent the extra $100, but oh well.

I'm also an experienced Pioneer owner for years also. I stated in my previous posts this is my 5th or 6th Pioneer receiver and never had any issues with any of them until this one. In case you didnt see my other posts explaining my problem I am getting a loud "pop", or a second of loud white noise whenever I change channels on my Tivo. This is a known issue between Tivos and some receivers, but like I said I have never had this problem before with any other Pioneer receivers I have owned. Any input is appreciated.

@nwaudio: I had the same problem. Apparently there are multiple Pioneer control apps. I originally downloaded "iControlAV2" but that app isn;t compatible with the 1022. You need the "Pioneer Control App" Works like a charm.

Thanks Bret. Going to try that app. Also is the M3 in your name because you own a BMW M3?

I used to own an M3, then I got married.rolleyes.gif

I also cannot get mine to connect to the Internet. I have tried everything that I know to do. AirPlay does not work and none of the network options work either. I tried to do the update but while in net radio nothing happens. Tried pushing home menu but nothing happens. Also another weird issue is when I change channels on the dish the tv goes black and says no input. Power off and back on and works great until you change the channel again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@BretM3. Cool, I almost bought a E36m3. But purchased a 87is with a lot of upgrades.... smile.gif

Overall not super impressed with the unit, UI from 1988, network function run like on dial up at best,AirPlay is not stable...I can't really speak for the sound yet because the sub is missing...

Hey fellas! Some really informative posts in this thread. Found the answer to my (and everyone else's) Pandora issue! Thank you! But I haven't seen anything about an Airplay issue I am having except for 4Lester saying "Airplay is not stable" For me, Airplay starts up just fine, show the "Successfully connected to network" message, but then after about 2 seconds the music just stops! Hitting pause and starting back up doesn't work. Only way to try it out again is switch inputs on the receiver and try airplay again...only the same thing happens. Two seconds of play and then stop.

Anyone else seeing anything like this? All other network functions work fine...internet radio, check...DNLa, check...pandora, used to work until they changed their security...just Airplay, broken?!?! Lemme know what you guys think, thanks!

Any hints or clues on how to get the netwrok radio feature working? All the stations sound like static. Network connection is good. I can get to the web page for the receiver.
post #71 of 407
This model is currently on sale for $239.99 + $5 shipping over at tech.woot.com. Trying to decide if I should just go ahead and order it or pick up the Onkyo TX-NR515 for $330 at my local AV boutique store which is also including a 3 year warranty... My speakers are all Pio-Elite's so I'm leaning towards this unit, but I'm trying to determine if spending an additional $85 is justifiable for the Onkyo's features. Arrrgh. Guess I'll post my own thread to get opinions.
post #72 of 407
I pulled the trigger on the woot deal. Merry Christmas to me. Now of course I am having buyer's remorse and not sure the unit will perform admirably (otherwise why on woot?). To those that own one of these pieces of kit, can you switch between A zone to B zone (stereo speakers) via the network interface or the iOS controller app? What I want to do is replace two receivers (1 music only there other home theater) with this one. While I suspect this unit doesn't have true two zone feature, I can live with what I think it does have if I can remotely switch the zones (the HT receiver is in the basement and that is where I would place this unit and either leave the music one in place to serve as a back up or eventually sell it off altogether. I plan to have the Zone "B" feeding to a speaker switch that has "A" & "B" inputs so those would be separated into the new receiver and the existing music receiver. Trying to keep this not too complicated for the family but if someone is watching a movie in the basement and I want to listen to music on the back deck, I think the existing receiver as a back-up would suffice).

I owned this unit for approximately 8 hours. It works excellent for movies. The sound is good, and the calibration is pretty decent. However, my wife and I love Pandora and this unit is horrible with Pandora. I liked the phone app, which was a little difficult to set up due to not recognizing the AVR right away. The other issue was with Pandora you will get Stereo sound, which is fine, but it doesn't let you use the sub. like my current AVR does.

For $250 it isn't a bad AVR.
post #74 of 407
I currently have a sub in my living room but not on any of the other zones. I find I am not in there that often to make it worth worrying about. (I end up either in the kitchen zone or out on the deck in decent weather and the Bose speakers do a decent job in stereo mode. Typical older home with lots of spaces chopped up so the listening zones are small in total square footage. I do listen to a fair amount of internet radio (although not too much Pandora) so I am wondering how well it plays the vtuner stuff. I currently have a Logitech Duet system set up and frankly I am getting tired of the network drop outs and then the waiting while I get everything to see all the addresses at once. Of course I am still running an Audiotron as a back up but I was hoping that the DLNA functionality would allow me to either list these on Craigslist or send to the ski house in Vermont. Thanks for the feedback. Too often the cutting edge is the bleeding edge.

Any feedback as to the internet radio stuff. Any hope of adding say Spotify to the mix?
post #75 of 407
Hey guys - new here. Long time lurker. Anyway just got this receiver couple weeks ago.

I have TIVO HD, Blu Player, and XBOX hooked up so far. Tivo and Xbox seem to be fine however I'm seeing video 'black out' or drop for 2-5 seconds randomly when watching DVDs. During this time audio is fine. Any ideas? Anyone have similar experience? I have HDMI connections for everything.

And another question - maybe a dumb one - what kind of connections are needed to take advantage of the pass-thru. Meaning how to use Tivo without turning on the receiver if I wanted. Since right now I only have 1 HDMI going into the TV I don't know how that works(because on my tv there is only 1 input available - HDMI)

HDMI - you specify which HDMI input to the receiver you want to be diverted to HDMI output of the receiver when the receiver is turned off. So if you have your TiVo plugged into the HDMI "SAT" port then set up the pass-through to SAT. Now when the receiver is off the TiVo output will be sent to the TV.

Just wondering if one of the more experienced guys will look at my post (and someone else) on this thread:
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1441859/pioneer-vsx-1022-k-networking-issues#post_22649829

I found the answer to the Pandora issue... Just wondering about the other things.
post #78 of 407
Well good news/bad news:

Good News: Arrived promptly.

Bad News: Kind of ends there for me. I couldn't get any HDMI Output to my main TV. HDMI cables are good, receiver will output to second TV but not my Olevia 747i TV circa 2007/8. That's only five years ago. Not sure how to get it to work. I tried all the settings but no luck getting it to display anything on the TV. I suspect some sort of HDCP conflict. Same cables used on the secondary TV test. Stumped.

Moved it to my audio cabinet. Tried to get the Netradio code. No luck. Unit already registered? Good news is I have internet radio but I can only control via ipod touch ControlAV app. DLNA seems to be working although again I can only access via ipod touch (my eyesight is going to be completely washed away if this is the only manner of interfacing with the unit). Airplay is working. Although synchronization is an issue.

My set-up is a direct connection on the network through a switch back to my main switch. DHCP assigned an address and it gets through the firewall with no changes.

I am going to keep the unit at least until the end of the week and try to reach Pioneer during business hours. Luckily I am off starting Thursday but what a pain setting this up. I connected my Duet up through the coax but haven't figured out how to play that input.
post #79 of 407
I seem to be getting some inconsistent network stability issues with my VSX-1022-K (I've upgraded to the latest firmware from 11/26/2012):

1. ControlApp sometimes connects and sometime does not.

2. Seems that Airplay will only work right after the receiver has been turned on. Connectivity is maintained while I play the same album but once the album has finished playing selecting and playing a new album is only possible after a receiver power cycle.

I have a good wired & wireless network connection, I am confident that this is not a home networking issue since all the other devices on my network work fine.

Your thoughts and feedback appreciated.

How is your pioneer connected to the network? (I'm using a Linksys Home-Plug ethernet-over-power connection; it looks like a wired connection to the Pioneer).

ControlApp won't talk to the unit if the unit is off - unless you change the network standby config option. By default "off" turns off the network. That's the only time I've had trouble with ControlApp. I think that only one controller can be connected at a time, so if you try to do it from two devices then the second device won't be able to connect

How are you connecting via AirPlay? I have a Mac Mini running iTunes and that connects to the Pioneer just fine. Airplay, itself, is a little crappy - if the Pioneer decides to stop talking (eg you turn it off, you switch input, whatever) then AirPlay won't reconnect - I have to "stop" and "start" it on iTunes.
post #81 of 407
Pioneer receiver is connected to the network via a wired Ethernet cable, RJ45 to the router.

I'm connecting to Airplay from my iPhone via WiFi. Btw, when I connect my Apple TV to the receiver via HDMI (Apple TV network connectivity via wired Eth) and connect to the Apple TV via WiFi all is well, I use Airplay a lot and it is not crappy at all.

For now I continue to believe the VSX 1022 Airplay network stability is inconsistent. Has anyone else experienced this as well ?

Any suggestions?
New firmware is now available
Code:
This firmware update includes the following:

    Adds HTC Connect feature for compatible Android® phones.
    Resolves an issue with connecting to Pandora's server.

Please note that all network settings, including the your Pandora account information, will be reset to the factory default after the update. Write down these settings before the update as they will be needed to set up the network again.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Whomever updates the firmware please let us know how it works out. If Pandora works, I might go ahead and buy this AVR again. For $250 it isn't a bad receiver.

Minimum testing looks good. I can login to Pandora, it can see my channels, and music plays. I haven't tested beyond that...

That's good so far. When I had the 1022 I was able to log on to Pandora, but the sound was awful. I couldn't use my sub at all. I would only use my front two speakers, and the tweeter had a lot of static. I am this has changed.
post #86 of 407
I've been waiting for someone to come around who is using this receiver with a Tivo. Are you having the same audio issue I'm having with the loud pops of static when changing channels?
post #87 of 407
I am using it with a TiVo but have not had that issue.

Are you using the receiver to listen to the Tivo's audio? Do you have the Tivo set to Dolby Dig or PCM?

I am using the receiver. I'll have to check the settings tomorrow.

Is anyone using Airplay on the VSX 1022-K?

Seems that Airplay will only work right after the receiver has been reset/power cycle'ed. Connectivity is maintained while I play the same album but once the album has finished playing selecting and playing a new album is only possible after a receiver power cycle.

I have a good wired & wireless network connection, VSX 1022-K works great with Netradio and my i-devices work great with Apple TV
