2) does this unit support running just one HDMI to TV and everything connected to the receiver?
3) since its 1.3a HDMI, I'm assuming it supports 1080p/24Hz, right?
4) What are the conditions in order for the BLUE light to light up?

1. Yes, yes and yes
2. Yes
3. Pass Through
4. electricity and Power on the unit.

Hi,

I have been trying for the past two weeks to download the room EQ to my computer and it does not work. I first bought a Null modem cable that was missing pins 7 and 8, so I made one with all of the pins Pioneer says it needs and it still does not work. I called Pioneer Canada and they told me to try a straight through cable, which I did and it still does not work. I am using MCACC 1.4.

Was anybody able to transfer the measurement taken by the receiver to their computer. The error message I got was "Command error", If I use a straight through cable I get "send fail" the same message as if it was not connected.

If anyone was able to get this to work, I would like to know, because it is starting to look like a software bug with the new receivers, since someone compained about the same thing with is 94...

Thanks,

Pierre

I just finished setting up my 92. It replaced the Elite 82, and I really like it a lot. The extra features makes it much better than the 82. Have yet to hook it up to a HD disk player to test out lossless sound, but it definately is much nicer than the 82 for me.
post #124 of 1988
Had a few days with my 92 and i am very pleased. It will take me months to have the time to try all the surround settings though. I have to go and buy some SACDs now and have a good listen.
One thing that would be nice for someone to tell me is that the HDMI Control needs to be set to off. Then can setup all the inputs (BD etc). Once done you then can set the A Parameter and the V Parameter.
Hopefully this saves someone else some time.

Will this Receiver upscale to 1080p/24Hz? or just passed it through?

Thank you

Does anyone know if Pioneer honors US bought receivers in Canada for Waranty? I'm loving the 9120 (91 Elite) and now I'm drooling for the 92txh because microsoft sent me a HDMI equiped 360 as my last one fried. So now I have a PS3, PVR and 360, all using HDMI and I only have 2 inputs in the back of the receiver.

Or if someone got an awesome deal for the 92 in Canada, please PM me the price. Would I be able to get it for $1000can?

It passes 1080P/24, but scales on analog up to 1080P/60.

By the way, I have seen pics, about 15 posts ago, of someone hooking this up to a bitstreaming BD player. I am curious how much better the DTS-HDMA sounds compared to the core we keep getting (dynamic range, volume level, etc..). I also hear that the bitstreamed TrueHD sounds better than the player decoded PCM. Can anyone confirm this on their 92?
post #128 of 1988
Found the answer to my low volume problem. When I plugged in the PS3 with HDMI and put the Bluray DVD in uncompressed, it was a lot louder and cleaner. That must of been how it was auditioned to me and not realizing it. I don't think I can ever listen to a regular DVD again!
post #129 of 1988
yea i have noticed the hdmi volume is a lot lower than it should be, especially for movies. my xbox 360 is fine but hd dvd movies i usually have to bump up quite a few dbs to get decent volume.i have a toshiba a35 hd dvd player on order so i'm hoping its just an issue wit the add on drive, can't wait to try some bitstream audio and see how great batman begins really sounds dont get me wrong wma9pro sounds great but i know the limitations of that add on

mht503pro, my HDMI audio when it was uncompressed was a lot louder than "regular" hdmi audio.

I am running Klipsch RF-82's only currently and they don't seem loud to me. The only audio I have listened to so far has come from my Comcast cable box. Is this why? I have also bi-amped my speakers. BTW, they do sound awesome, just not as loud as I expected.

It's my first reciever/speaker combo so be gentle.

I know CGM and Yana in North and West Van carry the Elites. I picked mine up at Yana.
Also Audio Visual Unlimited is an Elite dealer.

Stupid question, but is anyone using the remote to control the Comcast Motorola DVR?

Yes that is why. My volume still sounds low unless I receive uncompressed audio(Bluray and go into setup and switch it to uncompressed). My old Onkyo HTIB receiver with stock speakers sounded louder, but not nearly as clear or have a much range which is expected compared to DT70002's, but the Onkyo's not having anything else near them still sounded great at the time.

mel22b,

nice pix!

i notice the lights on all of your speaker light indicator. I also have a 7.1 speaker setup but I never saw the "SBL and SBR" lights turn on. I have a panasonic BD player and a 92txh receiver.
post #137 of 1988
yea i will test it with the transformers hd dvd friday when i get my player and see how much better dd+ is. hopefully it's better, but i noticed it's not a lot louder but i hear a lot more stuff and music is amazing with this receiver
post #138 of 1988
can this receiver handle a 4ohm load? I have a pair of Vienna acoustics weberns which are 4 ohm nominal and was wondering if the 92 is capable of handling these speakers. Would it make a difference if I planned on adding more weberns to my set up?
post #139 of 1988
Chances are it will handle the speakers. However, I wouldn't run them too long or too loud or it will go into "protect" mode. I will be in same boat soon. I'm looking at polk lsi 9s. Soon after I get the speakers, Ill be looking into an amp.
post #140 of 1988
I am trying to decide on a 92. Any reasons why I should get the 94 instead? Other than the power being 140W per channel vs 130W, and the ethernet out, I do not see other difference between the two models. Did I missed something else ?

Only other difference is one more HDMI.

I believe there is a USB on the 94, and isn't the 94 wireless as well?
post #143 of 1988
Thanks for for your responses.

I don't think the 94 has wireless, the product description did not mention that.
The 4th HDMI is nice, but for the moment I only need 1, so I should be fine for the near future. The Ethernet port is good if I want to listen to internet radio.

I'll probably go for the 92, save a few hundred $ to finance a Elite BDP-95FD.
post #144 of 1988
Drool I want a new Elite
post #145 of 1988
Yeah, for me it's down to the 92 or the Yamaha RXV1800. I'm sure they are both great receivers. I belive the Yamaha will upconvert the 1080i analog output of my first-gen HDDVD player to 1080i HDMI. I wonder if the Pioneer 92 also will do that?

My #1 priority is the audio quality. I wonder how they compare in that?
post #146 of 1988
Product brochure says "Faroudja DCDi™ HD Video Scaling Up Converts Lower Resolution
Video Signals Up to 1080p".

I am thinking to have the Elite BDP-95FD do the up-convert instead of the 92.

I will tell you that the ethernet port is a nice addition. I had an 82 last year and had to bring it in for a firmware upgrade. Would have been nice to upgrade the firmware from home if need be. Plus, I hear the neural radio is pretty nice once you get it going. I own the 92 now and was just not totally thrilled with the extras, but someone may be. I will say, if the 92 had an ethernet for the same price, it would be the best seller around.
post #148 of 1988
You guys must have something set wrong. I have an 84TXSi and I have NEVER had it above -18. It just blows you out of the room at that setting. If I set it any higher I'd
have to go out in the yard to listen. Even the 917V in my bedroom has never been any
higher than -20 and that unit is much lower powered than the 84.

If you have any interest in using 1 remote you might want to rethink the Yamaha. I was unable to find anything that would work with mine other than the original remote. Maybe a Pronto or a similarly priced universal but I spent
hundreds on remotes with no luck. The Pioneer Elites, receivers and plasmas
are IMHO the best combo you can buy for under $10K.

Not necessarily. My 92TXH is usually at -17 for TV viewing and -15 or -14 for HD-DVDs. And I don't listen at reference levels.
