In some other thread I read that this unit can decode SACD DSD over HDMI and USB. I tried to play a dsf file using a pen drive plugged into the USB port but it didn't recognize the file. Anybody tried this? Thanks.

The receiver can't play dsd files. DSD over HDMi from a SACD player works fine

That doesn't reset the MCACC / calibration settings, does it?

I didn't think so, but thought I would verify. Thanks.

Yesterday Pandora was down for some time. Now, when I try to access it on the Pioneer it shows "Connecting..." and never actually connects. Pandora is working on other devices. Anybody have any ideas about this? Thanks!
post #1538 of 1713
Dave, try just turning it off then holding down the power button. That seems to reboot the nic

Any one else seeing the Pandora problem? I will check when I get home.

That did it. Pandora's back up.

I looked in the manual and came up with the system reset procedure on Page 76. I was afraid I'd lose all my speaker, MCACC settings and everything else so I thought I'd ask here first. I didn't run across the "hold power button on" reset. Thank you.

I got it from this forum also. I have been having router issues and I use a static IP. But if I don't reboot the nic I can get back to the received through the apps or through telnet.

Ask that being said thanks avs for all we have taught each other.

anyone using ARC on hdmi on this device? i have arc enable on receiver and on tv to use their apps, but when i turn on the tv, the receiver keep switching the input to TV instead of cable.

That is ARC feature of TV forced receiver to turn to TV input in order for ARC audio be played back. The problem is some TV, e.g. Samsung TVs, turn ARC on whenever it is turned on rather than when its app it used.

I finally set this beast up yesterday after having purchased it in June. I'm currently running 7.1 bi-amp with Paradigm Studio 40's bi-amp, Studio CC470, active servo sub and matching rears. Since it's bi-amp, is there any way to also run Zone 2 by using the front-wide? It doesn't look like there's an option for that but just curious to hear what you guys have to say.

Sorry to tell you that passive bi-amp doesn't do anything. I don't use any zones, so I'm not sure about that one.
post #1545 of 1713
Since you are running 7.1 + bi-amp the fronts you have used up the 9 build-in amps. You can run Zone 2 (or 3) using the line out into a separate amp.

Hmm, didn't know about passive bi-amp until you mentioned it. I only know of bi-ampping from the Pioneer and Paradigm manual that I read last night. Having just read up more on the subject, I'll try just hooking it up to one set of speaker post output and see if there's a difference.

Thanks!

You will need an external amplifier if you need / want more power.

Audio Dropouts

I recently replaced my 14-year old Pioneer VSX-24TX with this receiver (a bit sad - it was a fantastic receiver!). Previously my Tivo Premiere was hooked up via HDMI directly to my Pioneer KRP-500M and with an optical audio connection to my VSX-24TX. It worked perfectly - never an issue once. With the new receiver, I have the Premiere going to the receiver via HDMI only, with the receiver connected to the TV via HDMI. I am now getting periodic audio drops when either first turning on the receiver (no sound) or performing a function on the TiVo (pausing, fast-forwarding, etc.). I read through the forums here and couldn't find anyone else experiencing this problem.

Any recommendations on what to try?

Thanks.

How long is your HDMI cable? Is it like you have no audio for few seconds and then it comes on?
post #1550 of 1713
The cable from the TiVo to the receiver is about 10 feet, and the one from the receiver to the TV is about 6 feet. Audio does not come back on until you go into the TiVo main menu or power cycle the receiver.

I would try a shorter cable(<= 6ft) between your tivo and the receiver.

Make sure you are using the latest and correct cable. Length may not be a problem if so.
post #1553 of 1713
What do you consider the "latest and correct" cable? The cable I have connecting the TiVo to the receiver is a 4-year old Rocketfish HDMI cable. The one I have connected from the receiver to the TV is newly purchased from Monoprice. Have they made any changes to cables in the last 4-5 years?

Thanks.

Make sure both HDMI cables are marked "HIGH SPEED" on them.

Also verify that you have the firmware on both the 1522 and your device are the latest version. The 1522 latest firmware is only available on Pioneers website. It has to be installed by usb. Verify your firmware versions after updating to make sure you have the current version installed.

With HDMI Cables things are much simpler. For home theater applications, there are two choices with a single option for each. The two choices are:
High Speed HDMI Cable - This is a cable designed to handle 1080p and 4K resolutions. It is required to have a bandwidth of at least 10.2 Gbps, which is enough to process all but one of the features in HDMI at the same time, including 3D, 48-bit Deep Color, Audio Return Channel, and any type HDMI supported audio signal. The one feature it cannot handle is the HDMI Ethernet Channel.
Standard HDMI Cable - This is a cable designed to handle 720p/1080i resolutions and capable of a total minimum bandwidth of 2.25 Gbps. Standard HDMI Cables can handle some of the HDMI features, but not all at the same time like a High Speed HDMI Cable can. The one feature it cannot support is the HDMI Ethernet Channel.

Hi, all. I have a question for you: do you, especially those who have upscale Bluray players like the oppo's, let the player or the 1522 do the video processing????

I have a Sony S790 player, and I'm having a tough time deciding which would do a better job of VP.

Thanks

Pretty sure the video processor in the AVR is the same as the OPPO.

I have a Pioneer BDP 150 and I use the Pioneer avr processing. I would do the same with an OPPO, and didn't buy an OPPO because everything I read led me to believe I'd being double for the same thing.


I use the avr for all my boxes video, and all my boxes audio. I did take some calibration numbers for color adjustments to input into my projector. But that's it .

Do some Googling- there's tons of info available and many different points of view.

if you have 4k tv, S790 offers 4k upscaling which this AVR lacks (but can pass through). Otherwise, the video processor in this AVR will be better than the one on S790.

Thanks for the feedback. I just couldn't find any professional review of the 1522K nor the SC-65 concerning their VP performance.

It's interesting that you said you would let the 1522K deal with video processing even if you had the oppo player. While the chips in both units are same, I would think Pioneer and Oppo would have tweaked them differently to produce different output visually. And the oppo players are well known or their video and, recently, audio performances.

Thanks again for your input.

The video performance of the S790 is pretty good, per professional reviewers. But I guess it's not as good as the QDEO chip in the 1522k.

Thanks for your input.
