1.Is the Pioneer remote able to learn functions for Samsung LED/LCD TV's, thus my have only
1 remote to use for complete system?
I keep reading negative slant on Pioneer remote, and if it was just me , i wouldn't car, but have to be sensitive to my spouse...
Music Purist: The stream i use now from PS3 Media Server: stream music library to PS3, then to ONKYO AVR..
2.Will it be more "pure" to stream thus straight from library to 1222 AVR
, bypassing the PS3?
1. Yes, but TV functionality is very limited. I had mine programmed to run my flat screen and the only thing it would do is turn it on and off, raise/lower the volume and channel, and input select.
2. With the PS3 out of the picture then yes, theoretically it will be a bit more "pure", that is whatever interference/resistance it could pick up traveling through your PS3 and connecting cables.
I was overwhelmed with the remote the first few days I had it, but after reading / studying the user manual PDF it became easier as I learned the functions the buttons commanded. But, no backlight and smallish buttons are something that one must put up with, no learning curve will change it.

Are any of you using Harmony or other brands of universal remotes? Have not gone down that road in a few years, but may look
I really tossed this one around whether to get a full pre/pro amp combo, but at Newegg pricing, i had to jump.
Class D3 amplification I hope to make believer out of me.
First Pioneer product I think i have ever owned.
I use a harmony 700 to power on and shut down the electronics in the system, I use it to control everything but the receiver, the little screen on the harmony makes the menu pages deep for scrolling the receiver functions and it is a PITA, so I choose to use the Pio remote for it.
I am sure you won't be disappointed with the amps, I never expected to hear the sound quality improve changing from a Marantz sr6003 but I was greatly surprised/pleased when I noticed it. I am taking the time to learn the more detailed functions of the MCACC and as much of the extra features as I can cram into my grey matter and the more I study/learn about this receiver the more I am liking it.
And a special thanks to okibcn
who pointed me in the right direction / assisted me with proper setup, I really appreciated the help.
Seems like a good bunch of enthusiasts on this forum, one stands to learn a lot here if they want to.
Edit: I got my receiver back in September from Newegg and it came with the stickers and a disk with the owners manual PDF on it.
