Pioneer VSX-527

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi!
New around here...
Have search around but didn't find an answer to my question...

So, i've connected a VSX-527 to an LCD with no HDMI connector (a rather old Sanyo SD LCD).
For that I used a composite cable.
The problem is that the amp menus are only visible on the screen if the connection is HDMI.
That said, I've been controlling the amp through Pioneer's ControlApp for Android - the only way I can surf the directories on the USB pen or the internet radios.
Today I read about something called AvNavigator, from Pioneer, but can't seem to find a way to download it - and can't even find out if it is compatible with my amp.

Can anyone shed some light?
Thanks!

Nuno

Thanks... but I was expecting a different advice... of course that buying a new tv solves the problem.
But that is not an option right now...

Unless you have an iOS device like iPad or iPhone, AvNavigator will not work. Does the front menu display anything?

Ok, so no iOS devices around here... smile.gif

The front menu only displays the selected input (IPOD/USB or NETRADIO or whatever).

By now I already understood that this will only be solved with a new tv... frown.gif
And that is not an option right now.
Guess I'll be controlling it with the android app for a while. tongue.gif

Thanks for everything!

Hi everyone.

I just want to quest how can I reset my VSX-527 receiver? I read in manual that I have to torn on the receiver, hold the Band and the Standby button at the same time for 2 seconds and after that it could shows Reset on the display. I tried it so many times, but it doesn´t work mad.gif Somebody who can help me or who knows different way to reset the receiver?

Thank you so much in advance

You turn the receiver OFF - then hold band and standby buttons.

Thank you so much, it works and it better now, but the sound quality is not the same as it was before the mcacc test. Do you know how can I totally clear the memory of the receiver? I think the memory of MCACC.

I would be grateful for some advice please. I have a VSX-527 and am about to buy some new speakers. I keep reading things about bi-amping and bi-wiring. I understand the principles of why it could/should be done but I don't know whether I could do it on the Pioneer. I only have one pair of speakers and I don't use Surround Sound. Could anyone explain whether or not it is possible with the VSX-527 and if so, how. Thanks you very much.
