Official Pioneer Elite VSX-92TXH thread - Page 60

post #1771 of 1988
marinesciguy -- I assume that you are using the Headphone connection on the front (behind the drop-down panel), and not the MCACC microphone connector. The head phone jack is the large (1/4" phone plug) one (not the mini sized) on the left side, and should be stereo (have a separate tip and a ring, in addition to the main part of the plug). The plug has to be pushed all the way in (until you hear, or feel, a positive click).

Most wireless headphone adapters don't use the large 1/4" phone plugs, but your Sony should have included a screw-on adapter with the wireless unit part. If the sound out of your VSX-92 is not muting, then the headphone plug isn't inserted all the way (or your VSX-92 is defective) -- provided you are using the correct sized plug.

You can test the Sony wireless headphones, if you have other audio equipment that also has a headphone jack.

Yep, using the large screw on one plugged in to the headphone (not MACC setup) hole underneath the front panel. Just double checked, it is all the way in. When I plug it in it goes from DD PLII MV +THX to stereo on the display and the sound only comes out of the front left and right speakers as opposed to all five. Still no sound from the headphones and no cut off of the speakers (aside from the surrounds and center).

Appreciating the help
post #1773 of 1988
Having to surrender and return the headphones, I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

The left and right channels do not shut off, even if I hold down the receiver button and hit the speaker button on the receiver.

When I plug in the headphones using the large jack in the front it switches to stereo like it should, but the left and right speakers don't actually cut out. Just to clarify, the other speakers do shut off, just not the left and right.

The headphones are playing fine, but it is completely defeating the purpose if the speakers are still on.

I'm really frustrated at this point, if anyone has any idea what the heck I'm missing I'd really appreciate the help.

Thanks.
post #1774 of 1988
Still refuse to let this thing die. I finally figured out the problem, I just don't know the solution.

When the headphones get plugged in, they cut output to the actual speaker outputs on the back of the receiver. I'm powering my center and rears through those outputs.

I have my fronts running through a 2 channel amp connected from the pre outs on the receiver. I have the sub connected through the sub out right next to the pre outs for the front L and R. Apparently when the headphones are plugged in, the receiver is cutting the speaker outputs, but not these pre outs.

Here is hoping someone has figured this out.

Can someone tell me how to hook up my klipsch RF-83 klipsch RF-63 for my mains im useing pioneer vsx92 thx. Is there a way to do this.THANKS
post #1777 of 1988
marinesciguy,
I thought you might want to know that I just ran into this problem myself. Seems as if there's a bug. I've got my VSX 92 powering my center/rear speakers and two monoblocks powering my L & R channels. Sure enough, when I plug in my headphones, all the speakers go silent except the L & R channels. The receiver switches over to stereo too...

[quote=CT_Wiebe;19070002]bgbball31 -- Your assumption is correct. The VSX-92 is a two+ year old AVR. None of the AVRs that were produced before this year (2010) are 3D capable -- they do not have HDMI 1.4 inputs and the necessary interface hardware to handle 3D signals. Only some of the newest designs are 3D capable, and not all 3D capable AVRs are compatible with all 3D BD players and/or all 3D displays. The interface standards have not been formalized yet.


I am looking at getting the 58VT25 and was concerned about this. Right now I have all my HDMI devices connected to my VSX92 and a single HDMI output going to my Panny TV. If the VSX92 wont pass a 3d signal to the TV how do you connect your ps3 and directTV units to the TV to get a 3d signal to them?

Do you have to connect the devices directly to the TV via HDMI and then run a separate audio cable from the devices to the VSX92? Could this cause lip sync problems?

TIA

Happy Thanksgiving EVERYONE!

I just hooked up my new Oppo 93 Blu-ray player to my Pio 92 and it keeps shutting the receiver down. I have the same settings that I used for the Pio BDP-51 and Panasonic BD-30 Blu-ray players. I was directed from someone on the Oppo 93 thread to check out the VSX-92 thread, which I used to use when I first set up my receiver. Any thoughts?
post #1781 of 1988
Haven't checked this in a while. Good to know that I'm not the only one topoftheroc. I was really starting to think it was just me. Anyone by chance found a solution to this yet? I'd love to spend some more time with my wife, but need the few brain cells I have left and can't waste them on Project Runway and lifetime movies for women.

Does the manual not go far enough into detail to connect speakers?
post #1783 of 1988
thptrek -- I don't have a PS3. For 3D you have to connect the HDMI directly to the 3D display. With a PS3, you would then have to use the COAX/Optical SPDIF output to the VSX-92 for the (lossless only) audio.

I bought the Pre-Release Oppo BDP-93 3D BD Player, which has 2 HDMI outputs. HDMI-1 would go to the 3D display and the HDMI-2 output would go to the VSX-92. The BDP-93 has to be set to output the audio to the HDMI-2 output.

captcraig -- Until the next FW upgrade is issued, the BDP-93 (pre-release) has a bug in the FW (ver. 26-1108) which makes the HDMI-1 output incompatible with some Pioneer AVRs.

The temporary work-around is to use the HDMI-2 output instead. This was pretty thoroughly covered in the "Official Pre-Release Oppo BDP-93 Owners" thread. It was first uncovered by a VSX-1120 owner. The HDMI-2 output works, as advertised. IIRC, this problem isn't unique to Pioneer AVRs either (some other brands were also having the same problem).

Please provide some more details. Do you mean that you want to connect both a pair of RF-83s and a pair of RF-63s to the R/L front channels? If so, why?

We need to know what you are trying to accomplish with your non-standard speaker hookup. That makes a lot of difference, if we know what objective you are trying to achieve. Without that information, we are just guessing at what you mean by your question.

As yamahaSHO pointed out, page 19 of your manual is pretty clear about "standard" speaker connections.

russtler -- The BDP-93 is not available for Public release (general sales) right now. Oppo is still working on the FW that will solve the problems that the beta testers and those of us that signed up for the "Pre-Release" versions (26-1108 FW version).

They were shooting for Christmas, but that is only a week away, and it's beginning to look like they may not make it. They are still madly working on it. Having worked on engineering development problems myself, I know what kind of roadblocks can crop up at the last minute. I will try to remember to post it here.

Oppo is cranking out the hardware and it should be up for sale as soon as they get the FW ready. It should be shortly after we get our Pre-Release FW upgrades. Fortunately Oppo has maintained excellent customer relations that is unique for any CE company.

The latest BDP-93 information will be posted in the Pre-Release thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1291855. BTW, post #1 contains all of the pertinent information on the performance characteristics of the BDP-93. The thread starter, Neuromancer is one of the beta testers and has done an excellent job of maintaining the Official Oppo BD player threads (both the BDP-83 and -93).

I did get an invite on the 93, but passed pending FW to see if issues that seemed somewhat specific to Pio gear would be resolved. I was hoping that you ran the FW available yesterday from Oppo, and could give us a report.

At least one poster, spacedave has reported some issues are resolved on his SC-37 receiver, but no reports from legacy Pio owners (92-94) yet, and I am told that the public release could be next week, therefore my query to you.

Thanks.

post #1789 of 1988
Hi folks,

Need some advice, please.

I have a Pioneer elite vsx 92, Panasonic Viera TH-46PZ85U and comcast dvr digital box attached via an HDMI cable.

When i turn the receiver, cable box and the TV on, somtimes the receiver says "muting" and i'm unable to use my cable remote control to change the home theater volume.

Any suggestions regarding this issue?
post #1790 of 1988
I need some help / advice. I'm curious what sound setting folks are using on this receiver. For the longest time, I've been using the auto surround or direct sound because it allows me to use the MAACC settings. however, I've never been happy with the sound. It is just missing much of the low range. I've recently moved to only using puredirect.

my speakers (M&K's K7 in front, k5 in back, 12"sub) suggest that you set the receiver to small with an 80 hz crossover. but correct me if I'm wrong, using puredirect "voids" all of this and just sends the full range of sound to each speaker (as decoded).

do any of you have the same problem. the difference in sound is really noticeable. I wanted to use the autosurround because I had a 7.1 set up, but now I've gotten around that by wiring the two rear speakers in series (they are 4 ohm, so it works).

would like to hear any advice of comments. have I set it up wrong that I get such a difference (I've rerun the MAACC setup again a few times, but it seems to have made it worse. I'll keep using the puredirect if I have to, but for what I paid for this receiver, you figure it could decode the sound better.
post #1791 of 1988
Have you tried THX? For the longest time I just tried different modes. If you are not getting the lows have you checked your subwoofer connections. I have all speakers set to small.
post #1792 of 1988
haven't tried THX, but it can't hurt at this point. Getting the firmware updated next week. not sure if that will help, but it will wipe my settings, so maybe if I start from scratch, it will help.
post #1793 of 1988
Anyone know what these things go for these days? (used obviously)

I've gone with solid state externals and I'd like to find a pre-pro a little smaller than this giant honkin' thing
post #1794 of 1988
I am noticing something that maybe someone on here can help me with. All of my components are hooked up into my Pioneer Tuner. I could be watching something on cable and then turn my Sony PS3 on without switching the tuner input and I will lose audio from the cable box. My cable picture will still be on the screen but just no audio. When I switch the tuner input from say HDMI2 which will bring up the Sony PS3 home screen, my audio returns.

So I am trying to troubleshoot why I keep losing audio when I turn the PS3 on while my cable box is actively on and tuner is set to Cable. I am only losing audio if the Sony Playstation is on the same time the Comcast Cable box is on. I have an Apple TV as well and I can have that on and continue to watch cable as normal.

So I am not sure if I need to bring the audio into the Tuner another way. There is no need to really have them both on at the same time, I guess I want to know why the audio is getting muted thats all.
post #1795 of 1988
Looking for help. I was playing with settings and now when in THX mode my only option is THX SELECT2 CIN, on Standard only option is Dolby Digital, on advanced I can choose any of the options.

What did I do??? Help!

Thanks in advance.
post #1796 of 1988
So there is no way to pass through a 3D signal through this thing?

Can't believe I need to upgrade my receiver already

You don't if you have a BD player with 2 HDMI outputs. Run one to the 92 for audio and the other to your display.
post #1798 of 1988
Yes that's the obvious workaround, buts it's nice to have everything running throught the receiver and switched by the receiver.

BTW, Xbox 360, PS3, and Comcast cable, all of which have 3D content which I plan on viewing.

Funny, I didn't even want 3D, but now that I have a TV that can do it well, I insist on trying it out for games and some select movies.

I guess I will just have to upgrade.
post #1799 of 1988
It's always nice to have a good excuse to upgrade.

I have the 92 as well as the SC-07. Fortunately my Kuro 5020 keeps me satisfied but the SC-37 Elite or the VSX 1021 both look nice.

I recently installed a 1020 and a 1120. If you stick with Pioneer you will find yourself in very familiar territory as the setup and menues are just a tad different.

...Comcast only offers DD so no loss there using optical for audio...
post #1800 of 1988
OK.
So as a temporary workaround until I can get a new receiver does anybody see a problem running all my sources into my TV via HDMI and run an optical out from TV to the receiver?

It's a Sony KDL-NX720 (2011 model)
