    As stated whenever I switch inputs from say the Roku to the DVR I lose sound for sometimes only a min, sometimes it never comes back up. When I set the receiver to 'thru" sound works fine on the TV but unfortuately I have no ARC as my tv is older. Is there a setting im missing or is it just broken?

    I was pretty foolish in believing that the Comcast remote would be the all in one remote. I programmed the remote to control the receiver and it worked. The code used was one from the comcast remote control guide. Now, the Pioneer remote works like a ******. The power button and volume button...

    First off, hello, everyone! First post. I was wondering what your thoughts are on whether or not the Pioneer VSX-521k receiver is powerful enough to effectively drive the Mirage OMD-15 floor standers as fronts in a 5.1 set up. I know it probably isn't idea power output, however, I just was...
