post #1801 of 1988
Or is it beneficial to run opticals from each source to the receiver?
post #1802 of 1988
I think you should only run 3d sources directly to the tv and everything else should run through the 92.

Even the sound from 3d sources should run to the 92 if possible. Typically, HDMI audio cannot be sent via digital from tvs (I think); at least not on mine.

I have some audio-dropout issues with both the new 'Tron Legacy' Blu and the 'Tangled' blu. Both have a quick drop-out roughly every 4-5 minutes. If I scan backwards the dropout will be in a different place so I know it's not the discs. (this while the DTS-Master track is playing) Obviously I'd first look to firmware on my BR player, which is an Elite 95FD, but I do have the latest (3.60) and Pioneer wasn't aware of an issue with these when I contacted them by e-mail.

I seem to recall this receiver having a problem with Disney's Chronicles of Narnia Blu that required a firmware upgrade.

Any ideas if this is the case with the titles I mentioned?? How do you do an upgrade? Do you have to send in the reciever?? Obviously I'd like to avoid that if possible.

Any input greatly appreciated.

You have to bring the receiver to a authorized repairshop for firmware upgrade. There is no way to do it yourself.

Hmm, thanks. What I figured. Is it typically a 'while you wait' situation or is that wishful thinking?

I have a vsx92 and seven speakers and a DD-18 sub I like to listen to music with EXT.STEREO on but there's no sound coming out of my surround sound back right speaker but when I press speaker B it works but then the L&R front speakers don't work can someone help me out to get all off my speakers to work.THANKS
post #1807 of 1988
be sure you have selected a 7 speaker setup in the setup menu and not 6 - that is 2 surround back speakers and not just 1.
post #1808 of 1988
I will try that when i get out of work today the same thing happen last night when i was watching CRANK 2 surround sound back right speaker had no sound. But it sounded amazing.

Go to Pioneer Canada or USA website. Find out which is your closest repair depot. You need to have your original receipt or ask Pioneer to send you an authorization letter to get your receiver updated at that facility. Pioneer will pay for the firmware update even if it is out of warranty.Take a copy of your receipt or letter and take it or send it to that facility. It should be done hassle free.

Firmware above is how Pioneer lists them for the full version file update.
Add to the info if you have any.
post #1810 of 1988
I find the sound in the previews i.e. Dolby Digital is better than when the bluray movie is playing i.e. Dolby Master HD. Anybody else find this? Would the firmware update fix this? Or should I bother.
post #1811 of 1988
I think they are just recorded at a higher volume making them sound different, not better.
post #1812 of 1988
My unit doesn't power on anymore for some reason. I tried unplugging and replugging into different outlets but still just stay dark. no lights or anything.

what could cause this? and how can I fix it?
post #1813 of 1988
The TrueHD track on this bluray will not play correctly through my receiver. All of the other audio tracks play fine though. I'm running everything through HDMI. Could this be a firmware issue with the receiver?
post #1814 of 1988
I watched it this weekend and it worked fine.

Watched on a PS3.

What issue are you having? What does it do when you try to play Transformers could you give us an example?

Thanks

So you hit the power button and nothing, no lights etc...

Correct, but then sometimes if I unplug the power and replug and it works again. Sometimes the unit is powered (lights up) but unresponsive to any inputs to change volume or input source. Very strange - sometimes it works just fine, and other times it just gets 'stuck' for some reason.

Sounds like you might have the "cold solder joint" problem known to occur within the 9x series of Pioneer receivers. I had the same issues with my old 94.

Pioneer has been pretty good at repairing the units at no cost to the owner. I'd go to their web site and find a local authorized repair center, as if it is the cold solder joint issue, eventually, the AVR will fail completely.

The audio breaks up, dialog moves around all the channels, it sounds a bit like crackling and skipping, almost as if the decoding is breaking up. I tried other blurays with TrueHD tracks and they work fine. I did a firmware update on my bluray player and that did not fix it so I have to assume it's either my AVR or it's a defective disc. The video plays fine though.

Just a guess but maybe a reset will help.

All your setting will be lost during a reset.

To Reset:
1) Switch the receiver into standby.

2) While holding down the SETUP button on the front panel, press STANDBY/ON. The display shows RESET NO.

3) Press the ENTER button on the front panel.

4 Select RESET using L/R arrows, then press the ENTER button on the front panel. The display shows RESET? OK.

5) Press ENTER to confirm.

OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver
has been reset to the factory default settings.

Does the display keep switching from "TrueHD" to something else everytime it breaks up?

Nope. It still says TrueHD.

Even if i take it to be fixed it will fail completely? if so, it probably doesnt pay to take it in to repair.

Sorry, wasn't very clear. If you have it repaired, it won't fail from the cold solder joint. If you don't have it serviced, eventually it will fail completely.

My 94 ran for several years after the service with no further issues.

This all assumes that it is the cold solder joint problem, but your symptoms are consistent with that issue.

Could you try Transformers on a friend's receiver to see if it works fine with theirs on TrueHD? That way you could eliminate the disc being bad and you'd know for sure it was receiver. Or do you know anyone else with Transformers and try their disc to see if theirs works on your system.

Thank you. I'm going to try something first. I'm going to change my bluray player to PCM instead of Bitstream and see if that works. This way, the bluray player will be doing the decoding rather than the AVR. If that doesn't work, I'm taking it to a friends.
post #1828 of 1988
that's an even better plan. If the player can decode it then it's not a problem with the disc which would leave the receiver. when was the last time the receiver's firmware was upgraded?

Well, that worked! The movie played perfectly. I just saved myself the time and trouble of having to take the AVR to a service center for a firmware update.
post #1830 of 1988
This transformer issue also happens with me. It also happens with the true hd track on monster vs. Aliens 3d....I took my receiver into get the new firmware and I still have the same issue with both movies....I kinda like bitstreaming for me it sound a tad better...I'm waiting to talk to the technician about this on fri cause apparently this issue should have been fixed with the new firmware ....I'll keep u posted
