UPDATE: In reference to the Chromecast built in and Airplay features. I just got off the phone with Pioneer tech support and both Chromecast and Airplay with Pioneer -- ONLY support Audio --- NOT Video
!!! The tech I talked to said that Chromecast only supports audio, I said 'everything online says it supports video and audio', she put me on hold and conferred with other tech and came back to me and said that Pioneer's Chromecast and Airplay only will support Audio. I mentioned that they may want to say that in their documentation, the box says ChromeCast built in (to me that implies full functionality)LINK http://www.google.com/chromecast/built-in/
If not then the documentation should state Audio Only. UPDATE: Looking at Pioneer's website now, the Chromecast feature lists "Chromecast built-in, so you can use your mobile device to stream your favorite music, radio, or podcasts to your speaker". I could swear that was not there before, maybe they updated the website because of my call earlier today.
The basic manual that comes in the box mentions nothing about Chromecast and the Advanced manual (that you have to download online) says very little and nothing about it being audio only.
Kind of deceptive Pioneer, because of how its listed on the box, should say audio only.
So I'm going to return the LX 102, there have been a few things that were misleading or just didn't work. The ARC feature (yes my TV has an ARC HDMI input) does not work correctly when CEC is turned on. I dont want to always listen to TV in surround with the receiver on so you're supposed to (with CEC on) be able to turn the receiver off and then just use your TV or sound bar. It works for about 1 minute then the video cuts out and the TV goes to a "no input signal". Long post but since this receiver is newer and not much out there about it I wanted to list these faults so others can know what they're getting into.
1. ChromeCast and Airplay will ONLY play Audio .... NO video.
CEC / ARC feature doesn't seem to work correctly.
When watching a 4K / Blu-Ray / DVD. The main display on the receiver shows what input the signal is coming from (BD/DVD). You can push the 'I' button and then it shows the playback info on a HUD on the TV, 7.1 sound, Dolby True HD, ect. At this time the main display also shows Dolby True HD but then switches back to the input. (See pictures below)
I wanted the receiver to display the Audio output, Dolby ATMOS, True HD ect on the main display ( all the pictures online show this). It may be a trivial thing and I know its an AVR (processes both audio and video) but to me the TV shows me the video so the receiver should display the audio, not on some popup screen. This is an Elite receiver after all, supposed to be for those that are willing to pay a little more for advanced / special features not on a normal unit.
I hope this helps anyone considering this unit.
