Is anyone having issues passing Dolby Vision through the Pioneer Elite VSX-LX301? I have done the manual firmware update to version 2109-6050-7090-0010 through a usb stick and it’s not helped. I have two dolby vision bluray players that have no problem getting a dolby vision picture to my LG TV when connected directly, but I lose it when trying to go through this receiver to the tv. The TV will just show “HDR” instead of “Dolby Vision”.
One of the players has two hdmi outputs so I passed one to the tv and one to the receiver (for audio), but then I had a lip sync issue where I saw the talking or explosions before I heard them and I coulnt fix it no matter what I did with the tv or receiver options.
Pioneer told me that I needed to have some audioquest premium hdmi cables and they had to be less than 10 feet long. I got some belkin ones instead that say dolby vision on them and say they are like 41gbps, but still no dice (because I couldnt find the exact cable).
Here is the firmware update notes from a previous firmware:
- Adds support for pass-through function of Dolby Vision signal.
- When set up "HDMI Out" to "MAIN+SUB", the Dolby Vision video is available from only HDMI OUT MAIN terminal.
- This particular firmware update is only available via USB installation.
Is my issue possibly because I missed that update and a few others? I was previously on 2099-5040-7080-0008, but assume the latest firmware should include this previous updates. Help would be greatly appreciated, I can’t seem to find anything about this on the net.
