Hey guys, to get the deepest, nicest bass should I set the fronts (JBL L890) to LARGE and the Sub (Roland KCW-1) to PLUS? I want the L890's to pump bass as well as get the real lows from the Roland so what should I set both crossovers at? Thanks!

This is going be totally dependent on your setup (equipment and room). But, simply sending the low frequencies to multiple, various drivers in different locations is not likely to make things better - but you can always try it and see if you like it.

If you really want to get the most from your sub, I suggest some sort of EQ solution like the SMS or a BFD.

I am trying to hook up my WII via component hookup. I have a component cable connected to my Mits WD-65732 and an HDMI cable hooked up both from the VSX-82txs. However, I can't get a picture from the WII. I have tried different component inputs, I have made sure the component cable from the WII works (hooked it directly to the TV), I have turned on video conversion, basically, I have tried everything I can think of. Do you guys think I have a defective VSX-82TXS?
post #1354 of 1630
Have you properly configured the amp to redirect the input from the component jacks? And do you have any other component driven devices that you could use into the same jacks? As in, make sure it's not the component output on the WII that's acting up...

I believe so. I have both component output hooked up and HDMI. The only setting I can find is a convert video setting which is on. I also hooked the WII directly up to the TV and it worked.

My Wii is connected via composite. Sometimes i have trouble as well. My receiver definitely has issues passing 480i content connected via component or composite through the HDMI to the TV.

I believe it could also be an issue with the TV not recognizing the resolution being passed from the receiver. I've got a Scepter 37. In my case the problem is often fixed by turning everything off and back on again.

Does it work if you unplug the HDMI cable?

I have my 82 hooked up to my LG LCD so that I can listen to the TV through the stereo speakers. When watching an SD channel, the display on the 82 says STEREO. When watching an HD channel, the display says DIGITAL. Does anyone know if there is a way to change the display? I would like it to read HDMI 1 (TV) or HDMI 2 (DVD), or whatever source I am using instead of stereo or digital.

No. The engineers at Pio thought it was more important to see the audio signal and processing than the source (because that can change with content within a source). The source is displayed very small above the big audio signal one - but it is fixed - its not the custom text you entered for your source.

It would be nice if this were configurable, and I felt the same as you when I first got my 84. However, after much use, I have to admit I look over to check the signal a lot so that is very useful information. I pretty much know what source I'm listening to.

I discovered something odd today with my 82TXS - well i'm not sure it's an issue, but i thought at the very least that this was very strange, and couldn't think of a single reason for it to be happening.

I picked up a copy of Avia - and when running through the Low Frequency Sweep tests (receiver set to standard Dolby Digital), i noticed that when testing the surround channels, there is absolutely NO audio crossing over to the subwoofer as the tones progress lower. With the front left, center, and front right channels, I can tell the crossover is working because the driver in the sub begins moving and increases as the tones go lower, but on the surround channels the subwoofer is dead quiet throughout the entire sweep, yet the surrounds continue to attempt to play it - so it's not applying a crossover to the surrounds at all...

Anyone know what on earth might be going on? i'm hoping i'm just missing a setting here or something. my setup is set to all large speakers with a crossover at 80Hz (which is what MCACC set for me), but even if I switch the surrounds to small, the sub still doesn't pick up for them on the lower frequencies.

My system developed a popping sound in all of the audio channels recently. It started shortly after installing a new DirecTV DVR. I've since deternined that it is coming from the 82. The problem is becomming more common and became virtually unbearable while watching a DVD in my Tos A1. I tried moving the AC plug from the AC strip, but to no effect. I'm guessing it's related to the power supply since the problem affects all audio channels simultaneously. I'm connecting both sources HDDVD/DVR via HDMI, fiberoptic audio from DVR and 5.1 analog from the HDDVD to 82. I've had the amp for a little over a year and things were great until a few months ago. FWIW, I'm using a Panasonic PTAE 900 U for the video via HDMI. Do I need to rip this thing out and take it to the hospital?

Hello fellow AV freaks! I was skimming for info on my recent purchase of the 82 and came across this site, great site BTW, and it caused me to come up with a couple of questions. I guess I should have researched BEFORE I bought, but you guys know how it is... So, I think I got a decent deal - 699.00 for a new one - I am replacing an Elite VSX 47TX. I'm also replacing my DV C36 with a DV 48AV which I'll be running through a Sony Wege 50" LCD RPTV 2004 vintage. The TV has 1 HDMI input...so, how do you guys recommend connectivity and 2 - are there potential compatibility issues with HDMI, component video etc...? I also have a Dish HDTV receiver and a regular X-Box I'll be using. As things stand with my current set-up I have no problems/everything works as advertised.

Welcome to the best place on the net for Home Entertainment info exchange. We really have to thank our fine hosts at AVS.

I will warn you, though, it is both a blessing and a curse. You will now lose many hours reading and sharing and you won't be able to escape the upgrade bug (which visits regularly).

As to your specific setup - I don't think I can help much as I'm all HDMI with no issues but if it works now - things must be okay.
post #1364 of 1630
for the welcome...

I've been into AV since my first purchase of an add on surround processor from Kenwood 20 years ago and haven't slowed down...it's a curse I tells ya!

I have yet to receive delivery of my 82/DV48 so I'm trying to alleviate any time or connectivity issues beforehand. BTW, I have a Sony KDF 50WE655 RPTV if that helps. I am not sure what version HDMI the TV has. I would like to get the best performance possible with all sources until I can afford a newer flat screen monitor...

I have a problem that I had previously thought was coming from my Blu-ray player but now I think it's the receiver. My player is a Samsung BD-P1000. It has all the latest firmware upgrades. I have it set to output 1080p and connected via HDMI. My display is a Sharp Aquos.
Sometimes when I pause the player and leave it on pause long enough that it shuts down, when I start to play it again the picture is filled with static and looks distorted. I had discovered that if I went into the player setup menu and switched it to 1080i and then back to 1080p it would fix it.
Well today it happened and I just had an idea that it could be happening when the receiver re-syncs with the Blu-ray player. So I went into AV parameter on the receiver and switched the HDMI from AMP to THROUGH and then back and the picture cleared up.

Am I correct in my deduction that it has to do with the receiver's HDMI syncing?

Here is a picture of the problem I'm talking about:

Hey all, I've got an Elite 74 and a set of Aperion Power Tower speakers. These speakers have built in 8'' woofers and are being used as my front speakers. I've set my front speakers to LARGE and the SUB to NO but don't seem to be getting much bass out of the 8'' woofers in the front. Also, the CROSSOVER is set to 80kHz currently. I performed the MCACC calibration and am using those settings. I welcome any input on getting these speakers to deliver the bass I'm expecting.

I believe the issue to be a receiver setting one because before I recently performed the MCACC calibration I was getting a good level of bass from the speakers. Details on the speakers can be found at aperionaudio.com.

Do you not have a sub? If you do, set the speakers to small. If not, turn off the crossover and see if that takes care of the problem (although, I would think sub "no" would do that).
post #1368 of 1630
Nope, no sub. I have two powered subs in the towers (8 inchers) so I need the full range signal sent to the fronts. I DO have the sub set to NO but am not getting the level of bass I used to get before the MCACC.

has anyone ever bi-amped with the 84 using the method in the manual...?

My 84 is B-amped using Klipsch RF-84 speakers as the mains. I'm pretty sure I consulted the manual when I did it..

How is the sound? Better/Noticeable? Does the receiver run hotter in that mode?

Actually I do think it sounds better. I ran the speakers normal for a while and then Bi-Amped them. I think the sound is a lot cleaner. Also, the EMI from the woofer is not feeding back into the tweeter because the tweeter is being driven by it's own amp. Just make sure your speakers are bi-ampable..

BTW The amp runs about the same temp wise. These things are built like tanks. As long as you provide reasonable amount of airflow spacing, temp shouldn't be a problem
post #1374 of 1630
alright, thanks for the info. I just got my 84 last week and currently waiting for my companion DV 48AV before I hook everything up. I have a pr of Polk RTI12's so I know they're bi-ampable, and I keep my receiver on the top shelf of the rack so airflow isn't a problem... Cheers.

I have a vsx-82txs, and when I play any blu-ray movie on my ps3, it says "unsupported video mode." 1080p works just fine in games and the ps3 menu, only when the blu-ray movie starts do I get this message. Connecting the ps3 directly to the tv (sharp 42" aquos) via hdmi it works fine. But hdmi to the receiver, and hdmi from the receiver to the tv, gives me that unsupported video mode message. Ive tried all sorts of settings in the ps3 menu... can someone help? Is there some setting I am missing?

Thank you for any help,
Alex

Try turning off 24fps support in the PS3...
post #1378 of 1630
THANK YOU!!! That turning off 24fps did it! Why is that? That doesn't mean I am missing out on something does it? Thanks again!

I have just purchased a new TV, Mitsubishi WD-65734 which support HDMI 1.3, and I have a Playstion 3. I have the Pioneer Elite VSX-82TSX receiver and I prefer to run the Playstation 3 using HDMI cables but the Pio does not support HDMI 1.3. Does anyone know if I will lose picture quality by running video through HDMI using the Pio to the new tv? Thanks!
post #1380 of 1630
There isn't any deep color content currently so you shouldn't lose anything.
my 82 supports 1080p/24 without issue.
There should be no difference but you could always a/b it if you felt like it.
